How to be Smarter: Have you ever heard your boss complain? Maybe not. Have you ever heard your boss’s boss complain? Probably not. What about the CEO of your company? Definitely not. The farther up the chain of command you go, the less you hear complaining because it’s the people with the best attitudes that rise to the top. If you want to be at the top of the chain someday, you won’t get there by complaining.

How to be Prettier: I have professed my love for Bandolino shoes before; they are a great blend of affordability, walk-ability, and style. These are a nice mixture of work-appropriate feminine comfort, and they come in a huge variety of colors (I like the brown/dark brown, wine, and black suede).

How to be (less) Awkward: In general, the boyfriend or girlfriend of the driver gets the front seat on long drives; the exception would be if venturing into unfamiliar territory, and another passenger knows the route or area better.

How to be Smarter: Sometimes we become so afraid of trying something new, we tell ourselves trying something small that is new will build up our confidence to try something big.  But I really believe that it is the act of making that one big change that can give you the courage to not only conquer that task, but conquer your entire “scary list.” Instead of giving yourself bangs and hoping it will give you the confidence to change jobs, change your job and then cut your bangs for the first day of work.

How to be Prettier: Candy-cane stripes: for work and for play.

How to be (less) Awkward: Sometimes when we see people we know very well, we forget to give them a proper greeting, and instead greet them with “did you bring the package I asked you to?” or “why are you wearing that coat?” But everyone, from siblings to boyfriends (maybe especially siblings and boyfriends), deserve a proper greeting before a snappy comment is said.

How to be Smarter: To increase the chances of your wallet being returned if you lose it, have a photograph of a baby in it (Source).

How to be Prettier: Having white teeth is one of the quickest ways to appear more pulled-together and youthful. To help your teeth appear whiter, use a lipstick or lip gloss with blue undertones.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you want to be listened to, think about how your words sound to others. Make them interesting with inflection, clearly spoken with enunciation, and intelligent-sounding with word choice.
