About the Delay…

Apologies for the long delay! I’m back … with a few modifications. Namely, I am going to strive for discipline this time around…and actually post once or twice a week.

Here is what you can expect from me…

  • I’ll be commenting on communication & media — noting best practices (and bad endings) in communication, content development, change management and training.
  • I’ll be writing about my own interests in continuous learning, communication (see above) and keeping a work life balance through yoga practice, through traveling around Chicago and through reading – especially magazines (my love of magazines should become fairly clear!).

What are your inspirations?

Sometimes life feels tough, unfriendly. It is on days like these that I especially need inspirations — items that help me persevere and keep trying to accomplish.

Don’t get me wrong, there has been a lot of activity lately. From marketing/communications job applications, freelance writing proposals to volunteering and keeping my Mom & Dad’s new puppy safe. What I really need is for the job application and freelance proposals to pay off. I definitely need some inspiration to keep going.

Here, in no particular order, are the items/ materials that give me strength to pursue marketing/communication/pay-the-bills dreams. (I would love to freelance or work with a small, medium-size growth-oriented PR agency. Above all, I’d like to make an impact and keep learning.)

The Inspiration List

• For time management advice, I like to read Harvard Business Review article “Three Questions that Help Me Live a Fulfilling Life.”
• For a reminder to practice yoga throughout the day, I like to view The Huffington Post video “These Yoga Poses Will Take You Through The Perfect Day.”
• For an escape, I like to read fiction and look for DIY & fashion ideas from the Live Well Network shows Mirror, Mirror and Knock it Off.
• For a sense of the wider world, I like to read blogs like those listed in the “Blogs I Follow” section of this site.
