    Comment below – have you ever seen that post in a LinkedIn group asking if you would share their resume with your contacts (and then, yes, they do attach their resume)? My first question is “why should I? What have you done to compel me to speak positively on your behalf?” Just asking me to …

    Personal Branding Weekly – Build Your Relationships First

    It’s not often, even though I’m from Texas, that I can say I spent a few days with some cowboys. But, this week I did. Actually, they were once known as the culinary cowboys (lucky for me – people who know and love their food!) Yet, they were cowboys in other ways. To me a …

    Personal Branding Weekly – Putting Your Best Words Forward

    Let’s all sigh or shake our heads in unison – twerking and selfie all made it into the dictionary this past week.  I know it’s a sign of the times. The challenge is in the business force these days we have many generations working side by side. We see the majority of the posts in …

    Knowledge is not power. Applied knowledge is power.

    It’s true – deep down I’m a geek. I learned how to program in COBOL and FORTRAN. I even received my first prom invite on a punch-card. So, I immediately fell in love with the geeky, quirky team on the television show The Big Bang Theory.  I …

    Personal Branding Weekly – Gambling Your Brand
