This is the usual time for companies to whom you have been soliciting all year, and haven't closed, complete their budgets for the following year. This year, for many businesses, it was extremely difficult to get to here. Some companies didn't, and we empathize with them, and wish we could do something to help. But many businesses may still be on the cusp of not being here on January 1, 2010.

So, as a 'treat' from White Mountain Marketing Associates, let me offer my best advice for… Continue

This discussion is extremely important. If you do not know whether you differentiate, or if your differentiation is, in fact making a difference in your ability to gain and retain accounts, then perhaps there needs to be more concentration in the way you craft and deliver your message(s).

Perhaps you are saying the same things other companies in your vertical are saying.… Continue

Colliers Market Report 3Q 09: Houston Office Market Challenged by Job Losses

Houston's office market indicators continued to slip on both a quarterly and year-over-year basis as demand for office space eroded against the deepening effects of the global economic recession. With commercial real estate a lagging indicator, office market fundamentals are expected to continue weakening in the subsequent quarters even as some economists see a bottoming out of the global economic recession.

The primary challenge to the local office market remains Houston's weakening… Continue

As with the previous quarter, national office vacancies kept… Continue

For All The Women - "Unwrap the Gift!"

Today is an auspicious day! It's the day we need to "unwrap the gift". And we are the GIFT!

Yes, each of us is a gift. A gift to each other and a gift to the world!

You may be asking yourself "how is that so?" And you may scoff a wee bit at even the thought of that being so. After all, we're women and "gifts" are things. You know, something inside a box that sparkles; or is practical and something we think we need. After all, our entire lives, we been led to believe that a… Continue

16 Things NOT To Do At A Networking Event

1. Dress with your pants halfway down your butt or wear a see-thru blouse (thong underwear is allowed, as long as nobody knows but you)

2. Eat anything with that has to be eaten with fingers (‘cause then you have to wipe them on your clothes before you shake hands)

3. Eat anything that may get stuck in your teeth, tastes like onions or garlic, or can spill on your clothes (this reminds me of me)

4. Get drunk on your ass and try to pick up women

5. Get… Continue

Children of War

People find it troubling when crimes are committed by young people, most likely minors. It is a sad fact that today’s youth are becoming more involved in violence than ever before, especially those in countries torn by war.

Children’s rights question those children in war stricken countries. As the law asserts, they must be given proper attention in difficult times such as these. It is in these situations that children are separated from their families, forced to be hold guns as… Continue

In Search for the Right Attorney at Law

Choosing a qualified lawyer needs total attention to the specialization he or she handles and the credibility in terms of performance inside and outside the court. There should be no flaws in accordance to getting the right lawyer. Having such would jeopardize the totality of a case representation and the credibility of the client’s stand on court.

Lawyers have their own specialization. Most common lawyers are those handling cases on real estates and divorce. Business establishments… Continue

Inspirational Fashion Design From The Tudors

I was at the Texas Renaissance Festival this weekend, a great event. I’m lucky enough to have an extremely talented wife who can make costume and dress from that era from scratch. I love the fashions and style from the Renaissance and Tudor era. Not only do the women’s dresses look remarkable, it’s also an era in which men’s clothing was also ornate and eye catching. I’ve spoken regularly about the need for web designers to seek… Continue

The Exaggerated Genius Of Benetton Advertising

The excellent Abduzeedo blog featured a showcase of Benetton adverts today. The introduction talked about the creativity, talent and courage of the adverts, and called them awesome and controversial. It’s a good showcase article, but I think the supposed brilliance and controversy of the ‘United Colors’ campaign is vastly over exaggerated. Benetton might have made a heavy impact in 1986, but that impact has long since been… Continue
