Just showing up isn't enough

I came across the following at Persistence

"80 percent of success is just showing up" —Woody Allen

"I often think about that quotation. It may sound easy to shrug off, but not if you look a little deeper. It doesn't just mean show up for job interviews or to work for an 80% increase in success. Showing up also means ... starting.

"For instance, did you show up at the gym today? Just showing up means… Continue

H1N1 In Your Area - Are Folk Medicines Being Used?

I had some discussion with one of my contractors today who lives in southern Russia. There is quite a bit of panic in his city over the H1N1. He says that there is no vaccine and that the government is saying it is not effective in case of an epidemic. Although the reported is 3000 cases in population of 300,000 with 34 deaths, he feels it is much higher. That the government as "stopped reporting" H1N1 incidences. I asked him what he was doing - if he used any folk medicines, but he says no. He… Continue

A Great Example Of An Integrated Marketing Campaign -

Properly executing an integrated market campaign (IMC) is the most powerful business tool. When done correctly, an IMC utilizes several tools to produce a seamless marketing campaign. Although an IMC uses a variety of traditional and new tools, it must maintain the campaign's message and brand. One of the best examples is CNN.

It couldn't have been easy figuring out how to maintain interest in a 24-hour news channel. Even after creating a steady audience, how could people ever feel… Continue

Gone With The Wind -

One of my favorite shows is Mad Men on AMC. Not only am I living vicariously through Don Draper - the lead character - but they're brilliant ad-men. I also love comparing the technology from the 50's to everything we have now. We're so spoiled...I'm pretty sure most of us wouldn't get much done.

In a recent episode, the team needed to promote telegrams over phone calls, which were the main communication tool of the time. After several stiff "Old Fashioneds" and some clever zingers, a… Continue

Are Smartphones Making Life Easier? -

Several years ago, I was working in the Marketing department of a prestigious law firm. Within a few minutes I realized why there is such contempt for the men and women in law. Simultaneously, every lawyer joke crossed my mind (i.e. "What do you call 1000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? - A good start.") and I had to laugh.

One of my duties was updating and editing all the lawyers' profiles, which should have been an easy endeavor. Somehow this task, which follows a basic… Continue

When Companies Go Wild -

Recent market research has proven that consumers respond to corporate social media. Studies show consumers are willing to pay more for a product if the proceeds will benefit a social advocacy issue.

Corporations, both large and small, are joining the corporate responsibility trend. However, some talk the talk but don't walk the walk. This could create more distrust between companies and consumers, as well as putting other companies under scrutiny.

During the recent… Continue

Apple Launches Major Green Effort

After making the switch to Apple in 2007 I really could not be any more happier. The MacBook Pro is amazing and it beats the HP that I had by miles. I'm also extremely happy to be done with all the error messages that my precious Microsoft operating system bestowed upon me.

Anyways BESIDES all that I'm happy to see Apple finally making the move towards becoming more "green". Over the past couple years, Apple has been hammered by several environmental groups and in particular… Continue
