Ever feel like you’re stuck and you’re not sure which way to turn? Or maybe you reach out to friends and family, but don’t feel you receive the input that will really help you move forward. I get it. For most of my life, I’ve been alone. I’ve had to make large, life-changing decisions without the benefit of someone else who was equally invested in the decision. Whether it was quit my job, sell my house and move across the country, or seek counseling for a toxic work situation in which I found myself, I’ve been there. And, just because I’m single, doesn’t make me any more ‘alone’ than you. I’ve worked with men who were laid off, but hadn’t told their wives and kids because they felt some sense of shame (which by the way, they shouldn’t have). So, no matter the circumstance, we do find ourselves alone at times, having to make a decision and not having a clue how we’re going to find resolution.

Nearly everyone knows they should have a LinkedIn profile. They may spend the 30 minutes to upload a profile photo, enter some jobs and maybe complete one or two other fields. Some will even take note of the profile strength LinkedIn provides on your profile screen. Few know to go beyond this. To really use the power of LinkedIn for networking, job searching, or anything else professionally, you need to do more. But take heart. I teach all of my clients how to use the power of LinkedIn to reach more people, to attract more recruiters and to grow their career with as little as 10 minutes a day. Ok, so enough of my meanderings, here’s what you should do.
It can sneak up on you and happen when you least expect it. Yes, you’re stuck. In all aspects of your life, you find yourself stuck at times. You’ve been looking for a new job, but not making any progress. In a job, in a poor performance, or with a difficult boss. Or maybe you’re wondering if you’re in the right career at all. These are all situations I love to help people with. There are many qualified people to help you through the more sticky life situations, but when it comes to career situations, it calls for someone who can relate, having been in most of these situations, but also someone who has made a career out of helping other people love their career.
