Boomers Going Solo!

Shira Harrington

The concept of job stability has been evaporating over the last two decades as business competition has tightened and pension programs have vanished. Consider starting your own business. Virtual technology tools have nominal costs and social media has made promoting your business a snap. If you have a passion to serve and want the freedom of unlimited earning potential, now is the perfect time to launch.

Got Branding?

Shira Harrington

Starbucks. Google. Nike. You can envision their logos in your head, right? These recognizable brands all promise an experience based on a unique value proposition (UVP.)  They have determined what sets them apart and they promote that brand…consistently. As a job seeker, what’s your personal brand?  In sea of competition, you need to clearly broadcast your value to the right audiences.

Knowing WHO you want to serve, HOW you want to serve and even WHY you want to serve, can help you focus a targeted message that compels your target employer to say, “YOU are who we need to hire!”
