I look forward to reading your business advice!
I hope mine isn't too off-topic - I was inspired by Peg's hub and loved how she used real examples from her career. It made me think 'hold on, I have worked in retail for years, what advice could I share?'
How Do I Increase Sales? 15 Methods to Increase Retail Sales
Are you kidding? Sales skills DEFINITELY fall under the category of business skills, and it's awesome that you're drawing on personal experience. That's the best way to go!
I love the advice you've shared and all the original images you've used. They really do add authenticity to the Hub, which is big, because a lot of business-related guides online are written by people who don't really know what they're doing.
You know, with that in mind, I might even recommend mentioning your experience somewhere in the first text capsule to let readers know right away that you have had real experience and really know your stuff
I just saw my name and did a double take! Wow. Thank you for that and I read your article and it was fabulous and I think, right on target for this inspirational topic and the challenge. If retail sales improved then it might improve the economy, Right? Hooray!
A little more focused perhaps, but I hope it's useful - Business skills for teachers
Oh I enjoyed this topic so much I feel like I'm on a roll! Here's my second hub:
[url=HubPages ]11 Secrets to Great Window Displays: Make Your Your Shop Window Increase Retail Sales[/url]
Whoops, that link didn't work :-) Here we go again!
11 Secrets to Great Window Displays: Make Your Your Shop Window Increase Retail Sales
This is a rich topic and a great inspiration for those who've spent a lifetime at work like me! Thanks for this challenge. Here is my contribution.

Just published this afternoon.
This is really great! Your advice is fantastic, plus I love your formatting and the original images you used! Awesome Hub.
Great advice: "Don't be lazy in learning." I wish I could count the times my co-workers have scoffed at the idea of taking a course or learning something new. They say, "is it going to cost me money?" or "I don't have any time," or "I'm too old to go back to school..."
Also like your subscripting.

~Top Ten List of Interpersonal Skills to Boost Your Career~
I was tired of the same old boring skills information that passes for improving one's career. So I wrote my own list!
Yeah, I really like this! It's nice to read something that's not a broken record, and the interpersonal skills you chose to feature are stellar.
Wonder ful hub, with lots of superb advice and its fun too :-)
Here is my contribution to this weekly topic:
How to Compose a Professional Cover Letter
http://rosika.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-C … etter?done
Oooh, this is fabulous!! Your template and tips are great, plus I love the illustration you did at the top!
Wow! I enjoyed this topic. To the point where I want to give up retirement and go back to work. (N-O-T!!!)
http://arlenevpoma.hubpages.com/hub/14- … ities-List
Hahaa, well, your list certainly has me amped up!
I second Simone's comment here: hahahahahahahaha
Just read the hub and it was very good.
Hi guys! Hi Simone! It took me some time before I landed my first job after graduating from college and these are some things I learned while searching for that next job.
http://stellasee.hubpages.com/hub/Job-S … -but-didnt
This hub brought me back to my University days and I remember how difficult it was to land that first job! Some great tips, and the hub looks great too!
I really appreciate this! If only every college freshman entered school KNOWING that these things are important. It seems as though these lessons are usually learned too late.
This was a really fun topic. I haven't tried these inspiration hub ideas before, but I think I'll have to try it again in the future. I ended up wrting a hub I wouldn't have wrote otherwise, but I really enjoyed doing it.

This hub may change my mind about personality tests...We have a running joke in my family of when my son took an assessment test to find out what type of career he should have and one of the top answers was "River Boat Captain". He has no desire to have anything to do with bodies of water. I still sometimes refer to it and call him "Captain". Yet, as I think about it, he is his own boss and works outside...hmmm
I'm so glad you like the topic, kgala0405! I do hope you'll join in on the fun more often
The Hub is fantastic! I love your simple, clean layout and how useful it is! Love the table and listings, plus the way you've broken down the info.
Hi Simone, this is a brilliant inspiration topic - as always you know how to pick the ones that stimulate great hub ideas and get our creative juices flowing.
Here's my contribution. I have used inspiration from a speech I gave last year...
Thanks to your wonderful suggestions, as always.
Top Effective Leadership Skills and Qualities #1

Great hub. I liked the "powerpoint" pictures and your formatting.
Thanks Docmo! Your Hub is so inspiring! Thanks so much for creating it.
My submission is about business etiquette
http://workathomemums.hubpages.com/hub/ … -Etiquette
How knowledge of etiquette in the business world is key to success.
Good job. I'm not sure about the ending, unless it was "time to leave" Maybe a summary capsule could be added.
Wow, this sure is packed with useful tips!
Here's my contribution.

http://farmloft.hubpages.com/hub/Top-Te … areer-Path
This is a highly useful hub with plenty of practical sensible advice!
Yeah, this is great! I know too many people who are looking for jobs in only one or two ways. It's important that people utilize all channels possible!
Just finished mine
http://case1worker.hubpages.com/hub/Goo … -list?done
Will read the others a bit later when I have had a rest!! ( I didn't want to read what anyone else had written as I didn't want to be influenced)
A great topic, I guess I found it a little hard!
I like the "exit your ivory tower" advice. I enjoyed the longer narrative over the bullet points. Also like the video. I have to learn more about putting them in hubs.
Great hub. Effective list of skills and descriptions.
I quite liked this! Your points about having a strong vision especially rang true with me.
Here's Part II of Effective Leadership skills - thanks for everyone who gave such positive feedback!

Finally published a hub on "A Beginner’s Guide to Getting Great Professional References"------I was holding it for long time as I didn't had time to edit it...what a pity! Now I feel relieved.
