Kindness and gratitude

Gratitude and kindness go a lot further than just about any other emotion I know. Choosing to be grateful and kind helps me personally and professionally.

The Familiar Zone

When you stay stuck in the familiar, you may feel depressed or stagnant, not having enthusiasm for your job, drifting off during the day to daydream of other things. The familiar creates apathy.

Tech Vacation

We talk a lot about the importance of unplugging and self-care. I want to take it a bit further and talk about a tech-free vacation.

Stress vs burnout

It happens every year about this time – I start hearing about burnout from others. But something I’ve noticed lately is we tend to confuse stress with burnout.

COVID and kindness

As the pandemic stretches on, it’s harder and harder to be kind to each other and ourselves. But in all of this, there are lessons that we can take away, and one major lesson is about kindness to ourselves.

Why you are not getting hired

Maybe it’s not about your qualifications, what diversity you bring to the team, your experiences, or your knowledge – maybe it’s your attitude! There may be some subtle but deadly things you do in an interview or during networking that are killing your chances of getting hired.  

Time to Change Career Paths?

Another year is coming to a close, so it’s time to take stock and evaluate your happiness and satisfaction. Maybe it’s time for a career change!

Gratitude Takes Guts

Gratefulness takes guts. If the year 2020 has shown us anything, it’s that there’s a lot that can bring us down. Sometimes it takes more to find the good, the silver lining, the gifts.

Goal Getter

It sure sounds like an admirable title, to be considered a go-getter, and most employers, while hiring for diversity, experience and education are also looking for go-getters. These people are determined and ambitious and will work hard for the success of the company. But while go-getting is a great trait, it really needs to be taken a step further. Go-getters need clear direction and vision. They need a goal!

Knee-capping Your Career

“I was kind of thinking that…” “I just wanted to say…” Language like this doesn’t communicate confidence. And as a result, you might be knee-capping your own career. 

Six-Figure Swagger

Let’s talk about something I call six-figure swagger! And yes, you can swagger even while working from home and communicating remotely. In fact, without outside distractions at the office, there’s no better time to work on creating a confident, personal brand.

Confidence: Fake It ‘Til Ya Make It

Whether you’ve just graduated, or you’re a seasoned pro, we all have career decisions that give us some anxiety. Recently, a friend’s teenager asked her, “How am I supposed to get a job based on experience if no one will hire me and give me experience?”

Pits, Valleys and Crevasses

How many of us how been in a hole of a different shape and size? Like is full of peaks and valleys. And you, my friends, will experience them all.

Time Management in a Pandemic

Have you noticed that when we only have one thing on the To-Do List, we get nothing done, but if we have 15 things on the list we get most of them done?? It’s all about momentum and time management.

Don’t Lock Down Your Goals

You may be sheltering in place or even locked down at home, but your goals don’t have to be. It’s time for long-term thinking, planning and strategizing.

How to sell with sensitivity

What weird and trying times we are in! I know people are afraid. Afraid of getting sick, losing money in their retirement, having enough to eat, being able to pay their mortgage, spending money. It’s times like this that we might be tempted to think: I can’t sell anything! But that’s not true. In fact, what if I told you that this is actually the perfect time to sell? What if I told you that there is a way to sell in times just like this? There is! It is called kindness.

Selling yourself  is not “luck”

My friend Jamie gets whatever she wants in life. What makes her so compelling? Is it luck? No, it’s confidence! She knows she is great at what she does, and she is motivated always to put the best version of herself out there.  

Herding Cats for a Living

Keeping teams in line and working toward a single goal is a huge challenge; not everyone is cut out to build teamwork! It’s herding cats for a living.

Don’t miss a beat!
