Be a Better Young Professional

1.  Remove the “sent via blackberry” signature on your phone. It is so unprofessional. Go to the email settings on your phone and delete this text replacing it with your full name or a more appropriate signature. 2.  Make it a habit to start including the name of the person you are directing your greeting to. For example: ” Good Morning Nicole” sounds way better than just saying a general “Good Morning”. The moment you include someones name you add a personal touch that makes it feel more real. Try it. 3.  Okay so you are not having a great day, it happens to the best of us, but its the best of us who know better than to bring that shit to the work place. Put on a killer outfit, top it off with a smile and leave the attitude at home. ♥

“Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.”

Be (B)eautiful: We as women need to learn to support one another if we want to succeed. Hating on accomplishments and successes only keeps us all down as a group. If we can learn to empower each other we can take on the world. Be (A)uthentic: There are about 9.1 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., a number that comprises nearly 40% of all businesses. So don’t doubt your ability to succeed if you have a great idea. Make it happen! Be (D)etermined: It’s the point when you feel like you can’t go on anymore and you want to give up that you have to keep pushing because success is at the other side. This is a way of testing you to make sure you really deserve it. So don’t quit!
