How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.


With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

She Believed She Could So She Did - The Power Of Belief

print by Hester To download this print please click here "What you believe has more power than what you dream or wish or hope for. You become what you believe." Oprah Winfrey
Belief is Power. We are what we think. All that we are, arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we  make our world.

There is no other more powerful directing force in human behavior than belief. A belief, delivers a direct command to your nervous system. Beliefs have the power to create and to destroy. So, if you want to achieve happiness in your life,believe in yourself. Stop thinking and believing that you are a product of your past and start acting and behaving like the person you want to be. Remember your brain doesn’t know the difference.

Even if you don't fully believe, act as if you do.Actions speak louder than words. They speak louder than thoughts, too.
