Leap of Faith

Welcome! So, this is my first blog post.  I never considered that I’d actually become a real blogger. A dear friend of mine recently made the suggestion and I adamantly resisted the idea.  What would I actually have to write about that would be “interesting” to the outside world?  But, I suppose after many years of her listening to my uniquecrazy -ironic-these things would only happen to ME stories, experiences and rants, maybe she had a point. She reminded me that from them all, I continue to glean many invaluable lessons and gain a lot of insight – some of which might be helpful, applicable, or even entertaining to others.  In the spirit of Leap Day, I’ve decided to take a Leap of Faith and launch a blog.

By day (and sometimes nights and weekends in this economy), I’m a recruiter. I make my living by being a professional matchmaker. Yes-trust me, it sounds much easier and more altruistic than it actually is. You’ve seen how Patty Stanger gets when her Millionaire Matchmaker dates give it all up on the first date?  That’s pretty much how I feel when one of my recent-graduate candidates tells a potential employer (my client) that he wants a starting salary of 100K plus unlimited vacation time on the first interview.

March marks my 6th-year anniversary as a professional recruiter. In addition to helping people and companies find each other and live happily ever after, I’ve also become fluent in stalking, therapy, coaching, negotiation, interrogation and conflict resolution.  But I couldn’t be more grateful – it’s truly amazing how these skills also apply to everyday life.  You’ll see…I promise.

Frankly Speaking: For those of you who know me, you can attest that my name truly fits me -Frank. Candid, direct, say-it-like-it-is (sometimes too bluntly) FRANK. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about tact, diplomacy and sensitivity – but I’ll always be honest.  So, in my Frank way, I’ve decided to use this blog as a way to share some of my tales, adventures, thoughts and ideas in hopes that you might be able to empathize, sympathize, laugh or maybe even learn something.

In honor of today’s Leap of Faith, I think that this pretty much sums it up!  Here’s to stepping out of the “comfort zone!”
