As employee health and wellness is brought to the forefront of today’s workplace, alternatives for sitting at a desk for seven or more hours a day are becoming increasingly popular. Slogans like “Sitting is the new smoking,” and “Sitting is the most underrated health threat of modern time,” have only brought attention to some of our nation’s challenges of obesity, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

Enter creative desk solutions. It started with the “stand up desk” – the easiest and least expensive way to combat sitting at your desk for hours at a day while still getting your work done.

How To Stand Out In A Meeting

5 Key Strategies to Help You Shine in Front of a Business Audience 

It’s widely known that women are underrepresented in key leadership positions and in the C-Suite throughout corporate America. According to the Center for American Progress, while women make up 45% of the overall S&P 500 labor force, they hold only 19% of board seats, and only 4.6% of CEO slots.  Women also aren’t known for speaking up and standing out in meetings as much as their male counterparts. Whether it’s the cause – or the result – of women’s underrepresentation in the corporate hierarchy, it’s important that women in professional settings feel confident, respected, and appreciated when sharing their opinions and asking questions in meetings.

There are few brands that I love as much as I love Lululemon. I would wear it all day, every day, if I could get away with it. I am still waiting for the high-end athletic wear retailer to put out a “professional” wear-to-work line. A girl can dream!

Aside from being a great company with amazing and stylish products, Lululemon also has an incredible office in Vancouver, Canada. It’s exactly how I would envision the active wear giant’s headquarters to look – characterized by clean lines, natural elements, and warm tones.

Commercial Landlords: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

good-bad-commercial-landlords-in-san-diego

As an exclusively tenant-focused commercial real estate broker, I get asked almost daily what makes a landlord a good landlord, and whether it really matters to a tenant if they lease space from a good landlord versus to a bad one.

There are many qualities that differentiate the good from the bad, but there is really only one quality that matters. Respect. Respect for their building and how they take care of it. Respect for their staff, as that staff is on the front line working with the tenants day in and day out. Respect for the brokers that support them and help fill their buildings. And, most importantly, respect for the one thing that makes this whole business work: the tenant – the ultimate customer in this whole equation.
