Daily Prompt: All about the C-Sweet

Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.

First, publicly and privately held for-profit corporations confer corporate titles or business titles on company officials as a means of identifying their function in the organization. The highest-level executives are usually called “C-level” or part of the “C-suite,” referring to the 3-letter initials starting with “C” and ending with “O” (for “Chief __________ Officer”); the traditional officers are Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Operations Officer (COO), and Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Retrieved from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_title

How does this relate to me?  Well, first of all one of the various nicknames I’ve been called through the years is “C” or “Cee” – that’s it, plain old “C” because my name starts with the letter C and another nickname is “CJ” whatever works for you, some people call me C.

Further, to some I am “Sweet” – you can take that literally or you may prefer to assume I mean it tongue in cheek – again, whatever works for you.   Now with an MBA in Finance, and experience in the corporate world, I might have had my sights set on one day being part of the C-suite; and for a time I was but one day a student of mine referred to me as “C-Sweet” and I realized it was the perfect nom de plume for me and my blog as I (sweetly) write about my experiences in the business world for one, and in the world at large.

I hope this makes a bit of sense to you and you now understand how I came to call myselt “The C-Sweet”

      1. haha exactly!
        I honestly could not think of where it could come from.

        I’m playing this game with myself where I try to guess where the blog title came from before reading the Daily Prompt post. Haha failing miserably so far.
