In 1826, a guy named Savarin is credited with coin the phrase “you are what you eat.” In 2020, it would perhaps be appropriate to make a slight revision: the modern knowledge worker is a product of the information they consume.  You are a mashup of what you let into your life. The internet produces 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day so focusing on what really matters is critical. --- Support this podcast:
Think about the brand of coffee that you were drinking 5 years ago. More than likely, it was a well-known brand advertised on TV priced at $4.29 a pound. Then along came Starbucks where you went with your friends to socialize. The coffee was more expensive, but you decided that the experience was worth the price. --- Support this podcast:

Could you increase your success by building more silence into your days? Perhaps somewhere along the way you've heard the story of Beethoven's deafness. From the age of 30, the already hugely accomplished composer began going slowly deaf, until by the age of 45 he was plunged into complete silence and, his biographer reports, a period of despair. Eventually, though, armed solely with the music in his head, Beethoven was able to write his late career masterworks, including the revolutionary Ninth Symphony. --- Support this podcast:

The fact is that most positions are not publicly available, and it’s estimated that 60% of jobs being found through networking.  Plus, you could be using the time applying on-line to develop key skills and market them in a consulting capacity to earn some money before you land your next fulltime job.

The highest paid people in life have one primary and often-invisible skill in common. The reason why certain actors receive gigantic sums isn’t necessarily because they had one breakout performance, it’s typically because they’ve had multiple and can be counted on to have more. The difference between an athlete with a multi-million-dollar contract and one who makes the league minimum is also a result of this one thing. --- Support this podcast:
When someone asks you how much you make at your job—imagine for a moment that that's a common, socially acceptable question—your response probably jumps straight to a number: your salary. In conversations about career paths and industries, we often talk about jobs in terms of what's high-paid and what's not, but there's so much more to what you earn for doing a job than just your salary. --- Support this podcast:
Employability comes down to how well you communicate your value. It also comes down to how quickly you are able to learn and perform on the job. It turns out mindset is more of a differentiator than you might expect. Mindset is more important when it comes to being employable because it determines the attitude you have when you’re applying for jobs and how you’re conducting yourself throughout the interview process. --- Support this podcast:
Job interviews are not a one-way street. You are interviewing the company just as much as the company is interviewing you. While your questions will largely depend on the company and specific job responsibilities, there’s one that many candidates fail ask: “Why is this job open?” The answer you receive will lead to important insights that, should you get an offer, will play a major role in your decision to take the job.

This is a fundamental irony of most people's lives. They don't know what they want to do with their lives. Yet they are very active. Most kids go to college without a clue why they are there. They are floating along waiting to be told what to do next. They haven't seen or thought enough to know what their ideal life would look like. So how could they possibly know how to distinguish good advice from bad? --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. Support this podcast:
Most presenters lose their audience's attention because they ramble and get lost in the weeds.  But if you can be precise and concise, you'll keep your audience (and employers) interested, engaged, and excited. Crafting a 50-word pitch comes in handy for a wide variety of scenarios. In 50 words, an entrepreneur can persuade an investor to look at a pitch deck or a sales professional can persuade a prospect to watch a demo or schedule a meeting. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.

Interviewing for a job right now is a little different than usual. Instead of sitting across from your potential employer and getting a feel for the company in person, you might be calling into Zoom or Google Hangouts. That makes it somewhat harder for you to make an impression on the people interviewing you, and for them to gauge whether you'll be a good fit for the role. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.

Catching the attention of a job recruiter has long been a challenge, but it’s especially difficult right now. Over 1.4 million Americans filed for unemployment. It’s estimated that 90% of job recruiters and hiring managers use LinkedIn to fill their openings, so if you’re looking for work, you’ll want to know how to use that platform to catch a recruiter’s eye. Surprisingly, it’s not as bad as you’d think. The volume of responses to job listings has remained relatively steady compared to pre-pandemic numbers. The more people you have in your network, the greater the likelihood that a recruiter will find you through your connections. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
