In this age of digital technology and growing economy, everyone works hard to be able to achieve success in their careers and businesses. They spent most of their time working, doing meetings, negotiating, writing proposals, and so on, to reach all the goals that they have set for themselves and for their businesses. Everyone wants to give their families good and comfortable life and for them to do that they have to get a job and perform well. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to work hard, but becoming a workaholic is a different issue. These days, so many professionals have become such workaholics that they’ve forgotten how to live a normal and stress-free life. Yes, it’s such a fulfillment to get recognized in your workplace, but it’s a pity that you have no life after working hours. As a working professional, you have to learn the value of work-life balance. It’s not true that, in order to become successful in your career, you have to compromise your personal life. If you really want to live a happy, contented, successful, and stress-free life, you only have to master one thing: BALANCE.

Is Your Personal Brand Wrong? by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas

Read more at http://www.careerealism.com/personal-brand-wrong/

Source: www.CAREEREALISM.com

Does your personal brand need an update? A careerist said to me, “I need your help. I need to REBRAND my resume.” Okay. So, I was expecting, “I need a resume like yesterday.” Perhaps, “What is resume branding?” But, an outright “rebrand” — well! If I wasn’t already sitting… Is Your Personal Brand Wrong? Why A Rebrand? You see, this careerist had developed a strong brand; earned a reputation as a ‘department savior.’ The problem? Most of the job offers were coming from companies in need of an immediate and truly challenging rescue. (It is a logical result. Don’t you think?) The issue is this careerist no longer wishes to come in and organize mayhem. Now, it is not this person is not willing to ‘roll up their sleeves’ and work hard. But that their most prominent qualifications, the brand that was exuding from resume shouted, “give me your poorest, most chaotic department, with little or no employees, and non-existing resources—I like that!” The solution? A rebrand.
