Through the use of job postings - social and traditional, automated search, and analytics, our product will help you figure out your best channels and also define where you are wasting money. It is a great company with a great brand and I love working there.
That was me being me, me being authentic. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love my job... that's transparency...
Sometimes, my authenticity, my transparency gets me in trouble and I say or write what I think is important and true, but in that truth, I have hurt others or have caused others to doubt my sincerity or professionalism. This only hurts me, it doesn't make me a barracuda or a force to be reckoned with. But in those moments are lessons. And given that I am a perpetual learner, you can bet that not all my lessons are found in books or blogs - many are in the car or office next to mine. They are in partner relationships and they are in the eyes of clients or friends. It would also be a safe bet to assume that these are lessons that don't need to be re-taught.
They are usually learned, good and hard.
If we fail to actually learn from those life and business lessons, with what are we left? Typically, an empty office and empty wallet... Success is not found without a considerable amount of failure. Failure has been my back-stabbing friend many a time. I prefer smiles from success... But then, don't we all? And if all we experienced was success, how would we learn humility, hard work and how sweet the reward truly is?
Bonus Track this week found me in Austin for several days and home came just in the nick of time. I was tired, missing my family and ready to get back to the real work that makes up my weekday.
And ready for a little success.
If you happen to be heading out to ERE Expo held in San Diego March 28 - 30, I'd love to chat or just shake your hand.
