Change Your Life By Changing Your Career: How You Can Benefit

Many of us have a day job of some sort and might need a change. It may not be the standard nine to five, but what you find is that in order to make ends meet a good portion of your day will be dedicated to some form of job or money making the opportunity, am I right?

6 Awesome Facts That Nobody Told You About Nursing

It takes a very particular person to become a nurse and that should be facts! Or what do you think? Like many professions that require devotion to the well being of others, it’s more than just a job.

It’s a calling. You may be in your youth, looking for a path to travel, and an avenue through which you can grow in your knowledge and skills.

Or perhaps you are well into your career but don’t find it as rewarding or meaningful as you had once hoped and think that it’s better to be at the bottom of a ladder you want to climb than half way up one that you don’t.

How To Balance Your Side Hustle With A Full-Time Job

I’ve been multi-faceted since I can last remember, little wonder I like the idea of discussing how to balance life with your side hustle. Or how to balance your side hustle with life’s obligations.

Growing up, I loved writing, acting, drawing, reading, styling hair, painting and so on.

I also tried out make up for a while even though I don’t really play around with those these days. I can keep writing about all the things I love to do but I’m sure you get the point.

When I’m not spending time updating this blog, you’ll find me working with a client, writing for other platforms, taking pictures alongside my husband for obaallen.com. I happen to be a second shooter for him these days and I love it!

Communication occurs in our everyday lives and is therefore inevitable in the workplace. It’s something we all have to do and need to pay so much attention to. Communication isn’t just about what is said verbally, but also includes nonverbal cues.

This is enough reason why it should be so important to improve communication in your workplace, in order to avoid any form of miscommunication where necessary.

The risks of miscommunication are not worth realizing in a work environment. It can create challenges such as a conflict between members of staff or lack of trust. Negative communication can also have an effect on the morale of employees and may create a situation where employees or departments begin to work in silos.

The Psychology of Hair and Self-Confidence + The Elite Hair Company

I’ve partnered with The Elite Hair Company to ask this question: “does the appearance of your hair have an impact on your level of confidence?” I’ve asked myself this question a number of times and I seem to agree that it does.

Certain ways to boost your level of confidence if you lack one have been discussed in the past. But let me share a quick story.

When I was much younger, around age five to ten, I was a really smart kid. Free and happy to share ideas. I asked a lot of questions too− those type of questions that became tiresome to most parents!

It was all well and good until I went to high school and my level of confidence reduced drastically.
