Welcome to retreat season (and potentially in-person) Let’s admit it, our teams whether new or old need a refresh. We need some time together to regroup, reevaluate, and reassess our goals as a team, company, etc. Maybe you have new team members you’ve added since 2020 who will definitely need to spend in-person time with your team to feel welcomed and understand the company culture a lot more now that they can actually meet their team and not over zoom.
Hello Summer! This Summer looks a lot different than last year, and we are hoppy about it. If there’s one thing we also learned last year is to not take family time for granted. With that, we wanted to offer some family fun for you and the kids this Summer. Our suggestions are not only great, but still adhere to all safety guidelines implemented to individual cities.
June is such an exciting month of the year. Not only do we get to celebrate fathers, but we also get to celebrate Black music month and Pride. There are so many ways this month represents the direction the world is going in, and that direction is towards more diversity.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday and while celebrating in-person may not be an option, there are so man virtual ideas and events happening to help celebrate the special women in your life during a quarantine. Hopefully by this time next year, we’ll be able to suggest in-person Mother’s Day events, but until then, we want to encourage everyone to remain safe. Here are our top 5 recommendations for a great virtual Mother’s Day this year.
Most people aren’t equipped to cut through the awkwardness of a social gathering just to make a new contact or two. Others have no choice. Skipping the gathering is not an option, especially with event tracking devices communicating every break out session attendance or bar visit. We get it. Which is why we have come up with a hot list of ice breaking opening lines to use on just about anyone as conversation joiners or starters.
Living through a pandemic makes the head spin. We’re experiencing high levels of fear for ours, and our loved ones’, health and safety, have a financial anxiety over the economy for ourselves/the community/our company/the world, while also being thrown into a situation where we suddenly have to adapt to completely (for most) new working conditions far away from our office with regular routines and co-workers, to a far less ideal workplace in our home.
Have you ever lost your train of thought mid-ride? Instead of barreling full speed ahead into your brilliant proclamation, something else popped up. Suddenly, your enthusiasm was replaced with the panicked urgency of thinking (often out loud) “crap, crap, crap, what was I literally JUST thinking!?!?”
As a mother, wife and business owner, I often find myself at the end of either of these two spectrums. A.) a very controlled tightly run ship which is basically running on autopilot or B.) surrounded by missing socks, forgotten lunches and a surge of business productivity.
