CEO Chap Chat

CEO Chat with Angela Fox  

The breakfast with champions!


Angela Fox was hired as the first President/CEO of the Crystal City BID in November of 2006. Under her leadership, the Crystal City BID has grown in both size and scope, dramatically changing the way the people see and perceive Crystal City. The Crystal City BID is also become a pioneer in the industry, with many of the programs and methods created by Ms. Fox being adopted by other organizations throughout the region.

Prior to working at the Crystal City BID, Ms. Fox served as Executive Director and CEO for Cultural Tourism DC. While at Cultural Tourism, she expanded the capacity, visibility, viability, and reach of the organization in every area from membership and funding, to program delivery. She either initiated and/or delivered creative and innovative marketing programs including three Heritage Trails, WalkingTown Spring/Fall, Warm Up to a Museum, and Culture Cool.

Google+ Tip(s) of The Week 
Whenever I am presenting to an audience about Google+ you can still see uncertainty and doubt in many of the audience faces about adding yet another social media platform to their outreach efforts. To make sense of why Google+ is such an invaluable tool we need to start with “search”! The word search has become synonymous with Google. We often say “I Googled” this or that or “Let me Google that for you!”
Well, there is actually a page Let Me Google That For You! When you realize how powerfully important Google is in our world today it has to make sense that becoming part of the Google+ Community can quickly enhance your SEO ranking online and expand your reach to a broad global community! 
Google is the foundation and Google+ is the layer for social business and social connections!

If you have a question about Google+ send us an email at info@successinthecity.org and we will be happy to answer them!

We are now scheduling appointments for our 2014 Google+ one-on-one as well as group training and consulting to harness the power of Google+ in a powerful way. Contact us at 202-747-1782 x100 to find out more and even make an appointment for 15 minutes of free consulting on when, where, why and how to get started with Google+

Brain Science Tip of The Week! 

Alan Weinkranz playing with passion


How To Re-Wire Your Brain in the StartOver Economy

I found this terrific article by Alan Weinkrantz on starting over and reigniting his life. No matter where you are on your life’s journey I think you will discover something so intuitive and wonderful in touching that spark of passion that lies waiting inside to be ignited.


What I love about this story is that Alan is not writing as a neuroscientist, but has someone, just like you and me seeking to make a change in his life.


Here are some of his tips:

  • Find something creative to do that you have never done before.
  • Introduce new creative inputs.
  • Volunteer anywhere that needs creativity.
  • Borrow a friend’s camera.
  • Break a few habits and mix things up a bit.
  • Shake up muscle memory.
  • Unsubscribe from everything, unless you truly need it. (Yikes, don’t unsubscribe to us! We want to help you be an even better version of you 😉
  • Learn to say “no.”  

Read more on Alan’s tips on re-wiring your brain. 

If you have been wondering if the neuroLeader MasterClass™ program is right for you or your organization or have been intrigued by the “science” of leadership but unsure how it applies to you or your industry, this is a great opportunity to find out NOW!

Thank you to our neuro moment sponsor
