I recently read an article by Anthony Robbins whereby his most recent insight really wasn’t exactly earth-shattering at… but his views on the concept was dead on the mark.
Basically, Robbins points to the fact that in all our lives, we receive and process countless amounts of information daily; and each and every one of us will process this information differently.
We share a message from Rick Spence that gives us insights into how Steve Jobs used simplicity as a weapon to make Apple one of the most iconic brands in the world.
We live in an age of frightening complexity. The average instruction manual, user agreement, restaurant menu or TV program guide contains more turgid detail than ever before. Who will save us from rampant complexity?
How about Steve Jobs, or rather his former creative partner Ken Segall — the man who coined the name “iMac.” As a creative director for an ad agency who worked closely with Jobs at both Apple Inc. and NeXT Computer, Segall has just written a book called Insanely Simple: The Obsession that Drives Apple’s Success.
Well, we’re probably a little tired of hearing the term “Customer Service’’.
Whether is the local fast food restaurant of the latest big box store, we are inundated with the term. But what does it really mean, and as a business owner, what do you need to take away from this discussion?
Let me address the issue from the perspective of what Customer Service isn’t.

News is often defined as “Newsworthy information concerning recent events and/or occurances, often as reported by news media”.
But what makes news, and particularly your news, newsworthy?
A list of five key elements, defined below help us determine newsworthiness. When an editor is left to determine suitability of an item, they will measure it against these criteria.
Putting yourself out there and doing an investor pitch can be incredibly challenging, and just a little nerve-wracking!
You’ve probably waited more than two-to-three minutes for your coffee to be served by your local barista. It may seem like a very short span of time, however when you’re in the line of fire of your potential investors, asking for their money to support your idea, two minutes can (and often does) seem like an eternity!
Remember, the investors may not know you, or your product or service, or even your concept, and you are likely competing against other investment ideas… plus myriad other agenda items scrolling through their heads as you prepare to address the individual or group.
So, here’s how to make every second count.
