“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

Happy Thanksgiving from My Family to Yours

By: Gini Dietrich | November 23, 2011 |

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and, as I sat here last night trying to decide what to blog about, I though it’d be fun to ask my team what they’re thankful for this year. The only rule? They couldn’t be thankful they have a job or for their families or all the stuff people always say. We know you’re thankful for that stuff. And you’d BETTER [&hellip... Read More

A Business Book Reading Tool

By: Gini Dietrich | November 16, 2011 |

I love to read. When we were kids, we had one tiny B&W TV and my parents let us watch only 30 minutes a day. So, while my brothers were outside making toys out of scrap wood, I had my nose stuck in a book. I love to read so much, in fact, I majored in English literature in college. A degree I knew I’d be able [&hellip... Read More

Getting More Done: My Secret

By: Gini Dietrich | November 7, 2011 |

I was scrolling through my Twitter stream a couple of days ago and I saw the following phrase: Why bosses should beware of pasta and peanut butter. But then I got distracted and never had the opportunity to click through to see what it meant. Until now. According to The Corner Office at BNET, it has the following meaning... Read More

Today’s guest post is written by Lisa Gerber. My stepfather and mother were visiting me this past weekend and I was looking forward to it. I happen to know my stepfather  has been a bit concerned lately that I have taken, in his opinion, perhaps some unnecessary risks in my professional life. So I was happy to have the opportunity to defend my position, in person. [&hellip... Read More

Are Schools Killing Creativity?

By: Guest | October 27, 2011 |

Today’s guest post is written by Craig McBreen. Years ago, there was a boy who spent much of his school day staring out the window, daydreaming. To him, school was like the clink – a penitentiary so void of inspiration his imagination often left the room. His creative spirit needed an outlet, but it was so stifling in there. Kids dream big Children are imaginative and [&hellip... Read More

  Today’s guest post is written by Marc Girolimetti. I’ve been blessed by living among entrepreneurs my entire life. I’ve learned a lot from them and they inspired me to drop the dreams of being the next Jacques Cousteau and head straight to Babson College, which has been named the #1 undergraduate program for entrepreneurship for 15 consecutive years. As a result of choosing a life of [&hellip... Read More

Did you see Jeffrey Immelt, the chairman of GE, on 60 Minutes last Sunday? He’s been given the jobs czar title by President Obama, with the sole charge of convincing companies to hire, and Lesley Stahl was there to understand more. Her big question…whether or not the man who has sent more jobs overseas than any other chief executive has what it takes to create jobs in [&hellip... Read More

Apologies from My Generation

By: Guest | October 11, 2011 |

Today’s guest post is written by Pamela Wright. I want to issue a sincere apology from the Baby Boomer generation to the younger generations. We have failed you profoundly. With a quick look at headlines, no one can escape the conclusion that some of you were raised without an ethical foundation. Had we done our job, we would have taught you the following lessons, and they [&hellip... Read More
