The folks over at Project Eve have been kind enough to allow me to become a contributor on their blog. For those who don’t know, Project Eve encourages female entrepreneurs to communicate, collaborate and share actionable solutions. They’ve got quite a following across social channels, and a fantastic blog filled with posts by women, for women in business.
I’m grateful to them for the opportunity to share some of my thoughts. The most recent blog I wrote for Project Eve is on a touchy subject: How to handle unprofessional behavior in the workplace.
There are things we aren’t taught in college. Some things we learn on the job. I remember my first “real” job working as a Marketing Assistant for Falcon Products (a restaurant/hospitality furniture manufacturer in St. Louis). It was there that I learned about things like business etiquette, delegating and organization. Along the way, I’ve worked in different environments and with all types of personalities. And since then, I’ve spoken with dozens of women about the things they wished they’d been talked to about back in school. I hope you’ll check out the blog and leave a comment. Some discussions are difficult to have. But, many times, these are the ones that get us talking and make a difference.
I also hope you’ll check out @ProjectEve1 on Twitter. I’ve been following them for just a few weeks, and have already read dozens of thoughtful blog posts – and learned countless great tips as a small business owner, marketer and writer.
