    I’m currently totally obsessed with the 5 day wardrobe that Luxirare created recently, TOO. Oh my gosh. I got drool all over my keyboard.

Personality Features

Never before has there been so much free advice at our fingertips for self-help in managing depression and anxiety, but so many years of trying to overcome the dumps by reading articles about gratitude and quotes about happiness and writing lists about small successes makes me more feel like I'm trying to dig myself out of quicksand. Thinking and meaning-making about my mood does nothing to improve my happiness. There's no logical solution to this because it's an unreasonable problem.

90-Minute Keynote

Posing a few questions to fellow speakers, fellow audience members (current and former), and fellow easily distracted people. Next month I'm presenting a 90-minute keynote address at a conference (subject: new-media marketing/youth markets) and I am terrified.

Le Big Sale: 50% all shoes!

All of our fall deliveries are starting to come in and the boxes of inventory are piling up in a labyrinthian maze around the common areas of the office. We're hauling the shipments in, unpacking them, and checking quality as fast as they're arriving.

We did all of the sights in six days and I learned what a fabulous travel companion my daughter is--her enthusiasm never decreased from sun up to sun down. The TSA! The airplane! The trains! The buses! The river through the city! The room key! The tiny soaps! The king-sized bed and cable TV! All so glamorous. And that's to say nothing yet of the amazing experiences we had at the planetarium, art museum, aquarium, science museum, department store...

Hello Fearless: My friend Sara’s new company for female entrepreneurs, and an interview with me!

Several years ago (probably around the time of the first Big Omaha conference) I met Sara Davidson through the Silicon Prairie startup community, and as two creative (and outspoken) women in the community we became fast friends. I remember one time in particular when I was going through my divorce, I was at a party…
