Professionalism: A Little Advice


I was thinking the other day about what it’s like to have a wonderful experience in a store or restaurant as opposed to a not-so-good one.  You know them both well, I’m sure.  One thing that stands out to me, and brings the server a tip to write home to mom about, is professionalism.  When it’s present, service rocks!  Not so much when the server stutters through their greeting, doesn’t know the menu nor how to smile.  There are boat loads of young people out there in the service industry who don’t have a clue what the word means, let alone how to act with it.  So, if you find yourself receiving excellent service while boosting the anemic economy, be thankful.

Not Just for Professionals

Even if you are not in a service “profession”, there should be a certain level of upstanding mannerism coming from your person.  In other words, don’t act like a fool, a tart, a know-it-all, or a bee-otch while talking to your doctor, your child’s teachers, your husband’s boss, or any other service provider you might come in contact with.  Keep your cool, ladies.  This used to be a hard one for me; I was, let’s say, difficult…sometimes.  My body and mental state suffered from it, too.  It’s that stress thing again.

You appreciate when others are accommodating and kind.  Well, how you should act while interacting with people goes without saying.  Understand that you never know who you might meet – what opportunities lie awaiting for you.  Be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Under The Leaves

A few days ago, while raking leaves, my cat loved attacking the rake. I laughed at the amount of joy that Mageara gained from this menial task I needed to finish. I enjoyed the task more because she did. Just as I began to pull in another pile of leaves and the cat jumped at the rake, I took delight in something else! I uncovered little white daisies. They were in full bloom, smiling up at me as if they had the secret to life. I laughed out loud at such a weird find in late fall. And then, of course, I took a picture! Several thoughts came to mind, which I want to share with you.
