TODAY’S STORIES

Editor’s Thoughts | Resignation in Color | Myers-Brigs Baack in Style | Quote of Day | One Sentence, Saves Hours | Website of the Week (Fall Foliage) | Events | Good of Order


Editor’s Thoughts

This week will consist of around three maybe four in person meetings. We will see what the totals are at each. The last ones had less than 10 in them. Still rather a cautious crowd. pmv

Resignations Can be Colorful

Seems like you hear of folks quitting every day. And many mau not have a plan of future action, they just know they have had enough, There are some interesting moves that some have made in their departure. The old adage, ‘do not burn bridges’ is lost on some of these folks.  And perhaps its not a bad thing if there is indeed a plan, but don’t count on those old boses to be the new customer for whatever venture is undertaken. 

TODAY’s DAY OF…

Seems there are like 7 Days of things on this day, I pick High Five and Hug Day as the pick of the litter. 

 

Myers-Briggs Testing is Back

The Myers-Briggs testing is making a comeback. It looks like some places do want to check out your personality before they hire you. Is that a good thing? Who knows, but the test itself has been around a while and is often looked to check folks out. Except that often it was after a hire, not before. 

One Sentence, Hours Saved in Email

You read here, well ok  on Inc, but apparently adding this one sentence to every email will turn into a huge time saving move. Let me know if it works. 

Website of the Week

Fall foliage is a favorite event to view. As the leaves turn color we are often amazed at the bright colors that sometimes happen. The big disappointment is when we miss it. Sometimes these time periods happen within mere weeks as the climate turns quick. Once the leaves fall that is it. The map on on this interactive website is pretty cool and shows the map of the US and turns the regions the various colors projected dates in 2022.

I know, such problems we should all have. BUT, it seems tha the new King of England has a few too many palaces. I’d be happy to take one of his hands and have a few friends who I am sure would also help out or friends across the big pond to the east. Hey, maybe some are in Canada or Australia where living is pretty cool also.

coffee ice cream

Coffee Ice Cream Day

Coffee Ice Cream, yes in my top five favorite flavors, may actually be in the top three. And as I love ice cream, a food group, I needed to mention it as a separate item. And while there are versions of mochas and the likes, the simple coffee ice cream is the tops.

Macademia Nuts

Macadamia Nuts Have Their Day

Today is the day for these delicious nuts. My father enjoyed all nuts. He would sneak a can of peanuts or cashews or well any nut into his office. He would also get nuts for Christmas. Mom wasn’t always pleased but it was one of his private indulgences. Celebrate today by getting you some of these, or giving some to a friend, they will like you a bit more.

Also remember these are often part of ice cream flavors and various pastries. Share any experiences you may have had. Read more details on this delicious treat.

National Burnt End Day, a new way to consume barbecue.



 

The Niche Landing Page
The niche market that you want to be in should also have it once niche landing page. The more you focus, the more your customer is apt to buy. There are a number of steps which can be done to ensure this happens. The article goes into a few AND also if you need help narrowing to that niche I am there to help also. 

Five Market Research Tools
Each one of these tools has its pros and cons, which are outlined in the article. Also the cost of each. I would recommend a read over and then lets chat to see which may be the best for your setup. Also, a number of new products include similar tools. It is becoming a crowded field. 

Website of the Week
Ever ponder on how long animals sleep? This is an excellent article looking at the napping nature of many furry critters. And some insights on why they sleep, in many cases, as much as they do. Snooze along here.

Good of the Order
You probably knew this, or it made sense, but being around water is really good therapy for our brains and general well being. A great article that goes into some depth on why this is an important matter and we should consider it when moving or just deciding on vacations or even our permanent home.

JPG v RAW (again)
At some point this debate will be over. Right? Sigh, I doubt it, especially as new sites, apps and more come about with the abilities to read ‘photo’ files. Also all the uses of these files, or maybe better said the ‘diminished’ use or need for higher and higher resolution. There’s a debate in itself. Enjoy the read

Editor’s Thoughts
Taking inventory of your social presence, heck online presence should be a regular event. And it should not just be done once a year, or even twice. Also updates such as headers, photos and even product  or service descriptions should occur at least every other month. Your competition is doing that, you should also.

Eight New Socials to Look At

Buffer, the scheduling app that helps you organize and then schedule your posts across many platforms introduces us to eight new social places to look at. Each of these has a fairly specific purpose or audience. It is well worth taking a look to see if any are a fit. Article is here.

Website of the Day

You have to like a place that offers bees sanctuary and does it in a very peaceful way. Take a look here. 
The Japanese Shrine Creates a Custom Water Sanctuary for Bees To Stay Hydrated. We don’t often think of bees drinking water, or needing to as they buzz around our plants. This place serves that purpose. 
Actually the entire website has many great pages and inspirations. And is my website of the day
