First Day

Well today is my first day at a new job…for the first time in a decade I am not doing what I have done on a Monday.  I am a little in limbo…learning the new office environment, trying to figure out what I need to be doing, and where things are around here. I have…

Social Media – Join the Conversation!

Imagine yourself walking into a massive dinner party with more people than you have ever seen, some you know and some you don’t, all enjoying themselves, talking, telling stories and sharing information.  Amazingly you can hear what everyone is saying at the same time.  You hear some people talking about their hobbies, some talk about…

NALS Professional Development Conference

As many of you know I work as the communications manager for NALS…the association for legal professionals.  Last week we hosted our Professional Development & Education Conference in Tulsa.  For most people the conference started on Thursday or Friday and went through Saturday night.  For me it started Monday morning.  I was challenged with facilitating…

My First Think Tank

Well in a little less than two weeks I will host my first meeting with a selected group that will be taking an in-depth look at the association that I work for.  I was able to hand-pick a group of stakeholders that make up each of the many levels of our association.  I tried my…

Blessing & A Curse

So at 4 p.m. today I get a call from a client needing some time-consuming work done and they need it by Monday afternoon.  The downside of doing freelance work.  You never know when you are going to have a project present itself and you have to be willing to get the job done when…

Congrats to the Saints!

Well the Super Bowl was a least a good game.  The Saints were impressive and were able to take home the trophy.  Since I work in the marketing world the ads are always fun for me…this year’s winner to me was Volkswagen for their “Slug Bug” commercial.  Of course I drove a VW for a…

Writing

Well I was basically snowed in all weekend and took the opportunity to write a couple of articles for newsletters that will be distributed by NALS…the association for legal professionals.  The first one I wrote goes along with an educational session I am going to present for the association in March. That is on social…

Today Was Productive!

Not only was I able to get the new blog online…I also updated my website (Letter 10 Productions).  I was able to get these things done while accomplishing most of the things on my to do list today.  It is amazing how much work you can get done when you start at 6:30 a.m. with…

Too Many Hats to Count…good or bad?

I am not sure what made me think of this right now but it might have something to do with the work I get to start doing tomorrow. When I graduated from Northeastern State University with a degree in Mass Communications I was expecting to work as a public relations specialist somewhere writing press releases…
