I Don't Want To Do Your Dirty Work

By: Andrea Jones

Monday, February 17, 2020
Solo-preneurs need to network to get business, and networking can be an exhausting, relentless and often-unrewarding mistress. So much has been written about how do it right; however, one recent encounter should be filed under what NOT to do. I offer it as a cautionary tale for experienced and inexperienced business people alike. more

Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

By: Melissa Shaver

Wednesday, January 1, 2020
“Melissa, you need to get comfortable being uncomfortable. This isn’t the first mistake you will make in your career and it will not be your last. If it is one thing that I’ve seen from you, it is that you have never made the same mistake twice.” more

How to Deliver Negative Feedback

By: Andrea Jones

Sunday, December 1, 2019
The young man sat before me, palms sweating, eyes darting around the room. I had called him into my office to ask about what seemed to be his lack of interest in the job. “Tim, you seemed very eager to work here during the interview, but now, every time I give you some background reading or expect you to take initiative on a project, you don’t follow through. What’s going on?” I asked. more

Can We Connect Our Past to the Present, and Our Present to the Future?

By: Susan Capurso

Tuesday, October 15, 2019
When we think about our grandparents’ great-grandparents, do we know anything? And why would that matter? So, you’re thinking, what I don't know won't hurt me. Maybe it can. There is something very deep and significant in knowing our bloodline. Knowing where we came from and who we came from gives us a sense of validation and purpose. more

Bravery Conditioning

By: Maggi Lee

Friday, September 20, 2019
I have always had a fear of writing. English was my second language, so I always felt insecure about my written and verbal communication. Naturally, for my undergraduate studies I chose to major in English Literature to overcome my fear. I imagined, once I am done with my studies I would go on to be a great writer and storyteller. I finished my undergraduate degree successfully and felt more secure in the power of my written and verbal communication to delivering my message. I was, however, more

The Power of Information

By: Laura I. Joseph

Sunday, September 1, 2019
I recently had the privilege of meeting and hearing Chris Gardner speak. It caused me to reflect on what I do for a living, how I do it and why I love what I do. For those who don’t know Chris Gardner, he is the Will Smith character in the film “The Pursuit of Happyness.” As compelling as that movie was, (and I don’t know of any parents who don’t squirm as Will Smith’s character deals with the challenges of taking care of his son), the book is even more amazing. more

Where are all the Mentees?

By: Beth Meixner

Saturday, June 1, 2019
Each June we begin anew with our Ms Moxxie group mentoring program for young professional women. And each year, I encounter the same challenge of recruiting 30 young women as our mentees. You would think that most young women would embrace the rare opportunity to get a mentor at the onset of their careers. Yet each year I find myself asking... more

Your Mindset Matters

By: Beth Meixner

Saturday, February 2, 2019
I was reading an article entitled The Career Mindset Trick That Will Help You Reclaim Success at Work by Solange Lopes, Founder & Editor at The Corporate Sister. I agree with Solange when she writes that a “career-driven mindset focused on growth and overcoming obstacles, while still taking responsibility for our own path” is crucial for success. She explains that when we lose this “warrior spirit” we give up on our growth and begin assuming lesser roles. And even worse, accepting lesser more

In Appreciation of Enthusiastic Contrarians

By: Lisa Pomerantz

Friday, January 25, 2019
Beth Meixner, my dear friend and client and founder of Moxxie Network and Moxxie Mentoring Foundation, refers to me as her "enthusiastic contrarian". And I take this as a compliment! I view my role as an attorney to identify risks, to point out information that might have not been considered, and, generally, in Beth's words, "to solve problems before they happen." I am fortunate that she sees the benefit of doing so, because the saved more
