    On Wednesday, thousands of Iowans - organizers had hoped for a half million of us - got out and walked a kilometer on a sunny October day. About 20 of us at Business Publications Corp. Inc. participated in the event, and it was an enjoyable thing to walk and talk together over our lunch break. Continue reading>

    In my ongoing series, I’m attempting to help you better understand how to get featured in the Business Record. I think one of the areas that can best put you in position to be featured in the Business Record, is understanding what types of stories we are looking for. And to do that, you need to understand both our mission and that it’s not about you. Continue reading >>>

    I am an Iowa State fan. I come by it naturally, having graduated from ISU in 1992 and having met my wife while I was there. I’m emotionally invested in the success and (oftentimes) failure of the athletic teams that wear “Cyclones” on their chests. Continue reading>

    From that, you might have concluded that I was an army brat. However, I left home early at an early age to pursue my dreams of ballet. Of all the places I have lived, I find Des Moines the most fascinating – and the best. Continue reading>

    Needless to say, like many families with children that age, we do a lot of reading before bed at night. There are usually two or three books that get stuck on repeat, and lately the book of choice has been “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss. Continue reading>

    If you haven’t established your employment brand, it’s long past due. Why? Because an employment brand creates excitement for prospective recruits about the potential of working for your company. Continue reading>

    Some families like to go to football games together. Others might enjoy the theater or riding bikes. One of my friends’ family are all members of a rock climbing club and spend time every week scaling a tall wall. My family? We’re geeks. Continue reading >

    On a recent weekend, my wife and I were out shopping at one of the big-box home improvement stores in Ankeny and decided we would finally buy three items to take care of projects on our mutual “honey-do” list. Continue reading >

    I’ve spent most of my career working in newsrooms, big, open rooms with lots of noise: reporters conducting phone interviews, editors talking to reporters, usually while trying to listen to the police scanner or monitor television news shows. Continue reading >

    When I went to my first Young Professionals Connection event nearly four years ago, I was scared. The same thing was true when I went to my first Business Record event... Continue reading >

    If you’re anything like me, sitting at a desk for eight hours a day can be pretty taxing on the ol’ joints. I’d wager that at some point or another, all office dwellers suffer from some form of physical discomfort because of their daily 9-to-5 routine. Check out this list of a few of my favorite yoga poses you can use to combat achy hips and legs, lower back pain, eyestrain and everything in between. Continue reading >

    I grew up as a very competitive athlete. I was involved in all kinds of sports. Quite often in sports, you hear inspiring and motivating quotations from coaches and team leaders. (Side note: Why don’t business leaders give more pep talks?) Continue reading >

    See, it’s my job and my passion to know the skinny on what’s cool around Greater Des Moines. To appreciate construction and public art and fresh flowers on Fleur Drive. To brag about Broadway shows and public playhouses. To beat a path to the door of any new eatery in town.
    But I think my view was becoming filtered, like an Instagram picture. My elevator speech about life in Greater Des Moines was a little stale... Continue reading >

    Realizing I should let it go with an “Atta girl, Ellie, I’m proud of you for knowing the difference,” I instead launch into a lecture about the difference between prescriptive and descriptive ways of viewing word usage and grammar. Being 13, Ellie doesn’t give an inch and we reach an uneasy détente—her insisting that grammar is an infallible set of rules that must be adhered to 100 percent of the time... Continue reading >
