Bad Girl, Good Business

New Year…New Kid in Town

“Hmmmmmm….” I thought to myself.

(Not literally, but you get the idea.)

I now write a lot, which was always the dream. I write for theONswitch clients (of course), HuffPostInc.com, Nightclub.com, and for my own three sites — Bleisure Living®, sheBOOM, Embrace the Machine®, and this one, as well as keeping all my social platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) as fresh as narcissistic daisies. I’m a little bit Perry White…a little bit Lois Lane. And, of course, I aspire to be Wonder Woman.

So, how do I keep all this stuff going. Taking a page from old-school journalism, I’m going to create a unique “beat” for those sites that have been somewhat random and I’m going to FOCUS.

Rebooting & Relocating

This is the second time in less than two years that I’ve moved to a totally new place — a place where I had virtually no friends…no business connections…and no idea where I was driving a lot of the time. I officially moved to Arizona on December 7th and am officially cutting the ribbon on my Silicon Desert Highway office on January 22nd (the beginning of the Age of Aquarius).

The last time I did something so radical was when I was 18 and flew alone from New York to Michigan to start college. But universities have a built-in social network — dorm mates, classmates, and party mates. Flying into an all-new community at the age of 61 is whole different scene.

Over the next year you can follow me on my business adventures and learn how to deal with being the “new kid” in any situation. Even if you don’t move anywhere, you’ll learn some great tips for meeting new business contacts, making new friends, and motivating yourself to get off your ass and out into the world at any age.

So, move over just a little bit all you people at the Arizona “cafeteria table.” A new kid is in town.

P.S. Why the Bad Girl? I often get asked about the name of this blog. Especially in this era, that title could be misinterpreted. It’s all about breaking rules in order to grow in business. Women of my age were trained to be “people pleasers” and “rule followers.” I’m done with all that. You can be respectful of history and of others and still be a tad anarchistic and professionally disobedient.

    Nancy, I look forward to following your adaptation journey. You and I first met at a networking event in Westchester County, NY. While my recent personal journey involved more caregiving than writing and performing, I plan to be putting my toe back into the creative, entrepreneurial waters in a new state with a new partner. I am excited to embrace this change, and pleased to have your guidance as a template of sorts.
