Why “MIT” To-Do Lists Don’t Work For Me

Why “MIT” To-Do Lists Don’t Work For Me

I like to conduct little experiments with my workflows, tools, and productivity tips. I decided I was being selfish to keep the results to myself, so I’m sharing some with you! Any productivity enthusiast knows that there’s a lot of bad advice out there. Not because anyone’s trying to dupe […]

How I’m Organizing 2015

How I’m Organizing 2015

I’m all about organization. Almost to a fault. I’ll spend more time planning a project than executing it. In part, that’s a good thing. It’s so planned out that the execution doesn’t take that long. Sometimes it’s not so great. Like when I say I’m going to clean the apartment, […]

My Three Words for 2015

My Three Words for 2015

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 #GetGutsy Story: Small Wins and Book Blogs

My #GetGutsy Story: Small Wins and Book Blogs

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?

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 […]

Your Content Marketing Quarterback

Your Content Marketing Quarterback

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 […]

HelloFlo Gets Periods – And Marketing – Right

HelloFlo Gets Periods – And Marketing – Right

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 […]

I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome. (Part 3)

I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome. (Part 3)

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 […]

I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome. (Part 2)

I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome. (Part 2)

Like I said Saturday, I recently returned from Vocus’s Demand Success conference. It was a pretty big moment for me career-wise (read my little reflection thingie here), but it was also really, really fun. Yes, it was exhausting. Yes, the hotel mattress would have been comfortable if I hadn’t had […]

I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome. (Part 1)

I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome. (Part 1)

So, where to begin? Maybe with Friday afternoon. Around 6, I crawled into bed for a quick nap to recharge for University of Delaware’s Alumni Weekend. I woke up at 11…a.m. That’s right, I slept for about 17 hours. Anytime I sleep for more than 12 hours in a row, […]
