What Makes You Think Moms Don’t Work? Are you CRAZY?

Why ask moms if they are ready to work? I saw this question in several online ads and print ads.  This post is based on my first response.  ARE YOU CRAZY?

The word MOM is work in itself. The word MOM identifies a responsibility outlines in numerous task that last for a lifetime. From the time you are conceived ; your mom is working.. She is working to keep you healthy. She is working to increase her knowledge and skills to take the best care of you possible. She is working to not smoke during her pregnancy. She is working to halt drinking during her pregnancy. She is working to eliminate illegal drugs from her system while she is pregnant. She is working to prioritize use by enhancing her skills and abilities for motherhood. She is working as a career woman to provide the best for you. She is going to school to give you a better life. She is working to deprive herself of necessities to ensure you have.  She is working to provide transportation to enable you to have access to what is needed.  She is working to ensure you receive the necessary nutrients for a healthy childhood.  She is working to overcome any obstacles that interfere with you.  She is working for you to be successful.

Majority of mothers work 24/7 in a wholistic manner for the betterment of  you.  The mothers who  gave you away worked a strategy to give you a better life.  The mothers who made mistakes worked; lacking skills for positive result.    The word “MOM” means accountability and responsibility 24/7.     Don’t get frustrated; open your eyes.  Moms do work; salary not required.

No Job! No Money! You Just Broke!

Job search funds wearing away; got no luck and less money.  Searching online.  Searching in person.   What’s a broke person suppose to do?  Plan and cut cost. 

You can save money during your job search; “cha-ching.
You can cut cost; reduce travel expenses.
Save on wasted hours; plan your time wisely.
Make job search savings a priority while looking?

Attend virtual career fairs.
Access employers online.
Complete online applications
Submit resumes online

Some job search opportunities are offline
Some resumes are hand delivered.
Interviews require your presence.
Plan accordingly.

If you have to pound the pavement; wear comfortable shoes.
This could save in medical bills.
Yes, there are so many beautiful shoes; and there are so many bruised and swollen feet.
Yes, the shoes are cute; but your feet made a horrid impression.
Maybe it was the polish; maybe it was the toe handing out.
You can put your flats in your purse or briefcase for the interview.
Everyone is not impressed with over the top shoes.

If you ride the bus or train to collect applications; plan your route.
You may be use transfers to save money.
Know the bus schedules; you may save time between stops.

If you use the taxi; have a voice in route to your destination.
The taxi doesn’t have to take the longest or the scenic route; cha-ching.
Get dropped off at a central location within walking distance or short bus rides to retrieve applications, drop off resumes, and attend interviews within proximity at scheduled times.  
The taxi waiting between stops may not be cost-effective with the meter running.

Ensure your vehicle is operable.
Ensure your vehicle has enough gas.
Ensure tires are satisfactory.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Ensure fluids are up to par.
Ensure no warning lights are on.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Ensure you are within the speed limit.
You need to get to your destinations in a timely fashion.
You need to reach your destination.

Getting tickets decreases your funding; and cost valuable time in your job search process.
Getting a tire blowout may cost you money; and a job.
Warning signs on your vehicle may  cause you to lose out on employment opportunities.
Expired registration and inspections can empty your pockets.

Spend your job search time wisely.
It cost more to drive back and forth.
It cost more to catch taxi after taxi after taxi.
It cost more to transfer opportunities. 
Check into the express transportation that operates in some areas.
Identify a safe place to read, review, prepare for the next interview.
Visit the library, museums, and other public places of interest  during scheduled same day  interviews.
You can accomplish a lot online.
Utilize the online experience as much as possible during your job search.
You can save time and money.
Job applications can be completed and submitted online.
Some can be downloaded and printed online for in person submission.
Resumes can be submitted directly to employer sites.
Print resumes can be mailed.
Resume on CD; including video can be delivered; mailed also. .
Interviews may be through chat, telephone, in person; based on employer’s request.

Dressing for success during a job search can be expensive.
Find a Dress For Success program in your area.
Visit the local Goodwill or Salvation Army.
The United Way has excellent nonprofit resources to assist.
The Society of St Vincent de Paul has sources and resources.
Churches may provide assistance.
Locate other thrift shops that may have affordable and appropriate attire for your job interest.

There are community-based organizations that assist with bus tokens.
Some provide vouchers for an effective job search.
Your state human services agency may provide assistance.

Success is worker smarter and having a successful job search while cutting expenses.  Don’t get frustrated.  Don’t get  mad.  Success is the best revenge.  I am the author of this article; which is also posted on my website.  Cutting cost during job search articles will be updated regularly.

Where’s my DADDY? Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads missing from a child’s life!   Dads do you wonder about the children missing from your life?  Dads, do you care?  Dads, can you step up and do more than father the children who are lost or damaged within?

Father’s Day acknowledges fatherhood.  Fathers are missing in action with so many children, youth, and adolescents.  Fathers are still missing from so many adult children’s lives.   

Children are thinking about their fathers.  Parents, guardians,  caregivers think about the children.    Children are saying within:  “I am negative about my daddy because I know that is what you want to hear.   I long to know if he can be a father to me.   I long to know if there is a chance for a relationship.  I long to rid myself of this empty voice.     I dare not say or share.  I am broken.  I am damaged.          I wonder:”

Why isn’t my Dad in the picture with me?  Why was his face erased?  What happened to the memories?

You say; “Your father is no good.”

You say; “Your dad is a deadbeat.”

You say; “Your dad better not show his face around here.”

You say; “You have no dad.”

You say; “You have full custody of me.”

You say: “My dad works all the time.”

You say;  “Your dad was a mistake.”

You say;  “Your dad is a criminal; a thug.”

You say; “Your dad ain’t right in the head.”

You say; “I can’t stand your dad’s family.”

“You say; “My family can’t stand the sight of him.”

You say; “Your dad is dead.”

You say;  “It’s best he steers clear of us.”

You say; “You ain’t got no dad.”

You say: “I’m all the dad you need.”

You say; “You don’t need no dad.”

You say; “Your dad don’t know you exist.”

You say; ” I did the best I could by myself.”

You say; ” You dad will pull me down.”

You say; “Your dad don’t love nobody but himself.”

You say; “Your dad is a bad influence.”

You say; “I don’t want you to grown up to be like him.”

You say; “Your dad is a bum.”

You say; “Your dad is dumb.”

You say; “Your dad is stupid.”

You say;  “Your dad is a loser.”

You say: Dad has no skills.”

You say; “Your dad can’t hold a job.”

You say;  “Nobody won’t hire your Dad.”

You say;  “Dad dropped out of school.”

You say; “Your dad don’t deserve nothing.”

You say; “You say my dad has to pay first.”

You say; “My dad is locked up..”

You say; “Your father is good for nothing.”

The child thinks; ”  All I hear is you say, he this, you thatWhat about me?  I am the one who can can’t say Daddy.   You say;  but what do you do?

Parents, guardians, caregiver; look at the child.  Don’t just look on the outside.  LOOK and the child.  Do you see he’s broken?  Do you see she’s damaged?  You don’t have to live together.  You don’t have to be best friends.  This is no Utopia.  LOOK AT THE CHILD?   What should you do? Dads who fathers a child; take a step to do what you should do.  Father’s Day is one day; being a father is all year-long.

This is about the child being broken. damaged, even bitter.   Young or old; growing up without a dad has an impact.  Success Is The Best Revenge.   Parents, guardians, caregivers this is not all about you.  What do you do?

Happy Holidays! Money For Xmas Anyone?

Happy Holidays To All!  I wish you good cheer!  Happy Holidays to all the holiday shoppers!  How do you spell Christmas?   

M-O-N-E-Y

Happy Holidays to the family who saved to buy the Xbox, Xbox connect, Wii, or Play station.   Good cheer to breathing a sigh of relief.   No stress to begin the New Year 2012.  No debt collectors calling you nonstop.  No tears shed because you didn’t budget for Xmas.  No drastic steps to pawn your cherished possessions.  No urgency to sell your food stamps.  No mental and physical exhaustion from last-minute strategies to provide presidents for Christmas.  No desperate measures to acquire Xmas gifts through illegal activities to generate money for gifts.  Good cheer to you.

Happy Holidays to the family who stayed together.  The lack of money for the holidays did not put a wedge in the relationship.  The lack of money did not create dissension in the home.  The lack of money did not lead to vicious arguments.  The lack of money did not lead to physical abuse.   The lack of money did not lead to verbal abuse.  The lack of money did not cause you to deter from your priorities.

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!   Your budget saved Xmas!   Just imagine what you can accomplish.

Happy Holidays To The Homeless!

Happy holidays to the homeless.  I wish you good cheer.  I wish you warmth.  I wish you a good meal.  I wish you good health.  I wish you shelter.  I wish you a dry spot in the rain.  I wish you a warm spot in the cold.  I wish you safety in danger times.  I wish you peace when there is unrest. 

Happy holidays to the homeless who had a home and now it is gone. 

Happy holiday to the homeless who were healthy; but, now a sickness has taken over. 

Happy holidays to the special needs; who are no longer looked after. 

Happy holidays to the homeless who were hurt, abused; and forgotten.

Happy holidays to the children who are lost on the streets.

Happy holidays to the pregnant teens and teen parents kicked out into the streets.

And those of you who can truly make it a holiday with meaning; step up.

Homelessness is a reality.   Communities; your efforts to make a difference in the life of a homeless person and show them a brighter tomorrow can make 2012 an awesome year.

You may have a home today; you may have a home tomorrow; just remember, they had a home also.

Put the happy in holiday!   A business researcher who cares enough to write about information and social issues to make a difference.  Success Is the Best Revenge;  combat homelessness.
