Never Give Up on Your Dreams

Career Makeover Coach

Blog About Tai on Twitter Free Consultation Coaching Options Coaching FAQs Testimonials Contact Resources Reading List CMC Products Events Subscribe to RSS Never Give Up on Your Dreams by Tai Goodwin on October 13, 2009 This past weekend my daughter and I spent some time together creating vision boards. My board was focused on three areas: professional ambitions, personal goals and life experiences. It’s always exciting to me to spend time envisioning what I want my life to look like. Doing this activity with my daughter added a lesson about what we pass on to our children. My daughter’s original vision board was covered with magazine cut outs of dresses – she wants to be a “dress designer.&# A few days later when I had finished my board, I shared some of the highlights with her: write a best-selling book, plant a garden, interview Angela Bassett, take a family vacation, start a scholarship fund…I watched her read through some of the words and quotes I used. Then she went back to her board and asked, “Can I copy some of yours?&# She borrowed some of my quotes but then came up with her own additions: go to college and get a masters degree and never give up on your dreams. Then she drew a picture of her dream house and a few “careers&# she wants try – singer, artist, gymnastics teacher. Watching her get more and more excited with each item she added, I thought about how sharing my vision with her inspired her to think more, see more, and dream bigger. I loved seeing her get excited about her possibilities and potential. Later I wondered what would have happened if I had limited the vision for myself, or what if I had no vision at all to share with her. Have you given up on your dreams, or let situations and obstacles block the vision for your life. Living with out vision is not only a loss to you, but to the other people who would be inspired by you. It could be your children, your siblings, your friends – anyone who crosses your life’s path could be in need of your vision. Remember – the world is waiting for you to show up and be who you were created to be. This month’s mission: Get clear on the vision for your life.

Guest Post: 3 Reasons Why LinkedIn is NOT the Only Resource for.

Career Makeover Coach

Blog About Tai on Twitter Free Consultation Coaching Options Coaching FAQs Testimonials Contact Resources Reading List CMC Products Events Subscribe to RSS Guest Post: 3 Reasons Why LinkedIn is NOT the Only Resource for Job Seekers by Tai Goodwin on December 10, 2009 By Joshua Waldman ([link] Of late, there have been more and more stories of people finding work through LinkedIn. In fact, most recruiters I talk to say they are actively seeking candidates through keyword searches on LinkedIn. So why would a job seeker look anywhere else for their online networking? I think there are 3 reasons why it is a bad idea to corner yourself, as a job seeker, to just LinkedIn. But first let me preface this by saying that I LOVE LinkedIn and have used it for years. I’m not saying not to use it, but that it can be limiting for the unique needs of a job seeker if that’s the only tool. Reason 1- The 1 Resume Problem It is common knowledge that when applying for a job, the candidate should customize their resume to that position. I’ve blogged about the importance of keywords before. Basically, if you want Google to return your name when a recruiter searches a keyword, you need to have chosen the right ones to put in your profile. When going for a job, the hiring manager will look to see if your resume is generic, or if you have really addressed the organization’s concerns. But wait! LinkedIn only gives you one resume. And to make matter’s worse, people are actually uploading a traditional resume to be downloaded from their LinkedIn profile. Once someone get’s control of that document, you have no idea where it will end up. And if you haven’t’ customized it, you could be written off completely. I have several clients who are testing the waters in 2 or more different industries. There is no way for them to cover all bases with just LinkedIn alone. If you are looking to have multiple online resumes, I highly recommend an online resume service called VisualCV. Reason 2: The Boring Personality Problem The first thing I teach clients is to have a very clearly defined personal brand before writing your online profiles. And then when crafting their value statements, to make sure to take yourself from commodity and into personality. There is always going to be someone smarter, more educated and more qualified than you. Especially these days. (Don’t worry, you are still the prettiest/handsomest person ever.) So the sooner you can take yourself out of simply listing your skills and into demonstrating your value, the better. LinkedIn’s framework is limiting. Yes there are now ways of uploading videos and slide-shows. Xing.com offers users many more application features, such as mind mapping, document sharing (free), car-pooling, Wall Street Journal and more. These combine to create much more personality online then ever before. Reason 3: The Unwritten Rules of LinkedIn There are some unwritten rules that make networking with large numbers of people difficult. For example, if you decide to add someone to your network that you’ve never met, they are perfectly encouraged to say, “I don’t know you&# and ignore your request. If this happens too many times, you get a polite wrist slap from LinkedIin. In response to this, LinkedIn Open Networking was created. I would encourage you to join this group and take advantage of thousands of people willing to accept your invitations and help you get out there and meet possible job opportunities. The Best Social Media Training Available After months of presenting these and other powerful job-seeking tips, I’ve been asked to put everything in one place. Finally, I’ve been able to get everything video taped, and I will be making a really big announcement in the next couple of weeks. If you would like to get early access to this exclusive training (and all the great free stuff I’m going to give away along the way), then you should definitely check out this video called, “ The Top 7 Mistakes Job Seekers Make Online &# Joshua Waldman is a blogger and lecturer for CareerEnlightenment.net and has been featured on sites like Careerealism.com, LocalJobNetwork.com and MediaBistro.com.

Taking the Mask of Your Excuses

Career Makeover Coach

Blog About Tai on Twitter Free Consultation Coaching Options Coaching FAQs Testimonials Contact Resources Reading List CMC Products Events Subscribe to RSS Taking the Mask Off Your Excuses by Tai Goodwin on August 12, 2009 Wednesday Inspiration #20 Where the heart is willing, it will find a thousand ways; where it is unwilling, it will find a thousand excuses. – Arlen Price The definition of excuse is “to explain (a fault or an offense) in the hope of being forgiven or understood.&# Don’t be fooled into letting your excuses masquerade as reasons why you shouldn’t take the next step in creating the career you want. Find yourself making excuses? Trying to explain your lack of interest or motivation as if you are at fault? Dig deeper and take a look at your true desires. Are you really willing to take the next step on the path laid out before you? That unwillingness you feel may be an indicator that you are about to step into something that’s not truly meant for you. That you are about to walk a road that leads you away from the core of your purpose. And don’t confuse unwillingness with fear. A willing heart is subject to fear no matter how willing it is and requires commitment and courage to move forward despite the fearful feelings. Publicly, your excuses masquerade as logical practical reasons for why you cannot move. Privately those same excuses become stones that weigh down your spirit. There is freedom in just acknowledging the truth: The excuses come because you don’t want to do it. Admitting that you don’t want to do something doesn’t make you a bad person, doesn’t make you a failure, and it doesn’t mean you are a slacker. You are just honestly acknowledging a truth about yourself. Telling the truth is more powerful than any excuse you can come up with. Telling the truth will liberate you. Making excuses will only add guilt and a sense of disappointment to your load. Eventually you will find your self paralyzed unable to make any decision without a sense of anxiety or overwhelming pressure. It’s why the simplest questions asked of you can spark anger or panic. Unless you get to the heart of why you are unwilling and work from there the excuses will keep coming. Could be that you are unwilling for all the wrong reasons. But until you address it – you will never know. Unmask the excuses, admit you are unwilling, and then deal with the unwillingness head on. Reflection: What are you making excuses for? And why are you unwilling to move? Definition taken from The Free Online Dictionary.

How to Escape a Good Job That's Turned into a Bad Trap

Career Makeover Coach

Blog About Tai on Twitter Free Consultation Coaching Options Coaching FAQs Testimonials Contact Resources Reading List CMC Products Events Subscribe to RSS How to Escape a Good Job That’s Turned into a Bad Trap by Tai Goodwin on November 3, 2009 When you have what most people consider a “good” job, it is easy to feel obligated to stay where you are. After all, you have what most people want, right? Well most people want that. But there are some of us who aren’t satisfied with the good job. We require work that feeds our passion. Work that has meaning that extends beyond a paycheck. And we need work that lends itself to the lifestyle we want in stead of a job that forces us into survival mode: just hanging on, tolerating Monday through Friday and spending the weekend to detoxifying emotionally and mentally. For all of the other working moms and anyone else whose ambition is nudging you on to make your next best career move, here are a few thoughts on breaking free from the bad trap of a good job: The first way to break free from the trap is to acknowledge that it is just not working. Regardless of how anyone else feels or what anyone else likes, the live you live can only be experienced by you. If you are listening to other people, more than likely folk who are afraid to take their own journey, you are selling your self short. Isn’t it time you stopped living someone else’s dream and started focusing on yours. Accept that a good job is something you do not who you are. In most cases a good job requires that you compartmentalize, in some cases becoming two different people. You have the 9-5 full time job person who is really just a shell of who you are. Then you have the after-work and weekend persona where you come alive. I’ve never been good at managing that kind of split. This isn’t about working all the time; it’s about being able to be 100% of you 100% of the time. Realize that making good money does not equal having a great lifestyle. Good jobs, especially good jobs that pay well keep us leashed to a life that is less than what we dream for ourselves. We tolerate assignments, conversations, and mediocrity on a full-basis and still expect to have enough life left over for living. That’s tough. Money allows us to take care of ourselves and our family, but money alone won’t get us to lifestyle we need to feel fulfilled. Getting out of the trap of bad job requires creating success on your own terms instead of settling. It’s living out the experience of finding work that meets the requirements of your financial needs and aligns with your purposed passion. Even when it seems like having both a career you love and one that allows you to earn what you need, refuse to believe that you have to choose one over the other. The good news is that you can escape the bad trap. The greater news is that you are the key to your own freedom.
