Hello. I started working with the C&A Foundation and fell in love with the Sustainable Vision.  Working to promote organic cotton along with WWF ,CAB International and the Government of Balochistan,  it's like a soul cleansing experience.  My colleagues in the foundation are friendly and are able to digest my communication and vice versa.

Phrases I didn't expect to use at work but are becoming common

"Your room or mine" (virtual conference room - get your mind out of the gutter)


"Do you mind if the kids are in the background?"


"Wait are you eating a [insert random food here]?"


"Why do you have a standing speaker in your bedroom?"


"Hang on the dog is eating my headset"



What else have you caught yourself saying or hearing this week? Let's laugh together!

It's okay to mourn all that you might be losing throughout this trying time.

I've spoken to startups who just had the demo day of their accelerator canceled.


And event organizers who've been forced to shut down events they've been planning for months


Even managers facing a hiring freeze for teams that were supposed to be growing.


We are all losing out on opportunities, facing an uncertainty that is downright unparalleled.


Give yourself...

Great post and reminder, Kasey. I know for some they view this as a crisis that has never happened before. It isn't the first or only crisis we might experience. Some people a little older (like me) have lived through them. Financial/economic, resources (no gasoline), terrorism. It all ends up working out fine. Mind you, I'm a positive person but n...See more

All around the world, tons of business professionals are suddenly working from home for the first time in their lives.

And this kind of rapid transition to remote work can be super challenging.


Here are a few tips to make this change just a little easier.


  • Stick to a routine. Get up at the same time. Start work at the same time. Eat lunch at the same time. And finish your work at the same time.
  • Get dressed like you're going to work. What you wear can have a big impact on your ...

This pandemic crisis facing our country and our world presents us, each of us, with an opportunity. To give first.

It is during crises that we show who we truly are. What we are made of. What we value.


And now we will be tested, to show our friends, colleagues, family members, neighbors, and fellow humans that we care.


As you watch the news, scroll through social media, and likely experience the anxiety and stress arising in so many of us, take a deep breath and try to ide...

#ashleighsnextact daily goal: Accountability. 

Go through my to-do list and re-assess all deadlines. If I can't make it have conversations with the stake holders to adjust. Typically there isn't a problem is you need to miss a deadline...as long as you communicate in advance!!


That way if you HAVE to make a specific deadline you can move what you can move to make it work.


Communication to get accountabilit...

#FridayFocus - and kinda my theme this week.

Going back to basics. In all the turmoil it's easy to get distracted and stressed. Pick one thing you want to accomplish today that is IN YOUR CONTROL and will help you not just today but for the next few weeks.


My goal: Reach out to 15 people I haven't connected with in at least 6 months and see how they're doing. Worst case I connect with old friends. Best ...

In light of all of this panic and all of this fear, be kind.

Be kind anyway, but especially right now, be it more than you have before.


You might think this COVID-19 fear is overblown. Or maybe you're downright petrified.


Either way, our country and our world are dealing with an ever-evolving crisis that will impact people in ways we just haven't ever experienced in this lifetime.


People are being forced to make hard dec...

#SalesTip of the day - it's nearly impossible to be *too* organized.

Never forget the basics. #SalesTip of the day - it's nearly impossible to be *too* organized.


Make that To-Do list.


Calendarize milestones in projects.


Log EVERYTHING in the CRM and set reminders.


Block time for prep work and things you don't like doing.


Organization is the difference between delivery and crisis management. It's amazing how much calmer I feel dur...
