The Perfect Card

How do you choose which thank you card to send when the recipients will be those you worked with at a company that makes thank you cards?  Moreover, how can I possibly find a card that says everything I want to say to my colleagues?  This card has a huge responsibility, to accurately convey the […]

Word of the week: “offer”

Offer. Offer offer offer. Offer, offer? Offer. For the past week I think I’ve heard the word “offer” more times than ever before in my life, and never has it been so loaded with anxiety.  This is the week when full-time offers will be given to the interns that American Greetings would like to have […]

More like American Meetings. The majority of these meetings are held to discuss one of the twelve projects I’m juggling at any […]

Hello from Cleveland

And there it is. Your first impression. Cleveland? I know it is because it was mine too. Don’t get me wrong, I grew up in Ohio and I love this state more than I love kittens but I’ll be the first to say that a summer in Cleveland sounds about as attractive as Donald Trump in […]
