Hey Homies! How’s your summer going? These are the days when the pace at work moves slower and you can breathe a little easier before the hustle and bustle picks up again come fall. Hopefully, you’re having a blast with friends and loved ones, getting in some traveling, o...

When it comes to networking, you’re a corporate commando. You have no problem cold calling or emailing a complete stranger, introducing yourself, and making a connection. In person your hand shake is strong, eye contact game impeccable, and your elevator pitch is matchless. Networking is your str...

You aced the interview, calmly rode out the nerve-wrecking wait for the offer, and then breezed through the negotiation process to land that new job. And finally, it’s here – the first day.

 We are deeply saddened about the death of one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time, Patricia Head Summitt.  As its head women’s basketball coach, Coach Summitt successfully led the University of Tennessee for 38 seasons..  During her tenure, her teams won 1,098 games (making her the winningest coach in college basketball history… yes more than John Wooden, yes, more the Coach K, yes, more than everybody).  She coached 8 national title teams, and her teams played in 22 ...

We find that Sunday evenings tend to be a time of dread because everyone starts to think about Monday. But we also find they are a good time to think about the upcoming week as a whole.  It’s also the time that we use to prepare
