The Uplevel Your Position Challenge was a quick introduction to seven proven career development strategies. I understand the frustration and confusion that career planning can produce and that is the reason that I created the Uplevel Your Position Email Course. Enrolling in this inner work will lead to the outer results you desire.

Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC): May 1-31, 2021
The basic idea is to challenge yourself and your audience to do something consistently for 31 days – it’s blogging for me. That’s right, I will be blogging daily this month. In April I brought you the Uplevel Your Position Challenge and in May I am challenging myself. I hope you’ll join me back here each day for a new article. I’ve got lots to share and a special announcement once I complete the challenge. How will you challenge yourself this month?
