What a Waste

March 31, 2010

There’s something that I see happen all the time: the waste of potential. You’d think with the recession that companies would have figured out the extra skill sets people have. Nope. It doesn’t even have to be employers. There are tons of people who could do amazing things…and they don’t. There are two major ways […]

A Brand that Lasts Beyond a Lifetime

March 29, 2010

“Here’s looking at you, kid.” Wow. Just, wow. That line means a little something to everyone. It could be the memory of a first date, the comfort after a break up, or the suave idol a guy hoped to be. You never have to see the whole movie (though you should), but Casablanca is an […]

Make the Airport Work for You

March 25, 2010

With the potential of spring finally landing, I’m ready for a get away. I’m very excited to plan out trips and think about moving and shaking, but I’m not always excited about the actual travel part. I’ve been delayed in the airport quite a bit. Especially coming back and forth from Minnesota, you stare and […]

Don’t Even Talk to Me about the Trophy

March 23, 2010

I was a ballerina growing up. Sure, I played a number of other sports, but anywhere from 4-16 hours a week was spent in a dance studio. I was never in a location long enough to compete, so the “competition” moments for me would be at the annual dance recital. I’d be a part of […]

Are Bad Drivers Signals of Bad Employees?

March 22, 2010

Admit it. Sometimes you drive in the rain without your lights on. Or you don’t use your turn signal. Or how about driving too slow when traffic rushes by you? Maybe no seatbelt when it’s only a quick trip? After living in the DC metro area, I couldn’t imagine too many places that had worse driving.

Alternate Life Slipping Into Reality

March 18, 2010

I think. A lot. Probably too much. I used to suffer from severe insomnia, and when I saw a professional about it, they said it was because my mind was running too much. The minute my head hits the pillow, I’m thinking at 80mph. That makes it hard to go to sleep, and then if […]

What if St. Patrick Could have Tweeted When He was Kidnapped?

March 16, 2010

Since some people I know got started celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, I figured I’d go ahead and share the Irish love. Have you ever looked up the history of St. Patrick? Actually learned how he got the whole saint-thing going? Well, I honestly admit that I never did. Sure, I might have learned […]

Breaking Glass and Setting Cheese on Fire, OPA!

March 11, 2010

When I was a waitress, I worked in a Mediterranean restaurant that was owned by a couple of Greek families. They were trying to bring together the loud, large family atmosphere with fine dining. Special events would have belly dancers, and we would light food on fire on a regular basis. Even though I thought […]

Making the Rounds

March 9, 2010

While I’m not quite doing a grand blog tour like Matt Cheuvront, it seems that all of a sudden, there’s a lot going on in a lot of places! I wanted to be sure you all get to check out some neat things I have the honor to be a part of recently. Marketing the […]
