    I had the awesome opportunity to speak at the ETP Charlotte Networking Group. This career management training education team located in Charlotte, NC is hosted by Empowering Today's Professionals (ETP) faculty leader Amanda Sherman.  She is also CEO and founder of Gala Affairs by ATUrBest, which provides event planning services in the Charlotte area.  On behalf of the ETP executive committee, I also had the honor of presenting a leadership excellence award to Amanda.   This places Mrs. Sherman in the ETP Who's Who Hall of Fame, for outstanding leadership in pioneering the Charlotte Networking Group, as a local community service for over a year.

    In this training session I covered the topic of Running Your Career with a Business Owner Mentality, as the CEO of ME, Inc.. One of the hats worn by business owners is being a sales person.  Selling definitely comes into play during a job interview.  The end of an interview is your opportunity to help the interviewer decide that you are the best candidate for the job.  ETP member, Tiana Reid, shot the video below. I think she got my best side :-)  Whether you're the first, middle or last person being interviewed, this closing creates a memorable "Wow" moment.  Each interviewer will definitely remember you. Practice this close using a recording device and the mirror to achieve a high impact value proposition that eliminates the competition.
