More About the Author
Since 1992, I have been providing professional services in career consulting and executive coaching. After counseling thousands of individuals on their careers, I drew from my diverse experience to create Career Potential, LLC - a powerful new approach to career management.
My firm works with executives and professionals, helping them to take charge of their careers, create the work they love, and earn what they deserve! Career Potential also helps leading companies attract, develop and retain premium talent.
I have served on the staffs of three prominent career management firms - Right Management Consultants, Manchester, and Lee Hecht Harrison - where I was Vice President, Director of Professional Services. In recognition of outstanding business contributions, both Right Management Consultants and Lee Hecht Harrison honored me with professional service awards - including the prestigious "President's Award."
I am author of two books: The Ultimate Career Guide and Get The Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring (published by John Wiley & Sons). My articles and interviews have been featured in such publications as Inc. Magazine, Fortune Magazine, Money Magazine, US News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Crain's Investment News, The Washington Post, The Miami Herald, The Baltimore Sun, The Dallas Morning News, ExecuNet's CareerSmart Advisor, and The Seattle Times. In addition, Career Potential publishes a monthly e-newsletter entitled "Your Career Advocate."

I have also appeared as a career management expert on numerous television and radio programs, such as NBC-TV, CBS-TV, Fox-TV, Comcast-TV, CBS Radio Network, Clear Channel Radio Network, Infinity Radio Network, and Bonneville Radio Network.
