get ready to write your own ticket

What I’m about to share with you shouldn’t be a secret anymore. And I’ll warn you right now that it’s going to sound unbelievable. Every time it’s happened over the years, I’ve found myself thinking: “Another one?!? I get to see another one!?! How can this be?” And if these weren’t the stories of my…

how does the world see you?

Of course you can always ask for feedback when you want to know how the world sees you from whomever, but there’s a caveat to the question – wouldn’t you rather know how the world sees you at your best? ‘At your best’ is your ‘money maker’ or ‘hire me’ quality – something about you…

something for when self-doubt visits you on your career path

Believe. It’s one of my favorite words. Ever. The word itself used as a mantra brings me into the present and I use it to help me remember the big picture of life for those not so inspiring days. (Hey – they happen to all of us. And to ignore that or deny that is…

40 ways to create more career possibility for yourself especially when you think it’s not possible

Think of these 40 as a starter kit. The purpose of this list isn’t to judge yourself or others for their (or your own) method. Though you you know and I know that your ego will do that anyway. Your ego doesn’t like hearing that possibility exists when it thinks there are none and certainly…

9 writing prompts to help you figure out what’s not working in your career

I once interviewed Lynda Monk and in our interview she said something that I saw for the first time hidden in plain view. It made something that I usually do seem and feel different. Before I tell you what she said, I’m going to metaphorically press “pause” for a moment and tell you about a…

career sabotage is real and so is what your body knows

It’s useful, preferable and a good thing to acknowledge when you don’t feel safe. And I’m not talking about your life necessarily being fatally at risk in a literal sense, but in another way.

23 options (for optional thoughts) with happy career implications

Thoughts are options. And all thoughts are optional. However, options are what seem to be missing from a dissatisfying career. And an unfulfilling, dissatisfying, exhausting career is the result of rigid thoughts. And let me tell you (because I’ve been there x 100) – nothing, absolutely nothing hurts more than a rigid thought trying to…

what should you do to make your career better?

As an expert, professional and human being I don’t believe in “shoulding on yourself.” Ever. Like. Seriously. “Shoulding” on yourself is actually a debilitating way to go about your life. Because I don’t know if you’ve ever really noticed, but take note now – the voice of “should” is not kind, nor compassionate nor wise….

whatever your work, let it be how you care (for you + others)

“Not ALL people can or will follow their passion even if they could find it … Someone’s still gotta take orders at McDonald’s, haul the garbage, answer the phones, install the cable. If all of us were destined for ‘living the life we were meant to live,’ nobody would do those jobs!” If you think…
