Many people are angry and upset about all the violence going on in the world. You may not be able to change the world, but you are able to make a difference. No act of kindness is too small. It is very easy to bring a smile on others faces and the more good you do, the better you will feel.
Spreading love and kindness will help restore faith in humanity and help the anger, hate and sadness spreading in the world to fade out.
Here are a few ways you can make the world a better place:
1.Google the non-profit organizations in your community and donate items that are on their ‘most needed items’ list.
2. Get a few pizzas and feed the homeless people. While your at it take your extra blankets, shoes and jackets too. Or check the Amazon wishlist I created for them.
3. Help a senior with his/her grocery shopping. Be nice and patient.
4. If you know someone looking for work, review their resume and ask around to see if anyone you know is aware of any related job openings.
5. Buy a goat, cow, chicken or plant a tree for a village at
6. Give a Gift that gives more, from $1 to $1,000,000 or purchase any item on the website and they will give back to various causes like world hunger, cancer , veterans, autism and etc. Money donations are tax deductible and you can print out a certificate and give it to a recipient as a gift.
7.  Volunteer your time or skills at a local event or charity.
8. Donate your extra clothes, kitchenware, decor, furniture and appliances at your local Salvation Army  or woman’s shelter.
9. Adopt or foster a pet from a shelter before euthanasia. You can find all the local shelter pets on Petfinder
10. Stop negative posts and comments on social media.

Double check your LinkedIn profile picture

One of the post important parts of your LinkedIn profile is your head shot. Please don’t be the person that uses the mirror selfie, I just spent a lot on the wedding photographer so I’ll use the ‘just married’ pic, I’ll just crop myself out of the group photo cause I look hot or any other unprofessional random picture. 

Take this seriously, It’s like a mini visual resume. So if you can find a professional to take it for you great! If not here are a few tips:

  1. Is your picture too dark or blown out? The lighting is really important. The best light is indirect- like from a window. Avoid bright daylight and try to take your picture an hour or two before sunset so you wont get harsh shadows. Use a solid background. Meaning don’t use the Instagram photo of you in the club you went last night…

2. Make sure your photo looks like you. If you wear glasses have them on, if you have sunglasses take them off! Also, don’t get an extreme makeover done for the photoshoot where you look like another person. Don’t over Photoshop, the modeling agency has people for that.. 

3. Dress appropriately. Avoid tank tops, shirts with logos and funky distracting accessories and hats. Avoid wearing shiny, short, tight and low cut clothing. A Clean ironed button down shirt will work well if a suit is too formal for your profession. It’s best not to wear patterns and super colorful clothes that distracts the viewer.

4. No long-shots. The view doesn’t matter, we don’t need to know you have been to Rome in your LinkedIn profile. Head shots should fill the frame. Crop from a bit of negative space above your head and a little bit from under your shoulders. Medium Close Up (MCU) and Close Up (CU )are the winners:

5. No #squadgoals here please! Make sure you are the only one in the picture, leave your coworkers, puppy and your kid(s) pictures for Facebook.

6. Use a high quality picture. Pixels are not cool anymore- never mind they never were.

7. Is your picture recent? I mean its cool that you were class president in the 1960’s and rocked and afro but sadly you are semi bald now…so you can only use your old yearbook photo for #TBT 

Anything else I forgot to mention? Probably. Please feel free to comment and add on to the list.

Good luck fellow LinkedInners!

What does Tesla’s logo remind you of?

If you look carefully, the T looks like Nikola Tesla’s face:

It also looks like a cat’s nose:

and a a cross sectional view of one pole of an electric motor:

It also looks like a sword with no handle:

and probably a bunch of other things…

I believe a great logo makes people wonder and possibly see more than the designer attended to portray. Yes, we may find random objects similar to it but it makes us think and imagine. Cool logo Tesla -well done. 

7 tips to eliminate distractions

  1. Turn off the background noise (TV, Radio, etc.).
  2. Clean up your desk.
  3. Switch off your cell phone.
  4. Take a deep breath and close your eyes before you start again when you feel like you are losing focus.
  5. Write a to do list and cross off what you have accomplished.
  6.  Have a scheduled break time planned beforehand.
  7. Use headphones so others will know not to disturb you- hopefully.
