Though my latest business trip was a complete blast, the trip back home was the absolute worst! 16 hours after I was supposed to land at my destination, I’m finally pulling up to my driveway to feed my deprived dogs that were only supposed to be home alone for a few, short hours between my […]

I’m just finishing up my first business trip with my most recent company and it’s been an extremely worthwhile experience for several reasons. Not only did I get a better overall view of the company as a whole by visiting their headquarters or home office (HQ), I’ve met some incredible people over the various sites, […]

I am about to begin my third week at my new job with Jet.com and I’m still grasping how they’re able to offer some incredible benefits, most obvious would be the unlimited vacation or paid time off, (PTO). I mean, you’re probably thinking what I am: who does that?! Especially since I already work 4-10’s […]

I just started my first day at my new job with Jet.com and I couldn’t be more excited! This new startup environment has me jumping on my toes because it’s SO new to me: new industry, new company, new role/position. During the first bit of training, I almost felt dumb because I didn’t know any […]

Not to step back into that discussion too much, I wanted to take the concepts of empowering your company as a whole by empowering […]

What is empowered? According to dictionary.com the definition is as follows: I wanted to look into this definition because this word has become a huge buzz word for business, social media, women’s rights, employee engagement, and I’m sure many other societal facets that I’m not in touch with. The feeling I got from hearing this […]

To continue with the TITS concept from my last post, we addressed some broad suggestions on how to keep your employees engaged. I wanted to further define what I would suggest in getting authentic and useful feedback from your employees to improve your business for all stakeholders. Now for customers, who are just as important […]

No, I’m not objectifying women body-parts because its an acronym, but it got your attention, yes? As I’ve given credit to a few very special people in helping me realize how to embrace and implement personal change, I wanted to also discuss how organizations, groups, or companies should be given credit for providing personal change.
