I was six or so when the movie Grease first came out. That movie along with my grandmother's style from the 50s are the two most direct influences of my entire fashion-life.

I was sick last night and missed the live airing of ‪#‎GreaseLive‬ but I'm watching it today eating lunch at my work desk!!
Season 1, Episode 1 - FOX enrolls at Rydell High with GREASE: LIVE, a LIVE musical production of the massively popular musical “Grease.”

There's #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday and now #GivingTuesday. A day for giving back.

In our country, 1 in 5, that's 16 million, kids face food insecurity every day. The good news is there is a solution and that's why I am proud to be working to make No Kid Hungry a reality.

This #GivingTuesday, your donation can play a huge part in making No Kid Hungry a reality. Hickory Farms and Kettle Brand are matching all donations up to $100,000, so every $1 you donate to No Kid Hungry can help connect a hungry kid with up to 20 meals.

I am asking for your help to reach my personal goal of $500, which thanks to our generous matching partners, would connect a child with 10,000 meals. Can I count on you to help our children with a $25 donation? That's 500 meals for a hungry child. Make you donation here...

I for one am eternally grateful for all immigrants and refugees courageous and desperate enough to face death just to provide the hope of a better opportunity to their families.

My grandmother escaped the Holocaust. Her bravery is the ONLY reason I'm alive and that I and my children EXIST on this planet. It's a sad state of affairs that can't remember its roots just two generations ago about how most of us came to be in this country and on the planet.

Even though my grandmother is no longer with us, her struggles and steadfast resolve to suffer for the sake of her children - and grand- / great-grandchildren she could never even dream of is appreciated DAILY.

** GO BIG OR GO HOME **

I'm totally head-down for the next two weeks as I / we relaunch my agency & showcase some amazing client work. Office is (fingers crossed) getting renovated and expanded this fall. Staff is expanding rapidly (just brought on a national sales manager!!)

If there is anything I've learned in recent years it is that working for someone else always has undesirable baggage. The inability to be paid what your experience is worth is soul-crushing. It is difficult working on other people's agendas that are nearly never for the good of the staff or clients.

It's on like Donkey Kong suckas.

It is VITALLY important that people understand that a 'large network' of people does not mean anything. I have a LOT of followers on a certain social network and I guarantee you if I posted a link to buy a candy bar for a $1 only five people would click let alone make a purchase. Numbers do NOT equal action.

Hi!
I find true what you and Mack have written. I feel that any communication leads to something and there are cases when some people pretend they are communicating. We buy and sell every day, so it is important that our communication leads e.g. to transactions. I also help people transact. I have more to say about this, so feel free to communicate with me in writing and speech.

2) Tech. Or news. Or merchant sites where you can buy online securely.

No, it's NOT "Cyber Week" & I know if you extend your sales (and haze my inbox) it is because you missed quota, not because you are nice.

Waiting at the doctors office earlier today. There were two other women here - mother and daughter. Mom is in her 90s daughter maybe late 60s. The convo is killing me.

1. They are talking about me as if I cannot hear them. Mom is very worried about my blue polish pedicure. That apparently is why I'm at the doctors. Also, don't touch anything the lady with blue toes touches...

2. Mom is ticked the daughter won't take Monday off work (she already took off today) to take her to the store for milk. Just. Milk. No option of bringing it to her or running errands over the weekend. "I'll just start walking to the grocery store Sunday night to get there Monday morning for milk."

Older folks amuse me much like toddlers do.

For the love of unicorns your company signing a new client is NOT press release or news worthy.

Introduction

Digital Media & Marketing • Published Author • Professional Keynote Speaker • Google+ Trainer • Geek • Doctor Who Fan

Lynette Young has been helping professionals and companies thrive on social media platforms and digital publishing since 2006 when she founded her company Purple Stripe ProductionsHer goal is to make the technology invisible to both her clients and their customers, instead focusing on an immersive brand and storytelling experience that moves the needle forward.

With a expert-level understanding of the popular networks such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube, Lynette makes a point to keep her clients from becoming stale and out of date by constantly creating and curating content on fringe and niche networks. Platforms such as Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr, iTunes Podcasts, Kickstarter, Vemio, Instagram, and SlideShare help her clients reach where others don’t. Multimedia content is of top importance and Lynette is highly proficient with all aspects of social media technology and rich online media such as podcasts, streaming video, and blogging, multi-screen content (mobile, desktop, tablet) as well as cross channel marketing and publishing.

She is comfortable heading up an in-house team or working with agency and client staff to build the best possible solution for her clients to meet goals. Equally effective with both executives and developers, Lynette builds connections and breaks down walls between staff, departments, clients, and vendors. She enhances and augments the participation and involvement of executive, public relations, marketing, advertising, legal, human resources, product development, customer service, and executive in all social media endeavors she champions. She has worked with clients ranging from family owned local retail businesses to Fortune 500 firms directly.

Lynette’s expertise gives her a distinct advantage as an engaging and informative speaker and corporate trainer. Her specialties include social media, online community engagement, and digital communication trends.
