Monday Motivation: “The Past Is History! Let Go and Let God”

Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing; Now it springs up; do you conceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland” -Isaiah 43:18-19

The past is history right? However, there are two reasons that we look back:

Dwelling–  Replaying situations over and over again to figure out  “WHY”. We desire closure in order to move on. Do we really need it though? Will you get the answers that you want? Will it help your healing/whole process? Dwelling doesn’t help you! It keeps you stuck in an experience that has past. You are choosing to reside in the past.

Deliverance–  This is when you look back and see how far you have come. Your growth, change, and forward focus was fueled by the lessons learned from your past. Deliverance is the action of being rescued or set free!

Set yourself free! Why are you letting your past incarcerate you? I have been there. I occasionally have to bail myself out of jail! I encourage you to look back and see your DELIVERANCE!

God is trying to do a new thing in you, but he can’t take you to greener pastures if you are dwelling on the past! LET GO AND LET GOD use your  past as evidence that he makes crooked paths straight! Let him use what the enemy tried to abuse!

I wish you all a prosperous and productive week!

Monday Motivation: “Take A Knee When You’re Injured”

“May the Lord answer you when you are in distress. May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.” -Psalm 20:1

You know it fascinates me when players get injured on the football field, opposing players take a knee. It is considered a sign of respect and concern when someone is hurt. We get injured physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally! It’s time to “take a knee.”

Life can consume you, and become a heavy weight. You don’t have to carry it by yourself! Who is on your medical staff when you are injured? I know someone who is on call 24/7. GOD.

God gave you vision, exercise it! Your eyesight can fool you into thinking that you can’t get past your injury. You see yourself limping, but God sees you walking!

Exercise: What are your injuries? Find a quiet place and write them down. The irony in this exercise is that these are the ways the enemy is attacking you. So what do you need to do? Construct your playbook! No fancy X’s, O’s or arrows. Lol. Your playbook will help you overcome the defensive line. There is a word for every injury.  Pull out your bible, open your bible app, and start constructing your playbook. YOU GOT THIS! You will see how your mind will shift from injured to healed, your TESTimony!

You are no longer injured! You just need a little physical therapy every once in a while! 🙂

I wish you all a prosperous and productive week!

XOXOXOX (Your Visionary In Charge, Regina)

Monday Motivation: “Don’t Let The Devil Disrupt What God Instructs”

Pictured above are three things: trees, a path, and what appears to be a s-shaped root covering a clear path…………..

“Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you” -Psalm 25:4-5

Now I am no biblical scholar by any means, but through much self-reflection I discovered this truth: God gives clear instructions, and the devil makes suggestions! The picture above depicts God’s plan and path for your life. The s-shaped root covering the clear path represents the MANY ways we stray from that path. You know, praying for a sign and then taking action ourselves instead of patiently waiting.

Gems and Gents, your purpose will be fulfilled if you listen to God’s instructions, and not fall victim to Satan’s (the enemy) suggestions. Satan has taken a peek into your future, and IT IS GREAT. Soooo what is his job: TO STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY. He will suggest detours and recalculate your route to get you off course.

Pay attention, because his suggestions are subtle! Sometimes the fastest route isn’t always the best route.

I wish you all productive week Gems and Gents! May you accomplish EVERY goal you set for yourself this week!

Monday Motivation: The Pit Prepares You For The Peak

This mountain represents the pits and peaks we experience in life. I have had many pit and peek moments.  I will have more and so will you. The reality is that our pit experiences prepare us for our peak.

Your struggles, trials, obstacles, and challenges  have a way of molding you into the person you were created to be. I used to worry, panic, stress, and totally shutdown in my pit experiences. Those negative emotions crippled me. I was afraid to be the best version of myself. I was afraid to climb and obtain my “peak” moment.

Your pit experience could be the loss of a loved one, finances, job, relationship, health issues, loss of a business venture or a number of things! I could go on and on. Experience is defined as “an event or occurrence that leaves and impression on someone.” How you perceive that moment will determine how you work through that moment! Will some situations, circumstances, and events feel like the end of the world? ABSOLUTELY…You want to know the truth?…..IT’S NOT!

I encourage you to embrace your pit experiences because they prepare you for your peak! Every perceived failure that you may have had, I bet you learned something from it! So did you technically fail? No, Plan A just didn’t work. Time for plan B,C,D,E,F…. Allow your pit experiences to mold you into the King’s and Queen’s you were destined to be when you reach the peak of your mountain!

XOXOX

Miss me or Nah?

Yes, I saw Girls Trip. YES, IT WAS AMAZING. Ohh and I cut my hair! 

Heeeeeeeeeeey Gems and Gents! I have been so focused on slaying goals that I forgot to keep in touch with you wonderful people! Sooooooo, take a seat, kick back, and relax as I serve you the tea of my life!

Well, I got a life coach. WHHHHHHAAAAAAT! Yep, I sure did. I can’t inspire you to write your vision if I am not surrounding myself with wise counsel to hold me accountable for mine right? My sessions have been AMAZING! I didn’t realize how scatterbrained I was. Wait, is that a word? Hmm… let’s just say I had A LOT of ideas and things I wanted to accomplish in life that I needed to organize and prioritize. Pretty soon I will have my PhD (#ABossWithMoreStudentLoanDebt…SIGH), I’m researching distance learning jobs (the classroom is NOT my ministry), I have a new work assignment (#DCMetro), I’m conducting vision board workshops (#EnvisionYourVision), hanging out with gym (#IGotGainz),  and learning and loving me while preparing for Boaz (I am so serious about this one!). I think that’s it! LOL.

I hope and pray each of you are taking strategic steps to ensure your vision comes to fruition. Are you stuck? What do I need to do to get you out of that hole? I motivate, I encourage, and I am human. Just like you, I make mistakes. I fall down, but I get up. I sometimes give up, but then I lift up my head and recognize that I was created for a purpose. I have a divine ordered assignment to encourage you! I have a testimony that I will share at a later date! Stay tuned………………

Be encouraged Gems and Gents! There is King and Queen in you! Every test, trial, peak, and valley is building a foundation for you to stand firm on! A foundation on quicksand is NOT cute! Plus if you’re like me, you don’t like sand in your toes! Random, I know. I bet you laughed though. Hahahahahahaha…

Peace, love, and coconut oil! Holla at cha later peeps!

3 Advantages of Hiring a Bilingual Candidate By: Vanessa Fardí

Having bilingual employees in the workforce can only bring benefits to the company. Studies have shown that bilingual people are good at multitasking and have excellent communication skills. Any company looking to expand or to have global reach should have at least 5 bilingual employees on their payroll. The most common language combination nowadays is English/Spanish. However, Chinese, German and French are languages also being sought after by recruiters. So if you are a job seeker, start looking for the best language school in your neighborhood, and if you are a recruiter or a company owner and you are not yet convinced bilinguals will eventually rule the world, here is a small list of the advantages of hiring bilingual candidates:

  1. International reach. Bilingual employees not only know how to speak the language, but, in most cases, they also have knowledge about their native country’s culture, which is always an advantage when dealing with international clients.
  2. Translation made easy. Having a bilingual employee makes using localization services a breeze. The staff member could be in charge of proof reading the translation of the content of the website and can assess the localization process. He or she can also adapt the information for what is more suitable in the different regions.
  3. Multitasking. A recent study showed that bilinguals can switch between tasks a lot quicker than people who know only one language. Researchers found that people who spoke several languages could process information faster and more efficiently than monolinguals.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to hire a whole lot of bilingual employees! Make sure to use a bilingual recruiter who can test their skills and that will be able to make a decision based on the candidate’s skills. Languages are the future, what do you have to lose?

5 Things You Should Know When Looking for a Job Abroad By: Vanessa Fardí

Leaving your home, as well as your friends and family behind to move to another country, where everything that surrounds you is completely different from that to which you are used to seeing is really not an easy task: different people, different cultures, different food and sometimes even a different language. However, some people think leaving their country of origin and traveling to settle down for a while on the other side of the planet to be a personal goal or even a milestone they need to achieve. In order to get established in a new country, there are some important aspects you will need to take into account: finding a job, a house, a room or an apartment, learning the native language, basic cultural aspects, and so many more! But let’s focus on finding a job for now. Follow these simple recommendations and you will be well on your way to successfully finding a job abroad:

  1. Do your research. Before applying for a job abroad, you need to be informed about how they manage resumes in the country you are moving to. Do you need a cover letter? Short or long resume? Do you need to attach your certificates? Or is your resume acceptable as is? In some cases, you will need to translate and notarize your degree and other certificates, so it is very important to do your research.
  2. Spread the news. Once you make a decision about the place you are going to be living next, tell every single person you know. This way, you will probably meet people who went through a similar experience or that are native of the country you chose. Your aunt will always have a friend of a friend who spent their summer in a far away and exotic country.
  3. Consider all your possibilities. Before quitting your job and booking the first ticket to Timbuktu, find out if the company you are currently working for offers exchange programs or if you have the possibility of being transferred to another branch. Other options are searching online for a job abroad, as well as searching your alumni networks and social network connections. Volunteering is also a great way to work abroad; besides, it’s a very rewarding experience.
  4. Be smart. Always let the employer know, in your cover letter or during the interview, that you have done your research about the different aspects of their country and that you are willing and prepared to start working. Furthermore, assure them that you are flexible enough so as to adapt to a foreign environment.
  5. Don’t be scared, relax. You have done your research, you have talked to every person you know about working abroad, you have looked for jobs online, you know everything there is to know about your target country, you have saved enough money to survive at least two months without a job, you are officially ready. Of course it is scary to live somewhere completely new, but it will probably be the most exciting adventure of your life, so go for it!

Monday Motivation: Your Board of Trustees

Happy Monday Gems and Gents! Now let’s kick this week off with a little Monday Motivation!

Pictured above is an empty boardroom. It is in rooms like this where key decisions are made on how to move forward, maintain current operations, or let people go. What does your boardroom look like? What key decisions have you made to move forward, maintain your current status, or let people go?

Now every company, has a “Board of Trustees” right? Now I want you to think about whether the individuals you have appointed to your “Board of Trustees” can be TRUSTED with your vision. Your vision is vital. If you have persons with eyesight on your board, they can hinder your progress. You see, people with eyesight can only see the current circumstances. Your vision goes beyond your current circumstances!

Examine your “Board of Trustees!”

XOXOXO

How to Design Original Resumes for Creative Careers By: Jacqueline Guzmán

How to Design Original Resumes for Creative Careers

In the world of creative thinking, there has been a revolution of digitalization, we have been bombarded with new tools, profiles, and even the creation of new areas of expertise. Writers, photographers, artists, and even fashion designers have needed to upgrade their skills when applying for certain jobs. Resumes are now full of innovation, imagination, and different artistic styles.

We grew up with the idea that the more serious and professional your Curriculum Vitae looked, it would be more likely to achieve the required expectations of the employers and, therefore, to be hired. If you’re a doctor or a lawyer, this might actually work, but for designers, artists, or photographers, it’s a long way from what it’s supposed to be. An artist’s resume needs to show the quality and originality of their work. This does not mean that you will hand in something resembling a high school graffiti. We are here to help you and we have put together some pointers to take into consideration, depending on your application and skills.

Design Students, Photographers, Fashion Designers, and Artists

Creativity is very important, which means their resumes have to be colorful, dynamic, interesting, and eye-catching, but at the same time, they have to be resourceful when showing the information required, always being true to the artist’s style without overpowering the document.

When you go online, there are so many styles of professional resume templates for graphic designers and artists that you can easily download and modify depending on the specific needs of the person.

If you have photos, paintings, drawings, or sketches, you must make sure to include a physical and digital portfolio of your work, specifying the year and the media used to create them. These have to be in high quality, medium to large size, so they can be properly appreciated.

The internet is full of examples of inspiring creative resumes and design portfolios. In order to stand out in this market, it is essential to make your online portfolio as inspiring as possible.

Production and Entertainment

Productions with real budgets are always in need of individuals to do specific jobs. Therefore, remember to put your profession or your current position immediately after your name. When writing down your experience in the field, the best is to point out professional jobs first, then student and micro-budget projects last. Producers want to see that you have previous professional experience.

If you’re a recent graduate, add your education at the top of your resume and the experience, if any, at the bottom. You must list each position you have held, along with a list of concise points describing your job responsibilities at each company. If you’ve completed any significant personal film projects or won any awards, add them to the list.

There are websites where you can upload your resume, video, and demo reels when applying for specific jobs. Building up a network of contacts by studying media at school, film at the university, or attending a local filmmaking club. By meeting people and making low budget short films, as well as working on movie sets, will help you keep in touch with film crew members on social media. It is known that often directors and producers will work with the same people time and time again; therefore, this will increase the probability of finding a job in the area.

Finally, creating social media profiles and writing a great description can also help put your name out there. Participate in forums, online competitions, Vimeo, twitter chats, and Instagram profiles will definitely increase your chances of getting a job. Creativity revolves around us, digitalized on the internet, and you should try to be a part of it to let people know what skills you offer.
