You Can Run But You Can’t Hide From Social Media

My wife is in a very strange quandary. She’s thinking about selling one of her products online, after going to a women’s business meeting a couple of weeks ago. Her long term hope is to make enough money from it & another product she has so that she doesn’t have to travel for work anymore.

Look at the baby lol

Her quandary is that she’s not on social media… sort of. I’ve mentioned her on this blog but rarely mentioned her name. A physician also created a LinkedIn profile for her without asking her permission, but he misspelled her name; that’s pretty funny.

Reinvention Weekend With Melinda Emerson

On October 15th my wife and I participated in what was called Reinvention Weekend, which was hosted by Melinda Emerson, also known as the Small Biz Lady. We had a nice time and a great experience, and I decided I was going to write about it like I wrote about the Blogging While Brown conference. This means I’m going to give you the good and the bad of the entire weekend in story form; you’ve been warned! 🙂

Why I Stopped Staring At Attractive Women And What It’s Got To Do With Marketing

I’d like to say that I grew up differently than a lot of other boys… but that wouldn’t necessarily be true. Sure, I was a military kid, which made a big part of my life different from the norm, but all that did was make my experiences different.

This means that when I reached the age where I thought girls were pretty, I’d stare at them like most of the other boys. That is, we’d stare until we thought someone was looking at us, and then we’d look away quickly. It was like every class had a different pretty girl in it, someone new to stare at, and I’m not going to lie, my grades probably slipped for a short period of time until I learned how to stare and still listen to what teachers were saying.

Truthfully, even though it’s rare that I do it these days, it not only can’t hurt to do some marketing, networking or outreach on LinkedIn if you’re a sole proprietor, consultant or looking to upgrade your position but it’s almost imperative to do so. No matter how much I might think it’s failing as a social media platform, truth be told there’s no other site I know of that’s still more geared towards people and business than it is.

Product Creation, Marketing, Promotion And Sales

Last night was the 50th Super Bowl where the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10. It was a mild upset because all year long Carolina had pretty much been the premiere team while Denver kind of shocked the world by beating the 2nd best team in the league thanks to their great defense. It wasn’t close to a pretty game but winning beats pretty any day.

Since my routing interest most years, including this one, was fairly minimal (I have my annual pizza bet with my friend Scott; this year I lost… heck!), it means I’m always more interested in the commercials than anything else. As usual, there were some hits and some misses; also as usual, there were a few commercials that garnered both like and dislike, depending on the person in the audience.
