Six Weeks

Networking with hundreds of thousands of people is good and bad.  And then?  Then it’s frightening. Networking has been whats gotten me into a lot of different things in life.  The people I’ve networked with over the past 8 or so years have been everything from liars and thieves to some of the best people…

Can I Go To The Zoo???

Look: I’mma gonna say it again. You know, for the people in the back.
SOCIAL MEDIA ISN’T DIFFICULT
You do need to quit doing a few things, though…
…and at the risk of putting myself out of business as a Professional Social Media Maven, I’m going to tell you what a number of things are.

A Reminder

If it’s too easy…too comfortable…there’s more to it. It will always be difficult some where…a challenge in something…way outside the box, the comfort zone, the norm. It will hurt. The money will not be there (It will always be bigger than the budget). The opportunities will fall through (It will mean finding solutions in problems,…

Motivate & Excite (July 18th, 2016)

LEVEL THE HELL UP I’m in the middle of 2 class assignments right now. One is an end-of-session project.  It’s going to take a while.  Its intimidating and huge, to start with.  I’m applying to modify it slightly.  The course I’m in isn’t exactly what I do.  I know that I need to understand the…

Updates from the Docs (July 15th, 2016)

I had 2 appointments today already (it’s 10:45am.  I detest mornings.  They’re much too early for my liking).  One in Milwaukee at 7:00am.  One here in Green Bay at 10:15am. I made both. (I was a little worried, seeing as how I didn’t know how long my appointment in Milwaukee would take and it’s a…

Mediocre is still not okay.

Choices (July 11th, 2016)

Lead vs manage Walk vs talk Make vs allow Productive vs busy Grow vs stagnate Evaluate vs fail Action vs activity Mayhem vs chaos Value vs desire Classic vs trashy Listen vs hear All life carries these choices. Your outcomes are dependent on which you decide to embrace. No one is at fault for your…

Great News! I’m still as depressed as normal (July 8th, 2016)

…no more, no less (is that possible???) Today I had an appointment with a new-to-me counselor.  I don’t like seeing counselors, period.  I have to live my life everyday, they do not.  So their text-book knowledge of how to live with depression is, well depressing.  I’ve learned and implemented quite a good-for-me system over the…

I’m Tried and A Failure: A Rant.

I’m sitting here, on my 3rd pot of coffee, with my head on the table crying.  I’m so frustrated right now. THIS SHIT SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING…to ANYONE. And I can’t solve it.  I’m asking all the questions I can think of…and I can’t come up with a solution or a path to a solution….

Welcome to Summer (July 5th, 2016)

It’s inevitable, really.  I have no other words. I’m aware that summer started 2 weeks ago.  But for me?  Today.  Just today. When the summer cold / sinus crap kicked in.  UGH. BUT  a double dose of meds and I’m back at it…which is fabulous, since my to-do list is average PLUS what I neglected…

Allow Me to Clear A Few Things…(July 4th, 2016)

Ask and you shall receive answers: Take a Break?  It’s a holiday.  Don’t you have the day off? I work for myself.  On the internet.  So…nope.  No days off.  Am I going to take some time to celebrate?  If I remember in time to get downtown to join my family to watch the fireworks, yes….

Would You Please STOP Already?!?! (July 3rd, 2016)

I got involved in a conversation last night that wasn’t mine.  I have a habit.  That filter-thingy that is supposed to reside between your brain and your mouth?  Apparently the function I have it set on is “ignore”… I was at a local gas station / convenience store…picking up cigarettes and cookies and an energy…
