Toxicity, harassment and bullying have no place in our world, by anyone, anywhere at any time. Our world continues to change, evolve and grow. How we behave matters, “just because that’s the way it has always been” doesn’t work anymore. How we all show up every day, how companies show up is important and something that we as consumers consider when we buy and something I deeply contemplate as a marketer and a human.
We post the good stuff, the oh my goodness moments, the exuberant triumphs, what we believe in and the deep, deep sorrow. Many have written about the psychology of Facebook, but it is something I think about as it is a big part of what I do for clients and for myself to build my brand and connect with family and friends all over the world.
As a lover of comic books, graphic novels, artists, superheroes movies and TV series I’m giddy about being involved with this project. Who hasn’t spun around like Wonder Woman as a young girl or maybe, um, yesterday? To see her and so many other brilliant superheroes in print, in cool TV series and on the big screen bringing justice to the world makes my heart sing.
Thrilled to announce that I’m moderating my first education/how to panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con with an amazing group of panelists.
I’m a marketer, social media is part of my job, part of what I strategize. As a social experiment, I wonder what this does, this day Friday, Oct 13th of #WomenBoycottTwitter, this protest, this by being silent protesting being silenced. How does this affect change?
Thankful always for my parents tender loving care whenever I am with them, I am surrounded by glitter, sparkles, angels, snowmen and Santa here at their beautifully decorated home.
Sitting around the kitchen table, with coffee in hand, Mom’s zucchini bread, Dad’s peanut brittle and a turkey with my favorite stuffing in the oven, we talk, share pictures & stories, send texts and photos to family and friends near and far. The neighbors drop off treats… it is a warm, sweet and good holiday.
I am always humbled by the beautiful people in my life and grateful for every moment, experience and lesson that we have experienced together. To the Cooks, Newmans, my sweet husband Jim, dear friends and family, a merry holiday to all the things we all celebrate.
Holidays are wonderful but also hard, so much nostalgia and longing for times and people who have past or when things have changed or are no longer so. I too am looking forward to a new year and wish everyone a truly Happy Holiday season. A few thoughts from my heart to yours. Because I believe, to quote my favorite holiday movie, “If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”
Oh the terror and delight of putting yourself out there. With anything one does. Pressing The Button.
I started off as an orator back in high school on the speech team and then a theatre major. You hope that you hear a laugh a sigh, or some applause at the end of speech or performance. There are many mediums that don't have that immediate responsiveness.
