OBAL 030: Create a Badass Resume That Gets you That Dream Job!
<p>If you recall our discussion back in March about Job Search Strategies that Really Work (OBAL 012), we began with the importance of a resume. Resumes are so important that we wanted to dedicate this episode to make sure your resume is Badass! A resume is your calling card to everything that you have done professionally. Careful consideration must go into telling your story. A poorly developed resume will get you a one-way ticket to the recycle bin and you don’t want that!</p> <p>An employer, in today’s work environment, is going to easily get a stack of resumes for each position they are hiring for. Your time to shine begins when the reviewer moves the resume above yours and ends when they have decided to keep or recycle your resume. We are here to help you maximize this time with our six essential elements to creating a Badass Resume!</p> <p>The first element is Formatting. I know boring right? There are expectations for what information an employer is looking for and formatting your resume to present your information in the most optimal way is always key. I have seen some drab and boring resumes in my past but I have also seen some amazing ones. The formatting was one of the major differences. Consider the following when you are formatting your resume:</p> <p> Contact info – the worst thing you can do is to give a potential employer bad info. You are guaranteeing that you will not get the job. Make sure you have the right phone number, e-mail and social media credentials on your resume.<br /> Length – More than likely your first page is going to be the only thing they look at when they are making their initial decision. Make sure you have the good stuff viewable on that page.<br /> Order – A presumed order for a resume is your contact info, objective, experience, certifications and awards, and then references. Anything outside of this is atypical.<br /> Structure – Presentation is key and a proper structure makes the resume present well. Utilize indents, bullets and font characteristics to assist the reviewer in digesting your resume.</p> <p>The second element is Customization. If you are truly looking for your dream job, then it’s likely going to be different that you’re current job or those in your past. An effective strategy to finding your dream job is to apply to different type of jobs, all utilizing your awesome skills. However, to stand out amongst the other applicants, you need to customize your resume to speak to that job. Customization involves the following:</p> <p> Tailored experience– You will want to personalize your experience to best sell how your experience shows your strengths for this particular position.<br /> Modify your objective - more than likely you will want to modify your object to speak to the needs of the position you are applying for.<br /> Re-organize you experience – The position you are applying for could change your emphasis on the order of your experiences. You should always consider showing the most relevant one first.<br /> Title-smithing – A simple change to your job title can make the difference.<br /> Match the job description –You are staring right at it. They spent time putting that job description together. Milk it for everything to make your resume stand out.</p> <p>The third element is a Badass Objective. Your objective is your elevator speech. You have the reviewer’s attention for a short moment. Your objective needs to be concise but meaningful and leave them wanting to read the rest of your resume. Four major hurdles that you need to avoid are:</p> <p> Vague – Don’t get lazy on me. A vague objective does nothing for you. Customize it along with your resume.<br /> Listing your responsibilities – The objective is not the time to list what your responsibilities are. Instead focus on the impacts that you will have due to your experience.<br /> Too self-focused – You need to put the reviewer in the mindset of you as an employee of their company,

OBAL 029: Marco….Making Pool Time Fun with Some Different Ideas!
<p>It’s the middle of July right now and I feel safe saying it is hot everywhere! I am sure we have most of you beaten in temperature, as we live in Phoenix. However I have lived back east when I was a kid and can appreciate the effect that the extreme humidity can have on your comfort level.</p> <p>As a way to combat the heat, many of us resort to swimming pools to cool us off. Be it your own pool, your community pool or your friend’s pool they all feel equally refreshing in the summer heat. With two boys, just having a pool isn’t entertaining enough. They must engage in some game or competition to keep their interest in the pool. I remember all the old stalwarts of pool games like Marco polo, tag, chicken, diving for stuff. However these are boring in their eyes. Thank you again XBOX!</p> <p>To solve this issue, I do what every parent does when they are looking for something new. I Googled it. After wading through some of the same stuff I just mentioned, I found a group of games that were very fun and entertaining. So, here is our list of six different pool games that you can try to make pool time fun.</p> <p>Before we get into the games, we want to give you a tool to help with picking teams. This is very helpful if you plan on using these games for a pool party. Breaking down the cliques and making sure everybody has fun is just as important. A good tool to use is the following:</p> <p> Purchase beach balls matching the amount of people expected for the party.<br /> If you can, get different colors to match the amount of teams you want.<br /> Prior to the party, write each person’s name on the beach balls. If you are hosting a party for your kid then have them participate in the team selections making sure to keep them equal as possible.<br /> Inflate the beach balls and place them in your pool. As an ice breaker to the party, guests need to find their beach ball which will tell them the team they are on.</p> <p>Hopefully this will help with the teams. Now let’s talk games!</p> <p>The first game is called Categories. I actually participated in this one last summer with Dakota’s little league team. It goes by colors as well but the general premise is this:</p> <p> The category needs to be selected to start the game. It can be changed each time the game starts. For the purpose of this discussion we will stick with colors.<br /> All participants line up in the pool on one side of the pool. Preferably you want them facing the long part of your pool.<br /> Then designate a catcher. This person gets out of the pool and turns, facing away from the pool.<br /> The catcher then asks the other swimmers if they have picked their color.<br /> The other swimmers need to respond yes.<br /> The catcher then begins yelling out different colors. Once the color that any of the swimmers have chosen is yelled out, they then must try and swim across the pool.<br /> The catcher, upon hearing the swimmers swimming can then turn around and jump in. The goal is to tag them before they get to the other side.<br /> Those that are tagged are out until all but one of the swimmers is left.<br /> Then the next round begins, repeating the process until there is one remaining swimmer.</p> <p>The second game is called Tennis Ball Scramble. This one actually sounded real fun. In order to play this, you will need two hoola-hoops and a bunch of old tennis balls. Any type of ball will work, but what else are you using old tennis balls for? This is a team game so you will need to divide up your swimmers. The game goes like this:</p> <p> Place two hoola-hoops in the middle of the pool.<br /> Then split the tennis balls evenly between the two hoola-hoops.<br /> Each team will need a bucket to hold their recovered tennis balls.<br /> Upon starting, one team member from each team swims out to their hoola hoop and recovers one ball and brings it back to their bucket.<br /> Once the tennis ball has been placed in the bucket the second team member goe...

OBAL 028: Let’s Make a Deal! Tips on How Negotiating Can Save You Money.
<p>We have talked over the last few months about different ways to save money. Our discussions have ranged from budgeting to saving on groceries. In thinking about our discussion today, I wanted to talk about a different aspect that many overlook. As consumers we naturally want a deal, but sometimes we believe the price printed on the tag is the price that we must pay.</p> <p>However you should consider whether or not that is a truly accurate statement. You can negotiate pricing anywhere. So let’s begin talking about the five tips on how negotiating can save you money.</p> <p>The first tip is to know Where Negotiating Works. As we briefly discussed, negotiating won’t work everywhere. It will work at establishments that have sales people that work on commission and driven by quotas. Negotiating works best at these types of businesses:</p> <p> Construction/ maintenance – This covers your yard maintenance and construction projects in and around your house. They are hungry for work and you should get a deal that you are comfortable with.<br /> Car Dealerships – It is amazing how much you can save if you are persistent enough.<br /> Appliance/ Furniture Dealers – The larger purchases typically have more wiggle room as you buy more.<br /> Flea markets/ Farmers Markets – If you haven’t been to these, you need to go.</p> <p>The second tip is to Know Your Price Point. Once you have an idea of what you want to buy, you need to be prepared for how much their asking price is going to be and how close that is to what you want to spend. The best resources to do your research before you begin negotiating are:</p> <p> The internet – this is the obvious one. It is also the most powerful. Depending on what you are trying to buy, you will be able to find out how much your product or service should cost if you bought it from somebody else. What you find however isn’t necessarily the lowest you can get.<br /> Quotes – Getting competing quotes from multiple vendors/ companies is a great way to make them feel they are competing for your business. The gamification of winning your business can be to your advantage.<br /> Advertisements/sales – Most companies are keeping up with their competition’s pricing. You will find that time to time you can use a sale price to get the other company to do better.<br /> Referrals/ word of mouth - If you know someone who has purchased a similar product or service recently, discover what their process and research discovered. This shouldn’t replace your own research though!</p> <p>The third tip is to Be Prepared for Hidden Costs. Car dealerships are the worst at this. If you aren’t careful, you may be negotiating down one price while they are in turn increasing another cost that you will have to pay anyways. Hidden costs need to be research just as thoroughly as the price of the product or service. Hidden costs that typically go unnoticed until it is too late area:</p> <p> Free trials – The trick here is that you have committed to the service, but the first 30 or 90 days are free. What they don’t explain is that after the trial period, your credit card is charged for the reoccurring monthly fee. You have to go through a process to stop this. It doesn’t stop on its own.<br /> Warranties – I am not saying that warranties or extended warranties are bad. However you need to be prepared for the question and the associated cost prior to them asking. Do you really need to spend $30 for a two-year warranty on a DVD player that you paid $50 for? No! However, they will ask you.<br /> OnStar/ Sirius – When you purchase a car now, they have made deals with some companies to preload your vehicle with their product. You typically get it free to try it out, but make sure you will actually use it before you start paying for it.<br /> Delivery charges – I have found that occasionally the discrepancy of delivery charges between two companies could change by decision.</p> <p>The fourth tip is to Let Them Set the Price First...

OBAL 027: Parents’ Call of Duty: How to Manage Video Games with Your Kids!
<p>Tracie and I both grew up with video games. In fact, our generation experienced the birth of video games. Do you remember the pong game? Who knew you could have so much fun with two lines and a dot. The magic was in the ability to move them on our televisions. Never before had there been that level of interaction. Then fast forward to computers like the Commodore 64 and the early IBM models that gave provided the power of the arcades without having to leave the house. Atari, SEGA, Nintendo, Nintendo 64, SEGA Genesis…the list goes on. Who better to parent today’s generation of gamers than us right?</p> <p>Not so fast. Have you seen what today’s video games are like? They are graphic in nature; look as real as watching a movie and the speed is amazing. There is a fine line in what you feel is appropriate for your kids to see and this line is going to be different for every parent. However, there is a line and as parents, it is your Call of Duty to make sure you engage through video games with your kids. As parents of two avid video gamers, we want to share our five goals to keep our kids video gaming under control.</p> <p>The first goal is Priorities. Our boys are well versed in their priorities and can list them out when requested. Setting priorities before you have a gamer is easier but requires constant reinforcement. Converting an avid gamer takes more persistent and may require some “cold-turkey” moments. Priorities will vary between houses, however our boys’ priorities in order are:</p> <p> School – They must go to school. Odd that we have to clarify that but it happens. School is their job and they have a responsibility to learn.<br /> School work – Any homework, projects and daily reading needs to be completed prior to any gaming.<br /> Chores – They have a daily list of chores that must be tended to. Ignoring these chores will result in gaming restrictions.<br /> Sports/ Activities – Commitments to a sports team or other activities will always take precedence over gaming.<br /> Family Events – These are not optional. This includes everyday events like dinner to birthdays and parties.<br /> Sleep – As we talked in an earlier episode, kids need sufficient sleep. Lack of sleep due to gaming is not acceptable.<br /> Gaming – Bottom priority. If everything above is considered and handled, then they can play their video games.</p> <p>The second goal is Game Selection. There are a lot of different games out there. Each game is going to have elements that you like and dislike. The system that your kids have will also drive which games they can get. I tend to separate the games into four groups:</p> <p> Family Friendly – This would be the fun interactive games with a cute little cartoon animal that jumps around or the dancing games that are actually a great workout. These are not even on my radar. If the kids want to play these, let them.<br /> Shooters – Now we are getting graphic. You can have blood, guts limbs falling off, people dying all wrapped up into one fun game. Game play within the shooter games can vary as well. A typical game will have an offline campaign as well as an online multi-player match.<br /> Sports Games – Every sport out there has a game designed after it, even fishing! This type of game may actually pique you kid’s interest in the game and actually help them understand the positions, plays and terminology better. The only concern here focuses on our third goal, so I will wait until then.<br /> Violent Games – You might say that the shooters are violent and you would be correct. However there is another group of games that takes the violence to a potential unhealthy place. The star of this group is GTA. Portions of this game are unacceptable because they include shooting people in a free-roam environment without any objectives.</p> <p>The third goal is Online Interaction. As mentioned before, most games have two modes, offline and online. One of the cool features with online gaming is the a...

OBAL 026: Help Wanted! Getting your Teenager a Summer Job.
<p>As summer approaches, your teenager is preparing for a nice lazy ten weeks of sitting on the couch watching movies and playing video games. NOT!!! They are getting dangerously close to adulthood and their level of responsibility is resembling that of a 5th grader. As parents we need to provide a little bit of hard love and get them off that couch and looking for a J.O.B. As it is the end of June, a lot of the typical jobs may be taken. However that doesn’t mean they aren’t out there.</p> <p>A point to discuss quickly as well is that the current job market is pretty rough on teens. In a study released in March of 2014 by Statista.com, the monthly unemployment rate for teenagers in the US dropped from 24% in March of 2013 to 21% in March of 2014. As a comparison to the overall national unemployment, the same time period saw a drop from 7.6% to 6.7%. So the jobs for teenagers are recovering quicker but the overall discrepancy is staggering. That is all the reason more to get our teenagers out there and we are here to help you get started. Today we are going to discuss five strategies to get your teenager a summer job.</p> <p> The first strategy is to Get them Prepared. The first job is always the hardest to stand out from others. Most of the typical employers they are applying to understand this. We talk about the top four items they will need to be prepared.<br /> The second strategy is to Hit the Streets. Time for all the preparation to come to fruition. Teenagers have no idea how hard this is going to be. We have to keep them going.<br /> The third strategy is to Think Outside the Box. The first choices that a teenager is going to gravitate to will be based on their interests. To help our teenagers to think outside the box talk to them about other jobs that they aren't thinking about.<br /> The fourth strategy is to Get their Entrepreneur On. What better time for teenager to create their own business. The opportunities are large and limited only by their imagination. We talk about a few places that they can start with.<br /> The fifth strategy is to Think Beyond This Summer. If your teenager is eating up the entrepreneur work, don’t let it stop once summer is done. Our next generation is going to be led by these young minds as innovators not employee.</p> <p>Be sure to support our podcast by sharing it with others and rating our podcast on iTunes.

OBAL 025: Time to Shine! The First Three Months at a New Job will Make or Break You
<p>If you are starting a new job, odds are you have been really working hard to get to this point. Our series of freedom episodes have been focusing on getting you to this point. First we worked hard to get those search strategies in place that really work (OBAL 012). Then we worked on creating awesome interviewing skills (OBAL 017). Regardless if you are starting a new job or still hustling to get your next job, it is important to discuss how you need to approach the first three months in order to keep that job. It is imperative to realize that you understand that all the hard work is not over. Listen in as we give you four points to focus on that can make this opportunity last.<br /> Five Points to Shine at Your New Job</p> <p> The first point is to Understand the Business. Of course you know something about the company and their business or they wouldn’t have hired you. We are talking about going deeper here.<br /> The second point is to Understand Your Role. This is even more important than understanding the business. How does your role make an impact to what the company does?<br /> The third point is to Understand Your Boss. It would seem to reason that you made an impression with your new boss or you wouldn’t have been hired. Now is the time to make him or her look great.<br /> The fourth point is to Make the Right Impression. You have three months, so make them count. Quickly assess the project(s) you are given and make them shine. Regardless of the project, this needs to be your target.<br /> The fifth and final point is to Ask For Feedback. How will you know that you did well or utterly failed? Asking for feedback is not fun but it will make an impression with your boss.</p> <p>Be sure to support our podcast by sharing it with others and rating our podcast on iTunes.

OBAL 024: Start a Family Tradition with Family Game Night!
<p>Every family has its traditions. We are no exception. One of our traditions is to set aside Sunday nights for our family of four to have some focused fun together. We call it our family game night! This is intentional to allow us to wrap up the weekend and focus on each other before the next week begins. A good thirty to forty minutes before bedtime is a good rule of thumb. Listen in as we breakdown our four keys to a family game night.<br /> Four Keys to a Fun Family Game Night</p> <p> The first key is Schedule it. We don’t just say Sunday nights. In order for this to work you need to write it down where everything else on your family’s schedule goes.<br /> The second key is a Rotating Game Selection. You will get so much more by in if each member of the family gets their choice of a game. It is nearly impossible to satisfy everybody, but that should not be the focus of this time. If the younger kids want to play Chutes and Ladders, then so be it.<br /> The third key is Keep it Fun. These events can go sour quick! As much as everybody wants to win, you have to keep the competitive juices at an even level. If you lose control of it, you are going to have hurt feelings, yelling and ultimately you are going to have to step in and discipline someone, therefore ending family game night.<br /> The fourth and final key is Remove Distractions. This goes for us parents too. Nothing squashes the fun out of game night more than distractions.</p> <p>Be sure to support our podcast by sharing it with others and rating our podcast on iTunes.

OBAL 023: The Badass Bootcamp for Saving Money
<p>In prior podcasts we have discussed budgeting and finances around travel, college savings, etc. We figured it was a good time to have a talk about saving money in the everyday things you do. Who doesn’t like saving money, right? I know we like to. As with everything there is a tradeoff of effort versus savings. Our hope is that the tools we discuss in this podcast, if implemented, will help you save money so that you can do badass stuff that you couldn’t afford before. Join our Badass Boot camp to Saving Money with the four tools that we use in our everyday life.<br /> Four Tools for Saving Money</p> <p> The first tool is the Internet. You can find everything you need on the internet. As far as saving goes, we have our stash of money saving sites and tricks to make our purchases just a little bit cheaper.<br /> The second tool is utilizing a reward credit card. We must first discern that this tool is only effective if you pay off your card monthly. Any rewards you may gain will never be sufficient to offset interest you would have to pay if you kept a balance for more than a month. With that being said the strategy is two-fold.<br /> The third tool is the use of Coupons and Sales. This is where you really have to be careful with the amount of time you invest in comparison to what you can save. To best optimize the savings here, we tend to bundle both sales and coupons.<br /> The fourth and final tool is a Budget Audit. Don’t get scared by this. What we mean by this is reviewing what you are spending money on and truly assessing if the cost is worth it.</p> <p>Be sure to support our podcast by sharing it with others and rating our podcast on iTunes.

OBAL 022: Disciplining Kids Without it Being a Pain in the….!
<p>Nobody likes disciplining kids. That goes without saying.  As parents though, we have a charge to help our kids grow into amazing people and guide them in the ways of right and wrong.  I would have to guess that most people discipline their kids in a similar fashion that their parents did. I can only speak from my experience.</p> <p>The perception of discipline changes with the generations. I remember as a kid that spanking in public was acceptable. Today you would have CPS called on you and probably try and kick your ass. For the record we don’t spank, unless it is their birthday! Disciplining kids should be more about helping them. Listen to our discussion about four constructive methods to disciplining kids without it being a pain in the ass!<br /> Methods for Disciplining Kids</p> <p> The first method is Time Out. This method has deteriorating results with age. That means it works better on the younger kids. As they get older, you will be fighting to get them out of their rooms.<br /> The second method is Finding Collateral. This worked for us for some time. It will be different for each kid and will change as they grow up.<br /> The third method is Consequences. This one will take some effort on your part. So if your kids breaks something that they use, you have to let them live without it. Don’t go replace it immediately. Seems easy right?<br /> The fourth and final method is Grounding. This is the big one in our house. Grounding is the big house. If the kids do something that is beyond small stuff, they will be grounded. I like to give the analogy of professional athletes. When they get arrested for a DUI they are first punished by the local authorities. Once that is resolved, they typically get punished by their respective sports league. We are the sports league.</p> <p>Be sure to support our podcast by sharing it with others and rating our podcast on iTunes.
