A Mentor At Your Fingertips

“A Mentor At Your Fingertips” has detailed advice based on my professional experiences to identify and set your personal and professional goals, prepare for an interview, develop successful interview techniques, grow a career, and avoid career breakers. Each chapter starts with an inspirational quote and ends with a personal challenge to assist you in taking the needed steps to achieve your dreams.


This page shares my best articles to read on topics like Career Development, Leadership, The Value of Different Perspectives, Career Breakers, and more.

The central question that drives my work is, “How can we achieve our dreams?”

To answer that question, I like to write about tips that I have learned in my work experience and as an interviewer who has sat on hundreds of interview boards.

You’ll find interesting articles to read on topics like how to stop procrastinating as well as personal recommendations like my list of the best books to read and my minimalist travel guide.

Career and Interview Tips

In real estate, there is a saying that you only need to remember three things – location, location, and location. Similarly, for interviewing, you must remember to prepare, prepare, and prepare. To this, add practice makes perfect. For building your career, you need to learn and grow from your experiences and expand your horizon by trying new things both professionally and personally.

Development and Leadership Tools

One of my favorite books is “How To Be Interesting” by Jessica Hagey. It says, “Remain a student. Sign up to learn things. Philosophy, pottery, accounting, painting, diving, fine eating – anything you can admit that you do not understand. You never know when you will need a random skill.”

Inspirational Thoughts

Positive affirmations start your day right, help you frame your goals, and give you the strength to overcome challenges.

The Gender Gap

Antonio Guterres said it most eloquently. “We have to transcend our differences to transform our future.”

Different Voices

Just as there is more than one way to get to a mountain top, there is more than one path to finding success. In “Different Voices”, guest bloggers will share their journeys and their thoughts on how they define success. I hope by reading their posts, you will find your voice and live your best life.

Stories of the Heart

These are experiences from my own life, from people watching, and about other individuals whose lives are examples of living life with passion and integrity as well as how to be the hero or she-roe of your own story.
