Weekend Roundup Vol. 9

Well another week comes to a close and that means another edition of the weekend roundup! More tips and links to some of my favorite blog posts from around the blogosphere...

FROM THE DESK OF FLEA
Well I have another semester coming to an end at school and that means final projects due this weekend. Work is killing me as well, I have a project going to functional testing this week and we have had some issues with the software so I have my fingers crossed.

ADMINISTRATIVE STUFF
No news is good news...nothing to report.

My offer to allow folks to guest post here still stands if anyone is interested email me at beasurvivor.blogspot@gmail.com and we'll talk about it.

TIP OF THE WEEK:
Don't panic with all this financial crap going on. Don't panic sell or pull your money out of investments that are sound but are just taking a beating because of market jitters. The market will recover...it always does and history will back me up on that.

Bonus tip:
If you are worried about your money and can't sleep at night then do what you have too just try to take a deep breath and think before doing anything crazy. Now is actually a good time to buy good companies that have sound fundamentals and have just been murdered by panicking Hedge Funds. If you the nervous type just put your money in accounts that are FDIC insured.

Email me a tip and I will post it here and make you famous (we'll not really...but you will get credit!)

WEEKEND ROUNDUP

Trent from the Simple Dollar answers the question, "Will My Money Be Safe?"

5 WAYS TO IMMEDIATELY IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING A RAISE
1.) Show up to work - everyday, even when you have a "cold". (Suck it up)
2.) Show up on time or even better, early to work everyday.
3.) Always be honest with your boss or manager.
4.) Tell you boss or manager what your goals are: promotion, more responsibility, etc.
5.) Do the absolute best you can at whatever task your are assigned and raise warning flags if something is not going right...sooner rather tha later.

Bonus: It does not hurt to show up to work with a smile on your face and a friendly disposition. Grumpy people are often tolerated but they will never go far because they are not viewed as "people persons".

...that is all.
