Buckets of Patience

By |2020-04-23T18:25:01-04:00January 9th, 2020|

At the beginning of 2019 netlogx handed each employee a small silver bucket and challenged each person to complete something on their bucket list.  To assist in doing so, the company generously provided a financial bonus to help the dreams become a reality. Many of my co-workers chose travel as their bucket list item, and [...]

Don’t Be Complacent About Your Compliance

By |2020-03-26T15:43:17-04:00May 23rd, 2018|

Say the word “compliance” and oftentimes it generates groans and eye rolls.  Compliance is considered a necessary evil by many.  It’s not that people are against doing the right thing.  It’s because compliance is perceived as time consuming and costly in terms of non-billable resources.   As the compliance manager for netlogx, a consulting services company [...]

The Power of the Red Pen

By |2020-03-26T15:55:29-04:00March 7th, 2018|

In elementary school I imagined myself growing up to be a teacher, sitting behind a desk with red pen in hand and grading a stack of papers.  While I did not become a teacher, I do find myself frequently called upon to proofread the company communications, business proposals and client-facing presentations.  I even sometimes make [...]

Inspire Your Heart with Art

By |2020-03-26T16:00:59-04:00January 30th, 2018|

January 31st is Inspire Your Heart with Art Day. Of the wide array of art created in the world, it’s the pieces that move us to tears or cause us to burst out in laughter that remain with us for a lifetime. Whether we are touched through music, dance, painting or words, art has the [...]

Into the Dragons’ Den

By |2020-03-26T16:09:37-04:00January 11th, 2018|

When we were told to prepare for our recent team building session by watching an episode of the Dragon’s Den, I discovered this was the British version of the U.S.-based reality show, Shark Tank, that allows entrepreneurs to present their ideas to a panel of self-made tycoons, hoping to land investments for their ideas.  Afterward, [...]

Re-commitment

By |2020-03-26T16:28:21-04:00August 3rd, 2017|

The recent netlogx all team meeting focused on re-commitment.  In addition to recently recommitting to their marriage, owners Audrey and Nick Taylor announced their re-commitment to netlogx which turns 20 years old in 2018.  This got me to thinking about what it means to be committed to someone or something. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines commitment as: [...]

Memorial Day

By |2020-03-26T16:32:07-04:00May 25th, 2017|

Memorial Day was established by General John A. Logan, to remember the soldiers and sailors who died in the Civil War.  It was first celebrated on May 30, 1868, at Arlington National Cemetery. “We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they [...]

Honesty and Respect

By |2020-03-26T16:34:00-04:00April 27th, 2017|

As defined in Wikipedia, honesty refers to a facet of moral character and connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, and theft. Honesty also includes being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere. Benjamin Franklin said, “Honesty is the best policy.” I agree with that statement but I would add that honesty with respect is [...]

Sitting Tall in the Saddle

By |2020-03-26T16:35:39-04:00April 6th, 2017|

Growing up I was shy and had a decided lack of self-confidence.  I was an honor roll student and would know the answers in class but it was painful to be called upon by the teacher or have to give speeches in school.  Having any attention drawn to me would cause an immediate reaction of [...]

You Can Make a Difference

By |2020-04-05T16:07:21-04:00November 3rd, 2016|

 Thanks to my employer, netlogx, who provides volunteer service leave, on September 27, 2016, I participated in the Official Indy Do Day Service Project of the Rotary Club of Indianapolis. You Can Make a Difference – That’s what the brochure from Pack Away Hunger said that was placed in front of my seat.   As I [...]
