I remember a story my Grandmom told me once about how my Dad used to get out of washing dishes. She said that he would tell her that he had to tell her about something that happened that day, and proceed to share a looong story with her. He would get my Grandmom so engaged that by the time he was finished, she was thoroughly charmed, and he would give her a big kiss goodnight, and trot off to bed…dishes in the sink. My Grandmom said she would get up and happily wash the dishes for him!
4. BE OBSERVANT – Are there people around you that need help? Is there something that needs to be done? Keep your eyes open for ways to use your charm to help others out.
5. BE WELL READ – Charming + smart = Obama! LOL!
