Are you ready for the new Twitter layout?

This is the reason NOBODY is an expert. I went to sleep one night and woke up and *POOF* Twitter upgraded to a new layout for the desktop application. This time, though, I approve. It wasn’t really a surprise… Twitter has been hinting at an upgrade and on January 22, 2019, they posted that some…

Can we just STOP with the “#Hustle” stuff already?

I love a good workday – I really do. You check stuff off the list. You high-five yourself (or in my case, I hug the cat) and know, “I really hustled today!”  Except…there’s a new kind of hustle out there and it’s just not healthy. Working beyond the 40-hour, 50-hour, 60-hour work week I hear those…

Females and Finance – You Should Join Us!

About a year ago I realized I hit an artery. This was just when the #MeToo movement was in full chatter and so many organizations were outing men who acted dishonorably. I was sitting right in the center of this and wondering, “Do I press on with Females and Finance?”  You see – what I…

The Super Bowl of Posts…it’s right here, friends

If someone said to me that they did not like Michael Strahan, I would have to stop talking to them. It’s impossible to dislike the man…because what I love the most about him is how he reinvented himself over the years. He went from noise to sound. Already a successful football player (he has broken…

If you build it (right)…they will come

A few years back I stood in front of a group of women in Indianapolis dressed as Kevin Costner from Field of Dreams and taught about marketing tools. “If you build it… they will come.” Only – I failed in that messaging. It should have been, “If you build it right…they will come.” Let me…

Who haven’t you talked to in a while?

One of the questions I get all of the time in social media marketing is, “How do I get new clients?” Perfectly acceptable question, except – so many of us have old clients we haven’t talked to in so long don’t you kind of wonder what happened to them? I’m just as guilty of this…

Did you know about Facebook Watch?

There’s another video channel competing for your time and eye space, but….did you even know it exists? Also – did you know it’s been around since August 2017? Facebook Watch… Lack of awareness can hurt even the largest of brands. When I read the eMarketer report about Facebook Watch fitting into the digital landscape, I…

The Starwood Security Breach – and how you can protect your future privacy

Hello, fellow travelers. I wondered how long it would take for us to get “the memo” about the Starwood security breach that happened….FIVE YEARS AGO. (<—yep, you read that correctly) In 2013, about 3 billion users personal data was compromised and in the fervent art of transparency, the Marriott thought they should share this with…

I know that’s your favorite shirt, but it has holes in it…

Who else has said that to their child? Their spouse? You have these favorite clothes (or socks or pants) and they are cozy and feel good and you want to keep wearing them. But they have some holes here and there, but the majority of it is is still covering the necessary parts – so…
