Not Just for the Money but Also What we Become in its Making

I was asked a few weeks ago to give a talk to some bright students who were graduating from the MBA program at Thompson Rivers University (TRU). I thought I’d also include my thoughts here on my blog.

I started with saying that I believe I’ve learned six key principles for achieving entrepreneurial success.

Surprised by some energy consumption trivia

Over the holidays I started to think about how I was going to make a difference in 2010. What would my new year’s resolutions be?

The Google Monopoly – How to Monopolize Google and Market Your Business.

I’ve been trying to think of ways to simplify and better explain marketing a business through Google. How do I cover all of the marketing techniques and considerations? What does it all mean? What should I focus on? Search engine optimization (SEO)? Pay-per-click (PPC) or sponsored listings or search engine marketing (SEM)? Social Media!? Google OneBox? Google local results? YouTube? Twitter? Blogs? Ahhhgh!!%$#@!!
