5 Reasons My 90-Year-Old Grandma Smiled on Her Deathbed

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ― Mae West Fifteen years ago, I was lucky enough to witness the humble, elegant, peaceful passing of my 89-year-old grandpa. As I sat quietly in his hospice room alongside my grandma and other family members, his nurse smiled softly and said, “I can see he lived well.

Pitti Fragranze 2019: Interview with Pissara Umavijani of Dusita Paris

As we arrived in Florence, I got a text message from Pissara Umavijani, the perfumer of Dusita Paris, who invited me to her stand, promising a new perfume. She had me at "new perfume," and I was near her stand right on the morning of the very first day. The perfume, named Le Pavillon d’Or, was quite different from its name. It was a really breezy green, sort of cool, wet fig leaves withi... Read full article: Pitti Fragranze 2019: Interview with Pissara Umavijani of Dusita Paris from Fragrant...

The Evolution of Recruiting from 2009-2019

In 2008, I published a book with ATD Press called Success for Hire. Since then, I’ve followed the field closely and for this article, wanted to consider some of the major recruiting changes that have taken place over the last decade. The “Black Hole of HR” is No More When I entered this field, I advised candidates never to blindly submit a resume to a job board or an applicant tracking system (ATS).

Podcast #545: How Not to Get Scammed, Conned, or Duped

When you think about people getting scammed, you probably think of the elderly getting conned out of money over the phone.
