School Vacations

It is interesting to me that my career involves me working in front of a laptop screen for the majority of my day.  I am not the sort of person that enjoys "screen time".  When I'm home alone, it's not likely that the television is on.  I have no interest in video games and watch few movies, whether it be in the theater or renting a DVD.  For me, the idea of watching a screen just doesn't interest me.

As a mom, I feel that same way about kids and screens.  With this week being winter vacation in my

Memorable People

As I was checking email last night, my almost 13 year old daughter came and sat next to me.  As she skimmed the names in my inbox, she gasped and asked how I knew a certain superstar.  I reviewed my emails and realized she had misread the name in her anticipation of excitement.  No, I wasn't communicating with a superstar, but the person still was someone of interest to me.

Snow, Snow, and More Snow

Living in the Greater Boston area, I know to expect cold temperatures and snow in the winter.  However, with snowstorms occurring on a weekly basis, it has become tedious.  The first snow of the winter elicits smiles and sighs of, "How pretty!"  By now, though, the snowstorms are wearing on most New Englanders.  Kids are out of school at least once a week, cars are covered in snow and salt, the roads are treacherous, both during and after the storms.

What’s New?

With the start of a new year, we often are inclined to make resolutions and open our lives to new ideas, ventures, and experiences. For the past month, many people have worked to incorporate these resolutions into their daily lives.

Running a media company, resolutions and new ideas are part of daily life; there’s no waiting for New Year’s Day to make changes. With constant growth and a desire to perform at our best, something new is happening on a weekly (or daily) basis.

So, what’s new this week?
