COMMUNITY CULTIVATION

Looking for tips and tricks from The Chamber members to help enhance education and partnerships for families and businesses.  You have come to the right place.  The Community Cultivation section is here to help with answers from commUNITY partners.  Whether you are looking for tips and tricks to help with bookkeeping for your small business or study tips for your student or even some tips on real estate or insurance, this is the place to be.  



In each of our day to day lives, we are consistently solving problems.  It may be something as simple as what to make for lunch but finding the way to come up with the answer puts us through a process whether we think about it or not.  Successful students are great problem solvers.  Viewing the most difficult or complex assignment as challenges or puzzles to be solved helps to break it down into a much more manageable challenge.

Encourage problem solving skills by encouraging your child or employee to face the challenge and to keep going even if they make a mistake.  We often learn the most from those mistakes so finding a way to treat them as a learning experience and part of problem solving, helps develop that inquisitive nature that makes us all wonder why.

  • Respond to problems and challenges in a positive way.  Having someone stand strong and ask themselves ‘how can I solve this?’ produces a more positive reaction than one that thinks that its too hard and to walk away.
  • Laugh at mistakes.  Teach your children that we all make mistakes and its how we react to them and learn from them that often makes us stronger. 
  • Encourage questions.  Asking questions is often a way to build the logical process of walking though the problem.

Remember, it took Thomas Edison 10,000 tries to make the light bulb.  Where would we be if he would have quit trying to overcome the mistakes that he was encountering along the way.

  • We all know that junk texts are downright annoying, and typically all you can do is block them.  
    • Did you know that you can take an additional measure as well?  You can report junk text messages to GSMA's Reporting Service (Global System for Mobile Communications) by forwarding the message to "7726" and they will receive it.  Do you know what 7726 spells? 
  • If you ever found yourself holding down the backspace key to clear a bunch of words you needed to retype over again and thought to yourself, “there must be a faster way to do this!”  
    • Try holding down the CTRL key first, and now hit the backspace key. You’ll see that it removes entire words instead of just one letter at a time.  Try it out and see just how much time you’re going to save!
