shy businessmanDo you feel nervous when meeting new people? Do you hesitate when making a phone call or starting a conversation?  Do you feel awkward when another person is in proximity to you?  Do you experience lack of confidence when talking to a potential employer?

If you experience any of above, chances are, you are shy.  Shyness is a social psychology term. It is used to describe the feeling of apprehension, lack of confidence, or awkwardness, especially in new situations or with unfamiliar people.  Shyness may be a result of personality introversion, genetic traits, or the environment in which an individual is raised.

You don’t have to be a psychologist to understand that shyness could be a major obstacle in your career.  Unfortunately, in most cases it is not something that is easy to overcome and it doesn’t just go away on its own.  Shyness could be a big hurdle on a way to your professional success.   It can prevent you from achieving your goals.  It can keep you from getting a job of your dreams, climbing the carrier ladder, or even building a professional network.

Ben digs sexy resumesAccording to a Treasury Inspector report, over 15 million taxpayers may be surprised by a tax bill instead of the usual tax refund this year. This is especially a concern for people who work two or more jobs, married couples who both work, etc.

If you ended up with large amount of tax you need to pay and don’t have enough cash, there are a few options. Which one is the best depends on the amount you owe and your personal situation.

In any case, you need to file your tax return first (or file an extension). It doesn’t matter if you have the money or not because if you don’t file, you’ll pay a 5% per month penalty of the amount owed (up to 25% of your total bill). The penalty will be only 0.5% per month if you file your return on time. For more info on penalties, see IRS website.

On top of this you will also accrue an interest on the amount owed until you pay your bill in full. IRS interest rates are adjusted quarterly and the current rate is 4%.

I want your resumeA few days ago Korean Air Chairman Yang-Ho Cho shared their plans to build one billion dollars Tower in the middle of Los Angeles. Wilshire Grand Hotel (the company owns it) will be torn down to replace it with $1 billion complex that includes a 560-room deluxe hotel and 65-storey office block.
