Zinging Zynga

Zinging Zynga

Zinged  – to be criticized in a pointed manner  (Webster’s online dictionary) There’s lot’s of zinging going on at Zynga headquarters lately.  And it reminded me of when I was fresh out of college and got involved in a cutthroat Scrabble® Club. (My wife and kids still ridicule me for being a nerd). Decades later I was excited to sign up for Zynga’s “Words With Friends” game – essentially an online version of Scrabble®. […]

Five Business Lessons that Sandy Taught Us

Five Business Lessons that Sandy Taught Us

I live in Charleston, SC and “knock on wood” I have never experienced a devastating hurricane, even though the ghost of hurricane Hugo still lingers in this city. Watching the pictures from the effects of Hurricane Sandy has reminded me that the ghost sticks around a long time, especially if you don’t learn the lessons on how to deal with the demon. There are many lessons to be learned from Hurricane Sandy. Far too […]

Stop the Presses!! – Newsweek is stuck in an old business model

Stop the Presses!! - Newsweek is stuck in an old business model

Stop the presses. I mean literally STOP THE PRESSES. (I really did mean to yell). That’s what’s going to happen at Newsweek at the end of this year. That’s right, after nearly 80 years of publication, the news magazine will no longer be printed. It will no longer “go to press”. Newsweek, under the direction of Editor-in-Cheif Tina Brown has created an exit strategy and will be implementing an exit plan to fully transition […]

Loose Seats show how Stuck American Airlines is

Loose Seats show how Stuck American Airlines is

Funny how having something loose is indicative of being stuck. The irony of it is downright humorous if not for the potentially dangerous situation this represents to the flying public. But that is truly what is going on these days at American Airlines. The recent revelation of problems of loose seats that have crippled this airlines operations this week are just the most recent example of internal issues that have this company stuck in their […]

Getting Stuck with your website

It’s easy to get sucked into the endless tweaking of getting your website just right. Whether it’s an e-commerce store, a blog or just a simple basic ‘static’ website, there never seems to be the absolutely perfect configuration. It’s so easy to get stuck spending a lot of time and effort on these tweaks. Why is that? Well one reason for sure is the need to keep our content fresh, our keywords up-to-date and […]

Baseball & Business – Both Slaves to Numbers

Baseball & Business - Both Slaves to Numbers

When I was a boy growing up in Columbus, Ohio there were two competing newspapers, one the morning paper which did not have a very good sports page – not a lot of baseball statistics – and the afternoon paper which had all of the box scores from the previous days games. During the summer I couldn’t wait to come home from playing or school to devour the sports page. I was a slave […]

Stuck on You – The Danger of Not Having Enough Clients

Stuck on You - The Danger of Not Having Enough Clients

Ever heard the expression “That’s a good problem to have”? I’m sure you have. A lot of my non-business owner friends and colleagues used to tell me this when I expressed to them the trepidation I would have in landing a very large account. They couldn’t seem to grasp that in addition to the great upside potential a large account offers, it also represents a significant risk to the business. There is a danger […]

Multitasking is a Myth

Multitasking is a Myth

How often do you hear people to refer to “having many balls in the air” and that’s why they need to multitask. Don’t get stuck in your business thinking that multitasking will lead to greater work efficiency and productivity.  It won’t. [powerpress] Let’s take the case of a juggler. He is focused on one task, making sure that he can grab the bowling pins, or whatever he is juggling, without any of them falling. He is […]

Business Growth is Worthless

Business Growth is Worthless

Business Growth is worthless. There it is. I said it. And I’ll say it again. Business Growth is worthless …. unless you understand that it is not a one time event, like some Olympic Athletic event to train for, compete in and then go home hopefully with a medal. What is Business Growth? Is this an overused word that has lost it’s meaning. Does it mean the same thing to everyone? Of course not. […]

Get Unstuck through Improv

Get Unstuck through Improv

Just think about this simple observation. When we were young-un’s we were completely uninhibited. We said whatever came to mind. Nothing to embarass us, hold us back. Nothing to get us stuck in our own mindset of what was acceptable, what was proper. We just let it out there. Our minds were totally free. Oh how I wish I could capture just a smidgeon of this again. Wouldn’t that be absolutely empowering? That is […]
