#ProFinder Contest

Very few people start a business the year that they become eligible for Medicare. I launched my small business, Accentuating Service, 6 days before my 65th birthday! Since my new business incorporated some of the elements of my prior business,I wasn't entirely entering unchartered territory, however, my new business included an unfamiliar field -- that of providing concierge services. Furthermore, my prior business didn't require me to become my own SEO expert or to write blog and social media posts as I was well-known in my former profession of legal recruiting.

A Peaceful Thanksgiving Day Celebration

Thanksgiving Day was always my favorite holiday until I was 36 and my mother passed away around that time. I've never truly enjoyed Thanksgiving Day since that time.

That doesn't mean, however, that you can't enjoy the holiday. This Thanksgiving Day comes after an especially contentious election season.There are bound to be some relatives who want to talk about it, find out how you voted, and either gloat or complain about the outcome of the election. If I were you, I wouldn't get sucked into that conversation.

Fantasy Relationships

There is a lot of chatter about online dating, but very little discussion of the fantasy relationships that are spawned by this means of connecting.

My definition of a fantasy relationship is a relationship that occurs between people who never meet in person. The people email and/or phone each other, frequently or occasionally, and might develop feelings for each other, but never take it to the next step, i.e., they never bring it into the real world.

There are a number of possible reasons why these interactions remain in cyberspace.

Be a Good Neighbor

I lived in a house until young adulthood. What I remember of our immediate neighbors is a young couple with a son and a vicious dog named Shadow and a wealthy elderly couple, on the other side of our house, who always owned Cadillacs. The woman was lovely and the man was a cigar-smoking braggart. I, also, remember good relations between my family and our neighbors.

When you live in a high-rise building, you experience a wide range of types, some of whom aren't all that desirable as neighbors. Since I live on the ground floor of my building, I mostly experience my neighbors in the laundry room.

Charming

Have you ever encountered someone who spoke with you for only a short time, but who made you feel very special? Have you ever wished that you could charm people in the same way that you were charmed?

You can. Although some people are naturally charming, I think that it's possible to learn how to be charming.

People are easily charmed by someone who is genuinely interested in them. How do you show your interest in someone? Ask the person questions about himself, his work, his life, his family, his interests, and so on, and pay attention to his answers.

How to Be a Good Friend

If you live and work in the New York metro area, there's a strong possibility that you live your life on steroids, figuratively-speaking. You move around at the speed of light, you multitask, you have to-do lists in a few places, you go from one barely-finished task to the next, and you feel stressed out a lot of the time. Is this a good way to live? Not really. Is there anything that you can do about it? Probably not, unless you're wealthy enough to hire people to assist you and most people aren't.

Be Unforgettable

We all like to think that we make an impact on others and that we are memorable. The problem is that many folks meet and interact with so many people, even in one year's time, that it's highly unlikely that they can remember everyone whom they've met.

That's why it's essential for business owners to keep their and their company's names in front of past, current, and potential clients on a regular basis.

There are a number of ways to remind clients of your existence. You can do as I do and send ecards on a regular basis; you can send regular newsletters; you can send articles of interest and/or invitations to events that would interest your clients; you can take your clients for lunch or drinks, etc.

When to Become Intimate

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Dating is tricky. It's a bit like a chess match. If you're an honest, straightforward person, dating is bound to be more difficult for you.

People, frequently, say that they don't play games or that they don't like game-playing when it comes to dating. If they're being truthful, these people need to learn how to play the dating game. For example, a woman who is assertive and who goes after what she wants needs to take more of a back seat in dating. Men like to be "the hunters" in a relationship and are more interested in women who allow them to pursue them.

How to Enjoy Dating

People who aren't in relationships during the holiday season might feel a bit self-conscious or lonely during this time of year as it appears that everyone else is half of a couple. Although this isn't, necessarily, factually true, it can feel that way, especially around the holidays and Valentine's Day.

Many people choose to be single as their independence is vital to their well-being, however, that is not true of everyone who is unattached.

Most people who are single date. Although some people enjoy dating, there are plenty of people who don't and who view dating as a necessary evil.

Scams

We are living in a world in which we have to be vigilant regarding criminals who try to scam us. These criminals contact us via email and telephone. In some instances, their pitches are very intelligent and logical and, if you've been having computer problems for a month, for example, and you get a phone call from someone claiming to be a techie who does outsourced work for Microsoft, you might be tempted to allow him access to your computer. DON'T! A legitimate techie won't initiate a call to a potential client and Microsoft never initiates calls to clients or potential clients.
