Keys to Boosting Sales

January 16th, 2013 // 9:40 pm @ eileenwebb

I hate it when I have to relearn what I already know.    Sales drives everything in a small business.  So during my 15 minute, peer group review of progress and plans during the Entrepreneurs’ Assembly meeting a few days ago, the facilitator asked me how I got customers.  I answered that mine come from referrals and speaking engagements but that one [...]

Coping with Challenges

January 16th, 2013 // 12:28 am @ eileenwebb

I called my sister from the post office parking lot to tell her that I’d just mailed my niece a present and it should arrive on her birthday.  My sister told me that my niece had just found out that she wasn’t going to get the scholarship she had been counting on to go to [...]

My Starbucks Exercise Program

November 8th, 2012 // 6:16 pm @ eileenwebb

I’m now completed 40 consecutive days of daily exercise with a goal of 90 in a row.  It all started when I read the book, The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg and an article in Science News “Fighting Willpower’s Catch-22.”   I started thinking very differently about my own habits.  I decided that I wanted [...]

6 Steps to a Productive Workspace

February 27th, 2012 // 5:46 pm @ eileenwebb

I’ve helped lots of people create productive workspaces – but the reality is that I usually have piles of paper in my own office.  And although I can normally put my hands on what I need in seconds – this “system” is more about remembering when and where I last worked on it than anything [...]

I want my Mama

January 31st, 2012 // 6:03 pm @ eileenwebb

My four year old niece was on the floor sobbing “I want my Mama!”  I had just gotten home from having gall bladder surgery.  Her mother had gone to pick up my prescriptions and my niece had chosen to stay with me. I wanted to hold her in my lap and comfort her, but that [...]

If it weren’t for bad luck

December 16th, 2011 // 6:03 pm @ eileenwebb

I remember watching Hee Haw with my parents when I was growing up.  Not high brow entertainment, but we had a lot of laughs.   There’s a line from one of their songs that has stuck in my mind for years: “if it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” Based on what [...]

Recession – Opportunity not Tragedy

October 31st, 2011 // 8:37 pm @ eileenwebb

A few years ago, I asked Daddy a question: “I know there were recessions when I was growing up, but I don’t remember them affecting us. Why not?” He sold welding supplies for most of his life and his answer was both simple and wise: “When times were good, I sold to people who were [...]

Lessons learned from volunteering

October 4th, 2011 // 5:54 am @ eileenwebb

Last month I visited Bogota, Columbia, as part of a team of ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) volunteers evaluating engineering programs at the Universidad de los Andes.  This was my eighth year as an ABET volunteer (including the first as an observer for training,) but the first time I had evaluated a program [...]

10 Years Later

September 7th, 2011 // 5:16 am @ eileenwebb

My sister called me to tell me to turn on the television.  As you probably did, I watched the planes fly into the twin towers and watched the towers fall. I saw it over and over and followed the other events of the day.  At some point I just couldn’t watch anymore.  I knew that [...]

5S Comes Home

August 18th, 2011 // 8:35 pm @ eileenwebb

I’m in the mid cardboard box stage of moving to a new home – I can eat, sleep, shower, and relax, but there’s still some boxes around.  This is way better than early cardboard box – when most everything is still in boxes and it’s a treasure hunt to find life’s essentials. Along the way [...]
