The Do GOOD Daily BonBon is an idea of what you can do today that will help change the world!

Since Christmas and the Holidays are coming up, you can purchase an early gift for someone (and give it to them later) AND help an entrepreneur in a developing country at the same time!

How can you do this you ask?

Well if you go to KIVA.org, you can pick from hundreds of entrepreneurs (their stories are listed) and give as little as $25 towards bringing an ambitious person out of poverty! People appreciate these gifts far more than having another unnecessary trinket.

Some stats: An educated girl will apply 90% of her income back into her family, while a boy invests only 35%. (I still like men, I’m not trying to hate here :)).

In Africa, children of mothers who receive five years of primary education are 40 percent more likely to live beyond age five.

The Do GOOD TIP is a way of HOW you can do good, no matter how little or how much you have! Let’s spread the love with random acts of kindness wherever you are in the world!

How did I come up with this? Well I was attending the Harvard Conference on Social Entrepreneurship, and I met the man who created the Ethos Water campaign at Starbucks, but also the DO GOOD Letter, which was a weekly circulated paper in all US Starbucks with a topic of how one could do good. I thought it was a BRILLIANT idea, so I created this within the blog.

Under ‘Categories’ on the right panel click on DO GOOD TIP and be inspired to a world of possibility!

I am very passionate about personality types. The study of them just draws me in.
I get a thrill from learning about them, observing the multitude of personality types
around me, and using that knowledge to help people make career related decisions.

What I really like about the Myers-Briggs personality type is that it reveals a person’s
preference towards:

– how they perceive the world and
– how they make decisions

Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers soaked up the amazing
information of Carl Jung’s book Psychological Types, which declared that each person
is “wired” with different tendencies and preferences. These 2 ladies expanded his
research even further by creating the 16 personality types.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is “the best-known and most trusted personality
assessment tool available today” and “the world’s most widely used personality
assessment,” with as many as 2 million assessments administered annually says
the Consulting Psychologists Press.

Each personality type is divided into 4 letters, reflecting 4 preferences.

1. The 1st letter can be either an E: Extraversion or an I: Introversion
2. The 2nd letter can be either an S: Sensory or an N: Intuitive
3. The 3rd letter can be either an F: Feeling or a T: Thinking
4. The 4th letter can be either a P: Perceiving or a J: Judging

How do you Approach the World?
EXTROVERTS get their energy from being around people and enjoy social events.
INTROVERTS have a rich inner world, enjoy reflecting, and like smaller groups.

How do you Make Decisions?
THINKERS make decisions based on facts and use their head, not their heart.
FEELERS base decisions on unique situations and how they/ others are feeling.

How do you Process Data?
INTUITIVES focus on possibilities/abstract theories and see patterns.
SENSORS focus on the present, are factual, use their 5 senses, and notice details.

How do you approach End Results?
JUDGERS like organization/project completion. Judging does not mean “judgemental.”
PERCEIVERS like to keep their options open, are spontaneous, and dislike closure.

The following website offers a free Myers-Briggs personality questionnaire, a 4-letter
description of your type, and a list of career choices attuned to your personality.

The great thing about this website is that each question has 3 options to choose from
(tending strongly towards one preference, the opposite preference, or in between).

*Please note: The types are not meant to stereotype. They are meant to give a better
understanding of the type we most closely resound with.


I would L.O.V.E to know your personality type! Write it in the comments section please.

The following website also offers an excellent catering of information about your type.
Just click on your 4-letter type and you’ll be guided to a wealth of information ranging
from “About You” to “Famous People of Your Type” to “Career Matches” to “Your Type’s
Online Communities” and to “More of Your Type’s Information.”

Who Are you Meant to Be?

Hi! I found this article just two days ago because I decided to walk into a corner store, and behold, there was an Oprah magazine, and one article on the front page entitled “WHO ARE YOU MEANT TO BE?” really drew me in. I had to share this with you.

It is a quiz that lists how strongly you, your personality, and your soul’s purpose resonate with 7 different traits. It’s very quick and comprehensive.

Reach it here: http://www.oprah.com/survey/omagazine/20091001-omag-meant-to-be-quiz

It gives a description of your trait, what limitations it may cause, and how you can let this trait of yours shine by giving examples of a few real positions where you can use it in real life!

Here are my results:

You scored: 17

You are an artist: You came out of the womb with a paintbrush in your hand. Or maybe it was a flute or a castanet or a fountain pen to go with your poet’s imagination. The point is, you’re an original, and you know it. Even if you don’t have a singular gift, you’re drawn to the arts—anything creative, for that matter—and you have a unique way of looking at the world. Your need for depth and authenticity in relationships can lead to both great joy and profound sorrow, depending on whether others reciprocate.

You scored: 16

You are an intellectual: As a leader, you’re often ahead of your time. As an employee, you try to surpass the competence level of peers, even managers. Incisive and curious, you’re driven to deeply understand how things work. But that’s things, not people. Oh, your family and friends are important; it’s just that you don’t need to spend hours engaging with them. Social validation isn’t your goal—you’re secure enough in your cerebral pursuits.

You scored: 15

You are a nurturer: You are caring and supportive in your personal relationships as well as in your job. Unselfish and altruistic by nature, you often anticipate the needs of those around you before they are aware of them. If there is one thing that brings you satisfaction, it’s tending to others.

I’m so curious to know which traits all of you have! Post your top 3 below and give me the story of how you are applying them in your life or how you want to be applying them!
