You're Gold

Let your Color Code guide you to the career that's right for YOU.

What does
"You're Gold"

First off, give me a second to explain. You know how you have a dominant hand? Doesn’t mean you never use your other hand, it just means your dominant hand takes control most of the time. Same thing with your personality “Color Code”. Everyone has a dominant personality color code that’s most like them.  The other colors might show up every once in a while depending on what’s going on, but for the most part your dominant color nails you; and your color is Gold.  

Ok, back to “So what does that mean?”  Read on to learn more.
