August Updates – Getting Back to Work

Have you been enjoying your summer? I sure have! It’s all about live music, picnics, and hanging out by the lake for me. What do you love most about the summer?

That said, I also have been booking a lot of speaking gigs, producing different kinds of content, and starting some new projects. Fall is going to be a HUGE push so stay tuned. And please let me know what you are working on. I am happy to help if I can.

NEW – Interviews from the Other Side of the Desk
I know that when I was looking for a job I always wanted to know what was going on in the HR recruiter or hiring manager’s head. (And so do my clients.) Here is the first of a series of audio and video interviews I will be doing – Other Side of the Desk: Julye Berry. Julye has more than 25 years of experience in all aspects of the human resources function and gives the inside scoop on what not to do, and what a successful candidate should do when interviewing for a position. 

Interviewed on The Shut Up Show with Berni Xiong and Phil Gerbyshak
Berni and Phil are two of my favorite people. It was such a joy to do this video interview with them for The Shut Up Show. I share some not-so-pretty lessons learned in the hope that others can benefit. Do you have your own business? You should definitely watch Catherine Morgan Helps Us Get from Point A to Point B – Episode 20.
