Pink Knock Out

Posted on and Tagged , , , ,

For the most part I don’t talk about my personal life here but today I’m choosing to because of the topic. I am sitting in the waiting room at the hospital my mom’s lifelong best friend (my other mother) was just called back for surgery. Last week she was diagnosed with breast cancer – so today she begins the process. There are 10 of us sitting in the waiting room… Read more

Gen Y Generalized

Posted on and Tagged , ,

I just posted a statement on twitter that I decided I had enough energy about to turn it into a full blown blog post. Let’s back up and tell you where this mini-rant is coming from. I am currently sitting at the New Marketing Summit and I just heard Timothy Young speak about Collective Creativity & Gen Y. When I first read the write up about what Timothy would be… Read more

This is why I’m hot

Posted on and Tagged

No I’m not going to bust out with ridiculous lyrics (though chances are you’re already hearing the song in your head) the title of this post is inspired by the theme of NaBloPoMo for the month of August – Hot. The chances of me blogging everyday for the month of August is about negative 12. But I can still take inspiration from this month’s theme. Recently I have been finding… Read more

Who is Happier?

Posted on

I’ve debated whether or not to have GenPink be geared specifically to women or keep it more neutral with the occasionally pinkness. Since this has been an ongoing debate I’m always interested to find sites that are geared specifically to women (or so they say). This mornings I found SheZoom – A new online community focused on woman-friendly, compelling and real-world information. Essentially SheZoom is a video sharing YouTubeish site… Read more

Is Gen Y really Lost?

I can’t really give much commentary without giving things away other than make sure you watch the whole video before you come to any conclusions

I think I am, I think I am

Posted on and Tagged "I think I can" Why you should be basing your life off nursery rhymes as an adult

The Little Engine That Could taught us that all it takes to accomplish something is to say “I think I can, I think I can”. Are you still living your life off the lessons you learned in nursery rhymes? You should be!  The truth of the matter is, you are what you think you are, you can do what you think you can do. If you start your day thinking you… Read more

Saying “No”: Men vs. Women

Posted on and Tagged ,

I heard something on Oprah that made me STOP, say “hold up” to myself, hit rewind on the DVR and watch it again. “When a man says no in this culture, it’s the end of the discussion. When a woman says no, it’s the beginning of a negotiation.” – Gavin De Becker (author of The Gift of Fear) – as seen on Oprah’s episode Trusting Your Intuition. Are we really… Read more

In an instant moment

Posted on and Tagged ,

In an tiny moment, I am reminded about what is really important in life. I spent most of my day (actually week) stressing about the daunting details of life (work, traffic, laundry, etc.) and in one moment, with one phone call, a cosmic two-by-four just hit me upside the head and said “life is not about laundry”. This awful phone call (that I am still in shock about) was from… Read more

How Much is on Your Plate?

Posted on and Tagged ,

I’ve noticed that sometimes my life seems to resemble a sitcom, in the aspect that a reoccurring theme continues to present itself. You know how on TV shows, each episode tends to have 1 theme, that all of the characters get to deal with in their own particular way? Sometimes in my life, I continue to get the same message from many different unrelated sources. When this happens I always… Read more

Twenty Something Advice: Make your goals measurable

Posted on and Tagged

A goal without a plan is just a wish. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery Most twenty somethings I know would consider their twenties to be a stepping stone in their life on the path to bigger and better things. Gen Yers in particular are known for being big dreamers. For me, having a goal and having a dream produce different results. A goal without a deadline is just a dream. A… Read more
