The New Resume

I can't imagine what it is like to apply for a job. I've chosen a very different professional life for myself.

Great Advertising (From An Unexpected Brand)

When was the last time you paid attention to a commercial about toilet paper? Or even cared to? Kimberly-Clark's Cottonelle brand (not a client) has come out with dispenser packaging for its Fresh Care Flushable Dry Wipes product. Yes, a moist and flushable toilet paper. Innovative product? Maybe. Stunning Cannes-worthy advertising?

Are Brands Confusing Advertising With Marketing?

Insane Ambition

There are some moments when you're probably highly motivated and others when you struggle. It's like that one time that you decide to ditch the gym and simply can't find the momentum to get back at it. You'll blame everything from the kids to busy being busy at work, but deep down you know that you're simply not motivated to do it.

How To Become A Thought Leader

That is the short and simple answer to what is a very complex thing to define. If Anderson Cooper describes you as a "marketing thought leader" prior to interviewing you on air, you can run with that title.

Are We At The Beginning Or The End Of Publishing?

Regardless, that was the exact question that Alistair Croll (co-author of Lean Analytics, BitCurrent, Year One Labs and one of my weekly link buddies) asked of Hugh McGuire ( PressBooks, LibriVox, co-author of Book: A Futurist's Manifesto and my other weekly link buddy), Julien Smith ( Breather, co-author of Trust Agents and The Impact Equation and author of The Flinch) and me at today's International Startup Festival.

Don't Be An Anonymous Cog - CTRL ALT Delete With Seth Godin

What's The Point In Commenting On Blogs?

Jerry Seinfeld Makes The Internet Even Better

Jerry Seinfeld is doing a new show. It's on his own terms. It's on the Web. It's amazing. It's called, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Its' self-explanatory. He picks a comedian. He picks a car. He calls them up. He asks them if they're in the mood for coffee.

PowerPoint Doesn't Suck. You Do.

Here's something to think about as you head into the weekend: PowerPoint doesn't suck. You suck. Sorry. I don't mean "you" (the person reading this blog post... I mean after all, for all I know you could well be one of the smartest people in the world), but the person who is speaking/presenting/attempting to captivate a crowd and is using way too much slide presentation software without understanding their content at all...
