Labor Day

It's Labor Day...

Today is a day where we honor the collective effort of workers who have contributed to the prosperity of this country. (Personally, I've always loved this day because it was the last holiday before school started.)

So, it's the perfect time for me to start this blog. Why? Because I will use this space to start a conversation with you about work, jobs, the economy -- and what it means for you. I'll be sharing my thoughts about what's really happening in the world of work, to help explain what looks like a very scary and chaotic picture. We'll talk about about jobs and work, traditional and non-traditional employment.

My goal is to help you think differently about work in today's times so that you can generate new options for yourself. We'll talk about how to find work in this "jobless" recovery. (BTW, what exactly is a "jobless" recovery?)

Since this is intended to be a conversation, I would like to hear what you have to say. Please let me know what you think by posting comments and leaving messages. This blog is not a one-way street talk. Thanks.

P.S. Who am I? Basically, I'm someone who has spent over 15 years helping people figure out how to find and get paid for work they enjoy doing. Some call me a career coach, others an outplacement counselor, and still others a life coach. Whatever the label, I help people to connect to what they enjoy doing so that they can make a living doing what they love...based on who they are. Even in this economy. Especially in this economy.
