Your on-screen purchases

You are in the store. You've been roaming the aisles for several minutes until you finally find the item that you've been looking for. So, what do you do next? Why, you take out your phone, of course. But the reason why you take out your phone depends on your gender.…

Are you a digital girl?

For the past few birthdays, someone usually asks me if I want a kindle or other device to read books on. I always decline. I explain that I like my physical books and I spend too much time in my workday looking at screens. I understand that those devices are more convenient and can hold an entire library's worth of books, but I just like the feel of paper too much to give up the real deal.…

Why Do Startups Fail?

A multitude of potential pitfalls can negatively impact entrepreneurs as they eagerly try to build their fledgling companies…and basically crush their spirit if allowed. In my experiences, there are four reasons that stand out the most:

  • Lack of Research – Research is imperative. It provides insight about what your competitors are doing so can stay several steps ahead and create innovative ways to develop and market your offering. It also provides you with…

Unplugging on your vacation

A woman in my office took off one Friday, and at about 9:30 am, I received an email from her. She wasn't showing as online, but she was definitely answering emails. I wrote her back, told her she was busted and reminded her that she was supposed to be off.



I get it: Sometimes it is hard to unplug from the…

All tech is not created equal

When I asked my son what he wanted to save up his allowance for, he told me he wanted to buy a tablet. When I asked him why, he listed all the games he could play on it that he couldn't play on his LeapPad.…

Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist - Who Am I???

Here's just one more reason why Robert Downy Jr. stands strong at the top of my "list." <3

Microsoft's social media campaign, The Collective Project, celebrates students using technology to change the world. How better than to give young children use of their limbs back using 3D print technology? That's exactly what Limitless Technology does. The volunteer group started by a University of Central Florida engineering PhD student recently constructed a special "Iron Man" arm for a…

Before you upload that picture...

Let's start with privacy basics: The bathroom door.



After several years of repeated discussions, my son has finally learned to knock on the closed bathroom door. About 60% of the time he also waits for acknowledgement before trying to come in. It is (in my head) a parenting triumph.…

Stash Your Phone And Enjoy The Moment!

Back in December, I wrote a post about product offerings from some super-cool female-run startups. Hubby took note of my list and proceeded to get me some of them for Christmas.

I'm happy to report that one is being crafted as I type.

Meet Ringly, the cocktail ring that will keep you connected with an app. You can keep your phone tucked safely away in your handbag without worry that you'll miss an important meeting, update or…

Congrats On A Great Year! Here's A TESLA!

If you want to increase employee morale, you better dig deep because money doesn't only talk, it SCREAMS.

Let's face it. People perform their daily jobs because of what you pay them in salary. It's why they work 9-5 but it may not light a fire under them to work 5-9. 

Now imagine what they would do if you augmented that salary and rewarded them for their involvement and contribution to the company's successes...say at bonus time??

A startup translated as…

Hacking the idea of traditional homeschooling

The first portion of my education was handled by nuns. Although there were other teachers, the nuns served as school principals and shaped my little mind and didn't teach me enough science.…

Stalking your children with technology

We had a sound/video baby monitor in my son's bedroom for the first two-and-a-half years of his life. Through that little camera, I watched him sleep, kick out of his blankets, sit up in his bed, and even saw the time our cat ended up in his crib and meowed out for help when she realized she was trapped.…

Haters ALWAYS Gonna Hate

Want to know one of my biggest pet peeves?

The chronic complainer who LOVES to point out problems but NEVER volunteers a solution.

Those people irritate the hell out of me.

Guess what? If you want to be successful in business, DON'T be one of those people.

I'm fired up, can't you tell with all the caps?  LOL!

Now, I can certainly appreciate the fact that people may get deterred by a lot of red tape and invisible barriers to change within their corporate…

A curfew for your devices

My son got a new electronic device with all his Christmas loot. It's like a Fitbit for kids, so it tracks his physical activity throughout the day and gives him rewards and games to play. It's a great little device and he is excited about it.…

Watch Me Sparkle...And Grow Facial Hair??

Lucky Hubby. He hopped a flight to Vegas earlier this week and spent three days wandering the strip to visit various hotspots (no pun intended) of the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show.  I, on the other hand, received updates via iPhone as I suffered through the deep freeze that afflicted the Northeast for the better part of the week.

Yes, Hubby uncovered a plethora of electronic treasures during his stay - routers, Audis, Corvettes, Lamborghinis, Iron…

I'm GLOWING For The Bargain Price of $4,000!

If you're lucky enough to find the absolute PERFECT dress, how many of you will wear it until it can probably walk around by itself? Yeah, I know. Me too. =)

But how cool would it be to BUY that fabulous dress and be able to customize the color and pattern through an app, constantly reinventing the look?

Flipping AWESOME concept, right???

Yes, of course your phone is hurting your relationship

On the (sadly) rare occasion that I leave my desk for lunch, I take my phone with me. I know I cannot successfully walk and text, but I will usually type out a brief note to my husband on the escalator ride through my building,…

That's not the school bell ringing - it's your phone

I could tell open this post by telling a story about waiting in line to use a payphone in my high school to call a friend who was supposed to pick me up after sixth period. Or I could reminisce about when pagers became very cool and lots of friends at my high school had them.



But that would make me feel old,…
