7 Unspoken Rules of Visiting the Jersey Shore

Alright, so before we begin, let’s get the stereotypes out of the way. Those that live in New Jersey are not all about the gold chain, GTL (gym, tan, and laundry), being in the mob, always being at a diner, or having big hair. While some of that may be true – especially the part about diners – going “down the shore” is big part of our culture that speaks volumes about our beloved state. We may be the most hated state in the US, but New Jersey has a lot to offer that some people may not see because they don’t know how to act in our state.

One thing is for certain, we are particular about our beaches and going to the shore. So if you mess that part of your trip up, it’s not our fault we don’t like you. You just don’t know the unspoken rules of the Jersey Shore. And believe me when I say, we KNOW when you’re not from Jersey. So regardless of how many hours you spend learning about the shore and boardwalk before visiting, just know, we always know where to find the “out-of-staters”. Read More

Entrepreneurial Ingenuity…

A police officer found a perfect hiding place for watching for speeding motorists.

One day, the officer was amazed when everyone was under the speed limit, so he investigated and found the problem.

A 10 year old boy was standing on the side of the road with a huge hand-painted sign that said “RADAR TRAP AHEAD.”

A little more investigative work led the officer to the boy’s accomplice. He found another boy about 100 yards beyond the radar trap holding up a sign reading “TIPS,” with a bucket at his feet full of change!

Just goes to show you can always make a bad situation better with some business ideas in mind.

Ever Notice Luck Comes In Waves…

Recently had some bad luck roll my way with some materialistic things happen that cost me some big bucks. While it was becoming frustrating every where I turned there was another bill, sometimes that’s just way your luck comes about. I kept telling myself that I was thankful enough to have the means to pay my bills while also having a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and food in my stomach.

I can’t even tell you when it began, but there it was right after the holiday season it seemed like things were just building up for the worse. One thing right away the other and I was getting bogged down for a while.

2 Types of People: Doers & Sayers

We have heard the phrase “actions speak louder than words” plenty of times, but that phrase like many other clichés are just part of our language storage and doesn’t usually get the full credit that they deserve. It wasn’t until recently when I was getting to know a coworker that this phrase began to really play into my view of people I interact with on a regular basis and those people that I meet.
