April 29, 2010

The Seth Godin Brazen webcast was today. I’ve decided that with the death of Elizabeth Post this week, we should acknowledge something: People are rude! Yes, the webinar started late, but unless people have the inability to multitask at all, why be so ugly? And I know people were bummed, but really, it was still […]

It’s a Sin to Settle on a Smaller Dream

April 12, 2010

I Don’t Know What That Means

April 9, 2010

When did we stop good-old-fashioned learning? Yes, we pick up business skills and lessons from life experiences, but when was the last time you picked up a text book or academic journal? I’m always late to the party when it comes to tv shows. That is how I discovered Bones this week. I have always […]

Hanging at The Daily Get Up

April 7, 2010

Hey all, I’ve just started writing at The Daily Get Up (shout out to Sharalyn). It’s a neat site that’s still growing and reports on, well, everything. If you’re from some of my circles, you’ll also know that Andy Weitsman, Blake Sunshine, and Tariq West are writing for them, too. Check out the site, it’s ever-evolving, […]
