Wanna Be a Millionaire? You Should Listen to This…

By Tuesday, December 2, 2014 0 Permalink 0

Eventual Millionaire, hosted by Jaime Tardy, is one of my regular entrepreneurial listens. Each week, she interviews a different millionaire (or someone very close to it) about how they got to where they are. The 12/1 episode, titled Six Months to Six Figures with Peter Voogd, is by far my favorite episode. Peter lays out a very actionable system to get you closer to whatever success and freedom mean in your life. Since the show's focus ...

How To Be The Most Productive Person In Your Office

By Tuesday, November 11, 2014 2 Permalink 0

  Raise your hand if you can stand to be a little more productive in your workday ... or life in general. If your hand is raised, then you can probably relate to having a range of easily distracted days (bad) and laser-like focus days (good), resulting in a pretty so-so week of productivity. If you didn't raise your hand, you probably realized how silly you might look raising your hand while reading a blog post. Or you're ...

At First Sight: Things Recruiters Notice About Resumes

By Tuesday, November 4, 2014 0 Permalink 0

Have you ever wondered how recruiters look at resumes? If so, a Facebook recruiter gave an awesome response to a Quora question on this very topic. Her response was so awesome that Mashable picked it up and turned it into an article. Most of what’s on the list is spot-on, so I encourage you to check it out. It’ll help you understand where you should and shouldn’t be spending your time when updating or crafting your resume. Just to give you an idea of what to expect, the top five things she looks at on resumes are: most recent role, company names, overall experience and progression, keywords, and gaps or periods of unemployment.

Basically, I approve this message.

Introverts: 4 Signs It’s Time to Go Home!

Have you ever made the mistake of staying at an event 30 minutes too long? Forget 30. How about 5? If you're an introvert, you probably just had heart palpitations or a traumatic flashback. It's the worst. You start off chatting and engaged in what's happening around you. You're yelling over music or other voices with no problem. Your cup runneth over. Then next thing you know, your sail is windless. You're zorbed out and would love nothing more ...

Why I’ve Given Up Chasing Dreams

By Monday, October 27, 2014 1 Permalink 1

I've always been a dreamer. Ever since I was a child, I've had dreams of doing Big things. Writing The Greatest Novel Ever, being a world class athlete, painting something NYC gallery worthy. My mom made sure to instill a "you can do and be anything" mindset, and I love her for that. Thing is, dreams are just that. Dreams. And with no follow through, they're just deflated dreams. For years I floated along on the ...

Got Offers and Interviews? Watch Out for This Employer Swindle

By Thursday, October 23, 2014 1 Permalink 0

I was thinking about a job seeker I worked with and a situation she ran into: She had an offer on the table from one company (Company A). They initially told her that she needed to respond within five business days. She then interviewed with another company (Company B), and it was clear this company would move her to the offer stage quickly. So she called Company A and told them she might might have another offer coming from ...
