The Stress Nest

We are often our own worst enemy when it comes to stress. In an effort to “cram it all in” we end up missing out on the joy of our lives. Over scheduling ourselves can increase our stress significantly. It’s also a tough habit to kick. But reining in the tendency to fall into the […]

July 04, 2019 at 06:00AM by CWC I recently fell down an internet rabbit hole that taught me the scintillating history of—I kid you not—boredom. I closed my laptop with a newfound appreciation for the family road trips of my childhood that, at the time, made me want to cry for the sheer purpose of […]

Before Silicon Valley was dominated by the Big Five tech companies, there was Mozilla, an organization founded by a motley crew of coders and activists who believe the internet should be open to everyone. Those punk rock roots live on in Mozilla’s Firefox browser and its decision to stop running ads on Facebook. On this episode, hear Mark Surman, President and Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation, on why “privacy” is a new business opportunity for entrepreneurs, whether he thinks kids should learn to code (or not), and how he keeps from burning out while fighting the monopoly mindset of Silicon Valley. Also, Manoush and Jen explain why they’re ok with a certain kind of “branded” podcast like Firefox’s IRL, which Manoush hosts. Season 4 of ZigZag is about examining the current culture of business and work, figuring out what needs to change, and experimenting with new ways to do it.

When considering creativity, most people probably think in terms of famous artists, musicians or the creative geniuses among us. Or maybe they know someone who has honed talent to near perfection so see them as creative. Rarely do we look at ourselves that way. Yet scientific research indicates we are all wired for creativity from […]

OMW! It’s been so long since I’ve written a blog post. It’s been so long since I’ve written a recommendation list. What have I been doing? I don’t know. Things got crazy. Easter came and went. And it’s been raining for something like eight weeks. Well, maybe I’m exaggerating. But, seriously, a little sun for […]

Living in a technology dominated world has led people to believe that they are living the good life with the convenience of having a “personal assistant” in their pocket 24/7. But, what is supposed to make our lives easier, actually deceives people and leaves people without the privacy that they except to have. Our phones […]

“You mean, you haven’t even been outside yet today?” Austin exuberantly inquires, his baby blues sparkling at me with incredulous laughter. That often happens when he comes home from work on my off-days and, without thinking, I ask him what the weather is like outside. (Then at lightning speed he grabs my waist and teasingly […]

Songs for the Struggling Artist

Last year, one of my favorite podcasts stopped updating. I didn’t worry too much about it. Many podcasts are uneven in their production. They stop and start. I’m used to it. But then, while trying to decide if I should go to Werk It Women’s Podcasting Convention, I looked at the list of speakers and […]
