Adriel: IT Specialist, Health & Fitness Enthusiast

Fitness is really important and not only for workers. For a long time, I’ve always admired people who strive to improve their health and fitness lifestyle. I’ll be sincere that I’ve been hard on myself for a while. I ask myself if they have more than the same number of hours in a day to be productive and make a conscious decision to live a healthy lifestyle.

Some weeks ago, I decided to feel inspired and went ahead to interview two wonderful people on their healthy life choices. The first was Adriel Gavazza and you’ll learn more about him in this post.

5 Tips to Improve your Communication with a Co-worker

I receive several questions from time to time from readers which sort of relate to how to deal with another employee at work or a boss. Most times, it all boils down to communication which can be quite tricky because everyone is unique and there is no one way to treat everyone.

And it dawned on me. I’ve been giving advice to my readers on how to work with people, for the benefit of others it’ll be a great idea to share general manners on how to communicate with co-workers in the workplace.

Giveaway: I Partnered with JORD Wood Watches!!

A few weeks ago, I logged into my customer account and checked my pending orders; the wristwatch, which I had ordered four weeks back, was yet to arrive. For a minute, I panicked. Now, this is a true story!

Prior to that, I had never had any reasons whatsoever to request a refund or start a dispute, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. For privacy reasons, I’ll withhold the name of this international company. Also, I’ve had quite a lot of positive shopping experiences with this company, so no hard feelings.

The Workaholic Series: Jane’s Early Morning Traffic to Work

For a while, I’ve been looking to start this segment on the blog. I’m so excited to share with you: The Workaholic Series. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I’ve enjoyed creating and planning this segment.

On what to expect, you’ll have the opportunity to read relatable stories on the life of workers. There’ll be hilarious stories, serious ones and from time to time you can expect one or two jokes.

This segment will have more of story telling depicting reality in a bid to juxtapose life in diverse settings. Please bear in mind that most of these stories will be fictitious. Where otherwise, I’ll be glad to state so.

I’ve always wanted to do this and I’m so excited to get the ball rolling. I hope you enjoy!

Learn How Millions of People Negotiate at Work

When many people hear ‘negotiation’, they think a pay increase, but it shouldn’t be. Is a salary increase the only thing that can be negotiable in the workplace? From my experience, it isn’t. I’ve been able to negotiate other things from time to time.

If everyone shared the same belief and thought like we did, life might have been somewhat easier to navigate. Reality check— that’s not so! Learning the art of negotiation is the only way out.

At work, you’ll encounter various types of people with diverse personalities. It becomes imminent that negotiating your way around things and reaching a compromise mutually benefiting to both parties is the proper way to handle affairs in the workplace.

Some people are not aware of this and believe that everything should go their own way, but since you are a member of the Zinny Factor community, I’ll be sharing a few ways I’ve learned to incorporate the art of negotiation.

DIY | Personal Finance | Natural Hair

A few years ago I transitioned to natural hair for several reasons. One of the best parts is having to take care of my hair myself. This has helped me save money and improved my personal finance (at least in the aspect of hair care).

I can’t say it’s been extremely easy to make my hair myself, but in this video, I have shared my tips on how I’m able to do this.

Disclaimer:
DIY is not for everyone depending on how busy your schedule is. It’s okay to visit the salon once in a while (those are professionals), but if you want to live within a budget as a worker, then you should be willing to do some things yourself once in a while.

I hope this video inspires you and I hope you enjoy watching. Let me know in the comment section whether you make your hair yourself. What other thing do you do yourself?

How to Support a Colleague while Respecting their Privacy

A few days ago, I had an interesting chat with a colleague and we really talked about the workplace and respecting privacy. No doubt, maybe because I’ve been blogging about the workplace for quite some time, such conversations seem to interest me.

Most workers are lucky to have found true friendships with co-workers. All the same, one must remember to treat the workplace as such and not get carried away with growing friendship, especially, so that you don’t feel somewhat disappointed when you notice the slightest hint of competition at a later date.

Generally speaking, it’s not uncommon for colleagues to grow great bond and fondness especially if they share similar views and opinion to certain areas of interest. And let’s not forget that most workers spend an average of thirty-five hours a week at their various workplaces.

4 Celebrities who Drastically Changed their Career (They are Inspiring!)

Celebrities are loved. That’s why they are famous and I have some celebrities that inspire me. Don’t you?

So many times I sit still and just think! I don’t think that’s creepy if you think it is anyway. Since I started blogging, I’ve had a handful of time to sit and try to be creative. I guess that’s what creatives do.

And many times I wonder what it’s like for other people who might have changed careers.

Since changing my career from law to human resources, I’ve also been able to add creative, blogger and writer as some professions of mine. Isn’t that cool?

And I’ve also thought of what it’s felt like for other people who aren’t ‘professionals’ but still have a career they build.

Jackline: Nurse Practitioner & Personal Style Blogger

In this feature, Jackline shares useful information on personal style at work. We had planned to have this interview for a while but our schedules kept conflicting. We later did have a chat and I’m so excited to share it with you.

It’s a small world really because I later bumped into Jackline at a place I would never have imagined. Let’s just say I went somewhere I wouldn’t have normally visited and there was this inspiring woman!
