The Power of Service

I earned a spot working one of the most coveted parent volunteer roles at my daughter’s school – serving at the Valentine’s tea. The little boys look so dapper in their ties and coats and the girls take on a new air in their dress clothes. The teacher brings in lace linens and her grandmother’s china, a…

Tell Your Story to Sell Your Story

I was introduced to this beautiful quote was last year by one of my coworkers at Web Marketing Therapy. She sent it to me to share on our Wild Web Women Facebook page. Her timing couldn’t have been better, as I needed wise words for a client who was at a professional fork in the road, I have…

As I walked into the front door and took my first whiff of the baked goods and caffeinated happiness I was about to put in my hungry face, I was finishing an internal conversation that sounded something like this: “I don’t have time for this” “I should be using this time…

Don’t Like Something? Stand Up and Change It!

“Life has no remote….get up and change it yourself!” ― Mark A. Cooper One of my dear friends is feeling overwhelmed. She is bringing work home with her, isn’t getting enough “off” time, personal priorities are taking a backseat to work and she isn’t feeling like she has reached her true professional potential.

New Awakening, New Wild Web Woman Adventure

I left the confines of corporate hell over a decade ago. I could do my job anywhere as long as I had a computer and an internet connection, so having to commute to an office and deal with inefficiencies (water cooler talk, distractions, politics, time driving) and unnecessary expenses (dry cleaning, gas, work lunches) felt ridiculous to me….

Know What You Want, Own What You Want

One of the biggest obstacles to getting what you want in life is knowing what you want in life. In preparation for a talk I am giving to a group of amazing women in business, I researched what it takes to reinvent or reinvigorate our lives – personally and professionally.  Being clear on what you want is the most challenging…
