So true. Most apologies from companies are not really apologies.
Compassion and Contrition "We're sorry that your flight was cancelled. This must have truly messed up your day, sir." That's a statement of compassion. "Cancelling a flight that a valued customer trusted us to fly is not the way we...

Well said. And thought provoking. What are you changing or risking?
On the first 100 pages of the new, thick issue of Vanity Fair, there are about 95 full page ads. Those ads feature, best I can count, 108 people. Of these, 24 of the people are some combination of not-sad...

Compelling thoughts and suggestions for hiring managers in this article about hiring employees who are over 50.
Lately I've heard a lot, both in the news and from clients, that people just don't want to hire a candidate that is over 50. This is short sighted and wrong, and here's why: In our culture no one

I love the way Seth Godin simply says something so obvious yet thought provoking that you stop and go "ya". Thanks Seth.
Sandeep points us to 'Sign', a restaurant in Toronto where every waiter is deaf and the only way to order is with ASL. This isn't a tourist attraction or merely a remarkable gimmick. What it does is reverse systemic bias...

Last night on the bike path I passed a well-dressed citizen, walking along with a bottle of water. I was stunned to see him finish his water and hurl the bottle into the woods. I stopped and said, "Hey, please...

Ted has been doing my small business bookkeeping for over a year now. He is accurate ( vital in a bookkeeper and CPA) responsive, patient and knowledgeable. He handles last minute requests with grace and composure though I try to keep those to a minimum. I highly recommend Ted's accounting services.

I recently took a 24 session course at AcademyX in Web Marketing covering SEO, PPC and Social Media. Overall it was a great class and I learned a lot. Each topic had a different instructor which mixed it up nicely. I feel like the class overall really helped me improve my skill set and is already allowing me to offer more services to my clients as a marketing consultant. AcademyX was also very responsive and timely in finding solutions to some issues that arose during the class with a few of the instructors, quickly addressing the issue and solving it. I would definitely take classes here again as I prefer the hands on, in person classroom setting for learning rather than an online course.
