Why Offer Free Career Advice Now?

Over the years, Michelle You has been helping many seasoned and young professionals as their career coach or mentor with their career advancement and overcome obstacles in their personal lives too. Like we mentioned earlier, Michelle often runs multiple businesses and tries to balance her work and life, so she doesn't have enough time to help as many people as she wants. A few year ago, she started to think about building a platform where she could help more people and a broad range of professionals online. 

Helping people grow always gives Michelle You a great sense of satisfaction and makes her feel that it is the best way to utilize her expertise, because her love language is to express love and care through acts of service, as described in one of her favorite books The Five Love Languages. So far, she has been volunteering her business services, including career coaching services, to help her community and people she cares for a long time. Michelle You would be thrilled if she could offer her help to a much larger group of professionals and provide valuable information and advice for them. 

Now in 2022, with her children off to college and more time at her hands, Michelle You believes that it is time for her to turn this website into a blog for you and other people, including jobs seekers, engineers, other professionals, and entrepreneurs who are seeking free career advices from time to time, need some help on job interviews and career development or interested in learning something new. 

Michelle You's plan is to share her rich experiences and insights as an employee working at various jobs in tech companies in China, Singapore and USA, and an even longer history as an entrepreneur, executive recruiter, career coach working and living in San Francisco Bay Area, particularly in Silicon Valley, the global center for high technology and innovation.

Michelle You is a seasoned entrepreneur who has founded/co-founded multiple businesses, a versatile professional with broad working experiences in multiple jobs at tech companies, a happy mom with two kids, a plant lover who enjoys visiting botanic gardens with her husband, kids and friends. 

Michelle You believes that building this blog is a great opportunity for herself to organize her thoughts and ideas and put them into writing that will be stored in the digital world and have long-lasting impacts on people's career and life in a very positive way, particularly for people in her professional network around the world, professionals who follow her company MichelleYouBiz.com on LinkedIn, as well as for her extended family and friends she cares about deeply. It is also a platform for our visitors like you to learn fun facts about plants with us and relax in gardens at MichelleYouBiz.com, for Michelle You to share her tours at California botanical gardens as a great getaway on weekends for professionals, show off her photography of her own gardens from time to time, or enjoy her beloved plants on both of our websites www.MichelleYouBiz.com and Gardens.MichelleYouBiz.com.

In the meantime, Michelle You is also using this blog as a resource for her own children to help them build their professional careers. One of the major reasons for her to write in English for this blog is for her children, whose native language is English, to understand well. Michelle You believes that the career advice and insights she offers for readers like you now will still be beneficial for her own children in the future for their career and life. This blog will be an additional tool for her to help her own children in many ways.

For our visitors who prefer to read the blog in their own native languages such as Chinese, German, French, Spanish, Japanese or other languages, we have added Google Translate tool button at the top right corner of this website, right next to the Search 🔍 button. It is for your convenience only and there is no guarantee on the quality of translations. Please refer to the original English contents for clarifications whenever necessary. 

Our website is hosted on Blogger and our video channel for botanical gardens is on YouTube. Both are Google's products that may not be visible for most of people living in China. There are a large group of oversea Chinese who are interested in our contents and feel more convenient for them to learn through videos. For theses audience, Michelle You is thinking about making some videos in Mandarin Chinese on career advice, about jobs at tech companies and life in the US in the future, but it will take a lot more time and efforts that she can't afford now. You're welcome to follow us on LinkedIn for updates about this plan or other changes in the future, it's also a great way to be notified about our new posts. 

Due to limited time and resources, currently, Michelle You is planning to only offer Career Guidance Services for a limited number of seasoned professionals who need help to land jobs at tech companies primarily in San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA. Her plan is to focus on building this blog for now to make it a valuable and inspirational platform for an abroad range of people and readers like you.
