By |November 16th, 2011|Smart Is the New Pretty, WhyDid Wisdom|

Oh the million dollar question… What do you want to be when you grow up?  Now, I know, many of us are already college graduates with several years of job experience under our belts, but that doesn’t mean we are living out our greatest career fantasies.  So, really, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Hey, these bills aren’t gonna pay themselves.



Smart is the New Pretty: Let’s Socialize

By |October 19th, 2011|Smart Is the New Pretty|

As women, we are known to be very social creatures.  So, when the buzz word  “social media” started popping up everywhere (and is even now considered a “career”), we thought to ourselves, “Psssh!  We’ve been doing this for years.”  While there are plenty of folks out there who consider themselves to be gurus, experts and mavens in the venue of Marketing/PR 2.0, most of them haven’t a clue as to what they’re talking about.  So, if you’re looking to increase your social presence, it’s probably best not to leave it to the “experts” and start learning yourself!  Social Media is constantly changing so you better keep up!

Now go fire up your Tumblr, Twitter, and Flickr.  It’s time to get social… and while you’re at it, be sure to Tweet, FB, and YouTube with WhyDid.

Oh, our cellphones… They sure have come a long way.  When’s the last time you left home without it?  We basically live our lives on our phones.  Whether we’re emailing, texting, Tweeting, or making an actual phone call, we can’t live without them.


Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to take this call.

I’ve always been a firm believer that no matter how beautiful you look in that new Kimberly Ovitz, if you open your mouth and have nothing more intelligent to talk about than which pro athlete one of the Kardashians is dating, then you’ve just wasted a lot of makeup and time in the mirror.  So, to help you lovely ladies out, I’ve found some of the web’s hottest headlines that are totally chatter-worthy:

Even if your date turns out to be a dud, at least you know you were armed and prepared both mentally and physically.
