The other day I was chatting with a friend who owns a small business. My friend was complaining that she’d pitched a prospective client that she was convinced would give her their business because she knew she was the best choice.  After all she said – and I’d have to agree – she worked harder and knew more about this client’s business than any competitor and she’s had more success in this industry than any of the competition. And yet in the end, and to her great surprise, the prospect chose

  “Feeling Gratitude and Not Expressing it is Like Wrapping a Present and Not Giving it”. – William Arthur Ward   I recently read an article in which Google CEO Larry Page was praised for being one of the most likable CEO’s in corporate America. You know why? Because according to the article, he’s good at expressing his appreciation for others and the work they do. In fact, I also came to learn that making a concerted effort to express gratitude in the workplace is baked into the Google culture

  Have you noticed, Donald Trump (aka The Donald) is omnipresent these days, but his third and current wife Melania is no where to be found? And by the way, WHO is she? Am I the only one who finds her to be something of a mystery? Well an interesting article in yesterday’s paper did a great job of delving into this very subject and here’s what they found.  For those of you who don’t have time for the full article, in a nutshell, she’s a 29 year old former model

  We all get stuck from time to time. We get stuck in jobs we hate, in relationships we’ve outgrown, in routines that bore us and in habits we know we should break. The list goes on. At some point we realize we need to fix it. We NEED to make a change. -But then the question becomes, how? Well, I’ve found the key  to making a change is to start by changing your story. I know. You’re thinking, I came here for help. WTF are you talking about? A

  I can’t say enough about naps. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. Ok maybe I may be a little obsessed. But here’s why. After my morning cup of coffee, I just don’t want any more caffeine during the day. It just doesn’t appeal to me. And yes, like you I do get to a point during the day when I just run out of steam. So, when that happens I find a little power nap, just 20 minutes or so, has a way of making me feel rejuvenated without the same crash

I found this article and wanted to share with you all! After all, it may not come easy, especially if you’re quiet by nature but there are times when you’re going to HAVE TO step out and shout about your talents and accomplishments. The key is doing it – without- bragging. One important ingredient? Instead of highlighting how you’re better than others, emphasize how you’re better than your own past.  For instance, have you noticed the dramatic improvement in the quality of this newsletter over the last year?

theSkimm is my recommendation for “must have” site of the month! (Second only to this site of course.) What it is: A daily newsletter that goes out at 5:59 a.m. each morning with Reader’s Digest-sized bites of the day’s most important stories. Each blurb features a brief synopsis of the news, some background and analysis, and the takeaway, or as the name suggests, theSkimm. The goal is to give you just enough to keep you up on current events and give you something pithy and smart to say during cocktail hour.

I love, love, love Ted Talks. Here’s one that I think you’ll love too. It’s called, “Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I’m a Model.” In a nutshell: Tall, slender underwear model, Cameron Russell (who we want to hate but we can’t ’cause she’s so smart and nice)  admits she became a model not so much because of hard work as good luck. As Cameron tells it, she’s a model because she won “a genetic lottery”. In this fearless talk Cameron Russell attempts to pull back the curtain on the glamour and mystique of
