    As a young person with little or no experience, you may be offered a job for minimum wage. For you this could actually be a good thing as your employer recognizes that they will need to train you, and in return not have to pay you as much. When you don't have the training or knowledge needed to be a valuable and profitable member of the team, you are given an opportunity to gain that experience and get paid to do so.

    Around the United States and US Territories, minimum wage is set by either the legislators or by ballot votes, where the local cost of living among other things can be taken into consideration. Therefore, in general, the minimum wage around the US and its territories currently ranges from $5.15 per hour in Georgia and Wyoming to $9.50 in Washington DC.

    Some exceptions do exist like Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, and New Hampshire, where there is no minimum wage. Make no mistake--this does not mean that an employer shouldn't pay you, but just that there isn't a law dictating a minimum amount. If this sounds like it could be a frequently debated subject, you are right.

    The current minimum wage rates and some of the near future changes are listed on the National Conference of State Legislatures website. So your mileage may vary, depending on where you live.

    The Danish company Lego has touched lives for decades. Not many of us from around the world can even remember a time when there wasn't Lego bricks. In fact, according to Brand Finance, as of February 2015, Lego replaced Ferrari as the “World's most powerful brand.”

    Still passionate about Legos, Mike Olson, a plumbing engineer, isn't the only engineer who has continued to work and play with the colorful interlocking bricks. As a valuable member of many commercial and industrial building construction design teams, Mike uses his knowledge of materials, plumbing components, and construction procedures to serve his clients. Mike continues his passion for excellence with his life long learning attitude, leading by example in the industry association of the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE).

    Don't be confused... A plumbing engineer doesn't install or work on plumbing systems. Instead this type of engineer spends their workday designing systems on computerized drafting programs, coordinating with architects, guiding and directing plumbing contractors, and inspecting installations.

    Scientists have actually discovered neurons around the human heart. ( Dr. J. Andrew Armour introduced the term, "heart brain," in 1991. Armour showed that the heart's complex nervous system qualified it as a "little brain." 

    So yes! Sometimes your heart truly knows before your brain does. If something seems extra interesting to you, dig deeper to make sure that it is in alignment with who you are and who you would like to become. Then you'll know that you are on to something!
