With time freedom, you can take back control of your life and finally achieve the work-life balance you’ve always wanted. Here are three (3) business system to create your time freedom.

1) Start by identifying what makes you unique. What skills or talents do you have that nobody else does? Once you know what sets you apart, you can start to think about how to monetize those skills.

5) Get support from others who have gone through (or are currently going through) the same thing! There’s nothing like having a tribe of people who understand exactly what you’re going through and can offer helpful advice along the way.

New to the Job – Stand Out Positively in 3 Ways

You’re new to the job, and you want to make a good impression. It’s important to make a positive impression in your new position. Here are three (3) actions to take to stand out positively. First, be sure to show up on time and prepared for your shifts. This means having all the necessary equipment and being ready to work when your shift starts. Second, go above and beyond what’s expected of you. This could mean cleaning up around the workplace or offering to help with a project that’s outside of your normal duties. Finally, be friendly and positive with your co-workers and customers. This will help create a pleasant working environment and make you more likely to be remembered in a positive light. By following these simple tips, you can make a great impression and stand out from the rest.

A) Show Initiative

So you’ve landed a new job. Congrats! Now it’s time to show your boss what you’re made of by being the most proactive employee they’ve ever seen. But where to start? Here are a few ideas:

-Offer to help with tasks that are outside of your normal job description. If you see someone struggling with something, ask if you can lend a hand.

-Don’t be afraid to take initiative on projects. If you have an idea for something, speak up! Your boss will be impressed by your creativity and drive.

So go out there and show them what you’re made of! With a little hard work and determination, you’ll be on your way to success in no time.

B) Ask Key Questions

Now it’s time to ask some key questions to get yourself up to speed. What are the company’s core values? What is the dress code? What are the expectations for overtime? Asking these questions now will help you hit the ground running and avoid any unwelcome surprises down the road. And if you’re ever unsure about something, just ask. It’s better to ask and seem like a rookie than to not ask and look like an idiot. So go ahead and ask away – your new colleagues will be happy to help you out.

C) Come in 30 Minutes Early to Increase Your Learning Curve

One of the best pieces of advice for those who are new to the job is to come in early. This not only shows your boss that you’re dedicated, but it also allows you to learn the ropes faster. You can use this time to familiarize yourself with the company’s systems and procedures, and to get to know your co-workers. Additionally, coming in early gives you a chance to get started on your work before the distractions of the day set in. So if you’re looking to make a good impression and hit the ground running, be sure to arrive at your new job a little bit.

It can be daunting when starting a new job, but remember that you have the opportunity to make a positive impact. We hope these tips will provide some guidance as you begin your journey with your new team. If you need additional help or want to connect with me directly, don’t hesitate to reach out here. I wish you all the best in your new role!

Workplace Storytime – Hypocrites at Work

Have you ever worked with someone who was two-faced? You know, the kind of person who is all sweetness and light when the boss is around, but a real nightmare when they’re not? Well, these people are called hypocrites, and they can be found in every workplace. From the office gossip to the brown-noser, hypocrites come in all shapes and sizes. So how do you deal with them?

Well, first of all, it’s important to remember that not everyone is going to like you. And that’s okay. You don’t have to be best friends with everyone at work, but you should try to be professional. If someone is being a hypocrite, simply ignore them. Don’t engage in gossip or backstabbing yourself – that will only make you look bad. And if all else fails, talk to your boss about the situation. They may not be aware of what’s going on, and they’ll definitely want to know if there’s someone in the office who isn’t being team player.

There are four (4) things you can learn from the hypocrites at work. They are for you remain professional, use your own brain and not engage in group think, cover yourself with documentation (aka CYA) and how they can negatively impact company morale.

1. Remain Professional
If you’re working with a bunch of hypocrites, it can be tough to stay professional. After all, they’re the ones who are supposed to be setting the example! But no matter how difficult it may be, it’s important to remain polite and respectful. After all, you never know when you might need their help. Just remember: If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all!

2. Use Your Own Brain – Do Not Engage in Group Think
Hypocrites at work are in cliques. Do your best to avoid them. If you can’t avoid them, do your best to outshine them. Show them up with your work ethic and dedication. Let them know that you’re not going to put up with their crap. They might try to bring you down, but don’t let them. You’re better than that. And eventually, they’ll get bored of trying to bring you down and they’ll move on to someone else. So just keep doing your thing and don’t worry about the hypocrites. They’re not worth your time or energy because they participate in group-think activities. They either share similar opinions on things or share the narrative of the leader of the hypocrite group. Either way, focus your energy on getting your work done with excellence.

3. Cover Yourself with Documentation (aka CYA)
At some point in your career, you’re bound to run into a hypocrite. Maybe they’re the one who is always preaching about being honest but is the first to throw someone under the bus. Or maybe they’re the colleague who is quick to take credit for other people’s work. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to be prepared for these situations. After all, hypocrites can be dangerous to your career.

The best way to deal with a hypocrite at work is to have documentation to back up your claims. If you have emails or memos that prove you did the work, then you can use that as evidence. This way, when the hypocrite tries to sabotage you, you can show everyone what really happened. And if worst comes to worst and you do get caught in the crossfire, at least you know you did everything you could to defend yourself.

4. Hypocrites Negatively Impact Company Morale & Overall Culture
What ever happened to the golden rule? You know, the one that says treat others how you want to be treated? It seems like a lot of people in the workforce today have forgotten that age-old adage. Instead, they practice what I like to call the “do as I say, not as I do” method. These are the same people who are quick to point out when someone else makes a mistake, but turn a blind eye when they’re the ones in the wrong. They’re self-righteous and think they’re always right, even when they’re blatantly wrong. And worst of all, they’re hypocrites.

Unfortunately, hypocrites are everywhere, and they can have a negative impact on company morale and overall culture. Their actions (or lack thereof) can breed mistrust and resentment among employees. And when there’s no trust or respect, it’s hard to get anything done.

It can be tough to deal with hypocrites, especially when they’re in our own workplace. But there are ways to handle them that can minimize the damage they do and even help us learn a thing or two. If you need additional help dealing with hypocrites at work or want to share your workplace story with me, connect with me here. I’d love to hear your story and offer some advice to help you deal with those hypocrites without driving yourself crazy.

Forced to Return to the Office? 3 Concrete Ways to Fight for Your Location Independence

 

If you’re one of the many people who are being forced to return to the office against their will, there are a few things you can do to make the best of the situation. First, try to create a positive mindset for yourself. Remind yourself that it’s only temporary and that you’ll be able to appreciate your time at home all the more when it’s over. Second, take advantage of the opportunities that working in an office environment provides. Use your lunch break to socialize with colleagues, or take advantage of the company’s gym membership. Finally, make sure to schedule regular check-ins with your supervisor to ensure that you’re on the same page and that your needs are being met. By following these tips, you can make the most out of a difficult situation and come out stronger on the other side. If you do not want to return to the office and still have location freedom, implement these 3 things immediately…

1. Start Applying for Remote Jobs

So you’ve finally reached the end of your rope with your current remote job because they are forcing you to return to the office. Congratulations! You’ve officially become a millennial cliche. Now it’s time to start looking for another one. The first step is to update your resume. Be sure to include all of the relevant keywords that will help you get found in a search. Then, start scouring the internet for job postings. Indeed, LinkedIn, and even Facebook can be great places to find leads.
Next, reach out to your network. Let everyone know that you’re on the hunt for a new gig. You never know who might have a lead or be able to connect you with someone who does. Finally, don’t forget to brush up on your interviewing skills. After all, you’ll need to sell yourself if you want to land the job.

2. Start an Online Business or Side Hustle

Starting an online business is a great way to take control of your career and set your own hours. But before you quit your day job and start posting on Instagram, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, it’s important to have a clear vision for your business. What are your goals and objectives? What can you offer that is unique and valuable? Once you have a good understanding of your brand, you can start to build an online presence. This means creating social media accounts, a website, and other marketing materials. You should also start networking with other entrepreneurs to get some tips and advice. Finally, don’t forget to create a budget and stick to it. With careful planning and execution, you can turn your side hustle into a successful business.

3. Become Overemployed

What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means you now have more work than you can possibly handle with two (2) remote jobs which constantly running around like a chicken with its head cut off. But don’t worry, there are some things you can do to make the most of this situation. First of all, try to stay calm and organized. This may seem impossible at first, but if you can make a list of everything that needs to be done and tackle one task at a time, you’ll be surprised at how much you can get accomplished. Secondly, delegate tasks to others whenever possible. If you’re lucky enough to have colleagues or friends who are willing to help out, take advantage of that and offload some of the work onto them. Finally, learn to say no. This is probably the most important tip of all. When you’re already stretched thin, it’s tempting to say yes to every new project that comes your way. But if you want to avoid burning out, it’s important to know your limits and stick to them. Keep in mind, being overemployed can provide you with the benefit of letting go the remote job forcing people to return to the office and keep the other. It provides you with options that are normally not possible.

Location independence is a hot topic and for good reason. It can be the key to unlocking a life of freedom and flexibility. But it’s not always easy to achieve, especially if you don’t have the support system in place or working with employers that do not want to be flexible anymore. If you need additional help fighting for your location independence, connect with me at here. I’d love to chat with you about your unique situation and see how I might be able to help. If you want to work with me directly to specifically structure your career path, go here. Until then, keep up the good fight!
