Hitting the Snooze with Sarah Moe

HR Hardball

There are a few things in life we take for granted despite how critical it might be to our very existence. Breathing, for one, is something we do 20,000 times per day without even giving it a thought. Despite it being a subconscious function, it turns out we’re almost all doing it wrong.

Juice Box Hero!!

HR Hardball

Back when my kids thought I was cool, we had a pretty amazing run of “Car Karaoke” episodes* that we posted to YouTube. In some episodes , the family dog even made an appearance. Easily some of the most memorable times of my life, I still share them on occasion just to embarrass them.

Pack Light, But Effectively

HR Hardball

As I continue to assimilate into a new role with a new company in a new industry complete with its own lexicon, library of acronyms and secret handshakes, I continue to remind myself “ none of that matters.”.
