Order your copy of "A Year of Good Manners" (AYOGM) by Margery Sinclair and Jan Polk.$27.95
Begin using your treasured, family heirloom this week. This is a $400
value. If you took expensive workshops teaching dining manners and
other social graces, it still would not cover everything listed in this
beautiful, hard cover book. Good Manners are a Good Legacy.
Good Manners are Empowering! This is the information
that creates good self esteem, common sense, confidence and the ability
to make good decisions on your own. Without honesty, nothing else
matters. Armed with social graces, you will find you actually like
yourself. Recent studies show that happy people succeed in life. It
used to be thought that success makes you happy.
Reasons AYOGM is the perfect gift that will last a lifetime:
*High School students, college graduates, and first
job applicants with these skills will definitely be favored over those
who are lacking "social skills." These are the skills that all HR
Managers are looking for in a job candidate BEFORE they are hired.
*AYOGM may be used as a birthday book, journal, calendar, guest book, etiquette tip reference book and especially as a family heirloom.
*Collect autographs of family members on their birthdays
and anniversaries and this book becomes a treasured family heirloom
which becomes more valuable with each new entry.
*One grandfather used AYOGM to journal everyday for the
first year of his newborn grandson's life. What a wonderful legacy this
will be to have his first year of life recorded in the hand- writing of his grandfather along with family values from past generations. Children want to know who their parents are and they want to know their roots.
There is no greater gift you can give a child.....a loving family who respects each other.
*HR Managers use AYOGM as a way to empower your workforce. All employees will become equals on the same page as to what the company culture standards are. No longer will home training or lack of it be an issue. Three hundred-sixty five tips (365) are written for this generation used to 30 second sound bites. Not only will they discover sound business and social tips, they will also read a reason to use each tip. Good Manners are empowering!....and Good Manners are Good Business.
*If you are a "helicopter parent" fighting your child's battles, you are handicapping your child. AYOGM will empower your child by giving him/her the skills necessary to make good decisions on their own, the ability to develop common sense, confidence and good self esteem.
The best gift you can give your child is to keep your word and teach your child how to function on his/her own. We all want and deserve to be treated with respect.
*Buy AYOGM to give as a gift to your favorite teacher. Teachers can never have too many copies of AYOGM. They can give a copy to students who are not fortunate enough to be able to afford this most valuable information. None of us are born with social skills yet they are the common bonds of civilized people.
If you feel there is something you need to know regarding social graces, you will find it in "A Year of Good Manners" by Margery Sinclair and Jan Polk. There are 365 tips and 365 reasons to use these tips. When the reasons change, it is time for the rules to change.
Don't wait for someone to give this to you as a gift, treat yourself now. This is a book that belongs in your personal library.

"Nate Painting His Boat" (c) 2011 Jan Polk Image: 8" x 10" oil on panel
Gulf Shores, AL. I asked owner Nate if he minded if I painted his boat. He thought a few seconds and said "Yes, you can help me paint my boat." Not exactly what I meant; however, we both painted his boat and I painted him in my painting while he continued to paint his boat.
Artist friends Joanne Hall and Barbara Grey were nearby painting masterpieces of their own.
