    The Work at Home Woman
    Holly - The Work at Home Woman
    4 May 2015 | 10:00 pm
    By Dawn Berryman It’s easy to get overwhelmed with a to-do list, especially if your business or home office is a one-woman-show. Knowing how to prioritize and when and where to spend your energy can make you your most productive self. So, where do you begin? How do you prioritize today’s seemingly never-ending to-do list? […]
  • Listen to Learn, Learn to Lead

    How often do you hear a leader described in the media as a “good listener?” Not often. That may be because, both in theory and by tradition, descriptions of leadership still tend to focus more on the output (decisive! charismatic!) than the input. But, the best leadership in practice today gets noted for its calibration toward the latter. And, social media is an incredible source for that. One business leader currently well representing the listening and learning “input” approach is Deidre Paknad , founder and CEO of Workboard (her third company). I first came across…

    I should start this out by admitting that I am not fantastic about speaking up.  I would rather sit and be miserable than exert myself and fix things so I’m not miserable.  It extends to things like returning items at a store or even ordering pizza over the phone.  It takes a lot for me […]
  • Salt: Friend or Foe?

    28 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    by Leanne ElyToday's Focus is on SALT Salt is an essential nutrient. Our bodies NEED salt. Note that I am not saying we need a LOT of salt, we just need some (about 500 milligrams a day). This is one of the reasons I much prefer sea salt to other salts-it's fresher, lighter and won't bog you don't like regular old table salt. Table salt has chemicals in it to keep it from clumping; such as sodium silicoaluminate, calcium phosphate or magnesium carbonate for example. No one needs chemical additives in their food! Here's Today's TRICK:I like to keep my salt in a dish so I can grab it by the…

    The fantastic but perhaps little understood thing about social capital building through Twitter is that you truly DO develop what feels like a warm, supportive in-real-life style community – with each member looking out for one another. Like any other community (in churches or schools, for example…), it can then be pretty jarring when an active member doesn’t show up as often. That’s why I wanted to share my current work transition. As of April 1, I have taken a full-time social media strategist position with the incredible We Mean Business Coalition communications team. The seven…

    Entrees, salads and desserts to please a crowd. Spring always holds a special place in the year.  The last of the snow, sleet and storms have stopped making way for longer days and the desire to shed heavy winter clothes and meals.  Plates and recipes become lighter and brighter with the hues of colorful vegetables not weighed down by the heavy gravies and sauces of winter dishes. The first vegetables of spring are tender and green with a crisp bite making them perfect for a family gathering, lunch with friends or a change-up to the weekly dinner routine. Spring abounds and so should our…
  • The Day She Lost Her Jealousy at Barneys

    Sheila Nevins
    3 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    Originally published in January 2008… She had always been slightly envious of other girls. It started with doll clothes in third grade. MaryLou’s doll had high-heels and a bikini swimsuit. Hers did not. This competitive nature continued, with more serious manifestations, into high school. At the elegant Pierrepont High, she longed for Ginger’s blue eyes and Margaret Gullen’s knees. The fancy girl’s high school required dark blue knee socks with the dark blue uniform. Margaret’s knees, or so it appeared to her, were dimpled in all the right places — whereas hers appeared to…

  • Leadership and Transparency 2015: The Social Media Imperative

    Andrea Learned
    22 Jan 2015 | 1:51 pm
    By the time “trends” get mentioned in the new year forecast blog posts, they can be little more “old” than “news.” Though forward motion is always worth celebrating, change usually happens more slowly. Take, for example, the call for more transparency in business leadership. While today’s startups are more likely to intentionally bake this into their corporate DNA, 100+ year old companies have a lot more embedded business culture to counter. Still, no matter the corporation’s size or embedded culture, the imperative of transparency really is, to be festive about it, “nipping…
  • Get On Social Media To Become the “Source”

    Andrea Learned
    22 Dec 2014 | 9:56 am
    “All things being equal” is quite an overused phrase, but there can still be gold in what follows it. Whether it’s a consumer’s evaluation of cleaning products or a way to differentiate potential business consultants, the reasons why one option is chosen over another is especially key in a world of choice gone wild. As a business thought leader, don’t you want “[your name here] is the best choice” to be the end of that “all things being equal” sentence? I got to thinking about this recently as it relates to Tweetchat guests, conference speakers, podcast interviewees and NPR…

  • ISIS claims responsibility for Texas shooting but offers no proof

    5 May 2015 | 12:26 pm
    ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack outside a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas -- and warned of more attacks to come. In a broadcast on its official radio channel Tuesday, the group said two Al Khilafa soldiers opened fire outside the event in Garland, a Dallas suburb. Al Khilafa is how ISIS refers to its soldiers. CNN cannot confirm the claim, and ISIS offered no evidence that the gunmen were affiliates with the terror organization. Read More »
  • Our Right To Rest: Islamic Paths to Women’s Empowerment

    The call to prayer came onto the speaker system in the women’s prayer space. The Imam was on the microphone upstairs. “Allahu Akbar.  Hayya As-salat,” called the Imam. “God is the Greatest.  Come and pray.” (Fond memories of the dawn call to prayer in Tunisia rose inside me: “Come and pray.  Prayer is better than sleep.”) Eight women entered the mosque through the side entrance, took off their shoes, salaamed everyone, and gathered on the white lines to pray. Mina didn’t get up. “Please go pray,” I said, worried that some kind of hostessing obligation was at work and…
  • Skin Bleaching: The Dark Side of Beauty

    Esther Oluga
    4 May 2015 | 9:58 am
    Skin and bleaching: two words many would never associate together. Skin bleaching, skin lightening, or skin whitening, is the use of products to remove the melanin from the skin over a period of time. The reasons for this practise have been linked to self-hate and lowself-esteem. According to the World Health Organisation (PDF), in Nigeria 77% of women are reported to use skin lightening products on a regular basis, the highest amount in Africa. Being raised in a Nigerian community, this is a distressing truth and something I have been very aware of from a young age, but I could not…
  • Why We Need To Talk About Student Sexual Assault

    4 May 2015 | 9:48 am
    By Laura Harmon, The Irish Times, Ireland- In Ireland, like in many countries, we haven’t got the best track record when it comes to sex education. There are also many issues to be tackled in our society when it comes to sexual violence. As the nation begins to come to terms with and address the history of child abuse that occurred here, we should also turn our attentions to how adults treat one another. In 2013, the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) published the Say Something Study – the first study of third-level students’ experiences in Ireland on harassment, stalking, violence and…
  • Bali Nine Executions Highlight Australia’s Hypocrisy On The Death Penalty

    By Jennifer Robinson, The Sydney Morning Herald, Australia- Australia is up in arms over Indonesia's execution of the Bali Nine pair Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran. And rightly so: the death penalty is abhorrent and must be abolished. Australia agreed to this long ago: we abolished it in 1973. My thoughts and sympathy are with the families of the two Australians executed on Wednesday. I cannot imagine how I would feel if it had been one of my brothers. Australia is right to raise an objection – and right to exercise diplomatic protection over Australians in trouble abroad. Both Prime…
