Diary of a Food Baby

Killer Cookin PR Brady AdventuresThere’s food and then there’s food.

Fast food.  Not my idea of a good time.  Been there and done that. And with that routine came less energy, more pounds, and decreased health.

I’m a food baby.  I love food.  My idea of food is real home cooked food, and I love to make it.  Dad was a baker, and also big into ethnic cooking from his roots in the Ukraine.  He taught me well.  Being the creative person that I am, now I dabble with an array cooking techniques of my own, often with his wonderful influence.

People tell me I’m a good cook.  I’ve made meals for groups of 150 people.  Some of my favorite dishes are of course …come to think of it, what food isn’t a favorite? And the best twist is to be able to serve something up from the wild that I dispatched myself.

This space is reserved for fellow foodies, to enjoy a new spin on an old favorite or a new spin on what could be a new favorite!

The Outdoors Way

Words from Wild PR Brady AdventuresIf you need time in the outdoors like you need air to breathe, you know where I’m coming from.  If you don’t,  perhaps this section will help you better understand those of us who do.  Or maybe inspire you to become one of us. This space is saved to describe and express those “never enough” moments that bring me back to what matters most.

I’m Just Sayin’…

Girl Outdoors PR Brady AdventuresWhile this page is referred to as Girl Outdoors it isn’t necessarily restricted to girls only.  I don’t tend to have many traditional girl-like interests, but we ladies stick together regardless of our personal interests, because, well that’s what we do. Some of my female friends struggle to understand my passion for the outdoors, and sometimes they don’t understand my career oriented passion either.  In actuality, the same could be said of men.

I’m often asked.  “Where do you get your strength?”  At the end of the day, it all comes down to being ok with who you are, where you are, and why you are.  Having faith.  Trusting the system.  Believing.  Getting back up again, and again.  All that and a pot of coffee is usually a good start for me.

Whether it’s a home life, health, social or business setting, we can face some hard core challenges.  And how many of us were sent out into the world with an Easy button to help with those trying times?

I’m a firm believer that with knowledge comes power.  This space is reserved for the female persuasion in particular, and speaks primarily to those things we can identify with, along with gentle reminders that “you’ve got the power.”    I’m just sayin’…

Business Tidbits, Acumen and Observations

Its Just BusinessSome people are blessed with a simplified life.  I’m not really one of those people.  My background and interests are very diverse.  I’ve been engaged in many aspects of business over the years, have learned many things, shared a few ideas, made some mistakes, made some progress, made some money, and helped some folks along the way.

I bring to the table a level of business acumen that is not often seen today.  I commit, I own, I get results.  I subscribe to being a lifelong learner.  One of the things I enjoy most is helping others reach their potential—it often helps me to get closer to mine as well!  Topics that you may see on this page include things like Best Practices, The Black Box, Conflict and Resolution, Marketing Magic, Customer Service Solutions, Behavior in Business, Forward Thinking for Success Today.
