Update to yesterday’s post: full article available

March 23, 2010

I didn’t realize how quickly the Wall Street Journal turned the free view to the Dow Jones article I mentioned yesterday — to a ‘subscriber’s only’ view.  If you missed it – here’s the full text.

In the News (Dow Jones): Planning Key to Unretired Life

March 22, 2010

I am in the news today with my UNretiredLife story. Caroline Van Hasselt from Dow Jones Newswire interviewed me for the “Getting Personal” column.  It’s been picked up by Wall Street Journal (and perhaps others).

In the News: Going for the Silver!

March 12, 2010

Do you need to go for the Gold to achieve success? Is Silver good enough? How about in the workplace? Do you need to go for that top job? Can you grow, flourish and be a valued employee without rising to the top?

Me thinks not.  By all means going for the top spot works for many and is a great ambition. But it’s not the only route to success. There are many ways to build a satisfying, successful career path without ascending to top dog’s spot.  The Globe and Mail invited me to comment on this issue for an article that’s in today’s paper. Check it out! 

How about you? Where have you said no to a promotion but yes to professional and personal fulfillment, growth and success — at the same time? Would love to hear!

To a TGIM work-life no matter where you are on the corporate ladder!
