The Social Media Obsession

Once every two days someone almost bumps into me because they’re too busy staring down at their smartphone’s screen.

If I go out with a group of people, at least one person spends more time on their phone.

Any mediocre evening can be “enhanced” by taking a few pictures and posting them on social media.

I believe there’s a fine line between the fantastic advantage of being able to reach people easily and becoming so seduced by this new technology that you lose touch with the outside world.

But, then again, balance is not a word we can easily use to define ourselves.

I am curious to know your thoughts on this. Is social media good? Bad? How much time and why should we spend checking out Facebook, Twitter, and such.

Let me know in the comments section bellow.

Interview with Jack Fussell: Raising awareness concerning Alzheimer’s

Here is an interview I did with a man whom I admire tremendously for his mission and the way he dedicates his time and energy to said mission.

1. First of all, tell us a bit about yourself.

Born in Douglas, Georgia in 1950. The one sibling I had passed away due to a heart attack. 6 years in the United States Navy. Two children, a son and a daughter. Divorced for 11 years and we are friends. 24/7 caregiver for my 89 year old mom.

2. You state your mission as “raising awareness concerning Alzheimer’s.” Why? 

I raise awareness because my dad died with Alzheimer’s in 2001. I know that before the government will spend the dollars that “experts” think is needed, they need to know about the problem.

3. What would you like the government to know? Continue reading

The Internet and Art

net-artI believe that right now there are more artists on this Planet, more writers choosing to self-publish or just posting their stories on blogs, more painters selling prints and original artwork on deviantart, etsy, and the likes, more sculptors, more singers and aspiring movie makers trying to get more subscribers on YouTube than ever before.

Review: Empowerment for Aspiring Business Owners

In today’s world you can do one of two things: find a job or start your own business. To become an entrepreneur, you need to know what to expect. You know, expectation is the root of all heartache, and a lot more people give up because of that than are forced to give up.

This is a book I recommend reading simply because it’s short and easy to read. It gives clear advice… you know, common sense stuff that people often don’t know about when starting a business.

The steps detailed in this book are necessary to know in order to become successful. Do your homework, learn, work like hell, advertise, and take advantage of any connection you might build along the way.

Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it?

But it always help to have it written down. Just when you need it the most.

We have a voice to create a platform for us to share the tools we have learned, even being new to the world of business, so that we can grow together. There is always room for improvement.
