If companies want to retain the employees they've invested time and money into training, they'll need to adapt to the expectations of this newest generation of workers.

Email introductions are a poorly understood art and are often done too hastily without careful thought. Making introductions the right way can be the best way to help two people and create a lot of value.

The art of conference calling. Wait. You didn't know it was an art? It's definitely a skill worth building if you're running a modern business, and it is as much an art as any other form of presenting. Whether you want to blame it on technology and the internet, or the costs associated to flying, or even the huge slowdown in flying America took after 9/11 that forced us into doing more calls, the conference call has become a huge part of doing business and you can't escape it.
When did invisible social media become the indivisible job deciderer? I thought a resume, experience and references made me an attractive candidate. I had no idea that my popularity in the ethosphere impacted how well I might perform for an employer in the real world.
Even when I was making $200 a year, I considered myself a success. I was more lost than I'd ever been, sure, but I was in a more honest place than I had ever been also. I might have had to re-learn how to live, but I was also learning for the first time what it meant to be alive.
Either way, I'm going to do my best to smell the roses along the way, too -- and call it success every time. Those fragrant breezes will come and go and never be safely thus. They are diffident, and iffy, and fleeting- just like success itself. But that's as good as it gets. Maybe knowing that, and really accepting it, is the safest success of all
