This post is #365 since January 1st 2013. Thanks to all my readers. Thanks to all my guest posters. Tomorrow I am releasing two new books.

The old way… write it all down and transfer to a word doc, and then convert to a pdf and share with your audience. The new way… write it down on a white board and take a picture of it. That lets your meeting partners see what everyone shared without interpretation. It’s faster, and more […]
When giving a gift to friends, clients or vendors… have fun with it. Make it personal, and targeted. Never give your significant other a vacuum or a trash can. Think about that when you are posting on social media. Not everyone is into chocolate, or soaps or stuffed animals. Keep the likes and wants of […]
I have said it before, “If your want to piss off 50% of your audience, talk about politics or religion.” You may feel or believe you are right, but that does not give you the right to tell others what to believe.

Love them or hate them, you can’t choose your family. Sometimes you have to treat networking the same way. You don’t have to like everyone and everyone does not have to like you. Do your best to get along and function as a unit! Give it your best and do all that you can do […]

Sometimes I am in the band and sometimes I am in the audience. Either way I appreciate both perspectives. It’s a rare opportunity to wear two sets of shoes… sometimes both at the same time. Perspective is a conditional condition… appreciate both sides!
It never surprises me that people find the holidays as a main (and only) time to give thanks and give back. What happens to that in February, June or October? Add a appointment to your calendar this year every month or every other month to be generous. The needs of people doesn’t celebrate a holiday!
