Smile

The most important way to make people like you is to smile. That’s because smiling is often times the first opportunity we can take to build a connection with someone. Instead of looking down or away, look at the person and smile.

A smile is a friendly way to say hello and usually, the person will smile back. By wearing a smile on your face, you’re giving the impression that you’re friendly and approachable.

Remember A Person’s Name

When you meet someone and get their name, that’s a precious thing! Repeat it to yourself over and over trying to link their name with their face. Do you know why?

People love their name. They don’t always like the way it sounds or sometimes they wish they were named something else. But nonetheless, it’s unique to them and is part of their identity. Therefore, when you smile and greet someone by their name, it shows that they’re important.

You remembered them and it shows. It also lets them know that you view them as a person and not just a clerk or a worker. Read more

How Smiling Will Change Your Life & Transform Your Relationships

Smiling will change your life

At one of my previous employers, people thought I was nuts. The reason for this is because I always smiled. So many people in that store were miserable and hated their jobs. I was one of the few that always wore a smile, no matter what.

A smile is a friendly way to say, “Hello.” In retail, it’s a great rule of thumb to greet every customer that comes within reach. Simply saying, “Good morning,” with a smile makes you stand out from the rest. However, at peak seasons there may be too many people to say hi to. That’s when a smile comes in handy.

But there are other benefits of smiling also. A smile gives off a warm feeling. Next time you go to the stores, look around. Are there more people smiling than not? Then, try this. Smile at everyone you see. Most of the time, they’ll smile back. It’s a pretty cool thing. Read more

Do These Things Before A Big Purchase

We’ve all had a moment in our lives when we’ve had to make a big purchase. However, there are some things you want to make sure you do before a big purchase. I’m going to make sure you’re aware of these things to help ensure you’re making a great financial decision for your life and your family.

Do Your Homework.

I don’t want you to overspend on an item if you don’t need to. For example, if you’re going to buy a phone then buy one that has all the functions you need. But don’t buy one that has more than what you need. You’ll end up paying more for functions you may never use.

The same goes for a car, computer, or anything else.

Do your homework before you spend your hard-earned cash. This is especially true when it comes to financial investments. You don’t want to just hand over your money without knowing what you’re truly getting into.

If you have any unanswered questions, don’t buy it until you’ve answered all the ins and outs. This is to protect yourself and your pockets. Read more

Why Some Budgets Don’t Work

Having a budget in your life is a great way to ensure you’re making the most out of the income you worked so hard to earn. There are many people who live by budgeting and can attest that they work.

Nevertheless, there will always be reasons why a budget may fall apart. Everyone is different, thereby making all the reasons different. However, the following reasons have made many budgets fall apart and left the owner wondering, “Why don’t budgets work?”

Your budget is too complicated.

When budgeting, you want to make sure every dollar gets an assignment. That means every dollar you earn should have a place you’ve designed it to go.

That being said, you don’t need to go into too much detail. For example, when I write my budget I label a portion for “food”. I don’t label a portion for the bread, rice, and spaghetti. That would overcomplicate it and eat too much of my time. Read more
