Every culture past and present has some form of magic tradition, though not always professional. It can be great career option for women. Most kids growing up today can perform a card trick or two, and almost all of us have an uncle who pulls coins out of ears. But magic goes far beyond tricks, and a substantial living can be earned with a combination of talent, skill, and moxie.
You walk into a shopping mall or hotel and see an interior filled with beautiful plants and flowers. Every plant looks healthy and perfectly placed. The planters coordinate with the colors and style of the professionally designed interior furnishings. Many people admire environments such as this, and wish they could
The art and craft of costuming can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, who adorned their necks, arms, and bodies with jewelry and special articles of clothing. In today’s entertainment-driven society, it would stand to reason that there is a demand for talented folk to dress the myriad of actors and starlets. Talent is good to have, skills are even better, but perseverance is key.
You’re a great communicator. You can write great speeches, deliver stellar presentations, decipher jargon and turn it into any language you choose, as long as it leads to better understanding.
You’re feeling pretty proud about yourself. Heck, you are a guru. Yet, you are not really sure what to do with your talents, how to make money from your passions, and how to chart a path for your future success.
There have been a few inquiries about hiring or becoming a professional coach, so what better time than now to address this burgeoning field?
Although setting up shop as a coach does not require a degree or a license, the most successful coaches I know are those who have been trained specifically as a coach (regardless of other consulting or counseling backgrounds) and carry a coaching credential.
There are several coach-specific training schools in this country and a few abroad. I would look for a school credentialed by the International Coach Federation, the international nonprofit association for the profession. Their Web site and coach referral list are linked to this column. Although all the schools are good, the only program I have had firsthand experience with is CoachU’s training program. It’s a virtual program, which makes it accessible and flexible to train while you hold down another job, and their material is excellent. Most of these schools offer a way to sample classes for free, so please do so, and find the one that best suits your style of learning and the kind of coaching you want to do.
Ms Earhart disappearance in July 1937 somewhere near Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean has caused speculation ever since. However, the story of women in flight history goes much further back than that.
In fact Lady Lindy, as Earhart became known by the media, was only 9 years old, when in 1906 women began to infiltrate the male citadel of aviation in the shape of E. Lillian Todd, who designed and built aircraft. Four years later, Blanche Stuart Scott had the honor of being the first woman to fly solo, and the following year, journalist Harriet Quimby became the first American woman not only to earn a pilots license, but also to cross the English Channel. It was to take another 10 years before Bessie Coleman made history, not only because she was a woman, but because she was African-American, the first African-American (of either gender) to receive a pilot’s license. Although our culture is such that when we sit down on an aircraft, we expect to hear a male voice announcing itself as the Captain, in fact women have been piloting scheduled aircraft since 1934 when Helen Richey, employed by Central Airlines, became the first woman Airline Pilot.
Often times science is thought of as a purely logical affair in which the scientific method is used to systematically explore an element of our universe. But what happens after a discovery is made that will affect the public? The late Jacques Cousteau used a poetic style to introduce the world to the oceans with his popular television series The Undersea World. Another marine biologist and poet, Rachel Carson, also shows us a scientist can reach the most number of people through poetic words.
The recent issue of Time reintroduces us to Rachel Carson (1907-1964) through a book review about her life. Rachel Carson was born and raised in Springdale, Pennsylvania, graduated from the former Pennsylvania College for Women, and earned an master of arts in zoology at Johns Hopkins University. For most of her professional life (1936-1952) she was a marine biologist and editor at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. There she wrote pamphlets on conservation and edited articles, but these writings were of the scientific kind.
The Mars Pathfinder mission seems to be a forgotten mission on Earth. It was two months ago on July 4th when Pathfinder first bounced onto Mars. Still, the rover Sojourner is roaming the Mars landscape. When I reflect on this mission I remember the science team cheering when Pathfinder first landed and when they saw the first pictures of Sojourner on Mars. I also remember the manager of the mission talking with a CNN reporter and enjoying the dramatic happenings. Finally, I remember the smiling science team answering reporters’ questions during press conferences.
Day by day, when I meet up with people in the past, most of them complain about how life is so difficult. How they run out of ideas on how to generate more money, get more business so that their life can improve.
Yes, most of them are losers. Instead of thinking how to channel their positive energy into something constructive, they blame the world, their luck, their parents for not leaving them enough dough…In short, they Whine Alot… I’ll just cut it short.
Moving forward, I notice a very disturbing trend. Most of those guys I know of who are not doing well are really clueless of what they should be doing. They’ve got no purpose in life. Their life is just about making ends meet. If they make slightly more, they’ll go for their holidays.
