I’ve been thinking about my facebook page a lot lately.  You see I have over 100 “fans” of TheValuePagesGroup.com on facebook, but I have hardly any participation on my facebook page.  I know that people read, or perhaps scan the information posted there, because many times it comes up in actual conversations with my connections.

Depending on how detailed and ambitious your goals are, you might eventually come to the realization that you just can’t accomplish them all by yourself.  I recently came to that realization with my TVPG Radio project.

A short shallow answer can feel like a snub.  Have you ever been blown off by a one word answer?  Chances are you asked the wrong question.  Believe it or not there’s a formula for asking questions and if you don’t get it right you will receive an answer that probably won’t be helpful. It […]

Wallflower

When it’s time to network, do you become a wallflower?  Networking events can be downright scary.  A lot of very competent professionals are intimidated by the prospect of introducing themselves and making “cold connections” with a room full of strangers.  Why is that?

Move Your Money

Back in October I wrote about my awful experience with Bank of America and urged my readers to vote with their dollars and withdraw funds from large banks that are both “Too Big To Fail” and determined to screw everyday Americans with their dishonest and distasteful greedy policies.
