DON’T CHEW DURING AN INTERVIEW! (We know that YOU can understand you with a mouthful of food but, WE can’t!)
R.I.P http://tr.im/ (Don’t you just HATE what SPAMMERS can do to GOOD software companies?)
Telling an FB friend that the way it lords over our lives, I’ve concluded that “sleep” is ARROGANT! (But,I hope you get some rest, today…)
Know anyone with EXCELLENT HABITS? (Isn’t it great to just think about them?)
Re-conceiving and re-designing my professional networking and professional social media presence. (Remember: It CAN and SHOULD be DESIGNED.)
Quoting my ex- to a friend dealing with her son: ‘If I’d known he was going to be so much like you, I wouldn’t have bothered divorcing YOU!”
To be tagged, or NOT to be tagged: That is the question. QUICK POLL: Do you want to be tagged in photos, videos, and posts on Facebook?
What would you do if a client told you that one of your “friends” sent them a business proposal offering the SAME services you offer? OUT THEM?
Sanity check: Could your auto-reply cause your FRIENDS to reduce their contacting you? (Most autoreplies are too cold for friendships…)
If you think life is “passing you by”, get someone to teach you time management skills. #SchedulingSuccess
PLEASE don’t ask me to be a FREE CONSULTANT! I cannot afford to do that…sometimes, we need to be PRACTICAL…
Is chewing gum so important that you’d risk a job or a new client to finish it? (Put is aside and chew AFTER your meetings, ok?)
Patience is waiting for the red apple to redden, to ripen.
If you have a large network, don’t let anyone sell you on the Quality OVER Quantity argument. There’s betrayal even in SMALL families…
STOP being naïve!! There are people who will take and take and take and TAKE from you until you’re exhausted & give you NOTHING, in return.
Shouldn’t ALL relationships be about making better persons…???
When I Grow Up: I want to teach & teach & TEACH!! (Not to be called “Teacher” but, rather, “to show”. (“Teach” means “to show”))#WhenIGrowUP
Enjoying a day of MAGNIFICENT conversations with FRIENDS from St. Louis to San Francisco to Siberia. (Had my first call from SIBERIA, today!)
No matter how many plates of food they put on the table nor how many shoes they buy, parents should not leave their children wondering if they are loved.
Why, why, why, why, WHY do you start a Facebook chat with “hi”??? (And then, NOTHING for 10 minutes…)
Quick note: You CAN’T be 100% selfless and you SHOULDN’T be 100% selfish. Indeed, everything suggests RELATING TO OTHERS is a REQUIREMENT!!
Your crisis doesn’t stop others from having THEIR crisis CONCURRENTLY with yours. So, when crisis comes, you STILL might have to help others
Can we PLEASE, for God’s sake, stop calling children “step-children”? What’s “step” got to do with a child? If they’re yours, claim them!!
D.A.W.N.S = Dreaming About What NATURE Says! (Nature DOES SAY things to us, right??)
For those of you looking for jobs, there were 40 jobs posted on www.MyJobTIGER.com this week…It’s free. Feel free to join…
Are you risking enough to get what you WANT???

My son! My son! My SON!! What a cool, cool kid you are, my man!!
Anger isn’t as strong as anger THINKS it is.
You CAN’T succeed unless you START!
There’s nothing magical about 140 characters. 140 characters don’t create virality. It takes passion and intent and strategy to do that…
TODAY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY because it is the ONLY one in which you have LIFE! (Not, tomorrow. Not, yesterday. TODAY!!)
Adoptive parents ARE COOL! They INTENTIONALLY CHOOSE to share their time & their lives to improve the lives of children! COOLNESS @ its BEST
Sometimes, it’s like God jokingly said: “Watch how much I can confuse the entire world with just TWO genders - for THOUSANDS of years…”:-)

Who KNEW Vincent Wright had FOUR FANS? :-) http://ping.fm/8kws4
Being in a relationship should not be like having to guess the combination to a bank vault. Be open to those you want to share your inner wealth with.
What IS your life without your DREAMS? DREAM BIG! And if you fail? DREAM BIGGER!!!
Even as powerful as it is, sometimes, “why” just isn’t powerful enough…
Mis-hearing “antioxidants” as “anti-accidents” and thinking: “You know? I’m good with BOTH!” :-)
Nature’s earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, blizzards, etc make terrorists look like little ill-tempered babies beating on a drum for attention.
My C.I.A. Networking Concept = Confluence, Influence, Affluence. You need those 3 things TOGETHER just as you need H2 *AND* O when thirsty.
We CAN’T have JUST Quality and we CAN’T have JUST Quantity. Neither of those approaches makes one jot of sense in professional networking.
Telling a friend that Quality v Quantity is dead. As it should have been LONG ago. We need a suite of more ROBUST concepts to guide us in contemporary social media.
