Ask me anything   Submit   Multi-tasking is my forte; sitting still is not. Driven, classy, sassy, compassionate and a complete extrovert.

I geek out to high-tech/social communication concepts all the time.

I attempt to walk in sky-high heels, and prefer coffee to tea any day.

My socks never match.

Digital/PR/Marketing are my occupations...including my love for PDX.

...and here are a few things flowing through my mind.



    Monday: words to live by for the week. “…and it is those who laugh and smile all the time that are most worth being around.”

    Before you study anything about marketing, social media, money, or time management, read this book. You’ll be treated to gems like this:

    Our enemy is not lack of preparation; it’s not the difficulty of the project, or the state of the marketplace, or the emptiness of our bank account. The enemy is resistance. The enemy is our chattering brain, which, if we give it so much as a nanosecond, will start producing excuses, alibis, transparent self-justifications, and a million reasons why he can’t/shouldn’t/won’t do what we know we need to do.

    A professional distances herself from her instrument. The pro stands at one remove from her instrument — meaning her person, her body, her voice, her talent; the physical, mental, emotional, and psychological being she uses in her work. She does not identify with this instrument. It is simply what God gave her, what she has to work with. She assesses it coolly, impersonally, objectively.

    Does Madonna walk around the house in cone bras and come-f*k-me bustiers? She’s too busy planning D-Day. Madonna does not identify with “Madonna.” Madonna employs “Madonna.”

    "When you said you think you’re a genius, I think that upsets people," Kimmel said. "But the truth is a lot of people think they’re geniuses, but nobody says it because it’s weird to say it. But it is most certainly more honest to say, ‘I am a genius.’"
