LinkedIn endorsements -- pros and cons

Good article Shawna. As a career coach as well, I agree with your points about endorsements and recommendations - but overall am learning and noticing that the more time a job candidate spends writing a cogent LI profile, joining relevant groups, posting and getting recs and endorsements, etc the more likely he/she is to get noticed by recruiters.

Lighten the load with kindness

GREAT wisdom, Kathleen. I'm reminded of my favorite quote from a Jewel song, "In the end, only kindness matters." And since TC has posted a response, I can recommend his new book release, Fearless Leaders! He speaks to kindness and open hearted fearlessness at work. (Not your exact words, TC, but the essence....) By Trina Hoefling on 2015 03 03

Lighten the load with kindness

Kathleen, love your perspective and this statement, "Most important, when you respond to people with empathy and kindness, you retain everyone’s dignity—including your own." The Dali Lame once said, "My religion is kindness and compassion"! By TC North on 2015 02 27

Personal finance lessons from "Downton Abbey"

Helen we talk to all kinds if investors. The female investors tend to be more cautious about who they are talking to and what are the qualifiers. The typical male investor rushes right in with the scenario often leaving the " who are you" at the end of the conversation. BTW I am British and love the show too!

The top 10 emotional whammies of divorce

Make no mistake, most of the laws of the land favor women in divorce cases. It is common and ordinary for the law to consider women the wronged party, a needy victim and award them the bulk of the assets from a marriage and/or a common law marriage. After six decades of this practice what we have in our society is a large segment of older single women who own houses, cars, investments and other assets they have obtained from one or multiple divorces. Just a reminder that a cougar is a predator. By Steven Shepard on 2015 02 26

Direct sales outlook 2015

Lemongrass Spa has been such a blessing to our family. Our family had many health issues in the past and it took 10 years of searching for natural products that are true to what their label claims before we found Lemongrass Spa. Heidi Leist is an amazing leader whose heart truly cares for those individuals the products will come in contact with and leads a life of integrity and true leadership. It's a honor to be a part of such an amazing opportunity. By Crystal Baddorf on 2015 02 24

Pot banking: What are they smoking?

You are correct, the Fed would have to allow them to use the clearing houses for checks, ATM's and wires and probably SWIFT for international as well. Bank run solution - keep a liquidity reserve to be used to unwind positions should a bank run occur or do not invest in anything longer than 90 days. The last true "bank run" in this country happened in the 30's under very different circumstances. Although, if you had all your depositors stoned at the same time... hmmmmm, may be real issue here.... By Paul Fogle on 2015 02 23
