Just like the President gives us the “State Of The Union”, which describes our current situation here in the US. I’m doing the same thing, but I’m doing it for “The State Of Employment” for here in America.
We are currently in the midst of one of the longest economic expansions in history. The number of job seekers are down while companies are growing rapidly and eager to fill key roles.
From the Bureau Of Labor Statistics, our unemployment rate is at a rock-bottom low of 3.9%. The lowest in decades. We haven’t seen unemployment this low since the early 1990’s, with the dot-com boom.
Companies are in a crunch for talent. New hires are being paid on average 5% more than last year and salaries are at an all-time high, while also receiving aggressive bonuses and perks.
With the job market hotter than ever and those in search of a new adventure, now is the time to take the leap. Have you been paying attention?
Why? A readership crisis is really a leadership crisis. And for people who know how to respond, a crisis is just another way of saying opportunity.
In this blog, I will show you that you must become a reader. Because "Leaders Are Readers". I will show you that reading one non-fiction book every month will set you above all others in your career and life.
I’ve been a serious reader for decades: business and personal development, history, the Bible, current events, and even some fiction. I’m a content glutton. It’s part of who I am. And it’s also enabled me to become the leader I am.
I’m not alone. I know very few leaders who are uninterested in reading. And some CEOs are famous for their libraries and wide-ranging interests. Steve Jobs was, for one example.
Remember this: "A...

Companies are fighting for talent.
The Buyer's market is coming to a close. In a buyers' market, employers have the pick of the liter. There is more talent in the marketplace than jobs.
Employers would bring candidates back in for multiple interviews before making a decision.
Not Now! Employers don't have the time anymore.
We have switched to a "Sellers" driven marketplace. That's where there are more open positions than people looking for work.
How did this shift happen? It started with a low unemployment rate of somewhere around 3.9%. That's the lowest rate since the late 1990's. Because fewer people are looking for work, that's an opportunity for you.
Our federal government considers an unemployment rate of 4.6% to represent "full employment" for our nation.
When it's lower, anyone seeking work is assumed to be simply transitioning to a new job.
And that's exactly what is happening. Every...
I believe that we all have been created by God for one “Purpose”. The purpose is called many names: your mission in life, your chief aim in life, your calling, your life’s task and your personal legend. And if we don’t discover our purpose, we won’t, we can never be happy… No matter what!
My story began when I blew my knee out playing major league baseball. I was gifted with a second chance to start over… to discover my purpose, chief aim in life, my life’s task, my personal legend.
I believe we are all going to ask the question, what I’m I here for? Did I make a difference, did I do what I was created to do during this short time here I call, this holiday on earth.
I was inspired by this question, it changed my life, but I didn’t do anything about it. I went back to my old life and I was miserable… something was missing.
I began using that question to...

This video shows you how to ditch the conventional career rules, you'll radically increase your chances of finding something you love.
Five years ago, I made a career change from as a corporate IT director / management consultant to a career coach, advisor, consultant. I took the risk and managed just about every aspect of the transition, because I just couldn’t take it anymore. I hated what I was doing for a living and boredom and drudgery took over. I HAD to go, so I quit… It all worked out, because it had to!
If you’re considering a career change, I’m going to appeal to you to do what I did.
Here’s three uncommon strategies for developing a successful career change:
Step #1. Find Out Your Interest(s). Interests are things you enjoy and have an interest in. Your interests can help you choose a...

How To Get Employed Faster BLUEPRINT
In this blog, I will show you the difference between the old career game and the new one. I will show you that the loyalty contract between employer and employee is over and what you need to do to have a great career.
The old game is life-long employment, the new game is free agency. We have become a Free Agent Nation, where the independent worker will operate on his/her own terms, untethered to one organization and serving the marketplace instead of a single boss.
The social contract between employer and employee is over, loyalty is dead. Theos who understand the new game will be the winners in this new world of work.
