Gen Plus List — June 16, 2010

Lots of goodies to share with you.

Literally…goodies from Cheerios:

I’ve obviously become very label-conscious and Cheerios has made me aware of their new campaign, focused on encouraging Americans to make heart health a priority, so they can do more of what they love.  The campaign will be using real stories from active people and you get to film yourself participating in your passion or hobby.  There are Cheerios story kits available (HD video camera, two memory cards, batteries and a Cheerios cereal sample) to a small number of potential storytellers!  If you want to bring your personal story to life and have the chance to be featured on the new Cheerios website, then head to  and request your own Cheerios Story Kit .

And get ready to swoon:

Remember these?  “I Say a Little Prayer”,  “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again”, “It’ Our Little Secret”…

Bacharach’s brilliant score is the epitome of the pop-Broadway hybrid, and this revival adds two of his best songs (“Say A Little Prayer” and “A House is Not a Home”) to nuggets such as “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again.”     – Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

From Berret-Koehler:

And I’m anxiously awaiting Wander Woman: How High- Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction (Berrett-Koehler;

new ways of finding direction, and thoughtfully choose and plan the  future — whether climbing the corporate ladder, finding satisfaction  below the glass ceiling, or setting out on their own.  For more information please visit and follow the  author on Facebook and Twitter.  I’m interested in the “setting out on their own” section!
