It is difficult to not be the most likeable person in a crowd, but not all of us are charismatic, and the pace to failure is quickened when a decision is made to be popular. I like the discussion in this article about the focus on process, and let the results somewhat speak for themselves.
Ok, that might have given away a bit too much about my age, but this article about a London Restaurant where you pick your ingredients, etc. seems an awful lot like going to a grocery store. I also hope that “pay by weight” refers to what I pick out, not what I come in at
Here are some marketing tips for companies with smaller marketing budgets. Any time you can increase your exposure without spending a lot of money, I think that is a good thing.
Anyone else get goosebumps thinking about the power on display at a fair and airshow? Since that is a little difficult to put on a blog, how about some cool pictures of planes and associated hardware?
This may not qualify as good manners, but it bugs me a bit that I have to answer the question whether our HP ink (c8842a, c6195a) is OEM (manufactured by Hewlett Packard), as opposed to being a refill. We try to be very clear that our cartridges listed as HP are HP. We list our refills or remanufactured (by ColorLabs) as such.
My difficulty is with the misrepresentation of words like compatible, and equivalent, which provide much more assurance than is actually there. We have a lot of experience with remanufactured cartridges, and their quality across the board has improved through the years, but trying to market those with the name HP attached in large letters, and forcing customers to go through the fine print doesn’t sit well with me.
We hope that you appreciate our being straightforward with what we sell, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
We’ve received word from a couple of sources that HP has announced End of Life for the Q2392A, which is used primarily for aqueous coated stocks. We are working with the original supplier of the ink to Hewlett Packard, and have a few sample cartridges available. Pricing has not yet been finalized, but if you would like to try out one of the sample cartridges, please contact us at email@example.com.
Ok, maybe that isn’t the way to make your company more productive, but it is fun to spout off authoritarian quotes from time to time. There is more scientific evidence that having a little bit of laughter helps the workplace environment … http://www.inc.com/rhett-power/science-proves-what-dale-carnegie-knew-all-along-about-motivation.html
I like how Seth Godin gets his point across. I wish I were better at implementing his ideas.

If we look around, there are many things from our youth that no longer exist, but I do remember the orange roofs of Howard Johnsons while travelling by car around the country. Alas, it appears it is going the way of the payphone (although just a bit earlier than the payphone, I suppose.
Just wanted to let you know that there are some industry rumors floating around about the various types of Aqueous Ink (SECAP Picasso, although that is already discontinued, RENA Easy Ink, HP Q2392A).
If any of it is firmed up, we will pass it along to you, but just wanted to let you know there are some ripples in the water.
