    Do you think it’s too late to…?

    Have you imagined things you would like to do in your life and then talk yourself out of them because you think it’s too late or you’re too old? Perhaps you might want to reconsider. It’s common for people to dismiss satisfying ideas and interesting options because of inaccurate or unfounded assumptions.

    Are You Remarkable?

      Are you a fan of TED Talks, the videos that showcase “Ideas Worth Spreading”? I love them. In under 20 minutes you can watch some really smart people talk about key ideas. One of my favorite TED Talks is by marketing guru, Seth Godin speaking about “Sliced Bread and Other Marketing Delights.” In this video, Godin notes how marketing has changed: Interrupting people to get their attention doesn’t work […]

    The right way to network

    “Networking”—it’s an overused and widely misunderstood “must do” job search strategy these days.   Anyone who is looking for a job has probably heard that most open positions are not advertised in traditional ways and the key to any successful job search is “networking”.

    Are you prepared to promote yourself?

    At some point in your career you’ll need to promote yourself—be ready.

    Stay engaged in your job search after an interview

    I know it’s tempting…you’ve had a great interview and so you decide to wait on pursuing other job prospects until you receive word (of an expected job offer). Even though that may seem to be a reasonable thing to do, it’s a bad idea and here are three reasons why: Waiting is deflating.

    Begin with the end in mind

Often these goals center around improving current jobs and careers or obtaining new jobs and new careers. Many clients come to us at this time of year struggling with these challenges. They’ve taken stock of where they are and have decided they want something different…a promotion within their current employer, a new […]

    Dare to dream about your life.

    Do you dream about what you want in your life—new job, different career direction, supportive friends? If you’ve had dreams that did not materialize, did your disappointment or loss prevent you from daring to imagine other possibilities? Dreams are part of a complex mix of desires, feelings, beliefs and actions that can eventually result in a physical form. If you seldom experience dreams becoming real in your life, it might […]

    What are your 3 words for 2015?

    I love this time of year…January is full of possibilities. We make New Year’s resolutions, set goals, make big plans. For many of us, it’s a time to take stock of our careers and think of what we’d like to accomplish in 2015…A new job, more responsibility, more pay, a promotion, or all of the above. A few years ago, I came across Chris Brogan’s 3 Words for the Year. […]
