When I tell someone where I work and what we do, they usually look at me with a confused face. I then go right into saying, “you know, when you want to put your company logo on a pen for a trade show.” After that, the response is usually, “oh yeah, we do that.”
At a previous job, I was responsible for hosting the company’s golf outing that supported local nonprofits. It started out as a small event and over the years it grew to a point that it was maxed out in space, golfers, and sponsorships. A good problem to have!
We moved the event to a larger golf course to allow for more space and golfers, but the money from sponsorships is what helped the nonprofits, so we wanted to grow that as well. We increased our existing sponsorship levels, but I wish I would have had this idea when I was hosting the event.

The dust has settled, the sugar crash has taken over, and another Employee Appreciation Day can be claimed a success. The event was themed You’re Totally Rad Like the 80’s!

It, unfortunately, seems to be the new norm to fry a computer with a terrible virus or to have your identity stolen. I consider myself a savvy person and therefore, I didn't think that I was vulnerable to these types of attacks. Ironically, I was just chatting with a friend about this very topic... I guess the karma gods heard me boasting. Only a week later I clicked on a seemingly normal popup window prompting me to update my flash player (thankfully on my personal computer) and I quickly felt like something was wrong.
