Common Work-at-Home Positions You Can Apply For

Working at home sounds like a dream come true to most people.

But, what sorts of positions can you find that you can do at home? Inbound Call Center Agent An inbound call center agent takes calls using their home phone and computer system from the comfort of their home office (or kitchen table), taking orders for products and services. For example, you may work on a project for well-known home shopping networks or food chain establishments. You’ll be trained, and have practice calls before you get started.

ADVICE TO A 20 YEAR OLD

Recently on HER Mastermind Network (on LinkedIn) Kassandra Vaughn posed the following question: Knowing what you know now, if you could give one piece of advice to your 20 year old self, what would it be?

What a wonderful question! Here was my response:

I would tell myself that every day when we wake up we decide what kind of day we are going to have. When we wake up surrounded by challenged and we allow those challenges to affect our attitude, it sets the tone for how we will react to every incident we encounter throughout the day.

We can decide to wake up on the right side of the bed or on the wrong side.

Once I learned this valuable lesson (took me a long time) I realized just how powerful our minds are. My life has been a lot more rewarding and many more opportunities have come my way because I choose to have a great day… each and every day!

4 Things to Keep in Mind When Choosing What Goals to Pursue

If you’ve embraced the wonderful practice of setting goals for yourself, kudos to you—but a new challenge can often arise when we start picking too many goals. Here’s a way to sift through the stars and find which ones to reach for.

Think about the biggest picture possible. Sit down for a little reflection, journaling, and exploration of who you are as a person and what matters to you. Try making a list of your ten most important values. Once you’ve done that, think about what you want more than anything else in life, and write that down.

Keep it short, sweet, and to the point, in one sentence—no more. You’ll be amazed about how having clarity on the big picture will help you sort through your goals and find the ones that matter.

Think about your budget and compromise accordingly. When it comes to goal setting, it’s important to think about the constraints you face and be realistic. If you’re holding down a nine-to-five gig within the median salary range…

6 Traits of a Great Leader in the Workplace

When we think of leadership, we sometimes think of epic moments like George Washington crossing the Delaware, or Martin Luther King Jr. speaking on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. But what makes a leader great in a less epic venue, like work?

Communication

A good leader at work is a good communicator and clearly spells out expectations. Not only that, they foster good communication between their team. A great leader goes above and beyond leveraging chats, emails, and texting groups to bring their team together around workplace issues. They don’t just offer tools for networking—they help develop a sense of how to communicate effectively.

Empathy

A good leader in the workplace cares about their employees and shows it. Remembering the details of their lives and asking follow up questions (in a non-invasive way) about spouses, children, parents, and life events shows that they care about their employees and view them as more than just human chattel.…
