Auntie Mame — My Heroine
Wrapping Up My Consulting Practice, Starting My Next Career Chapter
[For those of who got an early draft, please do read the final as I've updated it considerably based on your feedback and some late-breaking next chapter developments.]
One of my absolute favorite actresses of all time was Rosalind [...]
Reflecting on what might make a great list of 2013 predictions — beyond those I’ll be discussing next week on my first videocast – I realized that I’d either be repeating a list of hot topics with which you’re already familiar or showing my ignorance (it’s getting worse not better with the explosion of [...]
Trumpie And Me!
I’ve just reread my observations from last year’s conference, and you should too. If I say so myself, it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of what was happening then, much of which is still happening but which is much farther along, at least in some (but by no means all) vendor products [...]
The Message Is Clear!
In the first three posts of this series, here, here and here, I reflected on various aspects of building and sustaining a long and successful career. Now it’s time to sum up the lessons of my own career, a long professional run for which I’m truly grateful.
Tales Of The Mighty Rolodex
It always was and always will be about the power of the network. It really does “take a village,” the mutual support we derive from friends, family and colleagues, not only to raise our children but also to help us every step of the way through life. We owe [...]

I’m a year older than Cher, and we would both “turn back time” if we could. Who wouldn’t? We also share having had a very long career — if nothing else — and mine is still in high gear. But it’s about what it takes to develop and [...]
A Page From Bloom's Camera 1950 Catalog
On Christmas Eve, my Dad’s retail camera shop closed early, and we knew we’d have him with us all that next day. Really just with us, even if he was too tired for much conversation after working the very long hours of the retail Christmas season. [...]
Hurricane Charley 2004
I’m flippin’ tired of all the bad news. My twitterstream has been a surreal mixture this year of enterprise software (#EnSW) developments, HRM happenings and insights (#HRM) and all things related to HR technology (#HRTech) along with the end of civilization as we’ve known it brought to me by the global [...]
