Facebook Truths and Lies and Psychological Motions

Facebook Truths and Lies and Psychological Motions

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.

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.

What Burning Man Taught Me About Belonging

What Burning Man Taught Me About Belonging

I was always the new kid, the transplant growing up because my Father was good at his job, a fixer. A JCPenney Department Store needed to be turned around, and so he would be promoted, he did this for his 40-year career there, and thus our family moved to many new places.

It is one of the things that made me the extrovert I am today.

Pour Some Sugar on Me — Glazed, Hot Comedy

Pour Some Sugar on Me — Glazed, Hot Comedy

Another epic night seeing comedy in Los Angeles. To be glazed, overlaid with a smooth, shiny surface. Yes, that is exactly what Mike Glazer brings to the stage during his monthly comedy cornucopia called Glazed at The Hollywood Improv (The Lab) straight up smooth and shiny goodness. Glazed is like a perfect donut. Sweet, sugary, where you feel a little dirty, a little shy that you maybe ate two or three of those sinful bad boys. (Your secret is safe with me, go ahead have one more. Cause they are DELICIOUS). Third Thursday of the month for the next helping of yum.

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.
