Coronavirus, Mask Protection For All

BUSINESS PROS NEWSROOM The worldly unforeseeable and invasive Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic remains a serious spread. With new variants popping up and raising questions of being more contagious and infectious, the Centers For Disease Control suggests double-masking with a multilayered cloth mask over a disposable one is better protection.

Deaths and infected individuals are steady rising, no exceptions. Protection from the virus is a mandatory daily routine that must be properly done. Here are a few tips helping to maintain and protect everyone from getting and spreading the virus:

Mask Protection

The CDC recommends everyone ages two and older wear masks. They are crucial to helping reduce getting and spreading COVID-19, must fit snugly around the face without any gaps near the nose, mouth and chin and work when everyone wears them. Those with multiple layers prevent virus-carrying respiratory droplets from getting in and out when dispersing from the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.

Masks should always be worn in public and around those not living in the same households and when a household member is sick.

KN95 are filtered respiratory masks advised to be worn one at a time.

Social Distancing Protection

Six feet is the safe distance space required between everyone to lower the risk of getting infected with the coronavirus. The CDC describes social distancing as remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance from others when possible.

Following these measures provides better protection for self and others.



Business Professionals Always Be Valuable At Home

This article is to advise the business people accustomed to being in control, giving advice to others and never listening to advice, which sometimes results to many of them going through divorces and/or their kids being in trouble, on drugs, incarcerated or having problems in school.


Being a value when you get home and leaving business at the workplace is very essential.

Business professionals spending additional family time together and putting more things into the family may help to reduce the crime rate. Many of their kids are included in the statistics, and not because they have to be. They are trying to fit in with their peers. Peer pressure can take control. The parents have been there and experienced and overcame it, but can the kids be as strong? The kids are probably actually looking for attention and getting it the wrong way. Some do not get mentoring from their parents to become leaders, although their mother or father has control at work and is a leader. So, they are always followers, who are usually easier to get in trouble. Leaders take control and probably overcome a bad situation and followers will be in the situation. The parents have money and use it to solve the problem and not deal with it.


The book Just Tell The Truth has a chapter specifically talking about parents having the money, lacking the time, not facing up to reality and in the end the money could not spare the child's death.

The powerful business leaders need to think about how much it will cost for them to deal with their real family problems and not the business. This advice is not intended to persuade to ignoring the business and spending the majority of the time at home and forgetting work, because that too will not be beneficial. Just put more time into being at home. Experiencing fun activities in the relationship makes the mate feel like he or she is included and there is a special bond. Being at home 10 or 20 minutes and then leaving does not. Plan to go on trips and spend time with your kids and spouse and embrace their suggestions and see if there's something able to be planned. Do not always expect the spouse to plan something whenever it's time for a vacation from work. Make plans and be in control of family gatherings and be happy. Relax on the vacation and enjoy and leave business work at work.

Make sure to attend church in the mist of all the business and family gatherings. Church relieves a lot of stress and going for the right reasons makes one earn every blessing coming from God. Believing, should get the business and relationship with the spouse and kids better and of course the relationship with God has to be better.

Businessmen may have a busy Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. However, they should not be so use to people planning their schedules, conferences and in between meetings, presentations, lunch and breakfast dates to the point of not planning dates with their spouses. It's okay to get off schedule and plan a special unscheduled event, because no one wants to come home everyday and have a big nice home and all the things money can buy and be miserable. It's not a good feeling to have everything you want and not what you need. That is something to think about, because a wise person once said, “You can want what you want and can't always get what you need.”

Businesswomen usually working all day and being in control should cook a Sunday meal on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Every little bit helps. Although it may be a lot easier to order or bring food, the energy it takes to prepare the food and smell it through the house and sit at the family table can enhance a relationship and actually make a husband come and enjoy coming home. What man wouldn't want to come and be at home and be happy when knowing he has a steak, baked potatoes, salad and a nice smoothie prepared for him. It's about taking time to take care of the important things and avoid having major problems in other areas. Don't just look good at work. Make sure to be good at home. A lot of people talk about doing right, but they are not right.

The college educated business professionals need to focus more on reality and not just on degrees. Having a degree let's the whole world know you did achieve your college education goal. However, having a bachelors, masters or PhD is not a requirement for being a good loving husband or wife, parent, uncle or aunt, grandfather or grandmother, etc. Everyone needs to know how to love, understand, care, spare others’ feelings, listen, give good advice and practice what you preach. There needs to be more than a piece of paper representing a person.

BUSINESS PROS News Staff wants to reach to all professionals before having to deal with a reality check, and say take and spend time where it is really needed. Manage the business at work and be a loving spouse, parent, grandparent, uncle, aunt or child at home. God will truly guide all the rest of the way when acting on this advice.
