April 29 – Your sense of humor is shining today and you can use it to break down barriers. Winning over an influential person may be as simple as making a self-deprecating joke. Keep it clean though; there’s no point in risking an offense. If you’re taking steps toward a new professional position, spend a few extra moments today sending thank-you messages to interviewers, referrals, and supporters. Little details like this can put you over the top. First impressions are easy but making a good impression takes a little more effort.
