High Octane Women - How superachievers can avoid burnout.
Isolation: Isolation may start out as mild resistance to socializing, such as not wanting to go to lunch with a coworker or friend. As burnout worsens, you may begin to feel more and more like being alone. Colleagues dropping by to say hello may become an annoyance and you may find yourself closing your door to keep people out. You make excuses not to go out to lunch, or you search for ways to get out of meetings. In the most severe cases, you may get angry at people who approach you. You may even lock your door to keep people away, or come in early or leave late to avoid interactions with colleagues and possibly even family members.

When recruiting for marketing roles, companies are increasingly looking for graduates who can combine analytical rigor with the ability to apply this knowledge creatively...
The success of any marketing department depends on its knowledge and understanding of the customer. In the past, marketing professionals would apply a range of tools to collect this information.

Want to be able to charge more for your work? These three strategies will make your time and skills more valuable.
One of the biggest challenges most freelancers face when starting out is how much to charge. Or more accurately, determining what your knowledge and skills are worth. We’re afraid if we charge too much, we won’t be able to find any work at all. Or if we charge too little, we won’t be able to make ends meet.
With so many options available—from setting an hourly rate, a fixed price, a one-time charge or a combination of all three—it can be difficult and overwhelming. So how do you determine what you’re worth as a freelancer?
The answer is all about value! You have to make yourself, your products and your skills extremely valuable. Because the more valuable you are, the more money clients will be willing to pay you.

Speaking at events is a great way to generate potential business and position yourself as an expert in your field. However, problems usually occur when somebody speaks for free and needs to make money by selling from the stage.
Those talks end up being a commercial, simply not valuing the audience’s time or providing any real content.
If you’re already a speaker, or thinking of getting into it, I have put together a collection of 18 tips that may help things go more smoothly for you on stage.
When you try to be someone else on stage, it makes you even more nervous. I dress like me, I talk like me, and I say what I think. I tell stories. That may not be your style. People will try to knock that out of you. Just in the past two days, one person said I should have better ‘‘hygiene’’ and wear a tie (I wear a black shirt and have facial hair).
Returning to work after an extended absence is tough. Your network's stale. Your expertise is rusty. People wonder whether you're committed.
Shannon (name has been changed) encountered this challenge. At 32, she had advanced professionally from health care consulting to investment management, with an MBA in the middle. That's when she had children, moved overseas with her husband, stopped working, and then returned to a different city in the US.
