Shall I Wear a Jock Strap to Deliver your Coffee?

Did you know that there are more CEO's in America named John than there are female CEO's?  That was the message yesterday morning according to the radio DJ on my  local station. Now I know that John is a rather common name, but still? That number can't be true!  That bit of information stayed with me all day and into the evening.  I looked it up and found that according to Catalyst, there are only 24 female CEO's in the Top 500 Companies -- that's only 4.8%....more

Time of our lives

Today's Blogher #NaBloPoMo isDo you think we are currently living in a good time for women in history? Will we look back at this time period in the future and say that there was equality? No. Period.

MY THREE EX WIVES REQUEST FOR CENSORSHIP

Writing my blog has never been a secret, but it wasn't something that I felt I needed to broadcast five years ago to the THREE EX WIVES in my life.  Nor did I want or need to get their permission. No, my Hubby didn't pick up another Ex Wife; my Ex Husband did which brings a total of THREE onto the scene. ...more

How Not to do PR

I’m certainly not an expert when it comes to public relations and social media marketing, but I’ve got enough experience to know when it’s done poorly. I’ve been blogging since the dark ages of blogging, when nobody would dare ask for compensation for a product review, and I’ve seen how the landscape has shifted (and I love it, frankly). I’ve watched people build names for themselves via Twitter, and end up with careers managing brands’ social media platforms, or admired them working hard promoting new products.
