This February brings one of my favorite things, the Olympics. Winter Olympics, Summer Olympics - it doesn't matter. I love them all. Every two years when the Olympic Games begin, my family has a party. We eat bagels, donuts, pineapple rings, anything we can think of in a ring shape... Continue reading

Welcome to the year 2014! According to the Chinese calendar, this is the year of the Horse. And since this year already seems to be galloping past, in my mind, it is an appropriate name. Much of my time in January is spent following the adage, "Out with the old... Continue reading

“Crew Time!”- Those were the first set of words I heard coming through the intercom my first day on the job at Pay Plus Benefits, nearly two years ago. I remember being extremely curious as to what type of roll-call entitled such an early announcement. It was after 9 O’clock... Continue reading

If you have not read Stephen Covey’s book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, or maybe have not read it in a while, I highly encourage you to pick it up or dust it off. I love that the advice is still relevant and right on target! I thought... Continue reading

They’re square, blocky, and look somewhat like a barcode. They’re on business cards, brochures, t-shirts, buildings, and even headstones. They are QR codes and they’re starting to be seen everywhere! In fact, a week before Easter I received a flyer in the mail for a local church and lo and... Continue reading

Me too! I can watch that clip over and over again and still laugh.
Recently a friend and co-worker posted an article on Facebook about “work ethic”. It was an interesting, albeit, controversial article and it elicited many comments, mine included. So what is the deal with work ethic and just why does it twist the knickers of so many people? Apparently if you... Continue reading

Thanks Lisa! My name is Amber Gideon by the way.
At any given time, pre-2011, you could open my purse and receipts would shoot out all over the floor like that old snake in a can gag. I’m saving them for tax purposes and to be reimbursed for business lunches and the occasional business supply expense, and 90% of the... Continue reading

Jason, you are absolutely right. In hindsight I should have gone into more detail or perhaps used a better illustration to explain that sometimes projects need more defined start and end periods. Using percentages wasn't the best way to describe that. I know that for me, work projects are always evolving. If I don't say, “Okay, once A,B and C are completed, it's time to roll this out. X,Y and Z will be in version 2.0.” then I will never complete the project because I always see plenty of room for more improvement.
You're welcome! It's a tool that I use daily.
