Baby Boomer Generation: Different From Each Other In A Gazillion Ways

Just a quick thought...

The Baby Boom generation supposedly runs from 1946 to 1964. Remember, however, that those born in 1946 are totally different from those born in 1964. In fact, some kids born in '64 have at least one parent born in '46.

The Baby Boom generation is as vast and diverse as the stars. So, it pays not to lump us all into one giant monolithic category. Especially when you are considering a marketing plan or an employment choice.

Thanks much and enjoy your life!

How to be the Belle of the Ball, in Business, in Life

Did you ever stop to think you might not be the center of
things? Well, that's a lie, because you are. You live from the center every moment. But...

That does not mean you have to act the arse!

If you want to succeed in business, at work, in community service, anywhere, do as Mary Kay Ash, founder of the famous Mary Kay product lines, suggests. Make others feel important. 
  1. Be agreeable.
  2. Practice acceptance.
  3. Express appreciation.
  4. Show admiration.
  5. Don't criticize
  6. Share your approval.
  7. Ask questions to clarify.
And most of all, PAY ATTENTION. This alone may get you the deal, the job, the raise, the partner, the money!

Sound like a task? Yeah. You've been giving all the attention to yourself. Which is a tough habit to break. 

Time to reverse gears. 

Make me feel important.
