Random thoughts at a marketing conference

June 19, 2013


I had a blast at a recent marketing conference in Boston. Why? I love going into the city. I love learning new things, especially about one of my passions, marketing. The thoughts were streaming through my mind the whole day. I thought you all would enjoy seeing how I think. As I’m walking through downtown […]

Kayaking into the wind

June 5, 2013


Yay, the warm weather is here and kayaking can begin. I love kayaking more than anything. Well, maybe not more than Peeps. We went out kayaking on Memorial Day. It was sunny and the temperature was a perfect 70 degrees. Ah yes, but the wind was pretty fierce. Picture paddling like mad, only you’re moving […]

How to make a good first impression – or not

March 27, 2013


I had to go to the bank to deposit a check. I’m already annoyed because I hate going to the bank. Long lines, annoying music, video screens in my face, tellers trying to sell, sell, sell. You get the picture. All I want to do is get in and get out, no conversation. The teller […]

Are you a Facebook fan?

March 20, 2013


I love how my blog ideas come to me through my everyday activities. This post came out of a simple question from my husband, “Do you hit “like” for Facebook Fan pages?” My first response was, “No way, I have no interest in big companies and their products. They only want me to “like” their […]

What is your perfect day?

February 27, 2013


Let me make you think a bit more – what is your perfect work day? We all could easily come up with our perfect vacation. I’m blessed that I love my life and my work, so I can also come up with my perfect work day. As a matter of fact, this day occurred just […]

January 10, 2013


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 10 years to get […]

A new love

October 4, 2012


I have a new love. My dear husband doesn’t have to worry though, because it’s a store. I’m currently in love with Whole Foods. I still love Trader Joe’s, since they do tend to be cheaper. But, Whole Foods is a nicer store. Let’s be honest, Trader Joe’s has a funny smell. It’s not that […]

Move beyond the hype

September 27, 2012


Would you want to look like this? Would you buy a product that promised you would look like this? The marketing copy for the product says:(taken directly from the Beach Body website) “Man Up. Commit to the Beast. And go from scrawny to brawny in 90 days or less. Get big. And get noticed. With […]

Lesson learned from a visit to the Boston Tea Party Ship

September 7, 2012


What better way to spend a beautiful sunny summer day than near the water? A dear friend invited me to visit the newly opened Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum and we had a blast. I always love it when I’m inspired to write a blog post about my everyday experiences and this was no […]
