We Are Women, Embrace It

August 30, 2010

I am particularly proud of a piece I have over at Forbes this week. It’s a reminder that there is still a long road ahead for women in business, but that we must be active in our journey. I hope you take a moment to read it and share… This is an interesting time for women in […]

Pushing Conspiracy

August 26, 2010

As a journalist and blogger, I know that part of my own role is to question. It could be policies or habits, other opinions and my own. In fact, I’ve had to stop myself from having every title be in the form of a question because that’s how I think. All the drama with WikiLeaks […]

Does Being Pro-Corporate Make Me a Joiner?

August 24, 2010

I like structure. I like learning from people who have come before me. As I like to say, “I can think outside of the box, but there needs to be a box.” That’s why I enjoyed my time in the corporate world. Sure, there were days that are a little frustrating, but that’s how it […]

Scanty Fashion Not Just Inappropriate for School

August 18, 2010

Recently I read a story by Aisha Sultan in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch called “Clothes Send a Message.” Sultan wrote about clothing brands that claim to be geared toward the 20-something woman but seem to advertise for teen girls.

August 11, 2010

As I head off for Virginia Tech, I thought I’d give a little summary of what I’ve learned from my summer watching Cardinals baseball. And of course, I’ve managed to learn business lessons, but don’t worry, I know about RBIs, batting averages, and why you’d make a call to the bullpen. When the Air is […]

Using the Tickle as a Springboard

August 10, 2010

I used to be fearless. Over the past few years, I’ve become more aware of the little tickle of fear that squirms in my stomach. I think the more aware you are of what you can lose, the more you are aware of the threats. There’s nothing like knowing that everything you thought would work in […]

Being the Constant New Girl

August 5, 2010

I would like to think I’m a pro at being the New Girl. I’m getting ready for move number thirteen, attended six different schools before high school and regularly walk into a room ready to make friends. Once you leave the academic comfort zone, however, you find all kinds of situations that force you to […]

Learning from Mom, the Digital Way

August 3, 2010

Like many Gen Y women, my mother is my best friend. My generation has been considered the victims of helicopter parents, assuming that we can’t function without calling mom or dad for every tiny emergency. While I don’t want my parents to solve my problems for me (and hope they never call my boss), a number of us […]
