80% of top #DirectSelling  companies have brandjacker videos on p. 1 of Google for their brand. I get why people do this, but really, it diminishes the reputation and professionalism of the whole #NetworkMarketing  industry.

Great list of social media productivity tools, especially if you're still just using all the native apps. Personally, I use IFTTT instead of Zapier and HootSuite Pro instead of Buffer. How about you? What's your favorite "add-on" social media tool?

Guess it's just as well that there's no +Ben & Jerry's in Austin any more (come back!!!) for #FreeConeDay... I'm on day 5 of my 30-day cleanse-and-burn and lost 7 lbs. already -- I'd hate to break my momentum!

This month, the first of several hundred new TLDs (top-level domains) are rolling out. Is this the new Wild West of internet domains? What does it mean for your business? Time to reassess your brand's domain strategy, or create one if you haven't yet.

I've worked with New Standard IRA for years, and never had a problem getting paid. Then again, I always delivered what I promised. "Effective" is up to the customer to decide.
