Girl on Fire.

Thank you to Kim Krause Schwalm for recognizing me as the Girl on Fire for the month of February in The Girl’s Club Facebook group. It is such an honor!  

I’m attending finishing school.

Recording a podcast is a lot like going to finishing school. At least, that’s what I like to tell David Wolf (my wonderful producer) whenever he gives me advice on how to sound more polished and professional during the show. Last week we had an interesting discussion about how to sound like an authority, even […]

How’d this turd get on the windowsill?

I got my son a box of pranks for Christmas (because he loves doing practical jokes). It came with a ice cube with a fly in it, a bloody bandage that lets you pretend that your finger was stabbed through with a nail, and of course, fake poop. When Calvin first got it, I could […]

Another valuable blogging resource from Todd E. Jones.

This week I’m going to be interviewing Todd E. Jones on my podcast. Todd is a content strategist, copywriter and web designer from Conway, Arkansas. For the past 15 years, he has been building websites and helping companies develop the content for their websites. I’m looking forward to hearing his advice on how entrepreneurs can […]

Do you have the perfect Christmas gift?

When I was pregnant and living in a small apartment in NYC, mother in law gave me the perfect gift. A month’s worth of house cleaning. I loved it, because I was getting huge and being pregnant is exhausting and my sense of smell was a million times stronger than before. Again, I loved it. […]

Beat writer’s block with this trick.

I’ve been “working” on a memoir for the past 15 years. Most of it is in my pile of diaries. I’ve spent a lot of time typing out my notes from years ago and compiling a huge scary mountain of documents that don’t make sense. …. And I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about […]

A musician and an entrepreneur walk into a bar…

I enjoyed getting interviewed by James Newcomb on his MusicPreneur podcast. Listen here. We talked about how to build an audience, and be able to reach out to them quickly, easily and cheaply at a moment’s notice whenever you need them. I hope you enjoy it.

My Thanksgiving travel tragedy.

The sound was like nails on a chalkboard. Worse. Metal on bare metal. The worst part about it was that I knew my brakes were worn down to a stub. And that was very bad news, considering that I was hoping to embark on a long car trip the next morning. I pulled into the […]

In case you missed my digital marketing presentation…

Wednesday morning I gave a presentation on digital marketing at the Los Alamos Chamber Business Breakfast. If you didn’t make it, I’ll let you know what I talked about. I don’t think it makes sense for anyone to try to do every possible thing online. Rather, choose the two or three most profitable and useful marketing […]

Introducing a better way to promote an art exhibit.

I have a lot of experience promoting art. The trick is to get people to come to the gallery. And usually that involves planning events and parties revolving around the art. The problem is that people show up in droves for art openings, but once the opening reception is over it’s hard to get people to […]
