Here are 7 great tips for maintaining a professional attitude at work

In this post, we’re going to discuss 7 tips for maintaining a professional attitude at work.  Sometimes, maintaining that attitude at work is very difficult indeed.  While it may be temporarily satisfying to tell someone what you really think in the heat of the moment, it is not necessarily in your best interest to do so. I’ve probably made every single one of these mistakes in my younger years and some of them are pretty cringe-worthy.  I hope that they will save you some of the pain and embarrassment that I went through. 7 Tips for Maintaining a Professional Attitude

18 Things I Learned While Building My Facebook Group

Facebook group

~by Haley Lynn Gray~ . I got the bright idea a couple of years ago to start a Facebook group to help me grow my business. I thought, “Why not? All of the other business coaches are doing it”. I figured I’d do it a bit differently… and march to the beat of my own drummer. Then I got on a webinar a couple of months later, during Sales School with Kendrick Shope. She mentioned that a Facebook group is a great vehicle to grow your business; I was totally hooked.   I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t

Hearing Crickets When You Post on Social Media? Don’t Give Up

don't give up

~by Haley Lynn Gray~ . It feels like it was just yesterday, though it’s actually been a little while, that I first started posting on Facebook and other social media sites and blogs. I remember it all too well. I had this great, if not naive, idea that I’d write fantastic content from my little MBA brain, and people would adore it, and share it, and it would instantly go viral.   Yeah… that didn’t quite go as planned. What really happened? I wrote blog post after blog post, and the same 3 people viewed the blog or commented on

liked by everyone

~by Haley Lynn Gray~ . I think it’s part of being human to want to be loved and liked by everyone. The reality is that not everyone is going to love you, your business, your message, or your hair color.  There will be people who think you’re too pretty, too ugly, too tall, to short, too fat, too thin, too loud, too boisterous, and the list goes on. It doesn’t matter who you are, they will find a reason to not like you. As your success grows, people will start to have more reasons to not like you. They’ll think

My Top Lessons of the Year and My Resolutions

lessons of the year

~by Haley Lynn Gray~ . To say that 2016 was a rough year in my life would be an understatement. My oldest daughter sustained a traumatic brain injury at the very end of 2015, and we had her in and out of the hospital for months this year. Now, 12 months later, she still isn’t completely back to being her normal self. And she isn’t back to school yet, either. She is slowly getting better, but requires a lot more love and attention than your average 18 year old. In July, after I suffered a major health scare, I decided

Let’s All Make the World a Better Place

make the world a better place

~by Haley Lynn Gray~ . This has been a year in which my life was turned upside down…  and back again. I’ve suffered so many losses and so much pain. Yet it’s so much less than what I’m seeing coming out of Aleppo and other countries. We’re coming hot off the heels of an incredibly bitter election in the U.S. Now, we move forward with a president who is controversial to say the least. It would be so very easy to blame him for all of our problems and to expect the government to fix everything for us. Instead, I

My Thanks for a Year of Blessings

blessings

~by Haley Lynn Gray~ . November is inevitably that month every year when people start gratitude journals and make charitable contributions. It’s also that time of year when I look over the previous year and start to count my many blessings. This year has certainly been a year of so many blessings. From my family’s perspective, we’ve seen my oldest daughter continue to steadily recover after a traumatic brain injury last December. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year, but she has made so much progress in that time. I’m so grateful that she is healthy and continues to improve
