Words, Handshakes, Fists, and Punches

Humans have been known to beg just to hear the right word from the right person.


The right word is invaluable to us - personally, professionally, financially.


The right word can make the world…

A Fighting Spirit (or Where's The Quality Care In Rushing The Dying Into Eternity?)

The social worker said to me "It would be nice if she could just let go."

She said this - with the best of intentions - in reference to my mother who has been struggling with multiple myeloma since being diagnosed with it eight years ago.

Ordinarily, this statement would not have caught my attention except that I had recently cautioned a friend about her penchant to rush through traffic.

We rush, we rush, we rush!…

Ning has turned into an awful thing

After nearly 11 years of loving the @Ning platform, all I can say today is this: Ning has turned into an awful thing...

(I used to love it and used to have inordinate faith in Ning's infrastructure because it was founded by the formerly inestimable Marc Andreessen (@pmarca) and Gina Bianchini @ginab but, Ning's been dramatically underperforming since they *mistakenly* sold it to @Glam...)

Invisible Messengers (or A Medicine Called Forgiveness)

The two year long battle between my oldest brother and me ended just in time for us to spend the last six months of his life as friends - and in time for me to learn a rather startling lesson from him.

I suppose siblings need to fight among themselves in order to gain strength and adequate skills to survive in the external world, much as bear cubs need to fight among themselves to prepare them for their world.

But I'm happy that my brother and I got…

You can't see the picture if you are inside the frame

On the way to the Veterinarian’s for an emergency run, we passed a church whose billboard stated “You can’t see the picture, if you are inside the frame.” The statement clearly applies to both our organizations and the dichotomy that exists in almost every workplace on the face of this globe we call earth.

Taiichi Ohno, the creator of the Toyota Production System, charged his managers with standing in a circle and observing the organization in real time. If we take Ohno’s charge in to…

Making Warm Leads Warmer

I have always felt there are 3 parts to the buying cycle, awareness, evaluation and decision.

Now I will not say that telesales or teleprospecting can’t make cool leads warm but now with the advent of Social Media Marketing a you don’t have to hand off a bunch of icy cold sales leads to the telemarketing staff. I know it’s getting colder outside but please now you can now refine them to be (at least) luke warm from the start and have a greater understanding of who…

We’ll Get You To The 20

1st and 10 at the 20. The RED zone.

I don’t care how much you push, how much you need that sale. Sometimes it is just not going to happen. Not just that but they don’t even want to talk to you.

Sorry Charlie. Prospects don’t want to talk to a salesperson until they are somewhere 80% down the sales process. By then solutions and specifications on any projects and needs are already set. If you can attain the status as a member of their "team" in…

There Will NOT be a Recession . . .

. .  So stop working like there will be and get out there while your competition hunkers down waiting.


Waiting for what?

Recession or not people need to buy things so why not you?

Recessions are personal. Make sure you are not having a recession and your competition is.


But honestly I don’t think there will be a recession.

Really I don’t. Why?


1st look at the job market. With unemployment standing at 3.7% this is…
