I need some help with this reader’s question…

This post might get me into trouble – but I’m going for it because I’ve been truly baffled on what the hell is going on out there. I have people who come to me ALL DAY LONG and ask me for marketing advice. I never tire of giving it – what I tire of….(and this…

#FridayReads – This Is Water by David Foster Wallace

I’ve been going through some things in my personal life that are really hard. Like anyone, I have good days and bad days. This week, I had a really good day. My mentor, Robert Brumby, had mailed a package to me and when I opened it, this 137-page book fell out. Now, it’s a small…

#FridayReads – Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

It’s been a while, my friends. I have read books but failed to share book reviews, but this one….this one was too good to not share with all of you. I got to the end of the book and thought, “I’m jonesing for some more Shonda!” Yes, it was THAT good! What else you got? …

The longevity epidemic

In 1977, my mother died of lung cancer. She was 39. I was 6. It was devastating to our family. We were already a two-income family in the seventies (a precursor to the norm found in the 80s and beyond). It was financially overwhelming to our family as my dad busted his ass to keep…

A new year, a new focus

A new year is here. I don’t know about you, but my 2017 started off with a big ol’ flat tire, however, I didn’t let it get me down! (Pun intended!) As the Lexus was towed away to the shop to have the tire patched, I had time to reflect and share what the new year…

#FridayReads – Deconstructing Digital by Sheri Fitts

I’m never quite sure when I hear Sheri Fitts name now if I think of her Newfoundland, Aboo, first or the chlorophyll lemonade recommended by her on our recent breakfast together at Harlow’s in Portland, Oregon. Either way – Sheri Fitts is unforgettable in everything she does, including her book “Deconstructing Digital“. Much like Sheri,…

#FridayReads – The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown

Warning – only read this book if you think you’re strong enough for change. After you’re done reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown you will not be able to go back and be your old self. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! I picked up this book thinking it would be a light…

#FridayReads – Keep It Simple by Joe Calloway

When Joe Calloway contacted me and said he was putting something in the mail to me, I waited in breathless anticipation because I knew if it was a book, it was going to be good. Joe, once again, did not disappoint with ‘Keep It Simple’. In this week’s #FridayReads review, I am sharing three lessons…

#FridayReads – Survival Lessons by Alice Hoffman

How have I never heard of Alice Hoffman? The writing within Survival Lessons was so beautiful and so thoughtful, I was left in awe. I read this book on a recent flight between St. Louis and Boston and am sure the two gentlemen I was sitting next to could hear me audibly gasp as I…
