How do we get more security presence at the Randall’s on Ben White in South Austin, @Safeway ? It’s gotten so scary there.
Last night someone attempted to break into our rented RV while my husband was filling it up with gas. It was so scary. I had been following the RV in our car and all I could do was drive toward the person and honk like a maniac. We are okay, but that was my cardio for the week 😢

I pay almost $9,000 a year in property taxes in Austin, Texas for the luxury of living two blocks from this giant homeless camp under the 71 bridge. I’m fed up.

My recommendations on next steps to address homelessness in Austin:…
We desperately need help with trash clean up under the 71 bridge near Pack Saddle Pass. You and I walked together under that bridge 9 months ago and today, the situation is dire. We have more people camping than ever, but worse, they’re building unsafe makeshift shelters.
We don’t feel safe in our neighborhood. We can’t walk to businesses in our neighborhood. Law abiding, tax paying citizens are locked in their homes out of fear. The environment is exponentially more unsafe than it was a year ago for South Austin.
We travel to grocery stores in other neighborhoods because we don’t feel safe here. That harms the retailers along Ben White.
I encourage you to drive around the route we walked back in January. See for yourself.

As a consumer and as a marketer, I can tell you with great confidence: Hootsuite has a lot of improving to do.
I upgraded to a bigger, fancier Hootsuite account earlier this month and I have to tell you: The two issues I've had have been handled HORRIBLY. I'm so disappointed. And I've been a customer for years.
Who is your favorite company for managing social media content and private messages?
Hi @Hootsuite_Help I’m frustrated again. I thought I signed up for $599/mo plan, but yesterday you charged my credit card for $7600. I filed a support ticket yesterday. It’s been 48 hours. Can I pretty please get some help? I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!

Austin is a very casual town, but I always tell our Snackbox apprentices that you’ve got to dress the part. You don’t have to wear pantyhose to be taken seriously, but a good pair of heels doesn’t hurt.
My super-secret organizational go-to is the Bullet Journal. Don’t know what that is or curious about how to set one up? Here’s a tutorial: Do you use a Bullet Journal?
I’m most proud of our clients sticking with us. That client longevity tells us two things: 1) We’re great at client service. 2) We’re creative in our solutions, constantly working to find what’s going to benefit our client’s bottom line the most.
Leadership isn’t just telling people what to do. Great leaders have a natural curiosity, the ability to motivate and to think beyond an assignment. These traits help you, as a leader, focus on successes and see the bigger picture. #leadership
Happy people do great things. As a business owner, it’s imperative that you work on morale daily.
Thinking of moving to Austin? Here is a dose of reality... 80 degrees and it’s not even 7:00 a.m. yet
It’s not glamorous, but waking up at 4:30 a.m. to work is a big secret to success. It’s quiet. My email is caught up, I’m handing out assignments and planning my day.

If you can get past your ego and listen to critique, your work is only going to get better.
Understanding where anger is coming from is the first step in both solving the problem but also potentially making positive changes in your business.
