Recently, I was flying out to BlogWorld and some of my fellow companions on the flight were shocked to learn that I hadn’t logged in during the […]

This Will Be Your Year

2011 is in full swing. How are your new year’s resolutions going? My guess is you are kicking butt and taking names. The key is for this to be the same answer after a week, a month, and six months from now. Many of the workshifters I interact with regularly all made resolutions this year. […]

Recently I read an interview with someone from an internet marketing firm. One of the questions asked of this person was about how she managed to accomplish all she did each day. It seems she is a prodigious writer, is active in social media, and services clients without missing a beat. Plus she maintains a […]
