Personality & Professionalism

What do I look for when I hire people for Personality!
Life is too short to deal with bad chemistry. 
I also want someone to take responsibility when things go wrong. I find that to be a true test of people. 
Bad situations are learning experiences, and nothing upsets me more than blame being thrown around. 
I would just prefer it if you say, “It happened. I’m sorry, and let’s move on.”
I love professionalism — in a housekeeper, in a janitor, in a waiter, in a barista. And I’ve done a lot of those jobs!

Nice Guys

How to Find a Good Guy 
by Jason Kennedy 

"They’re out there. Here’s my advice… 
  1. Do your research. What’s on his Instagram? Is he hammered? With Hooters waitresses 90% of the time? Move on. 
  2. Notice the details. Look at how he treats your server, the valet. Does he have a wandering eye? Chances are he’s doing it when you’re not around too. 
  3. Allow him to BE good. Some girls are turned off when guys are nice. Since when did treating you with respect become a bad thing? 
  4. Know who you are. Maybe you don’t want a good boy. No judgement. But guys can spot it when women aren’t themselves. Confidence will get you what you DO want." 

You can’t meet someone until you’ve become who you’re becoming. 
- Nora Ephron, writer and filmmaker -

T-Swift Squad

"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: 

There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. 

But if you just focus on the work and don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going... 

You'll look around and you'll know that it was YOU and the people who love you who put you there. 

And that will be the greatest feeling in the world." 

Taylor Swift at the 2016 Grammys
