Hot New Podcast — Launching Mavens Do It Better — Happy Halloween from NOLA

I read Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point at a time that I was in the middle of a huge transition in my life, after getting fired from a job I loved because someone decided that my light was too bright for them. I had just bought a new house in Seattle and was struggling with — “ what am I going to do with my life, am I gonna take this lying down, am I defeated, how could I have let this happen.” I was so distraught I waited two weeks to tell my parents what had happened.

What I Learned from Casper About “Ghosting”

What I Learned from Casper About “Ghosting”

“Ghosting” — I don’t like that Casper the Friendly Ghost’s profession has been given a bad name. I mean what did the friendliest ghost you know do to you? When I was a kid the Casper of my childhood cartoons, Golden Books and comic books wasn’t like all the other ghosts, he was different, he made friends with people and rejected haunting people. Again the friendliest ghost you know. He would never modern day “ghost” anyone.

A few thoughts on getting through, what happens after a suicide, when you are the one(s) that are left. What do you do, how do you cope and make sense of things? This is a personal story of my family.

When You Break Up With Your Phone & Invite The Quiet

When You Break Up With Your Phone & Invite The Quiet

I have thirteen Twitter accounts on my phone that I “manage” or do things with for either my two companies, a smattering of clients, organizations, and a few family members (they get stuck sometimes).

I have six Facebook accounts as well, three Instagram, only one Snapchat, a myriad of messaging apps and conference calling software.

Countless email addresses, seven that I actively use daily.

A bunch of Office 365 Tenants.

And now double-digit Microsoft Teams.

One Slack, yes just one.

And I am absolutely and utterly angry that I now wear readers, which I lend to many to read menus.
