Keep Up The Faith, When Things Go South

At times, it gets really hard to stay “on” and feel awesome. I know you might be dealing with any of it: a job loss, breakup, rejection, delayed promotion, negativity at work, failure, divorce, a serious illness, or anything worse.

The Secret to a Happy Life

I've been flying free for the past couple of months. No job. Only teaching my MEGA Assistant University classes, taking the odd project here and there, and turning down a number of good offers (on paper) just to decompress a bit from my last role and really focus on the direction I want to sprint in next.
