How many of you are out there right now procrastinating your next move?
It’s very high time to make the next move. Life is precious. The people you truly love are only here for a short time.
Move on it now. Move on it to better their world and yours.
Great piece sent over by @bcbcbc today from the New York Times and Ben Stein on salespeople and their craft.
Agree all around.
Sales guys rule.
We’ve always known we’re in the catbird seat.
We suffer the pain for a company in wait. We live the crush of a never-ending sales cycle that basically ends on our funeral day [...]
As I’ve ranted on a bad website ordering process by Chipotle, I wanted to give fair share to a good experience I had at an LA area store today.
The experience wasn’t really an experience but I met a general manager today that chatted me up. This guy we’ll call Jack told me he started with [...]
I saw this in a daily report I get on the goings on in the digital world. Notice that it says AT&T is looking to extend… not the other way around. Big telco needs a friend. Isn’t it fuzzy and sad? I love the fact that Apple probably has EVERY major telco on their door [...]
You’ve all seen the clip from Britain’s Got Talent 2009.
Susan Boyle shows us that talent and beauty comes from all kinds of places within your soul. I also like her number 4321. Nice countdown to a wonderful performance.
Seth tells us about a great new effort by a Minnesota businesswoman to save Main Street. Very cool.

The challenge hits us in life a lot.
Do we stand up for ourselves and fight the $15 battle? Or, do we [...]
This is the hothead post of the year.
I’m moved each time I watch this. The kids groovin’ make me think that world actually has a future beyond TARP, Al-yamama, or AIG. I would love to go in that room and hug each and every singer. Look at how into it they are. You can’t not [...]
Just a quick post.
Had a random home item that I’d been trying to hammer on craigslist for a measly $20.
No sale. No sale. No sale. My only requirement was that it couldn’t go into a landfill.
Offered it to Santiago today and his wife will now use it for food delivery to her homebound clients.
Sometimes you [...]
I ordered last night from Chipotle’s new online ordering system. We love their food. It’s always good. Simple, but good. It’s a nice respite from the usual Friday night Mexican restaurant fare. No margies though.
I ordered online by going through a simple interface that let me name each order for the appropriate person. I don’t [...]
