Experiment, Learn, Repeat

Want to tell you about an experiment I ran on LinkedIn these last two weeks. I think you’ll find it fascinating — even if you play on other social media sites. Background I have devoted the better part of two hours, five days a week, to posting and engaging on LinkedIn for the last eleven

Have You Checked the Bathrooms?

I have a confession today. I am OBSESSED with the cleanliness of bathrooms. Everywhere. It probably started when I was a little girl, and my mother told me always to wear a clean pair of underpants. Truthfully that advice was about getting into an accident, and apparently, the state of one’s underpants told a lot

So you can’t find or even keep an employee?

Apparently, we have a huge problem in business these days.  The employee.  Specifically the ones we can’t find or we can’t keep.  This problem is not new.  But it is getting worse.  This seems a tad odd because, for the most part, businesses are still not at the pre-COVID level of employment. YET they face

Sexy? Business? Customers?

Can you articulate the sexiest result or results that you get from your customer base? No — I am not talking about the fact that 98% pay their bills on time. (Yes, cash flow is indeed incredible. But that is not the sexiest result.) Let me give you a hint. There is not one but

I have been guesting on a few podcasts lately, and one of the topics I cover is developing a winner’s mindset. A few years ago, I developed a simple schematic. It was the most natural way I could explain how I recovered quickly and near perfectly from the effects of two strokes. It works and

Your Teams: Try Some Flipping

This time of year, we are SPAMMED with nasty messages designed to make us feel vulnerable and less than. As in, ‘I know your 2019 was horrible and didn’t live up to your expectations. Change your luck and begin 2020 on the right foot.’ Or my all-time favourite ….. “I have been watching the world

Get Ready to Be BIONIC

If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember the old TV shows – The 6 Million Dollar Man and then The Bionic Woman. A hero and shero — half human and half machine – with one mission. Save humanity from the evil villains. (Google Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner.) In the early 1970s, the world
