When To Put A Blog To Bed

July 19, 2012

I met a great writer recently who just put up a post on his blog potentially “putting it to bed.” He had been at it for over five years and had started feeling drained. I don’t think he’s officially shutting down the site, but he’s stepping back to see how (and if) he can get back […]

What Do You Do With Your Information?

September 14, 2011

One of my classes focuses on Marketing and the Public Purpose. Essentially, how can we address the world’s problems with effective marketing. And no, this isn’t about monetizing starving children or anything, but think about how you know we have an issue to address: marketing. Public service announcements and anything regarding social change require marketing. […]

Women Count

September 9, 2010

When I previously wrote “I want to make a dent on this world,” I truly believed that I have every opportunity to accomplish that. I just need to do my part. What I may not have said is that sometimes it gets a little hard to remember that kind of a goal when you get […]

Being the Gatekeeper Means You’re the Default

August 5, 2009

It has already been acknowledged that my generation loves collaboration. There is nothing like working in a team to make you feel like you’re going to accomplish something. When you compare that to the hording generations before us, it presents an interesting dynamic. If you don’t understand the “hording” reference, think about those people who […]

The Value of Honesty

June 9, 2009

**The below post is featured on the Minnesota Chapter of the American Marketing Association Blog. Much criticism can be found on the web for the current state of marketing. A lot of it is around how blatant companies are getting about pushing a product. It’s so out there. Yet times are forcing marketers to approach […]

A Story of Change: Chapter 3 – Handling the End

May 27, 2009

I’ve always been a big fan of The Deadliest Catch. This show has been mentioned about in numerous blogs, especially when it comes to the leadership of the captains. While those men are quite admirable, and I know what it is like to be the daughter of the Skipper, it was the end of the […]
