In the last couple of weeks I have done a webinar, a podcast and a radio show.

That is a whole lot of talking about myself. And I find that in my attempt to sound like I know what I am saying, I throw out a lot of quotes. That’s right people…I have become that annoying quote-giving person. Oy.

The one above is a favorite. And it is possible I said this in ALL THREE interviews. Since I am doing Bloomberg Radio this Friday…I think I might try to work it in there too. I mean I like to be consistent in my annoyance you know.

Google. Me.


Few places have held more allure for me than Google headquarters. I’ve never had much interest in visiting Microsoft or even Facebook- but the Google campus has always intrigued me.

AdTalk: Totally justified.


After 15 years and having made pork chops 900 times, and having him compliment her on dinner every single time…he announced one night he didn’t like HER pork chops. Um, her pork chops are kinda AWESOME. So you know, she did what she had to do.

Those interviews are coming soon… But meanwhile, see how I interviewed (or didn’t) John Lasseter from Pixar. It [...]

Hell has frozen over. Plan accordingly


So I was on the cover of a magazine the other day. Did I forget to mention that? And I was also featured on the inside too. You can read the article here There is this tagline area just under my name that made me giggle. I don’t know if I have ever been described [...]

How to give a keynote and not die. Much.


I highly recommend driving around Chicago in a convertible. And those hanging things? Those are my idea bulbs at the Weber Shandwick Chicago office. Recently I did something I have never done before. Which isn’t all that surprising since I do things I haven’t done before nearly every day. Because my life motto is… “Bite [...]

Mama Kat is Losin it…..and me.


Do I look overly happy and short in this photo? It’s not my fault. I was actually overly happy to be hanging with one of my all-time-best-internet friends (is that even a category anymore?) Kat from the world famous Mama is Losin It. And she is glamorously tall. You may recall, Kat and I had [...]
