Am I qualified to give advice? No matter, sometimes I give it anyway!

Counting On Gratitude

      No Comments on Counting On Gratitude

To put it mildly, 2020 has been a dumpster fire so far and I’m not holding out a lot of hope for it to get much better anytime soon.  This pandemic has upended everyone’s life in some fashion. But we can’t forget there ARE still good things going on.  People are having babies.  People are getting married.  People are falling… Read more »

What’s Really for Sale?

      4 Comments on What’s Really for Sale?

I have a deep seated hatred for the word “influencer” along with its partner phrase “influencer culture”.  It’s all just so fake.  How many times have celebrities and pseudocelebrities gotten busted for including the directions from the company they are supposedly promoting out of the kindness of their hearts in their social media posts?  It’s laughable.  Even more laughable are… Read more »

Cubicle Day

      No Comments on Cubicle Day

Today is Cubicle Day. Cubicles have been around a lot longer than you might think- they were first introduced in 1967!  The idea was to break up open office spaces and allow for a bit of privacy/ personal space.  Clearly that idea really caught on, and the majority of us have worked in a cubicle at some point in our… Read more »

The Return of the MLM- a Horror Story

      No Comments on The Return of the MLM- a Horror Story

My dislike of MLMs in general is pretty common knowledge.  I’ve written about it before in posts such as:  https://beckypalmer.me/how-not-to-sell/  .   I prefer to not purchase from companies structured that way and I’ve told people as much plenty of times.   Yes, there are a few exceptions, but they are getting fewer and further between. In the last 6 months or so… Read more »

What’s Working for You?

Many of us are entering or just past a month of stay at home orders/ very strong suggestions from our mayors and/ or governors.  Everyone admits it’s hard on us psychologically, but we for the most past understand why it’s required right now.  We also understand that there is no good way to know when this “new normal” of “uncertain… Read more »

Keep Your News Feed Healthy

      No Comments on Keep Your News Feed Healthy

Chances are you are up to your eyeballs in COVID-19 news.  It’s pretty hard to escape it since using social media and watching TV are two of the most common activities going on right now.  It’s good, even necessary, to be informed and to know how to protect yourself.  This is a world event none of us have experienced before… Read more »

The One I Really Didn’t Want To Write

      1 Comment on The One I Really Didn’t Want To Write

By now we are all suffering from information overload on COVID 19.  And there are an exponentially higher number of opinions on the topic, with, as usual, the least informed making the most noise.  It’s tiring. The fact is, we have not seen anything like this in 100 years.  Some have compared this global pandemic to the AIDS scare of… Read more »

Right Hypocrisy

      1 Comment on Right Hypocrisy

Much has been made over the recent awarding of the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh.  I’m not going to comment on whether he did or did not deserve the award, if for no other reason than I am not sure what the requirements actually are. What I am going to speak to is that Rush Limbaugh is a fantastic… Read more »
