2 Ways To Exude Professionalism

Maintaining a sense of professionalism in your workplace is one of the most important aspects of being successful. However, if you do not have any experience in a professional workplace, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Here are two quick tips on how to increase your aura of professionalism.

1. Dress To Impress

It is incredibly helpful to have multiple suits, or other professional outfits, at your disposal. However, owning that many outfits is not easy on your wallet. If you need some help affording some nice clothes, take a look at some local charities or thrift shops to see if you can find some dress clothes for little or no cost. If you buy your clothes at full price, make sure you keep them clean by taking them to be dry cleaned. The press cleaners that dry cleaners use will clean your clothes more effectively than you can at home.

2. Carry Yourself Confidently

Confidence is key if you ever hope to advance your position in your company. If you exude confidence, your superiors will notice, and their respect for you will likely increase. Walk with your head held high, your shoulders back, and always walk with intent. Know exactly where you plan on going and arrive there deliberately. In fact, every action you take should be with express intent and direction. If you look like you know what you are doing, the people around you will assume you know what you are doing, and you will be able to go farther than you would otherwise.

In a professional workplace, one wrong step can cost you months of social progress, so you always need to be aware of how those around you perceive you. Make both your coworkers and superiors realize that you are a hard and efficient worker with how professional you can be.…

Winter Preparation Steps Before Storing Your RV

An RV is one vehicle that receives a solid three-season workout. Driven many miles in the heavy summer heat, from National Parks to KOAs, the motor home is a real vacation workhorse. Winter’s approach means thoughts turn to shutting it down for a few months. Make sure your RV is ready for the next recreation season by taking these steps to prepare it for storage.

Elemental Protection

Before getting to work, decide where you will park your RV. Using a secure boat and RV storage facility, such as boat storage Middleburg, means you do not have to worry about local street-parking laws or vandalism. Wherever you leave your unit, if you can, purchase a heavy-duty cover that fits at least the front end. A cover not only keeps grime at bay, but it prevents sun-damage. It is especially important to cover any rubber parts, especially the tires, since they will harden and crack over the winter.

Interior Cleaning

Do not think of your RV as a storage closet. Empty cupboards and bins of items that will gather dust. In particular, take out liquid containers so that they do not freeze. Empty your refrigerator and clean it out. Any foods or spills will produce smells that will be impossible to remove in the spring. Vacuum the interior to remove rodent-attracting crumbs.

Plumbing and Electrical To-Dos

Water left in the RV will freeze. Drain your water tanks, open all faucets and flush the toilet twice to remove any air in the system. Add RV antifreeze, and push through the lines using a hand pump. Remove the batteries to prevent freezing; store them in a dry location where they can be occasionally trickle-charged.

Winterizing a motor home takes some work, but it is worth the effort. Taking these steps late fall will make transitioning to spring vacation-mode a relatively easy process.…
