Why Presentations Matter – Because Kids Need Healthy Teeth!

by Kelly Vandever

I blame my English heritage for my bad teeth though I admit I also think my parents could have done a better job of teaching me to brush (sorry dad — I love you!).  I also think I should have done a better job of teach my own kids to brush (sorry C & Z — mommy loves you!).

If only there were a better way to teach children to brush their teeth — one that takes into account how firmly the child is brushing, one …

For the Introverts Out There! New Book Release – Quiet Influence: The Introvert’s Guide to Making a Difference

More than of few of my clients are self-described introverts.

For my introvert friends, I wanted to let you know about a book released TODAY called Quiet Influence:  The Introvert’s Guide to Making a Difference by my friend Dr. Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, PhD.

Jennifer married an introvert and has been studying them ever since!

What I love about Jennifer’s work is that she doesn’t try to get introverts to behave like their extroverted colleagues (who often get more attention for being outspoken).  Instead, she encourages introverts …

Thank You to Big Fish Games

Yesterday, while pulling up my bank statement online to look at my balance, I noticed a recurring charge to a well known company who used to be huge in the movie rental business but who didn’t keep up with the move to digital.  (I’ll let you guess which company it is.)

I know for a fact that I have never ever had a recurring account with said company, and realized someone had stolen my credit card number.  Crap.

Upon going back through my statement, I noticed 3 …

Raising Bail Money – For a Good Cause (MDA) – My Social Media Experiment

So this nice lady calls me on the phone to say that my name was submitted to be thrown in jail to help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  She said someone told her that I was a nice and giving person… that someone told her that for sure I’d say yes.

How do you say no to that kind of flattery?  Someone must have told her I respond very well to positive reinforcement!

So I said yes… then I decided to try a little experiment.

I’m …
