RESUME NOW!

Fall Workshops Are Here!!!

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”–Lao Tzu

 

First, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the horrific act that occurred in Las Vegas last week.  I pray for all of the families that were affected.  While we may never feel totally safe in a large arena or activity, we can’t let this scare us.  That’s how we let those aimed at destroying our way of life win.  We should remain vigilant, but also continue to go about our daily lives.  Remember Boston Strong.

As a coach, I often find my clients struggling to define their personal brand.  Most folks find themselves either with a wealth of experience and knowledge but unable to parse it effectively, or limited skills and having to only focus on those pieces that demonstrate the most impact.  While branding encompasses more than what can be explained here, one of the most important ways to communicate one’s brand is the resume.  Whether you are in the market for a new job, or just wanting to keep your profile up to date, regular checks of your resume are essential.

This fall I am planning to offer a few different skills workshops, the first of which will be a FREE Resume Workshop on Wednesday, October 25th at 12 noon (EST).  Myself, along with resume writer Gary Glickman, will share our expert advice and some resume examples/edits during the session.  Here is your chance to get your resume looked at.  We will be accepting resumes and choosing 3-5 of them to go through live.  However, you need to be on the phone for the call.  To register, please send me an email by clicking here and if you wish to have your resume considered for review please remember to attach a PDF copy.

Motivation Now Book
My book, Motivation Now! has been available for 1 month now.  Thanks to all for your positive comments, and thank you to those who have purchased a copy.  I have sold out of all of my initial books.  I am planning to place another order to replenish my supply.  Several people shared their desire to purchase books for the holidays, for their team, clients, family, etc.  If you are interested in ordering books, please let me know your quantity.  I offer a discount (from the Amazon price) to $10 per book.

GOOD NEWS NOW!

“You can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” -Ronald Reagan

This month, I am writing to share several pieces of good news.

First, I finished writing my very first book, Motivation Now!  I hope to launch the book shortly and I can let you know when it is ready to go.  In the meantime, I am looking for those interested in writing a brief 2-4 line endorsement/testimonial.  If you get it to me by 7/31/2017 it will make it in the back pages of the book.  Please let me know so I can arrange to share an advance copy (click here to email me).  I know that some of you did offer to read an earlier piece and I am just waiting for your endorsements back.  The full launch will take place in early September.  That is when you would put your review up on Amazon and on Linked In.  I will send back your endorsement with a reminder and instructions on what to do.  Thanks to all in advance for joining my launch team; I truly appreciate your support.

Second, I am again Championing and Moderating the Transitioning into and within the Medical Device Industry on August 16th at Regis College in Weston 5:30pm-8:30pm.  This is the 11th Annual Event.  The panelists are top notch and we will have special guests sharing advice.  Please click here for more details.

On a personal note, I hope that you are keeping cool and enjoying this beautiful weather.  We just returned home from Orlando, Florida after a relaxing vacation.  We went to Universal Studio’s one day, and then spent the rest of the week relaxing on the lazy river at Orange Lake Country Club.  We played mini golf, scaled rock climbing walls and went on a hippo slide as well as other water slides.  It has been a good month.

Again, if you want to participate on my book launch team just let me know.  I would appreciate any help.  I am not concerned with how many books are sold it is more of an awareness campaign.  The kindle version will also be available for posting your reviewThanks in advance for helping me achieve my goal of authorship.  I always appreciate your comments on the pieces that I send. I hope you’ll consider sharing my book on social media; currently I’m only active on LinkedIn.  Finally, I plan to donate proceeds from my book to my favorite charity.

HEROES NOW!

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”  -Pamela Vaull Starr

By now you have probably realized that I really enjoy sports, the teams and the players.  It was truly my honor to meet with and get my photo taken with “Big Papi,” Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz.

I felt like a mushroom next to him.  He is really a nice guy and he talked frankly about his life, the other players and all his past coaches.  He is my favorite ballplayer and I could always count on him to make contact with the ball.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes.  We have sports heroes like “Big Papi,” we have wartime heroes and we have heroes in our own families like our dads and husbands.  Anyone that knows me knows that my dad will always be a hero and a role model to me.   A very Happy Father’s Day greeting to all the Dads on this listing.

The point of this post is to share: Who are your heroes?  Who do you look up to and admire?  Who has traits and characteristics that you strongly believe in?  Who is a role model in your family and in your community?

Dream deep, for every dream precedes a goal.  That was the Red Sox and after 86 years (since 1918) they finally won a World Series in 2004.  Then they did it again in 2007 and they won a third World Series in 2013.  I believe that any of this is possible if you want it bad enough and if you follow your heart.
