Children in preschool or kindergarten are old enough to begin learning first aid with their parents. Perhaps the most basic information your child can learn is the number for emergency services – 911. We have all heard news stories of children communicating with emergency dispatch, telling the dispatcher that their parents are sick or hurt.

Child’s Maturity Level

Consider your child’s maturity level as well as his age. A younger child may be more able to stay calm in an emergency when an older child is frightened and unable to think about what should be done.

Children as young as three can learn to press the numbers for 911 in a bona-fide emergency. Role-play telling the dispatcher what is happening, with you taking the dispatcher’s role. Depending on how they respond in an actual emergency, they may be ready to participate in a first aid for parents classes.

Buy a small, basic first aid kit and show your child what is in the kit. Show him how to put bandages on small cuts. A first aid kit for children should hold the basics.

Teach Child About Danger

If you take a medication that is dangerous to children, you need to explain to your child that the medication is for your illness – that, if he takes it, the medication could make him very sick.

If you suffer from diabetes, you will have to teach your older children to determine when you are having a diabetes-related episode. If your blood sugar has fallen, show them how to help you eat a candy bar or drink a soda. If your blood sugar is too high, your oldest child should know how to draw up the correct dosage of insulin and inject it. Teach your children how to break the needle off the syringe before throwing them away.

Who Teaches the Child

You can teach your child basic first aid or, if you want him to learn beyond the basics, you can find a first aid class in your community. Both of you should attend the class so you learn the same material at the same time. A class in first aid for parents should have simpler material for children.

If a Family Member Has a Chronic Condition

Chronic conditions qualify as diabetes, heart conditions, seizure conditions and asthma. You may worry that telling your children too much will scare them. Their reactions all depend on what you tell them and how you tell them. Giving a simple, emotionless and matter-of-fact explanation of your condition or that of your spouse should serve to inform rather than frighten them.

It can be much more frightening to walk in on you or your spouse in the middle of an acute episode of illness. When they don’t know what is happening or how to handle the situation, they feel lost and helpless.

Very young children can be told, for instance, that you have trouble breathing sometimes. Explain that you use a special tool that allows you to breathe medicine into your lungs. Show them your inhaler and where you keep it. Tell them that, if you have trouble breathing, you want them to know where to find your inhaler.

Demonstrate to them how to give you the medicine. Put the inhaler in your mouth and pantomime pressing the actuator down. Remove it from your mouth and press it, so they see the mist come out of the mouthpiece.

If you or another family member suffers from any other chronic condition, do the same, tailoring your explanations and demonstrations to their ages and ability to understand. Make your explanations a part of teaching first aid basics. Read this story from a paramedic mom, for a perspective from a mother within the health profession, it might just give you some insight.

Mommy-Blogger-Product-Reviews-and-Funny-Outtakes

One of my favorite product review blog posts (videos) ever.

Oh, and with hilarious outtakes. Luv u all.Don’t forget to be signed up on my email to get word of the Rich Mom University Tour PLUS free training that comes with it! X0X0 Renae.

Watch the video to know more about mommy blogger product reviews.

How is your Friday going? Doing anything fun for the weekend? Post below. Today I have some product reviews of products that I used to death and loved. Z! Go get the disclaimer! Disclaimer, I don’t get paid for my reviews and I only review the products that I love.

First,  I was sent a wooden owl journal notebook. From Cole Smith. It is swoon worthy. Drooling, this is me drooling … but without spit. My only problem is that I don’t know what shop this is from. Nothing came in the package with it. I tried searching my email for a message from Cole Smith. I got nothin’. So if you know who sells this product please let me know. Because I love it that much that I Have to show it without knowing who’s it is.

Next, Natural Seren from Etsy has the most delicious lip scrubs on the planet. She has oodles of other awesome-sauce products too like novelty soaps, lip balms, scrubs, gift baskets, body bars, body soaks and more! Now, it’s important to know that Tina, who started Natural Seren has sensitive skin herself. Before starting her company she did research on different oils and butters and finally found a perfect formula that works for her own skin Thus, if you have sensitive skin,  then her products will be perfect for you too.

Her products range from around $4 to about $30 for an entire gift set. Go to NaturalSeren.etsy.com to view everything she’s got and to place your order. And while you’re there order me the cotton candy whipped sugar scrub. No seriously, order me some. It’s my birthday.  It’s not my birthday.

Next, Wisteriabathandbody.com sent me a bunch of products too.  They offer a large variety of

Vegan, paraben free, handcrafted products. Their products were developed by a licensed Skin Car Therapist as an ode to fun and healthy skin care. I didn’t really care about all that when trying the products. I wanted to know 2 things.

1. Does it smell good?

2. Does it feel good?

And the answer is yes to both. I especially loved their white tea organic body wash. It smelled so good and lathered really well. And I could actually smell it on my skin after I showered which is something that I can’t say for a lot of other body washes. They also sent me an uber cool gummy worm soap.  And I thought Wow. This would be the coolest gift. And low and behold they have it for sale on their site imagine that. They also have other products like body spray which I tried and liked.

And one of my 5 year olds favorite products of theirs is their hand sanitizer. They sent us the Melon flavored hand sanitizer. It smelled better than any hand sanitizer I have ever smelled in my life. Hands down. My 5-year-old smelled it? She became absolutely obsessed with it.  She started refusing to use soap to wash her hands. The hand sanitizer was gone in just a couple weeks because of my daughter’s obsession. I was kinda mad because it was my favorite too and I didn’t get any. Hey, Wisteria send me some more!

Their products range from $2 to $15 and can be found at wisteriabathandbody.com. I think next I’m going to try some of their body souffles. It’s so delicious I want to die!

Next, The visionaries of Cate & Chloe started the company called Cate & Chloe with one very simple concept in mind. They wanted to create stylish yet affordable jewelry that women could wear every day. Now, I have an important disclaimer. I’m very picky when it comes to those subscription boxes that you get monthly.

You know the ones, you pay a monthly subscription and they send you something that’s supposedly worth a lot. but a lot of times you question if the products are really sent from a dollar store? Well Cate and Chloe sent me a sample of their monthly VIP program. They send jewelry that’s valued at $200 and you pay $39.99 a month. I was veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerry skeptical, very skeptical.

They sent me a pair of what looked like diamond stud earrings. I was floored.Gorgeous. The sparkle in these babies ALWAYS gets noticed. This is not just a cheap costume piece of jewelry. I absolutely love it.

So I looked more indepth at their site and they have such classic beauties on there. It’s just my style. Not over the top. But amazing quality for the classics. You can shop for Cate And Chloe at the website CateAndChloe.com or at amazon .com . All of their products range from $30 on up….

Next, ProductsbyAh.com . Or, as their business is called Ah! Products Inc. It’s really called that. I swear I don’t over emphasis anything. Anyway, they are an innovator in the market of greener, safer, cleaner, hypoallergenic products. Their catalog was formulated to make your and my job easier, safer and more efficient.

So I tried a lot of their products to test their theory. I don’t have any footage of me using their products cleaning. I ran out of time because I had to run away to CT with Tom Cote. But, I did absolutely test their products and they work fabulously. There aren’t any over powering chemical smells. And my 9-year-old May has skin allergies and she didn’t seem to have any problems with the products either. It definitely did the job it was supposed to.

I especially loved that you have only one bottle for many surfaces and to clean many things. I hate lots of bottles. I really really do! They also have a concentrate so you can save space and stop throwing away so many bottles. Just pour the concentrate in our first cleaning bottle

and mix it with water. Voila, more cleaner less stuff.

And it just makes you go Ahhhhh! I think it’s supposed to be Ahhhh. What do you think? If you could create a product with an exclamation point in the first word, what would it be? Post your thoughts below.

That’s it for this week. The Rich Mom major University Tour is coming in just a few weeks. Make sure you’re on my email list at richmombusiness.com/email  to get the first notification about the date and time.

Love you all

Peace out yo!

Menswear trend for women is here again. This trend is something that even celebrities cannot help but try for casual days and red carpet events. What’s good about menswear is that it is always in style every year thus, you can stash your menswear clothes in the back of your closet and take them out again the following year. If you want to try this latest fashion craze this summer, take note of the dos and don’ts for the menswear trend for women.

Do: Pick Well-Tailored Pieces

Capture

When you choose menswear for your wardrobe, make sure to pick only well-tailored pieces. The clothes should be right for your frame, not so loose that it will engulf you like you’re wearing a blanket and not so tight that you look like you would burst an artery any minute.

You can wear menswear to work as long as they are well-tailored pieces. Ill-fitting clothes would be disastrous for your look. Menswear trend is perfect for the professional setting of the work place and you have many options including suit jackets, ties, vests, trousers and collared shirts. To save on shopping expenses, make use of Coupons of Menswear Trend for women to get discounts on well-tailored menswear.

Don’t: Think in Black and White

1

Experiment with colorful pieces when choosing menswear, don’t stick to black and white. Bear in mind that to make this trend work for you, you give it a touch of femininity. You can look for printed pieces too or stripes, checks and florals. Do not go out your door wearing menswear from head to foot because you will look manly enough that people will think you’re really a man.

 

Do: Mix Styles

2

Keep a feminine silhouette by mixing menswear with pieces that are fitted to your womanly shape. Use menswear as a wardrobe inspiration so don’t be afraid to mix styles like wearing a skirt with a tweed vest or a boyfriend jeans with a fitted tank. Just ensure that you are confident and comfortable with your look to make the trend work for you.

There is lots of menswear that you can experiment with like loafer-style pumps, Oxford-style boots, pinstriped pantsuits, collared shirts, tweed vests, boyfriend jeans, fedora and camel blazers.

Every time you make a wardrobe upgrade, do not spend too much. Look for items on sale because you can find great pieces if you just patiently look for it at the store. If you prefer to shop online, avail discounts and additional perks by using Express promo code 2014 or Coupons of Clothings summer.

Looking great and in fashion does not mean that you have to splurge to get well-tailored pieces. Be a smart shopper by getting the most of every cent that you spend.

Product-Reviews-All-New-by-Renae

Christmas in July Sale ALL New – Sweet Peas in a Pod Pink Beads – Perfect Gift for Mom, Grandma, Sister,Twins or Bff sold on etsy by Kikiburrabeads for

It’s been a loooooong while since I did product reviews and after about 40 products sat on my shelf for months, these are the few that was my favorite to show you.

Disclaimer: I don’t get paid for my reviews and I only review the products that I love. xoxo Renae 

Watch the video to know more about these product reviews.

Hi Besties, I haven’t done a product review in like. So my products have been piling up. I have about 40 items right now sitting ready for review. So I’ll be doing product reviews every Friday for a little while to catch up.

Disclaimer: I don’t get paid for my reviews and I only review the products I love.

Z! Go get the besties some cheese-its. I love cheese-its

FIRST! PAPER SHOWER. Yup. It is what it says. You get these two little packets in a pack. One is a disposable wet towel. It’s bigger than like a kids wet wipe. Much bigger. And you simply wipe yourself down with it. It just goes everywhere. Then you use the second packet, which is like a large dry towelette. But again, it’s enormous and much bigger than baby wipes or similar products. It’s soft and durable and I personally loved being able to keep it in my purse. I think it might be more for adults but every once in a while your kids will have one of those big spills.

You know what I mean. Those BIG spills. And it usually happens when you’re in a public place like the 4th of July and your kid spills fruit punch all over themselves and your sitting there in the stands watching some show outside and you’re like what do I do? And everyone is mad at you and no one will move and then people complain that your kids sticky fingers are touching them. just theoretically speaking.

But when this happens I learned that this is the perfect product to keep in your purse for emergencies. Paper Shower can clean up your kids sticky bodies from head to toe. Can be purchased at amazon.com for around $10­$14 for a 12 pak of wet and dry towels. More info can be found at papershower.com

Monique from Mystik Beauty Corner sent me jewerly for my birthday! Back in March. I told you I have a lot sitting on my shelf to review. Don’t make fun of me! MYSTIK BEAUTY CORNER creates Custom pieces of jewelry. And she adds New items every month if not sooner.

Monique is always putting out something new. She sent me some wired jewelry which I told her is my favorite. I love how she twists the wires around the jewelry and makes some really awesome-sauce pieces from that. To me the wire is actually cooler than the jewelry in the middle of the wired set-up. She also sent me some pretty beaded earrings in blue. I love them! Shout out to Monique. I love you!

Next, I was kind of shocked that my kids became obsessed with a jewelry trend called Zymbol. ZYMBOL.NET Zymbol was ‘accidentally’ created when company founder Sally Short doodled the phrase ‘LOVE IS ALL U NEED’, stacking each letter on top of the next. She then added a peace sign to complete the design. The Short family later saw the design on it’s side, and a ‘K’ stood out. This led to their discovery of the entire ALPHABET and every NUMBER… hidden in plain sight. And that’s why my 9-year-old is constantly wearing and looking at it. This is totally the best present for any pre-teen or young teen.

They sent me both a silver necklace and a purple and pink necklace to review. My 5 year-old loved the pink but my 9-year-old gasped and was totally romanced by the silver. The silver is really shiny and looks really expensive. But the jewelry starts at only $16 and you can find it at zymbol.net

Next, UR Best Friend’s Fashion sells handcrafted dog booties, dog collars, dog coats, and other fun accessories. They also take custom orders. UR Best Friend’s Fashion was started by Marina Woodson because her own two dogs lived in Montana and experienced hot summers and cold winters. So she started designing products for them. Aaaand the rest is history.

She sent me a ton of different products and I tried them all on my own little dog Skittles. Skittles is a 3 lb. chihuahua and she is already kind of set in her ways. So she didn’t really like the booties. But, I have to give props to UR Best Friend’s Fashion because of the coat.

Now let me explain. Skittles gets cold very easily. Skittles doesn’t like them much either. But some of them she’ll tolerate when she’s cold enough. This coat that UR Best Friend’s Fashion sent me is not itchy on Skittles, not even by 1%. In fact, Skittles prefers wearing this coat at all times.

Many of you know I just ran away with Tom Cote. Link to his YouTube channel down below. And in CT, I know the summers are supposed to be hot because of humidity but compared to Vegas. I’m pretty much wearing jackets all day. Well, we forgot SKittles’s coat from UR Best Friend’s Fashion. I called my ex, Hi ex? And I asked him to send me the coat in the mail. Pleeeeeease? That’s how much I love this coat.

You can find these products at UrBestFriendsFashion.com or at her etsy shop­. Prices range from a few dollars up to the $60 price range…

Next. Remember that product review I did of Jessica Hipp Designs? Well she sent me some bonus products and I just have to show them to you. My kids are obsessed with Jessica’s felt toys and I thiiiink I’m more obsessed than they are. These are what toys used to be like. And they last. Jessica sent me some bandaids and a little pouch for all the bandaids to go inside. Shout out to Jessica. I love you!

All of Jessica’s items are hand patterned, hand cut and put together by none other than herself. And the cool thing is that Jessica will accept custom orders! Products can be purchased from Jessica’s etsy shop for as little as a couple bucks…. I’m still waiting for her to raise her prices. Those are all the product reviews for this week.

Make sure you join me in my new traffic source webinar and email tutorial series by going to http://richmombusiness.com/traffic. Where I spill the beans on how I personally get traffic to my businesses and how you can do the same.

Luv you all

Peace out yo!

5-Things-to-Know-Before-You-Start-Your-Automobile-Business

Automobile Themed Sugar Cookie Collection sold on etsy by NotBettyCookies for $48.00

5 things to know before you start your automobile business.

Learn how to successfully start your auto business. XOXO LucyAlia.

Watch the video to know more about automobile business.

An automobile shop is one of the rewarding businesses that you can start today. The industry is diversified with lots of options at your disposal. There are many cars out there that require repairs and replacements both minor and major. Establishing a car repair shop is a good business venture; however, there are crucial things you must know without which your business may not be as successful as you want.

These are the five most important things to know before venturing into an automobile business;

1. Scope of operation

There are SUVs, trucks, sedans, motorbikes and all differenttypes of automobile you can think of. Each of these automobiles has many parts that may need your services. Think of what kind of auto services you will provide. You can either do all or choose a few of the following services such as:

  • Engine rebuilds
  • Glass work
  • Oil changes
  • Exhaust
  • Security systems
  • Transmission work
  • Brake system Etc.

2. A business plan

This is an important tool for any kind of the business you want to start. Depending on the scope of operation; financing, fixed and non-fixed capital, employees, working hours and other pieces of information are important. All these information should be captured in a business plan. A business plan is the framework of your auto shop and shows a blueprint of how your business will operate. Also outline the goals you hope to achieve with the business.

Components of a good business plan include;

  • Company description
  • Market analysis
  • Sales and marketing
  • Organization and management
  • Product and service line
  • Sources of funding and expenditure
  • Business location.

3. You will not work alone

Just like any other garage, you will need employees to work on cars daily regardless of how small the shop is. Hire employees who are qualified and certified. You will need employees for the following sections of your shop :

  • Mechanical operations
  • Sales and marketing
  • Customer care and front desk
  • Field work.

4. Statutory requirements

You must get licensure to operate an automobile shop. This is important to avoid getting into trouble with the law. You must personally get a license, your employees too and the business as well you will need;

  • To file articles of incorporation
  • Company registration
  • Purchase a business permit
  • Get a legal structure to cover you from personal liability
  • Get a business insurance cover
  • Develop a checklist for use when approaching any paperwork. You will need paperwork for inspections, motor vehicle sales, car body work, car part sales, auto glass work, etc.

5. You need practical skills

During the startup period, you will do the mechanical work yourself too. In order to do this, you need to acquire the practical skills needed to work in an auto shop. Go for training in mechanical work. Also learn how to drive because this will be part of your work when you need to go for a road test. You can go to college or become an apprentice in an established auto shop.

These are the top five things you need to know before you start an automobile business. Book practical driving test in the case of the need as you are going to start with the automobile business.

How-Women-can-be-Most-Inspiring-Speakers

Vintage Trophy of Woman at Lectern – Miss Goodwin sold on etsy by DianaDwain for $16.00

How women can be the most inspiring speakers?

Learn how and why women can be great speakers. XOXO Ana.

Watch the video to know more about the most inspiring speakers.

Every woman should have sturdy public speaking abilities. Unfortunately, holding a speech in front of an audience is not something everyone can do. Public speakers are inspiring because they teach us valuable lessons. Unlike men, women are more compassionate and they are not afraid to admit they have a sensitive side. Nonetheless, they can change people’s lives. Names like Oprah Winfrey, Margaret Thatcher, Hilary Clinton, and numerous others, have taught us so many things about life, business, politics, and success. These speakers managed to persuade other women to take matters into their own hands, make decisions, and become in charge of their fate.

Women can be just as powerful and men

In today’s modern society, women are enjoying their freedom to the fullest. Increasingly more work fields once dedicated exclusively to men, are now open to women. The business environment in particular, is finally populated by female entrepreneurs with excellent skills and incredible commercial abilities. Can women inspire other women to take matters into their own hands as far as their future is concerned? Do they have the power to put an end to domestic abuse, sexual harassment, and discrimination at the workplace?

Absolutely! Women who are public speakers have the power to persuade other women. They can relate to their stories, share something painful and life changing, or just talk about the wealth of traits women have over men. During a public speech, a female speaker cannot afford to become overly sensitive and weepy. She has to express seriousness, composure, and determination in order to boost interest and make the audience want to listen. Women speakers who want to be viewed as decisive, strong leaders must have stance. Here are some essential public speaking tips that can help women gain courage during a speech:

  • Don’t talk about yourself and find a way to relate your stories to your audience. Talk to the people, look them in the eye, ask questions to keep them engaged
  • Voice matters; lower your tone and find a way to sound demanding without being too authoritative
  • Take your time and try not to rush your public speech; emphasize the importance of certain words and phrases to hook the audience
  • Don’t wear too many accessories because it makes you seem more focused on your fashion style rather than on the people
  • Use catchy stories to engage the audience

Women are noteworthy public speakers

Not many agree with this statement, and yet, this is an accurate allegation. Many public speakers today are women, and believe it or not, they have what it takes to change perceptions and influence people’s thinking. Michelle Obama is an excellent public speaker. In 2012, at the Democratic National Convention, she talked about how women can use meaningful words to succeed in life. She also mentioned that women can achieve greatness as long as they remain calm and confident in their abilities.

Sometimes, an overly impersonal attitude during a public speech can backfire. Hillary Clinton for examples was criticized for her aggressive and cold speaking style. She failed to have a calm and friendly attitude, and she tried to use logical arguments to persuade her audience. Unfortunately, she failed.

Women public speakers can change lives  

It’s amazing what women can achieve when they work together. Common subjects like domestic abuse, discrimination, and sexual harassment at the workplace don’t exist in the speech of a male speaker. These topics are better explained by women, especially by those who have witnessed such incidents. Women speakers are not ashamed to admit that they come from broken families, and they’re certainly not afraid to share painful episodes from their lives if that means helping other women.

Women are incredible public speakers. Their tender, serene voice and warm attitude towards their audience can be quite enticing. They are not as assertive as men because they like to connect to their listeners, and they don’t like to brag about their successes. Women are modest human beings and they care more about meaningful things that are not related to business and money. Can they persuade other women to change their lives? Yes, they can; because unlike men, women are more compassionate and understanding with each other.

No business becomes great and successful without building strong business relationships. When it comes to the competition we have to make friends, work together and help each other out.

Thinking you can do it all alone and that the competition is the enemy will push you just that little bit closer towards failure.

What’s been stopping you? Do these ‘new encounters’ make you uncomfortable, maybe you’ve never had to do this before and you don’t know where to start.

Are you reluctant because you’re nervous, shy or fear rejection like I used to. Or are you to ignorant to realise you need to build strong business relationships and it’s not you and your business against the world!

If you’ve been reluctant up until now, read my 6 tips to start building strong business relationships you can start today.

1.      Friendly Approach

Little obvious? Yes, I knowbut buildingstrong business relationshipsbegins with a friendly approach. What I mean by a ‘friendly approach’ is not coming across to rigid and formal. But more like a new friend who you want to know more about.

My business is online so for me to engage with newassociates its important my personality shines through. And although I’m very professional I don’t want to sound like a lawyer or bank manager.

You have to find the balance between business and friendship whist remaining professional.

The Problem- You make the mistake of treating business relationships like you’ve working for a top law firm.  I made this early mistake and all my emails would start with “Dear Sirs or Madam” and included unnatural long sentences that sounded like this…

“I thoroughly enjoyed your website and have taken the opportunity to further spread the ‘word’ by engaging in the action of sharing via all major social networking communications”

What was I thinking!?

Instead I should have said…

“Hi there, how are you? I really enjoyed your website and it’s given me a lot to think about. I especially enjoyed the part about xxx. I will definitely be sharing. Thanks Naomi”

Action Take Away– When making new contact witha businessassociates,just relax. Don’t pretend you’re contacting a lifetime old friend, because that’s too relaxed! Write as though you’re contacting a new friend who you don’t speak to very often.

This way you’re reminded to be polite, friendly and you’re come across as natural.

Use words like “hey or hi” instead of “Dear”. Open up and be honest. If you’ve found something they’ve written particularly useful, tell them.

We all like to be complimented; just don’t go over the top with the praise.

2.      Be Useful and Helpful

Be knowledgeable and helpful when you can. Don’t bombard your new business associate with every single tip or piece of advice you can think of. But if you’ve seen a new app or read a great book they could benefit from,tell them.

The Problem – You’re so desperate to be liked you constantly contact your new business associate with rubbish pointlessinformation. Chances are they will have already received lots spam and cold calls from other people who are trying to make sales.

If you’reconstantly bombarding them with lots of unless information they will become suspicious.

Action Take Away- When trying to build new business relationships think about this example…

You know your friend is looking for new ‘brown leather boots’. If you saw a pairyou thought they would like and was reasonable priced, you would let them know.

But what you wouldn’t do is inform them single time you saw boots that were brown.

  • Brown ankle boots
  • Brown knee-high leather boots
  • Brown shoe boots
  • Brown snow boots

It would get annoying and silly. Eventually your friend wouldn’t take your opinion seriously and ignore your messages.

When making contact explain to your business associate whywhat you are telling them is useful and if you have used it yourself.

3.      Always Respond

How would you feel if you sent a text or an email but the person never responded? What would you think? How would you feel?

Forgotten?

Rejected?

Unsure where you stand?

Business is no different. The foundation of any relationship is regular contact and keeping the lines of communication open. If you’re going on holiday, make important business associates aware your contact will be limited.

The Problem – Yourespond at your convenience only and assume your contact knows what’s happening in your life. By the time you respond you realise months has gone by.

Action Take Away Everyone’s business is different. Some business owners can respond in hours or a few days and some can only manage once a week.Decide on a deadline period that you can respond and stick to it.

Can you response with 24 hours? Every 3 days? Once a week? My personal deadline is 48 hours (2 days).

4.      Little But Often

Don’t only make contact when you want or need something?

The problem–You only make contact when it will benefit you.

Action Take Away If a business associates is launching a new product, why not wish them luck? If they tweet out a question, can you answer it? If they write a really good post/article why not add a comment to it?

When you are making contact remember to be a useful resource and not just a “hi, how are things going?”

5.      If You Disagree, Be Constructive

Disagreeing with what a person has written or spoken about adds a different perspective to the discussion. It creates conversation and leaves room for a healthy debate to take place.

If you do disagree with what someone has said ensure it’s useful, valuable and you explain your reason behind your thinking. If possible provide an alternative.

Never disagree for the sake of disagreeing or createunnecessary arguments.

The Problem– People want to be noticed or they are extremely opinionated and have no idea how to deliver a diplomatic, useful criticism. It ends up coming across as rude and immature.

Action Take Away –Aim to be useful, valuable and knowledgeable. Your positive criticism should be of benefit to others. This way it doesn’t matter if you agree or disagree because you’ll be providing information others canuse.

6.      Don’t Engage in Arguments

It can be tempting and seem the only option, but engaging in an argument with business associates will only make you look unprofessional. To resistant an argument and still deliver your point of view across is a skill to be mastered and has to be practiced. Your anger will affect the point of view you’re trying explain and even if you’re right your outburst will make your point invalid.

The Problem – You aren’t used to being challenged or never learntself-control. When faced with another person’s anger our fight or flight response kicks in, rather than rational thinking.

Action Take Away–Look at your triggers. Do you get annoyed when you’re ignoredor dismissed? Do you get angry if you don’t get your own way? Or do you feel angry most of the time?

Look at your environment where you’re most angry. Are you normally in the car? At the end of you day?

Find two techniques that defuse your temper quickly and practice these at every opportunity.

One great method is the 10 second rule. Which works by counting to ten whenever you feel every angry.

A personal method I use, not just for when I’m angry but to quiet my mind. Is to find a quiet area and take three long deep breaths. This distresses me instantly and works even better in fresh, cool air.

Building new relationships can make you anxious and you procrastinate from fear of rejection. But your business needs this to grow and be successful. The best way to get over this is to make a start today and keep communicating.

We love your comments and shares besties :)

Almost everyone wants to have a child on their own. Apparently, not everyone is capable of bringing it the natural way due to different factors. In fact, one in every 15 couples around the world is not able to have a child at least after a year of trying to conceive. As a result, there are couples who are willing to do everything and take extreme measures just to have a baby. One of these is in vitro fertilization or IVF.

However, IVF does not guarantee success. The good news is there are new ways that can ensure success by detecting faulty egg cells. Read on to find out.

New IVF method

New method that can double IVF success rate

IVF is the process wherein the egg of the woman is fertilized with the man’s sperm in a test tube. Once fertilized, the embryos will be implanted in a woman’s uterus. Apparently, the success rate of IVF is within 30% because not all eggs are “good eggs.” This means chromosome abnormalities and genetic disorders are not totally removed because the IVF cannot control these circumstances. Although there are ways to screen embryos and determine any genetic defects, there is a risk of removing the cells from the embryos.

To increase the chances, Chinese and American researchers came up with a new process to check and remove faulty eggs and increase the success rate to 60%. This process is called the whole-genome sequencing.  

In this process, the researchers were able to develop a way of sequencing the entire genetic code of the “polar bodies” or the cells that emerge when the egg cells starts to divide and later on dies off. This way, those egg cells that died off can be removed without harming the embryo.

So what does this mean? And how can it increase the chances of getting pregnant through the IVF method?

It revolutionized the entire process of in vitro fertilization. Not only is it able to increase the chances of getting pregnant but also the whole-genome sequencing is able to detect genetic disorders and abnormalities and remove it completely before implantation. In other words, it is like hitting two birds in one stone.

However, the concern lies on the process itself. The whole-genome sequencing was developed for screening sperm cells. Up to this date, the process has no equivalent way in screening egg cells despite the fact that egg cells also have a possibility of having abnormalities and defects.

Are there other IVF methods to increase chances of birth rate?

Yes. This process is called <strong>endometrial scratching or a medically assisted damage to the womb particularly the inner lining. This procedure has showed an increase in pregnancy rate by 20% since it was first successfully demonstrated in 2003.

But before performing the scratching technique, a woman who is trying to get pregnant is advised to buy Endometrin or other oral contraceptive pill to up their chances of conceiving.

What do these methods imply?

Experts believe that if the clinical trial works, particularly that of the whole-genome sequencing, it could enormously increase the success rate of IVF. This means giving hope to those couples who are trying their luck to have their own child and experience how it is to become parents.
