“Well, May was a great month for me. I achieved my dream… Launching my own radio show. When the announcement went out to my network, it generated a lot of emails and telephone calls. Some congratulating me and others questioning my decision.” Said Battoe.
“Everyone had the same questions… ‘Why?’ and ‘Why now?’ The why was easy… It was my dream and it was on my “Bucket List”. The ‘why now?’ was harder. Most of my family and friends said ‘I thought you were going to slow down and take it easy. You are working 6 days a week and have a full coaching practice. Why on earth would you give up a Saturday afternoon?’
Well, here is the “Why” for my radio show… I have been involved with the job market for over 3o years. I have been through three recessions, but I have never seen one that is as devastating as this one. My goal is to use the radio show to reach as many people as possible. To build their self confidence, be their sounding board and be their partner in achieving their career and life goals. This is a very difficult job market. We have more supply than demand. People are faced with a lot of rejection resulting in self-doubt.”
As you see, Career Advice Plus focuses on much more than just the job search process, though, it’s main thrust IS to help listeners in that quest and it's sponsored by "6 Figure Jobs." Whether someone is looking to “step up” in the corporate world, land their first big job, or simply get back into the corporate world, Career Advice Plus is designed to guide listeners through the proper steps while Karen acts as your personal coach and, what I like to call, a “career therapist.”
It’s a call in show… so you, and other listeners, have the opportunity to ask specific questions and initiate topics by, well… CALLING IN!
“My belief is you can achieve any goal you want if you have six things: Positive Mental Attitude, State of Mind, Focus, Emotional Intelligence, Confidence and an Action Plan. The show focuses on the positive. If I have to say something negative, I always leave the caller on a positive. I get a lot of satisfaction when I help people in the job market or life redesign.”
