I Don’t Work In My Pajamas

person-holiday-vacation-woman

I started working at home back in the ’80’s when it wasn’t so cool or even a trend.

As the time progress and working at home become more and more the “norm”. Big business started to incorporate this options to their employees.  It was cost effective, more productivity, and flexible. It was a total win-win for both the businesses and the employees.

The idea was sold with the concept of “work at home”, work in your pajamas, telecommute, save time and money, work from anywhere, be your own boss!

However, it’s not all that flexible, easy and you really shouldn’t work in your pajamas. As the virtual world keeps involving and you have more and more virtual conferences, webinars, meetings and so on.

We the virtual employee or freelance individuals have established a more professional look. Not only does it give us more credibility, but it does set us apart from the typical workforce.  We have incorporated a look, “The Causal Business Friday Look” as our regular look.

Why? You may ask……Simple, practical, professional, productive, credible, stylish, and above all the beginning of the minimalist trend.

If you are in the new workforce and have the power to work at home. Follow these simple rules.

  1. No Pajamas
  2. Exercise
  3. Eat healthy
  4. Daily Grooming
  5. Dedicated Work Space
  6. Take Time Off

Remember, all work and no play can hurt your morale and make you depress and stressful.

Happy

Wishing You The Best For 2017

lets-make-this-year-awesome

Wishing you and your family the best for the new coming year. I hope we have all learned, appreciated, and value all the lessons 2016 had to offer. Some were not the best, some were very painful as we lost dear friends and family members.  Our financial struggles might have gotten better, others might have gotten worse.  Relationships flourished while others had to walk away.

Still, we are all here! Promising ourselves this new coming year will be better, and it will!

I have tremendous faith in you. You will make it happen!

Let’s Make Some Noise!  Happy New Year 2017!

Let’s Make 2017 Awesome!

Vegan on a budget

Eating healthy can be a challenge especially if you are on a budget. If your family is not on board with you about not eating meat, sometimes you will be forced to cook double meals.

What I usually do is try to cook thing, that I can eat as well as the rest of my family.

Brown rice, whole-grain pasta, beans are a great source of good carbohydrates.

Potatoes are also a great source of protein, they are sodium free, cholesterol free, and fat-free. There are currently seven types for you to choose from ( russet, red, white, yellow,blue/purple, fingerling and petite).

Leaf greens (Kale,Collard Greens, Turnip Greens, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Mustard Greens, Broccoli, and Red and Green Leaf as well as Romaine Lettuce) might help change the boring salad bowl. They have vitamin as well as being antioxidant.

You can also shop at your  local supermarket or even the Dollar Store when you want something quick and easy to fix for a snack or lunch.

You may also try the Morning Star Farm Products they are excellent (for those who want to make the transition from meat to non-meat).

“Eating right and eating healthy is the right choice in life.”

Thank you,

Feed Back!

This was how my blog looked when I started back in 2009.

 

One thing out of the many, that makes me really happy is when my fellow bloggers/readers leave me feedback.

It makes my writing have value. Now, I do know sometimes, what I may say or write may make sense to some, if not all. Yet, the idea of someone actually taking the time to read what I have written and comment on my article, flip, is very special to me.

Many Bloggers, do not take the time to say, thank you.

Thank you………

This makes me very humble and gives me the motivation to write.

So if you are reading my tweets, or looking at my post in Facebook, or G+ or even if you see what I have flipped in “Azul”.

Thank you.

I will see you tomorrow…….
