Tackle your workplace and job issues by reading Alison Green’s Ask A Manager. This is my favorite blog, hands-down. Alison has practical, real-world advice.

Do you wish you were a better speaker/presenter? You should check out Toastmasters. I’m an officer at Twilite Toastmasters in Tempe and love it. Toastmasters are friendly, club meetings are fun, and I love improving my speaking skills and helping others improve. Find a club and drop in anytime, they’re everywhere.

What are your resolutions in 2014?

I resolve to watch less Netflix. Just kidding! I’m a homebody and Netflix is my bestie. But I do resolve to continue to improve my speaking skills and to finish my second masters: an M.Ed in Instructional Design.
