It's been way too long since I've talked about Tandem Empowers here on the blog.
Many people here in the United States - and, more so, around the world - have to endure a lot of 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.
On top of these already disquieting statistics, many of these same people have to endure colossal tragedies.
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. During those moments, though, I’m quickly reminded that this, too, is what Tandem is all about.
Tandem is, of course, about consulting, resume writing, and career development. Essentially, inspiring people to get more 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 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.
I routinely support disadvantaged people with help in the professional development arena. I also like to have a Charity of Choice to which I donate a portion of my sales. I am currently deciding on a Charity of Choice for 2016 (maybe two!). Stay tuned.
Okay, back to resumes and consulting.
