We're big Ryan superfans here, no question.

Daydreaming can lead to clarity and choice can lead to inertia. Life is full of strange seeming contradictions! Read what +Sandy McDonald has to say on the matter and if you're waiting for your "ah-ha" moment, you won't find better inspiration.
There's a science behind why taking time out from the problems and issues of your life an inspire a light bulb moment of clarity.

+Sandy McDonald, I LOVE your idioms! When you say things like: dealing with the "dross"/take up the "cudgels", you add an Aussie flavor to your writing that those of us like me and Carol Lynn find SO unique and appealing. I wish I could remember more of your Aussie words and phrases right now but ... old age prevails. The memory is the second thing to go. LOL!

Routine gets you in a rut. Ritual sustains you. If you recognize the difference you can be amazingly productive! Check out what +Nick Armstrong has to say about it and get some inspiration from his stories.
Almost every morning since Ryland was born, I’ve had breakfast with him and my wife before I start my work day and before he goes to bed, my wife and I read him stories. As another revolution around the sun is coming to a close, consider: rituals and routines are not the same thing. Routines are largely unconscious …

Are you on fleek? If you said, "WTF?" you may want to read this. Is being a millennial really a thing? And does it affect your marketing? I'm not convinced but I have opinions on the matter. The Pew Research Center put out a survey to see "how millennial are you". Considering this is not your typical Buzzfeed quiz and this is a reputable organization, you might take this with some gravity. Until you see the results. I linked to the quiz in the article so let me know what happens if you take it.
What does it mean to market to millennials? Is it a state of mind or of age? Is it leading your brand to be inauthentic? And what does

Today we talk serious GTD (Getting Things Done) - how it has changed our lives and how you can use it to help you, too. If you run around wondering how the heck to get out from behind the eight ball and have more time to do stuff - especially stuff you like - listen in and let us turn you into GTD converts, too.
Today we talk some serious GTD (Getting Things Done). It's a system taught by David Allen and it's worked wonders for us. We share the 5 steps (collect, clarify, organize, reflect, engage), some of our trip-ups and share what we've learned.

And it WILL be done. I'm a pie lover from way back.

Cakes, doughnuts, and other sweet treats are nothing I ever crave. Now "cookies", that's another story! Cookies are a staple in my pantry. It's a true emergency when we run out. :)

What do sex and business have in common? You're about to find out! But grab a pair of headphones because this one is not safe for work, folks. It's a bit about marketing the taboo and a lot about creativity, being yourself and building your business doing something you love.
Today we talk to Kim Anami, a holistic sex and relationship coach who helps people have better sex and reach their full creative potential. We discuss marketing the taboo, enjoying your work and being creative, fearless and authentic.

Success in business (and even in life) is usually dependent on the very unsexy things that so resemble work. +Annie Sisk shares some insights into how to create GOOD work habits and set yourself up for success.
There’s no secret to business success for solopreneurs and freelancers – but if there were, it would be this.

Summertime Social Media: Will You Take A Break?
socialsolutionscollective.com

Taking a break and a rest can revitalize and transform your social media marketing. Will you take a break this summer?

I've been seeing Dr. Chris Rooney for years, after a number of failed attempts to find a local dentist I could trust. I had been through several dentists in a short period of time because I was having trouble with a bonding that kept breaking. I was frustrated and eventually found Rooney & Rooney online and decided to try them out. I'm glad I did. Dr. Chris took the time to sit down with me, discuss my concerns and talk about my dental health. Since then he has worked with me on everything from bonding to whitening, Invisalign and regular cleanings and checkups. I even convinced my husband to go to the dentist after years of avoiding it and he has been going regularly ever since. Everything has always been explained to me clearly so that I know exactly what to expect. That takes the fear factor out and makes every visit calm and relaxed. I know I can rely on Dr. Chris to take the time to talk with me, address my questions and take care of whatever my needs are. He is honest, kind, understanding and excellent at what he does. The staff is also great. Everyone is friendly and caring and you never get that sense that you're "a bother" like you do at so many other businesses. They always answer the phone promptly and courteously and when you visit they make you feel comfortable and welcome. I would recommend Dr. Chris to anyone, whether you want top notch cosmetic dentistry or everyday care.
