How to shift your narrative

Imagine we’re taking a walk together. You’re showing me the path you walk every day, pointing things out to me. You’re telling me – this is the root I step over, there’s the tree I admire, and here – HERE – is the rock I trip over. Every damn day. We stop and look at …

My #1 resumé tip (it’s not what you think)

Last week I presented a series on confidence in the tellent FB group (if you’re a woman figuring out how to pursue your career and life ambitions, you have to check out this amazing community). When it came to having “guts” I suggested …

Playing for prizes

I didn’t grow up playing video games, but I saw enough Nintendo at friends’ houses to glean this: you ran / hopped / glided through different obstacle-filled environments, intentionally running into things, in order to score points. …right?

What will you do with 2000 hours per year?

I want to tell you a story. When I first graduated from my undergrad business degree and joined a boutique consulting firm, my time was my offering. Since I was green, I believed my only value was my willingness to work, literally, whenever. Like on weekends, Friday nights and holidays. I remember taking down instructions …

5 prompts to GO FOR IT

Lately I’ve been meeting closet dreamers. This is not a Marie Kondo reference (although, YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST). Closet dreamers are people with dreams for their careers and lives that they haven’t quite admitted to themselves, let alone the world. They have visions of what could be, but no plan to pursue their authentic …

How to know it’s over

In my work, I see a lot of people needing and wanting to cut ties with a job, in order to start something new and move forward. But often, they stall out on the decision. Because ending things can be so hard. Especially when you’ve invested a lot, or when you expected a different outcome, …
