How to Run an Effective, Efficient Meeting Without Wasting Everyone’s Time

Also published at my Huffington Post blog. I forget how much I hate meetings until I have to go to one, like I did yesterday. And let me tell you, I have some serious meeting-related peeves. I’ll bet I’m not alone. This is not to say I’m totally opposed to meetings. I know they have […]

What to do when you’re discouraged: a return to courage

Also published at my Huffington Post blog. Revision of a previous post on this blog. I was going to start this post by saying, “I’m a writer, and in a career like this, it’s easy to get discouraged sometimes…” But the fact is, being discouraged isn’t just a side effect of writing. It’s a part […]

At the Heart of It: Colleen Raney on Music and Connection

Also published at my Huffington Post blog Ask almost any artist, and he or she will tell you the expression of art is about far more than the art form itself. Painting goes beyond canvas and oils. Dancing is not just about choreography. Acting is more than memorizing and repeating lines. And for Colleen Raney, […]
