Ever since I got my iPhone a few months back, I’ve been regularly scouring the App Store looking for an application that would translate my spoken voice, or a recording into typed text.  There have been some out there that provided partial solutions, such as converting spoken word to a text message.  The trade off […]

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 […]

I ask this question as a metaphor for business networking.  I find that people often take one of two approaches to networking. 1. They enthusiastically dive right in and start helping other people and setting up their network of referral partners. 2. They timidly stand back and evaluate what everyone else is doing to see […]

I ran across this recent gem of an article about the recession intensifying GenX discontent at work from the AP.  For those of you who are wondering what age group GenX represents, it’s us 32 to 44 year olds who are wedged between the Baby Boomers and their children. The article talks a lot about […]

Not too long ago, I put my twitter followers on notice. Between the spam and all the automated messages, it’s become harder and harder to use twitter in a meaningful way.  I wouldn’t be as opposed to automation if there were actually a person on the other side, but time after time, I’ve commented on […]

I’ve come to accept that I’m a big picture thinker.  I have a knack for seeing implications of decisions and planning two or three steps ahead.  Being a big picture thinker isn’t always a positive though. I find that I’m much more comfortable visualizing and planning than I am actually implimenting.  I’ve been guilty of […]

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 […]

I haven’t been on Twitter very much lately because I’ve been gearing up for a lot of very exciting initiatives.  As these ideas are being implemented, I’m also preparing to spend more time on Twitter, to be more available and connect more with my business community.  But in my absence, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend […]

This blog post is a very late response to Brandon Mendelson’s decision to eliminate commenting from his blog. I was going to leave a response via a comment when he announced his decision on September 28 (Yeah, I know I’m really really tardy, but I’ve been overloaded with building a new business networking and marketing […]
