What Matters Now

December 16, 2009

Seth Godin released a free e-book titled What Matters Now. It is a collection of thoughts from many folks. Rich and I didn't get tagged to submit, but I'm following Seth's advice to add my thoughts here.

Seth begins by writing:

Whitacre Running GM

June 9, 2009

Former SBC chief Ed Whitacre is going to be the next Chairman of GM. Huh? According to Bloomberg, Whitacre is doing his patriotic duty and loves the challenge. Rich Tehrani thinks that Whitacre was a strategist.

YouTube, Goodspeed and Brogan

March 31, 2009

So social media expert, Chris Brogan, blogs about Michael Goodspeed being wronged by YouTube. Since Google owns YouTube, this is the beginning of Google becomes the Evil Empire.  I've been watching this happen for a while. When GrandCentral was upgrading to Googel Voice in waves it was a bitchfest on Twitter because people had to wait. *gasp*. They had to wait like 10 days to get access to an upgrade to a free service.

You can follow the drive by following Scott on Twitter. If you donate $120, Scott will give you a website review. (I've seen many of your sites, take advantage of this deal!

Biz Travel Trends Are Annoying

March 9, 2009

USA Today has the latest business travel trends. While it looks like prices are dropping, in fact, it's only the base airfare ticket price that is dropping. With all ancillary fees airlines add, you are likely paying more for your ticket - and according to what I hear at airports, your final ticket price is unknown until you get home and add it all up.

Airlines are cutting schedules which means we are back to bumping on flights (as I saw in Vegas). Also, if you get bumped or miss a flight, see you tomorrow.

Two Big Problems in DC

March 4, 2009

Arnold Schwarzenegger was on ABC's Sunday morning news with George. he had the best analogy I have heard:

I vote for you reading Seth's best blog posts.  And my own thoughts for businesses in 2009 is: Differentiate and Sell. Not be everything to everyone. Be Unique and actually sell services. Especially in 2009, although I have elected not to participate in the recession at all.

Tampa Bay Connections

December 12, 2008

This has been a busy networking week. Business Buddies holiday party, AMA Tampa Bay Luncheon, and the Tampa Bay CEO Awards dinner last night. The emcee for the event, Brent Britton, is an interesting guy, a lawyer from MIT in Tampa via Silcon Valley. Another person of interest was a finalist for a CEO Award.

  1. Stop watching / reading the news. It's going to be more of the same news for a while and listening to it and reading it are not going to help you. It will only increase your anxiety.
