My Inner Marvin May 7, 2009

Marvin was bad-ass.  Marvin was my volleyball buddy years ago.  Marvin never let a ball drop.  Marvin dared the other team to serve their hardest serve.  Marvin gave them the “try-again” look when an amazing dig happened on a hit that was supposed to lead to a point.  Marvin was the perfect player, a coach’s dream.  Marvin knew how to get the job done – and did it well.

Marvin was my alter ego when I played volleyball 12 months out of the year up through college & I passed his wisdom onto the girls that I coached after college, then…no more Marvin.

What does Marvin say/do now?….a *few* years later….

Marvin’s ego is a bit more in check now.  🙂  Marvin’s still a buddy, but knows that there is a need to open up & embrace truth, reality, perception, transparency & messaging that happens w/in the depths of a company.  Yes, there are rules, guidelines, policies…but this is the time, this is the place for everyone’s inner Marvin to come out.  Look out friends, my Marvin is back.  

Here is a great quote that just screams for a place here:

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.

    Your post reminds me how we evolve as we age. The inner Marvin is important for all ages of women…not just the young ones. My “Helga” still serves me well after all these years!
