Five Words You Don’t Want to Be Caught Saying After a Layoff
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Nov, 2009
Today a long time friend was laid off “unexpectedly” – she was given no notice and turned in her company computer and phone on the spot.

Is Your Brand the Ultimate Narcissism?
by Joshua Waldman - Nov, 2009
My grandmother, who is 86 this year, always told me that, “humility was for people who could afford it” and when I was 10, I “couldn’t afford it”. She wanted me to be more confident, brag a little bit. I’m sure she was just a proud grandma, and I love her for it.

Entrepreneur, Visionary, Virtually Synonymous

by Kris Parfitt - Nov, 2009
“My intention is to meet five people at this function who I really connect with and that two of them eventually become clients.” My friend was impressed while somewhat doubtful of my declaration. My actual success that night was that I met ten people with whom I connected, but I didn’t find the opening to give all of them my business card. It’s not that I’m shy - by nature I’m quite the extrovert. But I have a stigma about net...
