Hi. Lou Blaser here. 

My goal with this site, the newsletter, and the podcast is to provide you with the information you need to make decisions about your career, meet today’s unique challenges and thrive in your chosen career. I cover such topics as career resilience, longevity, pivots, self-management, and designing your career to thrive in the new economy.

Most of the information you see on this site and in the weekly newsletter is free for you to read, watch or listen to, but Second Breaks is also a business and my livelihood. 

Very occasionally, I accept advertising. More often, I participate in affiliate programs. Both provide some income and allow me to devote time and energy to the growth and upkeep this site, the newsletter and the podcast.

A word about Amazon

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

Please expect hyperlinks to be affiliate links in many cases, when I receive a small percentage of sales if you wish to purchase. I only recommend tools, books, and services that I either use or people I know personally. 

Integrity and authenticity continue to be of the highest importance to me. Gaining and keeping the trust of you — my readers — is paramount.

Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions or compensation as an advisor for a few companies.

If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me by using the contact page. It can be accessed on the menu above.

Cheers and good luck!
Lou Blaser
