I was talking to my friend the other day who was feeling overwhelmed with work and balancing her personal life as well. She was in a situation where she no longer loved her job and was just dragging her feet every day. I was in her shoes a while back during certain times in my career. To wake up every single day dragging yourself out of bed after hitting that snooze button three or four times is the worst habit of all. But, we all do it.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.
LOVE TO BABBLE?

It has been five years since we have all graduated college and we are all in different points in our lives. We are different people as well. Whatever career path we took, whether we have stayed within that job we got after college, switched companies or even shifted industries, we are all working professionals. We have evolved in our industry and have gotten a sense of insight into the real world. We all have one thing in common (besides our student loans). We are all not fully content in our current employment status. Whether we are job hopping, looking for a new job or just feeling stuck, all of us are tired. What is missing?Read More
Having a career and a personal life is tough to balance. We live in a society where the more you work, the more hours you spend in the office, the more you are valued. You spent endless nights at the office working overtime no breaks, you hardly are eating or even sleeping. You wake up to emails on your smartphone and pick up fast food in between meetings and on your way home. Time slips away as you meet from one client to the next, answer emails, wrapping up a deadline and then before you know it, it is way past the time that you should be at the office. Did you forget to "namaste" today?Read More
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
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
