I am receiving emails that customers have written a new review for some of our businesses. When I click the "review and respond" button in the email, the reviews are not listed on the pages. I even did an organic search for the business to see if the reviews were posted and they are not. Has anyone else noticed this? #reviews

Very funny article about the perils of believing everything that is printed on #Infograpghics  
If Mark Twain were around in the digital age, I have no doubt he'd say, "There are lies, damn lies, and then infographics." Infographics seem to be everywhere now. What started off as perhaps a uni

Headline of the day calling out the enagement buzzword.
88% of online shoppers would purchase directly from a brand if the option was available, and only 18% said they were satisfied with their brand shopping experiences.

Law enforcement is on scene at Bridgewater Plaza in Moneta. The incident involves a WDBJ7 crew. We don't have any additional details.

On Friday, Mother Jones shared a cartoon by the Southern Poverty Law Center that pretty much sums up this incredible week (below). Could it get any better? Yes. Some genius knew exactly what that comic strip looked like and created the GIF shown above.

"It's unreasonable to expect extraordinary work from someone who isn't trusted to create it." ~ Seth Godin 
When I write about linchpins and people on a mission, I often hear from bosses who ask a variant of, "Any idea how I can find people like that for my business?" It's unreasonable to expect extraordinary work from someone...

Q's is my favorite local BBQ place. My favorite dishes are the beef brisket and ribs. They have recently added new menu items including burgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken. Tonight's experience ordering fried chicken is the reason I'm only rating three stars. I asked prior to ordering if they had any chicken ready and was told yes. 25 minutes later it arrived at the table. That's a bit long in my opinion for a dish that was "ready". Q's normal speedy service is why I enjoy coming here. I'll be back, just not for fried chicken.

Great family burger place. Stick to ordering burgers which is what they do best. Other menu items are not as good. Have always had excellent service.

These guys can do it all. From a simple rip or tear, or cigarette burn to a complete interior restoration on classic cars. They have helped me install complete interior packages and even installed a brand new convertible top on some classic cars that I restored. I hihjly recommend them.
