"ALL individual achievements are a result of 

Motive or combination of Motives. ~Napoleon Hill~

 

 

As explained by Napoleon Hill, we do not have the right to

ask anyone to do anything with adequate motive.  You have

to provide them with a reason or benefit they will receive when

doing what you want them to do.  This applies to anything but

especially to sales.  Give the person a motive to purchase your 

product or join your company.

 

I hope you take the time at some point to listen to or read

some of the work from Dr. Hill.  If you haven't read the book

"Think and Grow Rich" then that's a great place to start. His

teachings have resulted in millionaires for decades.

Social Media is heavily relied upon as a way we conduct

our online marketing.  I’m sure you have your favorite

social media site and you may not even use LinkedIn.

 

 

However, I ran across 21 Tips To Improve Your

LinkedIn profile and I thought I would share them.  These tips

are from  Melonie Dodaro, who is sometimes described as

“Canada’s #1 LinkedIn Expert” and knows her stuff about LinkedIn.

 

Here are her 21 steps to making your LinkedIn profile awesome.

 

  1. Your name should only contain your name
  2. Your headline should be catchy and have keywords and phrases that you would want to turn up in Google search results
  3. Photo should be taken by a professional
  4. Social proof is important online, so make sure you have at least 500 connections. This leads to credibility and authority on the web.
  5. Add all relevant contact information
  6. Customize your website names to attract your target market
  7. Customize your profile URL
  8. Update your status daily that adds value to your network. This could mean your latest blog post, presentation or some content you found that is worth sharing.
  9. Use keywords and phrases that you and your business would like to be found for online
  10.  Write in the first person
  11. Speak directly to to your target market so they can self-identify
  12. Add a video or slideshow. Many people prefer to watch rather than read
  13. Tell people to click to play video as it is not that obvious
  14. Keyword load your skills and expertise section
  15. Use the “Projects” section to highlight free reports, downloads or to showcase the products and services you are promoting
  16. Again, keyword load your current and past work history
  17. Use keywords and phrases when filling out your “Experience” section
  18. Make sure you have at least 10 recommendations
  19. Add any volunteer experience you may have including causes you support
  20. Add any significant media awards, recognition and achievements to enhance credibility in the “Honors & Awards” section
  21. Join 50 groups

Truthfully, I have mixed thoughts about this article and

would love to hear your view.  Please

leave comments below.

 

 Local teacher is making waves after posting her resignation letter online.

Pauline Hawkins is leaving Liberty High School in Colorado Springs after more than a decade. She tells 11 News she believes the education system in Colorado is on a downward spiral and she's ready to get out, citing low pay and standardized testing as two major reasons for her departure.

But it's her resignation letter that has grabbed the attention of people across the country.

An excerpt:

I have sweet, incredible, intelligent children sitting in my classroom who are giving up on their lives already. They feel that they only have failure in their futures because they’ve been told they aren’t good enough by a standardized test; they’ve been told that they can’t be successful because they aren’t jumping through the right hoops on their educational paths. I have spent so much time trying to reverse those thoughts, trying to help them see that education is not punitive; education is the only way they can improve their lives. But the truth is, the current educational system is punishing them for their inadequacies, rather than helping them discover their unique talents; our educational system is failing our children because it is not meeting their needs.

I can no longer be a part of a system that continues to do the exact opposite of what I am supposed to do as a teacher–I am supposed to help them think for themselves, help them find solutions to problems, help them become productive members of society. Instead, the emphasis on Common Core Standards and high-stakes testing is creating a teach-to-the-test mentality for our teachers and stress and anxiety for our students. Students have increasingly become hesitant to think for themselves because they have been programmed to believe that there is one right answer that they may or may not have been given yet. That is what school has become: A place where teachers must give students “right” answers, so students can prove (on tests riddled with problems, by the way) that teachers have taught students what the standards have deemed are a proper education.

Read entire article here.

 

 My thoughts...as a former teacher...

Standardized testing stinks!  

That's why so many do not lead fulfilling, successful lives because

they have been told all their lives (by naysayers) that they have to 

take what is handed to them.  Everyone (students and adults)

learn in different ways. Just because they do not do well on tests

does not mean they cannot have a successful, freedom filled future.

 

I'm sure you have heard that "Education is the Key to Success"

and I'm a firm believer in that too.  However, in recent years I have 

come to the conclusion that it does not have to be formal education.

Self education is just as important.  Often, after high school or

college,people think their education should stop when actually it

should be just beginning. Successful people are good students and

will coninue to learn by reading, listening to audios by successful

people, and focusing on their future.  

Standardized testing should not determine one's

future.

 

What do you think?  Would love to see your comments below.

 

Her second reason for resigning was low pay for teachers.

I'm not going to comment here on my views about that....I would 

probably be banned from the Internet if I did. haha.  But, feel free

to leave your comments on teacher's salary...
