How to be Smarter: Want to network? Invite someone to coffee. It's informal, it means business, and you can do it at anytime of the day.
How to be Prettier: Use ground turkey instead of ground beef in your recipes--its better for you, costs less, and is something new to try. It's a recession--we must make our own fun.
How to be (less) Awkward: Don't be fidgeting all day with your headpiece. If you love wearing headbands but they hurt the area behind your ears, tuck a little bit of hair up under the headband to cushion the senstive skin in that place on your head.
