It’s My Pleasure

By | Food for thought | No Comments

I found this article over the weekend and wanted to share it because I feel it’s a helpful reminder to look at how words really matter. Just as simple as whether your glass is half empty or half full, it’s how you look at it. I am confident that we all want to have the best conversations and outcomes with ourselves and our customers every day. Sometimes, it’s tough.  Whether it’s disagreeing on solutions to problems or working with people who have problems they expect us to solve, how we frame it up and serve it back can have more…

Beneath the Gates

By | Food for thought | No Comments

I decided to dig out the mixed media art mindset I used to have. At times when there were no words, I would make art speak for me. Been a loooooong time as words tend to come easy for me. Yet the hours spent in searching, cutting, gluing and mixing textures and pictures to articulate reality is actually rather relaxing. I recommend everyone explores ways to express their original feelings derived from their own opinions in ways that release you from reality. Only if for a little while. I call this piece, Living Beneath the Gates. For me it displays…

Ain’t My First Rodeo

By | Food for thought, Heather | No Comments

As my generation hits the half way point of life here on earth averages, and start to see a higer percentage of risks adding in to the inevitable, I take comfort in knowing at my age I can use the phrase, This ain’t my first rodeo More and more into relevant conversations about experience. I suppose it’s the little things that make up for the bigger things. Like rodeos. Go find some rodeos and some firsts and enjoy some little things for yourself. Thanks for reading, Heather

Keep on Keeping on

By | Food for thought, Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

Things the mean girl in my head says to me: Why do I spend all this free time on building web posts and podcasts? I’m already sitting for my job as it is and now I sit in the same position even longer to do it. I bet people think you’re crazy for doing it too and are tired of you talking about it. Me, in response to my own worst critic to nicely shut up: Why do I write and say things in a permanent record format? ie podcasts and public website entries of thoughts, ideas and beliefs? Because…

The Silence I Fear Most.

By | Food for thought | No Comments

The silence keeps growing. More and more silence.  We talk to less people.  We share less and less original thoughts.  We fear what may happen to our job, friends, family, marriage, children … if we say what we think. And feel.  We walk on egg shells without crushing any more. Tread silently. Not realizing what all this silence means.  What staying silent will mean. They have taken our voice.  We have let them in a chance of finding a better version of ourselves. We are now Ariel in a new dry world.  How will we find the happy ending? How will…

Here’s Your Shirt and Here’s Our Reality.

By | Food for thought, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

I can’t help but see these photos of the flocks of people- victims to criminals to traffickers and everyone in between from countries unknown – thousands upon thousands at a time. No waiting in line. No registration. No documents. To make this even more hysterical as we defund police and military, while increasing perks to living off the American grid for free, they get a free Biden t-shirt on their way across. Pass on thru. Here’s your free t-shirt. Enjoy the ride. bahahahahhahahahhahahahahah. This is real life. This. Is. Real. Life. I think about the logistics, implementation and system necessary…

I double-dog dare you to disagree

By | Food for thought | No Comments

I started thinking about all the ways the media is trying to make each other hate each other while losing sight of the values that bind us together. It’s down right head scratching maddening. And then I realized I bet everyone – no matter what ‘sides’ you decided to sign up for – I think you’d agree and question how we got here. It wasn’t like this and we all know it. We all just want freedom and the American dream we painted on our definition canvas of #Winning. So there’s the first thing we can agree on. If we…

Pitbull and me.

By | Food for thought | No Comments

Thank you, Pitbull. I can’t believe it took nearly five months to stumble upon this truth he spoke openly last fall. His wisdom on the double standards and how many CEO’s ‘buy low and sell high’ validates my thought of why more influencers like Pitbull need to speak out, regardless of the short-term ramifications NOW. Perhaps he believes it’s time to buy low and bet on more than 75 million of of who will support him for standing tall. We know at least 75 million adults were counted who voted for the Americans First movement versus selling us out overseas….

Don’t Forget to Water the Plants.

By | Food for thought | No Comments

If you use Alexa to do what she recommends you to do- remind you to water your plants and other mundane yet memorable tasks, you scare me. It’s more than convenience at stake. We seriously are becoming more and more away from thinking for ourselves for simple conveniences that we done lost our minds and can’t think. For ourselves. C’mon. We’re closer to Wall-E than we realize. Remember to water your plants on your own. Unless your a senior or impaired like Drew Barrymore on fifty first dates.  Who, by the way, is who my grandson always says reminds him of…

Here’s the download…

By | Food for thought | No Comments

Have you noticed the commercials on your streaming channels say Ad on them with a box to point that out? That’s new for a TV ad. Because it’s streaming. The cables and antennas are gone. It’s modems and routers plugged into the internet. Faster than ever and so everyone can have a device streaming as individuals, not families and gather that data. So is it now internet and therefore I assume no longer regulated by FCC? or are they? In my analytics conversations with media sales, we were very locked down even though we technically were collecting the data, the FCC…
