Productivity Mind Hacks
I have great respect for these two gentleman. +Carey Green is a wonderful host and his calm and on point interview style is refreshing and easy to watch. Avoids random chit chat without sounding scripted.

Guest +Dan Crask is more than  great friend, he has been a shepherd and mentor for my business. He's a work from home dad that has grown his business by making specific decisions about objectives and process. Turn off notifications, close the door, healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise, and strict adherence to schedules and checking tasks off the white board.

You wrote the post. It's your content. What do you do when someone uses your content in a way that is, well... slimy. 

What is one thing that ticks you off most when someone poaches your content? 

Me? I hate getting framed.
 
Build Your Marketing House With Your Own Bricks And Keep The Poachers Off Your Land!

In this episode +Carol Lynn Rivera, +Krithika Rangarajan and I talk about content ownership. I also use my friendship with +Alisa Meredith to deceive her. And by extension +Kelly Kranz. The end result is I stole the intro to their upcoming podcast Superheroes of Marketing. Maybe I played the intro on our latest podcast and maybe I didn't. You'll just have to listen to find out.

Email marketing is not dead and my content is mine! In this episode we ponder why intellectual products are not valued as much as tangible ones.

This probably wont interest most of you, but it should...

Russia, Ukraine, Hungary and the South Stream Project.

It came up in today's press conference between Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán and Putin.

What is it? It's a pipeline project that was proposed and rejected by the European parliament because it is "harmful" to the Black Sea.

This pipeline would go through the Black Sea and it would allow the transport of gas from Russia directly to Europe.

Russia would not need to send gas through Ukraine.

Notice the pipelines that are currently in place. See the pipe line from Crimea, through Odessa, and into Romania? See the big fat pipeline that is curiously inside the hopeful borders of nova russia?

How does Russia plan to get the promised gas to Hungary?

Of course there is the North Stream (Nord Stream) and the Yamal through Poland, but Russia accuses EU members of trying to push Russian gas out of the European markets.

Listen to Putin as discusses the south stream in today's press conference http://youtu.be/ykC6Oxbe11o?t=3h25m24s

What do I need to know about W-8 or W8-BEN?

We have several affiliates that we pay out using Paypal that are overseas and who could likely earn several hundred or more annually. 

A trusted colleague of mine said this “I'm not an attorney or a CPA, but I think that you can use the W-8 BEN E form (attached) for your foreign subcontractors. Again, your goal with this is to have them tell you that you do not need to withhold anything for them for US taxes.” 

If you have any knowledge or know someone to turn to, let me know. Thanks.

SEO Multi Lingual question
What is the best practice for SEO for your URL structure?

Do you keep all slug the same, or do you customize them based on language?

If the English page is mysite.com/automobile
Should the German version be mysite.com/de/automobil 
and the Chinese version be mysite.com/zh-hans/汽车 
and so on...

Thoughts?

Good find +Denver Prophit Jr. and on that topic, if the pages in question (for example /automobile and  /de/automobil) have custom translations and unique URL, is it consider duplicate content and should you rel=canonical back to say the English?

It is my understanding that they are separate and unique pages and will not suffer from duplicate content penalties? +Joshua Berg

No, I can't make it to your HOA event, and I'm sorry...
I like you, it's not personal, but I can't say yes to every HOA event. I just can't. 

I use events to manage weekly client calls and communication. Private hangouts are perfect for this. But the problem is that my events page is so full of HOA invites that it's getting increasingly difficult to find the events that I need to find. 

So today I started clicking, "No" to events so I can clean this page up and make it a useful resource; and this got me thinking. Boy I hope this doesn't offend anyone. 

As an HOA producer myself, I would carefully watch to see who said "Yes" who said "Maybe" and who said "No" and I admit, I would see a name on the "No" list and get a little deflated. But I see now that not everyone is interested in every topic or guest that I host. 

So from now on, you might see me say "yes" to one of your events and "No" to another, but don't read too deeply into this please. Look it's not personal. 

In fact, if I ask you to not send me invites, I hope that's not taken offensively. Look, we're still friends. But let's work togather and give Mr. Jingles a break, eh? 

And while we are at it, let me confess that I sent out mass invites to my HOAs, and I'm sure I've annoyed many of you. Starting immediately, I am moving to an opt-in policy instead of opt-out. It's the right thing to do.

What are your thoughts about HOA invites, "Yes" and "No"?

Why is that?...
Is it just me or does it seem like there are a lot of local tradesmen and professionals that are trying to be social media marketers instead of being the expert in their industry. Why is that?

QuickBooks Online FAIL - again
Is anyone else having terrible issues with +QuickBooks Online?

The good news is they have reduced their pricing from $39.99/month to $29.99 a month on their Pro. The bad news is that if you had an account before the new price change, you are screwed! You are still being charged the old rates.

Basically they are penalizing customers for being loyal. 

After a 15 minute hold, the tech support person told me, "Well here's what you can do. You can export the data, import into Quickbooks desktop, then close your account. Open a new account with the new pricing, then import your data from desktop version into your new online account, but you will need to re assign some categories and set up your bank and credit card connections again. Does this help?"

What?!! This is not help folks, this is torture. This is the best they can do? Does this really make sense for $10/month?

And... what about their recent downtime?

They have been offline 3 Fridays in the last two weeks - Twitter was on fire with #fail  and #customersupport  Tweets and no response from QB accounts for hours.

I say, if you do not need to move to Online, wait until they get all this nonsense sorted out.

UPDATE: as a result of this post or a post to Twitter, I was sent a very respectful message from Quickbooks, they fixed the billing issues, gave me an additional discount, and I am a very happy customer now.

After the letter I received, I kind of feel like a heel now it was so well written.

Thank you +QuickBooks
