Social Media Spotlight: LinkedIn

 

There are a lot of people out there with big ideas or great passions but they aren’t sure what to do with them. I wonder how many of these people are on LinkedIn and are active in the groups there. There are endless possibilities for businesses, non-profits, and anyone looking for a job or a cause. Are you LinkedIn? Read more at our blog: Why You Need To Make LinkedIn A Priority

The Evolution of Media

Micah's Musings

Working in social media has given me the opportunity to hear many different people’s perspectives and frustrations with social media. So much in technology has changed but when you think about it, a lot hasn’t changed at all. Once the novelty of something new wears off, where do we stand with the people and things that we value most?  I write more in my latest article: The Evolution of Media

Strength in Struggles

Our stories should not define us but instead shape us into who we most desire to be.

Micah's Musings

The main thing I have learned throughout all of life’s challenges is that details of someone’s ‘story’ are not important. In fact, details of a story can actually do more harm than good. This idea was one of the main reasons I wrote the article, 10 Tips to Happiness. The more we dwell on the details from the past the longer we remain stuck there. The details of how we pick ourselves back up, the people who support and inspire us, the things that make us feel most alive and worthwhile, those are the details we need to focus on. When we see how we overcame past obstacles or hardships we get to know our own gifts and talents, like courage to change an unhealthy relationship or situation or the intelligence and honesty it takes to realize there is something about yourself that needs to change.

As I think back to my many entrepreneurial endeavors that failed (e.g. post mortem of a failed product), several clear themes come to mind.

  1. Not giving it 100% – it’s hard enough to succeed when working on something full-time that entrepreneurs working on an idea part-time are even more likely to fail because they won’t make enough progress to figure out how to make it successful
  2. Premature scaling – resources are scarce so a self-inflicted death is more likely when staff or resources are added before a business model is found (see startups shouldn’t hire a VP of Sales)
  3. Building product in a vacuumcustomer usage is oxygen for…

I’m constantly turning to Google Maps’ Street View when I hear about a restaurant or something I want to check out in New Orleans. And every time, I’m reminded that Google hasn’t updated their Street View imagery of the city since I lived there in 2008. Street View is an amazing thing that Google does, but once they’ve photographed a city, they take on a responsibility to ensure it’s an accurate representation of the place. New Orleans is one of the country’s fastest changing citiesthe country’s fastest growing city, but if someone considering a visit (or a move) there looks at Street View, they would get a terrible idea of its condition seven years after Katrina. I fear that their images are so old they’re now actively hurting the city, and no street view would be better than the inaccurate picture they’re currently painting. I wondered if anyone…
