One of your friends is nervous about his or her work. What advice would you give your friend?

Hi.
When my friend is nervous about her work, I would tell he to practice hard before the work. For example, my friend was very nervous about an upcoming presentation to the top management. I advised her to practice the presentation at least 10 times before the meeting. In addition, I told her to prepare answers to those anticipated questions from the top management. She followed my advices and successfully completed her presentation.

In summary, practice makes you less nervous.
Thanks for listening, and have a great day.

Should children receive money or not for doing household chores?

Hi.
I am convinced that children should receive money for doing household chores.
I will present one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

This payment will teach children how to manage money.
When I was young, I received 10 dollars a week and I had to save 10% in my savings account. It was great to go to the bank with my mom and see the new balance on the account. To this day, 10% of every paycheck is saved(, no matter how tight our budget is.)

For this reason, I am convinced that children should receive money for doing household chores.
Thanks for listening. Have a great day.

How do you feel you could improve the quality of your work?

Hi.
I am convinced that less working hours will improve the quality of my work.

I am employed by a Japanese manufacturing company. Up until 5 years ago, I worked over 100 hours per week. I thought this was normal as most of my colleges did the same. However, this took a toll on my mental and physical health. Now I work much less hours, which significantly improved the quality of my work. Besides, I am mentally and physically healthy.

For this reason, I am convinced that less working hours will improve the quality of my work.
Thanks for listening. Have a great day.

Which factor is important in improving a workplace?

Hi.
I am convinced that limiting working hours is an important factor in improving a workplace.

I am a departmental manager of a Japanese manufacturing company. Up until 5 years ago, everyone in my department worked over 100 hours per week. I thought this was normal as most of Japanese workers did the same. However, this took a toll on the health of my workers. Now they work much less hours, which significantly improved the work efficiency. Besides, they are mentally and physically healthy.

For this reason, I am convinced that limiting working hours is an important factor in improving a workplace.
Thanks for listening. Have a great day.

Teenagers should have part-time job.

Hi.
I am convinced that teenagers should have part-time job.
I will present one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

Having a part time job, Teenagers can learn how to manage money.
When I was young, I had a part-time job. I spent 50% of my earning and saved the other 50% in my savings account. To this day, I try to save 50% of every paycheck.

For this reason, I am convinced that teenagers should have part-time job.
Thanks for listening. Have a great day.

Some parents give their children a weekly allowance. Other parents give their children money whenever they ask for some. Which is better?

Hi.

I will present one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

This allowance will teach children how to manage money.
When I was young, I received 10 dollars a week and I had to save 10% in my savings account. It was great to go to the bank with my mom and see the new balance on the account. To this day, I try to save 10% of every paycheck.
