You'll never believe what's going on with insurance these days, we've got all the health care reform mandates coming down, and... I was flying across...
In the era of "having it all," is it now possible for women to pursue their own creativity and have a successful career, remain an engaged and fun mom, have a happy family life while still getting enough sleep in your day? Am I being unrealistic here?
Most executives are actually being paid their market value based on their education and experience. So if a company has a beef, my recommendation is they should examine their culture and compensation packages. There is usually a valid reason the employees are leaving.
Most of my companies are in regulated industries, so criminal record or a failed drug test is a deal breaker. Companies don't want to hire people that make bad personal decisions.
As the poet Rumi suggests, we are all like fish driven by thirst. Unaware that we are already immersed in the thing we seek, we flail around helplessly when all we need to do is swim. As I see it, failure is merely the first stage of success. And if we are living an authentic life, happiness unfolds by itself.
I'm happy to be celebrating manufacturing and Made in America. Heck, I do it every day. But I must admit: I get a bit aggravated by politicians who readily treat factory workers and their hardhats as political props but fail to deliver on public policies.
The nation's payrolls rose by only 142,000 last month, and job gains for July and August were revised down by 59,000, suggesting the pace of job growth has slowed in recent months. Analysts were expecting job growth of around 200,000, and the question is how much should it change our views about underlying labor market conditions?
It's a good time to be a tech worker. Between 2013 and 2014, even as job and income growth in the rest of the economy was sluggish, overall employment in technology grew by 3.7% and average annual technology incomes increased by 2.4%.
In Harry Potter, the wraith-like creatures called dementors suck out all happiness and you feel like you'll never be happy again. You may have dementors in your life such as mean people, a frustrating job, or the feeling that you're not enough, that drain your happiness too.
Tesla is only freely allowed to sell cars directly to consumers in six states, four more allow it with restrictions. In many states your government outright bans you from directly buying the best and safest car ever made.

Where are the future jobs? What if I told you that a high-value, high-tech field is poised to explode, and talented experts are desperately needed for the wave of careers that might rival the computer explosion of the 90's? Would you be interested?
Declaring yourself as anything is scary. But if it's who you are, you must own it. Don't avoid it, run away from it, or downplay it.
Do not use company time or resources to complete your side work. Besides looking unprofessional, you also run the risk of violating any agreements you may have signed that give your company ownership of all work created on its computers. That's a legal traffic jam waiting to happen.
I hate to be slavish to rules. When I interview, there's this spidey sense that goes off when things don't seem right. I get lots of attempts at "bait and switch" where subvendors will submit a candidate who will phone screen (under the name of another person), then they'll send that "B-player" in for the assignment. So, you listen. But that's a separate issue.
Oregon already has been producing high-quality marijuana for decades. Our market is valued at $1 billion a year. Now that legalization is happening, more of the marijuana sales are likely to occur on the legal market and the opportunity for growth is enormous.
