Why Do Some Women Succeed in Their Careers While Others Fail?
There are three simple reasons why: Limited access to key information, lack of an experienced support team, and no positive mentor to dry their tears, help them get back into the career game and tell them everything is going to be all right.
At Career Vanity, you'll receive all three things: relevant knowledge from a former recruiter, career coaching and mentoring from a successful 3rd generation entrepreneur and positive encouragement from a relentless comeback kid.
Let me introduce myself…
I’m a third generation entrepreneur, with a low tolerance for foolishness, who helps people become unstuck in their careers.
I can help you dream bigger, think bolder and believe in yourself more than you've ever imagined.
Whether you are looking to kick start a new business, remove energy vampires out of your inner circle or make a career change; I help people become the CEO's of their own careers, and grab hold of their life's passion with unmitigated gusto.
Consider me the behind-the-scenes cheerleader that will help you kick your own butt when you need a wake up call and applaud you to victory with my 20 years of career wisdom and 20 years of mistakes.
Yes, I said mistakes. I’ve made plenty of them.
For example: While I was working on my Masters in Biochemistry at Emory in 1998, and preparing for my 55th attempt to get into Medical school, I had a brilliant idea. Much to my mother's chagrin, I decided to use my expensive Spelman liberal arts degree to become an American Airlines (AA) flight attendant. (read about this flight attendant escapade here)
I will teach you to never fear your mistakes. Readers of Career Vanity will learn to embrace them.
Most innovative, rule-breaking, ambitious and successful people who want more results and growth out of their lives have failed hard. It’s the entry ticket to a wonderful and fulfilling life. Together we’ll learn from these failures, and vow to never repeat them.
This website is not about rules. Although we will break a few career standards.
I'm not going to tell you to buy a blue interview suit, go to college to get a six figure job or marry a rich man and play the lottery to become wealthy.
Instead, I'll give you up-to-date tips to help you find a job that you love, teach you how to start a business that doesn't fail or even how to negotiate your dream raise without becoming a humble supplicant and unnecessarily kissing someone's hind parts.
How should you use Career Vanity?
This site should awaken the inner job coach within you. Use these articles as a crash course on career tips, job skills and entrepreneurial insight that will tickle your funny bone, and make you say, “I can do anything.”
I promise to do the legwork and find information to help you achieve your goals. But you will have to work and believe in yourself the way I believe in you. All I ask in return is your promise to pass on the information you've learned here to 10 women you know.
What will you learn here?
My articles give women the encouragement to: build their dream careers with humor and dignity, the ammunition to fight bitchy bosses, backstabbers and negative people and the know-how and courage to turn failure into success.
I invite you to use my anecdotes and life lessons to push past your doubt and limitations while you earn every minute of the blood, sweat and tears required to maintain success in the 21st century.
As frequent visitors to my blogs and websites will tell you, I give people access to my past challenges and victories, so that they become even more of a winner.
Above all Career Vanity is here to inspire you and bring knowledge and amusement to your hectic and challenging life. When women collaborate and help each other, we can enrich the feminine circle and get to the top of the wealth and abundance mountain together.
I have no doubt that the hand that rocks the cradle, can be the employee or entrepreneur that rules the world.
