Your Working Legacy

So often people in miserable jobs use their kids as an excuse not to make a move. After complaining about their job, their boss, the company, the endless meetings which produce no results, and their lack of filling meaningful at work – I suggest they find something else to do!

Many times they explain to me that they have children to support – as if I was telling them to quit their job and go home and become a bum. But I have started asking them “do you want your children to go to college, get a job they hate, and feel stressed out and meaningless?” Their answer is ALWAYS “of course not!”

But the truth is – this is very likely what your kids will do – after all  – it is what you have taught them!

What are you teaching yours?

8 Steps to the Perfect Title!

It’s all in the title.  That’s what determines whether someone will start reading your latest article or flipping through your recently published book.  I no longer have any doubts about this.

How to Prepare for a Successful Career

Screen_shot_2012-09-11_at_12.54.32_PMTwelve years of school. This is where most of us really start our careers and prepare to enter the job market.

In theory, twelve years of basic education prepares us for our career or entrepreneurial ventures – but in most instances all it does is prepare us for college – or yet another four plus years of education geared at career preparation.

In both K-12 and college (or other type of advanced education) we are told how the world works and how we are to work in the world to succeed. The end goal of it all – minus the broadened education to survive in society – is a job. Ok, sometimes we call it a career, a business, or even an entrepreneurial endeavor, but let's be clear – they (the teachers and those who in their infinite wisdom counsel you whether you ask for it or not) always talk in terms of getting a job and going to work.
