Live on Branding Without the BS

My good friend Megan Vaughn has a Facebook group called Branding Without the BS. She’s a total branding guru (sorry if you hate that word, but it’s true!)

WCORL 2019

“Ethics on the Web Panel” I was so honored to be asked to participate on this panel. I’m a fan of sitting around, talking about big ideas and “what-ifs”. So to be a part of a panel that discussed what our ethical responsibility is to the web as a whole was a lot of fun. […]

Zen and the Art of Mental Maintenance

I have a terrible memory. I often can only remember the bare bones of something, without the details that surround it. Case in point – I remember an analogy (to anger or addiction or depression… I can’t remember now). But basically it said that this “x” factor will always be next to you, you just […]

I was on the Twelve Minute Talks Podcast!

I met Lorena Tomasini at WordCamp Miami and she invited me to be interviewed on her podcast! I loved the concept – finding solutions and important information in a short time period. Lorena Tomasini, owner of MALM Life and Health Insurance Agency, interviews other business owners, entrepreneurs and experts about what they do. We discussed […]
