    How a Mindset Shift from Fear to Love Transformed My Business

    “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” – Rabindranath Tagore I was recently telling a friend of mine a story about a potential coaching client I’d spent over six hours with before making him an official offer of a coaching programme. I explained how he’d told me he needed to think about it. It had been nearly a month since our last conversation, and I’d heard nothing. “Leah, you need to be careful. So many people out there in the service industry get taken advantage of. They do hours and hours of work for free and never get paid. You ought to be charging up front.” Just…

    4 Signs You're Too Smart For Your Job

    If you're always bored at the office, your coworkers don't inspire you, or you don't feel challenged by your work, you may be too smart for your job. It might not seem like a bad thing — maybe the work's easy, or you don't have to overexert yourself — but being overqualified can leave you frustrated and angry after time, especially if your manager never utilizes your skill set or gives you challenging projects.  "We can delude ourselves that it's all the same to us whether we compile the latest version of the boss's favorite make-work project or dig into the coolest assignment we've ever had," writes Liz Ryan, CEO and founder of Human Workplace, in a recent LinkedIn Post. "Of course,…

    Meet The Award-Winning Ad Man Who Quit His Job To Become A Bus Driver

    David de Haas had his life in the advertising industry all planned out. First, he would spend five years at a smaller agency where he could express his creativity, do great work, and win awards. Then, he would spend five years at a larger agency with big clients — a job that wouldn't allow him to do much great work, but would pay him lots of money.  What he hadn't planned on was a stint as a bus driver for Vancouver's public transit department. And yet, there he was late one night in the early part of 2012, driving one of British Columbia's most notorious routes when a passenger alerted him that a woman in the back of his trolley bus was in the…

    15 Research-Backed Ways To Make People Like You

    Most of our friendships happen so naturally we don't realize how they started. Sometimes, though, we want to make an effort to befriend a new acquaintance or become a better friend to those around us.  We scoured the psychological research to find science-backed strategies to get people to like you.Copy them. This strategy is called mirroring, where you subtly mimic the other person's behavior. When talking to someone, try copying their body language, gestures, facial expressions, vocal tones, or even choice of words. If your friend smiles, smile with them. If they love talking with their hands, talk with your hands as well. This will make the person you are talking to feel more comfortable and relaxed with you. Be careful not to take this too far,…

    Spending Your Vacation Time Wisely – Friday Distraction

    Did you see the story about the little girl who asked Google to give her Dad a vacation day? It’s a very cute story and you can check it out here. Today’s Time Well Spent from our friends at Kronos reminds us that vacation isn’t just a time for us to relax and recharge. It’s also important for our families as well. Sometimes vacations aren’t about where you go. They’re about the time away from the workplace and spending that precious vacation time wisely. Some of the best vacations I’ve ever had were simply doing nothing but enjoying time with family. How are you spending your summer vacation?

    How To Tell An Employee They're Failing Without Making Them Cry

    You're going over the ways that your employee's performance is lagging when you notice tears in his eyes. Maybe it was the tone of your voice, or an insult, or how you asked about life at home. Whatever the case, you turned a chance at a constructive conversation into an awkward moment. Even if your workers aren't prone to waterworks, a negative performance review done poorly can be a demoralizing experience rather than the motivating one it should be. If your employees are failing and you need to get them into shape, keep the following in mind: Don't compare them to another employee. Some managers make it a habit to compare two individuals who have a similar function, HR and strategy consultant Jappreet Sethi…

    Why Microsoft And Google Are Backing This 22-Year-Old Student People Are Calling The 'Italian Zuckerberg'

    When the popular, reputable Italian financial magazine Panorama Economy placed then-20-year-old college student Matteo Achilli on its cover in March 2012 with the headline "Italian Zuckerberg," he became a media sensation. Soon every major Italian news outlet wanted to cover the kid who'd started a professional networking website called Egomnia. Their interest, along with that of national politicians and business executives, expressed the hope that this young entrepreneur could become Italy's version of an American hotshot tech CEO, one who could rub shoulders with the real Mark Zuckerberg. Outlets outside of Italy have caught on to the hype as well, including the BBC, which just included Achilli in its new documentary "The Next Billionaires." Achilli, whose site won't be available to an international…

    Here's How To Avoid The 7 Worst Hiring Mistakes

    We all make mistakes from time to time — and some missteps have bigger consequences than others. Hiring mistakes, for instance, can be extremely costly. "Hiring managers make fatal errors all the time, usually when they feel pressure to hire quickly — and, as we know, rushed decisions lead to bad hires," says Mike Del Ponte, cofounder and "chief hydration officer" of Soma, an eco-friendly water filtration system. Luckily, though, there are easy ways to avoid the seven most common hiring mistakes, Del Ponte says. Here's his advice: Mistake 1: Over-valuing cultural fit. "Remember that the goal is to hire the most competent employee, not the most likeable," he says. "Cultural fit is important, but it can blind hiring managers from objectively assessing candidates." Create a…

    This Is An Ideal Resume For A Mid-Level Employee

    Having a ton of experience under your belt doesn't necessarily mean you have an "impressive" resume.  "You can have all the experience in the world — but if your resume doesn't stand out, if you don't present that information in a well-organized manner, or if it doesn't tell your story, nobody will take the time to look at your resume closely enough to see all that experience," says Amanda Augustine, a career expert at TheLadders, an online job-matching service for professionals. To get a clearer picture of what makes a resume stand out, we asked Augustine to create a sample of an excellent one for a mid-level professional. While your resume may look different depending on the industry you're in, the one below should…

    This Former Trader Quit J.P. Morgan To Try To Fix The Way Wall Street Hires Talent

    The Wall Street hiring process, traditionally geared toward connections, elitism, and inherent biases, is far from perfect. For Alexey Loganchuk, a former trader at J.P. Morgan, the biggest problem was the way the financial industry looked at merit. He felt it didn't. So after working at J.P. Morgan for five years, Loganchuk founded Upgrade Capital to provide opportunities to students who have no way of proving their financial capabilities when applying for jobs. Upgrade Capital finds talented young investors, and showcases their ideas and investing skills to financial firms, regardless of university, GPA, or resume. The idea for Upgrade Capital started when Loganchuk realized that the financial industry was fundamentally flawed in the way they hired and promoted employees.  "The single best trader I met…

    How To Find The Best Places To Live When You Work Remotely

    Many jobs can be done from anywhere. All a worker needs is a computer and reliable WiFi, perhaps from a nearby coffee shop. But the world is big! How does one choose where to live while carrying out their geographically-agnostic work? Enter NomadList.io, a crowdsourced collection of cities around the world that lets you sort destinations based on criteria like weather, internet speed, and estimated cost of living. Chiang Mai, Thailand, currently boasts the lowest cost of living, with an estimated total expense of $601 per month. Is your priority internet speed? You'd better move to Hong Kong with its whopping 70 Mbps broadband. Want to add your city to NomadList? There's a button for that at the bottom of the page that takes…

    4 Ways to Make Money While Writing

    I’ve spent a lot of my adult life fretting about jobs, having job openings called to my attention, feeling a reflexive jolt of recognition at the sight of any “Help Wanted” sign. I’ve often felt I was re-inventing the wheel and constantly redefining what I wanted to be when I grew up. That’s a sad state of affairs for someone with a guiding passion — writing — that is as well-defined, and that I’ve followed as faithfully, as the life’s work of anyone I know. I’ve always said writers have to have two jobs. A doctor or engineer or school teacher find that their self-realization and bread-winning vocation are one in the same. Writers have to toil at our craft for the love…

The Official Ground Rules for Moving Back Home with Mom and Dad

0

Did you just move back in with your parents? It’s time to start the clock.

A survey from Coldwell Banker Real Estate found that parents think 20-somethings can live at home up to five years. After that, it’s back to the real world and the vast unknown — or, you know, the pull-out couch in a buddy’s apartment.

A combination of student debt, the tough job market and a desire to save money have Millennials returning home at a record pace. A study from Pew Research reveals the number of people between the ages of 18 and 31 living with mom and dad rose 36 percent  in 2012.

As we cohabitate, let it be known far and wide — these are the official ground rules for moving back with our parents:

1. We are a family and also roommates. The arrangement may be tricky at times, but we’re all grownups and will make it work.

2. I, your child, will never, ever complain about a (free) home-cooked meal — no matter how it tastes.

3. I don’t need to tell you where I’m going on a Saturday night, and you certainly shouldn’t stay up until I get back. I will, however, keep my phone on if you need me.

4. We can exist in the same space without constantly making small talk. And it’s OK to come and go without necessarily saying “Hi” and “Bye.”

5. You must always knock before coming into my room. Even if the lights are off and there’s no sound. Even if you’re 100 percent positive I’m not home.

6. While I only need five hours of sleep and a Red Bull to function, I realize you need a solid eight to nine hours, so I’ll keep it down at night.

7. I promise to save money because I know my time in our house is temporary.

8. If the grass is getting long, I’ll mow it. If the floors are dirty, I’ll sweep them. If the sink is full, I’ll load the dishwasher. Thanks for letting me live rent-free.

9. The words “curfew” and “you are grounded” no longer exist. I don’t enjoy hearing the phrase “pick your clothes up off the floor,” but I can’t stop you from saying it.

10. You can go out of town for the weekend and trust that, while I will throw a party, my friends have matured and won’t break expensive things like they did in high school.

11. If you need me to chip in for bills or groceries, just say the word.

12. Whether it’s for one week, six months or five whole years, I will never forget to thank you for letting me come back home when I need it most.
