Posture and Aging

I may be reveling my age, or that I watched to much TV as a kid, but I remember a commercial for hand lotion or dishwashing soap, that compared 2 sets of hands. The commercial asked the viewer to guess which hands were the older, trying to make the point that the product kept your skin looking young. Well certainly looking at someone’s hands is one way to guess their age, but I use a more obvious one – posture and movement. Think about the last time you noticed someone “walking like an old man”, or perhaps you thought that of your self, momentarily straightening your posture and then quickly falling back into the same bad habits. Wii Fit from Nintendo uses posture and balance to help determine your “age”. Click here for the full article.

Back in the Caveman Days

Back in the caveman days, people sat around the fire (who got credit for harnessing that?) and chewed the fat (literally and figuratively). They got to know each other and built relationships based on shared interests and mutual needs. Building relationships, making connections, and asking for help are important aspects of keeping a business strong and competitive. We don't have to sit around a fire to accomplish those things, but we absolutely DO need a strategy for leveraging our existing sphere of influence to connect with the right people. Marketing guru Seth Godin calls this group of "the right people" your Tribe. If you are a Facebook enthusiast, you call the right people your Friends. For Linkedin users, your right people plus their right people comprise your Connections. And if you have discovered Twitter, you are Following and being Followed. Click here for the full article.

Jodie Wilson Twitter Client Pooped on Me!

One fine day I was enjoying myself, surfing the net, sending tweets (twitter messages) and building my friends and followers lists. As a result, I began to receive e-mails from some of the other twitter users. The emails had interesting and provocative topics about increasing search engine optimization (SEO) and building your business on the web. Because, I own a website and do most of my research from my computer, I started reading some of the advertisements that were sent to me. The problem was the emails were outside of the safe confines of Twitter, and they were from sources I was not familiar with. ( I should have heeded the warning I give to my grandchildren, “Stranger / Danger!”) I went to read more about a product and it attached keyword launch advertisements to my computer. Suddenly, PLOP right on my computer, I had contracted not the swine flu but a spyware/adware virus. Click here for the full article.
