1. Love yourself most of all. By accepting yourself, you can accept and love others.
2. Surround yourself with those that share the same values as you do about friendship. You get to pick your friends so pick the ones that lift you up and others. Don't let the negativity of others bring you down.
3. Learn to accept love in the package it comes in. You may have never thought of a partner of a different race but you could be missing on the greatest love of your life. Plus you would miss the education of seeing the world thru the eyes of someone different than you that you love. It's amazing!
4. Learn to speak your mind. Better to share your opinion early than let it fester and you blow up! Minimize the damage and be honest.
5. See others as teachers. They all have a different perspective and can provide you with great insights. Remember, everyone you meet knows something you don't.
6. Don't be afraid to show your true colors. Individuality is in and admired. Make your statement but be prepared to explain it. Be sure it relates to the profession you seek. No embarrassing pics on Facebook that will haunt you later.
7. You will make bad choices. We've all done it. Learn from them and better yourself but don't beat yourself up! Apologize and move on!
8. Create a starting point. Rich or poor, you need a plan and a course of action. You can't reach a goal unless you have one to shoot far.
9. Be your authentic self. Honesty and being genuine will win you over the competition every time!
10. You need to dress for success. If you have an important job, dress the part. However, if you deal with regular people, you should dress as they do to build camaraderie.

Before leaving for vacation, make sure you inspect your home
Did you know: an 8 inch crack in your pipes can spew up to 250 gallons of water a day?1
Tips to protect your home while you are away:
■■ Turn off the water supply to individual fixtures like your washing machine, icemaker, toilets, and sinks. Flooding often occurs when hoses are worn or ruptured, or there is a leak at the connection.
■■ Use storm surge protectors on high-end electronics in case bad weather leads to flooding or fire.
Establish safety rules for the swimming pool and surrounding area
Did you know: more than 200 children younger than 15 years old drowned in a swimming pool or spa between Memorial Day and Labor Day in 2013?
Tips to keep your kids safe by the pool:
■■ Never leave children unsupervised around water, even if they know how to swim.
■■ Enclose the pool on all sides with a self-locking, self-closing fence with vertical bars. Openings in the fence should be no more than four inches wide.
Take safety precautions before you fire up the grill
Did you know: June and July are the peak months for barbecue fires?
Tips to prevent a grill fire:
■■ Place the grill outdoors and away from the house, deck, overhead branches and anything else that may catch fire. Make sure you also clean and remove any grease or fat buildup on the grill.
■■ If the flame goes out on your propane grill while cooking, turn off the grill and the gas. Wait 15 minutes before you relight to provide time for the propane to dissipate to avoid a gas explosion.
