I’m breaking the cycle for me and mines
I know you will do it anyway. It’s ingrain in our mind’s eye to be this way with one another. Always sizing up the next (wo)man… Living fiercely ain’t easy, but do it anyway. Move out of that space of comfort and when a muthafucka gives you that look of utter disdain…. Just remind yourself that individuality comes with a price. That price could be dirty looks, a lost job or a broken friendship. Just be ready to lose when you gain freedom.
“Life will pay whatever price you ask of it.” (From ‘Clarity & Purpose’ By Anthony Robbins)

Not Everyone Deserves You: Picking Employers and Clients Who Deserve Your Talents
As your Career Altitude™ grows, your confidence and wherewithal will mushroom as well. In this session we’ll focus on deciding what’s important to you in a workplace or professional situation, whether you work for yourself or someone else. We’ll talk about hard and soft goals, what works for you in a workplace culture and how to bring your whole self to work. We’ll talk about red flags that signal “Keep moving, no trust here!” and how to name and address a fear-based business culture in your own shop. We’ll also dig into the difference between fear and trust in an organization, how to begin a cultural conversation and how to strategize and launch a stealth job search if your current environment isn’t the right place for you anymore.
I’ll leave’em on the block before I let’em block my blessings…. #SUAG
