I’ve written on this subject some before, but I believe it deserves another touch because it represents a major shift in the mindset of consumers.  When I first started getting involved with social media, one of the most prevalent questions was, “How much should I share about my personal life?”  This question still lingers nearly […]

Twitter Can Be The Opposite of FarmVille

I’ve got some friends who seem to be playing FarmVille way too much.  Their facebook wall is full of FarmVille announcements.  Their photo album full of Farmville screenshots.  Wayyyyy too much FarmVille.  If you love farmville, feel free to skip this. We probably all have one or more friends who compromise their professional reputation to the […]

Earlier this week I wrote a post asserting that the future of twitter is mobile. Using twitter on a mobile device is infinitely more valuable to a small to medium sized business owner, an entrepreneur or a solopreneur.

I guess it’s to be expected as more and more people plug into social media, but I’m surprised to see people using social media to shoot themselves in the foot on an almost daily basis.  Most of these mistakes are due to inexperience or ignorance, but laziness can also be a factor.  I’m not one […]

Anytime I write or talk about twitter, inevitably I get asked how I’m making out with it.  It’s apparent that a lot of people are willing to try the service, but not clear on the best way to use it.  Often I talk to frustrated people who have given up using twitter after spending a […]

It is amazing to me that as a society we’re always looking for the easy way out of our problems/challenges.  I’m not sure if this behavior is actually human nature, or just the result of living during a time of rapid technological advancement.  Actually this issue goes beyond just looking for an easier way.  Many […]

Making A Measurable Difference

Brandon Mendelson

Several months ago I was having a conversation with Brandon Mendelson of SoapBoxIncluded. I’m a fan of Brandon’s work and I’ve learned a lot by watching him organize his charitable efforts (his national Check Early Check Often Breast Cancer Awareness Tour). And I’ve really been paying attention to how he is navigating the transition from […]
