All it takes is 10 minutes

July 2, 2014

Okay, I am now convinced that a 10 minute interval is a very good thing. No surprise, some exercise convinced me. I used to think that if I couldn’t exercise for a solid 60 minutes, that it wasn’t worth exercising. Well, life gets in the way sometimes. I love how a quick 10 minute stretch […]

Another favorite session from Product Camp at the Microsoft NERD Center was given by Hubspot, a Cambridge-based company that is the world’s leading inbound marketing and sales platform. Maggie Hibma and Jeffery Russo, Product Marketing Specialists at Hubspot. There are no secrets really, but this makes for an intriguing title, doesn’t it? It’s all quite […]

Agile product development

I was at my favorite place in Cambridge last weekend, the Microsoft Research and Development Center, also known as the NERD Center; that’s appropriate, isn’t it? This conference was called Product Camp.  And believe it or not, I do have other interests in life besides exercise and Peeps.  Although, those two topics are more fun […]

It’s not about the marketing

Does good marketing insure success? No it doesn’t. Companies need to have substance and a personal connection behind their marketing claims. Mr. Ken is certainly enjoying a connection with his Easter Peep donut! It’s hard to see, but there is a little pink Easter Peep nestled in the donut hole.  As cute as that is, […]

How to watch the Super Bowl

So the quintessential American past time is upon us. I am not sure how I feel about the fact that Americans are most associated with sports, but I’ll let that go for now. I don’t like football. There I said it. What is the purpose of giant men (can we say 300 pounds of muscle?) […]

Social media rant

December 4, 2013

Do you love social media? Or do you hate it? Right now, I’m leaning more towards the hate side. Hate is a strong word, maybe more like annoyed. Blogging is my exception. I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all around the world. I haven’t traveled abroad much, so it’s especially […]

Now that is great customer service!

Yes I am (cheap) frugal, but I broke down and got a LLBean Visa card. With this card, I get free shipping both ways, plus I earn points for LL Bean stuff. Who needs free airline miles when you can get free LL Bean stuff? Recently LLBean offered 15% off all purchases, plus I had […]

Washing windows – la, la, la

I’m not one for cleaning. Sure, I like things neat, but I’d much rather be kayaking or meditating or doing anything other than cleaning. I even try to trick myself by saying that cleaning burns calories, so it’s good. My dear Mom is a very traditional person. She believes in a thorough Spring and Fall […]

The endless circle of marketing

If you’ve read any of my posts, you know that I love going to conferences and learning new things. I will be going to the Inbound Marketing Summit Boston in a few weeks. As I went through the somewhat onerous registration process, I got to thinking that my rant would make a good blog post. […]

Point, click and oops

The Internet allows us to do everything faster, which can be a good and a bad thing. I’m honored to be part of Amazon.com’s Vine, which is a program for top reviewers to write about new books and products. I get lots of cool, free stuff and all I have to do is write a […]
