Inside of You

Do you know where you’re going ? Is it hard to tell ? When life gets rough and you can’t figure out if disappointments mean you’ve failed. They say rejection is just redirection. So don’t give up hope. Take the detour to the path only you know. What’s best for you is within. Follow your…

The Rise of You

To believe in oneself is a start. To go right or left is the decision. Right to the self worth you deserve. Or sway with the old habits you just left? It’s not easy to stand. People are more comfortable with your weakness than your strength. The old you let it all go. The new…

What you know vs. who you know

Lately I’ve been watching hiring practices.
