What I Liked

What I Didn't Like

Before we get into it... who am i?

Always good to put a name to a face, so firstly, my name is Hope!

Like you, I was stuck working 8-10 hour days building someone else’s dream.

I worked at one of those cool tech companies that has omelet stations for breakfast & craft beer on tap for after hours.

To a lot of people that’s a dream, but to me… something was missing.

All I really wanted, was to actually enjoy life – more vacations, less stress, buy myself nice things without worrying about the cost… but that was something my 9-5 couldn’t provide me.

That was until a few years ago when I discovered a way to make money online by actually helping real people. 

People in this case were local business owners across the US.

Me and My Puppy

The page above is an example of how I do it. That one-page site generates $1,500/mo and I haven’t even touched it since it was put up.

That’s an $18,000/year raise from just one page.

That’s why local lead generation is my #1 business recommendation for recurring, semi-passive income. If you want to learn about that business model, click here.

Why Does That Matter?

A lot of course reviewers have no experience with any of the business models or programs they review, and so they’re just making stuff up.

They do that because they want you to click through their link to buy from the person that the review is about!

They have no clue what it’s actually like to run the different types of businesses they write about.
I have absolutely no relationship with this program, so you can rest easy knowing I’m going to give you my honest opinion.
This review is written based on my own experiences with this business model.

All that being said, let’s jump into things.

Breaking Bad Body Language

Management Monday: Body Language Management

Breaking Bad is one of the hottest shows on television right now. In fact, Ozymandias (the most recent episode) lit up social media conversations and hit Google’s top trends. Viewers can’t get enough of the desolation and desperation. The show is a shining example of creating empathy through body language. In ‘Breaking Bad’ Recap, ‘Confessions’: Going To Extremes, Maureen Ryan describes a scene “we knew how tense everyone at the table was, thanks to their stiff body language and grim expressions, and the perkiness of Trent the waiter highlighted how non-festive everyone was feeling.” But, capturing reaction through body language isn’t just an art for actors. It is equally important for business professionals.

Breaking Bad Body Language

Poor productivity, unmotivated employees — even lawsuits — can result from communication breakdowns at the office. A strong communicator might jump-start career advancement, while a poor communicator might lose a job. In When it comes to career advancement, body language counts, Holly Ellyatt of CNBC explains that “body language and nonverbal communication can have a big impact on your professional life and can ultimately make or break a deal.” From giving a client a poor first impression to losing your team’s attention at a meeting, non-verbal communication influences success every day on the job.

So how do the masters of body language like Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad pull it off? Simple, they know the tricks. Some basic rules outline how to generate positive or negative emotions within the process of communication, and these can be utilized to enforce intentions.

Body Language Mistakes To Avoid

Body Language Mistakes to Avoid

  1. Bad posture sapping confidence
  2. Lack of hand gestures for engagement
  3. Gesturing from the elbow instead of shoulder
  4. Weak or overly forceful handshake
  5. Touching of face which conveys deceit
  6. Overly low or high voice tonality and pitch
  7. Unconfident or overconfident clothing choices
  8. Rolling of eyes
  9. Not facing people whom you are speaking to
  10. Standing to the left of an acquaintance
  11. Touching of lips which conveys disagreement
  12. Intensely clutching pen or other office items, including ones own body
  13. Crossing arms over chest conveying vulnerability or defensiveness
  14. Not maintaining eye contact
  15. Forgetting to smile for positive synergy

Correcting these mistakes can be done through behavioral training, but the most important thing to remember is that it all goes back to attitude. Your body conveys your feelings, like it or not. Developing confidence and positive thinking skills is the most useful key to avoiding defensive body language and mishaps. Breaking bad body language is a choice, make it what you want it to be.
