My Gift to YOU … Shop Responsibly

First – Yes, I am sharing ‘affiliate marketing’ links with you. This means that should you make a purchase, I do receive a small percentage for introducing the link … AT NO additional cost to you.

Holiday shopping has started. There was a story on our local news show about some of rebates you can receive for shopping: all types of stores; clothing; GROCERIES; gifts; electronics; phone/phone accessories; toys. The money can be deposited into your bank account of choice; with some – – as your savings grow – you can use that savings to pay for your purchases. Some may pay you quarterly. Also, some you can link to your Grocery shopper loyalty card and your purchases will automatically be processed – if you purchased an item that you have on your preference list – (example: Weis). Walmart – you can just scan the QR code box at bottom of the receipt.

I suggest that you download the specific extension to your computer – then, when you are looking or even ready to make a purchase – a message will pop up do you want to activate your savings and what your percentage is (example: Rakuten, formerly e-Bates). You will NOT miss an opportunity to save; or, FORGET to set it in motion. During this season – many companies have different specials every day!! So, if you are shopping anyway …. You might as well save!

Personally, I have been using these various links for the past 1½ years. Some of the strictly grocery saving sites will require you to set up your buying preferences – you scan your receipt, or scan the bar code of your product to process you savings.

I will be adding a resources page on my website by years’ in – but, until then – – let the Shopping with SAVINGS begin.

Groceries:

1. IBOTTA – click on this link select you groceries preferences update weekly with new items, ‘hot’ items, or ‘for you’ items.

2. FetchRewards – click here for this offer. (USE my referral code BG8PF at the sign-up screen and you will receive 2,000 FETCH points with your first receipt). You can scan receipts and accumulate points to redeem against various categories.

General Shopping:

3. Rakuten – Click on this for the offers. Recommend that you also download the extension for your computer or laptop, so you always receive the remeinder and won’t miss the rebates offers.

Solar discounting on your electronic invoicing: NO EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED to participate.

4. Arcadia Power – www.arcadiapower.com Please 1st check to see if this is available in your area. Read about the benefits and join. Click here on Referral code link

Again – I am sharing ‘affiliate marketing’ links with you. This means that should you make a purchase, I do receive a small percentage for introducing the link … AT NO additional cost to you.

If you experience any difficulty with these links; or, have any additional questions – please contact me – Gloriajean@CoachingbyGJ.com

Thank YOU!! Shop responsibly!!! …. GJ Brown

“SAY SO by GJ” ~ ‘4 Behavior Styles That Need Coaching’ ~ 21Oct19.

Happy Monday (in mid-October 2019)

Well – here we are. In 90 days, we will be in mid-January 2020. Yes – 2020!! Are you ready for the coming decade? Have you thought about Coaching? Mentoring? What do you need? Why? Are you on track with your goals? Are you working at your optimum pace and enjoying good relations with your co-workers and your family.

Are you working from your strengths? Your strength might be that of self-confidence, taking charge; or, accuracy in analysis of a project; or, exhibting patience and a calm approach to a situation; or, enthusiatic optimism for the your work or family team.

Do you feel that you work more from your weaknesses? Afraid to be wrong and thus do not sharing your opinion. Afraid of social rejection and being left out. Think you will lose control if you let others participate. Or, you fear change and loss of harmony. Therefore, your input is seldom acknowledged or used.

Knowing your behavior style and being coached to work from your strengths; to recognize other’s styles, so you can communicate more effectively … is priceless.

How does the quiet, reserved person speak their mind/share information to the forceful manager? Would the direct, sometimes insensitive person, be received warmly by the humble, patient and calm worker? Is the analyst ignored when they try to share their findings that all may not be well in the organization?

We all bring something to the table. But, we are more willing to share our gifts and talents when we are respected and can feel a level of comrodary within our group; be it at work or at home.

This is why working from your strengths is the better option. But, you have to intermix with other in your space. How to best do this so everyone has a reasonably pleasant experience? By knowing your behavior style and being able to recognize the style of those around you. Short-term coaching is for you!

I have two offers for you: one is to purchase your behavior assessment {4 behavior styles: direct; impact; stabilizing; and careful/correct} and after completion – read your (approximate 20 page) report; and I will provide a 15 minute review via a phone consultation call. *Please use this link or go to my website and click on link to schedule an appointment. Or, feeling the need for accountability and a deeper dive – we can set up a 3-month coaching arrangement. You might want to, also, want to take the time management assessment to determine your level of competence (if in a coaching arrangement – I help you work on your top 3 priority areas that you determine). You will also have a report that gives you an overview of the 12 ‘time’ categories {attitudes, goals, priorities, analyzing, planning, scheduling, interruptions, meetings, written communications, delegation, procrastination, and team time}; shares Key Concepts for each; and, an area to draft your action plan. You will receive a ranking in the one of the 5 levels of time management. Please email me (click here) to get any questions answered regarding Coaching. Let’s make 2020 your best yet!!

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Rest’ (The Thursday BLOG, 18July19, #29/52)

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Rest’ (The Thursday BLOG, 18July19, #29/52)

  • Use SUNDAY as it was intended – A Day of Rest. Disconnect from the electronic world. Worship. Reflect on what is good in your life.
  • Develop a ‘Lifestyle of Rest’: know your goals; do the right tasks; enjoy healthy relationships.
  • Stop hustling on the weekends – enjoy a childhood hobby; get out of the house with your family; let your mind have fun and de-stress.

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Time Management’ (The Thursday BLOG, 11July19, #28/52)

  • 1. Leave room after a task; or, after 30 minutes – to take a break.
  • 2. Build in time for interruptions into your planning. If it does not happen – you have extra time. WIN-WIN.
  • 3. Stop wasting – mindless – time on Social Media. If you are part of meaningful groups: go, interact, and then, move on with your day.

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Swamped? – – – Delegate!’ (The Thursday BLOG, 4July19, #27/52)

“Swamped? … Delegate! (The Thursday BLOG, 4July19, #27/52).

  • 1. The person you delegate should be given not only the responsibility to complete the assignment – but, the AUTHORITY.
  • 2. The goal is complete the task – they may not …and, probably will not…do it the same as you. It is okay.
  • 3. Do – responsibly – check on the progress along the way. There are ways NOT to micromanage! Use them.

ANNOUNCEMENT: I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and fun summer. It is my intention to continue with “The Thursday BLOG” through 2019. BUT, I am in the process of upgrading my offerings ( the daily tips will be ending ). I will be focusing on Instagram [ gloriajean_brown ] and Pinterest [ Coaching by GJ ( look for: Time Management and my photo) ] – please, join me there. There will be less frequent visits to Facebook and LinkedIn – but, I will be making appearances. Thinking of adding a Monthly Commentary “Say So by GJ“.

  1. Make your bed when you exit ‘it’ in the morning.
  2. Wash your dishes/cooking utensils when you have made a meal; note on grocery list -on refrigerator- any food you need to purchase (replace what was used up).
  3. Clear your desk of papers and books and notes and junk, etc. Be ready to sit down and work when you return.
