Amy Spreeman Freelance Home Office

Home Business Attention Deficit Disorder

We freelance writers, graphic designers, consultants and independent sales types are all joined by a common bond in that we don’t have a boss or supervisor asking that we account for our time. We LOVE that! But freelancer beware, there is a hideous disease that can overtake our minds at any given moment. It’s called […]

BlueJacking: Was I vulnerable at the Express Lube?

Today I stopped by the local express lube and car wash, another routine errand in my busy afternoon. Settling into a swivel chair, I positioned myself in front of the window where I could see my car being lovingly cared for by three service technicians.

  Here in Wisconsin we are emerging from another foot of snow dumped on us overnight—but not many of us are chilly or even lukewarm to what’s been happening here in the Dairy State.

Working on the weekend?

Some of you have already started — some can’t wait until 5 o’clock. And then there are the rest of us. We have no intention of putting our Blackberries down at the movies or saving that text until halftime at tonight’s game. Because sometimes the boss wants an answer right away. If the boss is […]

A Coke by any other name

I was raised on pop. I’ve lived in places where it’s called coke. Which is descriptive if you’re cracking the top of a red and white can, but calling a root beer “coke” is disturbing to me. Now I live in a place where we call fizzy canned soft drinks “soda,” and I’ve adapted my […]
