Today, I received an email from Starbucks:
You’re welcome. But…it would be nice if you expressed your appreciation by giving me a coupon for a FREE cup of coffee. Don’t get me wrong. I love Starbucks. And I’m already a fan. But, in my humble opinion, if they want me to become a RAVING FAN, they need to apply the “plus one” attitude. Give me MORE than a simple “thank you”.
What do you think? Did Starbucks miss the mark here?

Since I’ve been talking about women in business, I thought I’d take this opportunity to mention two talented businesswomen, Charlene Bert and Susan Krivelow. They are veteran broadcast journalists with twenty years of experience in the video business, having worked in major market television newsrooms as well as national news syndication on-air and online. They have partnered together to bring us a “different type of site–for women, by women”, GalTime. They are gathering a network of leading experts in various fields and also women online to bring us information that women need on health, money, career, beauty/fashion, social networking, cooking and all kinds of do-it-yourself topics. Since I’m a DIYer myself, I am excited to hear they are adding the DIY topics as a valuable component.
The great news about this site is that it’s bringing together so many women from all walks of life to become a part of this huge network. And these two ladies are breaking down walls by partnering with women in so many different areas of expertise. Here’s a clip from their “temporary” site:
We believe the GalTime.com community itself has a lot to offer. You’ll get your chance to chat, share your ideas and weigh in on the topics of the day. It’s an empowering community, both for visitors/members and contributors. There’s no better time for women to help each other out!
We’ll be announcing our partners and how to become a member soon …so STAY TUNED…Giveaways? OF COURSE!
You can find them on Twitter (@galtime). Follow their tweets and keep abreast of the latest announcements re: the site launch and partners. As a “power mom” myself I am extremely excited about this new online meeting place and avenue for much needed information.
