Need career advice? Life is too short to be miserable about what you do for a living, especially because succeeding at a job or business that you dislike is usually much more difficult than succeeding at work that you love!

2. The archives for my “Ask A Career Coach” column contain advice that I have written for readers asking for recommendations about decision-making, career planning or change, job search, and/or business success.
