My own experiences on Manners…

•December 18, 2009 • Leave a Comment

I guess you can say I am passionate when it comes to people who don’t have good manners. I just don’t get how people can’t have manners, where did you grow up in a brawling ring like holy geez!. Whether its a young punk kid or a 85 year old woman , regardless you should have some sort of manners. Especially people who are at work should really have their manners in tact!.


So I was in the store the other day waiting in a huge line with my cart full of groceries and have been waiting for just as long as anybody else there, when a cashier was either starting his/her shift or coming back from a break. When….. he/she just opened her cash, with no intention of taking “the next person” in line or anything just a herd of carts racing to her cash. With no intentions I think of taking the next person in line ….. like how freaking rude!  and to be honest isn’t that how it works.

  • LinkedIn
  • MySpace
  • Flickr
  • YouTube

now that list is just a few, i can’t imagine how many more there are out there. Social Media is a huge part of the business as Patti Church( of, when she was a guest speaker in class she said, that people don’t like change, she said this is a train and it’s going by fast so you better get on it, or its just gonna go by, and you miss out on that opportunity. She said in order to have a good appearance in in the social media world, you need to create the online presence.

Patti also said she feels that in order to stand out in the social media world you need to be passionate about what it is your doing, becasue you can’t lie on the internet. She promotes Twitter non stop, she loves twitter its the way social media is going. She urged everyone to look into, I got the impression that Patti would be an amazing professor or just to be able to sit with her and she how she does things, she’s very inspiring.

“Networking is so important in a business, to get new clients, meet new people, and have aweosme connections, that’s what its’s all about you have to Network, Network, Network!” said Wendy, when she came into our class as a guest speaker she was so motivational about what she does and how she got there. She told us that without networking it’s hard for your business to grow.

In my opinion the larger network of contacts you have the more work you can get for yourself or your business, also it’s a great way to promote who you are and what you do.

very interesting video on networking
