There are a lot many benefits, but in this post, I’ll just stop myself at seven.

1. Good listener: If she can read a book for hour’s all together, she would be more than interested to patiently listen to you.

2. Buying gifts for her is easy: Obviously, she would love a book; all you need to know is her favorite genre or author.

3. Good memory: This means she would remember all the important dates, including your mom’s birthday.

4. Curious: Anyone who enjoys reading is always interested in knowing or learning about something new.

5. Teach you things: Since she is well read, she obviously knows a thing or two that you don’t.

6. Fine spending time alone: All a reader needs is a good book and a nice and quiet place to read it.

7. She will encourage you to read: Which will not only increase your knowledge but is always better than watching some meaningless chick-flick together.

In my field, kids have meltdowns frequently. What happens to kids during this stressful time? They lose complete control over their emotions for whatever reason they are faced with. The main thing to understand is kids are learning. They have not mastered the art of social skills. The art of controlling their emotions isn’t fully developed at this time.

5 Simple Tips that will Revolutionize your Thoughts on Public Speaking (2 min read)

There are a very select few people that have absolutely no problems speaking in front of a crowd of people. One of the best speakers I have ever known, my dad, once told me, “It doesn’t matter how many times I have given the same speech in front of the same people, I will always have a butterfly in my stomach.” To this day that is something I think about every time I speak in front of any kind of crowd. You know what, that butterfly is totally ok. Check out our first tip!

1) Everyone is nervous!! So what!! Don’t let the nerves get to you. This is the most obvious tip that anyone could give you. You will then look at them and roll your eyes with the classic cliche of “Easier said than done.” I want you to take a look at your situation from a different point of view, though, every single person that is sitting there about to listen to you has and will have to speak in front of people at one point or another, and every single one of them will be full of the butterflies. Why does this even matter? They aren’t up here right now!  It means that they understand. They get it if you have a stumble here or there. You don’t have to be 100% perfect in every inflection and pronunciation. In fact, if you do stumble over a word, laugh about it! Being a real person makes you easier to listen to. Let’s be clear, though, you don’t have free reign to bumble through this speech, which leads me to my next point.

2) Be prepared. Stumbling through a speaking opportunity is the fastest way to lose your audience. They will spend the entire time you are on stage thinking about how you just can’t seem to get it together. The way to combat that problem is to make sure that whatever happens you can roll with the punches. By roll with the punches, I mean that if something were to change and throw you from your “scheduled speech” i.e. Someone has an important question that diverts the direction you were headed. If you know your material so well that even a screaming baby can’t throw you off your game, then you are ready to get on stage. The best way to be prepared is not to have everything written down word for word. This lends itself towards the stumble. If you are even slightly off with a pronunciation or misread one word you have written it can derail your flow and wreak havoc. However, if you have main points written down and you have prepared and studied your subject, then whatever happens in front of you, it can be taken in stride and your speech is like a single flowing river.

3) Practice. You may be saying you just told me to be prepared! Practice and preparation are hands in hand, yes, but the act of practicing your speech is so integral that it deserves its own bullet point. More important then the act of practice is the method. As I have mentioned before knowing the speech word for word is going to cause stumbles and “um’s”. Practice doesn’t mean to read it 153 times. You need to be in front of people! Grab a spouse, a son, a daughter, even a stranger and deliver your speech to them. Be clear, though, you are not looking for feedback from them. YOU need to get used to being in front of people. Period. Doesn’t matter who. The feedback will come later in another point.

4) Get Feedback. You can’t have feedback from just anyone, though. That’s why we don’t want to hear the feedback that the stranger has to give. Let’s get our feedback from someone that we know will be totally honest. That knows the subject that you’ll be speaking on as well as anyone. You! We all have a smartphone or a webcam on a laptop easily at our disposal these days. Be sure to set it far enough away that you can see all that is around you as well because those hands you got moving all around need to be captured as well.

5) Be Yourself! This is the most important and also the hardest one to follow. Once on stage everyone wants to become this expert. Let me tell you something, experts are BORING!! No one wants to listen to someone drone on and on, but the guy or gal that everyone in the office knows and loves already, that person is way easier to listen too. You don’t have to be hilarious or crack jokes, (in fact I don’t recommend that) but if you are certain to be you, you relax and instantly become easier to listen and relate to.

These are just a few quick steps and there will be and are more tips on my blog at theartofbeingunforgettable.wordpress.com.

The Importance of Being A Lady (1 min read)

Elegance. Class. Character. Manners. The world today is filled with tabloids and reality shows, hardly any of the headliners on a regular basis even somewhat allude to one of the four words that can all define and describe a lady.

To be a lady is an art. To be a lady is to be cherished. To be a lady is to be respected. It may not be easy, but the life of a lady is one well spent.

I’m Devoreaux, a style and etiquette blogger at The Prep Pursuit. I often talk about the difference between a woman and a lady on both my blog and my YouTube channel. Every female is a woman; but not every woman is a lady. A lady is defined as a woman who is polite, refined and well-spoken in everyday encounters.

Growing up in the southern region of the United States, I’ve never considered anything other than being kind, respectful and pleasant to others in daily life. But the older I get, the more I find that my outlook on life is rare. I’m trying to change that. Bring back class and manners. Make it cool again.

The most important thing about being a lady is that you put others first. The golden rule stays true throughout all thoughts and actions, always do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Being a lady is a challenge, but the life of a lady is certainly well worth it and always an enjoyable one!

6 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Accepting a Job Offer (2 min read)

Written By Millionaire’s Digest Team Member: Brittany Fex

Whether you are an active job seeker or not, the idea of committing to a future working in the unchartered territory is stressful! Saying yes to a job that doesn’t support your career goals may reduce your motivation and add unnecessary stress to your life. But saying no may mean missed opportunities for personal and professional growth!

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before saying “YES!” to a new job.

1. What is your motivation for accepting a new job?

Hate the job you’re in? Jumping at the first job offer you get may lead you to hate that job too.  Looking to expand your experience? Make sure that you’ll be getting the experience you want before saying yes! Time for a change? Change is good, go for it!

2. What are your short-term goals in a job?

Do you want to improve your client service skills? Learn more about human resources? Short term goals are just as important as long-term goals. Identify some short term goals to help steer you toward your end goal.

3. What is your career end goal?

It’s okay if you don’t know. Pick a ‘ballpark’ end goal. Do you want to manage people? Be a successful writer? Teach? Be an expert in accounting? Identify what you are working towards and start building the path thereby accepting jobs that will help with your personal and professional development.

4. Will this job add valuable skills and experience to your resume?

Any experience is a good experience. But don’t settle for just any experiences. What skills and experiences can this job offer you that will help you reach your short-term and long-term career goals?

5. What do you value most in a job?

Do you value autonomy? Challenges? Opportunities to work in a team environment? Do some research. Interview your interviewer and find out if your values are the right fit for the job they are offering you.

6. What work-related activities keep you from staring at the clock?

Do project base activities keep you engaged all day? Maybe math related work makes time fly by. Identify what you love to do at work, and identify the things you hate while you’re at it. If you’ve been offered an administrative opportunity, and you hate administrative tasks, pass on the job and find another, more enjoyable way to add those skills to your resume.

Choose wisely and aim for the stars!

I have lived life in the jungles with long periods of time in isolation which has changed my life and perspective on many things but one greater than all is friendship. Some of my heroes and those I respect who have accomplished amazing things in this world, have relationships with those who believed in them, encouraged them, prayed for them, and even sacrificed to see their goal accomplished. So how do you meet “those” kind of people. The answer may not be what you think. Often in this world, we look for those who are more successful, richer than us, and more powerful because we think that will help us. But, let me share with you the kind of friendships you should have in your life to help you reach your goals, to bring happiness, to endure with you, to empower you, and encourage you when times get tough.
