Selling is being equated more and more to telling a good story therefore this article and advice from two wildly successful story tellers in our society is worth the read.

Do you use PayPal? If so, it may serve you well to read this.
After the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau filed a complaint against PayPal today, the company quickly agreed to refund $15 million to customers it ripped off over the past few years.

A virtual library for everyone out there!
Jorge Luis Borges’s 1941 tale about a library containing every possible combination of letters – every work that could ever be written – has come to life online. And its creator is no closer to finding anything new that makes sense

I would speculate that the net increase's for the 90% versus for the 1% are not equal with the 1% accumulating much more wealth in this time period.
The rise and fall and rise again of the top 1 percent in one amazing chart.

Really sad but one should know if they are donating if their money is being spent as they wish and expected.
Four cancer charities allegedly used more than $187 million in donations to buy cars, luxury cruises, concert tickets and even dating memberships.

The USA would do well to follow the lead of Belgium and the European Union in restricting these sites from total data collection of our information to leverage in whatever way they see fit.
Belgium's Privacy Commission thinks that "Facebook tramples on European and Belgian privacy laws," and said it would take legal action if its latest reco

Read this statistic for an eye opener about just how much of the Internet you are not seeing: "Ninety-six percent of the Internet isn't accessible through standard search engines. Most of it's useless but it's where you go to find anything and everything: child porn, Bitcoin laundry, narcotics, hackers for hire ..." Fortunately it is an Internet that most of us don't care about. BUT - it is also full of an element that means to do you harm via electronic means or otherwise.
There's much more to the Internet than what you can stumble upon with Google. Hidden sites can market drugs and weapons illegally, but they also provide anonymity for political dissidents.

I am not sure what bothers me more, that I've read quite a few of the books on his list or I haven't heard about quite a few of the books on his list!
Image licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons Take a survey of a hundred writers from the mid- to late-twentieth century about the books that influenced them most and you’re bound to find plenty of Henry Miller tucked in with the Victorians, the Russians, and the Beats.

Driven to constantly grow in all areas, succeed at my job with integrity and solid ethics while contributing to the greater good for all.
Introduction
I am in the business and IT consulting industry  in the role of selling Oracle's Advanced Customer Services to our Strategic Accounts. I am very technology literate not only from working in the industry but from the first time I got a 386 computer and taking it apart to find out what made it work and tweaking it to improve it functionality going forward.

I have been a voracious reader ever since I can remember so see this interest in computers as an extension of data and information access and how to leverage the same to everyone's best interests.
