How to market yourself

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

Are you a recent graduate? Maybe you just had a revelation and are embarking on a new career path. Either way, knowing how you are an asset will not only develop your network, but also your net worth. Effectively marketing you and “your brand” will require a great deal of introspection. There is no one better suited to brag about you, your experiences, and your passion than you. Start with what you know you like. Then make a list of the kinds of work you find the most valuable or least taxing. A wise man in ancient China once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I couldn’t agree more. For the long run, it’s imperative that you are doing something that feels less like a job and more like a calling. Take everything as a learning opportunity. Revise your resume with each new encounter. Journal the things that provided meaning and also the things that felt mundane. Even with jobs you that you don’t like, ask yourself “why not?” this is where the introspection comes in. Are you more sedentary or dynamic? Are you meticulous or do you…

Staycation

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

A staycation has all the benefits of a vacation without the costs and travel associated with a typical vacation. This option is certainly viable for those not looking to hit weekend traffic and will offer a saving option for next year’s vacation. Take off work and download some ocean sounds. Try out the attractions in your city that you never have before. And use the money you saved on not travelling to try different foods in your area. Stay in and venture, you might just surprise yourself. #fastcashvirginia #fastcashtitleloans #fastcash #titleloans #cash #va #dc #md

Speeding

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

This blog post is a little bit of a tangent and hopefully serves as a reminder that SPEEDING IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. It will not serve you in the long run. Any time saved on the road is marginal with the traffic lights in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. Not only is it unsafe, it is unlawful to go higher than the permitted speed limit. Instead, I encourage you to set the alarm five minutes earlier or leave the house sooner. Do not speed, you may end up paying a $200 ticket just to get to work on time. Don’t do it!

Keeping a journal

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

Just like in school when they encouraged note taking, keep a journal and jot down important lessons and revisit it as often as you deem necessary. There’s only one way to get good at something—even life, it takes practice. Don’t make the same mistakes you did yesterday. By all means, move forward from the past, but do not forget it.

Don’t burn bridges

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

A professor of mine advised that no bridge is worth burning—you never know when you could be in need of an old associate. Know your worth and don’t stick around where you’re not valued, but definitely remember: when you do it by yourself you limit yourself. It can be exhausting, always being the bigger person, but like any good exercise, the results are worth it. Practice patience on your route to wisdom as well as responding as opposed to reacting. Developing this trait will serve you well as time progresses. If you find yourself confronting conflict, try to be as disarming as possible. You’ll find that your communication skills will increase exponentially. Look for an opportunity to learn from every mishap! And remember every confrontation has the potential to be constructive.

A lesson from an engineer

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

When faced with a problem there are six major principles that many engineers look to in order to find a solution. This process doesn’t only apply to tasks specifically designed for engineers. It can be used wherever problem solving may be needed. Identify the problem: Ask a question. How do I get from A to B? How can I get there faster, or more safely? Make it as specific as possible remember you can only solve one problem at a time. Brainstorm: Think of as many potential solutions as possible. No such thing as a bad idea (unless acted upon!). Let the visions flow uninhibited. Design: make a well-informed decision from the many you’ve brainstormed. Weigh the pros and cons. Just like you can only solve one problem at a time, you can only formulate one solution at a time. Choose as wisely. This is the planning process. This is the blueprint. Measure twice and cut once. Think about the plans of your solution in detail. Build: Arguably the most important part of this process is to follow through with action. A drawing of a bridge will not act as a bridge. This is the part where hands get dirty…

In case you don’t have the money to replace your roofing with solar-thermal panels, or double-paned windows, here’s a short practical list on how to make energy savings in your home. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. Use a timer setting on the thermostat. If no one is home during the day, there’s not need to temper your house.
