Hello to Ms. Career Girl readers everywhere!
It has been quite a while since I’ve written a post on my very own blog. Time for an update!
Ever since I got my Kindle several months ago, I’ve been in a personal and career growth spurt of sorts. I’ve been totally hooked on books like The Tipping Point, The 4 Hour Work Week and A Woman’s Guide to Successful Negotiating. In addition to reading career development books, I’ve given several presentations to college students about online marketing and personal branding. And it is perhaps because of getting out of my comfort zone and utilizing the tips I’ve been reading about that I’ve had two VERY awesome career opportunities presented to me (neither of which are remotely related to my college degree). More on that stuff later though.
Why am I telling you this?
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I believe that the more one puts into their own career and personal development, the more they get out of it. I’ve always believed this, but now I’m SEEING it. Those little seeds eventually bloom into very exciting opportunities. And in an economic environment of selective hiring and easy firing, young professionals need to set themselves apart.
Are leaders born or made?
We’ve all heard this question before. Each of us would probably answer it differently, but there’s no doubt that learning from successful leaders, authors, professors and entrepreneurs can fast track a young professional’s ability to lead, think, communicate and make decisions. If there’s ever a time in your life to focus on soaking up as much leadership training as possible, it’s now. Your twenties sets the tone for the rest of your life. What are you doing to make yourself a more intelligent, efficient and valued professional?
Well, I’ve found a fun, cheap and no-travel-required way to get direct access to the world’s best selling authors, professors and Fortune 500 vetrans. And I love this platform so much that I pulled a few strings and negotiated to get you a free YEAR if you sign up by March 31, 2011.
