To enlighten and drive change in Corporate America

Over the past two weeks I’ve felt compelled to speak out about racial inequality, particularly in the workplace, and share my thoughts and experiences in a way I haven’t publicly in the past, which is moving people to action. The calls, text messages and  emails I’ve received have made it clear to me there’s another area of which I must get involved, further share my … Continue reading To enlighten and drive change in Corporate America

Beware the salary target on your back

If you’re over the age of 40, you may be walking around with a target on your back. And you know what it is? Your salary. Yes, as you enter what may be the pinnacle of your career success or very close to it with feelings and expectations of nothing but greatness and high wage-earning years ahead, they could be cut short. Before I launched … Continue reading Beware the salary target on your back

Should you be seeking permission before posting Zoom meetings on social media?

Everyone’s doing it. Posting images of their various Zoom conferences, happy hours, team meetings and other virtual events on social media, particularly LinkedIn. I am personally getting tired of seeing so many, but I don’t judge how others use social media. I can just scroll past the items that don’t interest me. I’m also keen on using the tools provided, whether it’s muting content, unfollowing … Continue reading Should you be seeking permission before posting Zoom meetings on social media?

I lost a client and life goes on

People lose clients. It’s just a fact of life. People who are very good at what they do, lose clients. Nothing lasts forever. I’m a believer in necessary endings, even the ones we don’t initiate. Yesterday was my last day working with one client and also the same day my work delivered big for another. I sent a farewell email to one small group while … Continue reading I lost a client and life goes on

Drive, vision and execution

It’s great to be driven. Drive is a quality I seek in others. It may be because I’m very driven myself and thrive on the energy that develops when I come across someone similar, or maybe it’s due to my bias for action. Seeing it in someone else draws me to them. I’ve even tried to infuse it in others for whom it wasn’t necessarily … Continue reading Drive, vision and execution

A message to abusers of the Paycheck Protection Program

The abuse of the Paycheck Protection Program by companies who don’t need it is egregious! It is keeping small businesses that really need it from accessing the funds to keep paying staff and stay afloat during this time. Don’t forget, all of your names will become public record and I can’t wait to see reporters and journalists expose companies that did not need this money, … Continue reading A message to abusers of the Paycheck Protection Program

This is no time to devalue yourself

This is not the time to devalue yourself. Things are happening that are out of your control. People are making decisions that affect you big, and your ability to change that particular piece is limited. In many cases, it’s nonexistent. That can be scary. It can usher in panic and fear. But, the answer to panic and fear driven by the decisions of others, of … Continue reading This is no time to devalue yourself

How I’m staying the course

I had big plans of opening my podcast studio this month. And guess what? I’m still doing it. In fact, I moved the equipment into the newly minted Triangle Podcast Studio earlier this week. Will things come together the way I planned? Probably not. But they could still come together the way I hoped via an entirely different path, and I am good with that. … Continue reading How I’m staying the course

Give people something to ‘consider’

If you think you have the answer on how others should act, what they should say or do, or how they should conduct their business, I suggest presenting it as a consideration. A consideration is much more palatable than a directive. It’s softer, seemingly helpful and can actually put what you’re suggesting into the considered set. I saw a post today telling readers to use … Continue reading Give people something to ‘consider’
