She scoffed when I told her I write emails…

  I was in the Delray Beach Marriott. I had just wrapped up a solid two-hour networking extravaganza at the famous and insanely valuable Job fair at the end of AWAI’s Bootcamp. I was in the middle of a gaggle of copywriters waiting for the elevators. We were hyper and jazzed about our careers and the opportunities that […]

Was trick or treat on Mainstreet a SCARY waste of time?

I took my kids to Trick or Treat on Mainstreet last Friday with my kids. It was fun, but I couldn’t help but snicker behind my mask when business owners claimed that it was a good way to get in front of people and give back. Was it really? I remember being herded from booth to booth, my […]

A web designer I recommend.

I’m excited to be collaborating on some website projects with Karim Ardalan, the co-founder of Rapid Sites. I met Karim two years ago at a B2B Expo in Albuquerque. He helps small businesses create their website in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The only problem with that is that a lot of companies aren’t sure what […]

Help, it’s too tight!

Have you ever taken tried something on in the dressing room only to find out that not only is it too tight, but you’re stuck? And now everyone in the store will hear your cries for help as you try desperately to loosen the zipper and release yourself?? … yeah. Me neither. Well, something similar happened […]

Use social media to be agile.

I first saw Mandy’s work for other people on social media. We were open to changing over to someone new, and we’re happy we changed over to Mandy. It’s gone from general writing and social media management to helping us curate our personality in the community. The most successful thing Mandy’s done was during our […]

Use social media and press coverage to find true fans

Mandy is my publicist. She writes articles for the magazine and the local papers and also posts articles on social media. It’s well worth the money, and it gets rid of the headache of ‘I have to write this article.’ Mandy takes care of it. Since I hired Mandy, I have more of a continuous […]

The love couch

I don’t want to brag, but the minute I got home from Bootcamp everyone wanted to cuddle with me. My dog was first in line, because he was the first to come thundering down the stairs at three in the morning ready to greet me with licks and affectionate doggy lean-ins. Then came Quinn, ready to […]

My husband is going to hate this (and love it)

I know it’s wrong, but I can’t help it. I have a rivalry with my husband over money. Even though he has always made more moolah than me, I still dream of raking in more than he does. When I told him today that I was offering a package where my clients get daily emails […]

Eek! It’s a black widow. Kill it!!!!

I saw a black widow on the way to my car at the airport on Saturday night. She walked across a parking space, under a black corvette, across the street to a messy web where she snacked on yesterday’s butterfly. Ever since I moved to New Mexico I have been terrified of black widows. One of […]
