The Internet Can Do More Than You Think

Prepare Yourself For A Paradigm Shift

The old idea of Internet Marketing was some promotional pages, a newsletter, and a virtual store. But, as we get deeper into the Information Age, we need to re-think our relationship to the Internet. It may be much more than you thought it was.

A promotional page on the Internet does give your practice some exposure. It can be helpful in providing some basic, static information about you and your practice.

Poems Pertinent To Leaving Linkedin: "Limbo Losses" from How to Survive the Loss of a Love

No, I wasn't Linkedin's lover - and Linkedin wasn't mine. But, when someone asked me whether I'd started having withdrawal symptoms from not going to for the past couple of days, it reminded me of this wonderful little book called "How To Survive The Loss Of A Love" (by Peter McWilliams, Harold H. Bloomfield, and Melba Colgrove

Here's an excerpt to see if you can relate:

Shifting Factors, Shifting Focus

There are many factors which can affect the way we choose to solve problems.

There are many factors which contribute to how we use our time and the things we choose to pursue with our time.

There are many factors which affect our plans - no matter how carefully constructed the plans are.

And, of course, there are many factors which…

Why Would Linkedin Take Down A Motivational Networking Group?

From "Why Keep Strong!"

I open this new iteration of my blog with this simple, straightforward question: "Why would Linkedin Corporation take down a motivational networking group?"

The group was called "Keep STRONG!"

To help you understand the character of the group which Linkedin suspended, here is its original description:

"It is NOT your job to help those who seek to drag you down, to weaken you.… Continue

Another L.I.O.N.: Linkedin’s Ignorance Of Networking

Can you do a brief mental experiment with me, please?

Take just a moment on this: Try to visualize going through the course of your networking year WITHOUT having to encourage someone in your network or without someone in your network having to encourage you.

Just imagine that for a moment. Just imagine a networking year without the concept of encouragement entering into it.

If you have a large network of, let’s say, 500+ people, I think it would be virtually… Continue

Problems with LinkedIn search capabilities

Today I called and cancelled my LinkedIn Business Professional membership and asked for a refund. It was promptly transacted and the charge was refunded to my credit card.

As a loyal fan and advocate of LinkedIn, I'm so frustrated I can barely stand it. I use LI as a tool to find excellent candidates and network with a host of wonderful people. My network has grown quickly over the last few months and I'm up to right around 8,500 first level connections. I also belong to a ridiculous… Continue

Can't Rename Facebook Group So, How Do I Delete A Facebook Group ?

Facebook doesn't permit you to rename a group so, if your mission for a group is no longer viable, groups can't be renamed.

For example, if you have a Facebook group called "Celebrating2007", that group can't be renamed Celebrating2008, Celebrating2009, Celebrating2010, etc.

Thus, if you are no longer celebrating 2007, the group dedicated to that purpose gets "frozen in time". [wink, wink]

So, how does a Facebook group creator delete the group called… Continue

If There Is A War For Talent, Why Is It So Hard For You To Find A Job?

In my industry of choice, the recruitment industry, there is the long standing mantra of "a war for talent". As a Recruiter, I know all too well how fierce it is to find clients, find candidates, and to bring them together in a timely fashion in order to get paid for doing so. I'm also aware that the US Economy lost more than 80,000 jobs in the month of March 2008, alone. But, here's my question: "If there is a war for talent, why is… Continue

My Favorite Thing About "The Emergence Of The Relationship Economy"

When my friend, Margaret Orem, sent me a copy of "The Emergence Of The Relationship Economy", I was up to my proverbial eyeballs with projects, tasks, business and personal relationships. Thus, though I eagerly wanted to read the book co-authored by my friend, Margaret, I could not read the full book all in one sitting - which is what I prefer to do. I feel that when a friend sends me a book, I should crank up the coffee pot and…
