Ok, this is kind of fun.
When I lived in Chicago (Geoff was attending medical school from 1990- 1994) I met and LOVED the Morrison family. I served in our ward as the Young Women president, which means I was in charge of planning activities and lessons for girls between the ages of 12 and 18. Sally Morrison’s daughter, Sarah was one of these young women.
So, not too long ago I reconnected to Sally and discovered that she works in the career and job search business and that she and her partners specialize in helping women find work. Their website, Career Partners is a great place to learn more.
Anyway … Sally (along with her partners) wrote a book, called A Taste for Work and I have a copy to giveaway.
A Taste for Work is a very cool combination of career building strategies and advice alongside yummy recipes. So, for example the chapter on Networking is called “Don’t Be Chicken” and features four of the authors’ favorite chicken recipes. The chapter on getting paid is paired with dessert recipes. Totally FUN idea!
Now, as you probably know, this year has been a year of change for me. As I emerge from a difficult period of time, I have let go of a LOT of things that used to feel pretty important. I am prioritizing things a bit differently and approaching much of what I do with a new, refined perspective. This is all good and it’s simply to say that one of the things I’m doing differently is giveaways on my blog. More on this coming soon. What you need to know that is that when I have something to giveaway, I will simply select a winner/receiver from among those comments left the day before. This means I’m not manufacturing comments just for the sake of giving something away. I really enjoy authentic comments that share an opinion or pose a question or draw a connection to me or the topic I’ve written about. I LOVE rewarding those people that regularly interact with me on my blog.
IF … you happen to win something you don’t want, please share it with someone who does want it — sound good?
I’m going to send a copy of A Taste for Work to Lynn Mercurio who commented on yesterday’s post about our 2011 4Experts line-up at Big Picture Classes. Lynn has a website called Stamperosity — I hope you’ll pay her a visit!
And, just for the FUN of it, here are some family photos Sally sent me.
Sally and her husband, Steve.
Sally’s daugther Sarah (crazy that she now has kids of her own!)
Sally’s son, Scott. I remember Scott and thinking, I hope my little Clark grows up to be as nice and respectful! He has.
Amazing how time flies and families grow and friendships remain intact!
Life is good.
