26 July 2012

Getting more women up on stage at conferences, especially in tech fields, is important. We can all agree on that. But recently, I read a post that has got me thinking about what really needs to happen to make it happen. Read more…

      Holiday Cards and a Thanksgiving Turkey Can Be Part of Doing Business
      15 December 2011

      I’m old-fashioned. I love writing out tons of holiday cards — by hand, even! I make a giant Thanksgiving dinner and invite everyone I know. It’s part of my particular version of the holiday spirit. Read more…

        Balancing Where You Are and Where You Want to Be
        22 November 2011

        There are days that I want to throw tantrums about my business: full on, lay on the floor and scream like a two year old tantrums. I get frustrated by the fact that I know where my business can go, but it isn’t there yet. It’s not even a question of patience: I know how long it’s going to take to build up certain aspects of my business and I know how much I’ve already accomplished. Read more…

          Putting Your Picture on Your Business: How Does It Change Things?
          12 October 2011

          There’s a lot of advice out on the internet suggesting how you can attract more readers to your business. One piece, in particular, strikes me again and again, as I think about it in terms of my business as a whole. It’s a relatively simple suggestion: you should put a picture of yourself on your website. Read more…

            Are Family Businesses A Guy Thing?
            25 August 2011

            I come from a family of entrepreneurs and, sometimes, I notice things. One of the things that I’ve noticed is that when a family member is thinking about a major expansion or handing things off to the next generation, a bunch of conversations take place — more often than not between male family members. In talking to other entrepreneurs, I’ve gotten the impression that I’m seeing more than my own family’s dynamics at play. Read more…

                Going Beyond Chief Bottle-Washer
                28 June 2011

                What’s in a name? A lot. If, when you introduce yourself and list the name of your position as CEO, you’ll get treated a certain way. If, however, you tell people that you’re the owner, operator and chief bottle-washer, you’ll get a very different response. Read more…
