Lessons learned about business...from listening
to a baby
Published in the Kitsap Sun, October 24, 2022

In a new reality of staffing shortages, employers need to be more attuned to the “cries” they hear from employees. The urge to blame the pandemic, the economy, or the attitudes of Millennials (and those generations after them) is both specious and dangerous for your business.

Sprucing Up Your
Website for the Holidays
Most people research online before they purchase. That could take the form of looking up prices, options, or educating themselves on the product or service they’re in the market for. Many buyers also use a business website to verify hours, availability, make reservations, etc. During the holiday season people are busier than ever and it’s common to check things out online before getting in a car. If your website isn’t easy to navigate, with important information front and center, you may be missing out on a host of customers. Here’s how you can ensure it’s in good shape.

Helping Women Return to Work Isn't a Women's Issue
Published on Fast Company, April 2022

A shocking statistic earlier this year reported that, in January 2022, men fully regained all the jobs they’d lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about women. Right now, the labor participation rate of adult women hovers around 58%, which is barely higher than 57% in January 2021—which was a 33-year low.

This isn’t just a women’s issue—it’s a business issue. During the pandemic, woman-dominated sectors experienced disproportionately higher rates of job cuts. These systemic issues prevent women from rejoining the workforce.
