Consciously Choose Better Work-Life Balance
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
What kind of balance do you want to strike between your professional and your personal life? Harvard business blogger Ron Ashkenas wrote an article in December in the Harvard Business Review that a key to minimizing regret regarding your work-life balance (or lack thereof) is to consciously choose the tradeoffs you're willing to make to achieve personal and professional success. Absent that, we're likely over the years t...

Many years ago as a young, single professional, I got this idea that I should put down roots. Although I was a carpet bagging television reporter moving from city to city every two or three years, I found a condo in Tampa that I loved and couldn’t afford. Though I was likely to leave town before a year or two was out, I really wanted to buy it. My dad happened to be coming for a visit so I took him to see the place. As we st...
THE RISE OF CORPORATE GLOBAL AND DECLINE OF CORPORATE AMERICA
by Yvonne Brown - May, 2011
As a child in Jamaica I grew up in a time when coming to America was the ultimate dream. People from all over the world coveted the American lifestyle with its manicured lawns, beautiful homes, and happy healthy children playing in the yard or riding their bikes in the neighborhood. Now all of that has changed and many Americans are moving to foreign lands just to find work, some are struggling to make a living,and feed th...
How Is Your Customer Service?
by Christine Hassler - May, 2011
“Here is a simple but powerful rule – always give people more than what they expect to get.” – Nelson Boswell This week I designated a day to catch up on my errands and to-do list which involved interacting with various businesses. I was aware of how pleasurable my interaction with each business was based on the level of customer service I received. On several occasions I encountered unhelpful, unfriendly or apathetic ind...
Beware of the Overshare
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2011
I’ve noticed a workplace trend lately – the overshare. It seems that people work so much that they consider colleagues like close friends or family members. And when they’re diagnosed with a long-term condition with an acronym like PSTD or ADHD or become pregnant (for example) it’s the most natural thing in the world to tell officemates immediately. My advice is to think twice about this. Don’t get me wrong – I’m sure yo...
Career Help: Fail Forward and Fail Often
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
This is a continuation of my response on the Wall Street Journal article, written by Dilbert, creator Scott Adams, How to Get a Real Education. Fail Forward. If you’re taking risks, and you probably should, you can find yourself failing 90% of the time. The trick is to get paid while you’re doing the failing and to use the experience to gain skills that will be useful later. I failed at my first career in banking. I failed...
How to stand out on your resume
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Almost every resume I see reads like a laundry list of “stuff” the person has done at work. The problem is that everyone applying for the job you seek probably has a similar list of “stuff.” What makes you stand out? Why are you special – why do YOU deserve to win an interview and the job? It certainly isn’t because you were “Responsible for” something or that you were “Recruited to” do something. A prospective employer wan...

by Nan S. Russell - May, 2011
Since she'd been referred by a good client, I rearranged my schedule to accommodate a phone meeting for what she described as a "pressing decision" about a potential business endeavor I had experience with. The day before our appointment, the call was confirmed and it was verified that she would call my office at the arranged time. When the time arrived and no call came, I was surprised. Fifteen minutes later, still no call...
10 Dollars and A Laptop
by Steve Farber - May, 2011
Last weekend at the always inspiring SobCon event in Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet Greg Hartle, the itinerate business consultant and philosopher. He’s on a mission to visit 50 states, collect 501 stories, and demonstrate that it’s possible to make a living starting from scratch–even in this new, challenging (to say the least) economy. He started his journey with ten dollars, a laptop, and the clothes on his bac...
