The 7 Marketing Skunks

My friend Brenda sent me this picture of her nieces. Brenda’s sister wrote the following about the picture: “So there I was . . . just relaxing in front of the T.V. When the kids yelled, ‘Hey Mom, come see the kittens.'”

Baby Skunks

Now if this isn’t a picture made for forwarded emails I don’t know what is. I have no doubt that this picture will still be circulating long after these girls are grown.

Five Ways To Use Twitter For Business

Five Ways To Use Twitter For Business

Twitter twitter Lately I have been pondering on the existence of Twitter. Truthfully, my first introduction to Twitter was quite pessimistic. I figured it to be the web’s version of reality television. It was just another tool that made it possible for us to follow people’s rather boring lives.

Several years ago this impression was identical to my feelings on blogging . It wasn’t until blogging stormed the business arena that I opened my eyes and mind to the unlimited possibilities. The geniuses of this mentality is also forming with Twitter. However, I don’t think currently Twitter has quite the luster that blogging has towards business and monetization.

Yet, I am certain that this will change and quickly. Below are five possible ways on how you can use Twitter for your own business. If anyone has actual stories of how they made money or used Twitter for their business please let me know. ~Paul W.

Is This The Real Guy Kawasaki?

Is This The Real Guy Kawasaki?

I just posted on Guy Kawasaki and how he feels picked on with the blogosphere. While I was looking for a picture of Guy for my last post I came across something very interesting.

As you see below there are three pictures of Guy. However, if you look closely to the first two pictures you will see that they are actually the same. In exhibit (1) is the “Guy” you meet in person, and exhibit (2) is the “Guy” you meet on the web. It’s obvious that someone had a fun time photoshopping Guy. I made an exhibit (3) to reveal all the cyber changes Guy has undergone.

I noticed that the picture displayed on Guy’s blog is the photoshopped version. It kind of reminds me of the Dove Campaign8) ~Paul W.

Guy Kawasaki’s Blogosphere

Guy Kawasaki’s Blogosphere

Guy Kawasaki.jpg Yesterday I went to hear Guy Kawasaki speak in Salt Lake City. It is the first time I’ve heard him speak, and I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation—even with all the microphone technical difficulties.

While we were waiting for the presentation to start two guys behind me were talking about an easy way to crack an iPhone. If you go to www.JailBreakMe.com on your iPhone the website will instantly hack the phone and open up the network. I have yet to be an adapter to the iPhone but that advice was well worth the $10 I payed for the conference (not to mention Guy’s fun presentation).

I was going to give you my notes on Guy’s power point but you can get the whole presentation by emailing mary-louise at garage.com. Plus, if you want to know about the books he recommended you can go to my business partner’s blog and see Guy’s suggestions.
