The Year of a Mindful Career: Meditate Happy

If you think happy thoughts, they will come your way. Too often we spend time trying to figure out the wrong or criticizing others so that we feel better about ourselves. Perhaps what someone is wearing is too bold for your taste, or you perceive another’s quieter disposition as a personal affront or something I’ve […]

The Year of a Mindful Career: What Color is Your Aura?

Okay, now things are getting spooky. But if you’ll journey with me for a moment, perhaps you’ll gain some insight. An aura is an invisible, cloud-like substance that surrounds us.

If you’re willing to give to others, you’ll gain so much in return. Many people know this to be true from experience and the understanding of goodwill.

I Hate My Job!

If I’ve heard this once, I’ve heard it a million times. Why do we get stuck in jobs we don’t like, or work for organizations that aren’t good fits? Today, I had a conversation with a new client which started with “I hate my job.” My heart aches for this very talented young woman. It […]

The Year of a Mindful Career: Communication Reflection

According to success expert, Brian Tracy, “Your ability to communicate effectively with others will do more to make you successful than any other skill that you can develop.” That is powerful stuff.

Negotiate Your Worth

Too often we fail to negotiate our worth. Only 57% of men negotiate their salaries, while only an alarmingly 7% of women negotiate theirs. This equates to leaving big bucks on the table. With a 3% annual salary increase, you could lose an average of 20K every five years. Whether you’re ready to ask the boss […]
