Unexpected Skills You Should Teach Your Teen Driver

Unexpected Skills You Should Teach Your Teen Driver

Tricks to help your teen become a better and safer driver.  

Do you have a teen driver in the house? If you do, you probably put them behind the wheel whenever you can, and that is a great way to gain crucial driving skills and confidence on the road. The only downside to this is that the driver can quickly get familiar with the same routes and the same challenges, whether it’s a drive towards the grocery store or driving back from sports practice. When your teen has to drive somewhere out of the ordinary or encounters a new challenge, they develop new skills and stronger confidence.

Here are a few tricky skills that you probably haven’t practiced with your teen (but should!).

Different Stoplights

One-way streets, unprotected left turns, flashing yellow lights, busy crosswalks… There are plenty of different stoplights to learn. Even though certain intersections can be trickier than others, practicing them will help your teen driver to learn about staying aware of pedestrians, turning vehicles, and gauging when they can make a turn.

Long Distances

Clearly, you’re not going to want to turn your new driver loose on a road trip, however, if their longest drive has been to the mall and back, they might not be prepared for what driving long distances feels like. It’s often wise to give them some practice free-range driving, such as driving out to the country or catching a college game. Dealing with new roads, extended periods of focusing, and more drivers will ultimately help them become confident once they are loose behind the wheel.

Nighttime Driving

Many teens only drive during the day, so when they get behind the wheel at night once they’ve passed their test, they struggle. Driving at night has its dangers, from decreased visibility to drowsiness. It’s smart to take your teen out driving on a quiet weekday night to get them familiar and comfortable with driving around at night. Talk to your teens about the dangers and remind them to always have their headlights on.

Keep your teenage driver safe on the roads by helping them to develop smart skills. Additionally, secure auto insurance that can help. Visit the team at All Nevada Insurance for your custom car insurance policy in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tips to Avoid Entrepreneurial Burnout

Tips to Avoid Entrepreneurial Burnout

Easy steps to avoid burnout as you get started on your business.  

Being an entrepreneur has a long list of advantages. When you swap the lifestyle that comes with having a traditional job for the lifestyle that comes with building your own business, you have a lot on your plate. Even with the many benefits of starting your own business, stress isn’t always so easy to ditch. Entrepreneurial burnout is real and it can come in subtle shapes and forms that may take you a while to realize.

Here’s how to take preemptive action to avoid burning yourself out while building your own brand.

Take Regular Breaks

It’s easy to associate breaks with slacking, but in reality, taking breaks from work is scientifically proven to improve productivity. While it’s great to test your boundaries to see how much work you can do, take this to the extreme and you can burn yourself out. Ensure that you schedule time for yourself to exercise, relax, and enjoy time with friends and family.

Mix Up Your Environment

If you’re working in the same spot every day, every week, are you really taking advantage of your position? Switch it up by working at coffee shops, libraries, airports, and anywhere else with free Wi-Fi. The change of scenery could even spark new ideas while helping you to avoid getting stuck in the same routine.

Quit Multitasking

You might think of multitasking as a desirable skill, but it’s actually a practice that flies in the face of productivity. When you take on a few tasks all at once, it means that none of them are receiving your full focus. Your brain skips from one task to another, forcing it to pause and re-think its approach more times than it needs to. Try to get into the habit of finishing one task before moving onto the next.

Stay Protected

Building your brand is an exciting time for every entrepreneur. You may be focused on boosting business, but are you covered for accidents, disasters, and unforeseen circumstances? Securing the right business insurance can help your company stay protected, and it allows you the time to focus on your brand.

Whether you have an idea in mind or are ready to get started on an exciting franchising opportunity, stay protected and avoid burnout. For more information, visit All Nevada Insurance, serving Las Vegas in Nevada.

3 Ways to Maintain Your Car’s Value

Ways to Maintain Your Car’s Value

Top tips to help you beat depreciation and get a good price for your car.  

As many know, thrifty motoring doesn’t end when you beat the dealer down on the price of a new car. Depreciation is by far the largest motoring cost any of us will face. It’s well known that a new car’s value plummets the second it’s driven off the lot. In fact, many experts estimate that the average vehicle loses 15 to 25 percent of its value within the first five years that it’s in operation.

To help you retain the value of your car, start with these tasks.

Keep It Clean

Any car can look cheap when it’s covered in dirt, poorly cared for, and has layers of dust in the interior. A clean car can go a long way to keeping your car valuable, but this doesn’t mean you need to spend every weekend washing and polishing it. In particular, keep the interior clean, free from mud, dust, stains, and grime getting into small places. Brake dust is another problem as it can attach the clear lacquer on your alloy wheels if it’s left there too long. A quick rinse with soapy water once a week is enough.

Service It on Time

Routine car maintenance is a must, and a good technician can tell you if you’ve neglected things like routine engine oil and fluid changes. Follow your car’s regular maintenance schedule and save records of all services. Having a full-service history will also help when trying to sell the vehicle.

Sort Out the Dings

Small dings and dents are a sad fact of life, but you don’t have to just put up with them. A dent-removal expert will be able to help you with parking lot scuffs, scratches, and dings. Parking in a more deserted area of the parking lot might be all it takes to avoid those irritating battle scars.

How to Honor Heroes on Veteran’s Day

Get active for America this November 11th.   

Every November 11, America comes together to honor the brave men and women who fearlessly dedicated their lives to defending our great country.

It is the one day of the year dedicated to commemorating the years of service made by so many men and women around the nation. Military personnel put their country before themselves and fight to keep our country free and brave. There are some ways to get active to show your support for the veterans, fallen and alive, today.

Here are just a few things that you can do to honor heroes on Veterans Day.

Volunteer to lay flowers or plant flags at your local veteran cemetery.

By dressing the cemeteries, it helps remind communities and passers-by to spare a moment to think of those who fought for our country. Although they may be out of people’s minds more often than not, this day is dedicated to taking the time to thank those for all that they did.

Provide financial support for families of the fallen.

The USO and the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) provide financial and emotional support to bereaved spouses and children of troops who have died serving their country.

Fly the American Flag.

On Veterans Day, the flag should be raised.

Visit a military memorial, museum, or monument.

Take a day trip to learn about our military history or to pay your respects.

How to Prepare for a Power Outage

How to Prepare for a Power Outage

Arm yourself with the knowledge to prepare yourself and your home for a power outage.

Shockingly, 6 out of 10 American households don’t have a family emergency plan. Even though power outages don’t typically last for more than a couple minutes, it’s good to know how to handle a long blackout with winter almost here. Electricity can be out for several hours from severe storms. Instead of rushing around in the dark when the lights go out, ensure that you and your home are ready and know how to handle it.

Have plenty of food.

  • Keep a 3- to 5-day supply of drinking water in jugs or bottles. Plan on at least 1 gallon of water per person, per day, as well as enough for your pets.
  • Store a manual can opener with non-perishable foods for 3 to 5 days. Aim for canned chickpeas, beans, and peanut butter. Don’t forget pet foods!
  • Conserve water by using plastic plates and plastic utensils that don’t need to be washed and can be thrown away instead.
  • Have a camp stove or grill for outdoor cooking.

Stay in touch.

  • Have a portable, battery-powered radio and alarm clock.
  • Have a non-portable phone that will work even if power is interrupted.
  • Plan where to meet family members and how to communicate if separated.
  • Keep essential family member contact information near your phone and in your wallet.
  • Get your pets microchipped so that you can be reunited if separated.

Keep a kit.

  • Build an emergency kit well in advance of a storm (if you can.)
  • Gather plenty of flashlights with extra batteries.
  • Store a first aid kit that is close to reach.

Protect your appliances

  • Turn off all large appliances if the power goes out.
  • When the power comes back on, give the electric system a chance to stabilize by gradually using the appliances you turned off. Use only the essential first and then wait 15 minutes before turning on the others.
