How Dental Care and Success in Business Are Closely Related

How Small Businesses Should Compete with Big Businesses - Let's Reach Success

This is a guest post by Brian Loman.

These days a person’s dental care can have a huge impact on a person’s ability to get a good job.

There are a lot of different things that you will need to keep in mind about this as you go forward through job interviews and negotiations:

1. Dental Care and Self-Confidence.

The quality of your teeth can have a huge impact on your self-confidence. That in turn can have a big effect on how well you do professionally.

If you aren’t a very self-confident person because you are so sensitive about the way your teeth look, you most likely aren’t going to get the same kinds of job opportunities that others will.

The fact is that those who are self-confident almost always end up getting the better jobs. Studies suggest, this is more important than talent.

2. Importance of Regular Dental Care.

How Your Work Life Can Affect Your Health

You will definitely want to make a point of paying for regular teeth cleanings so you can keep expenses low and preserve the overall quality of your teeth.

Regular dental care can go a long way towards helping you to feel more confident about yourself, which in turn will help you increase your job opportunities.

Those who pay for regular dental care usually have a more successful professional life, according to numerous studies.

3. Funding for Dental Care.

It is important to view the money you spend on dental care as an investment in your health and professional life.

You will find that DentalWorkCash company offers a great way to get the money you need for dental work if you don’t already have it.

Dental work can be very expensive, especially if you don’t have insurance, which is all the more reason to look into this option.

4. Projecting an Attractive Image.

Whether or not you actually want to accept it, the fact is that most people only want to hire someone who projects an attractive overall image.

By spending the necessary time and money on getting the right dental care, you will be able to project a more attractive image for those who interview you for jobs.

If you want to maximize your job opportunities, you will certainly need to make a point of projecting as attractive an image as possible.

5. Statistics Don’t Lie.

Statistically you have less of a chance of getting a job if you have bad teeth. So you will definitely need to keep that in mind.

One of the very best reasons to take care of your teeth is that you will most likely do better for yourself professionally.

There have been numerous studies into the connection between dental care and job opportunities. People with good-looking teeth have an easier time getting hired.

There have actually been quite a few people who have stated that they think they got passed up for a job because of the condition of their teeth. Even some employers have admitted to making decisions on equally qualified applicants based on this particular physical characteristic.

If you want to greatly increase your chances of getting a new job, you will have to make sure to take care of your teeth in a big way.

6. A Professional Image.

The better your teeth are overall, the more professional you are going to look. If you hope to be successful in the business world, you will absolutely need to have a professional look that will impress others.

There are a lot of different things about a person’s physical appearance that can affect their job options/opportunities, and the teeth are definitely one of them. The more you take care of your teeth, the less you will have to worry about being turned down for any jobs.

7. Working with the Public.

Proper dental care is even more important for those who plan to get jobs where they are working with the public on a regular basis.

If your teeth are in very bad condition, it could be even more difficult for you to get a job where you work with the public each day.

Very few companies are willing to hire a person with bad teeth if they are applying for a job where they are going to be interacting with customers every single day.

8. Improved Dental Care Equals More Job Opportunities.

The better your personal and professional dental care is, the more job opportunities you are likely to have. While getting turned down for a job due to bad teeth might not have ever crossed your mind, it is a real possibility to consider. Those who start to take better care of their teeth often notice that getting the jobs they want becomes a lot easier.

Those who don’t think that the quality or frequency of the dental care they receive will want to think twice. A person’s physical appearance has always factored into how easy or difficult it is to get a job, but your teeth are particularly important for a number of reasons.

Whenever you smile your teeth show, and it is very important to smile during a job interview.

These days companies in all sectors and industries have started factoring in the physical appearance of applicants, and part of that means teeth. If you feel as though your teeth could use some improvement, it is time to step up your dental care right away.

Conclusion

One of the best things that you can do for yourself and your professional life is to focus on improving your teeth as much as possible.

Proper dental care can have a hugely positive impact on your ability to get certain jobs throughout your life.

While it’s true that not everyone with bad teeth encounters this problem, it is still important that you make a point of focusing on this issue going forward.

The better your teeth look, the more professional and self-confident you are going to come off as in job interviews and different settings.

How This Family Guy Makes $10,000/Month Online Teaching Others How to Make, Save and Invest Money - Interview with R.J. Weiss from TheWaystoWealth.com

This is an interview-style post with R.J. Weiss from The Ways to Wealth.

Hey R.J. What’s your background and what do you do?

I blog about all things personal finance at The Ways to Wealth.

Before I went full-time into blogging, I spent ten years in the financial services industry. Specifically, helping families buy the right type of life insurance.

During my time with a full-time job, I’ve always had different side hustles going on. From freelance writing, Amazon FBA, conversion rate optimization, to website design — there were many projects I pursued outside of work.

How did you start your career in finance?

I got started in finance straight out of college working for my the family insurance business. As I love the financial planning side of things, I choose to specialize in life insurance planning. This led me down the path to obtaining the CFP® Certification.

What made you start blogging?

The Ways to Wealth, which I started in 2016, has been my 5th blog.

The others mostly fizzled out most due to a lack of interest. But, in 2009 I started a personal finance blog called GenYWealth.com (no longer around) that had some success.

The idea GenYwealth.com was to write about what I was learning about studying to take the CFP®. The blog was, by all means, a success. I was able to gain valuable knowledge, pass the CFP® exam, earn some extra money and build up a good community.

I then took this knowledge and started a business blog, which allowed the insurance agency I was working for to generate leads.

I started The Ways to Wealth because my passion is personal finance–from investing to travel hacking, I love the challenge of optimizing my finances.

How was The Ways to Wealth born?

I didn’t have much of a plan for starting The Ways to Wealth when I purchased the domain name.

I was actually thinking it would be a niche site, which was inspired by Pat Flynn’s niche site duel. Then, I came across the income reports of Michelle Schroeder-Gardner and wisely changed direction to a more traditional blog.

This change came about 6-months after starting to blog.  I did a timeline of the site in one of my income reports.

What worked best when trying to grow the site?

I had a decent knowledge of SEO. So at first, I started growing the site with email outreach. One of the first posts I had about best investing books of all time, had about 15 links to it.

This was nice to start with but was quite slow to build up, as it can take a while to earn Google’s trust.

The big turning point came when I started to understand Pinterest. I spent a few frustrating weeks on the platform, then it finally started paying dividends.

I went from about 100 sessions a day to 1,000, which was huge for me at the time.

How did you get to 3 million monthly viewers on Pinterest?

I lay out my Pinterest strategy here. But at the core the idea is to:

1) Write high-quality content that Pinners want to click through, read, and share.

2) Pin to my own and high-quality group boards, with a keyword-rich description.

3) Continue to Pin my best pins across my own boards/group boards, ruthlessly eliminating Pins that don’t perform well.

One thing to keep in mind is impressions don’t mean much on Pinterest. What counts are clicks to your website. So, you want to design not for impressions but clicks.

What aspects of the online business are you outsourcing or automating and how?

The first thing I outsourced was Pinterest design. I’ll design about 30-40 pins a month, so this was big time saver for me.

Of course, it took some work to get going. At first, I hired 5 or so people on Fiverr. I found one decent designer but the work quality deteriorated over time.

I then went to Upwork and posted a job for a  graphic designer. I found a great team down in Argentina, who I’m very happy with.

I’m currently experimenting with working with a ghostwriter. A few of my latest posts have been transcribed from my recording, with the ghostwriter making sense of it all.

I can compile about 3 posts in 90 minutes, then take another 90 or so minutes to prepare them. Saving me around 3-4 hours per post this way.

What’s your main income stream and why do you think it works for you?

My main source of income for the blog is affiliate revenue. It works because the partners I do have are high-quality businesses, who deliver value and solve real problems. This makes it easy to naturally link to such a partner.

When did you start making more than $10K/month and what was the turning point?

My first month over $10K was in January of 2018. In December of 2017, income was around $3,000 and in July of 2017 around $500. So, it was definitely a jump.

What happened then in January?

First, personal finance is at its peak interest in January.

Second, I had multiple Pins go viral.

Third, in November I started driving traffic via Facebook to the site. So, in January I could take campaigns I’d been fine-tuning for a few weeks and scale them.

How do you balance work and family life?

I have a routine I stick to Monday through Friday.

When inside of my designated working hours, I work. When outside of these hours, I’m not.

This is a lot easier said than done. But the thing important for me is not to take work everywhere I go. This means I don’t have any apps on my phone that are work-related (email, analytics, etc..)

What are you 3 best finance tips for newbies?

  • Focus on your savings rate. How much you save is the most important decision you’ll make.
  • Small incremental improvements add up over time. My favorite example is increasing your savings rate 1% every quarter, means you’ll be saving 20% of your income in just 5 years.
  • Study happiness. Become a student on how to increase your level of happiness. The natural result is you’ll want less overtime, making the game of personal finance a lot easier to win.

What books, blogs or podcasts help you stay motivated along the way of growing an online business?

I read a fair amount to keep fresh ideas in my head.

My favorite podcast is The Tim Ferriss Show.

Two blogs I enjoy reading are:

Farnam Street
Barking up the Wrong Tree

And as far as books. I try to read one a week. A few books I would recommend to online entrepreneurs would be:

Deep Work by Cal Newport
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss
