DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?
Laurinda Bellinger (LB): This is my personal blog where I share from my past and present life experiences. I discuss all the mistakes I made and lessons learned as a black woman in Corporate America. I blog about Leadership, social media, productivity, and anything else I believe helps people lead a better life. It’s is my desire to see people “re-engineer” their thoughts and become more tomorrow than they are today.
DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Laurinda On Leadership?
LB: Leadership is a passion of mine. Working on my leadership skills has help navigate through all the politics that a black woman encounters Corporate America. I’m an engineer by trade. I learned some fierce lessons about leading men when I first entered Corporate America in my twenties. I couldn’t lead myself let alone anyone else. This is a topic that I speak on regularly. So when I decided to start a blog to help my speaking career, it was a natural choice topic.
