This presentation was from a talk I gave last week to our sales representatives. The purpose was to introduce them to some of our strategy for social media and show them that we didn’t need internet memes to go viral. We already had something viral happening!



  • Seth Godin on the most important question you can ask in your business here .
  • 10 abandoned roller-skating rinks (roller-skates included!) here.
  • Phil Cooke gives us some tips on 4 important keys for fundraising videos.
  • Lemony Snicket, aka Daniel Handler, on how to get your kids excited about reading.
  • A guide to social media etiquette from Jane Austen.
  • Bewildered about what to do with Linkedin? Here are 8 tips on developing your profile.
  • Everyday I get my news updates from Dave Pell’s “NextDraft:  The Day’s Most Fascinating News.”

I can confirm that as much as someone might call you a guru or expert, the process of getting called those terms and actually getting paid to do it because they believe in you are two different things. I suggest having stories, numbers, and case-studies to back-up your work.

It seems we have a long history of creating distractions that draw attention away from art. What are your dancing rabbits?
