Reflecting on the Future

Oftentimes as the year wraps up people are inclined to make New Year's Resolutions.

What about during something different at the end of the year? Take some time and allow yourself to concentrate on the past 12 months:

  • Reflect on what's worked

  • Acknowledge your successes

  • Acknowledge your failures then find success in them

Now project that into the future. Do you want to continue on the same track? What is the big picture for next year?

Listen to the show with Beverly Simmons, ACC. Beverly is a certified life coach. She can be reached at

Taking Care of Yourself!

Taking Care of Yourself! Sounds simple and rational but somehow it gets missed in the equation.

Just think, how can you compete in this job market if you are not functioning at your most optimal level? So now is the time for you to stop and take care of yourself. Perhaps for you it is 5 minutes of meditation or a 2 hour movie for someone else.

The point is for you to start taking care of yourself: (1) body, (2) mind and (3) soul. One of the best ways for me to take care of body, mind and soul is music. On Career Quest, I will be joined by the Jazz Angels. Barry Cogert - Executive Director, Albert Alva - Co-Director and 9 talented young musicians from Jazz Angel, Inc have a great show in store for you.

So tune in for conversation about taking care of yourself and some wonderful Jazz Music.
