U.S. Is World's Biggest Source Of Spam (Those annoying emails are coming from right here)

While many, many, MANY people still blame Nigeria for scams and spam, isolating Nigeria as the main source of spam is trying to solve spam based only upon reputation and not on fact.  Take a look at this post for Consumer Affairs:


It shows that the USA is the biggest source of spam...

Retweet: Branding A Socially Responsible Signature File

In his book "The Complete Idiot's Guide To Growing Your Business With Google", I was happy to see that our own Dave Taylor included a section on "The Importance of Signatures"  (pp 204-205).

You Have To Help Us Find Your Need...

One of the oddest things about the beautiful human mind is that it can trick us out of getting what we need. And we can come up with an endless number of reasons why we haven't addressed a need but, the troublesome thing about "needs" is that they don't go away - on their own, that is.

Recently, I've been having some terrific conversations with some of the most intelligent men and women I've ever met.

Yet, there seems to be this common thread among many of them: many…

Ning Changes Directions: "And That's a GOOD Thing!"

The online company is saying goodbye to consumers and hello to big (paying) companies.

Easiest Way To Find Your Profile Page On

Because is arranged a little bit differently than some of the other Ning groups you may belong to, finding your personal homepage can also seem to be a little bit different.  


However, across all Ning sites, the easiest way to locate your personal page is to click on your name in the uppermost right hand side of the site.  


For example, when I want to access my profile page for a status update, I…

Coaching Etiquette: (#1 Punctuality Is Etiquette (P.I.E.))

While it's not generally discussed that much in social media circles, a coaching relationship is a BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.
What that means is that both the coach and the coached have traditional business principles and practices which they must honor in order to get the most out of the coaching.
The coach AND the coached MUST consider the impact of punctuality.  While being late or missing a meeting ONCE IN AWHILE is tolerable, a recurring pattern of lateness and/or…

"Did you watch the video?" should be the first sign that professional networking WILL NOT HAPPEN.

One of my Facebook networking contacts sent me a note with a video in it suggesting that, since I share videos on Facebook, I could make money just by watching the video.
A couple of quick thoughts:
  • 1. I DO share videos on Facebook
  • 2. I DO want to make money
  • 3. I DO like receiving recommendations FROM PROFESSIONALS on how to REALLY MAKE MONEY online
What I DON'T like is having a video serve as a substitute for…

The Value Of Darkness

I'm not one with a strong appetite for people who are predominantly negative.

Unfortunately, sometimes, some people equate negativity with darkness.

However, the darkness I'm referring to in my post today is not a darkness of negativity.

Rather, it is a darkness of concentration, a darkness of meditation, a darkness of healing.
