HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

The title of my book, Imagine Your Soul Abundant: Attracting Success, Fulfillment and True Happiness was born out of the imagination and synergistic efforts of many dear friends including you, David.

IMAGINE-John Lennon (chorus)
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

Corporate MindShift: Transparency

SUPPORT OPEN INFORMATION

Information transparency is emerging at every level as a force that cannot be stopped. For this trend to positively serve society, it needs to be universal and balanced, not selective to give advantage to groups vying for power and control.

One critical area where we need transparency is in voting results.

Corporate Mindshift Is A Consciousness Tipping Point

CONSCIOUSNESS TIPPING POINT

Since the US Presidential election, I have been contemplating that moment in history when your country exercised their Free Will and made a statement for change by choosing Barak Obama as President-elect.

Many people have since focused on the shattering of the ethnic glass ceiling as the most significant outcome of this election. But, I think, there is something else, more profound, and of greater global significance, that happened. To use Malcolm Gladwells term, I think the historic implication of this event is that we hit the “tipping point” on Consciousness.

TOTAL TRUST IN THE CUSTOMER

Can you imagine a shopping experience where the owner tells you to touch everything, ask lots of questions, take your time, have a tea or coffee, and ring up your own purchases! Well, on one of my most unique shopping experiences, I heard all of that.

Hand Works is an eclectic array of mostly local artisan items displayed in a beautiful century home in the tiny village of Bloomfield, Prince Edward County, Ontario. The trip to Bloomfield is, of itself, well worth the experience-just to meet Tammy.

HOT JAZZ RETURNS

Over the years we get to hear a lot of music of various strains. Some is okay, some good, and some is amazing. We were enthralled by four musicians of the latter variety last evening.

JazzErie brought in Pete Mills with B3 keyboardist Tommy Monaco, New York guitarist Pete McCann, and drummer Jim Rupp of Woody Herman band fame, to a full house at the Courtyard Marriott. No one left until the last note was played.

INTRODUCING THE CONCEPT OF ENLIGHTENORS

Today, I would like to introduce you to a very unusual “Enlightenor(tm) “…Art the Tibetan Lama Llama! – and Art’s creator, Karen Manganye of Avant Garde Art Studio in Spruce Grove, Alberta Canada.

An “enlightenor” in our definition, is someone who is living the new values and mindshift of the future, and who is making a contribution to a peaceful and abundant future for all.

“I have an Art the Tibetan Lama Llama, seated in the lotus position. Although the story for Art is not complete, he, like all of my other sculptures are made mostly from all recycled garbage.

WHAT IS NETWORK MARKETING?

Our Thursday posting is dedicated to Network Marketing, so what better time than the Christmas season to talk about what it means to “network market.”

Probably the greatest networker of them all was Jesus Christ. He had a message he believed in, and knew it had to be shared with others. He gathered 12 others who believed in him and also wanted to spread the message.

WHAT IS THE LAW OF ATTRACTION?

One of our readers posted a comment on last weeks Law of Attraction blog and shared this punchy definition of the Law of Attraction:

“FATE YOU CREATE!”

I love it. It succinctly points out there is a need for both imagination and responsibility for the Law of Attraction to work. The creation process is found through a vivid imagination.

MUSIC IS MY LOVE
It calls to me in my dreams. I hear it in the wind, in the rhythm of the branches rubbing against my bedroom window. I feel electricity when I touch a guitar, a mouth harp, a piano.

I’ve decided to introduce you each week to a musician whose work I love, share a story or two, offer a bit about the music industry and a few resources. Whether you are an aspiring or performing musician looking toward your career, or a listener and lover of DooWop or BeBop, you might find something of interest.

Krispy Kreme

IS IT YUMMY ENOUGH TO BUY THE COMPANY?

Criticizing a business during the current quarter is like shooting fish in a barrel. Every financial news program talks about how much a given stock has lost this year. So my observations are not to dissuade you from getting your Krispy Kreme fix. Rather, I’m interested in the strategic positioning of companies, their future, and what the success of a given brand says about changes in society.

SOUND VALUE & MEANING VALUE

Many things struck me in your story about Carly, including her song, My Angel Mom. Angels are very special to me. I included the same line, “You are an angel” in a song I wrote long ago.

There is both a sound value and a meaning value in each word we use. Hence the power in a well crafted poem, or famous lines such as “… all men are created equal”, or “In the beginning was the Word.”

What we say (or write) every day can be meaningless and wasted, or it can have impact.

FOCUS GROUPS LET YOUR CUSTOMERS TALK

Conducting your marketing research [Wikipedia] incorrectly can cost you millions of dollars. Honest, I’ve seen it happen.

A lot of folks take the attitude, “It’s not rocket science”. And it’s not. But if you do it wrong, you can draw the wrong conclusions and destroy your business. So please do it right.

I thought I’d begin our weekly posts on marketing research with some of the research tools that have been developed over the years, starting with focus groups.
