Conversation with Pat Farnack on Employee Retention in Today’s Environment

Studies show that negative emotions in the workplace have been rising. These negative emotions make people less enthusiastic about returning to work and incentivized to seek a more positive experience elsewhere. In our conversation, Pat and I discussed strategies that ...

"The eldest by a minute, she is the only heterosexual in our family; her twin is a lesbian and so are her two Moms...."

"... Because I grew up in an Irish-Catholic household where sexual feelings were at best contained, at worst annulled, I took particular pleasure in allowing hers to flourish. The boyfriend’s parents... had been raised in other faiths and had converted to Islam. They insisted on strict compliance with religious laws.

Outfit Formula: Soft Green

By soft greens I mean shades of sage, mint, seafoam, and very light versions of teal. These types of greens are not as earthy as shades of light olive. Some tones are more blue, some more green, and some more grey. Inge likes to wear these types of greens when they aren’t too yellow. In fact, when we met Inge for the first time in Belgium thirteen years ago, she was wearing a column in this soft shade of green, and looked smashing! Lovely with her dark brown hair, hazel eyes, and cool-toned comp...

The Responsible Approach to Fashion

Fashion is a big part of your life, bigger than you might even imagine. The average person spends about $16 a month on clothes. Since you can spend that much on fashion, it’s vital to approach fashion responsibly. Ethical Sourcing It’s essential to start with the fact that all clothes are not produced ethically.
