The blog has been quiet for a while now, even though it went through a really great makeover earlier this year (you could book your own update here: https://21adsmedia.com/ – Andrew is GREAT to work with!), but I’ve just been focused elsewhere. During all the ups and downs of 2020, and can I just admit […]

Don’t do it tomorrow

Why do it tomorrow when you can do it today? Time management has been my biggest challenge over the last couple of months. I thought after giving up some of my volunteer roles I would have all this free time, but that hasn’t exactly happened. I don’t know how or why, but I’m going to […]

Networking for no reason

The key to successful networking, is networking for no reason. Pshhhh I have no idea what the key to successful networking is for real, but I can tell you if you wait to network til you need something then we are starting off behind the curve. When you wait until you need something to start […]

Clap for the heavyweight champ

The people around you can make or break you. For whatever reason some people will believe that your success takes away from their success. Some people believe there’s not enough for all of us. Some people would rather hold you back than work on their own selves. Some people are motivated by all the wrong […]

My way

Be your most productive self by learning that there is more than one way to do things. I order what I know I like from restaurants, I usually take the same route to places I frequent, I have specific routines, and I don’t want you kids on my lawn. I like things done a certain […]

Flipping off customers

I got behind the wheel with road rage from day 1. Like an embarrassing amount of road rage. From the time I was 16 until I was in my 20s I did not dial it down one single bit. No matter how much my parents or any other responsible adult in my life told me […]

What’s really going on here?

I’ve had this blog for many years now, but every year I write less and less on it. I still write for other people (some under my name and some ghost writing), but I’ve neglected little ol’ hrpockets. I’ve been thinking about ways to reunite with my blog and get back to putting out regular content. […]

Why are you doing that?

Man, some days just stink. You can have a great job and have a crappy day. Maybe you had it out with a co-worker, a boss made you mad, fire after fire popped up for you to put out, and you just head home defeated and with your head down. A bad day doesn’t have […]

Apologizing for all the wrong reasons

I’m sorry. I’m sorry for being in your way. I’m sorry for needing that resource. I’m sorry for asking for more money. I’m sorry for asking for time off. I’m sorry I distracted you. I’m not one to apologize. It hurts my bones to apologize (Did I tell yall I’m an 8? If you know, […]

I can be great all by myself

You can have great ideas all by yourself, but you can’t always be great all by yourself. Everyone needs a mentor. I need a mentor because I’m the blunt friend/co-worker/employee and I’ve found that it’s very hard to find someone to be blunt with you when you’re the blunt friend/co-worker/employee. Its’ fine, it’s just the […]
