One of my biggest regrets is staying far too long in a job that just didn't fit me. I tried really, really hard to make it work and get ahead. It wasn't until I realized that if you are actually in a job you love, it's not tough and you don't have to work so hard to succeed. You will be more successful when you are in a career that fits you and makes you happy. You don't have to push and push and push. When you find the right career it just fits and is so rewarding and fulfilling. So I … [Read More...]
This post is written by Carrie Wynne, the author of 10 Ways to be Deliriously Happy – How to Live an Inspired Life. Graduating college is a special milestone, one that should be rewarded with lots of great career opportunities that align perfectly with your newly achieved educational credentials. Unfortunately, that notion isn’t realistic in today’s still struggling economy, in which employers are wary of making high salary offers to new grads. Some aren’t hiring at all, making for … [Read More...]

If you want to be successful in your career, I have a little known secret for you. It's not what you do to get ahead, it's how you think. Through my years of helping women find careers they love and succeed, I have seen many clients really close to getting their careers unstuck BUT they all have one thing holding them back, their mindset. You can't get your career unstuck if you are not in the right mindset to get your career unstuck. If you take all the actions but don't work on your … [Read More...]

Hello friends! So I have a very good reason for being a little distracted from blogging lately. I am excited to announce that Baby Girl Runyan joined our family three weeks ago! I have such a new respect for all moms as I am finally coming out of my three week fog of being a mom (especially working mamas that pump...holy moley!) I am so very excited for this new phase of my life and can't wait to get back to being a working/blogging mom after I enjoy this much needed break with my new … [Read More...]
Overwhelm is the most common battle that job searchers face. Where do you even start? Do you update your resume, sign up for a networking event or search for jobs online? You surely can't do everything at once, especially if you are job searching while still working a full-time job. I know what it is like because I have been there before. I was often overwhelmed by all of the job search sites, networking events and people that I wanted to meet and I barely had any free time on my hands to … [Read More...]
Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi has long been one of my favorite books about networking. This book encouraged me to start my 2011 networking challenge and really helped me get past a lot of my fears about networking as an introvert. I also listed this book as one of my Top 10 Must Read Books For Every Professional Woman. So this is why I was ecstatic to hear from the publisher that a new version is coming out this month AND that I can give away three copies here on the blog. … [Read More...]
