I occasionally find an article or resource that’s so helpful I wish I’d written it. When I do, I pass it along to you. Twenty Marketing Maxims is probably the best summary of business development best practices that I’ve ever seen. As I wrote when I tweeted the resource: Print...
There’s an old maxim that 50% of marketing efforts are a complete waste of time. The problem is, as the punchline holds, that nobody knows which efforts fall into the 50% that succeed. That’s amusing only if it’s untrue. I’m quick to climb up on a soapbox and start to rant...

The Whats, Whos, Hows, & Whys of Shareworthy Customer Service By Tim Miles Sometime last year, I began receiving emails from a blog titled The Daily Blur, written by Tim Miles. I have no idea why I got on the list (though I’m sure I subscribed) but I found value in almost every email, so...
Quiz: What’s the task that’s on your list over and over, daily or weekly, that makes you groan every time you think about it? Maybe it’s keeping your time, filing expense reports, updating your LinkedIn contacts, or reviewing and paying invoices. Pick the one that nags at you...
I’m back in the office this week between two business trips. Last year, I decided to cut back on travel, and I’m now away less than a week each quarter – not counting my annual 3-week vacation. Being in the office more than out has highlighted the importance of staying on task in...
