BGU: Using Your Talent Wisely

Are you wasting your time and talent in a dead end job which is leading you nowhere?

Does the idea of going into work make your stomach reflexively hurt?

You are not alone. I spent the first five years of my post college career languishing in jobs that sucked.  Writing, cooking, and music are what helped me to get through this very painful time in my life. They also helped me to network my way into my dream career.

Today's podcast is all about using your talents wisely to leverage yourself into a better career.

Listen to the Bougie Girl University podcast entitled: "Using Your Talents Wisely".

BGU-Coping With The Relocation Blues

Congratulations, on your life-changing relocation. Just a few months ago, you were going through the stressful process of coordinating a geographic move. You had no idea what to expect from your new place. Perhaps, you moved for a better job, relationship, dating prospects, family, or even an all round fresh start. Now, the newness of your city has worn off a bit. Perhaps, you are regretting ever moving in the first place.

Realize that you are not alone in this feeling. Eventually, it will pass or you will decide to pack up and relocate again. I understand exactly what you are going through. I have been on the move every few years since 1992.

BGU Podcast: A Few Encouraging Words to the Class of 2014

Greetings Class of 2014.

Congratulations on all of your hard work!

I am sure that the past few years have been sprinkled with both victories and setbacks.

Today, I would like to discuss with you the importance of being able to rock your strengths, leverage your weaknesses, and successfully pivot through obstacles.

You need to know that a majority of your future employers  will care very little about where you went to school or your GPA.  They want to know how hiring you will benefit them in the long run.

The pecking order of this fine institution will matter very little once you walk across the stage today. Old friends are great but, it is important to open up your networking possibilities. Solid business and social contacts can make all the difference in your career.

There is a world out there waiting for you to make a mark on it.
