Self-actualization is an important step in the healthy development of any person. It is beneficial to know your abilities as well as your limitations. It can be dangerous, at times, to not be intimately familiar with your own impediments. Embarrassment may be the outcome in lighter situations, but never should one's last words be "I can jump that," "Aw, it can't be that difficult" or "Hey, watch this." Yes, it is crucial to know yourself in and out, to know who you are and are not, what you can and cannot do. Likewise it is imperative (as a owner, marketer or webmaster) that you know your site.
Let's do a quick review on what SEO is and is not. SEO is not the efforts to help search engines connect potential clients with your website. SEO is the comprehensive ongoing strategy to help connect users with your companies information. As I've mentioned before, that's an important distinction. SEO is not merely web, and it's not primarily about your sight. It's about reaching your potential clients wherever they are. Guess what? They're mobile! OK, maybe not yet, but they will be, and a lot of them already are. If you are looking at any long term strategies, mobile has to be taken into consideration. It can be tough to know what is most important when planning Mobile SEO strategies. What's real? What's fake? What's hype? What's standard? Here's a look at the Top 5 Mobile SEO Suggestions.
There are few things that irritate me more than an e-mail full of staccato! In fact, many e-mail format faux pas drive me bonkers. Please understand that I am not a formatting/courtesy snob. I'm every bit as obstreperous as the next guy, and I don't think that society should hand down dainty decrees to govern what and how I say things in e-mails. I think that different relationships, agendas and media call for different levels of formality. However, I also have a healthy respect for teleology; I'm a designer for crying out loud! The purpose of an e-mail is usually communication, and a poorly structure format rarely communicates the right message.
Albany CEO has been kind enough to do some interviews with me in the past. I thought it might be a good idea to start sharing some of them on here as well. You can access the video and full transcripts here or take a look at some of my other articles and videos.
I recently read a great little book by Wayne Grudem called Business for the Glory of God. It's very short, but it touches on some very important issues for those living in a capitalist society. Where as this book did not contain any earth shattering revelations that morphed my schema or flipped my world on its head, it did contain many key points that I had all but forgotten, never notice or simply ignored with the actual living of my life. If this book didn't already have a subtitle, I would suggest it could be subtitled How to be a Christian Capitalist. Whether that is appealing to you or not, I think it would be a good read for anyone in the business world. I'll take a moment to share my thoughts on the last chapter, "Effect on World Poverty."
