Answering Reader Mail: I Know Who I am and I Know the Difference

I got an email from “CT.”  Their question is below.  

“Hello there - I don't know how soon you will see this, but I'm hoping today.  :-)  I need your advice.

I am trying to get hired by a company and have been on two separate interviews with different departments and I have finally decided that I am needing to tailor my interview to the position these executives hold.  My first interview was for the CFO and CEO of the company and I truly wanted that position.  The CFO liked me...I missed the mark on the CEO.  He asked me the question "what is the difference between an Executive Assistant and an Assistant".  Now I know the answer to that...and there could be many variations.  What I was wanting to know though, does the person he interviews and would potentially hire, have "leadership qualities".

Another Clever Lesson from Hollywood

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have been remiss.  I have been getting all your fan mail and questions though I have been behind in posts.  And the odd thing is I have about 10 things I want to write about, from answering questions to other tips I have.  I’m currently under the weather, coming off a huge project, and tons going on in my personal life - all good things.  You know - family reunion, family visiting from overseas, 3 weddings, but am only attending one - a destination wedding, and expecting another houseguest in September internationally as well.  So, it’s been busy to say the least. 

I’ve been reading SWITCH by the Heath Brothers about how to change when it is so hard.  So following some of their rules, I figured I’d post A POST instead of the ones I should be posting (answering reader mail).  I figured SOME presence is better than NO presence or waiting for the BEST time. 

So, if you haven’t seen Monsters University yet, don’t read any further because there will be spoilers!
