  • You are a valuable individual with services and skills to provide to others
  • No matter how tight or competitive the labor market, there are always people landing jobs. What helps them land the positions that others don’t? How they articulate their value proposition and how awesome they are; it’s not always about a difference in qualifications, expertise, and skills.
  • The art of “the humble brag”
  • “Just” is a four-letter word when placed in front of what you do (e.g.: “I’m just a nurse.”)
  • Forming powerful habits is crucial for the long-term health and sustainability of your career
  • You must invest in yourself and be as self-aware as possible
  • Undercommit and overdeliver
  • “Busy” is another four-letter word
  • Practice setting strong personal boundaries
  • “Know thyself”
  • Courage and confidence are paramount!
  • Your sense of personal agency is central to your ability to setting boundaries, as well as feeling and articulating your value
  • Your job is the funnel for your life
  • Develop your “positive mindset muscle”
  • If you remove your emotions from the truth, it’s no longer bragging — it’s just data
  • Own your accomplishments
  • Mindset, attitude, and strategic effort all work together in powerful ways logo
