A few months ago, I connected with a fun and exciting female inventor through my blog. We have been working together a bit….bouncing ideas off one another and giving feedback. This entrepreneur, Becky Lucid, has also been an amazing supporter of the blog, so I asked her to write-up some thoughts for a post. When I received Becky’s entry, I was extremely flattered and a little embarrassed to run it (it was about ME), but I decided to share it with you. Not as a big tribute to me, but rather as a spotlight on the difference one woman can make on another with just an open-mind and a helping hand. I am so thankful for the collaboration that Becky and I share, and while she is not a “mom” in the traditional sense, she is a “daughter” with “mom” responsibilties….read on and you will see:

I cannot tell you how many times I hear “What is the deal with Twitter?” Or, “I don’t get that Twitter thing.” While Facebook profiles seem to be universal now, the world appears to be divided on Twitter.

Never say Never, Never say Never……
That’s right! I am quoting Justin Bieber. Believe me when I say, I cannot believe it myself! After the Grammys last night, you are more than likely at maximum capacity with musical performers, but hear me out……Over the weekend, I joined a group of my friends who have daughters (remember – I only have boys) to go see Justin Bieber, Never Say Never in 3D. I am sure you are saying “NEVER” – that you would never go see this movie. Guess what? The movie was a lot of fun AND I learned something! Besides the fact that Bieber’s mom, grandparents, agent, vocal coach, and Usher tell a compelling story about Justin and his life, the movie is really about branding. You heard correctly – branding. If you are starting a business, growing a business, or rebuilding a business – GO see this movie!
