My Regular Appearance on LOVETALK with Babz Rawls Ivy Today on Blog Talk Radio

Greetings People!

Here's my appearance on LoveTalk Radio with the fabulous Babz Rawls Ivy - she is AMAZING! She is a blue print for how to move forward through hardship and pain, and how to truly self examine with tenderness and truth. I just love her and her spirit! Please find the time to check her out, both her blog and her radio show.

Meanwhile, after a bit of a hiatus, here's my most recent appearance. This is the beginning of a series I'll be doing on Babz show on employment where I'll be discussing the practical - job search strategies, resume writing/building techniques, and interviewing skills - as well as how to stay positive during these difficult times. In today's show I talked a little bit about everything, but mainly how to stay focused on the ways to stay positive, reminding people that what you do is not who you are - basically a take on yesterdays blog post here. Please have a listen, and I hope you find something helpful and encouraging.

Is Opportunity Knocking?


I'm starting a new series on job search strategies, tips, and advice covering topics such as creating a great resume, interviewing techniques, salary negotiation, what hiring managers are looking for, and how to work with temporary staffing agencies, just to name a few. 

So many people are finding themselves in situations where they're in transition - they've just been laid off or there's one pending; they've been searching for a job for what seems like forever now, are recent college graduate, or now find that they must get back into the job market after a significant life change.

First, try your best not to see just the negative in the situation. Being without a job isn't always a good thing, especially in today's economic however, you can make it one. How? By recognizing the opportunity in it. This is truly a chance for you to 'write your own ticket' in a manner of speaking. Yes, that's sounds corny, I admit it. But take a moment and really think about what you want to to with your life, and and how you can make a living from it. Where there's a will there's a way.

So you love to travel or have always been interested in doing it, but you have a husband and 2 kids under the age of 12, along with their host of after school and extra curricular activities. So what do you do? Give up on that love? NO! You investigate the travel industry - it's in's and out's, and research what piece, or pieces, of it that both intrigue you and are do-able for you and where you are in your life at that moment. Then you work towards that. For example, maybe start a travel blog about the places that interest you, or places that you've been already.

Please, don't think of a job loss as self loss. Yes, it can be devastating, but it doesn't define your worth nor who you are. Who you are is not what you do. Only YOU define YOU. Do your best to see this as an opportunity to change your life and be who you want to be, who you were meant to be.

Stay tuned....
