Puppy Training On the Go:

 For those of you that have suffered or, are currently suffering from the "Puppy Crazies!" you know it can really test your patience and some puppies can take you to the edge!

Here's a great way, in fact a cheap trick, to burn puppy energy constructively. It can save mental and physical wear and tear - on you! 

A cheap trick in action with our new puppy, Keeper! #puppytraining

I was reminded of when my friend Matt had his puppy, a beautiful blue Staffie. She had so much energy that it took the both of us to deal with her - and she's a very strong little thing.

For those that have been following this project, the case study has been published and it is excellent. The findings confirm what's been said and talked about for years. I personally don't think it's complacency fyi... I thinks it's the never ending deluge of 'relationship marketing' that makes 'Joe the paint mixer' at Lowe's the 'go to guy' when it comes to technology for most small businesses.
But that's another post all in itself. 

Take the time to read this case study.  Throw the Magic Google Guru Pixie Dust to the side, and get down to the business of what it's going to take to help a town.
Congrats to +Louisa Chan , +Sheila Hensley , +troy mc laughlin , +Lucie Nolette , +Mary Stovall +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales +Marilyn Ritter,   +Vin Brown , +Debi Davis , +Rey Ley , +Peter Lunn , +Cherie Manifest, +Sanjiv Manifest , +Tim Sweeney , and +Nina Trankova .

I'm grateful for the opportunity to have helped with this while on +martin shervington's  +Plus Your Business! team and Show. And thanks for the support you provided +Mick Sharpe.
 
Let’s Put Eagle, CO on the Google Map : A Case Study …

Increasingly, we look for things when we are on the go, i.e., we search locally using our smartphones, to find products or services of interest right where we are !
➢➢➢ Businesses must be on Google Maps otherwise customers are not going to find them !

Google’s Get Your Business Online (GYBO) program was set up in 2011 to help businesses get on the map. However, There is a gap between Google’s programs (GYBO) and small businesses ... certain expertise and experience is required to effectively use GYBO and “get on the map.”.

This gap is bridged by projects like Put Eagle, CO on the Google Map!

Our project was conceived as an informal experiment to learn more about “Google Local” – in the context of Eagle, CO, i.e., by putting businesses in Eagle, CO on the Google Map. This experiment emerged as part of the team’s participation in the Plus Your Business Academy, Pathfinders-Level 3.

Our conclusions :
➢ we confirmed that while there are existing self help procedures, businesses can, and do, face challenges when implementing the program
➢ after getting on the map, socialization can help businesses increase their reach - receive more traffic, and ultimately more customers.

For full details please visit our case study page : http://goo.gl/COhLp9

”The authors want to acknowledge and express their gratitude to +Stan Bush , +Mick Sharpe +martin shervington, and +Plus Your Business! for their support and also to the other team members who made valuable contributions over the course of the project: +Louisa Chan, +Sheila Hensley, +troy mc laughlin, +Lucie Nolette, +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales, +Marilyn Ritter, and +Mary Stovall. In addition, we are grateful to the larger Google Plus community for their support and encouragement throughout the project.”

+Stan Bush am finally catching up on various notifications - unfortunately we had to "step away for several days" right after launching the case study :-( ...

I echo our other teammates, your support has been invaluable .. and I wholeheartedly agree re "...Individuals win medals, awards and recognition. Teams win championships. ..." ... I couldn't have said it better ...

One of my favorites in this project is how organically the team came together and how much we accomplished as a team ... it is one of my most recent reminder re the whole is greater than the sum of the parts .. and I am most grateful to be part of such an experiment.

Thank You again for your presence on The Plus!

Man. I'm glad I found this tutorial.
I've been asked to sing a song at church. I've been struggling what song to play. I think I have the appropriate skillset for this one.

I've found some interesting collections so far, and I'm sure you will too.  
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Story
Tagline
Everything I know I learned by doing.
Introduction
I've been gainfully unemployed since 1984. I officially entered the IT business in the early 90's. Before that I owned retail gift shops, ran a chain of shoe stores, managed a radio station, and was GM of several large businesses.  

Generally I post specific articles to pages, circles, and communities that I manage, or are a part of. I don't hate cats, nor the people who love them. But I very rarely follow, share, or comment on pictures of them. 

If I have to share your post to prove I love Jesus, America, mom, dad, sister, brother, wife, daughter, or that I'm reading your posts you may be disappointed with me. I simply don't do a lot of that. 

I'm interested in helping people build sustainable communities.  Non device, operating system, or application dependent homes on the web. Safe havens. 

I've worked 70 hour weeks for 19 years on IT related projects. I probably know some stuff you might find useful.  But mostly I want to know about you.

I read the profiles of everyone I follow. 

If you invite me to a group about any subject, and the only thing I see are posts about things you're trying to sell.  I probably won't join. I wish you all the luck in the world, but it's not for me. 

If you invite me to a group where I can't read anything, I probably won't join that either. 

Just because you can Google expert, doesn't mean you are one.

If you're Google apps, profile, page, local, webmaster, blogger, sites, drive, gmail, wallet, keep, tasks, or analytics don't work...and you're IT guy says it's because of something Google has done, or that it can't be fixed....then you should talk to me. I can fix it. 

Just because you have a Marketing Degree doesn't mean you understand sales. 

If you have a retail store and your social media advisor is telling you that online is the only way to survive, you need to talk to me. They don't know the difference between order taking and sales. They don't understand customer service versus lip service.  Your retail store has distinct advantages over online stores only.  I can help you discover them. 

I fix broken things. Networks, relationships, or business plans included. 
When everything's on fire, I'm the guy to hire. 

I also contribute to StanBush Georgiawebs  | Sales Training And Networking | Northside Eagles |  and many, many others.

The best jewelry guy I know works at this store. Jack Bryan is well known in this area for his expertise when it comes to diamonds, watches, and other fine jewelry. And he works here. If for no other reason than to get a no BS answer about anything to do with jewelry...go here. JB is the best there is.

I've been shopping at Belk's since I was a kid. It was called "Belk Matthews' back then, and it had the best sales of any other department store. And guess what...it still does.My best tip here is... check here on EVERY national holiday. They will have an unbelievably great sale going on...and good Belk's associates to help you with your purchase. Park on the side nearest Houston Road if you want to park in the shade!

The only bad experience I've ever had here involved them running out of room for me. They have always gone out of their way to say hello, and to bring me a big carafe of steaming hot coffee and a mug. While it's not 'gourmet' food, neither are the prices. And while it's not 'country club' atmosphere..it's where me and my buddies go to hangout once a month. Be nice to them, and they will be nice back. It's just human nature.

Best sales, best equipment, and best employees in the area. We bought a free standing Basketball goal from them at Christmas. When we went to pick it up, someone else had 're-sold' it. Without asking, they called another store..gave them our address...and had it delivered to our home. And this during the busiest retail time of the year. Great store... I salute you.

If you're in a hurry, and all you need is gas and or a snack... go here. I've never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for anything. Everyone behind the counters here are fast... really fast, at doing their jobs. AND they are also very accurate. I don't know who trains them, but I wish they would train other stores to be this much of a well oiled machine... Kudos to everyone there.

Apparently WalMart and McDonald's employees take the same test. If you have a passing grade, you can't work here. Imagine the worst service, employees, and cleanliness you can. Now triple it. That' might get close. Even when there isn't anyone in the restaurant, the tables are never 100% clean. The only way we eat from here is if we have absolutely no other option. And since there is a Walmart attached to it... there's always an option. I don't recommend this to anyone. It's a terrible expereince.

First of all, my kids loved this place. But they no longer live in WR, and are all in Atlanta. I'm not sure whether it's because all their friends worked there, or because all their friends went there. But I'm fairly sure it wasn't because of the food. As far as I can tell, they use the same thing to make their chicken taco as they do their chicken burrito...except it's crunchier shell. We were here two days ago and couldn't find a place to sit. Not because it was busy...but because there were no clean booths, although all of them were empty. And I do mean all of them. if Taco Bell is your thing, have at it. But it's simply not on my list of 'favs'.
