Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If you have to make a presentation in front of a group of people volunteer to be the first one up as everyone else will be so nervous about their own presentation that they won’t pay attention to yours and will more than likely forget any mistake or stupid thing that you might do.
2. Check for skimmers at gas pumps and other card readers with your phone.
Turn on Bluetooth and search for devices, skimmers often show up as a long string of numbers trying to connect. Crooks usually retrieve the stolen card info with Bluetooth because it can be done discreetly without exposing themselves by opening up the machine to retrieve the device.
3. When lending money to friends and family, don’t consider it a loan.
Give it to them. Consider its gone. With this, consider carefully who your friends and family are. If you are willing to help them, monetarily, realize it is to help them at your own financial expense.
4. When someone steps out of their comfort zone or does an activity they usually avoid, don’t make a big deal out of it.
The extra attention may discourage them from doing it again.
