Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Posts Tagged ‘professional

Tiger Woods took to his blog today admitting his affair and announcing some big news about his career:

I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I’ve done, but I want to do my best to try.

I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding. What’s most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing.

After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.

Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period.

What do you think?  Should Tiger quit golf or should he quit women to save his marriage?

dress for less suit

Ryan Kohnen, a 29-year-old entrepreneurial phenom and author of the book Young Professional’s Guide to Success,  provided Marvelous Girl with the top 5 ways to dress for an interview for less than $100 below:

1)      Go monochromatic. Dressing in one color is always polished and can make up for the fact that your suit isn’t Armani.
2)      Develop a relationship with a tailor.  Even a $20 pair of Gap dress pants are interview-worthy if they fit right.
3)      Discount retailers and off-season sales are your friends.  Last season’s perfectly fashionable castoffs can be yours for often one quarter of the price.
4)      Separates are an option, especially in neutral colors.  A navy cardigan can replace a navy jacket-especially when paired with a navy pencil skirt.
5)      Limit jewelry.  It can tend towards expensive or showy, and neither will do you any favors while you’re looking for work.

In Kohnen’s latest book he pulls together the advice of over 70 CEOs, top executives, and community leaders- people like Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea Company; Hala Moddelmog, CEO of Susan G. Komen For The Cure; Essie L. Calhoun, Chief Diversity Officer of Eastman Kodak Company; and Ellen J. Kullman, CEO of DuPontÑand to not only help readers find jobs, but how to do it.
