Practice may not make you perfect, but it helps

This blog is generally awesome (yes, I said awesome). It is practical, insightful, actionable. Someone sent me this post (link) recently – and it applies all new and scary situations. Including – Job Interviews, Performance Reviews, Presentations, Networking Events – your Intro, etc., etc. Practice – Practice – Practice. Not just in your body, but also in your mind! http://www.buildingpersonalstrength.com/2010/02/mental-rehearsal-can-you-ingrain-skill.html

Another awesome post – a fabulous companion piece to my post from Tuesday on Establishing Trust for Success – is this one:  http://www.buildingpersonalstrength.com/2010/04/six-ways-to-be-strong-for-relationships.html

I have only recently discovered ForbesWoman  – which is Forbes for women.  There are great articles on all kinds of things here.

Finally, if you haven’t checked out TED: Ideas Worth Spreading, do so.  Perhaps not every day, but visit it periodically.  All manner of brilliance exists there.

As always, I encourage you to post your suggestions below.

Client Stories

Lori took my old, tired, out of date resume and transformed it into a resume which got results.  In transitioning from owning a business back to the corporate world, Lori asked the tough questions to dig out all the relevant skills and accomplishments which would catch the eye of a potential employer.   One of the first employers to receive my new resume and customized cover letter (created by Lori) called me for a phone interview, followed by a face to face meeting, and finally offered me a job twenty-four hours after the interview.  I'm convinced I would not have even been able to get my foot in the door without my new resume created by Lori.  As I told my wife, retrospectively, spending the money to work with Lori was well worth it.
