5 Things You Really Need to Know About the FAFSA

By Anthony O'Neal

Parents, do you have a rising or current college student? Have you filled out this year’s FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) yet? You might be thinking, “Nope. We don’t have time to fill out another form,” But trust me, the potential savings are worth making time for. Here’s are five things you need to know about the FAFSA: The FAFSA isn’t as confusing as it sounds. Still wondering what the FAFSA actually is or what it does? It’s pretty simple. Schools use the FAFSA to decide how much money to offer your child for college through student loans and scholarships/grants. Which one of those do we want to avoid? That’s right: student loans! There are a ton of scholarships and grants available. They can come from your child’s school, the government—even local organizations. Every dollar will help your child steer clear of thousands of dollars in debt. The FAFSA is the key to unlocking all those possibilities, as well as the Federal Work Study Program (another great way for your child to earn money in college).

So, why don’t more students complete their FAFSA? Well, there are plenty of myths about the form. Two of the biggest ones are: • “The FAFSA takes too much time to fill out.” No, it doesn’t. It takes less than 30 minutes! • “Not everyone needs to complete it.” Everyone should fill out the FAFSA! There’s no income cut-off to be eligible for aid, and you never know how much you might qualify for unless you try. The FAFSA is easy to find All your child needs to do is go to studentaid.ed.gov, the official FAFSA website. You can find the actual form there, plus plenty of helpful info on different types of aid and how to avoid scams. The FAFSA has a deadline Teens shouldn’t wait until they know where they’re going to college before they fill out the form. The application period opened October 1 and it’s smart to apply as soon as possible. Deadlines vary by state, so head to the FAFSA website to find out your state’s exact requirements. Your child should also check for deadlines on their potential university’s website. The FAFSA follow-up process is simple Once your teen has filled out the FAFSA, they’ll receive an EFC (Expected Family Contribution). It’s an estimate of how much money you and your child can afford to contribute to the college fund. The Federal Student Aid office then sends that number to schools to determine the student’s financial need. Generally, the lower the dollar figure, the more aid the student is eligible for. Next, the school(s) your child applies to will look at his or her FAFSA numbers and send an award letter with details about the aid they can get. Award letters can be tricky, because it’s not always clear whether your child is being offered a scholarship, a grant, or a loan. Read the fine print, and don’t let them sign up for anything until you’re sure they don’t have to pay it back later. Filling out the FAFSA isn’t a one-time deal Your child should fill out the FAFSA every year, even after they’ve already started college. They can keep getting scholarships and grants throughout all four years. What’s not to love about that?

Is Your Email Sending the Right Message? Written by Shirley Taylor I'm sure some of us kick-start the day with a morning jog or a cup of coffee, but when we get to work, one of the first things we do is check our email. This seems an essential step in setting our pace for the rest of the day. Even though it has become an integral part of most people's world, email can sometimes be the most misconstrued form of communication. When you speak face-to-face with someone, different parts of your brain separate into words and 'melody' to understand the intonation, mood, emotion, etc. However, your brain can't do the same when you are reading words on a screen, because often, the underlying messages can get lost or be misinterpreted. This is why, whether you are writing in a personal and professional setting, it's really vital to pay attention to both the words you use and the way those words may be construed by the reader. The more emails you write, you will hopefully start to become wiser and you can chart your own growth. By reflecting on what worked well and what didn't, you will begin to understand how best to express your ideas in a way that the reader understands and gets the best results.

DIFFERENT WAYS OF SAYING THE SAME THING Naturally, our brains register words and phrases differently, and this could in turn set off emotional triggers in the reader. This is why writing in a business context requires careful consideration and effort, in case the words we choose send out the wrong signals and message. Here are some examples of how you can send different messages: "I'm swamped right now. I can't talk." vs. "I'm sorry but I'm busy at the moment. Could we speak tomorrow morning instead?"

POSITIVITY FEEDS PRODUCTIVITY Negative words and undertones may leave a sour taste in your readers' minds, which may take some time to put right. Changing your writing habits and style will take time and effort, but once you've learnt some key rules and tools, the benefits and rewards will be great. You'll save time, you'll save your reader's time, your reader will understand and you'll get the right response, and, perhaps more importantly, you'll cut down all the 'email ping-pong' that goes on right now in many mailboxes! Yes, you know what I mean!

GOOD WRITING SETS YOU APART Learning more about good business writing will help to set you apart, make a great impression, get work done successfully and build a strong business. It will also make you a great asset in any workspace. And the best time to start is now! DECEMBER 7, 2018

Maintaining Balance Between Work & Life

Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Michael_M_DeSafey/1832732

By Michael M DeSafey

22

Managing work related stress, while balancing work and life, is a very slippery slope. Problems pop up all the time! It is one of the realities of working in a professional industry. With the high standards expected from workers in fields such as architecture, design, and environmental protection, stress can easily restrict employees from doing their best. Rules and regulations, especially when it comes to environmental projects, can sometimes make people on edge. It gives them a sort of fear of failure, making their work ethic unstable. Maybe a client is throwing away hard work because they are not satisfied, or maybe they're unrealistically changing everything. In the engineering and construction business frustration levels can skyrocket. And as much as you'd like it to end there, it doesn't. It's hard to maintain a good, healthy lifestyle when your job is stressful. That stress keeps getting heavier and heavier on your shoulders till you feel ready to break! Your job, whether it's the planning or building, is important to the industry as a whole. Don't be the link in the chain that breaks! Here are a few tips to step out from under that heavy burden of work related stress and take back your life.

Tip #1: Breathe

You've probably heard it before, the famous phrase, "Calm down" often comes with an assistant, "Take a deep breath." Maybe you don't believe in that anymore. The whole "calming" backwards countdown is a little childish for your taste. Don't shoot deep breathing down just yet! Deep breathing helps promote a sense of calm, delivering needed oxygen to the brain, and really helping you focus. Plans fall through, deadlines are shortened, equipment breaks down... the list goes on and on. Often when we are stressed it's hard to keep our focus, missing problems that may be right under our noses. It's easy to become overwhelmed in a high-end industry. Breathing is key to maintaining a stress free outlook on those unavoidable problems. Try inhaling for five count and exhaling for five count. You can do more or less if you feel this is insufficient or too much. Take a step back if needed and then reintroduce yourself to the problem.

DECEMBER 7, 2018

Tip #2: Communication

Frustration equals lack of communication. This can lead to all kinds of problems in the industry. Any successful company can tell you, correct communication keeps things running smoothly. When something is really stressing us out, the most insignificant things could make us blow up. We've all had our moments. The problem is when we blow up at other people. Everyone gets hurt when that happens and nothing gets accomplished. You notice someone has made a mistake; maybe they are not following safety protocol, or have misread instructions. Letting them know calmly and asking them to correct their mistake it is the easiest and most effective way to fix the problem. Perhaps you need a different angle on your project, or help deciding the best route to completing it. Don't let your pride get in the way of your job. It's necessary to communicate your problems and to seek help in working them out.

Tip #3: Personal Time

If you're working long hours, or even stressful short ones, be sure to make some time for personal activities. Having a balance between life and work is important to be successful. You shouldn't let work over-complicate your life and vis versa. Often, if there isn't a problem at work there is a problem at home. Learn to relax into your life again. Pick up a hobby or get some exercise to relieve stress. Activities you enjoy can help you to appreciate yourself and all that you can do! Turn off the tv (Unless you've got an important game scheduled, which is understandable) and go outside! Take in nature and relax! Do whatever you find relaxing. And make sure you are eating right and getting enough sleep. These tips will undoubtedly improve your mood and your work ethic. If you mess up ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself, fix the problem, and move on. It's up to you to take that step closer to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling balance between your job and your life.

GENERAL

Q: I want to fi nd a job that is unlike the jobs I’ve been doing for the last 25 years. I have been working for a large hospital in a supportive role, but I want something completely diff erent. It’s been hard to get any companies interested if they aren’t in healthcare. My skills are defi nitely transportable, and I don’t have to work in a giant hospital setting. -Sugar Land, Texas Reader A: Your resume is very focused on healthcare duties. You need to emphasize your skills and abilities more than the hospital where you worked. Because the job you did was not health related, I think you can include more duties and eliminate some of the language in your resume that is so specifi c to healthcare. Good luck. Q: I have always been a very cheerful person, but lately I have felt just the opposite. My company is laying off right before Christmas, and I just can’t quit crying and worrying. Several managers have told me privately that they don’t think that I will lose my job, but it will be a disaster to my family if I do. I think that they will keep me, but I am so depressed and I can’t seem to concentrate. I know I need to act cool at work, but it seems too hard for me right now. What do you recommend? -Houston, Texas Reader

A: I could give you all the cheerful self-help statements in the world, but I think that you are truly depressed and not able to pull yourself out of this situation alone. Perhaps you need to speak with a specialist about this so that you don’t just continue to nose dive. Let others know how you are feeling so that you can get some warm support that makes you feel better. Be sure not to selfprescribe or self-medicate because only a specialist would be able to help you fi nd the best plan for you. Your health is much more important to your family than a paycheck. Q: I have started my own Etsy business, and even though it was a little slow starting out, it has been picking up and improving every week. My problem is that my family doesn’t respect it as a business and constantly interrupts me when I’m designing and creating my projects. Obviously, I have to work hard and for long hours if I want to get anywhere with this. I’m just thankful that there is a platform like that for me, and that I can take advantage of it. How can I convince people that I can’t be disturbed while I’m working, and that it actually is work? My Mom and Dad have been the least supportive

-Rosenberg, Texas Reader A: Congratulations!! I looked up your page and love your work. I think that you have to set boundaries, and I think there are two sure-fi re ways that will get them to cooperate. Number 1, show them your checks. If they understand that you are already making money, they should be impressed. Number 2, get them to help you ship orders, manufacture your products or handle correspondence. Once they see how intensive the work is, they won’t criticize you for the hours you’re working. Good luck! -If you have any questions about interviewing, hiring, or work, I’d love to hear from you.

WORKING VACATIONS:

Jobs in Tourism & Leisure

Royce Rosenhauch knows how to have fun. As a resort activities director, it’s his job to keep guests entertained. “On a given day, I might be setting up anything from bingo night to s’more-making to paddle boats.” Vacation jobs, like Rosenhauch’s, often mix work and play. And for some, the job is their ticket to career happiness.

VACATION JOBS

Source: https://www.bls.gov/careeroutlook/2010/winter/art01.pdf

Vacation-related jobs are as varied as types of vacations themselves. Many vacation jobs are associated with travel, lodging, food, entertainment, or leisure. Flight attendants, bus drivers, and other transportation workers help people get to their destinations. Travel agents arrange vacations. Bellhops, front desk personnel, housekeeping staff, and others provide accommodations in resorts, hotels, and other lodging places. Landscaping and groundskeeping workers create and maintain idyllic outdoor settings. And cooks, servers, and bartenders, are among the food service workers providing vacationers with food and drink. Together, these occupations provide many opportunities—and many have few requirements for workers who are new to the jobs. In certain settings, almost any occupation can be a vacation job. For example, electricians are needed aboard cruise ships to ensure that the boat’s electrical system works. Retail workers sell souvenirs to tourists. And accountants help resorts balance their books.

However, some occupations focus primarily on vacations. This section takes a closer look at four jobs specific to entertainment and cruise7,ship musician, destination marDECEMBER 2018 46leisure:

keting manager, resort activities director, and river rafting guide. Workers in each of these occupations help vacationers enjoy their leisure time. And see the box on page 5 for a brief description of work in the relatively new, but increasingly common, field of sustainable tourism.

CRUISE SHIP MUSICIAN

People who are on vacation like to be entertained. That’s why cruise ships offer musical entertainment ranging from Broadway productions to top-40 bands. And many types of musicians provide this entertainment. Most cruise ships have an orchestra or show band, as well as a variety of other group performers or soloists, such as piano bar entertainers and lounge musicians. Ships typically have several lounges, each featuring a different type of music. One lounge may feature a classical string quartet; another may offer the syncopated sounds of a jazz trio. “There are so many different music positions on board ships,” says Dave Hahn, a keyboardist who has had several cruise ship jobs. His first job was in the show band, where he performed at welcome receptions and as the backup for all main stage performances. In his position, Hahn would work about 10 to 20 hours a week, mostly in the evenings. “We would do about four or five sets a night, six nights a week,” he says. Many of the musical offerings aboard cruise ships are at night, but when the ship is at sea, musicians sometimes play during the day. Musicians also attend rehearsals, although they should be ready to play with little preparation. Cruise ship musicians often have other responsibilities besides practicing and per-

forming. “When you’re not playing your instrument, you’re like a crew member,” says Hahn. This means that musicians are required to take part in the regular safety drills required of crew members, such as lifeboat drills. It can also mean living in crew quarters, often with a roommate.

Musician jobs vary considerably. In his second job on a ship, Hahn was hired as a guest performer. “I was kind of like a performing passenger,” says Hahn. He performed about 5 hours a week, stayed in a passenger cabin, and didn’t participate in safety drills. Cruise line musicians usually work under a contract, which stipulates the duration of the job, pay, and other benefits. Most contracts last between 3 and 6 months. Many musicians are on cruise lines for a limited time. “People tend to work between 6 months and 3 years,” says Hahn, “although there are a few lifers.” The fact that musicians must live aboard the ship is one reason why careers are short. “You don’t ever leave work. You’re always there,” says Hahn. Cruise ships also have rigid rules and regulations. That’s something musicians don’t encounter in other jobs, and some feel inhibited by the lack of freedom. “Cruise ship musicians often have problems with the structure,” says23Hahn. although constant travel VOL.

Sometimes, destination marketing managers participate in the vacation activities that they write about. “Last weekend I went to a play in Spokane, and I wrote about that in our blog,” says Ide. She is occasionally invited to events, but mostly she uses personal time to visit area attractions.

can be great in the short term, many prefer more stability in the long term. But these musicians also have a lot of free time, especially when the ship is in port. During this time, they are free to leave the ship and enjoy the locale. “The ships follow beautiful places and beautiful weather,” says Hahn. “Every day we’d go to some gorgeous place.”

DESTINATION MARKETING MANAGER

In planning a vacation, or in planning what to do while on vacation, you’ve probably encountered the work of destination marketing managers. These workers promote vacation spots or attractions to tourists and other visitors. They work for a variety of employers, including visitors’ and convention bureaus, State tourism agencies, and marketing firms. And they have a variety of job titles, including tourism marketing managers and destination marketing coordinators. Destination marketing managers draw people to a destination in several ways. They start by identifying possible market groups for their destination, which may include everyone from local families to international travelers. They then develop a plan to reach those groups within a specific budget, targeting them through promotional materials—such as newspaper ads, visitors’ guides, and television commercials—and they often oversee the creation of these materials. Lilly Kelly works as a destination marketing manager for the Anchorage, Alaska, visitors’ bureau. “We advertise at the local, national, and international levels to draw people to Alaska,” she says. Many visitors’ bureaus, including the Anchorage one, publish official guides for tourists. These guides usually include information about local restaurants and entertainment, as well as audience-specific resources, such as guides for budget-conscious travelers. To create these materials, destination marketing managers work with advertising agencies, photographers, graphic designers, and others. Destination marketing managers also work with the local businesses that are members of the visitors’ bureau and are featured in its publications. The job tasks of a destination marketing manager vary by the size of the visitors’ bureau and by individual position. Teresa Ide works for the Spokane, Washington, visitors’ bureau. Her job involves managing social media, such as Twitter and Facebook. “I post to the Visit Spokane fan page on Facebook once or twice a day, I tweet about five times a day, and I blog for our Web page,” she says in describing some of her activities. Some of Ide’s messages promote Spokane itself; others are about some of the 600 hotels, bars, and other

VOL. 23 ISSUE 1170

businesses that are members of the visitors’ bureau. Still others are conversational. “In a post, I might ask questions like, ‘What are you doing tonight in Spokane?’” she says. Fans then reply, listing their activities, and these interactions serve as indirect advertising for the locations and attractions the marketing manager represents. E-newsletters are another way that destination marketing managers promote their locales. “Whenever we go to trade shows or have visitors come into our visitors’ information center, we have people fill out a form to get on our mailing list,” says Ide. People sign up to receive emails on different topics, such as food or art, depending on their interest. An e-newsletter on the outdoors, for example, might feature short stories about picking apples at local orchards or cross-country skiing. “It’s challenging always coming up with new ideas,” says Ide, “but it’s fun.” Communication is a big part of destination marketing managers’ job—and not just talking to others, which they do a lot. “Between the print publications, our Web site, and email, I do a lot of writing,” says Kelly.

The work of destination marketing managers is similar to that of other marketing managers; however, there are nuances unique to the travel and tourism industry that set it apart. One difference stems from the products being marketed: namely, a vacation destination and its numerous options for fun and leisure. “I get to write about different, exciting things,” says Ide. “I’m always researching what’s current and the latest fad.”

RESORT ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR

Vacation resorts exist nationwide, and most offer a wide range of activities for their guests to enjoy. A ski resort, for example, might offer after-ski activities such as ice skating or wine tastings. A beach resort might organize cookouts, water sports, or luaus. The person in charge of these offerings is the resort activities director. Activities directors either lead activities themselves or oversee the work of others who run them. Royce Rosenhauch is an activities director at a ranch resort in Canton, Texas. There are four facets to his work. “I do activity, event, Web, and brochure development,” he says. “The last two are very important because otherwise, no one knows about the first two.” Activities directors might put together a calendar of events and schedule of activities, which are usually posted on the resort’s Web site. They also help to create brochures for distribution. Other promotional materials, such as newspaper or magazine advertisements, may also be created under the activities director’s supervision. When planning events, activities directors consider the interests of their clients. Some activities directors develop programs specifically for children, for example; this is true of Rosenhauch, who welcomes many guests to the resort for family reunions. Activities directors usually offer a variety of recreational options—including some that involve less strenuous fun. “Almost anything you’d have in a physical education class can be an activity,” says Rosenhauch, “but I’m working on a cooking show because some of our guests don’t want to do something physical.” Music and skits are among the other activities he helps to organize; sometimes, he performs in the skits himself. Rosenhauch is especially involved in developing new ideas for activities because his resort is fairly new. Other activities directors oversee well-established or recurring programs and events. Often, these events play a larger, Continued on DECEMBER 7,page 201850 47

promotional role for the resort. Well-attended events can serve as an attraction themselves, bringing in more people and stimulating new business. Last summer, for example, Rosenhauch organized a fishing tournament, which helped draw more people to the resort.

But a key part of any guide’s job is making sure that clients are enjoying themselves. “One of the best parts is seeing people experience a trip down the river for the first time,” says Wixom. “We’re out there all the time, so it’s like our own little playground, but they’ve never seen it before. I love seeing their excitement and seeing the change that comes over them. It really can change their lives, and that’s cool to see.”

IS A VACATION CAREER FOR YOU?

RIVER RAFTING GUIDE

Adventure travel is a popular vacation choice for some. River rafting guides lead clients on single- or multi-day whitewater rafting adventures. When leading people down a river, guides experience—just as their clients do—the thrill of the rapids and the beauty of their surroundings. “It’s great to be in these incredible places,” says river rafting guide Kamron Wixom. Wixom works on the Colorado River as it runs through the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Navigating the river is a big part of guides’ job, but it’s not the only one. Preparing for a trip is among their first tasks. “We load up a truck with ice, coolers, food, oars, paddles, spare motors, rubber rafts, and frames,” says Wixom. “Then we bring it to the ‘put in,’ where we unload, assemble the rafts, and strap everything in.” River rafting guides are responsible for the safety of their clients, so they must be sure to have life vests and other safety equipment on board. When the clients arrive, guides talk to them about safety and what to expect on the river. Depending on the clients’ rafting experience, guides might seek extra whitewater excitement or traverse through calmer waters. Guides also give environmental talks about an area’s geology and the flora and fauna around the river. They might discuss the history of an area or engage clients in other ways. “Talking and exchanging stories is a really important part of the trip,” says Wixom. Sharing information adds to a trip’s value, often creating lasting memories for clients and guides alike. River rafting guides’ jobs vary, depending on the length of the trips they lead and on their employer. Some guides, for example, take multiple short trips in a single day. Wixom usually works overnight trips, staying out for 10 or more days at a time. On these extended trips, he helps to set up campsites and prepare meals. Other guides might also work off-river, helping to manage equipment rentals or to make reservations for trips.

People doing vacation work say that it’s often fun and dynamic: The jobs are associated with enjoyable activities, and workers interact with an ever-changing clientele as vacationers come and go. “Every day is different, every day holds something new,” says destination marketing manager Lilly Kelly. Teresa Ide agrees. “I’m not one who likes to do the same thing over and over again,” she says. “The best part is that everything is always changing.” Many vacation workers enjoy meeting new and interesting people, whether they’re colleagues, vacationers, or local residents. “The camaraderie between the guides is fun,” says Wixom. Hahn adds, “I got to meet people that I never would have had a chance to meet and to learn about cultures that I never would have known about.”

working at all, during others. Vacations aren’t always perfect, but vacation workers strive to make them seem that way. Workers who deal directly with vacationers need to be extroverted and upbeat. “People like to see enthusiasm, because they’re on vacation,” says Rosenhauch. Remaining cheerful all the time is sometimes challenging, says Wixom, but that’s where workers’ traits can help: “Having a personality that’s fun and entertaining, and that can remain that way even during difficult times, is important.” But good customer service can’t fix everything. “Bad weather can be a challenge,” says Rosenhauch. “You always have to have a backup plan.” Despite its occasional pitfalls, however, vacation work has at least one advantage over many other types of jobs: location. For many of these workers, a vacation career offers the chance not only to be outside of an office but to actually be outside. “The best thing about my job is being outdoors,” says Wixom. “I’ll be swimming in a waterfall and think, ‘Man, I’m getting paid for this.’”

Undoubtedly, some of the appeal of vacation work is the chance to see the world and experience vacation destinations firsthand. “The travel is amazing,” says musician Hahn of his jobs aboard cruise ships. “After my first gig, I’d seen 32 countries—the best parts of those countries.” And many times, these workers benefit when they take their own vacations, often receiving discounts for travel, accommodations, or other services. They might also have a better idea about where to go or what to do on vacation, given their experience in the tourism industry. But, says Hahn, it’s not all fun in the sun. For example, the work felt isolating to him at times. “People come and go so much,” he says. “It’s a very transient lifestyle.” In contrast to vacationers, who are relaxing and having fun, vacation workers have many responsibilities. “There’s a lot of potentially backbreaking work,” Wixom says. “It’s not 100 percent glamour.” Some of the jobs require working long days or nonstandard hours to accommodate vacationers’ needs. Also, because people tend to vacation seasonally—such as during the summer—vacation work itself is often seasonal. Workers might be very busy at some times and less busy, or not

SHORT TERM PLANNING

KEEP YOUR EMERGENCY FUND SIMPLE

Dear Dave, My husband and I are completely debt-free, and we’re saving up for our first house. We currently have about $90,000 in savings, and we’d like to buy a home with cash in the next few years. Where should we put our money, so it will work for us while we save more?

Dear Dave,

Aimee

Renee

Dear Aimee,

Dear Renee,

It’s a great feeling when you don’t have any debt hanging over your head, isn’t it? With the path you’re on now, just imagine how incredible it will be in a few years to have a new home and still be debt-free!

Never put your emergency fund into things where volatility and risk are a concern. An emergency fund isn’t an investment; it’s three to six months of expenses set aside to help protect you from the unexpected things life will throw at you. My advice is to keep your emergency fund in something simple—like a money market account where there’s no penalty for early withdrawal and check writing privileges for easy access.

If I were in your shoes, and maybe looking at a three- to five-year window, I’d just park the cash in a good market account. You won’t make a lot off it, but your money will be safe. Besides, all you’re looking for is a wise place to stash it for a little while. When it comes to long-term investing I’m a big fan of growth stock mutual funds. The problem with that in your situation would be the volatility of the market. By the time you’ve saved up more money, and spent time deciding on a house, the market may be down. It sounds like you two are doing a fantastic job with your finances. Congratulations!

One of my friends suggested that I put my emergency fund money into bonds. What do you think of this idea?

Bond values and prices go down when long-term interest rates rise. Right now, long-term interest rates—a good example would be mortgage rates—are ticking up. So, as this happens, the value of bonds goes down. We’re not looking to make money with an emergency fund, Renee. Think of it as a type of insurance. Just let it sit there, safe and sound, until it’s needed! —Dave
