Learn from Successful People: As a career advisor, I am always looking for different perspectives on how to advance one’s career. Recently I’ve been listening to the podcasts produced by The Wall Street These are interviews with successful women; how they got where they are, and how they invest their money. The ones I appreciate the most are from women who have climbed up the corporate ladder. On the podcasts many CEO’s, entrepreneurs, and other successful women share their stories about starting from an entry level role and making it to the C-Suite. These women tell tales of working hard, handling stressful situations and juggling family and work responsibilities. They all have put the time in, done the work, and have been successful. They have all asked for tough assignments, put themselves into the mix for promotions and yes, they have faced setbacks. Listen to the podcasts by and Barbara Corcoran for interviews of women I have really enjoyed learning from.
Ignite Your Own Hot Streak: While it will take hard work and sticking your neck out from time to time, career advancement is personally and financially rewarding. Doing the work and being strategic can lead you to your own hot streak. I'm hoping it will be the first of many.
