It also establishes your relationships with yourself, others, and the world.  Confidence comes from the Latin fidere, which literally means “to trust.” Thus, confidence is self-assurance and the ability to trust oneself; it is the capacity to…

Personal branding is an important opportunity to share our narrative, and in today’s increasingly digital world, regardless of your professional role, a personal brand is a must. “Your personal brand is your visual resume,” says leadership coach Ali Dunn. “When you’re putting yourself online, your brand will relay the message of what you believe and what you’re capable of; and where you’ve been and where you want to go.”…

Mistakes Happen. It’s What We Do Next That Matters Most

March Madness is certainly living up to its name this year! Who doesn’t love watching mid-majors get their time in the spotlight! St. Peters, Creighton, South Dakota are all battling schools whose budgets probably match the “supplies” line in most BCS budgets.
