Smiling Is More Contagious Than The Flu!

On June 15th each year, National Smile Power Day shares one powerful expression.

From the good morning greeting and the first “How may I help you?” present yourself with a smile. No matter where you are employed, job seeking, retired, or looking for new horizons starting the day with a smile is certainly more empowering than a pout or grump. Starting with a smile first is easier than trying to get there later in the day.
