A Change of Seasons. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / August 2, 2019 /

A Change of Seasons. . . It’s really not a change of season as much as a change of mood and focus. I speak of having taken the month of July off from blogging. It would be great to report that the time off was consumed by a vacation at the beach, long sauntering walks…

Women and Words! Treasure From the Archives

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 5, 2019 /

Treasure from the AWI Past Four years ago I wrote a post about “words” and focused on 2 that women seem to rarely use. Not sure why we rarely use them; but nonetheless we do. Perhaps it’s because we’re women and the words have a male sound to them.  I don’t want to get too far ahead…

“Talk to Me!”

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 22, 2019 /

Talk to Me Please! Those of us who blog on a regular basis do so because we have something we want to say; but we also do it because we want to prompt a dialogue with others. In other words, a blog is an invitation to talk. To tell me your thoughts after reading mine.…

Thoughts of Success & Failure ~ From the AWI Archives!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 15, 2019 /

Sometimes We Must. . .  Sometimes we must adjust our days and weeks to accommodate life events we hadn’t planned for. Such is the case for me the past several weeks. Friend’s sudden illness, hospitalization and subsequent stay in skilled care threw my usual schedule into disarray. It also intruded on writing fresh content for…

Our Most Valuable Sales Tool!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 8, 2019 /

I Gotta Be Me!  Do you recall the song made famous by Sammy Davis Jr., I Gotta Be Me?  “I can’t be right for somebody else if I’m not right for me” is the line that strikes my fancy as I think about what sells. Because what sells is less about the product or service and more…

Why I Don’t Do What I’m Meant To Do!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 1, 2019 /

Setting the Stage. . . It occurred to me this past week that I have been deliberately avoiding what I’m meant to do. Not all of it mind you, but the most important part. And the part to which income and future financial security are linked. It’s not that I didn’t suspect I was walking…

Time For A Deep Dive

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / January 18, 2019 /

Anytime’s Good, But A New Year is Best! A few months ago, a friend thanked me for encouraging her to take a “deeper dive” into understanding her personal-professional motives on an important matter. I’ve been thinking about her comment since she noted it on an FB post and the blog post that prompted her comment.…

Women, Work & Socialization!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / January 4, 2019 /

Don’t Go It Alone! Last Friday, I wrote about winding up the old and getting ready for the new. My parting paragraphs went as follows: “Know Before You Go and Take Someone With You. . . And finally, take someone with you. I’m fortunate to have Jen Sakowski as my AWI partner. While I’m the big…

Are You Really Serious About Your Business!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 14, 2018 /

The Busiest Season of the Year! It’s the busiest season of the year. Even without children at home, presents to wrap (just checks in envelopes these days), or major baking chores; I don’t seem to have the time to right a fresh blog each Friday.  So I’ve dug into the AWI archives to again find…

Jesus and a Cell Phone!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 30, 2018 /

Funny How Things Happen. . . Funny how one thought leads to another and to another and so on and so forth! That’s what happened to me the morning I sat to write this week’s blog. Here’s how the story begins. . . I have a dear friend of many years who is a very…
