To whom do I write the thank you card?

Posted by on Nov 25, 2010 in marketing, networking, pif party, strategy | 0 comments

As tough as things have been for most of us these past few years (we’re definitely included in this), I feel that I have so much for which to be grateful this Thanksgiving and now just need to know to whom I write the thank you card? Between finally getting out of dreary and “frosty” Seattle, thanks to Keith (my incredibly creative and talented husband) landing an amazing opportunity at what we’re pretty certain is his dream interactive agency in San Francisco, and a healthy and happy enough circle of family and friends, I thought I had been blessed enough. However,...

Learning to Love LinkedIn Tip #3

Posted by on Apr 28, 2010 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

LinkedIn is a great tool for doing follow up after meeting someone at an event, for coffee or when you’ve exchanged business cards after a long flight back from the east coast. I often send LinkedIn invites as my follow up, and then use it to keep in touch and up-to-date with what is happening with the person I’ve taken some time to get to know.

best left behind in 2009

It’s time to start making a list of the things you’d like to leave behind in 2009. As I shared last year, a few years ago, my hubby and I learned about an incredibly helpful year-end tradition that we’ve embraced. For us, and other folks that aren’t fans of a new years resolution list, making a list of the things you’d like to leave behind in 2009 allows us all to create space for the things we really want to have in our lives in the new year. Be sure you can print it though, and then on New Year’s Eve say a little “goodbye” to your entire list...

Get it in writing

Posted by on Aug 11, 2008 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

An interesting discussion about the importance of getting things in writing took place on the Seattle Tech Startups (STS) list-serve recently.  The discussion pertained to business partners that had failed to get a commission expectation for introductions and assistance in writing.  I’m a big believer in this practice as many folks with whom I have worked have experienced.  Perhaps it’s because I worked side-by-side with a few too many attorneys in my past corporate life, or maybe because I, or people close to me have learned the hard way, but whatever the reason, I cannot...
