Meaningful GoalsI am excited about my upcoming speaking event for Slalom Consulting women’s group on January 16th in Buckhead. I will be speaking about “Setting Meaningful Goals: Live and Work with Passion and Purpose”. The start of a new year is the perfect time to set meaningful goals. The key to achieving your goals is to make sure that they are based on your values. To set goals that you are more motivated to complete, attach them to what’s most meaningful to you.

Values are your guidepost to fulfillment. That is why it is one of the first things I have my career coaching clients identify to help them with their career path. Attaching goals to values ensures that you are more likely to achieve them, and once you have you will be that much more fulfilled.

Your values can help you identify your most meaningful talents or passions too, which can also help you achieve your career goals. What are you really good at? What do you really enjoy doing? Focus on what values are really important to you and use these as clues to get your answers. For example, maybe one of your values is to use your time responsibly. That could be a clue that you are good at scheduling your time and are good at being organized. This is a great talent to identify for your career journey. Another example is maybe you value the environment. This could tie into a passion such as conservation or going green. Identifying your values can really help set the course for your career path.

If you’d like more help with achieving career goals, contact us today for a complimentary consultation.

Office PartyCheck out this article about holiday party bloopers, HO HO ‘UH-OH’. It’s a fun article to read, but take it as advice and don’t let this be you!

Here are three tips for any office parties:

  1. Watch how much you drink
  2. Don’t over-share personal information
  3. Remember that you’re always “on”, it’s a party but still a work function.

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. Just don’t forget if you’re attending something work related, keep it professional!

Happy Holidays!

Bad CreditI was recently honored to be featured in this US News article, How to Convince a Prospective Employer to Overlook Poor Credit. There are many obstacles people have to overcome when applying for job search and bad credit is a common concern among job seekers. A potential employer cannot check it without your consent, but this could be seen as a red flag and decrease your chances of getting hired. You’re better off consenting to it and being honest with them. Be upfront with them and mention any possible issues and explain the situation.

Credit is a slippery slope. The reason why people have bad credit varies greatly, so part of the answer lies in why you have it. If it was because you lost your job due to downsizing and you  had to live on credit for a bit while in career transition, that’s one thing. Bad money management, that’s another.

Here are some additional questions regarding bad credit:           

  • Does my income and net worth affect my credit score? No, it doesn’t.
  • What accounts for my credit score? Most of it is your record of paying installment and revolving credit that’s on time. Also included are collection actions, civil judgments and tax liens against you or bankruptcies.
  • What’s one of best ways to improve my score? Pay down your credit card debt, starting with the account that has the highest interest rate. Also, try to use no more than 10% of the credit limit on any account.
  • Do early payments on credit card charges improve my score? No, there isn’t anything on your credit report that talks about when a bill was paid.
