How the mentee becomes the mentor

Hoping to rock this kind of enthusiasm for my work

I’ve been a member of a networking group for women in Baltimore working in creative fields for more than three years. I haven’t been very active in it, save for some online input when people have random questions I know the answers to. Until now. The group just started their second year of its mentoring program, and they sent out a request for more mentors. So I signed up. I …

Make your vote count this election day!

Make your vote count and choose your favorite new LBK logo!

I am so sick of hearing about this presidential election, and I’m sort of nervous about the line I’m going to be standing in when I go to vote today, that I decided to hold my own, much more stress-free election right here!

But no matter what your level of certainty in this unpredictable process, it’s easy for something to …

Choosing a company name should take more thought than signing for a package

If I were just starting out my business (you may be thinking that I haven’t been around for decades, and, if we’re being technical, I really only began focusing on my business for about as long as I’ve had the three containers of Yoplait yogurt currently in my fridge, but still, it seems like a long time), I think I would choose a different name. It’s not that I don’t love my …

Why your business needs a website

So your company has a logo. Now what? Before you can even order business cards, your company NEEDS a website. Notice how “needs” was emphasized back there—that was no accident. In this day of technology and consumers’ online habits, a website is not an option. It doesn’t matter if you’re selling products to infants or services to seniors.
