Today’s guest post is written by Lisa Gerber. I had an interesting conversation at a holiday cocktail party with the COO of a ski resort. He was sharing with me a complaint he had received about the quality of grooming on the cross-country trails. It was bothering him and he was trying to decide how to respond. The problem, he explained, is people have high expectations [&hellip... Read More

Welcome to the New Year!

I’m baaaaack! I hope everyone had great holidays. I did…and I’m dragging a bit this morning because of it. I was getting used to sleeping until 7:30 every morning! Because it’s the first day back for many of us, this isn’t going to be a heady blog post. I have a feeling. I think 2012 is going to be a very good year. It’s going to [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is by Molli Megasko. It’s Facebook question of the week time. I hope I don’t disappoint anyone, but I’m replacing Gini Dietrich this week.  She asked me to help her out as she actually is taking some vacation days, believe it or not. Her question to me was… “Molli, you’ve worked at Arment Dietrich for nearly six years. During those six years, what [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is written by Lisa Gerber. As I write this, it’s the morning after Christmas. Boxing Day. We’re cleaning out the boxes here. Getting ready for the weekend, New Years, and more importantly taking advantage of down time to clean out. I love this time of year. It’s quiet everywhere. My house is quiet, the blogosphere is quiet, and my newsfeed is full of comatose [&hellip... Read More

What’s Your Number?

Today’s guest post is written by Erika Napoletano.  No, this post isn’t about a crappy pickup line or some other awkward online dating experience. In all honesty, it’s the result of a pretty awesome dating experience (at least one that doesn’t involve a guy showing up at my house drunk with a gun – but I digress – and yes, that actually happened). Still digressing. Over [&hellip... Read More

2012: A Year Destined for Entrepreneurial Success

By: Guest | December 27, 2011 |

Today’s guest post is written by Rieva Lesonsky. Although I’m a bit superstitious, I’m going to go ahead, channel iconic 1950s television personality (and songwriter, who knew?) Steve Allen, and say I think 2012 is going to “be the start of something big.” I know there are naysayers out there who will disagree, and point out the numerous reasons I’m being too much of a Pollyanna, [&hellip...

Five Tips for Preparing for 2012

By: Gini Dietrich | December 14, 2011 |

I’m not going to lie. 2011 has been a terrible year. I’m thankful it’s nearly over. But 2012? It’s shaping up to be a good year. A really good year. Sure, we’ve hit the double dip recession and the economy doesn’t look like it’ll rebound until 2013. But it’s still going to be a good year. Why? Because we’ve gotten lean and mean, we’ve figured out [&hellip... Read More

Women Are Our Own Worst Enemies

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” - Alice Walker There is a very interesting debate happening online. It’s being highlighted with the Miss Representation Sundance film about media being derogatory to women. The trailer shows media talking about Hillary Clinton “looking haggard and 92.” It shows a clip of Sarah Palin being asked by a reporter if she has breast implants. It [&hellip... Read More

Five Tips for Working from Home

Today’s guest post is written by Molli Megasko. Whenever I tell people I work from home, they respond with an “ah…” But being a telecommuter means more than wearing your PJ’s all day (although, uh, that is a really great perk). As virtual companies are on the rise, you might be presented with the opportunity to work remotely. And if you’re a person who procrastinates or [&hellip... Read More
