Relationship Expert Says “Like Yourself – Like Your Marriage”

Speaks on Self Worth While Releasing Second Book.

Mora, MN (USA), October 22, 2014 — Lisa Cassman, a licensed counselor, author, ordained minister and speaker, says men and women need to learn how to like themselves. She says liking yourself makes all the difference in any relationship, especially marriage. She recently wrote her second relationship book, “The Light in Your Eyes,” published by Halo Publishing International. It’s a poetic journey with her husband.

“When you learn who you are, you can learn to like yourself, then you can give more in a relationship instead of taking all the time,” says Cassman. “When both a husband and spouse can learn to do this successfully they can have a happier marriage.”

Research shows that self esteem is a huge issue globally, especially in women. One study shows only 4% of women think of themselves as beautiful, while 80% of women agree that every woman has something about her that is beautiful but do not see their own beauty.

Cassman says these stats are a product of what’s really going on inside of woman – her self worth. She knows because she also struggled growing up with low self-esteem and self worth. That’s why she speaks and writes from her own experience through sexual abuse, and a struggling marriage that ended in divorce. Through her faith and learning to like herself, she received healing. Now she’s married to the man of her dreams.

In her self-worth seminars, Cassman gives keys to help others find out what causes low self-worth and avenues toward solutions, while also encouraging attendees to draw on their faith for healing.

“Lisa’s seminars and books weave a dynamic story of brokenness to wholeness, which helps others to do the same in their personal lives and marriages,” says Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina.

“The Road Less Traveled… A Guide to a Positive Marriage,” was inspired while on a road trip with her husband in his semi-truck traveling along the West Coast. From her professional experience, she pours her inspirational insight and her own personal understanding of relationships into her work and guiding others through marriage. You can purchase it for $12.95

“The Light in Your Eyes,” written across the last 30 years, documents Cassman’s journey into what love means, as her husband, Steve, showed her, starting when they were hopeful teens. You can purchase it for $11.95.

You can book Cassman as a speaker or wedding officiant by visiting www.LisaCassman.net.

A Minnesota native, Lisa Cassman has more than 20 years experience counseling children and families in the church, as well as working with sexual abuse and domestic violence victims at a crisis center. She has a bachelor’s degree in Christian Counseling from the Pastoral Counseling Center, which is accredited through the National Christian Counseling Association (NCCA), and is also certified to administer the Arno Profile System (A.P.S.) report, which is a personal identification/inventory. She and her husband have four children together and six grandchildren. She enjoys speaking at women’s conferences and traveling to officiate weddings.

Varsity Tutors Highlights Relationship Between Education and Income Level in New Infographic

Data Serves as a Resource for Parents and Students in Assessing the Value of College Degree

St. Louis, MO, June 04, 2013 – To help parents and students better understand the value of higher education, Varsity Tutors, a premier one-on-one private tutoring and test prep provider, today released an infographic that delves into the perceived importance and actual effects of higher education on income and career prospects. Entitled “Education vs. Income Level,” the infographic compares educational attainment to U.S. employment and salary statistics.

In 2009, 73 percent of Americans said they agreed with the statement, “In order to get ahead these days, it’s necessary to get a college degree,” compared to just 49 percent in 1978. This increasingly common perception aligns with employment and salary statistics for college-educated adults.

“Data has shown that highly educated individuals are more likely to earn higher wages throughout their lives,” said Varsity Tutors founder and CEO Chuck Cohn. “It’s important for parents and students to understand the value of a college degree when making decisions about their education and future career plans.”

The infographic features survey data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and other sources, including these key facts:

* The unemployment rate for college graduates is well below the national average, and has been consistently lower than the rates of unemployment for individuals without a Bachelor’s degree over the past 10 years.

* In 2013, the unemployment rate for people with a Bachelor’s degree or greater was 3.7 percent, compared to 7 percent for those with some college experience or an Associate’s degree, 8.1 percent for those with a high school diploma, and 12 percent for those with less than a high school diploma.

* Individuals with a Bachelor’s degree are expected to earn $2.422 million over the course of their lives, compared to just $1.371 million for those with only a high school diploma.

The infographic also highlights differences in income among individuals with master’s and doctoral degrees, and compares wages and annual earnings across several career fields from Engineering to Social Sciences. To learn more about the impact of higher education on income, view the full infographic at http://www.varsitytutors.com/blog/education+vs+income+level+in+the+usa+infographic.

Now’s the Time to Create Your 2012 Relationship-building Plan

Instead of making New Year’s resolutions that are seldom kept, create a 2012 Relationship-building plan that will help you maximize networking benefits. Learn from business networking authority Lillian Bjorseth how and why to do it.

Lisle, IL, December 18, 2011 – Instead of making 2012 resolutions, which are often idealistic and unrealistic, create a 2012 Relationship-building Plan that will last for years,” says Lillian D. Bjorseth, president of Duoforce Enterprises, Inc., and a networking and communication skills speaker, trainer, coach and author.

“Make it practical and concrete, and it can help you achieve maximum benefits from your networking endeavors. After all, networking – whether face-to-face, online or preferably both – is still the number one way to increase sales, get a job and enhance your career success,” says Bjorseth, author of Breakthrough Networking: Building Relationships That Last.

While the plan may take you a while to create, it can, with slight modifications, serve you well as long as you are in the same business/job, according to Bjorseth. “It also will keep you from fishing for trout in a catfish pond i.e., you’ll know where to find your target market and people who can introduce you to your target market,” she says.

Bjorseth suggests you start by writing down the focus of your business or if you are in transition what you would like to do. Her experience after working with thousands of people nationwide is that most have difficulty succinctly articulating what they do. She advocates following Thomas Jefferson’s advice: “Never use two words when one will do.”

Secondly, Bjorseth recommends you determine your U.O. “Ask yourself: ‘What’s your Unique Offering? How do you do what you do differently? Why would people hire you or buy your products or services when they know five other people who supposedly do or sell the same thing?’” she says.

Bjorseth advises you to then determine your target markets and answer who, what, when, why, where, how do they buy? “This should take you an hour or more if you do it thoroughly … and think of the valuable information you now have at your fingertips!” Bjorseth adds.

Then it’s time to answer the question, “Where are you most likely to find your target market?” according to Bjorseth. “List organizations, groups and events your target markets are likely to frequent. You need to zero in on the few that are relevant to you. You don’t have time to try a dozen different groups, much less pay dues and activities’ fees,” she says.

Another helpful hint Bjorseth gives is to know where to find the organizations/events that are frequented by your markets or those who can introduce you to them. “Be creative. Check the web for local chapters of national organizations. Peruse print and online calendars of events. Also, make a list of whom you already know, divided into such categories as business; professional /civic/industrial organizations, etc.,” Bjorseth adds.

“Above all, finish the plan. A half-done one will give you half-baked results,” Bjorseth says.
