Communication at work is important to master. Body language, verbal, written and digital communication all fall under the umbrella of communication. As you are molded into your company culture, you learn a new vocabulary and a new way of verbally communicating. Even your body language is molded into how you present yourself around your team and clients. The result of this mold represents both you, as a professional, and your company.Read More
Welcome to Bar Babble. Bar babble is the place where you can have a chance to sit down and chat about business, marketing, career development and wellness with the Old Fashioned Marketing (OFM) team. It is the place where we post topics that are relevant, important, resourceful, and post some topics that no one wants to talk about because of the fear that you will never be understood. Bar Babble is an OFM resource and community where we can vent about anything and everything. We share information to help you become successful not just in your professional life but in your personal life as well. OFM is all about wellness as the present world is all about glorifying the term "busy". But the OFM team are trendsetters and we are now setting a new trend in the workplace to support busy hard-working professionals so they can be the best versions of themselves. Let's bring back joy into the workplace and in our daily lives. No more feeling understood, unheard, uninspired or feeling lonely. We are your business besties, the person you can vent to at the bar after a long day. Does this sound like something that you want to be a part of? We will post new blog posts on Wednesday at 5:00 pm (happy hour) with topics about business, marketing, career development, and wellness. This is the time where we can virtually meet up at the bar, grab a drink and babble about important topics so you can go home feeling refreshed. If there are certain topics that you want to chat about for our next Bar Babble, comment on any blog post or send us an email. We want to make sure we support you in any way.
So, will I see you next Wednesday at 5:00 pm? Grab a drink and let's bar babble.

Picture this. The California sunshine peeking through the towering trees that guide a clear pathway to a beautiful and tranquil garden. The wind from the Pacific Ocean moves through the leaves, as you feel it caress your skin. It’s 8 AM. on a Monday morning. You walk aimlessly with no destination in mind. You walk with a hot green tea in your hand and headphones in as you hum to your favorite music. But where are you going? You’re in the concrete jungle and you need to namaste.Read More
For those that are thinking about starting their business, or currently work in a company as a marketing manager, this Bar Babble is for you. Today we will be discussing effective marketing strategies and how we can turn ideas into action-driven strategies. With my past experience in being in sales & marketing in hospitality and whenever I consult with current clients, I notice the same thing. There is a lack of a clear marketing strategy from start to finish. Normally, an idea is conceptualized followed up by action items that result to nowhere. We are too excited to execute an idea and see it come to life, but fail to take a minute to think how it will be an asset to the company as a whole. Successful businesses EVOLVE with their marketing strategy. They know their vision, stick to it, and evolve as the company, their clients and society evolve. But many failed businesses start with their vision, rush their strategy and derail from the foundation. Don't just create any marketing strategy. Create an effective one. Remember, don't work hard, work smart.Read More
Living in a virtual world, the human connection is becoming outdated, or some may so "old fashioned" (#winkwink). But we will always need any type of connection or support to stay focused, inspired and connected. What if I told you there is a place that you can go to, where we can celebrate our stresses and successes? A place where you can be unfiltered, unapologetically you, and feel supported after a long workday.Read More
