The Source Advisory Panel: Jennifer Emerson

The Source Advisory Panel: Jennifer Emerson

Jun 27, 2018

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.

Your Official Vacation Checklist Before Leaving the Office

Your Official Vacation Checklist Before Leaving the Office

May 29, 2018

As you sit behind your desk and work on your next project, make your early morning hospital rounds, or finish up your latest legal brief, you probably have your summer vacation plans somewhere in the recesses (or maybe even the forefront) of your mind. When things get tough at the office, we tell ourselves if we can just get through the next few weeks, we’ll be sitting on a beach somewhere enjoying the sunshine and not thinking about work.

The Source: In their Own Words

The Source: In their Own Words

May 22, 2018

You may have noticed The Source has been busier than usual over the past two weeks working hard to promote our network for women. Our program has grown and evolved over the first few months of 2018.

We don’t want anyone to miss out on the excitement to come throughout the rest of the year.

We all have something to say. We want people to hear about our brand, to know our unique spin on a product, and recognize the value we add to the world. Yet, we all face the same problem: rising above the noise. And it’s insanely noisy out there.

The Source Advisory Panel: Elizabeth Upchurch

May 08, 2018

Maybe it’s because we’re Southern women. Maybe it’s because we’ve seen the impression a proper thank-you can leave. Whatever the reason, we’re huge proponents of a hand-written letter, a swanky invitation, or even some colorful, fun sticky notes to keep our offices organized. All of these things and more are curated by the creative, business-savvy Elizabeth Upchurch at her store, Fresh Ink. This impressive entrepreneur also happens to be a member of The Source Advisory Panel where she lends her time and knowledge to helping us connect and empower professional women.

Gratitude in the Face of Chaos

Gratitude in the Face of Chaos

May 01, 2018

In the midst of this crazy, hectic professional world, experts are always telling us how to better balance our lives, how to be more mindful and present, and how to be happier. They tell us to do less, do more, take time to engage, work on organization. The list of suggestions leaves us with whiplash. Everyone seems to have a solution to the anxiety that often permeates our day-to-day activities. One solution that doesn’t seem to be discussed much: focus on being grateful.

Pitch Perfect (No, Not the Movie)

Pitch Perfect (No, Not the Movie)

Apr 24, 2018

I was in a meeting recently, about 25 people, and everyone got to do their favorite thing (insert sarcasm here) – stand up, wave to the group (which wasn’t required), state your name, title, organization, and a little about your job responsibilities. After the exciting 15-minute introductions, I asked the group if anyone could recall more than two people’s titles. Several attempts later, with very little accuracy, it was clear the connection was lost early in the game.
