You are smart, educated, and intellectual individual, but there is one thing that is making you look dumb—- your grammar! Learning the most common mistakes people make and how to speak correctly can make all the difference in the first impression you make.

 

TODAY’S QUESTION

Q: For those of you having a difficult time sleeping what do you do to make sure you get a good night’s rest when all else has failed?

A: Have something to wake up for the next day! Having a purpose in life results in few night time disturbances and improved sleep quality. Do you have your reason?
