As an introduction I wanted to let you know that I work with many professional organizations on 401k implementation and management. This sometimes falls in line with the responsibilities of Human Resources. I am now a member of SHRM so I could better understand the challenges of HR professionals. Please let me know if I can ever be of help or be a resource to you.

Sorry I did not get to meet you...I was with Einstein's for 2 great years...I was an EGM most recently. As a matter of fact, I trained Dawn K at my store. She is awesome! I have always been so passionate about recruiting and when the opprotunity to become a hospitality recruiter and I was able to take my 20 years of restaurant experience I had to take a leap of faith. I LOVE IT! My company is a national group that recruits for some of the most respected names in the industry. I have been calling Dawn every week to see how she is doing. I have a great candidate flow and I know Einstein's so well, I thought I could offer some help. Dawn did mention that you did not want to employ any outside sourcing at the moment...which I understand. I know the budgets...that's for sure! The owner of my firm has told me since my history with Einstein's that if you ever need help in any difficult to staff markets we are available at a very very competative fee! I have dealt with recruiters my whole career as a multi-unit guy and a regional guy and I feel we have a terrific level of service compared to whats out there. Thanks for listening and I am here to help and would love the chance to assist Dawn in this market or any other markets around the country. I appreciate any consideration.

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy.
