When I was 16, my Aunt Becky (30 at the time) told me, “As you get older, life goes by faster.” I thought she was crazy. But now, older and wiser, I know she was speaking the truth. I don’t know what laws of the universe are at play, but I feel like I blinked [...]

Focus On the Burrito

Shortly after I stepped into the cab I knew I’d forgotten something, something very important. You know when your "Spidey sense" kicks in (yes, I’m going geek) and you just know something ain't quite right? @#$%! We were only a couple of blocks from the hotel, so I immediately began pleading my case to the [...]

You Need a Vacation

To say I’m exhausted is an understatement. Our friends from Atlanta headed to the airport at 4:30 am today; two ladies I was schooled by (so they have a couple of years on me) who out-walked, out-shopped, and out-drank me their entire visit in Hungary. There are two reasons for this: one, I’m out of [...]

Is Anyone Listening?

Sai, a member of our PitchRate community, recently sent me this story his grandfather told him about Saint Narada and Lord Vishnu, the God of creation in Hinduism: Saint Narada prided himself on being Lord Vishnu’s most devoted follower. One day, Narada found the Lord praising a farmer for his own devotion. Outraged, Narada asked [...]

I had no clue what the Serbian reporter was asking me. Thank goodness Oscar was there to translate the conversation. I met Oscar earlier this spring on CouchSurfing.com when we couldn't find a pet-friendly place to stay in Serbia. While we weren't exactly in the market for a couch to sleep on, I thought the [...]

Are You Speaking a Foreign Language to Your Target Audience?

The view from our apartment balcony, looking toward the Old Town of Dubrovnik. George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city, about which he said, "Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik”. I spent almost three months in Croatia last winter and I distinctly remember stepping out of the shower one [...]

My Baby Shower Invite

Before I started writing my first book (available now!), I’d heard people say that writing a book is similar to giving birth. I thought, really? Isn't that a little over dramatic? Obviously due to a natural barrier, I haven’t given birth. (Not that I wouldn't have wanted the experience, but life is life.) But now [...]
