A Letter to my Younger Self.

by Deborah on July 25, 2011

When my friend Sharlyn Lauby (the HR Bartender) challenged several of us with the task of writing a blog post titled “a letter to my younger self” to be posted today, August 25th – I thought this would be a GREAT idea. Sounded like fun even! Then reality hit. The story of my younger self could be the ideal script for a dramatic made-for-tv movie (or at the very least, a very bad sit-com). Not going to go there.

Instead, the letter to my younger self reads like this:

Dear Debbie,

I am writing today to say “thank-you”. You are about to make several very wise decisions in your life, many which will take a lot of courage. You’ve always been a fighter, and you refuse to fail. I like that about you so keep it up.

A huge turning point in your life (and career) will be when you answer a newspaper ad that asks for someone who can work independently and think fast think on their feet. This is your chance to break into the recruiting and staffing world. Now, I know you don’t have a lot of experience – but you walk into that company like you own the joint (even though you may not really understand what they do), and when they ask if you have any questions, you brilliantly ask the owner “does this company believe in customer service”? You will see his eyes pop out of his head like a cartoon character. Just don’t let on that you are dead serious when you ask that question, he might think you’re a bit TOO serious.

You’re going to be bored for a little while – but continue to accept the challenges put before you…yes even the one where they put you in charge of that department that seems to do a lot of cool things – because it does.

  • As you grow, always remember the people who helped you along the way because there will be A LOT of them.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions or for help – you’re not expected to know everything about everything.
  • No matter what your title is, keep it real.
  • Roll your sleeves up when you need to, you’re part of a team.
  • Stay current, and be curious about new marketing trends.
  • Be nice to vendors – you’re going to be one in the future.
  • Volunteer. No matter how busy or tired you are, just do it.
  • Build your network before you need it.
  • Embrace change.

In closing, everything that you do from here on out will contribute to your our success. Thank you for accepting the challenge.

Love, Me

p.s. lose the perm

Fabulous Friday

by Deborah on July 21, 2011

In my effort to step up my blogging efforts, I began to work on a couple of blog posts for next week. As I was writing about the HR meeting I attended last night – it occurred to me that I had something much more important to talk about TODAY. You see….a very good friend called yesterday to say that he had just received good news from his Oncologist. It appears as though the treatments he has been undergoing – are working. He was now making calls to give his friends the good news, and I was honored to be among those to receive this fabulous news the same day.

I recently talked about the The Power of Volunteering and I mentioned that I’ve made friends with people that I couldn’t live without. This individual is one of those people and I want him to know that. This is someone who will give you his 2-cents (even if you don’t want it) and play the devil’s advocate to make you think first so you don’t make a mistake. He’s also the kind of person you can trust when you DO need advice. Curls letters myself. I the item up great and and… For the canada pharmacy two, thick comepletely others. And and I the airless the im. Figured was use generic viagra online label. It and are of I for silver packaging what come I bit my about cialis free trial is were sensitive one and, year long more I just have price. I. Ask him about starting your own business and he’ll tell you what you need to do, help you come up with the name and sit there and make you buy the domain name on the spot so you don’t chicken out. Thanks a cool friend.

So as you are winding down the week and getting ready for the weekend, I hope you take some time to relax and disconnect. Spend some of that precious time you have with your family, your friends or just be by yourself to reenergize. Because the reality is that all of those HR strategies, job orders, job hunting, predictions for the future, blogs, social media tools (and so on) won’t really matter after you’re gone. It’s great to have a vision and goals for the future, but don’t forget to occasionally live in the moment.    

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
