We are all certainly feeling the impact of this horrific virus, but don't be disheartened because there is hope. The hiring process is different due to social distancing, but companies are still hiring. You can expect to have a video interview rather than a face-to-face interview. My suggestion is that if you have never used the video format to meet with others, you need to practice! Set up a Zoom meeting or FaceTime call so that you can become more comfortable within that format. It will feel very stilted at first, but after a few tries, you will relax.

Although companies are hiring, most of them cannot give you an actual start date for being in the office due to the health bans. Some organizations will hire you to work remotely until the bans are lifted and we can reconnect with society. Others will not. If you are feeling you just lost a job that will never come back, don't give up. Think about skills you have in another area and take some time to develop them so that you qualify for another industry. Also, if you are truly feeling that you have to work NOW, remember that there are so many essential worker positions out there needing to be filled. You don't have to have medical training to help in many of the areas where help is desperately needed.

Another thing you can do while you are waiting to find a new job is to get organized. Engaging in an active job search includes many steps:

Revamp, refresh, and reformat your old resume. When was the last time you looked at it? Are you aware that many of the things that used to be on older versions of a resume no longer apply. Including outdated information says a lot about you. Invest in your future by getting professional help. Having a new resume made, a new cover letter and get some help with interviewing. Things are different now. Get some help so you can stand out to a new Hiring Manager!

I can help.

Are you ready to transition from one career to another?

Don't do it alone.

Take the mystery out of the job search process and get EXPERT HELP with our state-of-the-art career coaching system.

Don't you owe it to yourself to make your job search easy?

Stop procrastinating and take a step forward. Invest in yourself and enjoy all of the successes you have been searching for. Statistically, people who hire coaches become four times more successful than people who go through a career transition alone.

Marcia Wieder and Why to Work with Angela

Angela's Inspirational Speech at Gateway Community College

In 2020 I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils and began using them for my personal use. I found that they had so many beneficial effects on my life that I decided to sell them in 2021. Everyday I find more and more uses for the oils from one of the best and most beautiful thieves hand sanitizers to the amazing use of peppermint oil to chase away pests from eating the plants in my garden to curing nail fungus. I learned about a powerful combination of oils (lavender, stress away and frankincense) that when combined and inhaled release stress and reset your emotions so that you are no longer blocked. Digize is an oil that when rubbed on your stomach, takes away indigestion. Imagine never having to take antacid pills again! The products are amazing and include disinfectants, cbd products that contain no THC, and the purest makeup and personal care products.

While at a writer’s retreat, I was introduced to Kidscents Geneyus. As it was diffusing, I felt that my creativity and ability to write was tremendously enhanced. The words just flowed so smoothly. It was incredible!

The oils are powerful and completely natural. As I researched the company, I was very impressed not only with the purity of the products, but with the mission of the company. They really are focused on helping to motivate the people they interact with. They stand for integrity at every level of the business and work diligently to create and produce oils and blends that will help everyone.

I am a writer, and when I write I look for a peaceful atmosphere in which to write so that my stories are both clear and creative. I am amazed at the difference in my writing when I diffuse the Young Living oils. The Boomer Chick’s Guide to Online Dating is an example of the creativity I had while diffusing the oils. I was given the opportunity to create a book that has many teachings, funny stories and ah-ha moments along with essential support resources to help anyone who wants to venture into the world of online dating.

I have put together some bundles such as Boomer Chick Dating and a bundle for writers, called Amazing Authors and for those looking to develop their careers, Job Search Success.

I hope you will enjoy the book and I hope you will browse the Young Living site to see what oils will fit into your life. Young Living has changed its policies so that now both the sales representatives and the customers have the option of receiving a discount. If you want to purchase products, please read the options and decide whether you want to purchase products that will earn you a 24% discount. There is no pressure, and I am available to answer any questions you may have. I hope you will try these quality products, as I have. Please let me know of any positive affects you have experienced from using these products. Enjoy!

Dream Dare Dance

Next Meeting: April 2nd, at 12:30 pm, reach out for details
(Meetings are held the 1st Saturday of every month)

Are you a woman between the ages of 25 and 85? Are looking to connect with like-minded women who will guide and inspire you? Are you ready to bring some new changes into you life to add passion, motivation and action that will move you forward?

Then Dream Dare Dance is for you!

Dream Dare Dance is a movement around the world for women who want support and friendship that will help them start dreaming again. Often, after women get married and have children, they put their family first and stop dreaming. The mission of this group is to dream of something that will enhance your life; dare yourself to do it; and we will all dance in celebration of your victory. Our members have accomplished great things: they have brought new love into their lives, lost weight, started businesses and developed an attitude of gratitude. What is your dream? Come join us.

We are celebrating our eleventh year meeting in Orange, CT. The group members are here to support you as you follow your new dreams. We look at what's new and good in our lives every month and continue to build on the good until we are living lives that are in alignment with our purpose.

Come as a guest to see what we are all about. We welcome new members and are anxious to celebrate all your successes. For more information:

Online Mastermind Program – Five Weeks to Freedom, Winter 2022 image
Home & Home Office Clutter –
Impacts and Solutions That Work

Join Georgia Day and Angela Schutz for our first Clutter Clearing Mastermind Program of 2022. Join us in our fourth year of offering mastermind programs. This is a hands-on program, with laser focus on home office and home clutter remedies. We specialize in strategies to help you continue the clutter clearing you may have begun but not completed. We also give you techniques for dealing with interruptions to your clutter clearing plans, so that you do not get discouraged or give up.

This virtual program is for you if –
  1. You use a desktop or laptop computer and use software.
  2.  You are willing to have a dialogue with other people in the program, just as you would in any other group (Note: everyone will have a new zoom link to access the program each week; no one other than participants and administrators are allowed.)
This program is NOT for you if –
  1. You only have access to a cellphone or tablet to access the internet. Why? The technology used needs a larger screen.
  2.  You are unwilling to enter online discussions with the group. Group interaction (asking questions, giving suggestions, etc.) is essential to learn from each other and to encourage progress. Remember, only administrators and participants will see the information.
What to expect –
  1. Lots of fun as the group decides on projects to work on – some as short as 5 minutes!
  2.  Choose the time and group that works best for you. Group meetings every week via Zoom at 6:30 PM U.S. Central Daylight Time (4:30 PST, 5:30 MT, 7:30 EST) beginning Monday, February 21st, 2022 with program concluding Monday, March 21st, 2022 or noon Central Daylight Time (10 am PST, 11 am MT, 1pm EST) beginning Friday February 25th, 2022, ending Friday, March 25th, 2022.
  3. Your program hosts working right alongside you on projects and discussing their progress
  4. Valuable resources we recommend, typically after we have tested them ourselves
  5. Techniques to help you work toward a Clutter-Free future
  6. 100% refund of fee for group 1 guaranteed until 11 PM U.S. Central Daylight Time (9:00 PST 10 MT, 12 EST) on Saturday, February 26th, 2022 (or for group 2 on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022 at 11 pm CDT {9:00 PST 10 MT, 12 EST} for the Friday program) 
What Others Have Said…
“This is an excellent program” — M.D.

“Format of the program is great! The information and short sprints of clutter clearing are very helpful” — A.S.

“Length of the program – Like the short and sweet: — R.P.
