Welp, I did it. Took on a client who I knew was going to be trouble, and now they don’t want to pay me. Overall, I’m chalking this up to a lesson learned, but any advice for rolling with the punches when you have a negative client interaction? I’ve been a coach for years with all positive feedback, and I think this hurt my pride more than anything.

Always get paid upfront for sessions agreed upon. General rule of thumb in coaching. Also, you need to remove yourself from their outcomes and clients decisions. You coach they execute or not.

Be with that part of you that’s hurt and embrace it with love and acceptance. Ask yourself, “what did I make the interaction mean about myself.” Flood yourself with compassionate self forgiveness around that story.

Hi everyone,

I've been searching for a job as a Scrum Master/ Project Manager over the past 3 months now and I haven't gotten much success and I was hoping that some of you can refer me to the aforementioned roles in your Organizations. Thanks in advance.

This is such a basic question, but what’s the best way to give my two weeks and not have things be completely awkward at work? I’m leaving to do the same type of work, but at a firm that I worked for in law school and that I know has a much better culture. My boss has a tendency to be passive aggressive towards people that are leaving and given that my office is right next to hers I’m worried my last two weeks are going to be so uncomfortable. Suggestions/advice?

Motivation is key when it comes to bettering yourself, your team and your brand. Without self-motivation, you'll be less likely to inspire your team to work together to better your business. Like a muscle, self-motivation becomes stronger the more you use it. Mastering the art of self-motivation will take some time to become a habit. However, with daily practice, you'll not only better yourself and your business, you'll inspire your team to lead more meaningful personal and professional lives.
