The case for leadership

The following blog post was based on an initial article I wrote for Marketplace Matters. I’m honored to serve along side other Christ-followers who find purpose in their work and recognize the true meaning of leadership. It is fair to say that we will all read a book or an article, at least once inContinue reading “The case for leadership”

Lessons from my second job

These are some of the lessons I learned from my time working at a nuclear site. These experiences have impacted my life.

Lessons from my first job

In my previous post I shared about the beginning of my vocational journey. Working at Hill & Knowlton allowed me to use my passion for storytelling on a daily basis. It also provided me with two professional lessons that have been instrumental in my career. I will unpack each one of these lessons with theContinue reading “Lessons from my first job”

The beginning of my vocational story

Work has long been a connecting point between me and others. I’ve enjoyed sharing experiences with professionals who are vulnerable about their wins and their losses. I recently blogged about my view of work and how we have transitioned from a vocational model to an occupational point of view. This recognition of a shifting realityContinue reading “The beginning of my vocational story”

Work that suits you

The last few months have been extremely busy. Work has taken much of my attention but I have enjoyed every moment of it. The majority of us spends over 60 hours a week at work. So, it’s only logical that we should immerse ourselves in activities that we love and enjoy. I blogged about it recentlyContinue reading “Work that suits you”

Loving your work

One of my favorite topics of conversation is work. I’ve heard it said that men, in particular, quickly gravitate towards talking about their job and role in the marketplace. I can attest to that as I often realize the first information I know about someone I just met is where they work and what they doContinue reading “Loving your work”

The best formula to build Commitment

As part of my new year’s theme I’ve decided to focus on one word: Commitment. I blogged about it on my first post of 2016. I recall this word coming to me during a time of prayer and meditation. Commitment is a word that is present in everyone. We all make decisions and commitment isContinue reading “The best formula to build Commitment”

Choosing a theme for 2016

We are a few days into the new year and by now you might have already made some mistakes that jeopardize your new year’s resolution. That happens to most of us – making plans for a new year and falling short of them. At least that is what statistics tell us. I was reminded thisContinue reading “Choosing a theme for 2016”

Creating a Culture of Thankfulness

My last blog post highlighted my appreciation for Thanksgiving as a pure holiday that is quickly forgotten. Today I want to showcase three habits that we can all adopt in order to create an environment where gratitude is center stage to our life. These are simple actions that I’ve taken with family, friends and co-workers.Continue reading “Creating a Culture of Thankfulness”

Balancing life through priorities

The following blog post was first published on the Hope Community Church website as part of the Marketplace Matters Ministry. I’m honored to serve along side other Christ-followers who find purpose in their work. If you live in Raleigh-Durham, I encourage you to visit us and attend one of our monthly networking and leadership events.Continue reading “Balancing life through priorities”
