We all walk into meetings with expectations… networking, leads groups, or places we volunteer. When asked to step outside of the box, don’t be afraid to say yes. Stretch your limits (grow your boundaries), or take chances (work outside your comfort zone). You may not be at your best, but you will certainly stretch your […]
More often than not we underestimate how what we do affects others. At no time is this more prevalent thans when we present about our business. What you think of as mundane (because you do it and see it every day) can be enlightening, amazing, or impressing to others. Just because you say “So What?”, […]
Have you Googled yourself lately? Really you should! Look what shows up on the web, but also look under pictures, videos and more. If you don’t know what’s out there your can’t rejoice or panic? Better yet – set up a Google alert for your name – ww.google.com/alerts/ You will thank me later!
I often take pictures of Bacon… but seriously, it not mine. It’s O.P.B. (Other People’s Bacon). The point is, try to promote others rather than promote yourself. Find a way to promote OPB or Other People’s Business. That way, they may return the favor and promote you in return (but don’t expect it!).
Last night(Sunday), our TV’s started glitching. I call our provider and was given a scripted answer. I posted angst on social media. This morning (12 hours later), same problem and same response.

Some were strained and some in ruins. But from the outside, all I saw was the lights and the party. Perspective changes […]
When you are part of a band, you have to be willing to be the part that adds character, and not always the character, that defines the band! This weekend, I had to play a real instrument (guitar, congas, and backup vocals), while playing a virtual cello on the iPad while using a mic to […]
Can you hear it? Can You See It? It’s what I like to call the fill in the blank post? I see these all the time… because people don’t have the time to post for themselves (they hire temps to do it). “I don’t have time for all this social media stuff!”. We are all […]
We have all the parts, but we have to learn how to put them together. Like a Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head… We can add the face and parts to the toy to make them serious, funny, or just weird. You can set it and forget it, or interchange new parts… but ultimately the final […]
A lot of times, we are strangled by our own success. When we are so successful, we have to manage that success. Do you plan time to explore new ideas? You can get so focused on what’s happening now, that you have no time to think long term or think bigger. Build into your time […]
