Overqualified = Qualified with benefits!

Overqualified: The state of being skilled or educated beyond what is necessary for a job. I always wonder why clients looking for consultants, or employers looking for good employees, see people who they deem overqualified as a bad thing.

AOL – Can You Really Go Home? My Ex’s 25th.

For TEN years of my professional life, I grew into the marketer I am at AOL. I consider those years, at least to this point, my “Glory Days”.  In many ways, AOL was my college campus, where I learned to be an Extreme Marketer!  I have so many stories to tell, but suffice it to say, when […]

Small Business Networking: Advice & Resources

I have a couple of things to say about networking as a small business owner: Do NOT act like the guy in the video above!  When I first started networking, I thought it was “all about me”, and would ramble on about what I could offer, and didn’t take much time to listen to others.  After a while, […]

Local Farmer Gives Back to His Own

 I saw a sign and had that “do this!” moment.    That’s the day my girls and I were on Route 9 in Harpers Ferry when we saw a sign about a two-day music fest, and I read about all the bands, then “The Nighthawks”!  OMG, I feel like I’m back in time rocking in Bethesda!  I […]
