I love to brag on my friends…

I work with a great marketing guy at SPS Family. He’s pretty humble about the stuff he shares so today, I’m using my platform to give him some props! Keith Craig is a marketing consultant and has a really great newsletter called the M@rketing Minute at the firm. He recently posted an idea about keeping…

Long-Term Care isn’t an awareness month…

For the third year in a row, I have attended and spoken at the International Long Term Care Insurance Conference and this year’s event in Chicago did not disappoint! With more than 1100 in attendance, it was not only well-run but virtually paperless! Here are my top three takeaways…and some awesome pics in between! You…

Sleep becomes you…

I think John Lennon had it wrong. It’s not love we need more of…it’s definitely sleep. After suffering from three weeks of bronchitis, laryngitis, and a sinus infection where my faithful physician doled out all the right meds. In the end, what finally cured all that ailed me was…NyQuil. It konked me out and I…

What’s your reputation number?

I live in Missouri. I grew up here and I plan to stay put. However – my business is all over the country and yet, everyone seems to think financial services has such a wonderful reputation no matter where they are and I am here to tell you that’s an ‘alternative fact’ and there’s a…

This is not about politics – it’s about people #ShutdownStories

Before you go sending me a bunch of messages about the shutdown, reasons, policies, and politics, stop – this post is not about any of that…it’s about the people afflicted by the shutdown. Those people are real and suffered financially – you might want to ask yourself, “How can I help them best?”  Community Leadership…

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…
