I’ve lost jobs and I’ve called old employers to see if they would want to hire me back. I’ve usually gotten a response that sounded something like, “Oh, boy would we want you back but we just don’t have anything. Good Luck!” Many of us in the talent game talk about our employee Alumni and […]

I’ve got some great friends in my life. People who support me in my professional field. I’ve got cheerleaders that are on my side hoping I succeed in everything I do. Do you have cheerleaders? Do you have a cheerleader? I think if you have one your life is richer. It’s not about who has […]
