We’ve all been seeing it.  It’s become arguably one of the most overused phrases of 2020. “Our New Normal” The media has latched onto it.  Remember the age-old political tactic: He who frames the issue, wins the argument.  Reality is being re-framed in front of our very eyes.  “Things [...]

America has been experiencing “the good old days” for three-plus years now.  Companies have been succeeding.  Jobs have been plentiful.  Consumers have felt good about their future and about spending their money.

It’s inspiring to see what America is accomplishing in the face of COVID-19.  One can argue that it’s our most unified, collective action since World War II.  The Federal Government, all 50 State Governments, local governments, American business and the American people are, for the most part, aligned against [...]

We’re all being impacted by the Coronavirus.  Some more than others.  I, like you perhaps, am consuming lots of information on the topic.  I’m watching the briefings…then analyzing the briefing…then watching other people analyze the briefings.

Last week I wrote about the importance of having a strong LinkedIn presence.  It’s the professional’s litmus test for existence.  This week, I promised some do’s and don’ts.  Some of these may seem ridiculous to you – trust me, nothing I’m about to share is made up. Profile pictures: [...]

How about a Blackberry?  Whew. Success in business requires [...]
