Barbara Winter, author of “Making a Living Without a Job” is one of my sources of ideas and inspiration in my business, since 1999 when I first read her book (long before I had a business, I knew I wanted one!)   As I read a blog post of hers, I found thoughts coming to mind about how MY clients, whether they are current job seekers, or have found new jobs after working with me, could take these ideas, “10 Ways to Feed Your Joyfully Jobless Spirit” and apply them to a job search, or, on the job.   Barbara says: Read More
