There are a lot of reasons to consider working from home….
Reduced or eliminated commute time, total control over your work environment, and perhaps a more flexible schedule.
Imagine yourself in a home office with all your…Continue
What is more risky? To pursue something you love that you have a talent for, or take the safe job that you feel no connection to and hope doesn’t drive you to despair? Putting on a false face everyday, pretending that you care, going through the motions, hoping you meet the productivity benchmarks. Certainly this is the case in many workplaces. We have workplaces full of people working at only 25 to 30 percent of their true capacity. I believe that the only way to do your best, most…Continue
I have three books handed over to two different editors, presently. I also have another project, a logo, being reviewed by a committee. Not gonna lie - it's like Iron Chef over here with how many cooks seem to be in the kitchen.
So who did I hire, yesterday? A personal assistant.
In past job-lives, I've done the personal and executive assistant gig, myself. It was sweet! All I did was check my boss's emails, consolidate what they were asking of him, and send off some lists. I…Continue
We are fortunate today to have so many career choices available to us. However, it can be confusing figuring out which career to pick, and what will be the best fit.
When I chat with people about possible career…Continue
What career is right for me? What to do when you feel stuck!
Many of us are perplexed about how to go about choosing a career. The questioning starts in grade school, and pressure mounts as we near…Continue
A few days ago, I was talking with a neighbor who is in a unique stage of her life. She retired recently and although she has been looking forward to her “free time” she realized more than she expected.
“I get up in the morning and all the hustle and bustle I was used to is down to a slowed, almost non-existent pace. I thought I would love it, but I feel like I’m irrelevant.” she commented.
Holding an administrative position in a healthcare agency meant her life seldom had a…Continue
Government jobs can present a stable work option for today’s job seeker. Have you considered exploring government opportunities? Including government as part of your job search strategy may make sense, and give you additional…Continue
Hey, I got something we can all do together. Let’s make some extra money. Woohoo!
I’m talking about odd jobs, without getting jobs that can help break up some of these boulders in your way.
That seems to be a big wall for many of us. You always hear, “if I had an extra $1000 every month that would just change everything.”
Actually, no. That would not change everything because if you’re capped out now, you’ll still be capped out when you make an extra $1000.…Continue

Back when I was working my old job in behavioral health, monthly we would have meetings about distributing a newsletter to the community. Essentially, it would be a way by which our resident Psychiatrists and Social Workers could tout their clout... after all, a full third of any given publication was comprised…Continue
There’s not enough time in the day!
“Ha!” I say. “Hah!”
Every person on the earth has the same number of seconds each day – it all depends on how you use them toward your own personal and professional success.
Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Tony Robbins, Barbara Cochran – they share every minute with you – and me and every other business owner. So why isn’t everyone equally as successful?
Could it be how we approach the good ol’ to-do list?…Continue
First, be as specific as you can with them about expected outcomes. That is, set specific targets and goals with them and communicate them clearly and…Continue
Thanks to Megan Wilson of Ghergich & Co. for providing our topic this week! If you are a millennial, or a millennial at heart, you know that recruiting millennials is a…Continue
I’ve been thinking about basketball lately – wonder why – but the thought I have been thinking about is about player strengths. Professional athletes are focused on their strengths and because of that, they have the opportunity to really excel.
Can you image what it would be like to put a championship level basketball pro and put him on the baseball or football field? Would that make any sense? What about putting that basketball player in the role of a ballerina. Does that…Continue

My husband Matt and I watched a documentary called "On the Way to School" this morning. It's streaming on Netflix now, if you're subscribed... highly recommended, needless to say, since I'm basing this whole post around it.
The film centers on different kids as they make their way to school, many of them several hours away and across dangerous terrain. Some kids are in Africa, some in Asia and South America. Most of the kids walk, some take horses or intermittently hitchhike, and one…Continue
Reverse mortgages are heavily advertised as a great way to provide retirement income for cash strapped homeowners. Usually you’ll see reverse mortgages advertised using an aging TV or movie star encouraging seniors to unlock the equity in their home to provide…Continue
Almost everyone wants to have their own business. Of course, you don't want to spend the rest of your life working for someone else. It is easy to think of an idea on what business to venture. Even if you don't have a background in operating a business. If a great business idea knocks on your mind, the best thing to do is to act! So, the next question would be, how will you start to deal with this business idea?
Starting a business is not easy, you have to plan for it carefully…Continue

Last year, I taught my students the 48 Days to the Work You Love. I thought it would be exciting for a bunch of 15-year-old 9th graders to start developing job-hunting skills that I didn't learn until after military and college. I also taught them about a World War II hero named Sophie Scholl, through one of my favorite movies…Continue
