What People Are Saying

Working with Cheryl last year was one of the best experiences in a long time of pursuing my professional development. She was able to help me define my visions, focus my efforts, and guide me towards an efficient and successful job search. Even though she has not worked in my field, she provided me with plenty of tailored resources and taught me how to use social media tools for professional networking and growth. Even after finding a new job I continue to work with her on my career development goals, because she thinks out of the box and gives advice that consistently brings me closer to the 5-year goal that she helped me formulate. Cheryl always appears to be one step ahead of your thought process and is extremely talented at asking the necessary questions so you can reach your own conclusions as to what seems best for you. She is motivating, supportive, optimistic yet realistic, and one of the most positive forces you can have on your side while trying to reach the next goal.”

Susanne Ebling

Cheryl has been a pleasure to work with and she gets results. I found a new position, in a tough economic environment, through LinkedIn using the strategies that Cheryl taught me. I was in the job market actively looking for over six months. I was not using social media before the pilot program with Cheryl and was having very limited success. Once I started using social media based under Cheryl's direction, my success rate improved dramatically and the number of interviews increased resulting in multiple job offers. I highly recommend Cheryl as a career coach.

“I had been struggling with the umptenth rewrite of my resume for weeks, unable to get it to speak out for me. Then a mutual friend recommended Cheryl. I didn't call her right away since I stubbornly insisted to myself that I could do it without help. Finally, I realized that I needed a new set of eyes and some new thinking. Cheryl's response knocked me over. In a few short days I had a powerful resume that is exactly what I was looking for as well as a cover letter that I can easily customize. Cheryl delivers!

Richard Floyd

Cheryl wrote my resume, and after weeks of sending out my old resume and getting no phone calls, as soon as I got the first draft I sent it to a few job listings and was 5 for 6 in return phone calls- yes 5 for 6!!!..after no responses in the first 2 weeks; Cheryl's work made that much of a difference!! I know anyone looking to move on from where they are working and needs that GREAT resume should contact Cheryl immediately.”

7 Sure-Fire Ways to Fail at Your Career

Are you afraid of failing at your career?  Failing is actually pretty easy.  It’s success that’s hard.

Read the tips below to see how simple failing is to do.

1)      Don’t learn from your mistakes. You are guaranteed to fail at your career if you learn nothing from your mistakes.  We all make mistakes, but learning from them helps us to grow.  Not learning from them ensures that we will repeat the mistakes again and again.

2)      Never take responsibility. If everything is always someone else’s fault, it means that you are not mature enough to take responsibility and then learn to do things differently.

3)      Stay the course. It’s true that staying the course can be a good thing, but it is only a good thing when you are on the right course in the first place.  If you are on the wrong course, and you don’t have enough humility to admit that you are on the wrong track, you are certain to remain on the wrong track if you don’t reevaluate the situation and make some changes.

4)      Accept mediocrity. Being mediocre may seem like a good career strategy, but it can cause career failure down the road.  The reason that it may seem like a good career strategy initially is that you do enough not to get fired.  But the flip side of that is that you also don’t do enough to make a significant contribution.  You can’t ever look back on your career with a sense of satisfaction if you know within yourself that you never gave your best.

5)      Be afraid of change. Perhaps you have heard of the secretary years ago who gave her boss an ultimatum.  He could choose her or the computer, but she was not going to learn how to use a computer.  Of course you know the end of the story.  The computer won, and she was out of a job.  Now that we are so totally dependent upon computers, the secretary’s reaction may seem ridiculous, but if you are afraid of change, you could end up just like her.  As they say, the only constant in life is change.

6)      Don’t believe in your own abilities. If you don’t believe in you, who will?  We all have areas in which we excel.  Make sure you know what you’re good at, and believe that you can do well in the areas where you are gifted.

7)      Live in fear. This is a great way to fail.  Fear can be truly crippling, and it can prevent you from moving forward and achieving what you really want.  If you want to fail at your career, being bound by fear is a great way to accomplish it.

P.S.  If you want to be successful in your career, make sure you do the opposite of the tips above.
