• Feeling Thankful for “Moments” with My Daughters

    by • on Nov 27, 14 • in Divorced Dad, Featured, Marketing, Social Media/Marketing • with No Comments

    See my Thanksgiving post series Tuesday, yesterday and here today…  As many of my loyal readers have come to know, my daughters mean everything to me. And as a divorced dad, I’ve had to fight, and give up a lot, to spend precious time with them. I think many parents want more time with their kids—I’m not the only parent out there who has to juggle, or do whatever it takes. But I’m particularly thankful that in today’s age, “spending time” with my daughters isn’t limited to in-person time. I’ve finally come to terms with

  • Feeling Thankful for the Return of Good Judgement

    See my Thanksgiving post series yesterday, today, and Thanksgiving Day…  Business owners are realizing big data isn’t all it’s cracked up to be– I’m feeling thankful that big data seems to be starting to take a back seat to sound business judgment.

There has been a lot of hype concerning big data, but I think the myths are finally starting to fall

  • Feeling Thankful for Human Interaction

    See my Thanksgiving post series today, tomorrow and Thanksgiving Day… Humans have become adept at automating everything, and we’re rapidly replacing human effort with mechanization and/or computerization. We have found a way to automate more and more tasks in our factories, schools, medicine, even communication! While this is often a good thing, we’re also coming to terms with the fact that we can’t (and shouldn’t) automate every aspect of our lives. Some of us have found out the hard way that just because you can automate a process, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should. And that’s

  • Events, Traveling and Relationships

    by • on Nov 24, 14 • in Featured, Marketing, Social Media/Marketing • with No Comments

    The beauty of events and traveling is the ability to take relationships developed digitally to a face-to-face encounter that cements the connection. Most think this does not scale, but it does because when you make this a regular part of your travels, always reaching out and creating “moments,” others participate vicariously and feel a part of those meetings when you share them socially. Whether you’re trying to build influence, looking for influential people to engage, or simply making friends… focus on the relationship first. Share where you are, and will be traveling, so friends and

  • The One Thing You Can Do to Improve Your Business Relationships

    by • on Nov 18, 14 • in Featured, Marketing, Social Media/Marketing • with No Comments

    —– Humility is a trait each of us should try harder to adopt. To become a better leader, you need to learn how to tell people you’re sorry. I was reading an article on LinkedIn the other day, “10 Things Exceptional People Say Every Single Day,” and two thoughts struck me. First, every one of the 10 things is characterized by either humility, graciousness or gratitude.
