by Stacey Lane - Apr, 2014
As a career coach, I get a ringside seat to great brands and so-so brands. But so do you - take your experience as a consumer and think about your favorite brands. What's their emotional appeal?

  Eight Reasons Why You Need a Personal Brand
by Stacey Lane - Feb, 2014
I used to be skeptical about personal brands. They felt contrived and a bit manipulative – and far too self-promotional for my liking. I like to think of myself as discerning – I hate feeling like I’m being sold on anything. I was wrong. Personal branding is just another way of saying that you’re clear about you. Your brand is your authenticity. It’s that simple. What shifted for me is that I see branding as a way to...
  How learning his brand led to new-found confidence... and a job
by Stacey Lane - Jan, 2014
One of the best parts of my job is seeing clients be successful. Especially when their success comes as a bit of a surprise to them - unexpected or unintended success. That's what happened to Rob, one of my Brand You Boot Camp participants. What I love about his story, and why I asked him if I could share it with you, is that Rob was a bit skeptical about personal branding. You know I love a challenge! Rob has a backgr...

by Stacey Lane - May, 2007
Career coaches don't have a magic formula for helping their clients (if we did, we'd be bottling it and making millions!), but why has career coaching received so much press lately? Pick up any magazine and you're likely to see a reference to coaching: Oprah, Redbook, Self, Fast Company, Health, Inc., and many other business magazines. What career coaches do offer their clients is an easier way to career success than if they...

by Stacey Lane - May, 2007

by Stacey Lane - May, 2007
Many of us have had a major stumble at some point in our careers. (Okay, well I haven't, but let's just say that I have "a friend" who's made plenty!) Perhaps you made a bad hiring decision, took the wrong job at the wrong time, or trusted the wrong colleague with sensitive information. You had a sense, or a feeling about it, but for whatever reason, you choose to ignore it. Consider these scenarios: You wake up on Mo...
