You’ve heard the phrase follow your bliss; it’s everywhere. The sentiment is good, but how do you do it, exactly?

I’m going to let you in on that magic first step — turn jobs down.

No, really, it’s true!

Stacey Brown has worked with Fortune 500 companies as a Talent Manager for over a decade. She knows that those who narrow their focus and only specialize in what they love are in higher demand and can charge more per job.

Stacey’s company, MindLink Resources, is different from other recruiting firms. MindLink doesn’t just place talent; it coaches talent. Stacey invests in developing professional relationships with the aim of growing a business based on what her freelancers love.

Listen in as Stacey discusses how coaching inspired her to carve out a niche rather than taking any and every job that came her way. After all, sometimes learning how to say no to the things you don’t love means you’ll get to say yes more often to the things that you do.
