New technologies and some tried-and-true service

So today I’m writing about work — well I’m writing about my perspective on the stuff I write about for work. I’ve been infused, invigorated and inspired with some much-needed creative bursts — likely triggered by my company’s expected launch of a new mobile-banking portal. I’ve actually enjoyed thinking about what this site could be and how I can work to fulfill some personal goals or missions through the site’s story angles and coverage. In my last post, I mentioned Uganda and underserved women there whom a friend was trying to help. (And when I write ‘underserved,’ I mean underserved …

Death, evaporation … and same ole sayings

So, December and January did not treat me so well. I finally understand what pure exhaustion is! After traveling for the better part of six months (save for the month of December, when I was consumed with Holiday goings-on), I finally hit a wall. I’m off the road until June, so I’m starting to chill, think, write … without the underlying weight of worrying about all the prep I need to do for the next trade show or work event. I still have work on the mind, but at least I have time for other things, like blogging. In my …

Back to work … with updates and minor annoyances!

So … I’ve returned from my 8-day trip to San Diego, where I delivered two presentations about financial services U.S. credit unions should be taking advantage of. If you’re interested, you can read all about the conference I attended on my job site, which I will just assume you know. Now I’m prepping for a crazy month of biz travel, which I am sure will fill me with all kinds of good blog posts! The SD trip was great, since I did have two-and-a-quarter days for some R&R with some great friends from childhood. I alluded during a recent SD-trip …

Just when I thought everything was set …

This learning to go with the flow stuff actually works, I’m quickly finding out. Yes, unexpected events and trials have a way of creeping in. Although I sometimes wonder if on my quest for adventure I don’t subconsciously create chaos … just to add a little excitement to my day. Here’s a brief update: After a week and a half in Africa, I returned the States a bit worn from the road but with a rejuvenated spirit. Frantically, I prepped for my trip to Toronto, which would carry me across another border in just more than a week. The time …
