Like many, I have been in the unfortunate situation of abruptly finding myself without a job. I don't mind telling you, in the moment, it's a completely demoralizing experience. When this did happen to me, there were a few steps I took so I could move forward productively:

1) I was gracious -- I thanked my employer for the opportunity and offered to expedited any needed transition. Why was I so nice? I don't believe in burning bridges... see more

Sometimes when things are tough it can do a number on your self-esteem, but don't let that negativity creep in!

Here's to YOU!

Keep up the good work and have an amazing week! : )

You are doing a great job.

I was unemployed for about 5 months in 2015 and very unsure about what I wanted to do next. I was spending 50-60 hours a week researching and applying to jobs. It took a while but I found a great job and it put my career on a new trajectory.

But burnout is real even when you're unemployed and I was worn down. Here are my tips for treating yourself with kindness while you're unemployed now that I'm on the other side of it.

  1. Set daily time... see more

I feel unworthy to be either one of these titles
I’m just doing what I’m called to do. I’m more of a servant (passion for assisting others).
Anyone else?

Lately I've found a small habit that helps me feel better about my day and more productive overall. Every morning at work, I list out three things that I am thankful for, and three goals that I want to accomplish that day. I like doing this this way, because it gets me in a good headspace for the day and lets me focus on doing what's important without being overwhelmed. It's a good feeling when you see you accomplished all three goals, and even... see more

I've had great success with doing a version of this exercise at a previous job. We called it the Grateful Book and... see more

Over the weekend, a family friend who has been hunting for a new job asked an interesting question: when is the best day and time to submit a job application?

This got me thinking. I’ve always tried submitting my application as quickly as I was able, never considered day or time of the week could made a difference. However, I had a hunch that hitting the apply button on Mondays or Fridays could increase my chances as hiring managers spend time... see more

In my opinion, I think it is a good idea to apply to jobs on Monday in the morning and the reason why I say that is... see more

An interesting read from my morning today. Turns out the average age of successful entrepreneurs is 45. And last year, a Harvard Business Review article showed the exact same thing! While people might think that youth leads to innovation, the data shows that experience and career maturity are what actually create success. The message to me is that we need to value the skills people develop over years of work, and that those struggling with... see more

thanks for sharing! though i'm not sure 25 was ever the actual age for entrepeneurs.
