Have you ever heard truer words:

"Cost is an illusion. Everything costs too much if it has too little value, and everything is a bargain if it is highly valuable."

A Dozen Effective Ways to Overcome Client Cost Objections by +David Leonhardt on +B2C 

http://www.business2community.com/sales-management/dozen-effective-ways-overcome-client-cost-objections-01193431

Where's your tip jar? :)
I’m sure you’ve heard it before. “I would love to hire your company to get this done for us, but you cost too much.” Cost is an illusion. Everything costs too much if it has too little value,…

"One of the sad realities today is that very few people, especially young people, read books. Unless we can find imaginative ways of addressing this reality, future generations are in danger of losing their history." ~ #NelsonMandela​ at the launch of the Izipho exhibition, Book and Comic series, Nelson Mandela Foundation, Johannesburg, South Africa, 14 July 2005 #LivingTheLegacy #WorldBookDay

Can You Be Fired ... From A Volunteer Job?

"Wow, didn't see that coming! . . . Let’s see. I’m a volunteer who’s presided over a volunteer group for years because I wanted to see the chapter continue."  

Sound familiar? Ever happen to you? Apparently, this is more prevalent in not-for-profit organizations that you'd think. Of course, the skills used (and gained) can always be applied to your own small business, consulting practice or micro-enterprise. 

+Mitch Mitchell  shares his experience => http://www.ttmitchellconsulting.com/Mitchblog/can-you-be-fired-from-a-volunteer-job/

Let me tell you a story; it's true of course because it involves me. Last Thursday I listened to a message on my business line. It was from a guy who's a higher ranked board member that I am within a national organization I'm a part of. I'm a local chapter president, a position I've held for 12 of the last 16 years, mainly because no one else wanted the position and were happy doing what they were tasked to do. Anyway, he was calling to tell me ...

You are right.  I did not read the article, just the G+ posting, and pondering my own experiences with a number of volunteer organizations.  But that's a large part of what I said -  you run with whomever puts up their hand.

Left this comment over on David's original share ....

Being relegated to the dog house just got one-upped! LOL

I always liked the ring of "what's in your wallet" ... Now we get to say, "where have you been lately?" to the same tune!

Thanks for the chuckle, David! +David Leonhardt

BREAKING!  Cure for writer's block discovered in a toilet.

Scientists at Outhouse Labs have discovered that the cure for writer's block might not require any new devices or medical procedures, after all.  Early results indicate that combining a standard "throne" with a carefully selected assortment of glossy magazines can result in a reduced incidence of writer's block of up to 87.3%.

Working every day with online security and technology asset protection, +Imperva Incapsula  is uniquely positioned to gather meaningful data from #DevOps professionals.

"DevOps is a hot field and there are plenty of opportunities out there—but not all DevOps jobs and departments are created equal."

Here's their new DevOps Salary Survey 2015: Facts About DevOps Careers and Salaries

In a tech field? Wondering about DevOps?
Get your questions answered and see what your peers have to say.

https://www.incapsula.com/blog/devops-salary-survey.html

This #whitepaper is an excellent example of how to take a popular topic and shed widespread light on it using an up-to-date survey of those involved in the day-to-day.

One question I had was about where women fit on the DevOps scene. The white paper has a section on gender breakdown and some insights.

"Whoopty do!" Did I detect a bit of sarcasm there, +Ana Hoffman ? LOL I haven't really gotten into Tsu (though I hear some are really making money with it), so anything new will have to trump that.

Microsoft's Bing Distill looks interesting. If they can keep the spam done and the nonsensical answers to a minimum, it might just catch on.

Appreciate the Saturday morning wake up call aka Marketing Skinny). Have a great week Ana.
