If you’re an avid watcher of YouTube, like myself, you probably noticed yet another YouTube “scandal” a couple of weeks ago. A classic tale of he said, she said. For one YouTuber in the beauty community, this resulted in a few million subscribers lost, unfollows from close friends, a few nasty tweets, and an overall rough week.
As I understand it, put simply, the world and its people used to be governed by religion and thereby compelled to “do good.” Business was kind of a bad seed – it was Capitalism. A dog-eat-dog mindset was encouraged.
I recently read an article by Carol Roth about the 76 Challenges That Women Have to Overcome in Entrepreneurship. Seventy-six different professionals weighed in on the question and about 90 percent of the answers were the same: Women, and everyone else in the world, don’t have enough confidence in women.
If you’ve ever had a dream (most of us), you know they can
be fun, interesting and wildly bizarre. For instance, my last dream had the lush setting of the Ritz Carlton where I was stuck in a glass elevator with Michael Keaton and Ryan Reynolds, all of us wearing bright green St. Patrick’s Day outfits and holding French bulldogs. Before you can judge me, I’m sure you’ve had weirder dreams than that.
Creative marketing communications firm Bozell received 12 industry awards at the 2019 American Marketing Association (AMA) Omaha Pinnacle Awards on Wednesday. Twelve represents a tie for most awarded agency or company. A complete list of awards won are as follows:
Last night was the culmination of the 2018 – 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball season with the University of Virginia defeating Texas Tech University in an instant-classic championship game of what we all effectively call March Madness. Of course, advertisers typically work to leverage March Madness for their special offers, deals and promotions. The king of this year’s tournament, in my opinion, is Buffalo Wild Wings.
I recently read an article about what some women in marketing wish they’d heard earlier in their career and it boils down to giving yourself permission to work and behave as yourself – without needing permission from someone else.
When I think about working life today that seems ridiculous.
The strong, take-no-prisoners business women I meet every day would never fret

who are rising and have risen to the top are fearless and hard charging. Weren’t
Flipping through social media, I always laugh when I come across an article talking about what Gen Z wants in the workplace because typically it’s written by someone from the Baby Boomer generation. It’s pretty tough to accurately write about a generation that you don’t come from – like a hermit writing about the importance of social events or a mime giving a presentation on public speaking.
This is a blog post, not a blog. Blogs are a collection of
blog posts, which can be any length. Even three sentences.
The long answer:
There seem to be a big misconception regarding blogs, one which I try and correct at every given chance. A blog is an online diary or publication. While writing this piece, I know that it will be posted to Bozell’s blog. This piece, however, isn’t a blog, even when posted online. This will be an article, or a blog post. A blog is a collection of blog posts. Asking people to read your blog is fine, but if you’re referring to one article on your blog, just ask people to read your post. I know it reads like a rant (and it is a little bit), but using the right vocabulary helps present ourselves professionally.
