Welcome To Careers And Professional Development From Defined Sight!
Mrs. Defined Sight here and I am most passionate about careers and professional development.
We discuss our careers and professional expertise in the About Us section of our webpage.
Having achieved 3 degrees by the time I was 24, as well as earning 6 figures/year by the time I was 28, I know my way around the workforce.
I also encourage folks to always evaluate your personal situation, and determine if it matches your stage in life.
Which is why I left my high-income salary, for a slightly lesser one, and am completely OK and fine with this situation!
I have more time for family, faith, activities with in the community, and oh yeah - blogging!
Training in interns, developing staff and teaching others are areas that I take the most pride in at work.
The topics in Careers and Professional are created to help you achieve the level of success you professionally desire.

Did other strength training workouts. Or just got up and walked around when my Fitbit buzzed at me. [Read more…] about The Benefits Of Standing
