  • R-E-E-E-J-E-C-T-E-D!!!


    January 29th, 2008 | Business Rants | Giovanna | 5 Comments

    That was my favorite word to yell out when I was cheering for the team. I played and watched a lot of basketball back in school and for some reason, I would get more excited when shots were blocked than shots made. I would scream…R-E-E-E-J-E-C-T-E-D with so much glee and enthusiasm. I was a point […]

    I was able to finally review the contents of this package. I’ve always been a fan of trend spotting due to my fascination on how ideas spread and the creative minds behind them. It also delivers a wealth of ideas for future business pursuits. The section on open source footwear and ubiquitous e-commerce got the […]

    No Golf for 6 Months

    I think the last time I swung my clubs was back in August 2007. I miss playing it but I expect to be a little rusty the first few games. The farthest I’ve gotten was 215 yards with a men’s Big Bertha 2 Plus Driver. That was my best but I average around 185 yards […]

    What Happened to The Mighty Greenback?

    January 26th, 2008 | Business Rants | Giovanna | 2 Comments

    When I started working after college in my early 20’s, I was very proud of the United States’ progress and the strength of its currency. I have traveled to pre-Euro Europe, Canada and Mexico. The U.S. Dollar went a long way back then and everything seemed “cheaper”. What happened? Aside from the devaluation of the […]

    How Mista Wong Changed My Life

    We argue a lot over petty things and you easily get excited causing you to raise your voice. Sometimes, we behave like undisciplined children. But beyond that, you have opened my eyes and showed me how to love and commit. The best way to show someone that you really care for them is to love […]

    Final Fantasy 3 DS

    I got this game for Christmas and I’ve been playing it for hours each day. I’m so hooked, too bad I’m almost at the end of the game. I love the Final Fantasy series and prefer RPG games over any other genres. The best feature of FF3 DS is the classic 16-bit style of play. […]

    Why It's Healthy to Have NO WORK Days

    January 10th, 2008 | Business Rants | Giovanna | No Comments

    We’ve all been burnt out at sometime. If you’re self employed, I think it’s healthy to have days where you do no work at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love and enjoy the challenge of my job but we all need time out. Feeding ducks at the park, visiting friends and family or just […]

    First Meetup on Blogging

    This was a defunct group that I took over a few months ago. It’s been around since 2002 and although it had over 200 members, they were mostly inactive. I decided to add more stuff on my plate and committed to have the first meeting in over a year. It was interesting because slots were […]

    The Wisdom of Socrates Could Have Saved Athens

    January 6th, 2008 | Heroes and Inspiration | Giovanna | 3 Comments

    Everything we know about Socrates were based on writings by Plato, one of his pupils. Aristotle known for his study of biology and zoology was also Socrates’ student. He was a such a unique man. During the height of Athen’s power and wealth in the short Pericles Era, he roamed the streets barefooted in ragged […]

    Sincere Blogging 101

    January 5th, 2008 | Marketing | Giovanna | 2 Comments

    I’ve always been fascinated with blogging and how it’s lauded as a great tool to spread ideas and all that stuff. Many have tried it but end up quitting after not generating enough traffic. Technorati alone follows over 44 million blogs so it’s really competitive out there. Passion Blogging is the Newest Fashion A HUGE […]
