Hi, I’m Bud Bilanich, The Common Sense Guy. Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. I write this blog because I want to help you become the career and life success you can and should be.

If you want to become a success in your life and career, you’ll need to do five things.

1. Become self confident.
2. Create positive personal impact.
3. Become an outstanding performer.
4. Become a dynamic communicator.
5. Become interpersonally competent.

My blog posts are designed to help you become an expert in these five key areas. They are based on the ideas in my new book, Straight Talk for Success.

While I want this blog to be about you, I think it is only fair to share a little information about me. I have an EdD (Doctor of Education) from Harvard, but I approach my work and this blog from a common sense perspective that goes back to my roots in the steel country of Western Pennsylvania. I’m a cancer survivor. I live in Denver, CO with Cathy, my wife. I am a retired rugby player, an avid cyclist, and a film, live theatre and crime fiction buff.

I’d like to know more about you. I am very interested in your thoughts and comments on my blog posts. When you comment, please tell me a little about you and what’s going on in your world.

I hope that we can make this blog a place for dynamic conversation and the sharing of ideas on what it takes to succeed in your life and career.
