    I’ve been steadily working my way through the perils of transparency and credibility, and I’ll wrap it up today with a discussion on publishing “personal stuff” on my blog. This fear stems from the fact that people who are close to me sometimes read the site, and maybe I don’t want my real-life connections to [...]

    “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” To be fair, the forthcoming situation isn’t really the best representation of Murphy’s Law, but my classmate mentioned it as an immediate reaction, so I figured it can’t be THAT far off base! I’ve mentioned before that MBA students dress much better than undergrad students, mainly as [...]

    As promised, here’s another “scary” post, in the interest of transparency! So, I really enjoy sharing the times when I’ve done well on a project, but I feel that it’s only fair that I also share the complete debacles that I’ve had a hand in. Lucky for you, I happen to have a recent debacle [...]

      Can purple be a power color? My photog husband told me to, “look powerful and commanding”.    Did it work? Dress: JC Penney Heels: Alfani Belt/Necklace/Earrings: NY & Co. Like the outfit?

    “Pride goes before the fall” is conventional wisdom, often told to children to help them understand that arrogance will generally come around and bite you. The same conventional wisdom can be applied to corporations, especially in the slowly-recovering economy. I’ve had two conversations about corporate arrogance over the past week, so the resulting blog post [...]

Then I find out that apparently people don’t actually know what these acronyms mean, how they work, or why they’re useful. No wonder they haven’t been implemented yet! Let’s have a little primer on CRM and [...]

    This has been a slow week compared to what I’ve seen in the past month or two, so I’m kind of excited about relaxing at home this weekend. Here’s what I’ll be reading during my relaxation:   For the entrepreneur, via Paul Graham: Relentlessly Resourceful For the advertisers, via XKCD: Mathematically Annoying Advertising For brand-launchers, [...]

    My husband and I were on a tight time schedule to attend a wedding last weekend, so I asked him to bring all of the necessary items that I needed to dress for the event. He was a groomsmen, so we had to be there early enough that it would work best for him to [...]

      Summer is here, and as the temperatures rise, the dress code rules seem to fluctuate as well. I’ve talked before about the illusion of professional dress, but this article in the Wall Street Journal made me laugh. It talks about shorts suits being all the rage this season, and how they’re perfectly office appropriate. [...]

    So, the Dallas Mavs won the championship! I’m not a sports fan at all, so this didn’t rock my world, but a lot of people went pretty nuts about this event. So nuts, in fact, that they bought championship t-shirts the night of the game or the morning after the game. It makes me laugh, [...]
