"Come Build YOUR Brand!"
Follow the logic: If we keep thinking it's OK to kill off the weak then, when the weak have been successfully killed off, who will the NEW WEAK be???? Those currently calling themselves "The Strong". So, if the current strong don't want to be the next "weak", they'll join in helping to protect the current "weak." #KeepSTRONG #HelpTheWeakContinue
Though I could blame none of my high school teachers for thinking I wasn't fully alert, fully present, or fully attentive as an easily distractible, highly sensitive, African American teenager at that freshly integrated Southern school, I'd like to point out that I learned lifelong lessons and met many meaningful people at Dreher High School during 1966-1969... For now, I'll leave the meaningful people out but, these 5 are among the lifelong lessons still satisfying my soul in 2013:It was at Dreher that I was first introduced to "The Elements of Style" by William Strunk, Jr. (...freeing me to write as I wish...)It was at Dreher that I was first introduced to "Self Reliance" by Ralph Waldo Emerson (...freeing me to think and to be able to more safely resolve life's challenges from within my own mind...)It was at Dreher that I was first introduced to classical saxophone literature and the utterly unforgettable saxophonist, Sigurd Rascher, the incredible guitarist Jimi Hendrix, and the…Continue
If content IS King, there's something greater to which the King must bow to and listen to: The Audience.Content, in and of itself, is a dead, lifeless thing ... much of which is sitting in lonely, isolated, lifeless blogs on the Web because there's no audience to lift the content to liveliness...Writing great content in the Sahara, disconnected from networks of people will prove to mean nothing but a lone wolf's exercise in futility ...If you're going to give a meaningful title to anything and if the King is to be declared the Top Ruler, the crowd, the group, the audience is the only thing worthy of being called the REAL King.If content were King, there'd be no starving writers...Continue
Where I stand on *my* usage of the term "branding" is here: branding is a means of standing out among SIMILAR things.If you don't need to stand out among things similar to you, don't brand.If you DO need to stand out among things similar to you, BRAND...I don't see "branding" as a negative means by any means ... You use branding with each and every sentence you write and with each and every word you speak. (Just check out some of the short expressions which have recently gotten famous people in BIG trouble for just saying one or two things the wrong way. They branded themselves and their careers by what they said. (They got themselves in "hot" water...))Bad interpretations can make any word "bad" in the minds of those who want it to mean something bad.Those who seek to overly-restrict the term "branding" to its former definition are, again, invited to tell us how they handle the word "water" now that we've been introduced to the abusive concept of "water-boarding" and the dangers of…Continue
VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM, @TheNextWeb - YOU have a GREAT brand. R U SURE you want your brand associated with THIS???: http://ning.it/19NMAKS"Should I Remove It" has PROVEN itself to be an EXCEEDINGLY DANGEROUS SOFTWARE PRODUCT TO DOWNLOAD.I'd be more than happy to discuss the serious challenges it's caused me since downloading it.I downloaded it based upon the review of it on your site.Though I've painstakingly removed most of the programs and junk files it SECRETLY downloaded to my computer, days later, it's STILL wreaking havoc on my machine.You may wish to have your staff CHECK this software out more carefully and consider WARNING YOUR READERS AGAINST USING IT.As strongly as possible, I'd like to encourage you to consider taking down that article on behalf of your readers who TRUST YOUR REVIEWS...+Vincent WrightContinue
My Father (10.15)My father died so long ago that, in some respects, my relationship with him seems almost "fictional".And, true, because my father died on the 3rd anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination on 11.22.1966, his death, too, could seem almost as a piece of "history" ... capable of being fictionalized by those who adored him.But, years ago, I reasoned that the parent|child relationship is not limited to just a few decades but, rather, is an eternal matter.Indeed, though it was 47 years ago, the pain of hearing about his death on that odd, odd, odd, odd morning as I was getting dressed to leave to go to my high school class is as freshly alive in me as if it'd just happened a few weeks ago.As odd as it may be for you to process intellectually, though the information that morning was disorienting, angering, and painful, the pain the teenaged Vincent experienced on that super-odd morning, is HELPFUL to the middle aged Vincent in REMEMBERING and STILL APPRECIATING…Continue
The social brain and its superpowers:Matthew Lieberman, Ph.D.at TEDxStLouisFirst seen on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/social_brains/status/389041473846398976 Published on Oct 7, 2013Neuroscientist Matthew Lieberman explains that through his studies he's learned that our kryptonite is ignoring the importance of our social superpowers and by building on our social intuition, we can make ourselves smarter, happier, and more productive. In this TEDx Talk, Lieberman explores groundbreaking research in social neuroscience that reveals that our need to connect with other people is even more fundamental than our need for food or shelter and that the social pain and pleasure we experience has just as much impact…Continue

Contrary to what many well-known social media professionals may teach, professional networking cannot be satisfied by thinking in terms of Quality versus Quantity.
Vincent Wright maintains that to get the maximum out of your professional networking, you need to master 3 elements superior to QvQ:

Linkedin: The Early Years
Here's my recommendation regarding the striking fast food workers:
$10.00 per hour + TIPS (Commission EARNED for QUALITY customer services.)
Let the marketplace combine with the workers' attitudes and abilities determine whether they'll make just $10.00 per hour or $15.00 per hour or $20.00+ per hour.)
(I'm aware that the above would take a fairly monumental sea change in the industry but, if…Continue
As an adult, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday not just because of the abundance of good food and great football games but, rather, because of the limitless value contained in the word "Thanks".
For that reason, I'm happy to revisit the "T.H.A.N.K.S.G.I.V.I.N.G." acronym I created specifically to memorialize my appreciation of the business value I've derived from social media.*
Top Twelve Reasons I'm Giving Thanks for Virtual Networking on…Continue
