You Asked For It, You Got It


Today is July 1st — officially the beginning of the second half of the year. I am kicking off the month by participating in my second “Ultimate Blog Challenge”. I will use this challenge to challenge you to up your game. I will be authoring 31 special blogs during the month of July.

You know me as the Chief Visionary Officer of The Teen Toolbox – teen life skills, youth portfolio development, foster care, education, and community service, but this month I have something special for adults. Are you currently job hunting? Are you a new college graduate? Are you ready to change jobs? Maybe you know someone who can benefit from new job search strategies? Well guess what? I am dedicating the next 30 days to helping adults who are seeking employment. Yes, my fellow adults, this one is for you.

Are you wondering WHY the shift in focus? It’s true I am extremely passionate about empowering teens and young adults but this isn’t really a shift in focus for me (more on that tomorrow). Here are the 5 main reasons why I am blogging for adults this month:

  1. I know the benefits of doing work that you love.
  2. I understand the value in being appreciated and rewarded for doing great work.
  3. The economy and job market continue to change.
  4. Economic stability is something we all are striving for.
  5. You asked for it and you got. Every time I facilitate a teen workshop adults ask me when I’m going to deliver a workshop for them.


Please feel free to leave your job search questions and comments on this blog or email them to me at info (at) theteentoolbox (dot) com.

Are you ready? Good! See you tomorrow for tip number 1!

  • This is a God send as a friend is staying with us soon and she will be looking for work so I will share this series with her as she has to find a job soon. Thank you,

  • Hi Nicki

    Congrats on meeting the demand! And being prepared to step up to the challenge. Good luck with your challenge for the rest of the month 🙂

  • I’m so happy you work with young people. As adults we needed to be reminded of their enthusiasm, natural skills, and how they are productive citizens looking to make a better world for themselves. I know you’re writing about adults this month, but just wanted to say thanks. I’m looking forward to your upcoming articles!

    • I LOVE working with young people Don. I thank you for thanking me for doing what I love. All the tips I share this month will also be useful for my youth. We all can use a boost.

  • This looks like it’s going to be a great series, and so needed right now. I can’t tell you how many people I know that are looking for jobs, and doing it SO badly. My husband has been in transition in his career, and he’s just floored by some of the things he’s been seeing. I look forward to this series!

    • Hi Kristi. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. We are indeed in a touch job market and every thing we can do to lift ourselves to the top of the resume pile is worthwhile. I hope many will benefit.
