Secrets to Success...I got them!

There truly is a "secret to success". 1. Get up early 2. Work Hard 3. Find Oil

There are tons of people who always complain about their job, the long hours they work and that they need more hours in the day to get things done. Having been tired of hearing co-workers complain and whine I realized I had been one of them incognito! It’s just that I did my whining (and my wine-ing) at home. Don't misunderstand me, I loved my job and the people I worked with, but you just can't hire…

The whole idea of auctioning off these edible artifacts is getting ridiculous. After spending less than 20 minutes on ebay, without even searching for these items, I came across a piece of "very sad" toast, another nutrigrain ET, a bbq steak the shape of Australia, yet ANOTHER nutrigrain ET, a penis…

Gerry Crispin and Blogs

I had a few drinks with Gerry Crispin

this evening. He was in Toronto doing work. Every time I get a few

hours with him, and lately it has been quite a bit, I always walk away

with a sense that anyone can really do anything or that anyone can

change the things around them.

I usually have to hold myself back when talking with people who know

things about things I am interested. Once I was at a wedding and I… Continue

No sleep for me in vegas.

The Kennedy Show is great and I did not go to sleep last night. I hung out with Gerry Crispin till 4am and then made it through till now.

Yesterday there was a discussion on blogs and the one thing that really struck me was that when the question was asked how many people in the audience are thinking about starting a recruiting blog, way more hands went up than last year when the same question was asked.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

I have had some great…
