Three steps to screw up your Twitter presence

Twitter isn't actually that complicated. I think a big misunderstanding that new users have is expecting it to act like Facebook.

You can add pictures but it's hardly worth the time. They don't show up like facebook so it's not like your creative photo taking genius is going to draw in readers. If you say something cute and the picture adds to your statement then [maybe] your followers won't…

Jammed Up!

The traffic was heavy. My workplace was not opening at the regular time. I thought the highway would be clear, but it was packed and slow. I knew there was a situation ahead.  

I saw emergency lights ahead of me. The police zoomed by on the right hand side.…

IT Project Management

I’ve decided that I mostly enjoy project management the most out of all my years in the IT field. Maybe it is about time for me to specialize in that area and pursue PMP certification.

The Value of a Penny



I read an article in our local paper recently about how a group of high school students illustrated the national debt. What they did is used pennies. They wanted to be able to provide a visual picture of our debt because as you and I know, sometimes money (and debt) can be just some numbers…

Why I Sit

Meditation is kind of like pooping. Both require copious amounts of sitting and both relieve the constipation of, well, stuff. You just feel so much more relieved after a good meditation session. And I don't know about you, but when I meditate, I come up with answers. A-ha moments abound just like the a-ha ideas that seem to happen when I'm in the bathroom, particularly while I'm shitting.

Here's the part where I should research some links to show that I know… Continue

"Where's the Herb?"~GREEN Inspirations~May 26, 2011

When cooking with fresh herbs that should be taken out of your recipe before serving or that tend to fall apart during the cooking process, place those herbs in your tea infuser (you know that little mesh ball for loose tea leaves?)...Makes it easy to remove herbs from your recipe.

Things that go bump in the night...

I was fast asleep, minding my own business, and then it happened. I woke up. It was 3:00 a.m. and I had a song in my head. I really do wake up singing from time-to-time.  This song rolled over and over in my head. It cascaded and it would not stop. The verses, the lyrics, the words, they just keep coming.…

Guest on Pursuing Meaningful Work with Brent Green


Last Saturday was beautiful.  It was sunny with temps in the 70’s, way too hot for me, but I’ll take it.  Carrie and I took Fred (our…

Apply online only

I live in Southern California and have gone to 5 job fairs and all mention to apply online. I sometimes think, why bother providing a resume to the business representing the company behind the booth.


So, I don't know if this is a new dynamic, or is it regional according to geography. 


I would like to get some feedback on this, as this is a bit discouraging.

Group Leader
We Believe...In One Another, In This Family, In This HOME

This is it.  My last post of our Family Creed.   The final summary says "We Believe...in one another, this family, this home."  Ahhh, home.   What does that mean to you?  The cliche "home is where the heart is" resonates pretty strongly with me.  I see elaborate houses and tiny apartments, and yet when I go home, it's not to a place, but to the people.  My husband is home to me.  My children are home… Continue

"Love/Hate Garlic"~GREEN Inspirations~May 25, 2011

Most people have a love/hate relationship with garlic...Love it for the way it flavors their food and hate it because of the lingering bad breath...Fresh garlic is best for cooking and knowing how to store a bulb/head of garlic is easy...When purchasing, make sure there are no nicks or dark spots on the cloves (a section of garlic) and that it's firm...Store fresh garlic in a uncovered…

For Those Who Need 100 Thousand Dollars

I have a very different perspective about money than I used to. Coming from a corporate background it was very easy for me to live and think month by month. It’s been a long time coming to pay attention to more of the grander picture behind what I’m trying to accomplish. I’m a visionary by nature, so you can imagine that thinking in terms of monthly income and expenses was a scarcity picture for me, and created some kind of internal imbalance.


I’m honored that I can…

Your kids and your business

Passing your business on to your kids is overrated. Anytime I hear someone tell me about how that's their ultimate goal with their business I smile, but inside it's not a smile but more of a smirk.

Over the last 20 years my dad and I tried everything under the sun to have me take over his company. We never pulled it off. Like any father-son relationship we've had our periods of…

Finding your Voice - "The Power of knowing yourself"

As a wife, a mother, and a busy career woman, it would have been easy for her to fill her schedule with other things.

(The podcast)

But she showed up a little bit early on that Saturday morning, taking her place near the front of the sanctuary, pen and paper at the…

A Bird's Eye View

I know very, very little about horse racing. Saturday, May 21st was the 136th Preakness. All day long the drone of a helicopter was heard high above the vicinity of the race track. The Goodyear blimp was up there tool. The world got a birds' eye view of the track and the infield all day long. The sun was beaming and the sky was clear. …

"A Tight Fit?"~GREEN Inspirations~May 24, 2011

When cooking a roast, make sure your pot/pan/slow cooker is larger than the roast...If the roast is overcrowded, it may give the meat an off color because it's being steamed with no breathing room to give it a nice brown crust.

Please Turn Your Key

There is a worry about dreaming and creating the ideal life by many. I noticed this is in some of the people I’ve worked with before. Dreaming has been conditioned for some as being unproductive, and doesn’t pay the bills. It doesn’t get the daily tasks done, and it has nothing to do with reality.


From my standpoint I have come to understand that dreaming has everything to do with your reality. If you don’t dream, then you can’t create that reality. Your…

Get in the GAME!

On a bright, warm Saturday morning I went for a walk. Now, this was not just a walk. There was a twist of humor and intention in this walk. I had to throw bread to birds. I'm an avid recycler and I hate to waste stuff. Whenever I come across bread or nuts I don't eat I may be inclined to take it to a parking lot and literally throw it to the beautiful white sea gulls that soar above, and roam this lot. They are a fiesty…

My first SCORE counseling appointment



I had my first appointment with a SCORE counselor this morning! It was great. The man who I met built an upholstery business in and now he is Vice President of a local SCORE chapter. I bounced ideas off him and he made some recommendations. Nothing new was said, but there was this psychology and…
