Stop dreaming of ball gowns and start dreaming of power suits

Sometimes I ask my friends what they wanted to be when they grew up. The answers are always beautiful, and I think that if we all followed our dreams, the world would be filled with more fire fighters, ballerinas and a variety of amazing circus acts (but thankfully, no clowns).…

How Do You Know You're Ready For Launch?

We all want a big-splash launch - no matter what the offering. Who wouldn't want mountains of accolades and recognition for a job well done?

In the period leading up to your big day, the best advice I can give consists of one very important word - plan.

Planning is critical to a successful launch, so make a list of everything you can possibly do to make your event as grand as possible. Here are a few suggestions to consider:

Congrats On A Great Year! Here's A TESLA!

If you want to increase employee morale, you better dig deep because money doesn't only talk, it SCREAMS.

Let's face it. People perform their daily jobs because of what you pay them in salary. It's why they work 9-5 but it may not light a fire under them to work 5-9. 

Now imagine what they would do if you augmented that salary and rewarded them for their involvement and contribution to the company's successes...say at bonus time??

A startup translated as…

Obsessing About Mr. Wonderful

I'm giggling because I'm mildly obsessed with Mr. Wonderful these days. Anyone who's read my blog recently can attest to that. 

Could it be because he kinda reminds me of Paul Emerson, ruthless and calculating CEO of Blue Coat Capital? 

Check out my novel Unlikely Venture if you're…

Women Make Better CEOs...Just Ask Mr. Wonderful

Women make better CEOs.
At least they do to Kevin O'Leary, the shrewd and calculating entrepreneur of ABC's Shark Tank. But this isn't conjecture; he's got numbers to prove it.
According to Mr. Wonderful, female-run companies offer him greater returns on his investments and quicker exits. 
“If I want high returns with low volatility, that equals a woman.” You heard it here, folks.

Who Doesn't Love SWAG???

I'm a big "Shark Tank" fan. Love the way they refer to themselves as a venture capital firm on steroids. Well, maybe only Mr. Wonderful made that one episode. But it stuck with me...because it's kind of true. =)

I love ALL the sharks. I think they each bring their own unique elements to the show and I've purchased more than a few products while the entrepreneurs are busy…

Celebrate The Lifestyle, Not The Product

As a small business owner I was always challenged with finding new ways of reaching fellow handbag junkies who would buy my designs. In retrospect, I tried to boil the ocean and I didn't reach my target at the right level. The primary goal was always to move units and recoup costs so I'd have funds to pump back into the business. At the end of the day, a lot of one-and-done customers didn't do much to sustain my rapidly shrinking market share.

After some research, I determined my…

Please Brand Me Now!!!


Argh.  Sooo challenging...and so permanent.  It needs to be just right.

Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.  But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?

You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field?  Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…

The Case Against the Flawed (almost) SAHM - SAHM Project - Entry Seven

Self-evaluation is never easy. No one likes to admit when, or how many

times, they are wrong. This is especially true for me. But,

self-evaluation is necessary for any real, beneficial changes to occur

in ones behaviors.

And it seems on days that I am most adament about avoiding the

blemishes on my character, my husband turns into a gigantic, gaudy

mirror, waiting with baited breath to point out that I'm not as sweet

as I claim to be.
