Bad Girl, Good Business

Where is the love? (120 Things: Part Deux)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I received an interesting comment on my February 10th post…

The post was a list of 120 things I had learned over the past 60 years. Because I’m a bit of a digital geek and I’m trying to build a fan following before I publish my next book, I had boosted the post on Facebook. A random stranger wrote, “Where is love?”

I searched the list and discovered that it was, in fact, referenced in #17.  It was only on the list once. “Believe in love.” Perhaps I was thinking mostly of business at the time. Or perhaps I just take love for granted because passion is so much a part of everything I’ve done in my life and work.

But tomorrow IS Valentine’s Day and I don’t want to be perceived as a cold, heartless, blogging bitch, so here’s a list of love…60 more things I’ve learned in the last 60 years. I’m certainly not a love or relationship guru. Sometimes I feel I know way more about SEO and WordPress than I do about love. Or maybe I just keep my heart inside my body most of the time.

Although LinkedIn blogs are called “Pulse,” they often don’t have one. So, I’m going to spew my heart all over the web today. Love it or leave it. Feel free to comment on it or contribute to it. And have a Valentine’s Day full of heart and soul!
