Do you swear? Then you may have an edge in your professional circle. Lisa Wehr, the CEO of digital marketing agency Oneupweb, swears by swearing. Why? She knows a few things.

Using selective and well-timed profanity can indicate that you belong in a group. It shows people that you're honest and comfortable in your own skin. And demonstrating these two qualities is an easy way to gain trust—something business leaders are naturally gifted at. So stop skirting the subject, and start cussing. You may find yourself primed for success in business (and life).
