The fridge is not your enemy

By Audrey Thomas, CSP, Organized Audrey


After dreaming about what it would be like to work from home, avoiding a stressful commute, you have now discovered that dream is a nightmare. We recently polled more than 1,000 people who are new to working from home. They listed distractions and loss of productivity as two of their biggest challenges. Their comments included:


  • All I do is eat!
  • It’s taking me longer to get my work done.
  • I can’t get my spouse/kids to realize I still have a job to do.
  • I miss my team


First of all, recognize that the distractions you face today are not the same you faced in your office. You may now have kids, pets, and housework all vying for your attention.

Passions Behind The People

Lauren Manuel, DeSilva Meeting Consultants, a DMC Network Company in Hawai’i


The memory...

A full moon, sitting at the Mauna Lani Resort at an event called, “Twilight at Kalahuipua’a” when my friend asked me to get up and dance a hula for the Hawaiian style “talk story” event for 200+ people.  I got up, danced a hula and when it ended, my boyfriend got up on stage and asked me to marry him.  My friends sang our first song and we danced with 100 other couples under the moonlight, ocean front at the very spot we were married.


The time of day...

Just after sunset at the beach…when the coconut trees cast a shadow on the ocean and the sky above Mauna Kea Mountain behind you is painted in purple and pink.

Going Vegan, Staying Vegan... and Staying Sane

By Aideen O’Keeffe, Marketing Assistant at SoolNua


My meat free journey began at the age of 12 when I became vegetarian. For my 21st birthday, I decided to challenge myself and adopt a vegan diet and lifestyle. The idea of merely eating vegetables and fruit terrified me. A life without milk and cheese, now that is scary. I am four years into my wonderful vegan journey and I have never felt better.


At 21, little did I know that the decision to go vegan would be the most transformative and profound move of my life. Since adopting a vegan diet - I am the happiest and healthiest I have ever been, my energy levels are sky high, and I rarely get sick anymore...
