Feeling Depressed About Finding A Job? Here Are 5 Tips to Help You Get Out of Your Rut

fundamental lack of confidence

In her important article about the gender confidence gap, Margie Warrell has pointed out, that whether women are in New York, Australia or anywhere else in the world, women wrestle with self-confidence and it’s holding them back.

If at the outset strong, smart women lack self-confidence, it’s seems only logical that when they search for a job, they’’ll be even less self-confident. In more extreme cases, this lack of confidence can lead women to feel depressed and suck them in a downward spiral.

It’s International Women’s Day 2017. What’s the most meaningful thing women can do for each other?

What does it mean to you?

As I meet more women and discuss their choices and success with them, I’m always surprised when successful powerhouse women tell me that they don’t see themselves, or define themselves as feminists. Most of the time, these women tell me they don’t like labels.

But, because I’m so busy writing for WiseStamp and so busy writing for Ink of Imagination – my own freelance writing company, I haven’t been writing my book – the reason I began writing in the first place.

Why Robin Williams’ Death Matters

I didn’t know Robin Williams personally. I’m sure that I wasn’t even among his greatest fans. As a kid, I loved him as Mork. As a teen I loved him as John Keating in Dead Poets Society. As an adult, I appreciated his immense talent to make people laugh.

Robin Williams seemed to have a certain magic. He was able to play any role whether silly or serious. In most of his movies he would do both. He’d make you laugh, he’d make you cry. And one might argue that through whatever role he was playing, he’d give you a glimpse into who he was.
