Remember the first time you sent an email? At first email was fun, new, exciting. “I’ll EMAIL it to you”, we said to one another, wanting to be efficient and up to the moment. We understood technology. We got it. We had email. It was fast, free and let us stay in touch with friends and family […]

Internet Marketing: Are You Pushing Or Pulling?

Internet marketing can be confusing to say the least! Nothing we do in our real lives prepares us to work online, and terms like “autoresponder” or “solo ad” or “CPM”  are foreign at best.

The Lesson Of The Conditioner Bottle

The other day I was in the shower enjoying warm water flowing directly from heater and faced a situation we all face at some point. My bottle of conditioner was almost empty and I needed to use the last bit of what remained. So I did what many of us have done – I turned […]

We meet many people in the course of our careers. Some we will get to know casually while others will become close friends and trusted allies.

Staying Current without Losing Your Mind

We all deal with information overload. The sources of information, much of it necessary to our jobs, seem endless. Magazines, journals, memos, email, web sites and more, combined with endless meetings, provide us with more data than any person can handle. To cope, we must possess skills that allow us to process huge amounts of data […]

Unleash Your Creativity

We live in a hectic time.

Ours is an instant gratification society. We want it now. Yet, as we reflect on the best things in our lives, we often find the truly important things (like relationships, love and peace) took time to develop.

The ‘always on’ nature of the tools we use in business can all too easily trap us into believing that we can function as machines too.

Why Do Great Ideas Fail To Make Money?

Does this sound familiar? You have a great idea – one that you think will really succeed and help you achieve your goals. You tell your spouse or friend about your great idea. You make some notes about your great idea. You even check out what it will take to do the idea. But then life gets […]
