April 25 Music Monday and Announcements

It’s been a few weeks, but we’re back with Music Monday and our latest announcements. I’m *almost* caught up from our travels earlier this month and am excited for a productive May helping young professionals take advantage of the growing job market in New York City and across the country.

Attend The Four Hour Goals Workshop on May 7th

Ready to make a change, including setting concrete goals and achieving them? On Saturday, May 7, 2011, I’ll be conducting Four Hour Goals:  The Art and Science of Reaching Your Goals with Brett Kunsch of Millennial Coach at the Center for Arts Education (across from Penn Station). At this workshop, we’ll teach you tools for setting long-term vision and short-term goals and how to align them to what you do every day and meet success. We guarantee that you walk out with a clear head, excitement, inspiration and confidence that you know how to get started with making things happen for yourself.

When clicking on the Eventbrite, you’ll see that we have a number of ticket options available to meet your needs. This event will help professionals across the spectrum, not just those starting out in their career.

Also, congratulations to the prize winners from our Make The Change You Want Networking event last week. Two lucky attendees- Cathie and Kesha- each won a free hour of coaching with Brett and I, respectively, and another lucky winner- Roseanne- won a book from our bookstore. We hope to have another event later in the spring.

Download our Free Guide: Get Inspired through Social Media

If you haven’t swung by our new home page (it’s why our blog was dark last week) you may have not noticed that we now have a free guide that we’re giving away called Get Inspired through Social Media. It’s a free three-page guide of exercises that you can do on your own with LinkedIn to generate new ideas on next steps you can take with your career. People forget that LinkedIn is more than a social resume, but a database of professionals and information intended to help you make good decisions about your career.

We’ll do more promotion on this, but as a blog reader, check it out and get it before everyone else! This guide will also be featured as part of The Product Factory, run by Michael Port and Mitch Meyerson, sometime this week.

Tax Day Email Only Sale!

Wondering what to do with your tax refund? I am having a two-week sale on some of my coaching products. The details are only available to people subscribed to my newsletter list. When you register for our free guide, you’ll be added to our list.

New Press Appearances

My interview with the Professional Services Journal on using Twitter chats to recruit young talent was published last week. If you’re not in the Twitter chats, why aren’t you? Also, I was added as the latest expert to My Colleges and Careers, which is exciting!

Scholarship Winners

We selection panel reviewed all the eligible applicants and Justin and I did a next round of reviews and we’re ready to announce the winners this week. Stay tuned!
