Marissa Kirkpatrick's insight:

Personally, I think tax refunds are the best way to save money and really get the ball rolling with it. Whenever I finally get my tax return this year, I plan to stick it straight in  my savings account like I never got it because after all, I didnt need it every other month of the year, and this way, when I see my amazing savings in my bank account, i'll only want to save more! I think it's fairly obvious that this source can be quite valuable to millions of people like me who spend their money before the check turns up in the mail.

How to Build a Reliable Work Ethic

How to Build a Reliable Work Ethic | Senior Seminar | Scoop.it
Have you ever noticed how some people seem to just get things done? They don’t need “productivity hacks” or GTD and procrastination is a foreign word to th
Marissa Kirkpatrick's insight:

Having trustworthy and reliable work ethic is going to be your number one money maker in your career or job. Work ethic determines a lot of things such as your amount of hours, who they call in when someone calls out, etc. Also, if you plan to move on from that job eventually, you want to give them your best so that they can be a reliable reference for your next employer to call and inquire about (and they're going to ask about your work ethic!)  Honestly though, work ethic is pretty simple: be ethical about your work practices. Work hard, work long, stay if they ask you to, come in when they call (or they wont), and be reliable. This website has a wonderful reputation and advice that I think everyone can be fairly certain is tried and true.

Interview Skills - Don't go to an interview until you have watched this. 4 important steps

Interview skills training, Interview skills questions and answers tutorial written by author of leading Interview skills books. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Teach...
Marissa Kirkpatrick's insight:

This is by far the most important skill that I've used in my life while applying for jobs and interviewing and if you don't know the answers to these questions, or offer the information if not asked, you will most likely not be getting that job. I definitely think its how I got my new job. Youtube, much like wikipedia, is an anyone-can-post-anything type of site which really can lower its accountability, however, the tips and information presented in this video and the others like it by the same publisher are factual and mostly common sense.
