Gini! This is so timely! We have JUST been discussing this very thing! I say, have our own library. We could have Ramona the Pug library totally filled out of the gate!

Excellent points! The book looks packed with great info. You and Sam will do very well with helping people understand the definition of influencers and how to strategize for success.

4 months, 3 weeks ago on Getting Things Done: Why Working at Home is Better
We are in the process of going completely virtual! (hands clapping) we found that with our business model, our team is now spread out across the country and out of the country. It makes sense for us.
I do tend to get more done in my home office, and am more focused. If we hadn't had office space, I would have always wondered.....should we, would it make us more productive, etc.
I'm a huge supporter of virtual offices!
@ginidietrich @HowieG @John Fitzgerald to your point, Gini, people are seeking those things on pinterest. When I'm looking for light fixtures, I end up at a site for vintage light fixtures, I'm looking and engaged because I chose to be there. I'm seeking information, on my terms, in my time frame. I don't mind the advertisements, its there where and when I want it.

Gini, we've come to the conclusion, that with our team spread around the globe, with only a few members in town, it's our goal to get there.
Happy to get rid of the lease. (have another year on it) then we'll be implementing a similar set up. We already have "virtual Mondays," which has worked out well.
Our clients don't need to come here very often, and we also meet them in the hotel lobby, when their in town.
Thanks for sharing, Gini. I was going to ask you how it's going! ;)

Welcome to international! Everything happens for a reason, enjoy the blessing of getting to work with Lindsay. Welcome to Gini's team, Lindsay! Have fun!
Lisa, I'm sure you will be missed. I just know, you are going on to great blessings for you too!
The big advantage, I see to outsourcing, is you are tapping into a level of capitol knowledge that would cost you a great deal more, to own. You gain that knowledge and experience with out the long term commitment.
It's a win win!

I teared up on this one too! I walked, from a distance through this with you, and had a prayer chain from your northern family and family in Christ diligently praying!
It was fearful time when we all needed to be vigilant and pray like mad, then trust, and wait.
God IS Good! Our Caleb Henry is a blessing to our family. I can't WAIT to see what all God has in store for this little man!

@ginidietrich My bet is that Virginia Rometty isn't going to yank the sponsorship. She's not going to be the one to make it a bigger issue.
The focus for her does have to be on the business. I think she's choosing wisely by her choice in focusing on the business end. She's above this and is demonstrating her professionalism even though it is a lousy situation.
I believe it does take us back and is an insult to how far women have come and what we've gone through. There is still a glass ceiling, we all know that.
We still battle with it. Clients who treat us differently because we are women. Not being taken seriously in our abilities to lead an organization.
I think the best Virginia Rometty could do is exactly what she's doing. Demonstrate strong leadership skills in pursuing the results she and her organization have identified as key to performance.

@ginidietrich @HowieSPM careful Gini. haha, when facebook first started, my youngest son set up my page and I was traveling on business. He told me to just go in ad fill out the profile. So, I answered the questions. He and @kfas called me later in hysterics. "Mom, YOU LIKE WOMEN?" I said, "Of course, who doesn't!"
I still get grief for that.
I'll wear the T-shirt with you!!!!
1 year, 2 months ago on Augusta National Faces Scrutiny on “No Women” Rule
@ginidietrich @penneyfox I'd have to agree with you on this one Gini.
Yes, it's a club, yes they do have the right to choose. The insinuation of the exclusion is a tough nut to swallow seeing as how it is so specific. It's not based on portfolio or location, it's based on gender. That takes us back a long way.
We hurt ourselves, I think, when we just except such blatant discrimination. Not ok.
