Recently I read “168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think,” by Laura Vanderkam. I confess, I wasn’t very excited to read it. My business coach gave it to me as an assignment AND asked me to track my activities for two weeks.
Have you ever started to drink or eat something and then realized it was past the expiration date? Even if it tasted okay, you immediately feel a bit queasy and wondered if you’re going to get sick.
How much do you love WebMD? I love it—a lot. You know who doesn’t? My doctor (and probably most of the medical community).
One of the first things I ask my clients to do is list the criteria that’s most important for their ideal role and company.
I recently played Chutes and Ladders with my adorable 5 year old nephew. At first, I was worried of winning every game, but the worries quickly dissolved as he proceeded to kick my butt.
I’m a Parks and Recreation fan and the like so many others, I love Tom and Donna’s “Treat Yo’Self” day.
Do you know what the single most difficult thing is for our clients? By far and away, it’s asking for help.
Do you know when the best time to get a new job is? The answer is now.
Have you ever gone to a movie after hearing about all the Oscar and fan buzz and then was severely disappointed?
The job search is not for the weary. There are so many ups and downs throughout the journey.

One of the most common questions I get from my clients is: Can I get this role? They show me a description of a role they really want. They go line by line and tell me if they’ve done that exact thing or not. They then tally up checks and see how close they are to 100%. And when it’s not close to a perfect score, they tell me why they aren’t likely to get it.
