9 Tips to Help You with Your Salary Negotiation

You’re about to enter a salary negotiation with your current or future employer. Good for you! A pay rise is a topic many employees struggle to bring up or avoid altogether.

5 Tips for Setting Goals You’ll Actually Achieve

So how are those New Year’s resolutions working out for you? 


We’re almost at the end of January and I’d be willing to bet that for some of you, they’re not working out that great.  For those of you who are well underway with making them happen, go you!


Now I can’t say I’m a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. Mainly because in the past I’d get carried away with the excitement, set way too many of them and give no thought as to how I was going to achieve them.
