The Never Ending Apartment Search As A Metaphor For Life

I need an apartment. I came home from Israel and have been staying with my folks but this girl is about to turn (cough cough) 30 and needs her space. I love my family and I am so thankful that despite close quarters they were willing to take me in… but I need my space. So I have been on the hunt for an apartment. First I had to get a job. Some level of stability is important, you don’t want to get a lease and then not be able to afford......

Prime Word of Mouth Marketing

I believe in Word of Mouth (WOM) marketing. It is insanely effective. If you don’t believe me, just look at your Facebook. That is the ultimate in online word of mouth. But there is another group pioneering WOM as well. BzzAgent is a group that solicits everyday people to try products and talk about them. It is amazingly attractive even without the rewards. I have tried a Sonicare Toothbrush, food, cosmetics, all sorts of different products. Lately, I have started working on a campaign for SniqueAway. It is a luxury getaway site.......

Social Media Plan Template

I have been asked what social media plan template I use by several colleagues and students. Here is one that I found online and have modified for my own use. It is a great jumping off point for social media practitioners. Social Media plan You are welcome to use it and I am happy to share but I would love a shout out or link to my blog in exchange. Remember me when your CEO gives you a raise! 🙂 REVISED 8/21/12: Some folks have ‘kindly’ pointed out that the linked social......

Dear Egypt

Dear Egypt: Please stop looting your museums and for goodness sake, DON’T destroy your pyramids or the store-cities of Pithom and Ra’amses. We refuse to rebuild. Love, The Jews P.S. Great-Grandpa Moshe wants us to remind you that it was only through the good grace of God that we stopped at the number ’10.’ Don’t get any funny ideas about real estate to the east… It’s been all over Facebook and Twitter but I had to include it here. Look, it’s a funny joke but Israel is really in an awkward spot......

Back from the Holy Land

Okay… I get the point… I stink… I am sorry. I have been back to America for 20 days and to Colorado for just over two weeks and I haven’t posted a blog. Very not cool of me. But you see, I have been so overwhelmed with this reentry/transition back to my regularly scheduled life… It was like I froze Talia and took a trip in an alternate universe. Now I’ve come back to find out that the world has moved on but not only was regular Talia frozen, she has this......

A New Year, A New You

I wrote this post for MetroImma and we couldn’t run it but I really liked it so I am going to post it here, enjoy! (Thanks to Cindy, who got the piece started.) New Year, New You? Some Jews get offended if you refer to January 1st as The New Year, as if recognition of it somehow undermines the legitimacy of Rosh HaShanah.  It doesn’t have to be a huge celebration or even a nod to secularism or other faiths.  But there’s also no reason why we shouldn’t use every opportunity to......
