I finished my 20th Toastmaster speech yesterday for the Advanced Communicator Bronze award. My special speech topic was a tribute to the amazing US Senator Daniel Inouye from Hawaii, who was a WW2 hero who became the highest ranking Asian-American leader in US government, 3rd in line to the presidency. He and his generation had sacrificed so much so that we can all enjoy peace and freedom today. The world can use more leaders like senator Daniel Inouye!

When is the best time of day for mobile push notifications to engage users? See this excellent research summary by Andrew Chen.
Push notifications are a cornerstone of every mobile app’s engagement and retention strategy, yet we know so little about them. Previously I’ve written about why 60% of users opt-out of push notifications and why some pushes are getting 40% CTRs.

Great tips from Rand Fishkin: How to Cheat at Creating Great Presentations for Tech & Marketing Audiences https://goo.gl/1lXacm
I speak a lot. In the last 3 years, I’ve given nearly 80 unique presentations at 100+ events in the technology and marketing fields. A good percent of the time, I get scores back from the organizers telling me how the audience perceived my talk in relation to other speakers. And, though it feels deeply, uncomfortably arrogant …
