Who is this chick called Susan Avello?

cropped 3Welcome to my updated blog. I am so excited to have you stop by.

A little about me?

I am a wife, mother of a 24 year old daughter, mama of two dogs, and author of four books. I am an avid foodie and all around geek! I dig Social Media and get a kick out of helping job seekers, Human Resource and Recruiters form their digital footprint and social media strategy. I in no way claim to be a “Guru” “Maven” or “Master” of anything, accept perhaps eating! I love to laugh and try not to take life too seriously, which keeps me off meds.

I know I’m all over the place when it comes to writing – anywhere from douchebags and asshats to what happens in the workplace, living in a digital world, often discussing technology and a lot of bullshit. Take it or leave it, it’s what I do.

What pays my bills is that I’m afforded the opportunity to work from home in my pj’s most of the time, lending my expertise and knowledge to small to mid size businesses in the area a social media management and training, digital footprint creation, technical writing and so on.

Oh, and I do love a little Bears football come Fall!

I’m only an email away > susan.avello@yahoo.com

  1. Crazy story Susan.

    I worked at a company in my early twenties where I had a similar experience. It was a small company owned by a woman who had been married for over 20 years before having her first child. Unfortunately for her, she was in her late 40’s and the hormonal imbalance her pregnancy caused made her an unreasonable person to be around, specifically for the men in the office. The company was located in a renovated historical home which was lovely, but it was tight quarters and voices carried regardless of how hard we all tired to speak using our “inside voices.” Here’s the crazy part, every day the owner would take one of the men into her corner office and scream at them on the top of her lungs, throw objects at them and was known to even physically strike them with a closed fist. This woman absolutely scared the daylights out of me. When I saw the male du jour of her abuse leave her office after her tirade, they looked pale, confused and beaten down. Eventually, she came to the realization that she needed to close her business because she just couldn’t manage her emotions and work-life balance at the same time.

    Thank goodness we have labor laws in place today to protect employees.

    • OMG Cyndy, that is crazy. Thank goodness is right, for labor laws. That sounds horrendous, especially for those poor men in the office (smile). Thanks for sharing. Good to know I was not the only one that has experienced that!
