interview prep Feb 12, 2020

When it comes to interviewing most people get overwhelming nervous or overly relaxed. Either they show up too sure of themselves or they approach it like an audition instead of what it really is...a conversation.

In a Rut or Time for a Change: Here's How to Tell

career advice Jan 07, 2020

Recently I sent an email out to my tribe asking them to answer two questions:  (1) "Do you love your job?" and (2) "Are you struggling getting up and going to work?"

Initially, I received several "I love my job" responses, which is always a great thing to hear. Then the "I can't wait to get out of this job" responses started rolling in.

affirmation Nov 28, 2019

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays this time of year, because it's a time when family and friends come together in love, remembrance and gratitude.
