Know Your Strengths—And Weaknesses

Posted by: | Comments (0)

If there’s one most common mistake that holds business owners back it’s this:

business owners try to do too much.

I don’t mean that they try to grow too fast or expand too far. I mean that they try to do too much on their own. Read More→


Want to know what’s really holding you back from achieving your goals? Clutter.

I’m not talking about piles of paper on your desk or stacks of business cards you never got around to organizing—although that can be a problem, too. In this case, though, we’re talking about the clutter in your head. You know, that endless list of things that scrolls through your mind continually, and that distracts you just when you’re trying to focus. Read More→

who-holds-you-accountableWhen you have a job, your boss, coworkers and even your team rely on you to get things done in a timely manner. And when you don’t follow through, it affects them—and maybe your long-term employment options as well.

But when you work for yourself, there is no one to hold you accountable. Read More→

How to Create a Branded Resume

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Branded Resume CaptureCreating a branded resume makes your job search much easier. This is a resume that clearly sets you aside from others and sells them on your unique qualities. Today, it’s not a matter of ‘Why should I hire you,’ but ‘Why should I hire you instead of all these other people?’ Your branded resume should tell them that.

Laser Targeting

First of all, who are you targeting and how well do you know them? Creating a branded resume that speaks directly to the hiring manager and their needs is what gets you the job. Get to know the industry and find out exactly what employers are looking for. In your resume, use industry-specific jargon and terminology so that you’re speaking their language. On the Internet, research job listings and companies to get ideas. If possible, talk to someone in the industry to get advice.

Emphasize Your Natural Strengths

Your natural strengths are the things you can do without even trying. They come through not so much in your hard skills, but in Read More→


The Optimist Creed

Posted by: | Comments (0)


I came across an inspirational piece today that I’d never read before. It was written by Christian D. Larson, New Thought leader and teacher, as well as a prolific author of metaphysical and New Thought books. Will Rogers, the cowboy/humorist, used this piece when he chartered the Beverly Hills Optimist Club in 1922. He asked Mr. Larson if the group could use these lines as their credo – they changed the name of the piece to “The Optimist Creed” and it remains their creed today.

Being a natural born optimist, I enjoyed this and hope you do to!

“Promise Yourself” also known as “The Optimist Creed”
Christian D. Larson

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best. Read More→

Cancer Survivor Helps to Eliminate Embarrassment by Helping Other Cancer Patients

Christy Borgeld said “Never giving up and pushing forward will unlock all the potential we are capable of.” And that is exactly what Brenda did. Despite having cancer and undergoing chemo, she pressed forward. She hated and was embarrassed by the treatment gowns and did something about it…she made her own! Now, she makes them for other cancer patients called Hug Wraps.

Brenda Jones felt as if her world had ended when she was diagnosed with breast cancer back in October 2008. Being forced to put on a drab, generic, embarrassing traditional hospital gown every time she went in for treatment only made the experience worse. So with a flash of inspiration — and a crash-course in sewing — she decided to do something about it. Much to her surprise, the kimono-style wrap she designed to give herself some dignity in the waiting room started garnering requests from other patients. Today? She’s not only recovered, but she can hardly keep up with the demand for her homemade Hug Wraps from cancer patients all over the world.
