My Toughest New Years Resolution: Taking My Own Advice!

  Have you ever noticed that some professionals give great advice which they don’t seem to follow? There are brilliant physicians espousing healthful diets who are obese, esteemed Psychologists with multiple failed marriages, admired spiritual leaders who act selfishly and politicians who lead double lives. Most of us who seek mentors find these inconsistencies unsettling. Is there value in advice if the teacher doesn’t live by his lessons? In my opinion, the lesson is distinct from the teacher’s life. While there are some...

An Empty Nest Makes It Easy To Focus On Work!

Most parents would agree that while having children is great, it’s also the most demanding job of all. Even healthy children require a tremendous amount of time and energy to raise, and caring for children requires constant sacrifices. This isn’t an argument for or against having children but rather a reality check for what goes into managing life once children are in the picture. Bringing up baby to adult translates to countless hours devoted to caring, loving, encouraging, nursing, supporting, educating and disciplining ones kids....

A Great Personal Brand Can Shape Your Legacy!

About Beth Kuhel Posted on November 23, 2013 by Beth Kuhel When many people hear the question, “What’s your personal brand?” their hair stands on end. It can sound like you’re implying that a unique individual is reduced to the equivalent of a packaged product. The word “brand” isn’t typically associated with human qualities: Defining your brand requires you to take an objective, impersonal look at yourself to sift out what it is that you offer or what your usefulness is in today’s economy. The question is, how can you...

Stress vs. Comfort? Can Stress Be Good for You?

Click here to watch the TEDTalk that inspired this post. When I think of the word stress it makes me nervous. The word itself evokes anxiety and makes me think about all the things I could worry about and that could possibly go wrong. But after listening to Kelly McGonigal’s TEDTalk, “How to Make Stress Your Friend?” I’m recalling the most stressful experiences in my life and I’m trying to perceive them differently, in a more positive light: I’m negating the worldview that stress is a killer and is...

How to Determine It’s Time to Make a Career Change?

Originally posted in US News & World Report   Changing industries isn’t a guaranteed solution to one’s discontent. When most people reach the point that they want to leave their job, it’s a time that’s wrought with emotions. There are a plethora of reasons a person gets fed up at work and feels he has reached the end of his rope: The boss is impossible, the workload’s oppressive, the hours are unbearable, the level of enrichment is lacking, the work is uninteresting and a slew of other reasons. Too...

What Does Love Have To Do With Workplace Productivity?

Posted on September 7, 2013 by Beth Kuhel http://www.personalbrandingblog.com/what-does-love-have-to-do-with-workplace-productivity/ I’ll never forget my first marketing class in graduate school. My professor asked the class for the definition of marketing and we all attempted to give astute answers. I recall confidently answering with one of the most well-known, conventional definitions for marketing described as the four P’s (product, price, promotion and place) and was quickly knocked down for a more concise one: “Love your...

In order to become an ideal workplace, one where employees feel they’re valued and have opportunities for growth, business owners need to create a community and a culture that rewards contributors. Since employees spend most of their time in the workplace, it makes sense that the environment should be one that nurtures them.  People crave feedback, connection, respect, appreciation, time for creativity and quiet time to be creative and time for socializing.  Extroverts may need a space that allows them to interact with lots of people...
