One Simple Life Hack to Help You Create Good Habits

/
I don't pretend to have all the answers. But lately I've been implementing a little trick that has helped me. I think it can help you too. My agency is growing. We have amazing clients. We also produce a world class conference. The conference and the clients are synergistic events on paper. In execution they are at odds. One takes from the other in time, energy and sweat equity. I needed to clone myself, or find a solution.

I have lots of experience being out of work. It happened to me three times in a two-year span. Five times total throughout my career. I'm only 40, so that's a pretty impressive streak. Also - I split up a business partnership. I didn't read the fine print of our contract. I battled my partner for almost a year. I made almost no money.

Russell Adler

/
There are many attorneys out there. Russ isn't like any of them. That's mostly why he's my attorney. He's the high hat of the beat. The bass player in the band. The dude that's a little quirky, and always intriguing. I think these differences are why I'm drawn to Russ. They're the reason why he has become more of a "consigliere" to me than hired gun. He's the real deal. Genuine, grounded and a new kind of attorney with a new kind of approach to success that I thought worth sharing. I think you'll agree.

Chris Dessi: You've had a storied career, winning all sorts of accolades. 2012 Most Influential Women in Optical - too many MarComm awards to list. When did you first consider yourself a success? Sheila Haile: That thought does not even cross my mind. I don’t believe you are a success until there is nothing left to do. And there is so much more I want to do…in all phases of my life. I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished the big one yet.

For John Dokes, CMO of AccuWeather it's all three. Talent, smarts and good looks come naturally to John. I hate guys like that. But I just can's find it in me to hate John. But sometimes I can get irked. A few weeks ago my wife and I had just finished listening to the "John Dokes Quintet" at a Jazz club called Kitano, and I was angry. I approached John after his set and berated him.

Powerful Reasons Why Wall Street Got it Wrong with Twitter

/
Two weeks ago I went on CNN to discuss my views on Twitter and Facebook's earnings. I explained that my agency only publishes social content on platforms that work for our clients. Right now the holy trinity is Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. If wall street analysts are watching the car race from home (viewing who is in the lead, and seeing the crowd's reaction) - than we're driving the car with our clients riding shot gun. We feel the bumps on the road, see the potholes ahead and can hear the dings in the engine.
