That was a great video. So clearly spelt out.I've spoken to a few people and I suspect they did not know the difference.

The only difference between "TRY" and "TRIUMPH" is a bit on 'umph'.

So when it seems to hard, just keep pushing. Even when others laugh at your dreams and ridicule it, use a bit more 'umph' and believe that you'll get there.

These kids from Thailand know about that.....

Our interconnected world
(subtitle - my world is about to end!)

Since the earthquake(s) in Christchurch, New Zealand, Sanitarium (NZ) have been forced to close their factory. As a result they haven't made any Marmite since November 2011. As a result Australia is almost out of stock!!! When current stocks run out there will be no more until July 2012. There could be riots in supermarkets as panic buying sets in (well, at least in the suburbs with large English populations)

The downside of an interconnected world.

LOL, when in doubt......
The problem with Social Media (and I say this because I make a living from helping businesses get to grips with it) is that there is too much choice and every day a "new toy" comes along that everyone tells you is the next BIG thing. La la la. I work with established platforms and let other people play with the shiny new stuff. Works for me.

Some people say that cats are cool and dogs are dumb. Maybe there's a reason they have a dumb look on their faces all the time :-)

My Google Phone just upgraded itself to Version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

There are three groups of you now:
* Group (a) just said "Woot woot!!!"
* Group (b) just said "wft?"
* Group (c) just said "Tell someone who cares."

But also remember that there are three types of people in the world:
* Those who make things happen,
* Those who watch things happen
* Those who wonder what happened

There may be some correlation between these two groups ;-)

Technology. Master, slave or annoying neighbour!

A sad day for all the sales people out there who started their career going door-to-door selling EB. We salute you, and this amazing institution. (p.s. if you are a vacuum cleaner sales-person,you might want to take note of this event)
 
END OF AN ERA

+The Internet and Technology killed it!

I know people say that the Internet is producing new economies and new types of business, but they simply do not need to employ as many people as the old-style industries and most of them are only good for young tech-savvy people, often with university degrees. the unskilled and semi-skilled worked is being phased out faster than they can retire.

I would, being an Indian, because it says its a bargain! Don't believe me? Have a look at our politics and economies (PAKISTAN) if we didn't believe that hogwash every time we were fed it, would we be where we are now? LOL

Video works!

If you want people to notice your organisation, then consider using video.
1. Easy to watch
2. Engages a variety of senses
3. Shorter message
4. Try to keep it entertaining and people will share it.

Belgian bus company de Lijn have a great series of ads. Well done to the creative team at their ad agency for taking a potentially boring subject and making it interesting.

Introduction
I talk about almost anything. If you circle me, I will engage and comment and +1 and share. I may not agree with you, but I'll try to be polite. I see the world through a pair of eyes that has seen pain, suffering, starvation and war. So I chose to be an optimist and a humourist. My sense of humour is dry so please do NOT take offence as none is intended. Believe me that you will know if I ever want to offend you (but it is unlikely to happen).

I am an "Online Business Marketing Strategist" having founded my own web design and online marketing company Internet Marketing For You

Circle(s) you could put me in
  Internet Marketing
  Web Design
  Geek
  Political commentator
  Australian/Aussie

FINAL NOTE:
If you circle me (thanks) I will go and check your profile. If it has nothing about you and/or you have never shared a post that I could see, then the chances of my circling you back are zero. Sorry, but I have to have a cutoff point somewhere.

DISCLAIMER:
The views expressed here are sometimes my own and sometimes those of the person who I shared. Reading this stuff may make you laugh, think deeply or angry. In the first case, press "+1". In the second case press "share". In the third case press someone else's profile and keep going!
Bragging rights
I speak 3 languages (I want to speak 7) - I speak English (actually Australian, but that's close enough) - Я говорю немного русском - Je parle français (très mal - LOL)
