Hi! And a BIG congratulations for finding our little corner on the web where young professionals (or those feeling young at heart!!) can find a voice for the questions, concerns, advice & opinions they have about how to have a great career. We get it and we get you – these are challenging times and everything seems to be zooming at you. Technology is advancing at an ever increasing rate, just like the expanding universe (yes, that’s for the Trekkies out there) and so are expectations on employees and managers to excel; to be the very best and to win. Now it is easy to fall into the trap of believing every bit of advice being peddled by good and not-so good intentioned experts; shelling out a lot of money on books, training courses, subscriptions and the ever popular, and expensive, mega personality conferences. We don’t want that to happen to you!

Don’t get me wrong, some of it is good material, and we will be showcasing and reviewing what we think are some of the best. But a successful career is not about information overload, or the 5 or 6 or 7 or 10 “easy steps” to a top career. In fact, I am sure you will never find a successful person who can distill down their whole career plan to a few tips. Otherwise we would all be CEO’s! A career is like a marathon, you need to have a plan, persevere, make tactical corrections, have milestones, be able to see the finishing line and above all, have support beside you, urging you to keep the faith. That’s what were here for!

Whether your definition of success is being the top dog or being happy in the pack, and making a wage that lets you live the life you want; there are some “life’s lessons” that we can all relate to. At GroomForSuccess, we want to help you to increase your self-awareness and openness to learning, build a winning personal brand so that in the career marathon ahead, we can tilt the scales a little in your favor.

We hope you stay with us on the journey and visit us regularly to experience our latest posts!
