Recent Quips and Tips articles include helping friends who have breast cancer, improving your interview skills, and jazzing up your email signature. I’m excited to include Quips and Tips for Spiritual Seekers – my newest blog – for the first time in my roundup of articles!
I’ve been slogging my way through working on and enjoying a book proposal for the Quips and Tips series. 😉 It’s tough work, pulling together a book proposal, especially when there’s no guarantee your book will ever hit the shelves. But I’m trying to enjoy the process and not get hung up on the “what if this is all a big fat waste of time?” stumbling block.
If you have any words of advice or encouragement for me, I welcome your comments below! And now, here’s a roundup of my latest articles on Quips and Tips, See Jane Soar, and Psychology at Suite101…
