Can you guess what it is? If not now, maybe you will after I share my experience a few years back. When I worked as a District Manager, I often traveled with the Regional Manager or the VP of Operations to our various stores. It was natural to greet the store managers and say hello to the associates. However, I noticed my companions wouldn’t say hello to most of the employees in the store. In fact, they hardly noticed any of the employees. The Regional Manager and VP, dressed in suits and holding their briefcases, couldn’t have gone more out of their way to appear distant from the staff, all hard at work, dressed in the required khakis.

This isn’t as easy as you might think. It starts with knowing your priorities. This helps you define your business goals, and should definitely save you some stress.

Inspired WorkSpaces

If you’re looking, you can find beauty almost everywhere. I like my surroundings to feel special, cozy and beautiful. I imagine all creative entrepreneurs encounter creative-blocks from time to time. When this happens to me, I look for what we at Adoublem call Inspired WorkSpaces. I change my environment or make my current workspace more comfortable.

I ended up getting a few new ones, and…

Direct online traffic to you

I have said for years, direct people to your blog, not only to your social media accounts. Today, this is a more common belief, but only a few years ago, many adamantly disagreed. So many people I know ditched the idea of a website, and stuck with only a Facebook page. I’ve had many conversations about this, and there are pros and cons on both sides. However, after all the discussions, I still believe you need a real website. You are creating a brand, your own brand, right? If so, using social media to get noticed and for brand recognition…

Don’t lower your expectations to please other people

How many times have you heard “this is just the way things are done”, with no one having an idea why this is? Or when you make a positive change to a company and other managers say, “They will never do it that way,” referring to employees. I learned more about this years ago when I started a new management job. For the first few weeks, I observed how things were done – what worked and what I thought could be improved. Most employees were excited for positive changes, like streamlining the closing paperwork, so they’d fill out one form…

Life is better with a dog

Full disclosure, I am a BIG dog lover. I love all animals, though I definitely don’t want some of them in bed with me. Dogs are different. They dig their way deep into our hearts, almost as saying “I am permanent here”. When they die, they break our hearts into a million pieces, feeling like we will never recover. They were right, they are permanent,…
