Those are some great additional tips, @TexasEx! You’re a trooper if you scheduled a class at 9am when you didn’t have to be anywhere and you’re a night owl! :-O And I agree that was ingenious of your friend that moved out of the mountains…it’s easy to isolate oneself and that won’t necessarily help matters. That was a good move on his part and…[Read more]
It depends on what level of participation you’d like to get out of it. The key is to be where your audience already is. What I like about FB groups is that most people are already on FB, and they’ll receive notifications with each posting. And with FB’s increased emphasis on groups, you’re even more likely to see what’s being posted there. It…[Read more]
Hello, @thisismyusername, and great thoughts on what the team can do! No one is in this alone and there are plenty of experiences that can be shared so it feels less lonely!
The right forum is a good question… I know this site is slow so won’t force that here. It could be a FB group or LinkedIn group if people aren’t fussed about using their…[Read more]

@D8vid… Thank you for posting this story and reminder that we need to believe! If we stop believing in what’s possible, the possibilities will most certainly end. I do hope more people will stop to read this piece as it’s definitely an interesting study.
BTW… I’ll keep telling you to believe! You got this!
These are very true words, @D8vid. There’s so much to think about when interviewing and all the recruiters say you have to put your BEST self forward.

If you doubt the power of belief – even for just one moment – you are forsaking your most powerful ally: your brain. If you doubt that changing a few beliefs can dramatically alter the trajectory of your career, then your career may fall far short of its true potential.
