Carnival of HR: Turning Points

Originally posted: November 24, 2010 on TrishMcFarlane.com

I take the Carnival of HR pretty seriously.  I remember the first time I was asked to participate and as a new blogger, it was an honor.  There are carnivals that are serious and ones that are funny, ones that have no theme, and those that pick posts apart.  All in all, the best thing about the Carnival of HR is that there is something for everyone.  I hope that this edition has everything for everyone.  As we head into a holiday season and a time of reflection and thankfulness, I wanted to hear about moments that were turning points in peoples lives.  Earlier this week, I shared my moment that changed my path in A Road Less Twisted.

I then threw out a very personal challenge to any writer who wanted to participate in this edition.  They were asked to tell a story of a life changing moment and to let us inside an event that altered their path.  So, without further ado, I give you……
