In this economy listen to Grandpa

Things are tough and people seem under more stress than ever.  Tempers are short and emotions high. Here are some not-so random thoughts

“Progress always involves risk. You will never make it to second base with your foot firmly planted on first”

“Do the right thing, it will amaze your friends and confound your enemies”

“Don’t let negative people determine your agenda”.

“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”

“Smile – It will make people wonder what you are up to!”

And Remember

PEACE and Fortitide

How to be a success on the internet… listen to grandma

 

Grandma’s advice:

  • In life you will get what you give.
  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
  •  The best relationships are Win – Win
  • Live life with passion

How it applies to Internet Strategy:

  • Your actions now predict what kind of future you will have….
    • Get involved and participate in the discussion
    • The most valuable thing you can give people is time – interact with your employees & customers.
    • Be sincere in your internet communication
    • Feedback is very important…. Even if it is negative
  • Act with integrity
    • Throw hard at the issue not at the person
    • Praise in public and admonish in private
    • Speak kindly about your customers and they will talk kindly about you.
    • Don’t cheat, or lie to get your way
  •  Develop mutually beneficial relationships with your employees, vendors and customers. The best things happen when everyone wins
  • Let your passion show – Rekindle the flame for what you do
