What if a machine dictated your menu?

What if you walked up to your fridge and it didn’t open because it knew you wanted ice cream? Instead it recommends that you grab an apple.

Can you be a leader and a manager?

Tomorrow I am attending a session sponsored by PRSSA-NCC on moving from PR Manager to PR Leader. I thought it would be interesting to provide my pre-workshop thoughts…. Management vs. leadership–it’s a distinction we all hear over and over these days. They are not the same, but mus[...]

Revolve Cycle: Barre Ride

When I first moved to the Washington D.C. area I started searching for a cycle studio. The spin classes at my gym were great, but there was something special about walking into the a cycle studio. No one could recommend a good one or even knew of one to try. Luckily, a a little more […][...]
