Last week, I wrote an irreverent tirade about bogus contests. I got a lot of positive emails. Thank you. I actually had thought about pulling that article because, well, I didn’t know if I was just ranting or if it would actually help people. I decided to print it because it might resonate with some people. Your feedback showed me that I was right to go with my intuition.

The lesson for you is to be authentic. Use your voice. You’ll stand out from the crowd and the people who were meant to work with you will know it in their hearts and minds.
