    Eventual Millionaire, hosted by Jaime Tardy, is one of my regular entrepreneurial listens. Each week, she interviews a different millionaire (or someone very close to it) about how they got to where they are. The 12/1 episode, titled Six Months to Six Figures with Peter Voogd, is by far my favorite episode. Peter lays out a very actionable system to get you closer to whatever success and freedom mean in your life.

  • At First Sight: Things Recruiters Notice About Resumes

  • Answered: Should I Put a Local Address on My Resume?

    I just had a conversation with someone around this very question. As a recruiter, I can tell you that we do look at where someone is located when reviewing his or her resume. Some of us will even screen you out if you're too far away and we don't offer relocation (I've done it).
