Mindset for Success
The One and Only Rule. Meet job requirements, fill out portal, upload resume. Blablabla. You want to follow rules? Follow this one rule: no resume allowed. Get creative and stand out!
Lead with Love. Pitching a company? Tell them why you love THEM first. Quickest way to instantly build rapport and help you stand out from the apply-with-one-click crowd.
Next Play. Rejection sucks. Failure sucks. But just like in sports, when you make a mistake or the ref makes a bad call, there’s no sense in getting mad about it. Get ready for the next play.
