How about a full Mental Detox??

With so many so-called diet gurus telling us what we should do to lose unwanted fat, things can get confusing. For while one self-proclaimed experts says that carbohydrates are the enemy, there are others who say that it isn't. The thing is, they all sound equally convincing. People often have to do their own intensive research to find out who's right or wrong.

Save yourself the unneccesary stress, visit the following link were you will find a video and information on how you can get your energy back fast.


Top tips for using your cameraphone


Smile! You’re about to learn five fantastic ways to get the most from your cameraphone. Yes, we’re talking about that crummy, low-resolution point-and-shoot that’s built into your mobile. It’s a lot more useful than you think, provided you point it at the right things:

  • Where you parked  Now where’d you leave the car? G7? F4? If only you’d taken a photo of the nearest signpost, and maybe a few landmarks to boot. Take it from us: Losing your car in a crowded airport lot — especially when it’s 10 degrees out — is not fun.
  • Your passport and/or driver’s license  If one of these documents goes missing while you’re traveling, you’re potentially screwed. Before you embark, take a snapshot of your license and/or passport, making sure the numbers are legible. If nothing else, you’ll have an easier time proving your identity and getting your documents replaced.
  • Your hotel room number  Sounds nuts, I know, but remember: Hotels no longer put room numbers on room keys. If you’re the forgetful type, this beats stopping at the front desk to ask for your own room number.
  • The label on the wine bottle  A client raves about the bottle of wine you shared over dinner. Snap a photo of the label (when he/she’s not looking, of course) so you can match it later, then send along a bottle (or even a case, if it’s a big client) to help seal the deal.
  • EvernoteQipitScanR  Snap a photo of business card, cocktail napkin, whiteboard, or whatever, then send it to one of these free information-management services. From there you can organize, share, publish, or even fax your “digital copy.”

Ways to help a friend survive job search

As this is he first post on my blog i thought this very appropiate, given i am currently in a similar situation,,,,,,,,,,,heads up to great friends 

Amy Baker, a partner marketing specialist in the technology industry in San Francisco, was pushed into an unexpected job search last year and was the recipient of many thoughtful supportive gestures, which she has itemized below.

When I hear a friend has been laid off, I do at least some of the following:

1. I invite them to lunch.

2. I present them with a “job search survival kit.” This includes a notebook for writing their ideas/interview notes in and a Starbucks card for the networking they will do or simply for a treat.

3. The first piece of advice in the notebook is “Always accept a free lunch. You will do the same when you are in their shoes.” Most people don’t know how to be on the receiving end of generosity and forget it makes both sides feel good.

4. I tell them the first thing they should do is sign up for unemployment, and I explain how it works and what to do (many are not familiar with the system, but it was a godsend during my search) .

5. I make sure they are on LinkedIn, offer help with their résumé and offer to be a recommendation.

Find out what the other 5 were by following the link:
