Career Fueling Exercises...

A few months ago,  after my husband and I voiced solidarity in recharging our work-out routines, I met with a humbling experience, followed by an epiphany. After transitioning from my morning wake-up routine and proudly lacing my tennisshoes,  I grabbed my Droid and headed downstairs to fulfill my...

Does a Fish Know When It&#...

The other day while out on my sailboat, I noticed a good-sized catfish bloated and floating belly up. I think a lot when I’m sailing. Sometimes very deep thoughts, sometimes not so deep thoughts. I’m not quite sure which category this thought fits in, but I wondered aloud as I watched the...

Your Job Search Judgment...

Colin Powell once said to a group of graduating 2nd lieutenants, “Good judgment comes from experience; experience comes from bad judgment.” Making the point, of course, to remind these young officers not to be too hard on themselves when they make a mistake. Just take a lesson from the mistakes...

Yesterday, I was invited to participate in a Six-Figure Hotline event with Dave Opton, ExecuNet founder and author of Six-Figure Learnings.

Recently, a friend of mine agreed to climb the mast of my boat to...

What Chuck Norris and Resu...

“When Chuck Norris enters a room, he doesn’t turn the lights on, he turns the dark off.” There are literally hundreds of these Chuck Norris-isms floating around the internet. Another one of my favorites, “Chuck Norris runs Vista Windows on his Etch-a-Sketch.” And, of course, we all...

Career Strategies: Being B...

Resume and social media issues abound: grabbing at cliches (e.g., “I’m a people person”), mirroring your colleagues’  content, shying away from touches of color, graphics, charts or graphs, avoiding the personal exposure you fear will occur if you sign up for social media accounts...

Facing the Fear in Your Ca...

Intro by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter In what I envision at least a 2-part series on “Facing the Fear in Your Career Search,” my husband, Rob, starts us off with a riveting story on how our journey into a storm created one of our most memorable experiences this summer (perhaps ever). Likewise, in...
