How to Discover Your True Talent and Make It Profitable
Are you looking for the secret path to a successful life? Something you can find out there in the world — if you just keep searching for it. You see, most people make the mistake of looking outward for success opportunities. However, the easiest and most rewarding path to success is looking within. Discovering what you have to offer to the world that nobody else can. Finding your own unique talents and sharing them in a meaningful way.

How to help recruiters win the fight.
Recruiting just ain't what it used to be. That's the news from Monster's State of Recruiting survey. Respondents pointed to two big and related culprits. Fifty-nine percent claimed there's a shortage in the skilled labor they're looking for because of rapid economic growth and an increased number of job openings. That's basically turning recruiters into WWF champions fighting for a huge belt of people who can be pickier about the jobs they accept.
You're slaving away at your office job, but you're secretly dreaming of creating your own success instead of working to make your boss more successful. You might feel like you're the only one who hasn't realized their talent. But you couldn't be further from the truth. Many people feel the same way. And even the ones that managed to turn their talent into profit felt the same way at some point. The only difference is that they discovered the talent they could use to make money. One way is to keep waiting for your talent to show up and hope that the talent gods will decide it's finally your turn and hand it over to you.
