Hello,My THINKING CAP works well for ideas for others.....the ideas for me feel like Porky Pig stuttering in my head. I still work full-time, and have a "lot on my plate" right now. Self-care, home, car, pets, wow....I already know that I am by my…Continue

I work at a small private college. I had a former student call me today. She finished a class THREE years ago and hadn't found a job in that area. She is working, but wanted to use this other skill as an add-on part time job perhaps......so blah,…Continue

I know something. If you want to do work you love you have to think differently. You have to have a more open mind than the average "Joe". Just imagine a new product that comes to market. The entire way it gets in your hands is the result of how someone or a group of "someones" thought. More than likely, it was a group of folks that helped produce something new, exciting and innovative. Take your cell phone for example. They keep making them better and better, and the bells and whistles get…See More

Are you a BUT WHAT??

Yes, I work at XYX agency, BUT WHAT I REALLY  love is dogs.This was the beginning of a conversation I had with a man who came to my office for a meeting.We ended up talking about all things dog related for a very long time. He talked breeding, ownership, The Westminster dog show, training, importing, exporting, dogs from Europe, the dog whisperer, a cute little Havanese (that I happen to meet at the library of all places), I showed him a picture of the dog on my phone and he rattled off the…See More

Stretch......reach for it.....

I recently started taking hot yoga classes in earnest. I'm usually flying through life at a rapid pace. Yoga gives me a chance to slow down, but still work hard, and effectively. One particular instructor said something in a class today that I heard her say last week, but it HIT me today. "Stretch.....like you are reaching for something you really want." I often think of the show "Mission Impossible". There would usually be a scene where the good guy would be almost close to something he wanted…See More

What's the answer?

A few days ago a young lady came into my office to inquire about a training program. I looked at her and said very matter-of-factly, "You are smarter than that." I begin to ask her questions like I always do, and she continued to tell me she didn't know what she wanted to do. I wasn't buying it for one minute. I could see much more in her than she even imagined. I gently nudged her with more questions and she FINALLY started talking about what she already had been doing and LOVED TO DO. She was…See More

Did I miss a lesson?

 Yesterday was the first day of school in my city and many surrounding counties. As I thought about all the children going back to school a question popped in my head?Did I miss a lesson? Most of us have studied hard, some harder than others, but I know there was a lesson which was missed. ** most people do not read a book after they finish high school** ten years after they have graduated 80% of the people with a college degree are not working in their field of major** unemployment numbers are…See More

Is it ME, or is it stuck in here......?

Gosh, my life comes at me fast. I know at times yours does too. What do you do when you are stuck? There may be an idea that just won't come together. You may be busy "inside" the lives of those around you. (See, my hand is raised HIGH!). I've been stuck, but I'm slowly wiggling out of my cocoon. I'm not going to soar overnight, but the process "feels" better in my head. I had it all planned out.I took a week off from work. I was going to tackle some projects and get some long over-due things…See More

Hi Bernice,

Funny you should mention my considering a career as a medical researcher. I've always liked the medical field very much, but since my chronic illness diagnosis (and even more so over the past few years), I've been more inclined to seek careers from home.  Right now, I've been leaning towards the executive recruiting industry which includes physician recruitment.  It's a tough industry, so I'm praying that I can make this work. There are a lot of financial and career rewards that go along with it.  You have a keen awareness, though.  I appreciate your feedback.
