"Early on in TOMS’ Shoe Drops, I (like countless others before) noticed that the people we met who seemed the happiest were most often those who possessed the least. The kids in the rural areas we visited, who owned little, often radiated a kind of joy about life that we saw far less frequently in the urban areas. The more I thought about this, the more obvious it seemed: Complicated lives and heaps of possessions don’t necessarily bring happiness; in fact, they can bring the opposite."

-- Blake Mycoskie (founder of TOMS) in his book "Start Something that Matters"

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.

I can only imagine the volume of work for a Google UI/UX designer, but how is it that some design elements are the latest, greatest Material design, and then some elements are remnants from the early 2000's??

Take for example Google Calendar, which has to be one of the most used Google products. Granted it's not necessarily a direct money-maker for Google, but some of their design sucks.

Then you look at Google+ and it's arguably one of Google's sexiest and most interesting products. Yet I don't have a single real-world friend that is active on here.

Google+ looks awesome.
Google Calendar looks neglected.

Take this notification setting for example. Is that a flip phone? Do Googlers still use flip phones??

"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.

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.
