    Think and Grow Rich

    By Apr 20,2014

      Napolean Hill’s Think and Grow Rich is probably, in my opinion, the best career book ever written.While the subject of the book deals with earning money, the book itself is actually about much, much more.The book deals with how to use your mind to go after the results you are seeking in any area of your life.The area could be family, career, friends, political, or other.There is so much power to the book and its stories it is really pretty remarkable.For me, just thinking about the book gets me “jazzed” because the lessons in it...

    The Effect of a Weakening Economy on the Job Market

    By Apr 18,2014

    In the latter half of 2008 Wall Street and the banking system were undergoing major changes. I remember hearing the stress in people’s voices when I spoke to them in New York, and I believed we had reached a sea change of sorts, in the way the job market and the economy were about to shift. The economy was clearly in very serious trouble. After 9/11, the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates, which stimulated many housing purchases across the land, allowed for the refinancing of homes, and put a lot of money into the economy. This was...

    By Apr 09,2014

    One of the greatest causes of failure stems from people experiencing success in their careers. Whether it is being given a new title, a raise, a position of increased job security, or other success, people often suddenly decide they have earned the right to relax. Security and comfort are certainly desirable results and may be a significant part of achieving your goals. However, when you focus on your comfort or bask in your success, you stop growing. Executives and others who begin to relax or let their guard down may quickly get crushed. They...

    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 Career and Life Is About Getting “Let In”

    By Apr 12,2014

    One Saturday night when I was around 14, one of my neighbors,  a 16-year-old boy who was a well-liked athlete at the local high school, went out with friends to a local party, got very drunk, and had someone give him a ride home.  How drunk was he? He was so drunk he somehow walked into his neighbor’s house through the front door, instead of his own.  The owner of the house awoke, and, greatly alarmed, pulled a pistol out of his nightstand, went downstairs, and shot the boy in the head, killing him instantly. As soon

Surround Yourself with Positive People

By Apr 18,2014

A few years ago I made friends with a guy I met at a self-improvement seminar. It was his second time attending the seminar; apparently he had gotten incredible results the first time around. According to this man, he had lost fifty pounds, had given...
