I remember when I wasn’t allowed to use Wikipedia as a source for papers or research in school. Whether that was because teachers thought it wasn’t accurate or they wanted us to walk to the library to get a real book, it was extremely annoying. Well teachers, the times have changed―Wikipedia is nearly always the top source listed in Google for nearly everything, and it’s updated in a nanosecond. If Wikipedia doesn’t have an entry for a topic, I feel like it doesn’t exist.

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…Continue

I attended an seminar on succession planning today. They made an excellent point that the company's strategies are only one part of the equation for success. The best strategies in the world will not lead to success without proper execution. The company's talent handles the execution. Good strategies + good execution (talent) -> success.

I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard. I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income. Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my…Continue

I stated above that we were beginning a journey. Like…Continue

Despite its’ age, this stop-motion special still appeals to kids today and certainly evokes nostalgia amongst those who don’t believe in Santa any longer (sorry if I just ruined that for you).
There is a time and place for nostalgia and re-exploring our past,…Continue

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National Speakers Association was denied the opportunity to bring his powerful message to a University Campus…Continue

What kind of manager are you? You really have only two options in today’s global workplace. The first one can be equated to the lion tamer in the circus. Is this a fair indication of your management style? If you still operate under the notion that your employees have a job to do. That they have a certain set way to do things and that each employee understands that their purpose is to follow in lack step your demands. As a manger, you firmly believe in command and control style of corporate…Continue
