Upon learning of the passing of North Face founder Douglas Tompkins, I felt inspired to speak out about corporate philanthropy and some of the great work being done by companies with a conscience. However, it’s a genuinely tricky endeavor because the altruistic behavior of a business often originates from the moral compass of the founder(s). And sadly, it can die with the founder as the company is passed on to children, restructured, or and acquired by those with deep pockets […]
It’s 2016, My life in the Gig Economy is going well. I just hope my blog is still up to date? With so much going on professionally, it’s hard to stay on top of your own marketing game sometimes! But I’m still me, and working solo has been great to me so far. And just so you know – I’m not that girl in the photo. That’s a little game I like to play with stock photos just to keep […]
Beware of Promises of Cheap and Easy Content! I am always on the lookout for assistance in producing content, I simply only have so many hours in a day to do what I love. I’ve explored outsourcing, interns, guest writers, content clearing houses, and even fiverr.com as potential avenues to provide supplemental content development services. To date, I have seen little in the way of quality content that I would use – aside from unpaid communications from thought leaders and […]

Most of us are jumping onto the WordPress bandwagon these days, I know i get misty eyed when I see the amazing level of control and capabilities the open source content management platform offers. And with all good things related to technology, with widespread adoption comes enterprise level security concerns. Hackers learn how to exploit weaknesses and then have a virtual smorgasboard of vulnerable sites at their disposal. Security, as well all know, is paramount these days. I hate to […]
I am in mourning for a man I never met, nor ever will. A man I know little to nothing about, in fact, but a man that I respect. I don’t know his policies nor much about his politics, but I know through his actions he provided the world with a legacy that will outlast my time on this earth. That man is Douglas Tompkins, co-founder of The North Face, or #TNF as the youngsters may refer to the outdoor-oriented […]
Cassie is a sassy little mutt with more determination than most humans of superior intellect, and she often gets what she wants. When times are tough and it’s time to get my hands dirty, I look to this little bear for inspiration. Found somewhere under a bridge in Texas with just three teeth and a doggie dream, Cassie was rescued, flown to NH on a private plane, and spent months in and out of foster homes as her energy levels are endless.
