Keeping the Office Looking Spick and Span, Inside and Out

Your office space is what many of the potential clients or colleagues that enter it will judge your whole business/ work style on. It is one of the aspects of your job/ business that will make them decide to enter into business with you, or avoid you entirely.

Simply, your office space can either help your business, or it can hinder it. As I’ve stated previously, your work space can determine how your co-workers treat you as well. To ensure that it is very much the former, make sure to read on.

The Best Ways To Survive Working In A Customer Service Role

Being a millennial, it means you are unfairly maligned at points, you are described as lazy, entitled, and apparently we expect something for nothing. Yet, the vast majority of career go-getting millennials find themselves working in customer service roles, namely contact centers.

This may not be how most people view a career, especially if you are working in an environment where your efforts are not recognized, but, for lots of people looking to make something of themselves, either in industries like insurance, or customer service, this is a necessary evil.

Do You Feel Safe In Your Job?

This might seem like such a broad question to ask, but do you truly feel safe in your job? Not safe as in your physical safety, but in other aspects as well. Do you feel mentally stable? Is your job secure? Do you feel happy coming into work each day?

Your mental stability is so important and your job or workplace plays an active role in how you’ll generally react. If you’re feeling unsafe, it should naturally result to stress and could affect how you treat loved ones or people around you.

What to Take Care of Before Retirement

So many times I’ve had to think of what life will be like after retirement. You are probably puzzled and wondering why I’ll be thinking of this when I’m not even so close to turning thirty!

The truth is that I can’t quite help it. I wouldn’t call myself much of a planner, but I do think of the future.

I follow some finance blogs, I read a lot about finance these days. Since relocating and having to learn about the credit system, mortgage and all that, it’s become important that I do since the only family I now have here, is that which I started haha: husband and I.

I try to learn more about savings, investments, etc. just to keep myself abreast.

If you have the Fear of Phone Conversations at Work, You can Overcome it Now!

I had something close to a heart-to-heart talk (phone conversation) with someone in the past and I’ll never forget what this person told me. He said: “Everyone has their own struggles no matter how trivial it may appear.”

And quite honestly, I felt this soothing calmness in my nerves.

For one, I was very relaxed to know that he actually appreciated that I might be going through my own storms even if it’s not worth anything to him, depending on what his life encounters have been and what he sees as a challenge or not.

The Secrets to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

For the longest time, I didn’t know that it had a specific term attached to it but I certainly knew that there was something more to it. If you find it difficult to appreciate your achievements no matter how minute. If you consistently find it difficult to accept praise or believe that you are good enough.

If you find it difficult to internalize that you are good enough or fail to appreciate your effort, but rather choose to measure your success with that of others or compare your ‘success’ to that of another, then it could be that you are suffering from Imposter Syndrome.

The Workplace Culture Of The Construction Industry: Not Just Bricks And Mortar!

*This is a collaborative post.

From the perspective of both employees and employers, the working environment is something that can dictate the overall feel of an office. Regardless of what type of working scenario it is, the issue of office culture inevitably crops up, and that’s not to say that it is exclusive to office environments.

The construction industry, the healthcare industry, or any industry that you can think of, has its own unique environment. Working in a construction environment is not too dissimilar to any of the working environment.

An Effective Guide to Taking a Sabbatical from your Business/ Work

*This is a collaborative post.

There are times in life when you just need a break.

If you have been working on your business for years, forgoing holiday celebrations and vacations in favor of pursuing your business goals, then there’s a good chance you’re long overdue a break. Business owners who don’t take time for themselves will soon find themselves facing burnout, and everything they worked for in their business will soon suffer in turn.

However, the majority of small business owners don’t take a break; never mind the kind of extended break that might truly help them reset and recuperate from the years of work. The reason that small business owners don’t like to take time off is because they worry about what will happen to their business if they do.
