Living Your Purpose

In January 2011, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) launched and one of the shows offered is a Master Class.  It’s basically famous, wise, insightful people who pass on their knowledge and wisdom to viewers.  Folks like Diane Sawyer, Simon Cowell, and the queen bee (Oprah) herself sat down and passed on some really great advice.

Improve Your Circumstances

See those little bones on top of her skinny feet? I used to have those. 🙂 “Improve Your Circumstances”. This is what we all want, isn’t it?  From the guy making $100,000 a year to the person going to school and hoping for a job when they graduate.  We all want to improve our circumstances – it’s the American way.  The problem is, most folks don’t know how to do it.  Do you get a job or start a business?  It’s like standing on your tiptoes on the edge of a cliff – both seem risky and are heart pounding.

HR Manager: A Tour of Heaven and Hell

One day while walking downtown, a Human Resources woman was hit by a bus and was tragically killed. Her soul arrived up in heaven where she was met at the Pearly Gates St. Peter himself. “Welcome to Heaven,” said St.Peter. “Before you get settled in though, it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we’ve never once had an HR manager make it this far and we’re not really sure what to with you.” “No problem, just let me in” said the woman. “Well, I’d like to, but I have higher orders. What we’re going to do is let you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven and then you can choose whichever one...

How to Get Hired by a Small Business Owner

Yahoo! asked for an article about what we look for when we hire.  Here is the article they published – enjoy! ** As a small business owner, what I look for when I want to hire an employee is different from what a national chain or corporate business wants from an employee.  Here’s exactly what I look for when I am reviewing resumes and hiring a new employee: 1.  Experience that fits the job .  Unfortunately, small businesses don’t have a training budget or training team to get a new employee up to speed, so I look through… read...
