Online fraud and identity theft are huge problems. Hackers are everywhere. From the lone individual in his parent’s basement to state sponsored hackers from Russia and China, it's only getting worse. Like it or not, online fraud…Continue
I wasn't really considering a job move or changing locations again. There were rumors floating around the company about layoffs, but I tried my best to keep my head down and focus.…Continue
Information's pretty thin stuff unless mixed with experience. ~ Clarence Day
I talk with quite a number of people who want to make a career change but don't have the educational requirements an…Continue
Are you one who wants a roadmap for life showing you the best route to take? I am. I love the "how to" articles. Give me the steps and I'm good to go. In fact, in terms of choosing a career, having a career roadmap would be really helpful in…Continue
If you don't know where you are going, you'll probably end up somewhere else. David Campbell

Staying positive during a job search can be tricky at times. You are working hard at progress, but not yet to the finish line. Stress and frustration can play tricks with your mind.…Continue
Pursuit of a better job is, in my opinion a very healthy quest to undertake. Most of us spend more time engaged in work than in any other activity. So we might as well design it to be something we enjoy.…Continue
If I were to tell you that to truly move forward in your life, all you had to do was move the ugly parked car in front of you, would you move it?
Most would say Duh! Of Course! How silly! But most of us do not move, no matter what. We don’t see that dirty car in our path that keeps us stuck in the mud of life.

The Charmed Life. What kind of life would you live if money was of "no object," time wasn't a concern, and you had no educational barrier? What does YOUR charmed life look like to you? This is the question we ALL ought to answer for ourselves, the question that seems very critical to answer, if we are ever to figure out what we truly want to pour our time into.

It's the 1 year anniversary of me getting fired from my job, 1 year of me trying to make a go at working for myself and 1 year of me asking for help in supporting my family. I wish I could say this last year has been one of the best for me, but then I'd be lying.
Every year at my review I'd try to have a list of accomplishments to show my supervisor that I was worthy of an increase in pay and responsibility. It was a way of making sure that my compensation was equal to the work I…
Last winter was a pretty rough year for Atlantans weather-wise. Unless you live in a cave, you probably heard about Atlanta's Snow-pocalypse 2014. Motorists were stranded in cars for hours while others…Continue
I started a project recently that consisted of going through 2 storage areas to clean out what is no longer needed and to add memories to the memory boxes now that the school year is over. What a process! You drag everything out to get to a box and then have all the other…Continue

I made a decision with my friend to start a podcast. After feeling left behind when I was not accepted into a certain program I was hoping to, I felt so down. Actually, I was angry. I never get…Continue
