When life gives you bananas…

When life gives me lemons, I tend to just eat the lemons, suck it up, and move on, looking toward sweeter fruits of my efforts. But when life gets a little bananas? I wear them on my sleeve.

I work in beautiful downtown Benson, right above my favorite bar and one of the best restaurants in Omaha–Krug Park (order the gin fizz) and Lot 2 (I get flatbread and fries). It’s a little bit of a windy day for a heat-set hairdo, but as Sarah reminded me, it always cheers me up to take ten minutes and relax in some rollers. There’s a little comfort in getting dressed every day, no matter what I’m wearing. Presenting something to the world. And maybe projecting the positivity that I wish to manifest in my life.

OOTD: Windy, Rainy, Snowy, Sunny.

I'm doing a panel talk tonight (my fourth of the week), then Friday morning I'm leaving at 6am for Ikea in Kansas City, then driving on to Bentonville Arkansas for an event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, then back up north to Chicago for a Bears game on Sunday, then back west through Iowa to Omaha to arrive Monday night and get to work again. Then it's gearing up for Thanksgiving week, which will be the most important week of my online (and beyond...) retail career.

Leaving a Mark: A new mural project in Benson

Omaha artist Watie White is currently creating a series of murals in partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska where he interviews and creates a linocut portrait of several new immigrants to Omaha. With support of other organizations including the Intercultural Senior Center, Omaha Public Schools, the South Sudan Community Association, and the Anti-Defamation League, he's creating these small-scale carved portraits and then turning the art into giant murals all over town. This is one of two murals Watie is doing currently in the neighborhood of Benson in Omaha--you can see it on the side of the Benson Law Center. The themes in the text are inspiring--the desire for education, the bravery of leaving home in hopes of a better life, and a compulsion to give back to the communities that have welcomed them.

OOTD: Wooly and warm on Election Day. Go vote!

Go vote today! Every midterm election matters. Our local officials are the ones who are both most accessible to us, and who have the most impact on our daily lives. Partisan interest groups thrive on indifference, and sitting out of the vote serves only to continue the status quo of gridlock and fear-based campaigning. Locals, show the big money coming into Nebraska's races that we're smarter than that.

OOTD: Pleats and Posies

This dress gets filed into my personal "business drag" collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person's board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.
