Dr. RJ shares three steps to ensure success for middle school and high school students in the 2021 school year.

Austin, Texas – August 17, 2021 – Back to school can be exciting but stressful for both parents and students. There are so many pressures teens and tweens face when starting a new year of middle school or high school.

They are worried about getting the grades they need to get into college, making new friends and finding their place, handling the load of new class schedules, teachers, and extracurriculars.

Dr. RJ has a simple 3-step formula to help parents, teens, and tweens overcome the stresses of a new school year and set them up for success in middle school and high school years.

When following these 3-Steps Teens and Tweens will have more focus, become more organized, have increased confidence, and become more motivated.

These skill sets lead them to get better grades, make more friends, handle the pressures of a new school year, not give in to peer pressure and become capable of handling the unknown.

Dr. RJ. is a certified Teen Life Coach in the United States and has been transforming the lives of teens, tweens, and their parents for many years. After working with thousands of teens he discovered that you can create success by simply directing teenager’s focus to the one thing that produces growth, excitement, and motivation, and that is goals.

When teens and tweens shift their focus from problems of the past to possibilities of the future, their mood changes, their attitude changes, their emotions change. They then have everything they need to be overcome the stresses of going back to school and gives them the skills they need to be successful.

However, Dr. RJ finds that teenagers rarely have real goals. What teenagers have are wants, desires, hopes, and dreams. But not goals. To be successful they have to shift their focus and turn those wants, desires, hopes, and dreams into actual goals, and here are the three steps to do that.

Goals have the following three components:

First, we have to set intentions. An intention is a direction you want to go. This could be related to academics, sports, extracurriculars, relationships, or anything else that is important to you or your teen. It is the ability to see a destination. To have a finish line in mind.

Second, we need an action plan. Once you have set your intention and you know what you want to achieve, then you need a plan to get there. With the road trip analogy, this is the time to map out which highways you will take. The action plan is your step-by-step instructions to get to your destination. If your wants, desires, hopes, and dreams do not have daily and weekly planned actions in place, then it is not a goal.

Third, you must set a time frame. This is simply how long will it take to get your want, experience your desire, turn your hope into a reality, or live your dream. How long will it take? Using the road trip analogy, your time frame would be how long will it take for you to reach your destination. I bet if you ask your child how long will it take for them to accomplish their “goal,” they would not be able to give you an accurate time frame.

As I was explaining what goals are, did you immediately started to think about the possibilities for yourself?

For a moment your worries and stresses disappeared. You experienced excitement knowing that there are some goals that you yourself want to pursue. This is exactly what will happen with your teen or tween when they start setting real goals for themselves.

As we begin this new school year it is important to overcome the stresses a new school year can bring to both parents and teens. This is the perfect time to help teens and tweens succeed not only in school but in life.

Marisa Cotton’s Drive and Passion for Helping Business Owners Establish Their Fundamentals During the Pandemic is Refreshing

Starting a business isn’t for everyone and it’s especially not for the faint of heart. A couple of statistics that jump out is that 2 out of 10 businesses fail in the first year and 5 out of 10 businesses will fail within the first five years. So establishing and maintaining one’s business is actually harder than when they had started it, based on the available statistics, and these percentages could be worse. That wouldn’t be a stretch. 

This is why business education is important and having a strong network of resources and a team that you can refer to at times when things are not going according to plan. 

Take the recent Covid pandemic for example, which had businesses everywhere scrambling and trying to stay afloat. Whether it was their financial needs drowning them, or systemic and/or procedural needs, saying that it is, or was, rough times would be an understatement.

Marisa Cotton, of Your Star Power Solutions, is one of those resources that business owners turned to. She’s assisted more than 200 businesses during the pandemic by helping them properly establish or correct their business setup and operations. She provided them with the fundamentals they need to propel their business and profits to the next level, in the areas of business formation and set-up, structuring business finances and taxes and business strategy.

“One thing about me is that I don’t just do something for you,” Cotton explains. “I will explain to you what I’m doing along the way. Because at the end of the day, this is your business, and you are the one who will have to be responsible and accountable for it.”

“It’s one thing to talk about starting or building up your business, but what are you doing about it?”

Marisa also adds this when referring to the various “get an LLC” memes that are often parroted on social media. “An LLC is not for everyone. Know your lane and your needs.”

“People like to talk a lot about the marketing and branding of their business, but you’re missing the positioning and foundational structure of your business. Who builds a house starting with the windows?”

Wise words indeed. To put this more simply, we can’t talk about it. We have to be about it.

How Podcasts Are Changing Comedy from Side Splitters Comedy Club

During the past few years, there have been a lot of changes; however, one of the biggest changes in the world of entertainment has been the growth of podcasts. Podcasts have become incredibly popular for numerous genres, including comedy. When people think about comedy, they may think about going to a stand-up show or watching something on TV. Even though there is still a place for this type of comedy, podcasts have become a go-to destination for comedy. How have podcasts changed comedy? There are a few key examples.

Comedy Podcasts Have Made the Script More Important Than Ever

One of the biggest shifts encouraged by podcasts has been the importance of the script. Of course, the script has always been important when it comes to comedy; however, it has become even more important in the world of podcasting. Because the listener cannot see what is happening on stage, they can only rely on what they hear. Therefore, words are more important than ever. If the script is not solid, the listener is simply going to hit the back button and never come back. Unlike a stand-up stage, the script is responsible for everything. This includes context, background, and delivery. Therefore, podcasts have raised consumer expectations when it comes to the script.

Listeners Have Become More Interactive

In the past, listeners were able to sit back and let the comedy show come to that. Because there was only one element to the podcast, the audio, comedy shows have become more interactive. Comedy hosts running a podcast have a unique opportunity to grab the attention of the audience. Everyone wants to be more involved. As a result, podcast creators have become more creative. They find ways to make the show as interactive as possible by this means changing intonation, setting the stage, or drawing on trying to vent.

Podcast Hosts Change Formats More Often

Another shift when it comes to comedy involves changing formats. In the past, a stand-up host may deliver the same show over and over again in multiple cities. Even though this still happens from time to time, it does not take place when it comes to podcasts. Once the podcast has been recorded, it is out there forever. Therefore, the hosts do not have to go through the same podcast again. As a result, podcast hosts are changing formats more often. Even though the audience does have consistent expectations, a lot of hosts are changing their formats gradually to deliver the audience something different each time.

Comedy Hosts Are Collecting More Feedback from the Audience

Finally, podcasts also provide the hosts with an opportunity to collect more feedback from the audience. In the past, the host may not have interacted directly with the audience as often. Now, a lot of time cast hosts are collecting feedback from their audiences on social media, through email, and even text messages. This provides the host with a unique opportunity to change his or her format from time to time to meet the expectations of the audience. This type of interaction is unprecedented, and it is probably here to stay. Hosts no longer have to wonder what the audience is thinking. They simply have to reach out and ask them.

Looking to the Future of Comedy

Because of these changes, the world of comedy is more diverse than it has ever been in the past. This is a good thing, as it provides hosts with an opportunity to reach out to more people than ever. Furthermore, this also increases the range of comedy shows that people are putting on. There are even individual niches developing in the field of podcast comedy, pushing people’s creative skills to new heights. It will be exciting to see what happens next in the world of comedy.

How Does Gamification Enhance Mathematics In The Classroom?

What is gamification? How does it help in Math education? Here is how:

 

Thanks to the ingenuity of one Nick Pelling, gamification has changed how activities are carried out. Being a game developer from Britain, he coined this term in early 2000s as a tool for enhancing quick and fun electronic transactions.

 

Gamification applies the use of game-playing in non-game activities. Its intended purpose is to motivate, enhance participation and improve memory skills of the activity.

 

Nowadays, gamification has found its way into other industries such as education. As a result, it is applied in numerous subjects, one of them being Mathematics.

 

Here are 5 ways that gamification helps in Math education:

 

  • Gamified Math lessons enhance problem-solving and thinking skills in students. During such lessons, students will use all sorts of tactics to win the games. This improves their problem-solving skills and how they process a challenge, both of which are useful in Math.

 

  • Gamification serves as an assessment tool for learning abilities in students. As a tutor or teacher, you are able to analyze learning styles, strong areas, weak areas as well as their way of approach to each Math topic.

 

  • Gaming elements in Math lessons improve interpersonal relationships and interactions among students, parents and teachers. It narrows the generational gap between children and adults. This creates openness and freedom of expression, hence children easily seek help.

 

  • Gamification fosters an open-minded approach. It enables students to understand that there are always two sides to every story or situation, and that none is superior to the other. Losing, whether in Math or life is not the end, you have to try again.

 

  • Gaming elements enhance active participation in classrooms. For subjects like Math, active participation is an indispensable tool that mitigates boredom and facilitates better understanding of topics.

 

When used effectively, gamification enhances solution-seeking, interactions and participation in Math lessons.
