A Good Day To XeeMe | It's their 2 year anniversary Happy Birthday XeeMe. My XeeMe love story started October 30, 2011. I'm pretty sure I found it through my friends on Empire Avenue. I've began using XeeMe as a signature, a business card, a QR code, a catalogue, an index, and even a Twitter tool. In honor of XeeMe's 2nd year I have written a brief overview of how I use my profile and the clever name. "Oh no, not another social network!" This is a sentiment heard most often whenever a new  social media site launches or when people hear about another must have website. I've felt this way a time or two myself. But not since I discovered XeeMe, an online profile manager that allows you to organize all of your important l...

#LivingSugarFree Dressing on a budget: You don't need money to look fabulous. I was inspired to write this while cracking up at shows that are meant to tell people how to survive the economy and get by on a budget... but the "experts" on the show have clearly never had to do it. A 3 hour makeover, to recycle old clothes for a stay at home mom to get back out in the work force: 1. Go through the closet for salvageable items. 2. If you have a suit or suit jacket, that's a great start. 3. Refurbish items, hem, change buttons, etc. 4. Add sparkle with new items, accessories, etc...here's where they lost me... Why would you spend 3 hours refurbishing old clothes and then buy a $250 sweater??? You wouldn't! *So instead get over...

It's not that I don't want to be friends with you | #LivingSugarFree About Andréa It's not that I don't want to be friends with you. I just don't want to be your Facebook friend if I'm not already or we don't have history. Sorry. It's not personal. Maybe I'm a somedia introvert. It's just that, FB has always kind of creeped me out. This has not changed in the past 5 years since I decided to play along. But it has changed since I figured out how to manage it to my own satisfaction. To be honest I <3 my little FB neighborhood. I can actually get to people, engage and support. Maybe for you that's no big deal, but some of us work better with small groups. I can do stage w/ 1000's just fine... but having 1000's of people talking, with confl...

#LivingSugarFree #Execute #CustomerService If you are over the age of 25, you probably agree that CS has gone to the dogs, actually that would be an improvement... anywho, my point is: In the name of getting things done, being productive, positively impacting others, spreading peace and the elimination of bullying and environmental pollution... The million dollar question is... How much time do you spend complaining about bad service rather than coaching the person serving you through the process to get what you need done? Many hourly employees today don't understand the classic customer concepts:
Give 'em the pickle.
or
Never say no.
or
The customer is always right. I can help with understanding teamwork concepts. I can help with understanding teamwork concepts.
None of these quot...

If you have a business, this article is a must read. If you don't have a business, this article is a must read. People are much more in control of their environment, career, life, etc. when they are fully literate. Yes I know you can read and write; but are you fully literate?
Does social media affect the value of relationships; the ability to trust an individual or organization; and the overall flow of currency in an economy?

Happy Friday darlings!!! Did you finish the week strong? Get everything you wanted? Accomplish all your goals? No, what???!!!! :-D That's ok, me either. Remember success is a journey... And guess what, you're closer to goals than you  were last week because you gave it your all... You did give it your all right? No???? :-D That's ok too. Eliminate "try" from your vocabulary and your mind. Then  you will give your all and appreciate your own efforts more. Also plan your Monday today and leave your unfinished tasks on paper, not in your psyche. Then, go have a relaxing and fun weekend. You deserve it! Don't forget to take some time for reflection and gratitude.

Do your research and be creative when you are ready to launch your brand. Don't try to ride on existing traffic, influence and people who are using generic concepts. Lawsuits are rampant and it shows a lack of integrity, ingenuity and true social entrepreneurship to try and sue an individual or business for using a term that is owned by the public... Especially when it's obvious that people were using that term long before you decided to jump into the world of business. It makes you look inexperienced and desperate. I would not trust my business to a company that does that, would you? We've been using this term since I can remember. I'm sure I can find older references, but this is the one that popped up first.
We all know that many of ...

The Media Doesn't Lead Strategy

Research and reports are for the consumer, to get a glimpse into a particular industry and feel reasured that there are rating and compliance systems in place. When you are the designer, creator, inventor, producer, etc... you should not be looking at media reports to determine your market direction or your drive. Hopefully you have other customer satisfaction and client feedback avenues in place because by the time it reaches the media it's too late. I knew I needed to do something when I noticed a group of Twitter followers rated poorly because of their use of digital papers; and the final straw was seeing my Sunday paper, which should be the hottest one of the week (according to traditional mind set = expe...

"Southern Hospitality"

is an all encompassing phrase. It says it all and for those who have experienced it, needs no explanation. But for those who have not and for you who have no idea what it takes to live out, here is a brief overview: At a young age through some artificial social environment if not home grown, most people in the south, male and female learn certain rules of etiquette, hospitality and social graces. This is bread into the culture and happens at most levels of society to some degree. Society and civilization are all about social norms and mores.  It even determines our standards of mental health. But Southern Hospitality (SH) takes social norms to another level of chivalry and charity. You will always...

I'm flattered an honored that my little old domain is now worth $1,195.00. Seriously? So after it was lost through a mishap with OfficeLive mail (yes, we'll call it that for now), I had to go through the actual registrar which was no longer, or not really Microsoft... I probably didn't read the fine print well enough to explain it now. Any who, I was told I could renew for just under $100. I contacted my current domain provider which is GoDaddy and asked if they could recover it. They said sure and it would only cost around $60. I laughed and thought surely I'll find another way to get it back when Microsoft transitions to Office365 (which happens on April 30th, if you haven't made the leap you have 15 days). I don't believe in passin...
