    Never Let an Opportunity Slip By

    By Apr 24,2014

    Everyday opportunities are coming to you–but you  may not see them. One of the keys to success is how you take advantage of each opportunity that presents itself.  The challenge is (1) to see these opportunities and (2) make sure you take advantage of each of these opportunities and do not let them pass you by. The opportunity might call you on the phone. The opportunity might meet you in the street. The opportunity might email you. Regardless of how the opportunity approaches you, it will. Everyone meets opportunities each day. You...

    The Importance of Fitting In

    By Apr 23,2014

    One of the most persistent mistakes people make is not fitting in with their work environments. Fitting in enables you to both get and keep a job. In terms of what it takes to succeed in the long term, fitting in may actually be more important than your skill level. This little-known observation is lost on many people, and overlooking this can result in unhappy and unfulfilled careers. Conversely, being aware of this often results in very happy and fulfilling careers. The problem is that it is often the very best people and those with the best academics...

You can constantly be improving and you can take yourself to another place if you have the ambition to do so. This is a wonderful thing. And the fact is, you do have the ability and the power to do this. You can be whoever you want to be in this life. I have met so many extraordinary people in my life. I have met

    Finding Jobs Where There Are No Job Openings

    By Apr 17,2014

    I’m a businessperson. As a businessperson, I find I get a lot of phone calls from private equity companies and so forth throughout the day. I enjoy getting these phone calls, not necessarily because I’m looking for their investment, because it can come with a lot of strings attached. Rather, I’m interested in learning about their perspective of business. They tend to call about the businesses I’m running that are hot at the moment and doing well, where the revenue’s increasing. People in the investment banking business and private...

    You Need Connections to Make the Most of Your Career

    By Apr 22,2014

    Several years ago I went to a seminar on public speaking and publishing held at a hotel near the Los Angeles Airport.  From what I remember, there were two ticket levels for the seminar—a ”standard” level and a ”VIP” level.  The second level, a VIP level, allowed you to sit up front and go to lunches with “important people” in the publishing industry.

The Importance of Your Sense of Self

By

Once, when I was around 17 years old, I was sitting in a car with a friend of mine, waiting for another group of kids. My friend was very wealthy and by this age had already inherited several million dollars–and he was very arrogant about this....
