Cool Cleveland 08.29.12 Rising Stars
From: Thomas Mulready <>
Rising Stars

If you wold have told us a few years ago that Cleveland's emerging chefs
would be world famous, or that Ohio's unemployment rate would be 1%
better than the national average, or that we'd have $11 billion of new
development in the region, or that Rust Belt Chic would take over the
zeitgeist, well, even with our eternal optimism, it would have been hard
to believe.

But it's real, and we have our rising stars to thank. Akron's Shivering
Timbers premiere their new release, green builders huddle in the
Treehouse, there's a Greek Fest in Kamm's Corners, a sidewalk sale on
Larchmere, and Emerging Chefs host a midnight brunch under the stars.
Use our mobile app to catch them
on the rise. --Thomas Mulready Download the

this "rust belt revival" narrative and allow Clevelanders the chance to
define what's happening in our city.

To, as Trubek says, "...tell it our (Cleveland's) way, from the
inside-out, instead of having others describe us to ourselves..."

What Women Can Learn from Men
5 Easy Steps to Boost Your Interviewing Confidence

I've been career coaching clients for many years and there's a major
difference between most male and female job and grad school candidates.

At first I thought it was a random occurrence, but, after hundreds of
interactions and tremendous success stories, I noticed a pattern: the
men would set a goal and, with laser focus, achieve it, quickly.

The women? Far more hesitation and, dare I say it, lack of confidence in
their approach...
