What To Do When You Drop the Ball

We all have business setbacks, disappointments, and moments of being thrown off course by the constant changes around us.

Our options: we can stay stuck or use these moments as opportunities to learn, grow and create something better.

Let’s commit to moving forward into the new year with a commitment to continuous learning and improvement!

Jen Slaw taught us to think like a juggler: Set clear goals, embrace a growth mindset, and implement deliberate practice….all while staying flexible in the face of change.

She shared her unconventional career path from structural engineer to professional juggler to speaker and her 4-step framework for greater performance and fulfillment in life and work.

We had FUN tossing some balls around as we:

  • Focused & Prioritized efficiency and presence. Juggling is NOT multi-tasking.
  • Improved Collaboration & Communication. Teams should always be getting tighter.
  • Identified Stumbling Blocks. The same mistakes yield the same results.
  • Created & Mastered New Strategies. Commit to a growth mindset & continuous improvement.
  • Heard Inspirational Stories – from party-clown to Broadway!…and 3 steps you will apply to your own career growth.


“People left energized and inspired by both the actual practice & deep metaphors of juggling.” – Exponent Philanthropy

“Left a lasting impression…a memory our team will continue to share in future conversations.” – Bristol-Myers Squibb

There is something for everyone to commit to in society. Pei Su has worked with the world society for the protection of animals for 2 decades.

People love animals. However, love and relationships with animals are very different in other countries outside of America. In some Asian Countries, there are such things as bear farming, illegal wildlife trades and the left-behind children who investigate that stuff.

Join me as I speak with Pei Su from ACTA Asia as she shares about her work and what is happening. She says many of society’s issues are not a quick fix.

Segment 1:

Noreen begins the show introducing her guest, Pei Su. Noreen talks about how they met and how she thinks what Pei is doing stuff that influences other people to do it with her. Pei Su first talks about her work and volunteer experience in Taiwan. She then talks about why she decided to leave Taiwan. Pei then talks about the difference she saw how animals are treated in other countries outside of America.

Segment 2:

Noreen came back talking about the cultural differences that they saw between each country. Such as it is very common in America that people let their dogs get in to their houses or walk them but in some other countries dog lives in the backyard and they are not allowed to go in to the house. Pei also talks about how she had once talked to a five year old kid about his dog. The kid likes the dog but his mother did not allow him to play with the dog because she said the dog is very dirty. She talks about how kids mind is formed by their parents and it affects how they treat the animals.

Segment 3:

Noreen came back talks about the importance of educating kids and parents at the same time.

Pei also talks about the charity that she works to improve the kids that was left behind, she is trying to improve their education with fifteen dollars for one child to learn ten lessons. Pei then talks about her thoughts about the Climate changes in China and how she thinks it can be improved.

Segment 4:

Pei continuous to talk about how she wants to make some changes and help the left behind children. Pei also talks about how kids are seeing their parents as role models. Noreen phrase it as “they don’t do what they what we tell them to do, they do what they see us doing” Kids copy what their parents are doing in their early stage which means the parents acting is very important.

The Secrets Google Analytics Can Reveal About Your Business

Understanding Google Analytics and regularly reviewing the activity reports is one of the most important things you can do for your business as it tells you whats working and what is not working in your overall digital marketing efforts. It can help you clearly define and target where and how you should spend your time in attracting new business.

Every business owner has pressing questions which include;

  • What do you see when you Google yourself or your business online?
  • How do your potential customers find your business website?
  • Who is visiting your website, and when?
  • What are they looking at when they visit?
  • How much is a click worth to you?
  • How long are website visitors staying on your site?
  • Which pages or blogs are most popular or drive the most lead conversions?

November’s Lunch Lady event went over how to answer these questions as we took a deep dive into the world of Google Analytics!

  • We reviewed some of the most important steps to improving and setting up your Google Analytics, Webmaster Tools, and Search Console properties and showed you how to connect them to your Google Ads account if you have one.
