Healthcare, DADCA, nuclear war, taxes, hurricanes, flooding, childcare, human trafficking, job stability, aging parents, opioid crisis and the list goes on. We're up against a bolder that doesn't seem to be moving out of the way anytime soon.
There are a lot of mixed feelings in our political climate and as it turns out, in some of our social cir...
What Woman are Saying About Being Strong
by Marsha Bonhart in Wellness
I was in third grade when I started snooping in my older sister's high school literature books. I had all I needed with Dick and Jane, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, the girl with the crazy braids and freckles (what's her face—ah, yeah, Pippy Longstocking). Then there was Nancy Drew who began to annoy me because her stories all ended the same. Yawn. But the classics were much more interesting and expanded m...

Long ago in an ancient time, humankind was so abusive of the keys to happiness and success that the great elders and wise women of the time decided to take the keys away and hide them where no one could ever find them again.
The Leader of the Wise Women decided to call a meeting of the Council of Elders to discuss the hiding place. When they were all together she put the question to...

The Peter Principle dates to 1969 and describes the folly of promoting someone based on past performance instead of the abilities needed for the new position. It's usually a shorthand for promoting people to the point of their incompetency. As an experienced sales person, I've seen that what often makes a great sales person is not what makes a great sales manager.
High performers focus on the...

I have heard the statement over the years, "If you don t stand for something, you ll fall for anything." This is usually meant to suggest that, at different points in life, you will be required to "take a stand" or declare your position on something even when it is difficult and may cost you something like family, friends, popularity, status, credibility, etc.
I can recall several times in my li...

Twenty years ago, AKHIA was founded by our fearless and dedicated leader, Jan Guisich, during a time when the business world was really dominated by men. Jan defied the gender bias every step of her journey, ultimately growing her two-person firm into an agency of more than 60 employees (talk about girl power!). Driven by her own experiences, some of which consisted of her being the only female i...

I once worked for a boss who operated from a place of fear.
At times, he could be a really good guy. He was a father and a husband, a family man so to speak. He also had a rough upbringing, plagued with health issues and as a result, took pessimism to an extreme. The glass wasn't half empty; it was shattered and broken beyond repair. He was a man waiting for the other shoe to drop, mainly becaus...

One my favorite quotes is by Jim Tressel (the former OSU football coach turned college president): “On your best days, be great. On your worst days, be good. Every other day – get better!”
This is the same approach that I recommend for all those seeking leadership positions within our organization and for any community which they serve: be the best you can possibly be, day-in and day-out, and st...

When people adopt a rescue dog, there s always a lot of uncertainty about how the relationship will progress. Without the benefit of knowing what the dog has experienced in his lifetime, adopters are left to guess and fill in the blanks around what they do know.
When my daughter, Stephanie, adopted six-month-old Harry, an adorable Poodle-Bichon-Frise mix, she knew that he had lived with his domi...

A couple of weeks ago, I faced another unfortunate, racist interaction with a patient I was trying to treat. I got in my car that day, still parked in the hospital lot, called my mom and cried. I cried my eyes out. I could hear the pain in her voice as she coaxed and comforted me, promising me that for all the horrible patient encounters I ve had--plenty more appreciative, future patients were st...

Have you had the good fortune to have someone invest in your professional growth- someone whom, looking back, you realize helped bring you to where you are today? Or, maybe you've never had a mentor and have had to figure it out all on your own? What about today? Do you want to make a difference in someone else's career? Are you wondering how to connect with others?
I've been there and here...

Do you remember the days where you could sit idly over a meal for hours on end, sipping a second glass of Chardonnay and bantering whimsically with your partner of choice, while the last rays of the setting summer sun grace your nearly empty plates?
Yeah, me neither, although I sure wouldn t mind engaging in that fantasy.
To be completely honest, these days I dream about this more than fifty sha...

There a few absolutes that my mother has instilled in me from the beginning:
Success is when preparation meets opportunity.
You can do and be anything that you set your mind to.
Character is something that you give yourself.
While I think that #blessed is overused on social media as a way for people to humbly brag about themselves, I can't ignore the fact that I am truly blessed with pare...

There are a lot of definitions of content marketing and how it works, but I think my favorite is from Hubspot (a great digital marketing resource!): “Content marketing is a marketing program that centers on creating, publishing, and distributing content for your target audience — usually online — the goal of which is to attract new customers. The most common components of a content marketing pro...

It's strange, really: You know you're not the same, nor are the circumstances, but you resist it anyway because it's out of the norm, a bit uncomfortable but mostly tough.
Starting anew, starting again or starting over -- however you choose to spew it -- can be daunting and definitely overwhelming. But it is a necessity if we want to contribute our talents and abilities to the wo...
