I am often asked about rising in the ranks, getting to the next level, elevating your career. At the end of the day, they are all asking the same thing. How do I get promoted?
One thing I share… start talking about the next level early. When I had my first job, I started talking about making manager in one year. That way people knew it was a goal. They knew I was clear, driven, and set an expectation.
One more tip… Ask for it. Don’t assume people know what you want or that if you put your head down and work you will be rewarded. Sadly, the squeaky wheel applies here too.

50 for 50 Charity of the Week
Week 5:Environmental Defense Fund
This week’s donation is one of Noah’s selections. When asked what problem he wants to solve when he grows up. His answer was, “climate change.” This charity is one he picks again and again. They began in 1967, as a scrappy group of scientists and a lawyer on Long Island, New York, fighting to save osprey from the toxic pesticide DDT. Using scientific evidence, the founders got DDT banned nationwide. Today, they’re one of the world’s leading environmental organizations. In the U.S., Fortune magazine called their board one of the country’s most influential nonprofit boards. And science still guides everything they do. Please join me by donating to the cause.
