Mr.CBB’s Week in Review
Wow, did I read alot of blog posts this week in my spare time. (Ya, spare time) This week has been super busy for me training at work with new equipment and programs. I’m sure I will be doing this the rest of my life and I should for my line of work. Sometimes I wonder if people get too comfy in their jobs and no longer want to upgrade or keep above or at equal playing fields with those coming out of University and College or other colleagues.
Many believe these young kids are going to come in and swoop positions in the company right from under the noses of those that have been with an organization many years. So for those that believe that education ends when you get your diploma you must ask yourself “Will I evolve with the world” or “Will the world evolve around me”. You can be a specialist one day but if you don’t keep up with the “new” you may find that the “old” just doesn’t work any more. If you are out of work, laid off or terminated and you don’t have the upgraded skills you may be at a loss to get back into your field without upgrading. No one is secure in any line of work even with a union on your side doors can close just as fast as they open at any time… are you ready?
So I ask you, what have you done to keep your skills up to date with those coming out of University and College?
What’s Been Happening at Canadian Budget Binder
What a week it’s been on the Canadian Budget Binder home front. We had my guest post “Goodbye To Cigarettes and Hello To Life” at Finance Fox published. I hope the post will help others who are struggling to make the decision to quit a reality.
I was also thrilled to learn that Kim at Eyes on The Dollar who live in the USA had played my Grocery Game Challenge. You don’t have to live in Canada to play because the goal is to be mindful of your budget and to post it to keep it under control. You would be amazed what it will do for your budget and a financial budget works just the same. Holding yourself accountable for your variable expenses is so important to the success of any budget. So a big thanks to Kim for stepping up and posting her shops. We look forward to watching your budget hit the target for you and the family. Here is her story… “How The Grocery Game Saved Our Budget”.
