Well my sweetie (Michelle) and our 2 soon to be Juniors (Mariah and Eli) set out this past weekend to 'check out' Appalachian State in Boone NC.
Don't know what's next on the 'opportunities tour' but I can say a couple things from my experience with helping their older brother and sister start to make their way in the world.
First thing... Each will go in their own way

This weekend, I worked on a project I had left off of my schedule for some time. Since it was a personal endeavor, I ended up sliding it at the bottom of the to do list day after day. There were more important projects to work on, ones that would build clientele and pay the bills. Yet this writing project had always been there- nagging at me.
After more than a year of saying to myself and my husband, Barton- we really do need to work on this project, I began researching what needed… Read More

A couple of weeks ago, I received my first speeding ticket- ever, since I began driving. The worst part was I wasn't on the highway, which I admit I usually drive faster than I should. I was around the corner from our house.
I had been one of those mornings; we've all had them. I was late for a meeting. As I was walking out the door, the plumber drove up. He blocked my car in the driveway and then told me he was allergic to dogs, so I ran in to put our back lab on a leash, which I… Read More

Recently, a friend forwarded me the speech J.K. Rowling gave to Harvard graduates entitled The Fringe Benefits of Failing and the Importance of Imagination
Why is it so hard to think there are benefits to failing? As a child, I was conditioned to think I was supposed to be perfect, and the inability to live up to those standards created a vicious cycle of insecurity and doubt, which only recently I have been able to look at… Read More

When my husband I moved to Raleigh in 2005, I made the transition from a corporate position in trade show advertising to contract and freelance writing. Over the last few years I have looked at how to manage my creative lifestyle. The creative part of my brain throws the rules out the window, moves spontaneously and flows from one idea to another. On the other hand, the work must get done, the bills must be paid, and there needs to be some order of business and household… Read More

A surveillance camera captured the bear's shopping trip, and I have to admit, aside from smashing the sliding glass door, it looks exactly like our
last shopping trip to Circuit City. Hello? Does anyone work here?
"Colorado Springs police say that the vandal who broke into a closed Circuit City wasn't trying to steal electronics — it was a confused black bear.
Apparently, the bear panicked after setting off an alarm at a nearby restaurant. He smashed through the… Read More

When you have a talk with someone at a networking event, that conversation lasts only as long as you're speaking and in the memory of the people who were listening. Conversations on the web that may passionately express a strong opinion in the moment may live for years, long after the opinion has faded away.
Right now you are probably on the web… Read More

From a post
at Drew McClellan's Marketing Minute Blog.
Let's be honest. Most print ads in newspapers and magazines stink. We flip through the publications without a glance at the ads or their offers.
How can you avoid being nothing more than a blur?
Make sure your headline has stopping power
If your headline is a snooze, your ad will go unread. It's that simple.… Read More
