The C-Sweet

I will now share with you the derivation of The C-Sweet.

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:

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. How to I begin to show my appreciation for you stopping over and following my humble blog-o-thing!?! I wish you the very best, not only this morning, but well into the future. Be inspired and please take care.


    1. Hi honey, thanks for stopping by! yes, I have it on a mug – mug was a gift from the person who coined that name for me. There’s a page on the blog with the explanation/derivation. I enjoyed reading you – birds of a feather, I think…


  2. Hello, I want to thank you for following my blog, I am enjoying looking around yours as well. I was so surprised to see your name in the list of followers because my maiden name is Christine Sweet ! I like to think of things instead of coincidences as God incidences, but thank you for following and I look forward to reading your posts as well.


  3. Neat nom-de-plume. I use one too. Thanks for explaining about the C’s.
    I’m not business oriented – found you through Scott’s photos. I think I’m going to book mark your place. I might just learn something, well something else.


      1. Thank you for your kind comments.I do have you bookmarked. I’m a little hesitant to ‘follow’ every site I like because different sites follow differently and I can only handle so much incoming as it were in my e-mail in-box. I do try to visit all who visit me – even if I don’t leave a comment every time. I hope that is enough.
        I have been thinking about creating a page that will allow others to see most of ‘my followers’ so they have more than an icon to click on when someone else leaves a comment or a ‘like’

        Some ‘followers’ that I have are really not related to my subject matter, primarily sharing poetry or other things that I like or agree with. So I have to think of how I might do this.

        I agree that learning from each other will be a wonderful experience.
