    Getting to The Core of The Great Resignation, How The Department of Labor Bites the Hand That Feeds It, And What Employers Can Do To Help Stem the Tide

    Getting to The Core of The Great Resignation, How The Department of Labor Bites the Hand That Feeds It, And What Employers Can Do To Help Stem the Tide

    Where Are All The Workers? 

    The economy is opening back up and employers are trying desperately to get back to business as usual. Despite a rise in new jobs, employers say they're continuing to have a hard time finding workers. 

    The job index reports that a record 531,000 jobs were added in the month of October, yet millions of Americans are still looking for work. At the same time, from August until now, more than 4.3 million workers have left their jobs.

    There are multiple factors affecting the potential workforce, ranging from: 


    A lack of resources such as child care, low wages, or an inability to afford to commute
    Health Concerns 
    A deep desire for something new and more fulfilling work. 



    t's been called The Great Resignation, but what's at the core of it? 

    And what's next for those workers who are not only turning their back on the workforce, but employees deciding to rejoin the workforce?



    In this episode, we'll look at some of the factors that both that are helping both employers and employees decide on the best way to go back to a new way of working, I'll update you on my brouhaha with the Colorado Department of Labor, and how employers are recognizing the true definition of self fulfillment and personal satisfaction in work. 

    Stay tuned.

    Speeding Up the Process: Denver Residents and Renters Across the US Wonder If They'll Receive Assistance Before Eviction Notices As City Struggles to Disperse Funds Quickly

    Speeding Up the Process: Denver Residents and Renters Across the US Wonder If They'll Receive Assistance Before Eviction Notices As City Struggles to Disperse Funds Quickly

    We all know that renting has always come with its own headaches, but this past year has caused many more problems than usual for many homeowners in Denver, and other cities across the country. 

    Evictions are increasing at an alarming rate because of the recent economic slump. There are already dozens of families around the country who still haven't received a portion of the Federal aid allotted to keep them in their homes, due to difficulty in disbursing funds that seems to be holding back most states. 

    This happens after hundreds have already been evicted from their homes before they could even apply for aid at all! 

    In this episode I'm exploring Denver's growth, Hatch Chiles, tent cities, and what Denver's doing to move the needle. Tune In!

    Surprisingly Simple Ways to Bring Your Best Self to Work Each Day, Setting Boundaries with Work Karen's, and Personal Growth Is A Daily Practice

    Surprisingly Simple Ways to Bring Your Best Self to Work Each Day, Setting Boundaries with Work Karen's, and Personal Growth Is A Daily Practice

    This Week's Episode:

    One of the main reasons people burn out or quit their jobs is because they feel like they are not showing up as their best self at work. This happens when you feel like you're not growing anymore, you're not learning, you're not doing anything new, you're not challenged. 

    With the number of hours we spend at work, it's inevitable that we encounter stressors. It's also inevitable that we make mistakes at work, because even the most seasoned professional is still human. 

    In this episode, as part of the Self Care for Working Professionals series, we're talking about how to show up as your best self at work. 

    We're also talking about 


    cultivating a growth mindset
    increasing your skillsets
    dealing with workplace bullies and Karen's
    and the power of work BFF's



    Grab a cuppa joe, or mix a drink (it's happy hour somewhere) and get ready to cringe a little, laugh a little, and nod your head in recognition as I share my week and explore the daily (and difficult) practice of personal growth and simple ways to gracefully handle workplace shenanigans.
