"Writing long form (1000–1500 words) always pays off. Sharing learnings increases the share rates up to 45 percent, and even further when backed with data or weird science."

That line alone got me to share this article on multiple social channels. So that's like multiple levels deep right? Write an article talking about an article about data facts and then ask people to share?

Umm... ya, I didn't expect to see that inside!
Wow! This building looks incredible! Exterior looks like a regular metal building and you could say if it's residential or not. But once you step inside then everything becomes crystal clear. The interior design is one of the most gorgeous we ever seen in metal buildings in years!

Everyone brainstorms, but few people do it well. To set yourself up for success and avoid group think, follow these guidelines and remember the brainstorming space is sacred. That means that whether you're meeting in a room or building a shared board on Pinterest, all ideas are good ideas (at least for now). This is crucial, because even one person who insists on questioning ideas or dwelling on practicalities during a brainstorm can shut down the creativity of the whole process.
One of the most difficult parts of content marketing is coming up with fresh ideas that'll really resonate with your audience. We'll help get the gears turning.

Personas can help you define a clearer picture of your customers. This post will show you how to create them on a budget.
We know Facebook has a huge amount of data on people. For the last 18 months, they've been sharing more of this information than ever before through their platform, Audience Insights. As a result, we can begin to pull together audience personas for very little cost other than time, effort, and a Facebook account.

Great stuff from +EliaLocardi. What a year!
 
18 Countries, 83 Cities, 77 Flights, and 175,953 Miles! What an amazing year!

First, I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the continued support with the kind comments, likes, plusses, tweets, and shares. It has been both an honor and a pleasure to share my photos and experiences with all of you and please know that you’ve all helped make 2015 a truly wonderful year.

Wow! 2015 has been a wild, perpetual and non-stop ride of huge projects of epic proportions. Looking back, it’s incredible to see how much our lives have evolved and changed, businesses has developed, and how the experiences of 2015 have caused me to step so far outside of my comfort zone with challenges, that I’ve grown in countless profound and positive ways.

It’s difficult to put into words how much has changed for us this year as we’ve settled into our fourth year of being 100% location independent, spent an entire year producing Photographing the World with Fstoppers, and officially launhed a business that we’ve been developing for the better part of three years called, Dream Photo Tours.

It’s been a wild ride, and along the way, 2015 has continued to confirm for me without a shadow of a doubt that passion, hard work and dedication will never go unrewarded.

This post is a collection of our favorite moments, favorite photos, and favorite memories from 2015. Thanks for being a part of it!

Don't just measure. Measure smart. Metrics mean nothing unless you combine them with your brain. Don't just gather numbers for the sake of gathering numbers; make them matter. When you show them to a client or boss, be able to answer the question, "okay, but what does this mean? Why are these good?" Remember, it's on you to prove the value of content.

"Bring together a work group of three to six people and ask each member to estimate the percentage of the total work that he or she does. Add up their estimates, and the average total is over 140 percent. Ask them to reflect on each member’s contributions before their own, and the average total drops to 123 percent."

Love this quote from "How I Lost 170 Million Dollars: My Time as #30 at Facebook" by Noah Kagan -

"Instead of debating theoretical scenarios, we agreed that if 10% of people used it post-launch that we would keep the feature. Many times in companies, egos get in the way where both people think they are right. To this day, I still use this method where I propose a small test with a specific result and let that make the decision."

I'm not surprised. I've only used Uber a few times, but each time was a much better experience than taxis.

Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft are gaining popularity among business travelers, but they still take a back seat to rental cars.

Introduction
I am instructed to put something about myself in this little box. But I have ADHD and I forgot what I am supposed to be putting here.

It's tough to describe yourself to the world without sounding boring or overly self-confident so I'll just say that I'm an entrepreneur with ADHD. I like discovering new ways to make money, particularly online. Some of my attempts have been successful, others have been complete flops. I enjoy both since they allow me to continue learning and enjoying the ride to ultimate success.

I've eaten at a lot of BBQ restaurants, particularly along the Wasatch Front. I would rate Bam Bam's in the middle of the pack. I don't dislike it, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here either. We walked right up to order without a wait on a Friday night (usually not a good sign for a restaurant). The restaurant employees were helpful, but didn't seem particularly knowledgeable (I actually LOVE strong opinions when I ask "what is your favorite dish"... I hate the answer "oh I don't know, they're all good - translated, "I don't care, just order") We ordered a 1/4 pound of turkey (better than most, but not as good as Big Al's smoked turkey down the road in Provo), 1/4 pound of brisket (our favorite meat choice), and a pulled pork sandwich (decent pork, but even the employees said that they usually don't like the pork). They only had 2 side choices (they were out of the 3rd choice of beans), the coleslaw (not my favorite), and potato salad (waaaay too much mustard for our taste). The food is served on paper on a school tray--points for being unique, but kind of a strange way to eat meat just thrown on paper (see my picture). In my opinion, the sauces are what turned me off with this place. I've eaten meat before that was so juicy and flavorful that you don't need bbq sauce, but most meat flavors are enhanced by a good sauce. Bam Bam's sauces (tangy and sweet) are essentially 98% vinegar with some stuff thrown in. Seriously, I didn't even have to squeeze the bottle... it just poured out all over the paper on the tray (another reason I didn't love the way the food is served... too difficult to pour a little sauce and dip the meat like you would fries in ketchup). Granted, I'm not a fan of vinegar, but even my wife who loves vinegar was turned off by the sauces. We ended up eating our meats mostly without any sauce (luckily they were moist... points for that). Overall, I think this place has room to improve. The atmosphere is great, the smell not as bad as other smokey bbq joints (although my coworkers went for lunch and smelled a little like bbq back at the office), the service is reasonable, the sauces are sub-par, and the food is just average. I love bbq so I might stop in again if I'm driving past with my window open, but I'll wait a while to give them time to improve.

Cash only is a bit odd in 2014. Good thing I had a trusty old bank check in my wallet. But the Oreo shake was worth it. Perfect for a hot summer evening (isn't every night in St. George hot??) I was also a little surprised how busy it was for a weekday night, especially considering how it is borderline hole-in-the-wall and could use a major design overhaul. But the wait was just a couple minutes and the shake was worth it.

My wife and I love eating Thai food and we keep coming back to Thai Village. Their lunch menu is a very good value. You get a small side salad with an egg roll, tons of sticky rice (any time I've asked for more they give me more), and ample portions of food. All for a very good price. Service has always been stellar for Thai restaurant standards. We've even chatted with the owner several times as he told us the history of some of the wall art (one piece took his friend over a year to hand carve!). I've had most of the curries and my favorite is the Massaman Curry with pork. My wife almost always gets the Pad Thai and asks for cashews instead of peanuts. We've had curries and pad thai in Thailand and this place tastes authentic. Heck, we even like it better than most of the food we ate at resorts in Thailand.

This review is mixed. I liked the food, but I hated the wait. We didn't go here until at least 1 month after opening (thinking the lines would have died down) and we still waited about 50 minutes to get our food. There was no room to sit down since seating capacity is only like 30-40 and there were at least 70 people in the restaurant and another 15-20 sitting on the curb outside in the sweltering heat. Good thing the fire marshal didn't stop by. While we waited, one (larger) lady even complained to the manager that she was going to pass out (and she was noticeably pale and extremely sweaty) so the manager brought out a bag of ice for her. We ordered the shrimp and the chicken fingers. I would have been satisfied with the food if I only waited a typical 5-10 minutes, but we only had 20 minutes to wait so I was upset that it took 50 minutes to receive our order. And I noticed that about 20 minutes into our wait the servers taking orders at the counter started asking customers "it will be a 20-30 minute wait, is that ok?" Why didn't they ask me? And why were they off on their estimates by 30 minutes anyway? On top of the wait, we finally received our order and I started walking out when I realized my bag was a little light. I looked in and I was missing half the order. So another 8 minutes and they got the rest of my order. Obviously they still have some kinks to work out. I'll come back in a year when the lines have died down. It's not worth a long wait for that food. And it's not really that much better than KFC. So I wouldn't drive out of my way for the food.
