The holiday season can be a challenging period to find motivation or time for work in between company parties and vacation time. Human resources teams can especially feel busy this time of year as they are tasked with end-of-year responsibilities like bonuses, vacation time, and maintaining company…Continue
Every year it’s the same, people professing to be a whole new them in the New Year. Whether it’s losing weight, tightening the purse strings or stopping a bad habit. It gets boring. The truth is, December is the perfect time to reflect and a great time to look at…Continue

New Year’s just around the corner and this is usually the time when we bring a bunch of New Year’s resolutions. We decide to ditch unhealthy foods, go to gym, do things we haven’t done in past year, and we also decide this is the year when we’re finally going to make a step forward in our career.

I’ll never forget how I was picked to be the social media expert at my first company. It was 2008 and I was working at a startup called VisualCV.com. I was hired as part of the sales team then moved to marketing when we realized we did in fact need a marketing team. Oh, startups.

Another candidate for another position also successfully submitted his resignation today, and set his start…Continue
Once a year something magical happens. The world stops. Stores are closed, and when you go outside, you can hardly hear any traffic. I really look forward to this time of year every year.
The world is frantic. We are always in a hurry and there is always something to be done. Our lists are always long and it seems like there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done.
In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we often forget what the holiday season is all…Continue
I titled this blog first Monday primarily so I would be forced into finishing it and publishing it today. I've been meaning to blog for months now, and still have several unfinished works in progress sitting in my RBC drafts. So, in the spirit of my new year commitment to blog weekly (and to test the theory that I work best under pressure), I figured I'd start this Monday Musings blog about nothing in particular and everything in general.
2012 was EPIC for me, both…Continue

I looked back and pulled the Bow up to my ear and pulled back the string as far as it would go, it was a bright sunny day in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with my heart and mind tuned to nature as never before for 2 weeks of fun. As I pulled the bow string back I let fly the arrow that found it's mark…Continue
