Six Strategies to Maintain Your Femininity in the World of Business

Jun 29, 2015

If you are a woman in leadership, or own your own business, I’m guessing you have heard something like this before:
“You have to be tough, aggressive, and rigorously competitive. Don’t show weakness or vulnerability. If you do, you’ll instantaneously lose respect. Emotions have no place in business!”

But, if you have ever seen a momma bear protecting her cubs, you know that the feminine force is in no way weak.

Natalie Peace Contributor at Forbes Magazine alludes to this metaphor in her article entitled, “The Awesome Power of Femininity in Business” and goes on to say:

“Visionary women have helped shift the landscape, showing us new models of leadership that include natural feminine qualities like softness, kindness, giving and emoting. Authentic relating has become the focus of many organizations committed to fostering team dynamics where people feel safe and supported in doing their best work.”

Things to Consider in Cultivating Your Authentic Feminine Self in the World of Business:
(These concepts, in great part, are inspired by my mentor and coach extraordinaire, Stacey Martino)

•  You don’t have to be taught HOW to be feminine. The truth is, you know how instinctively. The learning process comes into play in learning how to drop your protective barrier that keeps you from being the natural you.
•  Femininity isn’t about how you look. It’s not about your clothing, hairstyle, make-up or jewelry. Instead, it’s about you are ‘being’, which emanates from the inside.
•  The core quality of femininity is openness. Feminine energy takes it all in, is vulnerable, nurturing, welcoming, energetic, seeks pleasure, able to feel everything and enjoys the ebb and flow of a wide range of emotions.
•  It is a woman’s ultimate power; femininity is NOT a weakness. Just ask Super Woman! She is full of power, yet incredibly feminine.
•  Consider cultivating your femininity in your personal life through dancing, taking bubble baths, listening to music, laughing, burning candles, using potpourri, incense and/or perfume, or putting on your favorite soft or silky outfit.
•  Ask yourself questions like: How open am I on a regular basis on a scale of 1 to 10? In what ways do I shut down to protect myself? How do I pull away, care less and distance myself?

To Keep Your Virgin Hair Extensions From Shedding & Tangling

Jun 11, 2015
It does not matter what vendor you purchase your hair from your virgin hair will shed. If your natural hair can shed of course hair on a track/weft will shed also, it’s normal.

Excessive shedding, thick strands and clumps of hair should not be coming out. To make sure your hair does not shed excessively follow the instructions below.

Do not co-wash hair using shampoo. Use conditioner only. Shampoos are only meant to clean the hair from products and oil build up. The excessive use of shampoo can actually cause hair to dry, harden and frizz up which leads to breakage and shedding.

Do not punch the sew-in needle through the wefts during installation; this leads to increase in shedding and lessens the quality of the hair. If you are getting a sew-in weave, make sure that your stylist sews in the wefts by looping and tying the weave thread under and over the weft.

Keep the use of curling, flat irons, and other excessive use of heating tools to a minimum. The more heat you use on virgin hair – the shorter the lifespan. As with your own natural hair, heat causes breakage and shedding. You can safely use heat when you apply a heat protectant to the hair because it will block the high temperatures and prevent hair breakage. Curling irons are not always necessary for styling. Flexi-rods, perm rollers, and steam roller will set your hair to your perfect desired style without heat. These items can be purchased at your local beauty supply retailer, Walgreens, Target or Walmart stores.

 Wear a satin scarf over your hair at night. A secure satin scarf will keep your hair from snagging, drying out and breaking during your sleep.

 Keep your hands out of your hair.  Playing in your hair causes damage. When you are constantly running your fingers and hands through your hair all the time, yanking, and tugging at the weft. Whether or not you realize it – you are pulling your hair out. Although it may take some getting used to, it’s very important to keep your hands out of your hair.

25 Year Old Solving A Problem with Local Job Fair

Jun 6, 2015

By Connie Alsobrook
Thomas Chastain Jr. is helping to solve a major problem in Rockdale County.  For the 2nd year in a row he has held a job fair to put people back to work. The Job Fair took place on June 3rd at Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 5290 in Rockdale, Georgia.  Rockdale  is the second smallest county in the state of Georgia, with a unemployment rate of 6.4% as of April 2015 and a population of 85,215.

Thomas Chastain

When Chastain was asked why he felt the need to hold such an event he stated, “The county Chairman & CEO Richard Oden said it was not in the county’s budget”. The bright young man did not let lack of finances stop him from helping his community. He started asking companies and individuals for any type of donation they could offer. Chastain had a budget of zero dollars when he hosted the first Annual Job Fair and a budget of $100.00 dollars this go around. Both Job Fairs drew over 300 hundred individuals, this is the number the poll collected, many applicants slipped past the poll and did not log in.

In 2 months his Facebook group, Rockdale Jobs Group, has put 88 Unemployed Rockdale Citizens back to work. (per Facebook page)

Chastain said he had few donors for this event, but the one that is a continuous supporter made a huge impact for both job fairs. Veteran of Foreign Wars (VFW Post 5290) in Rockdale has been the biggest supporter and sponsor. VFW donated their building and equipment to host the event.

The Job Fair brought some big companies out, like Pratt Industries, Future Staffing, Rockdale 911, Rockdale Fire Department, Rockdale Sheriff  Department, Southeast Sealing, and Banner Security to name a few. Pratt Industries and Southeast Sealing had a private area set up due to them hiring applicants of the spot. Former Rockdale Post 2 County Commission JaNice VanNess and current Post 1 county Commission Oz Nesbitt was also in attendance to show support for the event.

Here is the full list of businesses that participated:
Pratt Industries
Banner Security
Southeast Sealing
Carter-young
Primerica
Truss Components
GA Driving Academy
Medic Inc.
Rockdale Sheriff Department
Rockdale Fire Rescue
Rockdale 911 Call Center
Randstad Staffing

Rockdale, Georgia companies and individuals get ready for the next Job Fair because he has already started to prepare for his 3rd Annual Job Fair.
