I’d say it’s been a little while since I’ve written on this little blog. I can’t say that I’ve worried about it, but I would say I’ve missed it. A lot. What I’ve missed most about it is how simple blogging can be. Think about something you want to say and just write about it. […]
That’s how long it’s been since my last blog post. About three and a half months. A lot has happened in those months. Mainly, my son Micah was born and the journey through the first three months of his life have been nothing short of busy, tiring and fun. I will write about his birth […]
Trends in the way people use social media are constantly changing. What was once a good practice six months ago might not even be worth the effort or relevant today. In fact, over my years of blogging and using networks like twitter, facebook and more recently instagram, I’ve seen things change rapidly.
Don’t you feel like there is so much going in social media these days that is hard to keep up? New technologies, new social networks, new ways people communicate and share content. It fast, it’s changing and it’s still right where it needs to be.
For the past 12 years, I’ve been traveling like a mad man. Flying about 25 – 30 round trip flights a year on American Airlines and staying in Hilton brand (Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites) hotels almost every night of those trips. About 40 – 50 nights a year, sometimes more. But it’s time for a change.
I really like what Hilton has done over the years. They are a great brand but I find my personal tastes changing. So I’m switching to Marriott. I’m needing more from a hotel brand that makes travel just a tad easier and honestly… I like seeing big brands who are updating their look to keep up with travel trends.
I saw this when I walked into a Courtyard Marriott. I felt like I found a hotel that looks as cool as Aloft but with a lot more comfort.
Today is the day!!! I couldn’t be more excited to see Michael Hyatt release his book, PLATFORM: Getting Noticed In A Noisy World today!! This is going to be one of those books that people for years and years are going to be referring back to when it comes to platform, online presence… harnessing the […]
I was looking at my twitter feed a couple of weeks ago and noticed the main list I follow was mostly retweeted links from other twitter profiles. Part of me loves this. The part that wants to learn more, read more and tune into what others are reading. The wealth of knowledge out there on […]
Some of the people I have learned the most from in my life have been coaches. Sure, I’ve had mentors along the way who have walked me through valuable life learning experiences. But when it comes to skills that I’m trying to develop, most times there’s been a coach. When we are kids playing team […]
It’s crazy how the simplest ideas in the social media world become some of the biggest hits. When twitter first came out, their whole thing was “tell us what you are doing today”. Really? That’s all? Then comes along Instagram and takes things to a whole new level. In fact, as much as I love […]
Sometimes we make big changes expecting to see big results only to be disappointed when small things happen. I’ve done this. In fact, there are times when I’ve over promised and under delivered. I hate it when that happens!! I guess most people would call that the growing pains of experience right? Lately I’ve been […]
