My Three Words for 2015

My Three Words for 2015

Posted on 4 January, 2015 in Personal

I’ve been seeing a lot of people do something that’s pretty awesome: my three words. Instead of posting New Year’s resolutions, people I really admire, like Jessica Lawlor, pick three words to define the big picture for the year ahead. Started by Chris Brogan (someone else I mucho admire) in 2006, the […]

My Get Gutsy Story: Small Wins and Book Blogs

My Get Gutsy Story: Small Wins and Book Blogs

Posted on 31 December, 2014 in Personal

Warning: This post is the result of word vomit. It’s my thoughts (mostly) unfiltered. They’re disorganized, ranty, and ridiculous. And I curse sometimes. I’ve never moved (or even traveled) across the country. I haven’t started a business (yet…you never know :P). The only marathoning I do is of the Netflix variety, […]

Does Your To-Do List Have Any Verbs?

Does Your To-Do List Have Any Verbs?

Posted on 29 November, 2014 in Productivity

Take a look at your to-do list. This may seem like an obvious question, but does it actually have anything you can do? Verbs, people. I’m talkin’ bout verbs. You can read all the lifehack posts you want about how to get your to-do list done, but they don’t address any problems […]

Hey, everyone! I’m doing something different today. Most of you don’t know this, but I also run a book blog. I’m hosting a month-long challenge over on that blog, and one of the topics fit perfectly with what I usually write about over here. So, I decided to repurpose it! […]

Well, at first glance, this looks kind of pathetic. But I’ve written other posts for sites I guest blog for that have not been published yet. It’s not as bad as it looks! Haha

Hey there! So I’m going to try out something new. You come here, you see that I haven’t updated in a month, and think I haven’t been writing. But I write a lot, just not always here. But how are you supposed to know that? I thought that to give you […]

Your Content Marketing Quarterback

Your Content Marketing Quarterback

Posted on 13 September, 2014 in Marketing

Last Sunday, surrounded my purple-clad family, I was watching the Ravens season opener when something clicked. The sportscaster said something that made me yell, “football is just like content marketing!” I needed to leave five minutes ago in order to avoid getting caught in the “game’s over” traffic in Baltimore […]

RSS is great. It will always be some people’s preferred method of reading content. It also makes a lot of awesome things possible. I mean, just look at how many Zapier zaps use RSS. But from a marketing standpoint, RSS ain’t so hot. We’re in an age where tracking and […]

HelloFlo Gets Periods – And Marketing – Right

Posted on 21 June, 2014 in Marketing

How often does a marketing video make you laugh out loud? How often do you watch it several times in a row because you laughed through some of the jokes the first few times around? For me, who can laugh at almost anything, it’s still not often. But that’s just […]

Posted on 11 June, 2014 in Personal

Phew. Part 1 and Part 2: done. More work than I thought they would be. Demand Success withdrawals are here in full force and today’s Vocus webinar didn’t help as much as I needed it to. So this post will hopefully knock out two things: finish my series on my time […]
