Girl Boss Alert: How to get employees back into work mode after holidays!

Nick Murphy, a career expert and founder of The Job Lab Podcast, has some tips for leadership on how to make it easier for employees to get back into "work mode" and catching up after a long holiday.

  • Realize that people are people and cut them a little slack that first morning back. It's normal to catch up with colleagues and friends about the long weekend and get any stories out of the way early on. If they're not focused by Day Two, then it's fair to remind them that "we're here to get a job done" and encourage them to focus on it. 
  • Consider planning a team-builder or other event for the first day back. Sometimes it's hard to go from 0 to 60 right away, and something work oriented, but not routine, can be a great way to motivate employees to hit it hard when they get back to their desks.  Some ideas include: announcing quarterly award winners, trip tracker standings, special recognition, a charity team-builder, or the announcement of a new contest starting immediately.
  • Time any exciting announcements to coincide with the first day back, and definitely don't bring bad news to your team on Day One. They're coming in (presumably, much like you are) rested and refreshed. Inspirational news or positive business updates can get the fire lit faster and eliminate the possibility of a sluggish start to the work week.

Nick is a veteran workplace expert has held leadership positions at CareerBuilder, Monster and Indeed before launching his thought leadership and consulting services business, Job Spot in 2014 and later, Mid-America Careers.

Girl Boss Alert: 3 most powerful black women in music industry & how they got there: Ethiopia Habtemariam, President Sylvia Rhone, Juliette Jones

This week’s Billboard cover story features a trio of the most powerful black women at the three major-label groups, Motown Records President Ethiopia Habtemariam, Epic Records President Sylvia Rhone, and Atlantic Executive VP Juliette, Jones.

These women are redefining leadership in a music business that – with label revenue strong, Spotify stock rising and startups proliferating – requires a wider talent pool than ever, from blockchain engineers to bilingual vocal coaches. Says Epic president Sylvia Rhone: “Aspiring female executives will be able to find their place in this music ecosystem – and change the world."

How Ethiopia Habtemariam Became Universal Music Group's Most Powerful African-American Woman: 'I Love Proving People Wrong

Ethiopia-Habtemariam-bb16-2018-feat-billboard-ewqrw-1500.jpg

Ethiopia Habtemariam on others trying to negate her success: “I heard people say, ‘Oh, she got the job just because she’s a black woman and they’re just trying to cover their asses,’ ” she says. “OK, cool. Even if that was the case, it’s on me. What am I going to do to make an impact and assure that other people get these kinds of opportunities in the future? Plus, I love proving people wrong.” 

How Sylvia Rhone Became Sony Music's Most Powerful African-American Woman: 'Many Questioned My Ability'

Sylvia-Rhone-bb16-2018-feat-billboard-eawrijo-1500.jpg

Epic Records President Sylvia Rhone on being a woman running a label: “As a woman, you have to come from a position of confidence,” she says. “There’s a certain gift that women have in their management style that’s more inclusive than a male counterpart’s. One of the keys is to always be your best self. There’s no secret formula to it. You just have to understand that you’re managing a team of people, whether it’s two or 100, that is far more important than you.” 

How Juliette Jones Became Warner Music Group's Most Powerful African-American Woman: 'It's Important We Use Our Power to Support Each Other

Juliette-Jones-bb16-2018-feat-billboard-htrshts-1500.jpg

Atlantic Executive VP Juliette Jones on the frustration of being a female exec often mistaken for a groupie at shows: "Consistently in my career, when I’m with artists, I’ve been harassed because it’s assumed the woman is a groupie,” says Jones. “Ten men with no credentials will walk ahead of me, but security will stop me. ‘Oh, that’s right,’ ” she says, laughing. “ ‘I’m here to try to sleep with Young Thug.’ ”

Girl Boss Alert: Interior Designer Niki McNeill

Niki McNeill,  an interior designer, living & loving in Raleigh, NC. Niki is passionate about living a well-designed life and serving others along the way.  

Images by Amber Robinson | Niki M | Sequins

---

She believes that every space needs a little bit of vintage + a splash of brass;  a southern girl to the core, who loves playing dress up, and that feeling you get in your stomach right as an airplane takes off.

Her Design Firm, SingleBubblePop, began in the fall of 2007 as a way to catalog her journey from pre-med student to interior design professional. The name SingleBubblePop came from the image that she would often meditate on when meditating, Niki would attempt to make her mind so quiet that she could hear a single bubble pop. 

Over the last ten years, her followers have watched her graduate from design school and work in residential + commercial interior design. She even made her way onto HGTV working as a production assistant for HGTV.com, where she learned some of the magic that goes into making interior design content for TV.  In 2011, She had the opportunity to put some of that knowledge to use as a featured designer on HGTV's "Design Wars." What an amazing experience! And, then joined the design team for the Emmy winning show "Elbow Room" which aired on HGTV and DIY network.

Working in television production and on large-scale renovation projects was thrilling, and further challenged Niki to continue her education to serve more aspects of the design industry.

Images by Amber Robinson | Niki M | Sequins

---

That path lead her back to school to complete my interior design degree and enter into the world of architecture! Preparing construction documentation for commercial projects gave her a whole new perspective on the detail that's required to make a space both function and beauty.

Niki's business belief is that the spaces we live, work & play in have a significant impact on our well-being.  You can find out more about this on her blog as she writes about inspirational lifestyle content, style, and of course, interior design!

Images by Amber Robinson | Niki M | February 2017

SingleBubblePop has been recognized by Southern Living, House Beautiful, HGTV.com and more as a blog to follow, and she continues to create notable original content & give behind the scenes look into her design projects. SingleBubblePop Design Studio was founded in 2010 and has delivered staging, a full-service design, renovations and custom furniture solutions to clients in the southeast US.

While studying at Johnson & Wales University, she participated in more than 40 national competitions, earning first place in ten and runner-up in the others. Since graduating at the top of her class in 2004, Calvo transitioned into her professional career and became the youngest chef to work at the five-diamond Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami.

Ready to Launch Your Business? Try Setting Up Shop in These Hot - and Affordable - Startup Cities

New York and San Francisco have long lured entrepreneurs ready to launch their startups. 

oxana-v-524244-unsplash.jpg

---PAGE 31

New York and San Francisco have long lured entrepreneurs ready to launch their startups.  However, the costs associated with setting up shop in those cities are astronomical.  The average commercial rent in these cities is $80.00 per square feet per year.  If most of your capital is spent trying to make rent, well, San Francisco and New York start looking a lot less attractive.

FitSmallBusiness-com Best US Startup Cities

Are there equally appealing cities that are cheaper? Indeed, FitSmallBusiness.com, the digital business publication, researched and analyzed 41 of the largest metropolitan areas and hottest startup cities to help the budding entrepreneur choose the best one to start a business.  The publication analyzed the merits of each city using data compiled from the U.S. Census Bureau, Startup Genome, and CBRE Group to provide you with the full definitive list found HERE.

TOP CITIES FOR STARTUPS THAT ARE NOT SAN FRANCISCO OR NEW YORK

  1. Atlanta
  2. Seattle
  3. Chicago
  4. Boston
  5. Dallas
  6. San Diego
  7. Minneapolis
  8. Austin
  9. Los Angeles
  10. Philadelphia

Methodology
FitSmallBusiness.com based its ranking of the best startup cities on eight metrics, and assigned the following weights for each category based on the category's importance:

  1. Number of startups – 17.5 percent
  2. Venture capital funding – 17.5 percent
  3. Tech talent pool growth – 15 percent
  4. Population concentration of Millennials – 15 percent
  5. City GDP – 10 percent
  6. College degree rate – 10 percent
  7. Mean travel time to/from work – 7.5 percent
  8. Cost of living – 7.5 percent

"I think the biggest surprise from this study is that there is no geographical trend," says Eric Noe, Editor-in-Chief, FitSmallBusiness.com. "That's great news for soon-to-be entrepreneurs who can use this list and pretty much set up shop in any given part of the country."

Doesn't she look the BOMB in that yellow?

we still have the website

Claire Sulmers founder of one of the most sought out online fashion websites shared a post today talking about Instagram shutting down her account filled with over 1 million followers. Claire starts out by saying "When Life Gives You Lemon, Make Lemonade." Then continued to share what she has learned in the days of losing her Instagram account Fashion Bomb Daily.

At 1.4 million followers, we were flying high, churning out content like a machine. Then Instagram decided to pull the plug, and we were left to twiddle our thumbs as the Instagram judge and jury determines our fate.
Working in fashion has never been easy for me. From the beginning, I was told that I wasn’t made for fashion, told ‘No’ more times than I could count, slept on bathtubs and crashed gates until I managed to create something I didn’t even realize the world needed: a platform where fashion lovers who didn’t fit into the traditional box could see themselves reflected in the screens looking back at them.

Girl Boss Alert: L'Oréal Paris Announces Amber Heard As New Global Spokesperson

LOreal Paris - Amber Heard

---

Fearless, witty and smart, defying definition and rejecting convention, meet the Hollywood actress and committed woman making her voice heard.

"I have always loved the fun of beauty and the power of transformation," says Amber Heard. 

To become a spokesperson for this dynamic, world-loved beauty brand that’s been telling women were worth it since before I was born, and to join the L’Oréal Paris family of changemakers is such an honor. I feel like these women – my fellow ambassadors – represent a voice, a power, a movement, an opinion.
— Amber

"One of a new generation of actresses rewriting the script when it comes to having a voice in the world, the energy Amber Heard brings to her philanthropy, to her advocacy and her performances make her a powerful ambassador for L'Oréal Paris.  As we take 'Because I'm Worth It' beauty into 2018," says Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, L'Oréal Paris Global President.

A Texas native who grew up breaking horses, Heard is the first to admit that she never really imagined herself in the world of beauty, though she did dream of beauty pageants as a young girl.

From her breakout role in "Friday Night Lights," the actress has brought her radiant on-screen dynamism to romantic comedies, thrillers and more recently in superhero blockbusters: as Mera in Justice League, reprising the role of underwater Queen for 2018's much-anticipated Aquaman.

At 32, she's a campaigner for equality in Hollywood, calling for female characters and stories to be written and made by women and has philanthropic commitments at home and abroad. Amber is an outspoken advocate for women's, children's and LGBTQ rights. A believer in the healing power of art, Heard is also a member of The Art of Elysium, an organization empowering artists and needy communities to thrive through art. She recently returned from a humanitarian trip to Jordan to visit Syrian refugees with the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) – an organization doing lifesaving work. In 2018, on the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Amber will be joining forces with the UN Human Rights Office.

Next up, Heard will share the screen with Elisabeth Moss in Her Smell, and then be seen in the romantic thriller Run Away With Me. Making her first appearance for L'Oréal Paris at the Cannes Film Festival 2018, the actress will star in the "Worth It Show," a talk show to honor women in cinema, beauty and beyond and inspired by the most-recognized brand slogan in the world.

"Over the years I've always thought not just to be an actor, but to use my voice as a platform for good to make the world a slightly, slightly better place and empower women the best that I can," says Heard.
