It's Not Personal, It's Business: Accepting Constructive Criticism

It's Not Personal, It's Business: Accepting Constructive Criticism

Aug 14, 2018

If there was one thing we all hated in school, it was group projects. At the root of this disdain was the fact that we were forced to constantly work through issues with other human beings and couldn’t just solve the assigned project alone. We had to think outside our own bubble. Upon graduation and entering the professional world, you quickly realize that your job is just one continual group project that never ends, and our teachers weren’t wrong to try and prepare us.

The Case Against Meetings (Or Most of Them)

The Case Against Meetings (Or Most of Them)

Jul 31, 2018

Recently it seems work meetings have garnered a bad reputation. It’s difficult to see a meeting request pop up in your inbox without an internal groan or sense of dread. How many meetings in which we’ve sat could the task at hand have been accomplished with an email? As I scrolled through Instagram a few days ago, I read a motivational post from theSkimm that said, “Break up with some of your work meetings…fire yourself from meetings you don’t have to be in. Result: more efficiency and better Mondays.” Sounds great! How do I get started?

A New Perspective on Cold Calling

Jul 24, 2018

Cold Calling…The phrase says it all. It strikes fear into the hearts of some and annoyance into the hearts of others. Many business professionals dread their cold calling time. However, many leaders understand it is a tried-and-true way to grow business.

Working Through Mom Guilt

Jul 17, 2018

A few years ago, I got a call from my daughter's daycare that she had fallen and hurt her lip. "You don't need to come get her. She's fine. We just wanted you to know." Good, I thought. I shall NOT raise little snowflake babies! No sooner had that thought entered my mind than I was in my car pointed right toward my own little swollen-lipped snowflake.

Everyday Advocates

Everyday Advocates

Jul 10, 2018

Many are calling 2018 the “Year of the Women.” More women are running for office than ever before, we’re out in the streets (literally) advocating for causes we believe in, and just generally demanding our voices and opinions be heard. However, for the seemingly-ordinary women, there can be a sharp discourse between what we see on the news and read on social media about the skyrocketing successes of women and what we see in everyday life.

Southerners love our food. We love eating it, reading about it, talking about it, and especially serving it to our friends and family. And when the restaurant business gets in your blood at a young age, turning it into a successful career just makes sense. The Source Advisory Panel member Jennifer Emerson grew up loving her aunt and uncle's restaurant and is now the owner and a driving force behind several of the metro Jackson area's favorite dining spots: Walker's Drive-In, CAET, Parlor Market, Local 463, and Capital Club

Speak Up

Speak Up

Jun 19, 2018

There’s a disturbing statistic stating that during the course of an average business meeting, men do 75% of the talking. As much as we would like to attribute it to women simply being more thoughtful and deliberate and not speaking to just hear themselves talk, we have a suspicion there’s more to the problem. We have probably all been in meetings where we internally contemplate speaking up or proposing an idea. We overanalyze how it’s going to come across, and the opportunity passes us by.
