"YOU ARE A GOOD WORKER"

‘I just want you to know who I am’, is the theme for a popular song. Few are able to express see who they really are let alone others, so imagine my surprise when my VP said to me “you are a good worker” the other day.  I had written about him before and while…

I KNOW I AM NOT MY EGO BUT…{WORK EDITION}

At the risk of coming off as petty, ungrateful or heaven forbid, human, I have to admit to feeling a wave of anger and depression when I think about what my colleagues got as a year-end bonus. After doing ALL the work and my boss constantly telling me how he knows that and to end up…
