Leadership in a new normal.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about leadership. It’s kind of a slippery little concept, isn’t it? It’s hard to define, and the granular details differ for everybody. But when we’ve seen it (or not seen it!) we know. I’m fortunate to work with some fantastic people. Individually they know when

I Love Money

Do you love money too? I recently watched an interview where Marie Forleo interviewed soccer legend, Abby Wambach, about her new book, Wolfpack. Here is the post that links to the video–it is a great interview!  While I really enjoyed learning more about Wambach and what led to her book,

What Lights You Up at Work?

What special things light you up about your business? I mostly dwell in the solo activities of writing and looking stuff up.  (Which I love by the way!) But the other 40% of my job requires me to interview strangers, write about the intimate details of their business, edit their
