Bodacious Business Horoscopes: Languorous Libra!

The next “Bodacious Business Horoscopes” entry features that lighter-than-air seeker of balance and partnership, Libra the Scales. The zodiac system’s most diligent diplomat tends to tip both ends of the scales in pursuit of fairness (from September 22 or 23 to October 22). Although Librans may seem impetuous “doers,” they are deep thinkers who take… Continue Reading

Bodacious Business Horoscopes: Vocal Virgo!

The next “Bodacious Business Horoscopes” entry features the zodiac’s primary perfectionist, Virgo the Virgin. This amiable amigo carries the weight of the astrological world upon his or her shoulders (from August 23 to September 22). Virgos relish the chance to help and serve others, dispensing situational analysis and advice galore. I’ll wager that the introspective,… Continue Reading

Bodacious Business Horoscopes: Lavish Leo!

This month’s “Bodacious Business Horoscopes” entry highlights that regally royal member of the zodiac system, Leo the Lion. My good friend King (or Queen) Leo rules the astrological skies from July 21 or 22 to August 22, and greatly esteems both the limelight and applause. I’ll speculate that the high-performing sales or marketing professionals at… Continue Reading

Ace Your Next Job Interview or Client Meeting, Robin Williams Style…

This isn’t a disrespectful attempt to newsjack the release of Boulevard, Robin Williams’s final film. The current blog post was resting comfortably in my editorial calendar for several months. I’ve experienced many emotions since the beloved actor-comedian’s suicide last year (on August 11, 2014). But I delayed blogging about Mr. Williams because I didn’t want… Continue Reading

Bodacious Business Horoscopes: Crabby Cancer!

Earlier this year, I threatened to start an “evergreen” blog-post series focusing on horoscopes for business people. The time has come to fulfill my destiny, fix the glitch, make you an offer you can’t refuse, and utilize just about any other famous movie quote I can think of. We start with Cancer (the Crab), which… Continue Reading

Business Wisdom from “The Big Lebowski” (The Dude Abides!)

Continuing in the fine tradition of this blog, I would be remiss if I didn’t add The Big Lebowski to my existing collection of film-inspired business wisdom. Previous entries include Working Girl, The Princess Bride, and Ghostbusters (an ode to Harold Ramis). We all know Jeff Bridges finally earned himself a shiny little gold man… Continue Reading

Non-IRS “Odds and Sods” for Your Overtaxed Mind

I thought about writing a blog post about the history of taxation (with and without representation) in America, how the Internal Revenue Service came to be, and so on. Then I realized I would doze off while doing the research AND lose you, dear reader, along the way. Why does a blog post on Tax… Continue Reading

Business Lessons from “Ghostbusters”: an Ode to Harold Ramis

This blog post celebrates the brilliant Harold Ramis, who passed away much too soon on February 24. I just can’t resist focusing on one of his most successful films (and a marvelous screenplay), the original Ghostbusters. To the untrained eye, Ghostbusters I is a silly (and paranormal) 1980s romp through New York City. But this… Continue Reading

Business Leadership Profiles from Greek Mythology: Aphrodite (Mighty!)

Valentine’s Day is almost here, therefore: I must create a business leadership profile for Aphrodite, the loveliest goddess in Greek mythology. If this is your first time reading about the power players who ruled Mount Olympus Inc. (back in the mythological day), previous profiles include Zeus, Hera, and Poseidon. Some of you gentlemen might think… Continue Reading

LEGO Business Sets in Need of a Marketing Champion

You may find this shocking, but I live in a home that doubles as a shelter for all things LEGO. And hey, look at the calendar – today is my son Ethan’s eleventh birthday (with no evidence of his passion for LEGOs waning anytime soon). I feel the right thing to do is unite my… Continue Reading
