" I grew up in a poor Italian Family in New York and lived my entire life in Westchester and Connecticut. My parents were members of the greatest generation. They lived their faith, loved their country, and they were totally selfless. Their priorities were their children, their family and their friends. They took little for themselves and gave what they could spare to others. I learned and lived these values my entire life and I incorporate them into our business philosophy. Every customer is a member of our extended family, to the point where many have become close friends. We take the time to know their fears, concerns, passions and dreams. We then align all of our skills and resources with their goals and we never give up until they succeed. It may be old school, but it's a value system that has served us and our customers well. "

What is the key to getting my resume noticed along with a good number of job interviews?

I have been in this field for 30 years and I am still amazed at the number of weak resumes I see. Over 90% of our clients create resumes that look like a job description vs a marketing piece.  This doesn't surprise me since job seekers don't specialize in resume writing. A resume has to be a marketing piece where ordinary language is converted...

Are we on the verge of a civil war?

I keep hearing talk about a civil war, and I am hearing it more frequently than I care to hear it. A civil war would surely end this great republic to everyone's demise.

What exactly is a career partner? Think of it this way. We all have aspirations, a need for more money, career growth and recognition.

Defining the ideal career coach:

Being a career coach is an enormous responsibility. A person's career is always ranked in the top 3 of the most important things in a person's life. Given this fact, a career coach can't be someone who completed a 5 day certification course and now wants to give advice without a solid foundation of experience and knowledge.

I must admit that I am getting mixed signals. The Fed keeps raising interest rates, but then we are printing billions of dollars that we don't have, which will devalue our currency. We want to avoid a recession, but higher interest rates will hurt the housing industry which is 15-18% of GDP, and we are already seeing layoffs in the mortgage industr...
