Whiteboard-Lead

A friend once told me a story about his college professor who, no matter what he was explaining, always drew a circle on the classroom’s whiteboard.

I checked the parking lot again: The coast was clear. We settled into the back seat of my car. What if someone caught us? Someone would tell Dan, surely. He’d throw a fit; he’d throw me out; he’d end our relationship. After all, what kind of monster would cheat after six months? There must be a darkness inside of me[ Read More ]

Event Recap: An Evening of ADMINgling

Lead-Image Our first ever ADMINgling meetup took place in Dallas last week, and we’ve been trying to figure out how to best summarize the whole experience. Turns out, one of our guests put it better than we ever could:
ADMINgling wasn't your typical networking event. It was fun without making you uncomfortable; light but professional; and educational without changing the fun vibe to heavy and clunky. I'm so glad that I attended. I've already told a couple of colleagues about it!

What to Do When a Task Challenges Your Patience (But Not Your Intellect)

conquer

This may sound a little weird, but, when I’m in a certain mood, I relish tasks like color coding storage closets, stuffing envelopes, and (brace yourself) data entry. There’s a certain soothing and meditative quality to jobs that offer little variation and require even less problem solving.

But, what about those days when your attention span is strained or you’re … [ Read More ]

NEW Event Series: #ADMINgling!

Whoever said “It’s not what you know. It’s who you know” was, in our humble opinion, just a little bit off. We think both are equally important, so why the mutual exclusivity?

That’s why we’re so pumped for our new event series, #ADMINgling! These relaxed, after-work events bring the what: discussions on topics that are important to office ninjas, … [ Read More ]
