Career Coaching in a Recession

I was speaking to a friend earlier today. Really, I was helping him to get his CV updated and to tidy up his cover letter. Unfortunately, that was more work than I thought it was. He has been with his company for a few years, has been in a few jobs, however the recession makes him fear he might lose his job soon. So he asked me to look into that and since I run my own consulting and coaching business I was more than happy to do that. He was pleased with the fresh input I gave him for his CV, the way he can sell himself much better now. And, he also is much more confident to apply for jobs and do his cover letters too. I said, no problem, anytime. He answered that he would like to pay me but instead suggested to pay 2% of his new job’s salary to me. With his position, that could be a nice promise if he keeps it. Maybe I should offer that to everyone – if you run your CV by me and cover letter, I help you to identify your goals, aims and objectives to where you want

And, lots to read in my blog about the peaceful warrior.

http://www.balamadana.com/

A new URL, a new name, a new project! Shortly, Marcelo and I, wil launch http://www.balamadana.com/ – a site that explains a little bit about Buddhism, Management, Personal Development. It is similar to cb consulting, www.cb-consulting.co.uk, a more Buddhism focused project. Our blog will be on blog.balamadana.com The beauty is that Marcelo is living and working in Brazil whilst I am still in London – Our path crossed a few months back and now we go a path together. Both working hard but we decided to bring joy and help to our friends out there by giving tips, hints and love! In Buddhism we have “bala madana” which is part of a ceremony for those who have tantric empowerment and they are always together. That is how Marcelo introduced me to the name. That means in a general sense: “body and soul”, bliss and emptyness, union of sutra and tantra. For me, that name which reminds us of our names, symbolizes two souls for one idea. Stay tuned – we will shortly launch www.balamadana.com officially.

New website live

Hello, After a few months my new website for cb consulting is live! I made a few changes and added more services. Now, cb consulting not only concentrates on coaching and on trainings but also adds the management consulting for strategy and marketing to its portfolio. Also, particularly looking back at my old job, I gained so much knowledge and experience about the Online Marketing industry that I am more than confident to suggest marketing strategies for various services to clients. Just done that recently. It crosses the line to my main job, working in Search Marketing, a little but to be honest, anyone who has not thought about Search Marketing for their site should do that immediately. That is almost the fundamental of the Internet these days.
