Another one down and done!

Not really, but it is time to get ready for the new year. Generally many people you want to meet with aren't around now yet there are still some. Even if you don't meet with them you can begin lining up next year. You may even be able to help others out that are in the same boat as you. Remember that this networking "thing" isn't all about you but connecting with others and seeing how you may help or assist them.

Go ahead and relax a little more and take in the atmosphere and conviviality of everyone. Don't forget your neck scarf when you do go out. Have you seen any of the "white" stuff? Are you approaching the world with a positive attitude? As hard as it may seem be sure and count your blessings and remember how good you actually have it as compared to many others.
There won't even be a new post until after Christmas.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas.

It is almost that time already. The Jolly man in the red suit just may be heading to your house. Some have a lot of excitement abounding and others await the New Year.
NO matter your mood it is advisable to continue connecting, lining up next year's schedule and getting out of the house.
Remember that every contact you make is just that much closer to your success.It is a great time to keep a few candy canes in your pocket to give out. It is the spirit folks.
It's not too early to think about what you'll be doing next year. At the same time enjoy your time with your family and/or friends. Christmas Holiday season only comes around once a year.

Ice and Snow

Some of us in the Pacific Northwest can remember back to 2009 at this time of year. We had more ice and snow than most of us had ever experienced in this area. We became home bound.It went on for two weeks. What a perfect time to sit at home and do research on the Internet. Write letters and gain new friends on LinkedIn, FaceBook and Twitter.

Resourcefulness is a splendid avocation for us to have. Talk about thinking outside the box. Get together with your fellow associates and share what you have learned and how you are successful. These changes and transitional transformations will get you to your next opportunity.

Have you been shopping yet? You realize Christmas is just around the corner? How could you forget. Remember that it is the thought that counts.

As you ponder over the thought of presents and no money. How depressing it can be to be without full time employment at this time of year. There are many far worse off than you. Now is the time to put on that other face and see how many folks you can meet in the mall. Both the retail clerks and fellow shoppers. There are always opportunities that are just awaiting your keen eye and ears.

As my mantra goes, "Have fun, Meet people, Learn something" you can make it work for you. Keep that positive attitude and you'll be surprised how many folks you'll meet.

Winter Preparation 2010

Thanks Giving has passed, winter is upon us and the Christmas holidays are soon to be here. Both a time for rejoice, happiness and concern. The concern because it is harder to gain interviews, of any kind, and for us to get motivated to ask.
This is a good time to also be laying out your plans for next year. It will be here before you know it. Always be working to the future along with living for the day, Carpe Diem.
As you make your visits and calls include the season where appropriate and be joyful for what you have and not always about what you don't have.
