The Art of "Thank You"

The Art of "Thank You"

Sep 12, 2017

If there is one thing our Southern mamas taught us, it’s the importance of manners. More than likely, somewhere between “yes ma’am,” “no ma’am,” “please,” and “thank you,” the art of the thank you note was also drilled into our brains.

Avoiding a Manic Monday

Avoiding a Manic Monday

Aug 22, 2017

It happens to all of us—we’re making our Monday morning commute, mentally reviewing our to-do list for the day, and we feel completely overwhelmed. There’s no way we can accomplish all these tasks in one day. This is the feeling that gives Monday its unpleasant stigma. Mondays make up 1/7th of our lives, and there’s no sense in feeling unhappy and overwhelmed with the start of a new week.

Working From Home: Not So Easy

Working From Home: Not So Easy

Aug 15, 2017

Run Your Meetings. Don’t Let Them Run You.

Aug 01, 2017

We all have those particular meetings we dread. The calendar request promises it’s only going to take thirty minutes of your time, but you know better. Some of these meetings have the potential to be avoided with an email or phone call, but that would be too easy. Instead, you’re stuck in a conference room problem solving for an entire afternoon. Running a quick, effective meeting is easier said than done, but it is possible.

Though it may not feel like it outside, summer will soon be coming to an end. With this shift comes an uptick in our to-do lists. Inevitably community clubs, boards of directors, church groups, and school committees will start planning their fall schedules and reaching out to go-getters like you asking for help.
