Your thoughts?????
How is Norris Wrong Today? (Finding things I’m wrong about is getting waaaay too easy? ;) So I’ll save it for later in this post)In the name of domestic tranquility, let’s claim this scenario is apochryphal ;) Entrep educator has a room full of learners doing all sorts of experiential projects. Instructor is checking in with each team and the teams are helping each other in glorious chaos. Administrator walks in, observes a bit, then says “I’ll c...

How to deal with a rambler! So how do YOU deal with NORRIS' rambling? :) http://lifehacker.com/how-to-deal-with-someone-who-constantly-rambles-1677630626 … p.s. I recommend just telling me :)
A good conversation is all about the back-and-forth; both parties listening and responding. If you're with someone who tends to ramble on and on, however, that dialogue turns into a monologue. Here are a few tips for dealing with a Chatty Kathy or Mr. Chatterbox.

Dear friends - sadly, it is time again for me to blog. :)    http://bit.ly/NKblog 

If 2015 is to be The Year of The Entrepreneur... there are things that need to happen, things that need to change.  Here is one that costs very little but needs to be done brilliantly. 'Good enough' ain't good enough any more.

The post riffs on some VERY exciting news out of Gallup Education. Its director, Brandon Busteed, presented this week in Boise on their mind-blowing results.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/168848/life-college-matters-life-college.aspx

Do you want students to get deeply engaged in school... and life?
Do you want students to be ready to succeed in the real world?
Let then design and implement personally-relevant, real world-affecting, problem-solving projects. Deeply experiential in the true meaning of the term.

Doesn't sound like what most entrep programs claim to do? And the very best programs actually do?  (After you read that Gallup link, you can imagine I damned ear kissed the guy, lol) And some of you will know why I love ya!

The blog post has three additional links you will like!

More good news for Idaho - how many of you have heard of LiveRez, Eagle-based software platform for property reservations? Or founder Tracy Lotz? No? Then maybe you've heard of their new partner, some little outfit called... AirBnB? LiveRez is the FIRST software partner for AirBnB. Not too shabby, eh? www.liverez.com
The leader in cloud-based vacation rental software for professional vacation rental managers. Designed to save time and money, and increase bookings.
