Driving Your Business: Road Rules for the Mobile Office
by Amanda Guralski - Apr, 2010
Sometimes, a professional life can quite literally be a bumpy ride. My friend Rachel, fresh out of teaching school, often hides out in her car during her lunch break. She needs a quiet place to prepare for her afternoon classes, and has a hard time finding privacy and relaxation at the busy, urban school where she currently teaches. “I loved hanging out in my car, and it became a sort of mini-office for me,” she says. “I’d...
Money Talks. Are You Listening? Your Life Is Your Business.
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2010
Money is work. Given the chance, it will manipulate our decision-making. The question is: Who’s supposed to control the behavior of money? That would be us. When we have too little money to get what we want, we borrow and pay interest. When we have extra money, we invest and hope for gain. Too much borrowing and interest eats up what we earn. Poor investing means loss. There’s a lot of “woe is me” around money. When you...

Even now, months after it happened, it surprises me when I think about it. No phone call. No heads up. No discussion. As I opened the email from a business associate, checking my messages from an airport lounge, I expected a routine update. Instead, I read a message severing our relationship. What startled me wasn't that this person decided it best to change a business situation. These things happen. It was how she informed...
Courageous or Kamikaze?
by Suzanne Bates - Mar, 2010
I have a theory about why people say stupid things in meetings. Having said a few stupid things in my own career, I went searching for an answer that didn’t malign overall intelligence. So my theory is that most of the time when people say something dumb they’re doing it out of courage. They believe whatever they have to say has to be said. Of course it is important to encourage people to speak freely. If the CEO has not...

Easy Ways to Plan for Career Success
by Debra Wheatman - Mar, 2010
When we are young people ask us, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s a common enough question. Our parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends all serve to influence our decisions. Sometimes circumstances force us to choose a particular path. How may times have you heard someone say, “Well I wanted to be a dentist, dancer, actor, or sportscaster,” or something else? But they didn’t become any of those things ownin...
Know When to Fold ’Em - A Smart Career Strategy
by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2010
Have a job that isn’t going anywhere? Reluctant to leave your work mates? Nervous about changing jobs? Join the club! A lot of people stay where they are, taking the avenue of least resistance. Unfortunately, it’s also the road to nowhere. So if you’re on it, get ready to exit. Being in a dead-end job isn’t the worst that can happen. Staying there too long is.

Not long ago, I sat in on a presentation at a business conference and thought I’d landed on Mars. The program topic was compelling but somehow the presenter managed to take us into outer space. No one was following him. I wondered why this is so complicated. The guy had managed to hide his brilliance under a bushel - seizing confusion from the jaws of clarity. Whenever someone says,”I don’t want to dumb it down,” I know...
Five Things I Learned From My Dad About Business and Work
by Louise Fletcher - Mar, 2010
15 years ago today, my dad died. He smoked for years and barely made it to 60 before lung cancer took his life. We miss him terribly. He was one of those people who leave a huge hole when they go. On the day of his funeral, they needed a spillover room in the chapel to fit everyone in. Strangers came up to me, with tears in their eyes, to tell me how much my dad meant to them. And you know the interesting thing? Most of the...
