“If you’re looking through you’re Twitter feed — if you’re looking through your Facebook feed — you’re looking through your LinkedIn feed, whatever and someone has a question  that you can answer — answer it! Even if it is just a short little “Well have you tried this (blah-di-blah-di-blah) It may turn into a longer conversation. It may turn into a longer conversation, but I have had situations like that turn into work — turn into great relationships. Simply because I took the time to take a little piece of the expertise I have and share it with someone else.

Building a successful career in 2014 requires that we focus on 3 things this year, including:

1. Attracting Opportunity 2. Recognizing Opportunity 3. Accepting Opportunity

Join Douglas E. Welch for deeper exploration of the Year of Opportunity and what it can bring for you!

Thomas Edison is quoted as saying “”Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” This is still true today. Work that expands our lives and careers should be sought out and embraced, even if there is a bit of hard work involved. In fact, most opportunities worth pursuing require hard work of some sort. Life doesn’t often give you gold simply for being you. You need to share your knowledge and show your worth and this often means some long hours, if not actual physical labor.
