Today’s Big Idea on SelfPerspective: one of the most important tools in your job search that will accelerate your quest for success.

Inspiration is the salve that helps us deal with all that makes us uncomfortable. It moves us to a belief that we can overcome.

Today’s big idea focuses on change and how recent news accounts regarding the big three business coalition may be a tipping point to the long awaited transformational reform of healthcare.  We will look at those issues and four healthcare career paths that I believe will provide talented and skilled executives with career and financial growth opportunities.
