The Best and Worst Things about a Career in Social Media

I was recently named an influencer for Social Media Today, which was soon followed by an interview about my social media marketing journey. Like many entrepreneurs, I started my business based on a need in the marketplace. Truthfully, it’s been a rocky road, especially in an ever-changing industry. After nearly a decade, I’m just glad […]

The Argument for Automatic Email Responses

I just returned home from an eight-day vacation to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Before leaving Pennsylvania for my tropical respite from work and winter, I set my automatic reply on my email.

It's OK To Be On Your Way

Last month, my husband and I took a much-needed vacation to Jamaica. We stayed at a Sandals Resort in Montego Bay. Prior to leaving, we saw a myriad of ads for the resort. They were full of the same – a couple in their 20s with six-pack abs and a rockin’ tan. I laugh, because […]

Get Real: Sh*t Happens

It's hard to find encouragement for obstacles that occur in life. Simply put, not everything is roses. Sometimes, sh*t just happens. We all face crappy stuff. The car won’t start, we overslept, caught a cold, tripped on the steps… you name it. As a business owner, I encounter dozens of shi**y things all day. Clients […]

Should Sports Rank Among List of Polarizing Topics?

I often advocate the avoidance of controversial topics on social media.  Bar rules apply – no politics, no religion. There are times I think no sports could be added to this list. It’s crazy to consider, given that bars are where many congregate to watch games. Don’t worry. I’m not lobbying for this anytime, soon. […]

Gratitude Starts with Human Beings

It’s unusual for me to feature someone on my blog, but every so often, someone inspires you. As my years in journalism have proved, we must capture those moments.
