2017 has been an unsettling year in this world of ours. The news is full of depressing stories, global relations are very tense, and people seem more disconnected than ever.
On top of this already disquieting landscape, many people here in the United States – and, more so, around the world – have to endure a lot of day-to-day hardship. About 2 of 3 people lack access to clean drinking water and about 1 of 3 people live on less than $1 a day. In a world with so much wealth, it really is unimaginable.
These realities also give me perspective. Perspective to remember that, as a successful member of society, I can always do more to help in making the world a better, more welcoming place for those not as fortunate as I.
Oftentimes, when I get into these topics, I have to resist the urge to feel as though I am getting “off topic” from the core purpose of Tandem Powered. During those moments, though, I’m quickly reminded that this, too, is what Tandem Powered is all about.
Tandem Powered is, of course, about consulting, resume writing, and career development. Essentially, inspiring people to get better aligned with their authentic selves and, therefore, closer and closer to career (and life!) satisfaction. If you’ve used Tandem's services or have spent some time here on the website, you likely know that it goes deeper than that.
My desire to empower people and communities transcends career development activities. In fact, Tandem Powered got off the ground emboldened by the belief that we are all connected as world citizens. Meaning, what’s good for you is good for me.
In the spirit of doing my part to be a uniter, here are a couple of things I want to share as we enter into the holiday season.
1) First, know that Tandem Powered is committed to the #OpenToAll campaign. No matter who you are, where you're from, who you love, etc., you are wholeheartedly welcome here. I know – from my experience in work and life – that our differences do in fact make us stronger.
2) In the #OpenToAll spirit of connection, I am going to run a promotion through 12/31/2017. If you purchase my Tandem's Essentials package for yourself and someone else, you'll receive a $100 discount. Be sure to mention this e-mail when you get in touch.
Being a responsible world citizen has always been at the core of this business. Thanks to all of my clients – past and future – for trusting me with their personal or organizational development. We are connected!
