I took the high road today. Â It was tough but I did it. Â I received an unsolicited resume from someone yesterday and I read his opening paragraph (of 7 with bullets, mind you). Â I then opened his resume and forwarded it to someone who might have a position for the individual. Â Did I go back and read the rest of his extremely long email? Â No – I got an UNSOLICITED resume and I have work to do. Â In fact, I had three customers with emergencies just after I received his email. Â So he was not a priority.Â On a whim, I sent him a question. Â Turns out, he answered the question in paragraph 5 which he was quick to point out in his response. Seriously?

Behind the Curtain
Recently, I got to serve on the Medina County Smoke Out committee under Leadership Medina County.

Boolean Black Belt- Just gotta say, WOW!
Don’t you love finding something that is just awesome and incredibly helpful and answers questions you didn’t even know you had? I recently did that when I started following Boolean Black Belt, Glen Cathey. His posts are straight forward and to the point and shows you how to search for ANYTHING using the tools available today. I am always disappointed with the trainers / bloggers / advisors who get so technical they leave people in the dust and feel good about themselves because they know something other’s don’t. Glen, on the other hand, goes out of his way to make sure his information is clear, you can follow it and start implementing it today. To get started, I highly recommend his new Sourcing / Recruiting Resources – while the title is simple, the information included is a gold mine.
