Ms. Career Girl

This past week, I received a text from my husband who was working downstairs. Please bring me another t-shirt ASAP!” Confused, I ran to the closet, pulled out one of his many grey t-shirts and headed down stairs – baffled by his request and assuming that he had spilled coffee.

The HR Capitalist

On my summer reading list is The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s: An Oral History. I originally grabbed the book because it presented an opportunity to connect with my youngest son, who like a lot of kids, has consumed the entire series 3+ times on Netflix. It quickly became a primer on team-based creative process, where ideas have to come in volume, then be culled down quickly to the point that only the best idea makes it, and everyone on the team is OK with that.

Ms. Career Girl

What strange and uncertain times we are living in, but there are some upsides to working from home. Not battling the morning commuter traffic is definitely one of them. What are you doing with all that extra time you have in the mornings?

I’ve done all those things during the last few months.
