Do you wear High Heels to work?

Do you wear highheels to work?

I love wearing highheels; there is just something about them that lifts your self-esteem. Now that I see the height of the heels that are in fashion, I think I will stick to the two inch or shorter heels.

It is so interesting that some women appear to sacrifice their health to wearing highheels. When you look at them you know that they are having problems walking in the heels. They prefer to look good and of course sexy legs in a pair of sexy heels always get a second gaze.


On one of my visits to a Bank I had the opportunity to wait in the lobby on the ground floor. You need to climb approximately ten or twelve stairs from the first floor to get to the ground floor.

I was quite amazed to see the number of women who were wearing highheels like the one above to work. These are much more than two inches high. They were quite focus on their walk, and this is understandable, since naturally if they walk too fast there is a chance that they may hurt themselves. I can only imagine their productivity level on the job.

As I continue to observe them walking slowly by I realize that they are already hurting themselves and they did not appear to be too concerned. Imagine being on your feet for seven to eight hours in these highheels.

The amount of pressure we put on the muscles in our calves when we wear the highheels is something we should be concerned about. Research has shown that excessive wearing of highheels results in knee, back and neck problems and long term issues like osteoarthritis. So we suffer for style – sexy legs with sexy shoes.

Here are a few suggestions that may help:

– Avoid wearing very high heels to work, keep them for your social events.

– If you have to wear highheels to work try to rest your legs at intervals. Keep a small stool or box under your desk and remove the shoes and rest your legs.

– You can also use a lower heel to walk around the office.

– Walk about three times a week in your flats for a minimum of thirty minutes.

– Engage in yoga or some stretching exercises so that your frame will be flexible enough to break any fall.
– Massage your legs after removing your heels.

– When you are purchasing your heels ensure that the shoes are not too tight or too big.

– If you are overweight then take action to reduce your weight now. A great way to lose the excess weight is to use a chewable tablet. Trimulean offers you just that – nothing to mix. Fits in your purse and is taken half an hour before meals.
Order a box of trimulean here: title=”http://www.trimulean.com/teamtrini3″>

Not interested in tablets then organic green tea or coffee has also proven to be helpful in losing the extra pounds, and you drink coffee or tea in any case, so you are just changing your brand to a healthier one.
Order your tea or coffee from organogold here:

– Be sure to consume adequate calcium enriched foods to keep your bones strong and healthy. You can also stock up on these calcium enriched foods for use in the office.

I would love to hear your views about highheels at work.

Is the coffee business expanding or are we now more aware of the coffee industry?

I do not know if you realize that Starbucks is now in India. They are all over the world and all the other fast food businesses are now offering coffee as part of their breakfast menu. It is as though the coffee business has expanded overnight and each cup of coffee is money in hand.

Just from seeing Starbucks offering a reward card and you can even get a $5 gift card, you have to know that there is some competition when it comes to including a cup of coffee in your menu.

Imagine if we were getting paid for each cup of coffee purchased by all those people we told about Starbucks or Mc Café or Dunkin Donuts coffee? You would have a profitable work at home business and you would be running all the way to the bank. All credit cards would be settled; as a matter of fact you would now have a debit card with money loaded on it. You would certainly have the new house and what about that car you have been checking out in the showroom?

The next company that is expanding its coffee offerings rapidly via a work at home program is organogold. Organogold has recently entered Japan and Russia. Who do you know in these places? You can rake in some good referral income from each cup of coffee they drink and you do not even have to be there. The list below shows the other countries organogold is in. Best of all everyone who is with organogold and spreads the word about organogold products like their coffee and tea are rewarded with cash.

Yes cash! This has become a tried and true work at home business.

The other interesting point with organogold is that this is not just coffee or tea blends this is the healthy stuff. The content of the various products have been developed to produce a great tasting coffee/tea or hot chocolate with healthy and wealthy benefits.
Review for yourself here: ://www.justhealthy.organogold.com

Are you going to settle for a $5 gift card or from $20 to $150 per referral? This is in addition to the other member benefits. You got to wake up and start getting paid for each cup of coffee that you refer.
Would love to hear your comments.

This is a list of the countries where organogold is being distributed:
The Americas

• Canada
• Dominican Republic
• Ecuador

Sacrificing time for money BP situation

If the Managers or Supervisors of BP Oil really did sacrifice time for money, this is not unique to them. In business you hear and see this happening quite often.

Some of us, love to take short cuts. We are quite aware that the company policy has a prescribed method for doing something, but we realize that if we are able to complete the job another way it would save time and money. So we make the decision. This is probable what happened with BP Oil.

Think about it, as a Manager or Supervisor how many times have you operated outside the box or outside the company’s policies, because you feel you can save time and make more money? If you were at BP Oil what would you have done?

In the heat of the moment the adrenalin is flowing, the customer is there demanding some type of service that is not covered by policy, or the guys are there in the field or on the rig waiting on you to give the go ahead.

Is there time to analyze, to play out various scenarios?
What are your options? What impact your decision will have?
Are their lives involved?
What if your decision is not the right one?
Did the Managers at BP Oil reflect on all this?

Making more money for the company will definitely make you look good, or even finishing the project before the scheduled time. If this turn out well, it may even provide you with a promotion. You can see yourself winning branch of the year or company of the year. What about Project of the year?

Sacrificing time for money does not always work. You may take a short cut and end up with more problems than if you had taken the long way out. We all know this, and I am sure it may have happened to you several times.

Sometimes after you make the decision you recognize that a key part of the transaction was not completed or a process in the project was bypass and this would cause problems with the entire project. So what is more valuable time or money and what was valuable to the Managers of BP Oil?

As a Manager, Supervisor or even if you have your own business it is always good to ensure that when making any decision more so those where you are sacrificing time for money, that you consider all aspects of the situation:

– Explore various options – the what ifs.
– Get feedback – as Managers and Supervisors we do not always have all the answers.
– Review the costs of your decision – financial and non-financial (people/image).
– Is this within your authority?
– Do you have a backup plan?

You must remember that you would be accountable for whatever decision you make as in the case of the BP Oil officers or Managers. You cannot hide once you are the Manager, Supervisor or Business Owner you must be prepared to deal with the consequences of your decisions.

I would love to hear your views about time and money and BP Oil decisions.

What’s wrong with moonlighting?

Moonlighting is having a second job that your boss or the company you work for does not know about. It can be a great work at home job.

IMG_1886

Some organizations are very strict about moonlighting. They are of the view that once you sign their Employment Contract your time on and off the job belongs to them. This can be debatable as the view is that the organization should and does not have control over your personal time, and you should not be involved in any product or service that competes with your primary job, which is why most people opt for a work at home job.

Advantages of Moonlighting

1. Provides additional income which can be used for short and long term goals.

2. Increases your knowledge and networking skills, which may help with your primary job.

3. Provides some sense of emotional satisfaction e.g if you have a hobby which is financially rewarding like some aspect of the music industry.

4. It can be a great work at home job where you can involve your other family members if you choose.

5. Provides a backup if you have to leave your primary job.

Disadvantages of Moonlighting

1. It can be a challenge to balance both jobs.

2. Base on the details of your Employment Contract concerning moonlighting you can lose your primary job if the company finds out about your moonlighting.

3. It can be very time consuming eating away at your personal time for family.

Some known moonlighting jobs:
a. Teacher
b. Coach
c. Music Teacher
d. Part of a Music Band
e. Product Distribution – this is a huge industry that provides good returns and is expanding everyday as more people look for work at home options. This is the best work at home  option you can consider for moonlighting:

There is nothing wrong with moonlighting if you do some proper planning:

 Know why you want a second job.

 Review your company’s policy concerning moonlighting or second jobs.

 Make sure you are not competing with your company’s products or services.

 As much as possible avoid targeting your company’s clients.

 Be discreet about targeting people on the job.

 Plan your time properly so that you have quality time for family.

 Be sure to review your moonlighting job selection properly.

 Once you have selected your second job. Work at it and give it time to blossom.

I would be happy to know your thoughts on this – Email me – joseylifeline@gmail.com after you watch the video.
