Another great post - Reeling Them in: 6 No-Bull Marketing Tips for a World Full of Noise
Imagine you are fishing on a river. That river is the social stream for every platform. You pay a guide (marketer) to help you increase your catch. He is paid based on how long he keeps your eyes on the water. So he tells you every ripple means something; that there's an important story behind every bubble connecting in some way to your next catch. You might be so excited and focused on these things, watching the water dance with the elements, wa...

Handybook - NY based now in Sacramento- another entrant to a crowded home services matchmaking market. Yelp, Latch and Angie's List, what say you? Who's offering the superior service worthy of our attention/mind share? +Don Yoakum

Finally sharing some of my all time favorite speed reading hacks in this post. http://goo.gl/b0moU9
It’s amazing to me how many ambitious upstarts have the passion for new endeavor, yet hate to read and learn to reach their goals. If reading is a barrier to improvement for you; perhaps because you find it slow-paced, difficult or uninteresting, then you’re in luck. With the help of some new technology, you can speed read your way at 2-4x your current speed. This is a real time saver. How Speed Reading Works Reading text in the traditional form ...

This is so true. Even the social sphere is high on filler, low on substance. 
 
The real evolution of digital media

They've shifted from direct ads to low quality content practices. Social advertising is baiting the masses with regurgitated cat videos and affirmation quote images in hopes of building a following. If we include social advertising, it's mostly fluff veiled with a (sharing in the name of "community building", "engagement", etc. I enjoy the occasional item, but really try to engage with people sharing their own work, life, etc. I've gone organic and hope more people will.

Here's an awesome post to help you muster up higher self worth. 
It is an often said but poorly understood notion, that many if not most people in your life will try to discourage, devalue and chip away at your self-worth. Due to toxic patterns, poor upbringings, selfish behavior, and other environmental and psychological factors, the masses try to bring you down. While exploring this subject, I took a deeper look at these things, and decided to share my thoughts as to why people do this, what you can do stop ...

Story
Tagline
Adventurer, Entrepreneur, Thrivalist
Introduction
Armed with imagination, duct tape, a unique take on tech and a thirst for adventure, I have been a steward, curator and experience designer for exceptional brands, building ideas from thought to profit since 2003. I'm a true Bootstrapper through and through, balls to bone. I built everything with my own two hands and no safety net, silver spoon - I ain't no fortunate son. 

At Work:
  • I'm New Media Director and Sr. Experience Designer at Heroik Media
  • I'm always exploring ways to operate with extreme integrity and authenticity. 
  • I run the No-Bull Rodeo. 
  • I help companies and individuals stay consistent in word and deed and true to the promise of their brands. 
  • I'm a thrivalist and constantly building thrival culture for my clients to SWIPE (Steal With Integrity and Pride Everyday)
  • I write some awesome, skimmable articles at www.getheroik.com
At Home:
  • Devoted to personal development and exploring exactly what it means to be a better man, husband, brother, pet owner (RIP fish 1-umpteen), and beyond. 
  • Binge watching Star Trek, News Room, Cosmos, 30 Rock, House, and plenty of others.
  • Reading Books like a machine - I'm a speedy reader. 
  • Having a game/wine night with friends and family.
  • Hopefully I'm not at home because I'm out speaking, camping,travelling, adventuring with friends and loved ones.

Great bread, fresh ingredients, whole leaf lettuce. Shuffle board, BBQ, and game night- this place is fun for the whole family. The owners go out of their way to get to know everybody and the food is delicious.
