You walk into a store and find a great shirt you want.

The color is just perfect!

You check to see the size and the label says: One Size Fits All.

Jackpot! No hassle trying it out for size! That’s just great! 🙂

Those 4 magic words! One. Size. Fits. All.

Oh, the all-inclusive phrase!

Empowering your team is empowering yourself

Friend: Many companies believe it’s not cost effective…

Me: Care to you explain?

Friend: It takes money and resources to train employees and then chances are at some point they will leave the company and go work somewhere else taking with them the skills and expertise gained. That is why it’s not cost effective.

Cue *mind blown* sound effect…

Ups and Downs, Highs and Lows…

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” — Goethe

Roller coaster rides were my favorite when I was a child.

Oh, the sensation of the adrenaline filled excitement when riding up those tracks to what seemed to be the sky and the gut curling rush when riding down to what seemed to be an endless and fearful competition with gravity that called for a soul confession! 😉

One thing I remember as clear as water and have kept with me as a reminder every time I am contemplating taking an important step, is the fact that after each ride I would swear to anything and everything that it would be the LAST time I would go on a roller coaster ride! Which of course, wasn’t. 

I would take a deep breath and jump back in – to the ups and downs, highs and lows.

Why?

Be interested, invested and engaged!

 “We need to stop interrupting what people are interested in and be what people are interested in.” – Craig Davis, J. Walter Thompson

 

I see many people wondering, how they can get their audience to be more interested, invested and engaged with their content? What captures the audience’s attention and makes them click, read, convert and share?

It is a legit concern. One that makes you think of the why’s and how’s.

Is it the target?
Is it the goal?
Is it the method?
Is it the content?

The world that is a leaf…

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree”

– Emily Brontë

“One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty.”

– Paul Outerbridge

 

Good vibes only and have a great day!

For Inspiration, look within you…

“Photography is a love affair with life.” Burk Uzzle (1938)

As I was thinking what to write about today I was reminded of the fact that inspiration is not born in a moment, but carried within.

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I also believe that Inspiration is in the soul of the beholder.

There is no definition, there is no rule, and there is no structure.

There simply is, inspiration…

Plant the seed

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

We have all been there.

We all have a vision – a goal in our business (and life) that we want to achieve.

We want to create, to serve, to succeed and we want to do it now!

We prepare ourselves, put in the work, the months go by and we get anxious to reach the results we expect.

That’s when reality hits…
