A native Californian, growing up mostly on the beaches of Southern California. The author overcame multiple family dysfunctions and successfully raised two bright and beautiful children before continuing her education and career. She is technical in all things, examining life as a pass time.
Having beat the odds, Ms. Clark believes it is possible for virtually anyone to do the same. It is astounding, the number of people in this world that will justify their bad behaviors with their poor upbringing, or the number of people on this earth that think the world owes them something because they were deprived in childhood. Ms. Clark is living proof that the past does not have to define you. The past has shaped her, taught her, and formed her cognition, but it does not define her. It is her fondest wish to pass this serenity on to the greatest number of people possible, and somehow improve society, even if only a tiny bit.

One former supervisor of mine actually nicknamed me Don Quixote. So, naturally, I thought I could spare some of that idiocy for newbies in the workplace. Or, maybe I am just stabbing another windmill.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
As a student, I usually "discover" the ebooks I read in the requirements section of the syllabus. However, for pleasure, I usually browse Amazon. In the near future, when I have time to breathe, I will be looking in Smashwords for Indie books.
This employment guide is written to address the generational differences that often hinder success and/or happiness in the workplace.
