Pivoting Your Business isn't Really Pioneering Innovation

OmicleBlogB-RocketLaunch.png

There’s a post going around various Facebook Groups that asks the words or phrases related to Covid-19 that you are most tired of hearing. The comments can be pretty funny.

According to Dictionary.com, PIVOT means a pin, point, or short shaft on the end of which something...

Blog-BlackLivesMatter.png

I don’t know what to say.

I’m speechless.


Turn your profile picture and banner images black to show you support #BlackLivesMatter. If you don’t, then you’re against them—this makes my heart hurt. What happened to Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, makes my heart hurt.

Do the official statements by major...

The Future of Brands in a Post-COVID-19 World

O-BlogImages-Covid19.png

Late spring is when the chatter about “generations in the workplace” takes over my newsfeed. It makes sense, seniors are getting ready to graduate and executives need to know what they are in for with “this generation”. And, every year it is pitched as “something new” or “something impossible” or…well you get the idea - you’ve read the articles.

What’s often not talked about is WHY is this generation the way they are? WHAT...

How to Build a Steady Stream of Referrals Right Now

OmicleBlogB-BelieveValue.png

It’s easy to assume that your clients will refer you—after all they chose to do business with you and we all know you are AH-MAZ-ING! Right?!?!

Yeah, not so much.

Just because your clients chose to do business with you, doesn’t mean they will refer you. That is a fact.

You already know that a customer will share a bad experience with a company at three times the rate of a positive experience. So first a client has to have liked doing business with you—that’s...

How to Create Mission and Vision Statements that are Sticky

OmicleBlogB-Vision.png

While these words are common-place in both the nonprofit sector and the business world, there is often a lot of confusion around what they actually mean. Without clarity, it can be challenging to know if your organization truly knows what it does and even more challenging for the market to understand why they should do business with you or donate to your organization. Remember, a confused mind never buys. So allow me to explain each of these as well as the organization's purpose and core...
