The first article is the cover story for St. Louis Woman Magazine. I met Holly Cunningham, the owner of Hollyberry Baking and Hollyberry Catering, years ago. When I need a special gift for a friend, relative or client, there is nothing better or more unique than a Hollyberry crate box full of awesome (and I don't throw that word around lightly) sweets, cookies and goodies. The article is a great story about entrepreneurship, passion for your work, work/life balance and success.

The second article is about strategic planning from fellow speaker and author, John Spence.

Finally, check out www.toolsforsuccess.com to see the new pod casts. This is a brand new site and they have really put together a tremendous amount of content. Some of the top authors, experts and speakers are interviewed about such topics as human resources, innovation, customer service, networking, leadership, sales and marketing. My pod cast on the site is here. The site is adding new pod casts every week.
Let me know what you want to see on this blog. Right now, the blog is just an infant. My goal is to post every day or at least every other day. Tell me what you would like to see. Humor? Travel stories? Tips? Articles?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Here is what John wrote about his article:
"It overviews what I believe are the six most important things every company MUST focus on to achieve and sustain success. I read more than 160,000 pages in order to develop the ideas I put forth in the 16 pages of this manifesto — so there are likely at least a few good ideas in there for you to steal."
Here is the link to John's "manifesto": http://www.changethis.com/46.01.AchievingExcellence
Until the next post, don't forget to Bunny, Bunny, Bunny today.

The interview is fun, informative, interesting, fast-paced and probably the feel good podcast of the summer. People will be talking about three things this summer: Iron Man, the Democratic primary race that will never end, and my first podcast.
In full disclosure, I do not own an iPod. Yes, I realize my hipness quotient is low. Yes, I realize I may be the last person in America without an iPod. Yes, now that I have a podcast, I may look into purchasing an iPod.
Enjoy. Listen. Comment. Share. Until next time, don't forget to give a few Ta-Da's this week.
