3 Steps to Find a Business Mentor
As a newly single person, I get excited when someone asks me out to dinner. Then I hear, “I’m treating!”
“Wow, that’s promising. Someone really likes me!”
But, my enthusiasm is dampened when I hear this…
“I’m treating because I want to pick your brain.”
Now, at my age, I’m thrilled that anyone wants to pick a piece of my body, but my least favorite part to give away for free is my brain. Isn’t that called intellectual prostitution? I’m whoring my brain away for a filet of Salmon.
I understand why I get approached this way. After all, I’m a former standup comic turned speaker and one of the few people who actually gets paid to do what I love — to stand in front of others to entertain and inspire. Most people who consult with me on improving their presentation skills want to learn the necessary steps so they can quit their day job and get paid to speak.

This Personality Trait Can Lessen Your Stress and Anxiety
Stress and anxiety at work are linked to a future outcome. For example, you might worry about getting a raise, completing a project, increasing sales, or closing a deal.
But here’s a secret: If you relate to your outcomes in a humble manner, and allow yourself to have a different result than desired, there’s less to stress over.
Often the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “humble” is whether others view you as humble. Humility, however, is more about the way you relate to yourself and your environment, rather than how society perceives you.
True humility requires you to untie your sense of value and worth to the outcome, so that your worthiness is not at question.
This does not mean that you sit by idly because you have nothing to prove to others; rather, it means shifting your sense of worth so that when you are applying for a new position or asking for a higher salary, your entire sense of worth is not at question with your application or request.
Developing your humility allows you flexibility in your career to take one step forward, two steps backward, three steps forward, one step backward, and so on. If at every juncture your entire sense of worth is tied up in your results, there’s no doubt you will be incessantly stressed. When you let go of external attachments, you free up space to be more creative, productive, and effective.
Here are five ways to start developing your humility today:
5 Conversation Habits Of Charismatic People
There’s a reason Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most popular actresses today. It isn’t just that she’s smart and talented-she’s also charismatic. Even when she fell at the Oscars, on her way to accept her award she handled it with grace, humor, and confidence. “You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing, but thank you,” she joked onstage.
“Charismatic people can convey all kinds of emotional content, but what they do is they make you listen,” says Ruth Sherman, a Connecticut-based celebrity speech and media coach. “They’re interesting enough regardless of what they’re saying, so you perk up and listen.”
