Life is a song worth singing

Up at 430 am and in the gym by 530 am, 6 days a week.  People roll their eyes when I tell them that but my thought is there is always time if you are committed to what you do in life. As part of my routine, I have my music lined up.  My playlist is called inspirational. My choice of music for the most... Read More »

When you follow your passion, success will follow you

When I heard that statement, I looked up at the TV. Not really being a TV person, I normally leave it on for background noise. As I gazed at the TV, I could not let that slogan go.

Blinded by success!  And then it happens

“I worked all those years, coming to work every day, doing a great job. Each year there was a raise and eventually more responsibility. I went home at the end of the day and came back the following day. I repeated that cycle all those years until one day, I came in and was let go. During all those... Read More »

This year’s Job Search: Like nothing you have ever seen before

A job search today is not your Mother or Father’s job search “I have some ideas as to how I am going to approach this and would like for you to take a look and give me your thoughts.
