I once had lunch with a writer, someone I knew well from high school, who had brought her play for me to read while I was sitting in front of her. The play was cleverly written; it was a roman à clef – or, perhaps more properly, une pièce de theatre à clef. It was about office politics that she had experienced, and there was a vampire replete with cape and the other accoutrements of vampiredom.
When I was in elementary school, I declared that I'd be a writer. By high school, though, I was sure I'd go to law school. That too, changed over the years. In college, I had a professor ask me to consider switching my major to English because she enjoyed my writing so much; it would be a "waste of time" to pursue anything else. I wondered if she was high. (To be clear, I hadn't yet declared a major, so, perhaps I was high. No, really. Maybe I was. It was the late '90s and I don't need your judgment. Great, now I'm off track.)
I heard a story at a school assembly many years ago.A sly young man approached an elder and said, "I know you have wisdom and know all things. I hold in my hands, behind my back, a small bird. Tell me, wise one, is the bird alive or dead?"The wise master knew that he was being set up and so he thought very deeply for some time.He knew if he said dead, the young man would bring his cupped hands forward and release the bird alive....more
On Last week’s Bubble Hour podcast the topic was “people pleasing and surviving the holidays”. Despite some wonky screw ups at the opening of the show (gotta love live-to-air recordings!), the episode was full of great insights from our guests. If you are dreading the holidays ahead, it is worth a listen (or two)....more

Busy day today! I’m trying to zip through as many tasks as I can this morning, because I’m taking the rest of the afternoon off! Why am I being so decadent on a Thursday, you ask? Cause I’m going to see The Hunger Games Trilogy in the theatres!
Hello!Today I will share with you the second part of this short Marketing Plan tutorial. Yesterday we obtained a pretty accurate view of our industry, its path, its pace, and its trends. And we have compared that with our 2014 performance, so it is very likely we already know which direction we have to focus in order to grow our business.Step #3: Set up your own general goals. These can be easily set answering to the following questions:...more
As my girls grow up, I plan on telling them that they need to pay more attention to the smart boys than the jocks. They need to go for the geeks. Maybe I feel that way because I was secretly a geek growing up, trying to hide it and fit in. Or, perhaps it is because I married a science nerd. He was the shy, quiet geek in school that the girls ignored. Now, Chris is a smart, amazing man and incredible husband and father. Who can beat that?...more
