The Blog

A journal is a constant reminder of how fast the days are going and that I need to make some progress towards my goals every day because the days are numbered and we don’t know how many we have left. The biggest goal of the blog is to stay connected to my network and provide a way to connect other than Social Media.

Yelp Adds Health Inspection Data for Restaurants

By |2018-07-28T10:32:27+00:00July 28th, 2018|Social Media, The Blog|0 Comments

I am no fan of Yelp and have been advising the public for years on how to deal with Yelp without having to actually deal with them. The strategy has been working for me and many others businesses that I consult with. This new strategy by Yelp just reinforces the fact that their business model is not working and they have to up their game. I am not sure how this one will work out, only time will tell. I personally think Yelp should be held liable for LIBEL and SLANDER if the information on the Yelp site is not updated timely.

How to Follow Trump on Twitter via SMS

By |2017-10-12T13:34:35+00:00June 29th, 2017|The Blog|0 Comments

At its core, twitter is a text messaging service all phones have access to. If they ever went back to that they would kill Facebook because Facebook is web-based. Everyone has text messaging, even boomers with their older flip phones. But twitter will never listen to me. Anyway... Here is how to setup your twitter account to receive tweets from any account via SMS.

Working with Millenials can be a Challenge…

By |2018-03-05T06:50:46+00:00December 28th, 2016|Technology, The Blog|0 Comments

Through no fault of their own, Millenials have suffered from bad parenting skills. Growing up with instant gratification, being told they are special and that they had to follow their passion, make an impact or have a purpose in life, Millenials arenot finding instant life or job satisfaction. These concepts were taught throughout a Millenials childhood by both parents and society and has made Millenials ill prepared for the corporate world. It will take strong leaders to address this problem but only if they can identify it. It is something I am constantly aware of with Mellinials, especially after beating my on Social Media addiction.

I added an original Mac Mini 1,1 to my little collection of Macs. This particular model is 10 years old. I acquired it a few weeks back and decided to see if I could go breathe some life into an old Mac as a backup to my other macs. You can easily find Mac Mini's on eBay for less than $100. Here are a few of the things you can and cannot do on Mac's today as opposed to 10 years ago...

A Millennial Recognizes Their Generation Sucks

By |2016-08-24T11:41:59+00:00July 5th, 2016|The Blog|0 Comments

Millennials are the worst. I should know — I am one. At 26, I’m stuck in the middle of the world’s most maligned, mocked and discussed age group. And I hate it. Imagine being forever lumped into a smug pack of narcissists who don’t just ignore the past, but openly abhor anyone and everything that came before them.
