What are your Dreams?


Sometimes in your career you are asked to write down your dreams of what you want out of your life. It could be anything and be anything that you would want to happen in your life. It is a good question to ponder on when you get the chance to see what you would want out of your life. What would one of your dreams be to accomplish in this world. Well you know sitting here thinking about that question you find some answers that you probably would not have thought about before because honestly most people are working paycheck to paycheck with no balance in their life.

You know while she was sitting here writing about her dreams it dawned on her that most of her dreams have come true maybe a little later than she had hoped but they did come true. One of her dreams was to finish college and that happened in 2012 with a master’s degree. Another dream was to have her own home that she could call her own without having people tell her what she could or could not do. Some place where her and her family could settle down and make a life of their own. Well that happened in 2013 which was a blessing in itself.

With all the good things happening to her recently she did not know whether or not to believe that good things could happen because they have always struggled to make ends meet no matter what they situation. However, that was also about to change with all the other good things that have happened in the last year she was not looking for anything else. The job that she has wanted was just around the corner all she had to do was be persisent and go for what she wanted. Becoming a manager was the best thing that could have happened because now she does not have to struggle to make ends meet.

Now, a year later and she still loves her job to no end although there are struggles as with anything in the world of business. However, you have to overcome those struggles and pick the things that you want to go your way. You cannot win every fight but you can win some of the fights. It is a struggle to find that happy medium within the workplace. However, when you find that happy medium you should not do anything to desturb the changes that are going on.

Eventually, she wants to get to that point on where she wants to be within the next few years. She know that she wants to move up within the company and she knows that it will be a challenge to get where she wants to be within the company but she is determined to learn and eventually acheive the desired outcome that she seeks within this company. She knows that if she does the right things and shows how much she cares about the company things will work out in her favor. It is worth the wait so that she can learn all she needs to know before taking that next step into the upper business world.

A New Year and A New Beginning


As the New Year comes in there have been some changes in my life that is going to be better for my family. With that being said, I have come to realize that with more responsibility you do not have enough time in the day to write as much as you would like to. The long days of working a full-time job, and homeschooling the children makes harder to write and keep up on things that you want to do.

The future holds some great challenges that will takes every ounce of energy that  I have to make it the best year.  A new promotion at work.  This is something that I have waited for the past few years. I am proud of the accomplishments that I have done the past few years. However, this is the best one of all accomplishments because I am a unit manager.  I have made it to the corporate world. 

Through everything you go through in life something  always makes it better.  If you believe in everything that you do good things will happen and you will achieve your goals that you put in place.  Life is unpredictable and you have to go through  the obstacles that come your way but you will come out stronger and ready for anything else that comes your way. 

Life is about making sacrifices and working towards something better on your life.  Not only for yourself but for your family.  You cannot worry about other people because you have your own family to worry about, and making sure that they have everything they need is your first priority.

In the end everything will turn out for the better.  You will have a great year,  and make goals to achieve in the upcoming year. Of course, there will be new challenges,  and obstacles to overcome in the New Year but you will manage to break through those challenges, and obstacles to reach the outcome that you desire.

HERE’S TO HOPING THAT THE NEW YEAR IS EVERYTHING THAT YOU HOPE IT WILL BE.

Do You Have What it Takes To Be a Part of Our Team?


Although this article is good, I would have to say that these are questions that many companies ask potential employee’s that would want to work for their company. Of course, I am interested in the company or I would not have accepted the interview. So in answer to the three main questions:

Do you have the skills? Let us see here I went to college managed to graduate all three degree’s with a 3.0 or better. I have worked in numerous positions management wise. I have raised three children while attending college. (I know many people do this nowadays). However, after obtaining three degrees in Business Management and Business Administration that is not enough to obtain a job. Because I do not have experience in that field means that they will not give the job to me because they will pick the person who has experience in that field. How do you obtain the experience in that field? Well first, you have to meet someone that is willing to take a chance and give you the opportunity to obtain the experience for that field. That is hard to come by these days!

Are you enthusiastic? I go to work every day because that is what I have to do. Do I like my job? Yes! People that I work with love me because I work and I do my job. Do I motivate others? Yes! I love my job because of the customer’s that is why we are in business. The customer’s is what makes the company money. When they come into your company, establishment or business they are coming in to spend their money that they have worked hard for in return they want great customer service for the tangible or intangible items that you have with your business.

Will you fit into the team? Well you know because I have a great personality I believe that I fit into any type of team. I am what people would call a geek! I know this is on the internet however, I am who I am, and there is nothing that is going to change that. I love to learn new things. I am a leader not a follower I try to do any job with the intentions to get it done without regards to anyone else on the team. You have to work together to get something accomplished. This type of question can mean several different things if you stop and think about it. It could mean are you willing to spend an excessive amount of money and live above your means, take expensive vacations, buy the most expensive car or anything else. In my opinion, you have to be a leader and make sure that the people around you know that you are a leader.

You know for the last seven years I have been told that I have too much education, I do not have enough skills or knowledge, I am over qualified for every job that I apply for, and most of all the moment they find out I am homeschooling puts a big damper on finding the right job. I show up to work on time, I never call out, and when my schedule is changed well that is all part of it. Being in business means that you have to go beyond without regards to how it affects your life. You have to be willing to work countless hours to make sure that your employee’s are doing the job that they are required to do.

So the main question I have towards companies is what can your company do for me? Is there going to be continual learning in how your company works? I have given you a preview of what I can offer and there is more than what I have written here.

How to find a calling instead of a career


You know this is true! I work because I love what I do that is providing good customer service, and getting to know the customer’s. Everyone has a story to tell! For myself I work because I want to and I want more out of my future than most. Many people think that I am older than what I am because I act so mature. After going to college and learning many things about the business world I have come to realize that there is a special spot somewhere in the world for me. What I make of my life is my choice, and I cannot blame anyone for my life not going the way that I want it to. I appreciate you posting this because it is the truth. You are not working for a career, to just pay bills or anything else. You want to make an impression on the world. The only way to do that is to love what you do.

Customer Service Winners and Losers


Customer Service

Crash

In my opinion, I do not think of any company that has provided the best customer service. Now as for the worst customer service where should I start? Throughout the many warranty's that I have purchased on equipment, or other technology tools I have yet to meet the best customer service. The first computer I bought was through Dell, a well known computer place. Well right before the warranty expired the computer started acting up and so I called tech support, and spent a long time on the phone with someone I could not understand. The customer Service representative crashed my computer and hung up on me. So I called them back and asked to speak to a manager. They finally got the computer fixed and working the way that is should. I was furious and I have never bought their computer's since. I will never buy another one. Another time I had bought a printer from Wal-Mart and purchased the warranty which apparently was only good for ninety days after the purchase. After the warranty expires you have to deal with the company who made the product. Well that was a mistake calling. The printer that I had bought would not print from the first day. I spent an hour or two arguing with the customer service representative about what was wrong with the printer. Any time that you call these people you have to waste your time putting the equipment back on the computer, and plugging everything back in so that these representatives can get onto your computer. Who knows what type of information they are getting off of your computer when they suddenly crash your computer. I have yet to buy another warranty because it is a waste of time and money.

Wk 5 – Leadership


Awesome Post!!!! You must be a leader not a follower. Leadership is the main key to a successful business or career.

micatphx

The 10 leadership skills I think are the most important for the success of a company are communication, listening, management, motivation, problem solving, delegation, planning, group organizing, charisma, and influence. The number one skill that I think should be most developed is the communication portion. A great communicator is able to motivate and inspire, which leads to influencing and individual or group. These are key elements needed to be good a leader. In addition to communicating to people, you need to to equally be able to listen to people, and even more importantly understand what they are telling you. I feel my skill set includes most of these, including communication. I learned a lot of my communication skills through the sign industry while working with clients and organizing their direction of logo designs and marketing strategies. I also was able to communicate back to my customers their needs and designs…

Why We Love College (and You Should Too!)


I know that I have put a lot of time and effort into graduating college with a MBA and I know that one day I will get the job that I went to college for.

beers boys and books

At times you can feel stuck, like you’re paying all this money and putting in all this effort and time for a piece of paper. A piece of paper that means what you will be doing for the rest of your life. That can be a little intimidating. Okay, it can be down right scary. Because how do you know that you’re in the right major? How do you know that you’re even at the right school? When we were kids, we believed we could be anything we wanted. An astronaut, a princess, maybe even a singer (not me LOL). But then we graduated high school and landed in college and the reality of life set in and we soon realized we couldn’t be everything we always wanted. Sometimes we have to settle for a variation of that. But this is life, and you never know what’s coming next, and…
