Taking on Ageism in Ads

Flip through a magazine or turn on your television. Where are all the older people? Even the few ads that have older people – well, let’s just say they don’t look, act or talk like anyone I know. They’re all obsessed with insurance policies and wrinkles. AARP hired Cindy Gallop for its Disrupt Aging campaign to target ageism in advertising. They couldn’t have picked a better person. Cindy is kind of a legend in the ad world. She’s tart, funny and blunt – ageism doesn’t stand a chance.

Sourdough Lessons

I’ve been trying to perfect sourdough and it’s left me feeling kind of crumby and crusty.

Bread is considered one of the most humble of foods. Little did I know that humble bread would humble and humiliate me in a battle to doughy death.

Meet “Juicy” Carrie Morgridge

Meet “Juicy” Carrie Morgridge. Carrie’s a philanthropist, and she and her husband recently rode mountain bikes from one end of the Continental Divide to another. You might think it takes loads of money to be a philanthropist – Carrie married into the Cisco Systems family after all – but she didn’t always have money and she talks about how giving has always been a part of her life. I kind of wish I could bottle Carrie’s energy!

Side Hustles with Amanda Dixon

Amanda Dixon, an analyst for bankrate.com, says her company has done a study showing that we’re doing more side hustles than ever before. What’s a side hustle? We used to call it “moonlighting.” You know, that little extra job for that little extra cash. You might be surprised at why we’re side hustling these days…and what we’re doing.

And it got me thinking…there are times when I don’t sound like I think I do, even when it’s communicating with others. How often do you listen to yourself? Listening to yourself, on the Keep it Juicy! podcast.
