Month: June 2012

It’s Friday, and while the marketers would suggest I write something about the weekend (Weekend=good. Happy?), I’m going to just bring to your attention this wonderful tidbit I discovered while reading Timothy Crouse’s ground-breaking book about the press corp who covered the 1972 presidential campaign, The Boys on The Bus (1972, Ballantine Books). At one…

Just a quick thought, for all the recent grads posting, in their various LinkedIn groups, that they have a BA in Psych or Gender Studies or 17th century Macedonian lit, with a 3.7 GPA and want a job that lets them express themselves…um, okay.

Just to keep it super simple, for all you kids playing along at home… What Networking Is: Making a genuine connection; meeting someone new and thinking whom you could introduce them to, or how you can help them…and doing so; listening; having an interesting dialogue, even if it’s just about a sports team or why…

Before I started this business, I did my time in corporate America. No me gusta! Not like I’m going to pretend that being self-employed is a non-stop combination of pony-rides and having multiple orgasms. But I sold my soul worked for years in TV news, so even my worst day of being self-employed is better…

I have many, oh so many, shameful tastes. PS: Not just in the men I date. Today I just wasted another hour or three of my life watching, Animal Planet’s lurid show Fatal Attractions.

If you know anything about me and this business, you know…well, you definitely know too much about my dating habits, and The Kitten, sorry–but you also probably know how obsessed I am with accepting yourself. Both the bad and good. The good, the bad and the not-so-fantastic. And I say this as someone who went…

On Networking

A client, who is in the midst of transitioning to a new job/industry, was asked by her new employers to submit a bio to share with her colleagues. Her employers gave her some examples, and some of her colleagues, when describing what made them, oh, let’s be generous and say “unique,”cited past exploits such as…
