Group chat and messaging tool for business

Group chat is an important tool in the communications toolbox. It is valuable for special cases and less useful for general cases.

Don’t fall into the entitlement trap

Life doesn’t owe you a thing. Every person on this planet is facing some struggle. It may be mental, it may be physical, it may be one you can totally relate to or not at all. 

Everyone has a bunch of demons locked in their closet and life offers little sympathy and help to make them go away. Whatever you want, it is your responsibility to go out there and do what’s necessary to get it — regardless of what life throws at you.

Tailor Your Versions

Recruiters favour a résumé tailored for the specific job you’re seeking. They are put off by generic documents that look like they’ve been sent out time and again.

Despite this fact, most candidates don’t bother to customize their résumés. That’s quite shocking in light of the fact that most job seekers typically apply for upward of 100 to 200 jobs.

Believe everyone has an interesting story to tell

There is no such thing as talking about yourself in a vacuum. Connection implies having two sides in the relationship.

If you go into a conversation thinking only of yourself — your reputation, your goals, your achievements — the other party is going to sense that right away and you’re going to come across as self-centered and arrogant.
