Going live in 40 mins!
So many great people to connect with at #SMMW15  and so much to tell you about what is going on. This is going to be a lot of fun :D
And there may well be some familiar faces live from the hotel, as well as +David Amerland joining us in the hangout too (as we couldn't do it without him, could we? :D)
Myself and hangout-on-air expert +Travis Taylor will be connecting with the masterly +Ronnie Bincer on Thursday. All being well, hotel bandwidth allowing, we will have a fun show streamed live from San Diego.
You never know what is going to happen with this one, and who may well pop in, so hope to see you then!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Plus Your Business!. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
The PYB show from SMMW15!

Shift your perspective!

Thanks for the ping +David Amerland :D


We spent the best part of the 20th century buying into an "Us" vs "them" ideology, a triumph of "good" over "evil" when really things are way more grey in hue. While Lucas' vision took us down an ever devolving fairy tale world you can't help but question "Why?" and 'evil empire' does not  just come into being, nor does it sustain itself  without doing something good, without delivering some benefits. 

Here, well I was rooting for the Tie Fighters :D

Morning all!
You know cool things are going on in San Diego when I am up at 4.30am to connect online with the people I've connected with offline in the last 48 hours.
#SMMW15  is already underway...
+Ronnie Bincer and I finally connected after 3 years of online friendship and collaboration. LOVE the guy.
+Dustin W. Stout is a visual master, an explorer, a helper. I saw him flow advice for a new juicebar looking at getting more social. 
+Anna Bennett is super fun Pinterest expert. Circle her. She is VERY SMART too.
+Joel Comm such a FUNNY guy. Loved connecting.
+Jeff Sieh's beard is even more amazing in real life.
+Ian Cleary is just fantastic, as always.
+Mike Gingerich super nice guy who I first connected with when I met +Sue B. Zimmerman (who is a AMAZING).
+Lynette Young and I compared notes on how people simply don't understand Google+, but that is ok. There are many waves, and sometimes you just have to relax and enjoy the ride.
(So many more people I could add here!)
And then there is +Chris Brogan who, since last year's event has become a true friend. I collected Chris from the airport, hungout at +John L Settles's beach front chill zone (which is where I take the selfie videos that I post on Instagram, if you ever want to see me half asleep in the morning!), ate a spicy curry for lunch (which we've been planning for months), and then talked about minds meeting (more on that again), then ended up connecting up in the evening once more. He is such a good influence on me, and, btw, he loved the curry. (+Peter Feltham should be delighted.)
+Michael Stelzner and the +Social Media Examiner crew, including the lovely +Kimberly Reynolds, have created something very special indeed. Thank you for trusting me last year, and inviting me back again.
Time to get some emails together to help bring some people together. Truly amazing.
I'll be here for a few hours, then back into the flow, head spinning. This place enables you to remember your value to the community is determined by how many people you can help.

How are you? Need anything from me today? How can I help?
