Climbing the Broken Ladder: Advancement

Last week I began writing and illustrating a new self-help book that will give tips and tricks to the low-on-the-totem pole workers. Or what I like to call "lifers"

Last week I began writing and illustrating a new self-help book that will give tips and tricks to the low-on-the-totem pole workers. Or what I like to call "lifers"


Currently I am the author of two books available on Amazon.


It's Not Poetry: The Innermost Thoughts of a Stressed-Out Housewife

Relationships: The Good, The Bad and The real


The first is a poetry book about motherhood and marriage. The other is a book about resolving relationship issues rather than calling it quits. Both of these have made me so proud to be a writer. However, I have been in clerical professions for the past 15 years and for 10 of those years I stayed at the bottom end of the sea while I watched several of my co-workers climb that broken ladder.

What did they have that I didn't? What were they doing that I wasn't? So many questions ran through my brain consistently. At times, I began to resent them for moving up while I sunk. Over the past five years I have been creating, noting and carrying out ways to move from that brick wall desk of yours up to a cushy office with a view. Things like:


Spotting the star.

Learning to mentor.

Creating connections out of thin air.

And becoming a yes man.


The goal of this book is to help others that fell into the regularly scheduled program of employment like I did and don't see that light at the end of the tunnel yet. Of course, with some humor and profanity mixed in.


If this type of book peeks your interest - or you know someone that would fair from this book. Subscribe to the site or become a member. I will keep you all up to date on the progress of the book as well at its release date!
