I Too Am Lost! A Woman's Tuesday Topic

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 6, 2016 /

I admit it. I am lost. In fact, I’ve been “lost” for a number of months. When I should have been focused on marketing our awesome online community for women in business worldwide at Affiliated Women International (AWI); my head was in another cloud on the other side of the business planet!  Life has a…

"Attend To That Which Is Important!" ~ A Thursday Thought

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 17, 2016 /

It occurs to me that some things never change. Some actions and words of ours cannot be improved upon.  Life has rules. Some folks don’t want to admit same; nor do they want to honor them. But truth always wins out in the end.  That’s the truth I found when searching our AWI archives for…

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 15, 2016 /

Today’s post is another from our AWI archives and relates to personal character issues which I call “integrity”.

"More On BOLD!" ~ A Woman's Thursday Thoughts!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 10, 2016 /

Yesterday I briefly talked about being “bold”. I suggested that true boldness – the kind that doesn’t back down whether or no – may come once in a lifetime for many of us. When I shared the post with our Facebook group (The Neighborhood), a member and friend asked the following question:  “Why only once?” Interesting…

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 10, 2016 /

Over the past 8+ years, I’ve written many blog posts. Usually they fade from view in a few months and land in what I call the “AWI Archives”. . . forgotten until something jogs my memory.  A few weeks ago I inputted a new blog title, “What Are We Worth?” Lo and behold it’s not a…

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…

"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…

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.

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 3, 2015 /
