Are you prepared to ‘give up the goat’?
“The shepherd wanted to pass his flock across a river. A wolf passed by and afflicted his flock. The wise shepherd said, ‘what shall I do, he might destroy the flock as I move the lambs across.’ He raised his eyes and saw a wild goat, big and strong. He said ‘I shall throw him before the wolf. While they do battle with each other, I shall remove the flock and they shall be saved from him.’”

Who needs cable and wires anyway? Thankfully, the days of unsightly cables and wires are a thing of the past.

I spent some time at Verizon this morning helping a client port her number from a T-Mobile Android to a Verizon iPhone. The real fun began when we couldn’t transfer 2,400 contacts off the Droid’s SIM card. Needless to say, I wish we had the ConXfer App!
ConXfer is a patent pending wireless, mobile to mobile secure contacts transfer application. It simplifies the process of securely transferring a user’s contact and mobile business cards from one device to another using WiFi or Bluetooth.
Are social media and an online marketing strategy a good investment of time and money?
It should come as no surprise that the proliferation of social media has turned social networking into an important business tool. And with each year that passes, more and more social networking sites have cropped up, each with unique opportunities to market a business or product. The problem is: you only need to master them. No big deal, right? (I’m kidding).
Is it possible these days to grow an online business without an online marketing strategy –including all the liking, blogging, sharing and tweeting? After all, it’s time consuming!
