Why outsource, when you can just learn the trade yourself?  That’s what Roshelle Stovall Lee asked herself and then proceeded to do just that.  She took her God-given skills, molded them, practiced them and turned herself into the one stop shop that absolutely follows the adage “I can do anything”.  But she is quick to point out, this is HER story, you have to develop your own.  It’s episode #49 of Think Tank of Three podcast.

I’m going to admit up front, that this is a bit of a rant. The beautiful thing about having a platform is that you can use it to share what peeves you in the hope that it provides a lesson to others. Or if it doesn’t, maybe it’ll provide some comic relief.

No matter what you do for a living, you are in sales. Everyone is selling. Always.

You’re selling an idea, a product, a persona, a brand, yourself. And it’s incredibly important to, if not understand how to do it well, then at least don’t do it so poorly that you embarrass yourself.

For the people who give sales a bad rap, I would argue that most of them are lazy. Sales is about the relationship and being lazy in relationships will fail you professionally.

A new year always feels like a great time to hit the reset button. That is until we turn the page on the calendar and already start to feel behind!

I’m sure you’ve considered hiring a management consultant when you were faced with a business obstacle that was difficult to solve on your own.

But management consultants aren’t always the best answer.

You’ve heard of the phrase, “fake it ‘til you make it?’”

In an article from the Harvard Business Review, the authors reveal all of the ways consultants live by this motto. Some consultants are sold to us as experts even if they necessarily aren’t in reality. Here’s why instead of hiring a consultant, an agile coach would be a better investment for your company.

When I was young (and sometimes still now), my mom would say, “Kathryn, the Reader’s Digest version, please!”

I loved to tell stories.

And I loved to talk to my mom. Still do.

Reader’s Digest is the largest subscriber-based magazine in the world. It features short stories, jokes and advice. SHORT stories. I loved reading it when I was younger. But I couldn’t for some reason, tell a story succinctly like the “Reader’s Digest version.”

It’s easier when you write. When you write, you can go back and edit over and over and over. I highly recommend that. We’ll talk about that in a moment.

You’ve been invited to interview for a job that will elevate your career. You have the credentials and know you can make a difference at the company. Now, you just have to prepare. There’s a lot of advice out there on how to best approach this important meeting, and it’s overwhelming.

Or is this you?

You’ve been interviewing and interviewing… but no call-backs. You have the experience and knowledge — but something is stopping you from landing your dream job.

Or is it this?

You have the years of experience, you’re ridiculously brilliant, everyone says you should be in “his job”… but you just can’t interview. You won’t apply. You won’t leave and go for the opening that would have you managing a larger team at your competitor. You’re stuck. You’re afraid. You’re afraid of the interview, putting yourself out there… the possible rejection.
