I'm telling you the truth...

My friends, if you keep following other people's opinions about yourself, most likely you'll be heading in the wrong direction across the waters of life.

Case and Point: Make Your Own Decisions.

Now, if you kick-in your turbo engines; and take control of the minor things in life, then, you can change your p direction to win.

I Believe You Can...!

Always remember this point...

Building your confidence level to reach next levels of expectations, can be found in your daily habits.

Ordinary people, do extraordinary things, even if it's on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube. They don't stop until they win.

STEP 1. They form a durable mindset called: A Positive Attitude

  1. ATTITUDE: Is the art of thinking or demontrating feelings about someone or something, including yourself to invoke a can-do-attitude.

Key: If you think about something, then be about something and get things done.

In life, we often learn things the hard way because we are committed to old bad habits. It's not your fault.

By the time you reach for a change, you have other people's stuff/crap or mess piled up in your face. Right or wrong?

Oh yeah..."crap" is not a bad word.

!SPECIAL REPORT! Don't let this happen to you.

If you want to make progress in life, you have to "push other people's crap out of your life."

I Believe You Can...!

Must Read Without Failure.

Listen carefully...

"When you consistently listen to the concepts of negative people, it can decrease your possibilities of achieving your lifetime goals." ~EA

"If you don't dream, your life won't mean, diddly squat to anyone you truly love."

My friends, you must dare to dream out loud, then everything else will fall-in-place for you.

Must read NLT 10pm or wait for the next day.

Today, perhaps more than recent years would mention, Self Development Actualization has become more important for mental health concerns.

TURNKEY POINT 1. Consider removing toxic people from your inner-circle (MINDSET) before irreplaceable damage is done.

Avoiding toxic people and life will reward you amazingly.

Listen very carefully...

Do you want to succeed in the job market? (E.g., finding a job, passing your interview, negotiating your salary, being hired first, on-the-spot cash bonuses and more...)

The ending point is always greater than starting point in life. The turnkey is all about...

Learning To Paint Your Future:

This technique causes everything else to fall-in-place for you.

Must Read Without Failure!

You know for a fact that...

  • People try to be a "Jack Of All Trades." Right?
  • Some people ask the wrong questions, in-turn, they get the wrong answers. Right?
  • They are super at singing, yet, they want to do the acting role as well. Right?

Listen, unless your name is REBA McENTIRE with a dual successful career in both singing and acting...

First, maximize your skills in your area of expertise, then, branch out for additional success.

Then, everything else will fall-in-place for you.

I Believe You Can...!

Must Read Without Failure!

People will generally fall into one or two categories as described below:

  1. "Another One Bites The Dust" (Song by Queen.)

OR

  1. "I'm Every Woman" It's Only Me. (Song by Whitney Houston.)

A. Successful artists BEGIN with vocal coaches. Therefore...

B. Get yourself a MENTOR, that knows what the heck they're talking about.

C. Pay attention to INSTRUCTIONS and don't reinvent the ferris wheel.

D. Walk into the INTERVIEW room and say these 14 - 21 power words.

Allow everything else to fall-in-place.

.

As often, with music never played on mainstream media; today I leave you with modern Tango from Buenos Aires, Argentina. https://youtu.be/mQusfSWFt6M?si=1BPajGEzRaisDq4O

Like many of you, I too worked as a rep and did chat support, I dont know how I survived it since being super fast is not my strong point and as you may notice, most companies ask that chat reps take care of several chats at a time.

Company owners and most managers call it “ fast paced environment” . I call it stressing out uselessly….

My logic is: how many customers do we gain by chatting super fast vs how many customers do we lose due to the floppiness and stress that inherently comes with attending several chats simultaneously?

After my first promotion and being able to decide on the course of the customer service team I was leading, I decided to cut away with that crazy and stressful habit I still see today in most other companies for this function.

I established a simple rule: 1 agent - 1 chat and the hell with all that stress.

There were a few other things I always noticed about chat support I never liked:

The chat systems I always worked with always ask the visitor for their names and email. So I made it very clear to my teammates to never ask their names as they stepped into the chat; this is a mistake I see often still today..They just have to read the name on the system and greet them accordingly. Its so annoying to have to say things twice ..

And so I also instructed team members to carefully read the visitor's message as to answer every single point brought up and never ever ask for something the visitor already expressed. I find this is the most annoying thing that happens to me as a customer.

And then a few years back, in the middle of Covid and given all the mess we had with shipment delays and Brexit-related issues, we often accumulated important chat waiting queues.

I thought it was a ripe time to bend my rule and have our kids take care of several chats but I thought of a better solution:

I suggested owners IT team code us some short games during the chat wait time both before an agent came in and in case we needed to make the visitor wait more than 45 seconds in the middle of a communication.

The games are all company product and culture related, fast and easily played and if the visitor wins they get a discount on any future purchase.

The reaction was a soaring success; too much actually; we got many more visitors and I was left with the same problem again! So I hired a few super fast 20 year olds that do just chat , and still on a 1 chat 1 customer basis but we get so many visitors its a great ROI, people love playing these easy games for discounts! And its an awesome opportunity to convert visitors into customers

Anyone else hate the stress that goes along with having to do several chats at the same time? How would you remedy this if you had budgetary restraints and couldnt hire more agents, how do you improve it as an agent?

This is an issue I think is always worthwhile coming back to under different forms.

From my small company recruiter experience, I think these are the points I see as most important:

1 - Showcasing past achievements: Most applicants always limit themselves to just saying their past experience. I find this is all just goody goody talk. I think that as applicants we need to demonstrate our best past successes by explaining how we did it and what were the results and also bringing or attaching data proof whenever possible.

2 - Customizing the resume to the role: Guys if you send a resume only minutes after a job post appears, from a recruiter standpoint it's not even worth reviewing it... because its impossible that you customized or bothered to learn something about the company.

3 - Use ATS I find companies are not realizing how much of a false positive this is but unfortunately damm thing is out there so if you dont prescreen your resume it can easily be discarded despite you being a super value.

4 -Avoid Self-labelling: Folks saying that you are confident you can add value to the team or you are the best fit or that you can change things head over heels is only your self-confidence. When I see this it goes directly to resumes heaven. Again, we all need to prove our value by explaining our best achievements plus the way we write or other pluses. It's the recruiter that needs to be convinced and begin to have that confidence in you...

5 - Avoid cookie-cutter lines that mean absolutely nothing... Saying some overused expressions like " I'm passionate about", " I'm an effective customer service representative" I find it shows a lack of originality and thus, of genuine interest in a role. Given that 99% of applicants use these words, using authentic expressions it can surely positively impact any recruiter. You can say things like "my drill in life" "what truly makes me tick", "I feel wholesome when"

6 - Use a Cover Letter: It allows you to explain some key achievements and show your personality. Why not use a video ora audio format.
