    Everything is Negotiable

    By Jul 22,2014

    Life is Negotiable Something very few people truly realize is literally everything is negotiable, and it’s important to think of your career as a chance to negotiate the best possible deal and circumstances you can for yourself. Your career, your pay, your hours, your health insurance, your parking, and everything else related to your job–all of these things are negotiable.

    Employers Want to Hire You

    By Jul 17,2014

    One of the most important things for you to realize when looking for a job and you see a position advertised is this: the employer wants to hire you. If the position is advertised, the employer is actually desperate to hire you. When I say ”desperate,” I mean the employer wants you yesterday, not today. The employer is losing money, or has a need that is really “calling out” when they start advertising jobs. A few years ago, I was running a company that was growing like crazy. We couldn’t hire or bring people...

    By

    The Most Important Person You Communicate With is Yourself

    By Jul 19,2014

    “The mind can make a heaven out of hell or a hell out of heaven” -John Milton Several years ago, I was home after graduating from college and I met a guy who was friends with my girlfriend’s brother. He had graduated from Yale University a year or two before and was driving a truck all around Detroit delivering meat to restaurants. He typically drove this meat truck from 4:00am until noon each day. He got paid in cash at the end of each day by his boss. He’d been the first person from the public school he had attended to go to...
