The 48 Second Rule

Out of work?  Feeling like things are impossible?  You can set yourself apart from the pack by following a few easy steps.  Think 48 seconds.  Years of experience have proven to me that on average the decision to grant an interview comes in the first 48 seconds after a hiring manager reviews an application.  48 seconds!  Your application had better be so good that it grabs an interviewers attention.  It’s easier than you think.

Online applications are the norm now.  They take less…

Taking on too much?

How many blog sites can one person have?  

It seems like a "personal" site can be updated whenever, but that a real purposeful site should have blog posts at a minimum monthly, and preferably weekly or more frequent.  I guess it depends on the type of blog and audience?


For interviews / video podcasts, more than once a month could be rather aggressive for starting out...

"Jellyfish Stings"~GREEN Inspirations~July 7, 2011

They won’t all be good days

They won’t all be good days.  Sometimes, even in the course of a single day there will be up’s and down’s.  But more important still, there will be periods of severe doubt.  Most long-term and successful pros have experienced multiple occasions, especially early on, where they have had to rebuild their entire organization.  The rest quit when things unraveled or the going got tough.


Challenge for today:

Think of a time where you had to start over.  Craft…

What’s the Root of Your Questions???

I ask lots of questions.

Questions are a good thing. You learn. You get more information so that you can move forward.

You might ask lots of questions too.

But…why do you?

Is it to learn, then move forward? Or…is it to just pile up information….then do…

Show 026 Finding your Voice - "It had to trip my trigger!"

She was always in there; we just needed to find her so that she could find freedom.


Freedom from false expectations, freedom from self-limiting beliefs, and most importantly, the freedom to be the mother, wife, entrepreneur, and lady, that had, up until recently, not been fully visible.

Work you love may not be easy...

I had a thought about work you love.


What if the work you love is not what other folks would consider "easy"? Would that stop you from pursing what God has put in your heart to do?

Dream BIG!

When you’re down and out, dream BIG! You may need to get a job and just gut it out, but you have got to keep dreaming big. That is the time when it’s most important, when you feel like the world is against you and people are telling you that you can’t do it and everything points to that same reality and you just want to lay down and die. You’ve got to keep dreaming big, bigger even. What’s the use of dreaming if you’re not going to dream big anyway? Many people who achieved great things were… Continue

What Are You Worth?

I am leading a 48 Days Workshop with my wife Ashley and we are in week 10, the dreaded/exciting (depends on your personality I guess) chapter in the workshop on Salary Negotiation.  I have experience on both sides of the fence.  After Ashley and I were married I found myself as a new college graduate and newlywed, in a new town and on the hunt for employment.  As I began my job search, I knew exactly how much money I needed to survive and guess what, the first job I was offered paid just…

July Fourth Weekend.

Hello again and thanks for reading. This is just a simple blog today. Just wanted to share that we had a pretty relaxing weekend. I didn't do much with the blog as I spent a good bit of time with the wife and kids. Even with building the web sites and businesses, you just got to take the time and enjoy life. Watched a couple of movies, played outside with the little one. Stayed up later than usual, which is quite unusual even for a weekend for me.

I think keeping things in… Continue

Independence Day

The nation celebrated its Independence yesterday, and all weekend. We recorded a show off the History channel called the Revolution. It told a lot of the history that was documented about our founders and what they done to make this nation. One feeling I could not shake was how the narrator kept saying the spirit was freedom and it was spreading throughout the colonies. I bet the atmosphere was was infectious and there was a…

Today's reflection - "If only I had the perfect job ..."

It’s an easy way of thinking to fall into: “If only I had the perfect job, then I would begin to take better care of myself and work on the other areas of my life”


Some examples are: get involved in an exercise program; go to church; read a book; study a new subject; attend a workshop; meditate; get together with old friends; meet new friends; the list could go on for a long…

What I learned Today... Earn Your Keep

I am so guilty of expecting things to be my way, I can work at a job that I have no experience in and I will find a way to feel under paid. I expect top be paid to dollar for everything I do, I will find myself so miserable at a job and looking for a new one because I feel under valued. Why the heck is this? Why can't I be grateful and content with what I do have? If I begin to actually…

Sooner than later

I recently talked to my brother who is two years younger than I am. He's working on some things now to go back to school to get a nursing degree. He's told me before he wished he had done this years ago. I remember our family sending him several states away to go to school to become a veterinarian. That didn't last long and before you know it he was back home. He joined the Army, got married, and two babies came…
