Career Tip for Week 1 in Sept: Let Your Light Shine ~ The Unique You

I want to begin with the inspiring words of Nelson Mandela: "And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."  

This month I'd like to look at how to leverage your uniqueness to your utmost benefit. Sometimes, fears or barriers stand in the way of leveraging your talents "your light". We will consider that and also look at how to leverage you and your uniqueness so that you are comfortable talking about your own strengths and shining your light for the world and for work. And, we will take a very practical course so that your light shines forth "in a good way" on your resume. 

This week be aware of where you shine. Just the fact that you lose track of time, when you are engrossed in something, is a big clue for you. Take note of when you are so engaged in something that time doesn't matter! Our light and talents shine so naturally sometimes that we are not conscious of them, just engrossed in what we love doing. More to come next week. Have a great Labor Day! Marianne
