Get Ahead Like the Guys With Four More Tips

Get Ahead Like the Guys With Four More TipsFeeling like there are tons of ways that the guys at work use to get ahead and climb the ladder?

Ways that you don’t have access to or wouldn’t be allowed to use just because you’re a woman?

Guess what? There are many ways to bend their ideas to your use, it just needs a little creativity! Here are four more things the  men in the office do. And the ways you can make them work for you.

You’re not a sales type so don’t worry about it

Seriously. You don’t need to be aggressive to be effective. You do need to be a good communicator.

Listen to your customer or client, provide clear information and use good judgement to know when you may need to step back and try another day.

No one wants a pushy salesperson and by being the one who listens carefully, you move yourself ahead of the pack.

Network like crazy

Most guys go to the club, play golf and have a drink after work for a reason. And it’s not one you may think of. A lot of deals go down in these venues. Don’t worry, you don’t need to do these.

There are other ways.

Go to trade shows and events to mix with others in your industry. Meet other business owners and community leaders in your city. And most importantly, ask how you can help. Don’t try to make a sale. Yet.

One of the main things you want to do is to create relationships before you need them. Meet the councilperson in your district, go to lunch with the business owner next door. Grab coffee with the vendor at the show.

They’re more likely to help if they already know and trust you.

Believe in yourself

This really does affect how others see you and whether they believe in and feel confident in you. Fear and feelings of inadequacy in women in business is common. But really believing you can do the job is a first step in convincing the world. It DOES work for the guys, so do it too.

Stop the stress

There are many ways to battle stress and stay focused on the job. Regular exercise will help fight stress as well as improve overall health. The brain releases a number of chemicals during exercise that can substantially alter mood.

Fix your posture. Body language makes you more confident but it also helps fight stress. A simple power pose before doing something stressful can help. See the link below for a great TedX talk by psychologist Amy Cuddy to learn more.

A brain supplement or nootropic like Lumonol can help. It can also help enhance focus, increase concentration and clear up the brain fog. You can tackle several cognitive problems at once. The best part? It’s a cumulative effect. So it stays and grows stronger as you take Lumonol.



4 Guy Tricks You Can Use to Get Ahead at Work

Ever wonder how some of the men in your company all seem to be moving ahead faster than anyone else including you?

We’ve discovered these four tips that seem universal.

1. Come Prepared

This means not only coming to work prepared but staying on top of your work throughout the day. Be prepared for every meeting or project. And make sure that you have all of your prep work done. That way, you can discover and understand what extra information or resources you might need.

2. Have an Informed Opinion

Know the condition of your division as well as the state of the marketplace you’re in. Then, develop an opinion on how to improve. Real, not fanciful ways you and your team could give something new a shot.

Your opinion needs to be an informed one because everyone has opinion about everything in business. Be the one who knows what they’re talking about.

Now that you’ve taken the time to develop a viewpoint, make sure you pick a time to share it.


During a one on one meeting is great because you can tell the boss you disagree without drawing a crowd. Then, sincerely and politely present your case. Your boss may overrule you, but the important thing is that he/she will know that you’re not a blind, automatic yes. So those times you do agree, that yes will carry more weight.

3. Take the Initiative

Struggling for new challenges and recognition?  Then make sure that when you see something that needs to be done, do it. Someone said a new project is on the boards? Go for it. If you want to go higher in the company, you need to take risks. If you’re on top of all of your current work and things are going well, overstep your boundaries just a bit in a way that’s valuable to the company. Keep the boss informed as to what you’re working on. True, it may get taken away from you, but he/she isn’t going to forget your vision.

4. Stay Healthy

Nothing is going to trip you up more in your business life if you’re continually getting sick, hurt or distracted. Losing focus, concentration, and not being able to remember things is a sure road to failure.

Get more exercise, learn better eating habits, and even consider brain supplements and nootropics like Noopept Capsules. All of these will help you sharpen focus, increase concentration and enhance your memory.

The good news is that women can take advantage of these practices just as easily as men.

So there you are, four simple tricks that the guys use. And we can too.
