Get Your Move On – May is National Moving Month (Part 2)

Posted: April 17th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


As promised, I’m completing my list of helpful hints for  your next moving day.  Revisit yesterday’s list of tips before taking a look at these. Then pull the most relevant ones you think will be most helpful during your next relocation.  

Follow these tips for an organized and efficient moving day

Moving day doesn’t have to be the most dreaded day of the year. Ease into it with preliminary planning.

14. Beer boxes are the best for books because they have handles on the sides - so be sure to hit up your local liquor store.

15. Take a photo of how your electronics are connected so you’ll remember how and where all the wires go.

16. Cut down on boxes by making all of your baskets, laundry bins, hampers, and suitcases work for you - pack them with stuff! Use the wheeled suitcases for heavy things like books.

17. Along with feeding your moving crew, give them first dibs on anything you originally planned to sell or donate - it’s just an extra perk since you won’t be paying them. (more…)

Get Your Move On – May is National Moving Month

Posted: April 16th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


35 million Americans will move this year alone.

Moving day doesn’t have to be the most dreaded day of the year. Ease into it with preliminary planning.

Reduce the chaos of moving day with prior planning and organization. Your “helpers” with be grateful and you’ll save yourself unnecessary stress.

And I think I’ve helped move almost half of them over the years. Okay, a little exaggeration, but it sure feels like it. When you have a truck, have strong organizational skills, and of course own a good pair of gloves, your friends and family come crawling out of the woodwork with promises of pizza and beer as payment for your efforts. I’m so easy I fall for it every time.   

If you’re planning a move this year, join the crowd.

May has been named “National Moving Month” by the BBB, and for good reason. Most families choose May to make the move in order to avoid interrupting school calendars. Singles and couples without kids prefer May so they can settle into their new digs before summer arrives. (more…)

Business Office Administrators – Creating the Best First Impression

Posted: April 14th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


Hiring a dynamic and highly competent office manager is one of the most critical hiring decisions a company can make.

Office administrators determine the personality of a business; hiring the right one is vital to the vibe a company wants to project.

Office administrators provide the “glue” for many businesses, and influence the productivity and morale of their organizations.

 “An office administrator is responsible for anything and everything that can affect the quality of life in the office,” according to Jase Bergen, office manager for an entertainment company in New York City. “If it’s broken, you better fix it — no excuses. You just do it. And when six things break at once, you have to keep your cool and have the presence of mind to figure out what has to be fixed first.”

Business owners look to hire effective and dynamic front office administrators who possess a varied skill set.

Responsible for circulating information throughout an organization, as well as coordinating the efforts of vendors, (more…)

Kids love Legos, parents love Legos and teachers love Legos.

Posted: April 8th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


It’s called constructivist learning, and fortunately for you, you’ve come to the right place.

When you learn how to learn, you can construct an individualized learning method.

Your childhood playtime is the perfect training for successful hands-on learning at IntelliTec and beyond.

It’s what IntelliTec is all about: hands-on, skills based learning where students construct knowledge instead of expecting someone construct it for them. It may have started with Legos, but it ends with your ability to figure things out in classroom, and more importantly, in the world.

Students find more success when they use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to create more knowledge. Once the experiment is complete, it’s time to reflect on and talk about what they are doing and how their understanding is changing. (more…)

Are You Sure You Want to Post That? 10 Simple Common Sense Tips about Social Media

Posted: April 7th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


Take advice from James Franco.

Remember, just because you don’t post pictures of every event or party you go to, it does mean it wasn’t fun or didn’t happen.

Understand what you share on social media gets shared with the world. Don’t give anyone a chance to judge you without your permission.

Not only is he someone who’s been active on social media for many years, he’s also someone who learned the hard way just how anonymous and far-reaching cyber communication can be.  

His recent sharing of photos on Imgur and subsequent conversations invited a host of criticism when it was discovered his exchanges took place with a 17 year-old girl. For a 35 year-old man, “embarrassing” could have been the least of his worries; try potentially career-ending. According to Franco, “What I’ve learned is you don’t know who’s on the other end. I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson.”

Before you post, tweet, like, tag, hashtag, create status updates, or share comments… (more…)

For Love or Money: How to Survive the #1 Relationship Killer

Posted: April 3rd, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


What’s the greatest predictor that your relationship will go bust?

Money may make the world go round, but get off the dizzying emotional merry-go-round with some frank talk about money.

Communicate about money early on in a relationship and avoid the pitfalls of financial arguments down the road.

It’s not problems in the bedroom, secret lovers or conflicts over raising kids. If you want a chance at “till death do us part,” then you better know how to talk about cash.

More couples argue about money than any other topic. If these arguments begin early in a relationship, last longer than other disagreements, and are left unresolved, they will more than likely lead to divorce. And the problem isn’t always about the lack of cash – even wealthy couples have marital issues over finances.

Your best chance of survival is to address these 3 key issues:

1. What does money mean to you?  Some people view it as a means for security and they focus on saving. Others see money as a definition of success and an opportunity to climb up the social ladder. And then there are those who spend it spontaneously and struggle (more…)

The REAL Reason to Get a College Degree

Posted: April 1st, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


Our IntelliTec students overwhelmingly agreed. You want a career versus a job. Why? All you have to do is think back to the worst job you ever had…

Share your worst job ever experience after reading today’s post.

Check out the 10 Worst Jobs Ever and see if yours compares. Read mine then share your own experiences.

It all started over a casual conversation with my twenty-something kids. We one-upped each other with stories about the grossest, filthiest, most demeaning jobs we’ve ever had. I might be a little biased, but I think I won.

Before I begin, let me invite you to join in on this. Post your WORST JOB EVER, and share some of the lowly and disgusting duties you performed all in the name of a paycheck. I’m sure several of you out there can top mine, but here it is anyway.

I was working at the return desk at Kcart (the name has been changed to protect the innocent) when a woman walked in wearing a robe and slippers. (more…)

Do High Schools Prepare You for College and the Real World?

Posted: March 31st, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


No longer can a student depend on his/her high school education as the launch pad for their future.

Do you have the basic skills to make it on your own after high school.

It’s time to empower students with the skills they need before they leave the nest to fly with confidence and determination.

Most current educators, researchers, and successful business entrepreneurs agree: once students leave high school, math, science and English classes are not enough to prepare them for the next phase in life. And unfortunately, there’s no place in today’s curriculum to teach necessary life skills such as:

  • How to write a resume or prepare for a professional interview
  • Balance a checkbook, pay bills or how credit works
  • Read/understand a ballot in order to make an informed voting choice.    

What I discovered was schools and parents failed students when it came to conversations and education about basic survival outside the classroom walls. (more…)

What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up? Choosing the Career for You

Posted: March 25th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


Childhood is the time to dream your life away, not caring about a career, money or job satisfaction. But what about later on, when the constant stream of questions begins about what you want to do with your life?

For many of us, choosing a career can be harder than choosing a partner in life.

We all have to grow up one day. Though you may not become a superhero, you can have a meaningful career if you just give it some thought.

What you’ve learned since is choosing a career is one of the most important decisions of your life. You want to be realistic, practical even, about what you’d like to do, but you also want to enjoy your job. If you’re lucky enough to have a passionate interest, that’s a good place to start exploring your options. People often say, “I knew what I loved to do, I just had to figure out how I could get paid doing it.”

Unclutter the Clutter in your Cluttered Life

Posted: March 24th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


This isn’t a blog about clutter. Well, it kind of is.

Celebrate Spring this year by uncluttering your life.

Spring is more than a breath of fresh air. Decrease the clutter in your life and you’ll find the winds of change create a fresher way of breathing all the time.

It’s really an opportunity to share some thoughts and advice about making room for the onset of spring. If you have space in your life for the offerings of the season’s purpose, rebirth and renewal, you’ll find you see things more clearly. An uncluttered view, if you will.

It all started with my closet. I decided to dedicate an entire afternoon to the purging of unworn/unused clothing and other items. I dove in with a vengeance, and determinedly weeded through EVERYTHING. What I discovered is the more I purged, the more I wanted to purge. The physical release of “stuff” immediately led to a psychological freedom, and I couldn’t get enough of it. By the time I wrapped up, I was equally exhausted and exhilarated. (more…)

It’s Time to Get What You Want out of Life

Posted: March 20th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


Some people always seem to get what they want in life.

Identify your goal(s) and finally get what you really want in life.

“Successful people keep taking action…they make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” –Unknown

They clearly have inside information about what it takes to get ahead. Relationships, jobs, money, you name it; they come out on top. They never even seem to have a bad hair day. Life is seriously unfair.

But believe it or not, there’s no magic dust or genie access granting them their desires. They have a plan and work on it so regularly it almost appears second nature.

If you think it’s time to turn things around, then read on for what are really pretty simple steps to start steering your life in the right direction.

8 Steps to get Everything You Want in Life

1. Realize what you want to accomplish and how – Don’t think what you want “from” life, but think what you want “in” life. Simply putting focus on something can greatly increase its chances in occurring in your life. (more…)

10 Benefits of Becoming a Personal Trainer

Posted: March 18th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


It’s more than a can-do attitude; it’s positive thinking at its best.

Help others help themselves reach their fitness goals while earning money in a career with growing opportunities.

Your energy and positive attitude are just the right combination to build a successful career as a personal trainer.

Some people just have it – that knack for making others feel empowered and capable. They always seem to have an optimistic attitude, share words of encouragement, and believe in our ability to be the best person possible. Even when we’ve lost sight of New Year’s goals to become a better version of ourselves, they still stand beside us, cheering us on as we start anew (again!) Combine these character traits with a passion for health and fitness and you’ve found a new career: Personal Training.

Here’s what to expect when you join the Personal Training industry which increased employment 44% from 2001-2011:

  • A flexible schedule – this isn’t a 9-5 desk job. You may work in a single gym or multiples; even traveling to clients’ homes for sessions. Trainers work with individuals and establish times convenient for everyone.
  • Good pay – this is a career where experience, word-of-mouth and a growing client base really pays off. Results-driven trainers build loyal clients, and those clients spread the word. (more…)

Share your Irish intelligence with your friends after you test yourself with today’s St. Patrick’s Day Quiz.

Today’s a “wearing ’o the green” for most of us. But just how well do you know your Irish facts?

I thought since quiz results could now identify what state you belong in, what color should be your favorite, what animal you most resemble, etc. I’d throw a St. Patrick’s Day Quiz your way. No green beer at the end for the winner, but bragging rights tonight at your favorite pub if you answer 7/10 or 70% correctly.

Scroll down for the answers

1) When – and where — was the world’s first St. Patrick’s Day parade?

a. March 17, 1762, in New York City

b. March 17, 1668, in Dublin, when the city was experiencing a rebirth

c. March 17, 1842, in Canberra, Australia, which has the largest percentage of Irish descendants of any country.

2) True or false? Ireland is among the top 10 hardest-drinking countries in the world. (more…)
