Love or Hate Infographics, They Work! Here’s Why.

Infographics hold a very unique place in communication strategies. By now, just about every industry has produced an infographic of some sort. A quick Google search will confirm that. I came across an article written in 2011 that said infographics are a dying trend. Now in 2018, I would say they are as strong as … Continue reading Love or Hate Infographics, They Work! Here’s Why.

3 Qualities of a Great Photograph

Photography, just like any other form of art, is subjective.

So how can you select an image to represent your business or … Continue reading 3 Qualities of a Great Photograph

Why the Best Photographers Use Manual Settings

Anyone can purchase a DSLR camera and photograph a basic picture using the auto button (or “the little green box” as some photographers call it).

A Non-Traditional Administrative Professional’s Day

This is the first Administrative Professionals Day that I haven't worked in a traditional office to enjoy the flowers, cards and generous spread of cookies and cakes that seem to always accompany this holiday.

I just took my first real vacation for the first time in two years. I’m used to working, or at least having some obligation, every day of the week—even including evenings and weekends.  It wasn’t healthy. Because of this ridiculous schedule, I would plan out everything the night before, from what clothes I would wear … Continue reading When You Don’t Plan Everything, Everything Goes As Planned

Acting Your Age

I think it was the picture my best friend posted to my Facebook wall a few days ago that got me thinking about this topic. She had just turned 2 and I was 2 1/2 and we were leaning over her  birthday caked shaped to look like a pink cow, blowing out her birthday candles. We grew … Continue reading Acting Your Age
