I recently posted a lengthy thought on Facebook about leaving toxic situations or relationships. I got so much feedback, comments, and private messages, I felt compelled to share this with others as it relates to one’s professional life. If you find yourself in a toxic work environment that is affecting your health, well-being and sense […]

My Generation X Confession When I made my most recent career change, I was also studying in an intense masters program. I managed to make a smooth transition and continue to get bigger and better consulting projects all while coaching and going to grad school. Being 37 and 38 in grad school surrounded by people […]

Changing jobs is no small act. Our jobs, though part of our lives, directly impact our happiness, health and financial stability. If you are not the type to go start your own business (or are not in the financial position to) finding ways you can control your job satisfaction and career growth can be a […]
