Happy Thanksgiving!

The Reason for the Season – There are two reasons I started my Executive Recruiting firm.  First, I wanted to help good people find great new career opportunities.  Second, the business allows me to donate my time and finance resources to charity/community.  And that changes lives for the better.  A portion of each placement from this campaign will be donated to Make-A-Wish, Opportunity Village, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Olive Crest, Goodwill, Salvation Army and Noah’s Animal House @ Shade Tree.

Let It Go! – Great book by T.D. Jakes about forgiveness. I deal with laid off executives daily, and the number one reason most can’t find employment is they are so bitter about being laid off. Let me give you a news flash – your former boss is not obsessing about you, so “let it go” and move on. The other area where bitterness is prevalent is relationships. After a divorce, many people spend the rest of their life being bitter or trying to “get even”. The ex-wife of one major casino executive sent a nasty note to his entire rolodex. Let it go! Always remember this; bitterness is the poison you drink while you wait for the other person to die.

Ladies of Distinction Luncheon (Olive Crest) – Friday November 30 at Noon at Green Valley Ranch Station. Honorees include two of my good friends (Jan Jones, Dawn Gibbons), along with Victoria Napoles of the Latin Chamber. Still have tables and tickets – contact me directly at mwayman2@cox.net.
