A must read

Posted on April 05, 2011 by Susanne

This book is a must-read for anyone just getting out of school and looking for a first job, for people who unexpectedly lost their job and find themselves searching and for those changing careers or trying to break into a new field. Susanne Goldstein bases her book on her own extensive experience and creative yet very workable approach to designing the career of her dreams. Her strategies and tools are hands-on, brilliantly simple, fun – and most importantly: they work. I learned a lot from her book!

The results of the March 23rd raffle are in, and I’m very excited to offer free coaching sessions to the winners (or the recipient of their choice)!

The winners are:

Peter DeLong
Andrew Muff
Beatrice Kiraso

I will be in touch with the winners directly. Thanks to everyone for your support. And of course if you are interested in getting in touch with me about my career coaching services, please write me here.

To learn about how the winners were selected, read below:

On March 23rd, I held a raffle in association with pre-ordering Carry a Paintbrush on Three winners were to be drawn at random to win a one-hour coaching session each.

Based on email and Facebook submissions, names were entered into an excel spreadsheet and randomized. We then applied a random number generator (see image) and associated the winning numbers with the rows in the excel spread sheet. The winning numbers are 27,3 and 5 as seen in the random number generator image above. The winners were those with names in the 27th, 3rd and 5th rows.


The Other Day at Kung Fu

Posted on March 21, 2011 by Susanne

I went to the Kung Fu studio on Friday in need of a good workout. The night before I had pressed “Send,” and Carry a Paintbrush soared through the ether on its way to the printer. That night I didn’t sleep well, and the next day figured a good session of Kung Fu sparring was going to do me a world of good.

I met Sebastian, a master’s student in writing at Boston College, when I first started practicing Kung Fu. In the Fall of 2010 when I began writing the book , I enlisted Sebastian (and his plentiful talent) to intern with me on the project. The deal was that I was going to pay him a little cash and a lot of coaching as compensation for helping me with researching and editing parts of the book.
