  1. Narrow Your Focus

1Try to focus on one aspect of an industry, preferably one that you can master with ease. By finding your niche, you will be able to focus all of your energy and effort into making those particular areas a great success.

 

 

 

 

  1. Know When to Get Help

2If you want to succeed, you can’t rely on your capabilities and ambitions alone. Why not get some help in the form of a mentor or partner that will help you develop and grow? They can aid in avoiding common pitfalls or overcoming future obstacles.

 

 

 

  1. Prepare For Failure

3Failure is inevitable and, more importantly it is vital to your growth as a person as well as an entrepreneur.  Every situation, no matter how bad or bleak, is a learning experience. All of these unfortunate incidents will help shape the leader and the success story that you will become in the future.

 

 

 

  1. Take Risks When Necessary

Best Budgeting Tips for Your 20s!

All of my friends are like ‘just get what you need, I don’t care how much it costs’ type…and I’m more like, ‘hey, I’m going to be here a while trying to figure out which pack of toilet roll gives us the best value.’

  1. Learn To Differentiate Between ‘Wants’ and ‘Needs’a

The line that separates the two can be a bit blurry sometimes, but you’re the only one who can make these decisions. Food, housing, and warmth, of course, fall under the needs category. But if you just use things for entertainment, then it’s probably a want, given that less expensive options are usually available.

 

 

  1. bUse A Personal Finance App

The greatest challenge when it comes to managing your finances is actually sticking to one. There are lots of apps for your smartphone that can help you monitor your expenses so you can stay on top of your money.

 

 

 

  1. cReview Your Expenses

If your expense report tells you you’ve achieved your budget goals, then YAY well done! However, don’t stop there, keep on reviewing your expenses and look at categories you spend the most on. Prices of utilities and even your rent can change, so this can help you determine whether or not you need to adjust your budget to meet your current needs.

 

 

  1. dComparison Shop

You can still live comfortably while saving money. There are comparison websites and voucher websites out there to help you find the cheapest option on many household items like toilet roll or apples. Spending a little time to do your research will pay off greatly for you in the long run.

 

 

  1. eFinancial Goals

From the day you create your budget you should also be planning for your financial goals. This includes planning for the unexpected like setting up an Emergency Fund in case of an accident or an unexpected car repair. This list can also include fun things; like saving for a car or a holiday and should act as a motivator of what you are working towards.

5 Easy Ways To Spruce Up Your LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn is just as important as a paper résumé these days so make sure yours is up to date and in order.  Instead of spending hours perfecting your profile, it’s smarter to focus on a few key items that will really make an impact, so read our top tips below!

Don’t forget to DOWNLOAD DatePlay App HERE ;)!


 

USE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTO Men's Black Coat With White Polo Shirt

It may seem obvious but you would be shocked at how many #selfies and darkly lit pictures I see on LinkedIn profiles. Good lighting and a genuine smile will work wonders but make sure no one else is in your photo.

 

WRITE IN ACTIVE VOICE

adult, alone, beautiful

I always have trouble with figuring out how to best list my responsibilities on my résumé in a compelling way, especially the wording to use.  Writing in active voice subconsciously implies enthusiasm and action without any additional craziness or effort.  

 

ASK FOR RECOMMENDATIONS

They add credibility to your account and give your audience a chance to learn more about you as a reputable professional. It doesn’t even have to be your boss who recommends you, it could be a co-worker.

 

HIGHLIGHT YOUR CURRENT PROJECTS

businesswoman, company, computer

Does the ‘summary’ section of LinkedIn make you itch? There are 100 questions in your mind like ‘what do you include, how long should it be, what tone of voice should I have?’ Discuss that huge project you’re working on, or the new initiative you just pitched to your manager. This is obviously going to change pretty consistently, which gives people a reason to come back and keeps your profile looking fresh and up-to-date.

4 Social Media Mistakes Seriously Hurting Your Job Search

If you want to make a good impression in today’s world then beware of how you present yourself online. Trust me; your employer does not want to see photos of you necking down a bottle of vodka in an inappropriate slogan t-shirt on a lads holiday to Ibiza.

Ranting about your job or a fellow employee on social media

1

This is pretty much a no-brainer. So avoid blowing off some steam by tweeting about how annoying your boss is or how you really hate your job, because this will definitely lead you down the route of unemployment.

 

Leaving your LinkedIn summary blank

2

Your profile summary is essentially the front page of your personal brand for anyone who comes across your profile. It’s a great way for someone to get a quick sense of what you’ve been up to in your career so far and what you’re like as a person.  Don’t leave it blank because you could miss out on an important opportunity.

 

 

Losing touch with a great colleague or mentor

3

Connecting with colleagues or mentors online is very common on sites like LinkedIn so don’t take those connections for granted.  You might need their advice or a reference at some point later in your career, and if you’ve been MIA for a long time, it’ll seem like you’re just using them.

.

.

Having no social media presence whatsoever

4

It’s not Halloween, so don’t be a ghost online. I’m not saying you should share every thought you have in 140 characters or post what you’re having for brunch on social media.  But bosses tend to Google potential employees to find additional information that could set them apart from other candidates.

Relationship Goals That Are Actually Worth Achieving

There are career goals, fitness goals, brunch goals but the most important are relationship ones. My idea of relationship goals doesn’t involve celebrity couples. I’m more about that elderly couple sitting on their sofa, watching David Attenborough with cups of tea.
