It’s The Cotton Anniversary!

Life is interesting in the way it winds and weaves. When you plan on zigging, it zags. When you plan on ducking, you stumble over a trip-wire. And sometimes when one door closes the only way out is through the air ducts. Two years and four days ago I drove into Detroit to begin theContinue reading “It’s The Cotton Anniversary!”

671,040 Minutes

I’m back to my regular blogging schedule again. I apologize for the brief hiatus but my site was/is undergoing a makeover. 1 year, 3 months, 9 days since I packed up my desk and started working from home. I’m BACK Detroit!

I Am Ready To (bed)ROCK!

I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I have accepted a new position as a Senior Team Coordinator within Bedrock. The joy is multi-faceted. Let me explain.

Seer: Be Seeing You Real Soon!

Screw The Status Quo

Oops, I did it again. I decided to leave the cushy, comfy, familiar job I had and had mastered in favor of the unknown. It was an impulsive decision that I was hyped about for a day before I began my traditional spiral into regret induced despair. I’m big on second guessing myself. I don’tContinue reading “Screw The Status Quo”

New Job, New World

So in late March I received an exciting offer. To give you a bit of background though we have to go farther back to February. That’s when the first round draft picks were taken from the healthcare campaign I was working on and moved them to the mortgage campaign I am now working on. IContinue reading “New Job, New World”

New Job!

Over the past few months I have struggled with finding the right job. After my previous employment ended I realized that I needed to make a change in the way I approached searching for new career opportunities. First and foremost, by recognizing that I don’t need a job that gives me a sense of greaterContinue reading “New Job!”

Fun Fact Friday: The Fun is Relative

Writing is hard.  It also is oftentimes lacking in reward of a monetary nature.  Most of us who do write do it because we have to.  Because there is a drive inside of us, a thirst that simply cannot be quenched.  We simply have to write. But because I have a singular aversion to homelessness,Continue reading “Fun Fact Friday: The Fun is Relative”

A Little Bit About Emma
