The Trump Effect! Women, Business & Life

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 22, 2016 /

Disclaimer:This is not a political post. It is the thoughts of one woman in business after observing the almost miraculous candidacy of a man who has never been in the professional political arena before. But a person who has an exceedingly heighened sense about business, brand, marketing and a target audience that each of us…

To Err is Human ~ Women and Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 5, 2016 /

You’ve heard it many times – “to err is human, to forgive is divine!”   Here’s my variation of that famous saying. . . “to err is human; to own it and apologize is divine!” And while forgiving an error is indeed divine; so is the ability to own it, say I’m sorry if that’s appropriate…

"I Hate Sales!" ~ Women in Micro-business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 23, 2016 /

Yep, it’s the truth. I hate sales. The thought of being a “salesperson” has always rattled my cage. I recall a conversation when I was social service director at our local hospital about sales and I haughtily mentioned how fortunate I felt not being in “sales”. Imagine the shock when my companions informed me that…

"Bah Humbug!" Tuesday Dose to Encourage & Inspire

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 22, 2015 /

Phrase sound familiar? Something uttered by old Scrooge in Dickens “A Christmas Carol“; it’s indicative of the attitude of those who find the Christmas holidays anything but the joyful celebration they are designed to be.  However, that’s not the reason I titled today’s “Tuesday Dose” in this manner. I did so because about this moment…

"Love Me or Leave Me!" ~ Tuesday Dose to Encourage & Inspire

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 15, 2015 /

Sunday’s “Women’s Sunday Series” post was on how I can only love some folks at a distance. When I permit them up close; a lifetime of negative behavior makes it difficult to practice forgiveness and love them as we’ve been called to do (as ourselves).  Then this a.m. when searching for today’s MANTRA for our…

"Cut the Drama!" ~ Women & Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 11, 2015 /

Every business person – male or female, is focusing on goal-setting about this time of year. I am doing the same thing. However, I’m looking at business development relative to a new year (any new year for that matter) from a slightly different angle. The “emotional” angle.  You might say that the “emotional angle” is relative…

"Are We Tripping Over Pride?" ~ Women in Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 10, 2015 /

You know what they say – “pride goes before a fall”! And in my lengthy experience on earth; that statement is more true than not. There are many who would disagree, stating that we all need to have a level of “pride” in our skills, abilities, accomplishments, etc. To a point, that’s truth. But when…

"What's Your Bottom Line?" ~ AWI & Women in Micro-Business!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 8, 2015 /

What does the phrase “bottom line” conjure up in your mind? If you’re like me and most of the rest of the folks in my world, it brings about financial ideas. With the words of a popular television commercial these days. . . “what’s in your wallet?” Or on your profit-loss statement under “PROFIT”!  Whatever…

"Darn-It's Taking Too Long!" AWI for Women in Micro-Business

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 4, 2015 /

The best things in life take time. Gestation of a human infant takes 9 months – 39 weeks to be exact. The more perfection built into what is being birthed; the longer the period of time to birth. Nothing worth having in our lives comes without sacrifice at some level; a bit of discomfort-even pain…

"Waiting for Godot!" ~ A Tuesday Dose to Inspire & Encourage!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 1, 2015 /

“Waiting for Godot” is a famous two-act play by Samuel Beckett. It’s considered in various forms because it raises so many questions from practical, realistic and/or metaphysical perspectives; much of which can be found in Wikipedia’s information on the play, the characters and the author!  If you are familiar with the play, then you might wonder how…
