I am inundated with information about good online dating profile photos and bad ones (duck lips, anyone?!). Since profiles with photos are nine times more likely to get communication, this is a topic worth revisiting often. I am also lucky enough to work in an office with researchers who study this sort of thing, so I […]
Today’s post is from one of my favorite people, Barbara Waxman. Below, she recounts a story and interaction she had with a client who knew in her heart she needed to make a big change — but was having a hard time admitting this to herself. That is often the scariest part of change…admitting that something […]
