Networking


The cost of multitasking

In today’s modern society of high-tech gadgets and high-pressure demands from work, we have trained ourselves to be multitasking machines. Many of us consider our ability to multitask to be a skill worthy of listing on our resume. We like to brag to others about our superior ability to do many things at once.

You can always take smaller steps

If you pay closer attention, you’ll find insight and inspiration everywhere you go. As a blogger, I’m always on the look-out for interesting people and ideas. Sometimes my topics come to me simply by driving to a friend’s house for dinner (read my last week’s blog), or while networking with cool people (read my blog on Scope [read more]

Why you should never cut off anyone while driving…

When I speak to groups of job seekers, I often remind them that the interview actually starts way before the scheduled time. If you are driving to a location for the interview, your interview starts the moment you get in the car and begin driving. If you are interviewing via telephone, the interview starts a few [read more]

Get up. Dress up. Show up.

With current workplace trends in casual dress and working remotely, it’s sometimes difficult to pull yourself together in a more professional way. For example, right now, I’m wearing summer shorts, a Stanford University tank top, I’m barefoot, my hair is a mess, and I’m wearing absolutely no makeup. I feel great, and I’m being productive in my [read more]

The dangers of copy and paste preparation

It was a close one. I almost tripped and fell into a presentation pitfall. I knew about this pitfall, having written about it in a blog article in 2011. Yet I walked blindly toward it. What was I thinking? Here’s the back story: I was preparing materials for an upcoming half-day workshop on advanced networking skills for [read more]

The Ultimate Bonus

What a difference five years makes! August 23, 2016 marks the fifth anniversary of my last chemotherapy treatment for ovarian cancer. My oncologist, Dr. Stacy Nerenstone, told me that this was my official anniversary date. It’s also the day of my mother’s birthday. So I have a lot to celebrate. I’ve just completed the ultimate bonus: a five [read more]

The power of personal correspondence

Yesterday I was teaching a networking skills training class to employees of my client BlumShapiro, the largest regional business advisory and CPA firm based in New England. This training is part of their Dare to Lead company-wide talent development program. During the class which was entitled Networking 301: Success by Association, we discussed the importance of follow-up in [read more]

Someone smells like Cheetos

Feedback is a gift. And you never know where, when, or from whom it will come. But you must be ready to receive it, consider it, and, when appropriate, act on it. Out of the Mouth of Babes This past weekend, my husband Byron shared a very funny story about feedback he received while attending [read more]

How to be unforgettable

I had a lovely email exchange this morning with Beth Pite – a person who has had a profound impact on my business and professional career. She paid me a very nice compliment (see quote box) and inspired me to write this blog post. “I had forgotten how we met. In fact, I forgot about the person who introduced us. You, [read more]

Video Tips to help you boost your business and career

I am pleased to share these latest video clips taken from a TV interview that I had with host Jim Pellegrino on March 27, 2015. This was the third time in five years that I’ve been a guest on Jim’s show: The Hour with Jim Pellegrino. He has a way of making his guests feel [read more]
