Don’t Have a Facebook Business Page? Time to Suck It Up and Create One Today

When I went in to kiss her goodnight the other night and found my daughter under the covers “friending” Justin Bieber I knew we had a problem. Yeah, she’s addicted, as are most of her friends. My college roommate, my ex , and several friends who claim they are not, are for sure. I’m sorry, but anyone posting 3 or more posts per day on Facebook is officially a Facebook addict and needs to just fess up and either stop living in denial and go with it or join FBA (Facebook Anonymous).

Lost Computer: Good Times

It had been a blissful two weeks. I had just gotten back from what I call vacation, and other’s call Suzen’s Insanity> 2 weeks of a “my lake house for your apartment “house swap in August.

And why, exactly won’t they be interested in pocketing your grandmothers’ good silver? Although I invited a chosen few down, most just shook their heads and muttered a faint “thanks but no thanks”.

Yes, that sad Tuesday morning I’d loudly and with great flourish, fallen, twisted my ankle and landed squarely on my bum after rolling- yes rolling-onto the lady next to me and knocking her off of her step as well. She wasn’t amused. That was the end for me, and I’d made a big point of making that known to anyone who would dare to suggest I get back on the horse. I was a buffoon, had 2 left feet, wasn’t quick enough, etc. etc. really any excuse that served me that day to avoid ever trying step again. And anyway, wasn’t “step” so ‘80’s’ anyway? [Read more...]

Prioritize To Monetize, or: Beware the Time Suck

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Time is money.” As small business owners, you all know that too well. Every aspect of running a business takes time; from the creative thinking process of your ideas to the practical uses that come from those ideas. Most of the time, you play many different roles, from the accountant to the account representative, to your very own coffee fetcher. Have you ever sat back and contemplated, “How much is my time worth?” If so, here are a couple of marketing strategies to consider when organizing your time:
