Welcome back to the blog! As a continuation of Networking Basics Pt.1, I’m back with 3 things that you can do today to help you expand your network.  Saying that, let’s get straight to it!

Use your current network! I mean this in more than one way. When was the last time you reached out to someone outside of your immediate circle? I'm sure you've heard people express the importance of stepping out of your comfort zone. I think the same is applied when it comes to the people you surround yourself with. Your best friends and family members don’t always have all the answers (and let's face it, some times not the best advice or influence. For example, telling you to play it safe by not taking chances on yourself) So I say you...

Oh, the power of networking. I know, the thought of networking and ultimately trying to make connections with people you don’t personally know may bring fear to many but let’s face it, as a young professional or entrepreneur your journey is going to be a tough one without the right people in your network. In a digital age fuelled by instant gratification, many people feel that because they have many likes or followers, they have a great network. However, when it comes to your network and the people you surround yourself with, especially in terms of business, it is definitely quality over quantity. For example, I have clients who boast about having 500-1000 LinkedIn connections but when it's time to find a reference or arrange an inform...

Happy New Year! New Year... New job?? 

If there’s one thing I learned on my career journey, it's the importance of maintaining positive professional relationships.

These relationships (or lack of) can definitely affect your opportunities in the future.

Today, I'm providing you with a quick and simple guide on what steps you should be taking when you’re ready to move on to your next opportunity.

September is here which means many people are heading back to school to hit the books. September often represents a fresh start, kind of like a secondary New Years. A fresh start with a renewed mindset after a summer break filled with patios, mimosas, beaches and BBQs. If you’ve been out of the classroom for some time,this is an opportunity to gain some new information to enhance your skillset. 

Whether you want to advance in your career, transition into another industry or just expand your knowledge, lifelong learning is going to be one of your vital keys to success. Learn-to-Earn. Whether it’s a course, certification or a refresher of some sort, the more you know keeps you up to speed with competition in the world of work. I acknowled...

Whether you’ve been working for some time now or you recently started a new position. It can be very easy to get over consumed by your tasks on the job that you end up taking on bad habits.

Maybe you're always eating at your work station, putting in overtime or even taking work home with you. Outside of this workload you're always too tired or constantly on the go with other life responsibilities. If this sounds like you I have a serious question… When was the last time you took some time for yourself?

It's so easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle that comes with being a self-sufficient adult that many of us forget to check-in with ourselves. Quick. Ask yourself this…
