If you are afraid to take epic action on your ideas on your job search and in interviews, you will be an undervalued candidate.

Kinetic Leaders™ Own Great Jobs is a powerful presentation about the importance of recognizing the Mass of your Expertise, Experience and Value coupled with Movement and Taking Action.
