  • Tactics for Getting Found, Google Edition
    OK, time to ‘fess up: you aren’t giving enough thought to your business’ tactics for getting found, right? You say you are? You follow all the rules Google makes and your tactics for getting found adhere perfectly to Google’s dictums? What if I told you that wasn’t possible?

  • The Paradox of the Youthful Thought Process
    It’s good to be the king. And while we’d all like to be at the top of whatever pyramids are important to us, for young people there’s something special happening. Youthful Thought Process seems to be all about that. That’s not a bad thing.

  • What Happens When You Talk Too Much ?
    If we met … if you knew me … there’s a distinct possibility that you’d think I talk too much. For me, it’s about transparency and honesty. That said, most people find it endearing for a little while, but sooner or later something flips when you talk too much. I’m pretty sure that isn’t about me […] The post What Happens When You Talk Too Much ? appeared first on Grow Your Business.

  • The Day Pono Died, Neil Young Cried.
    It’s a big no-no for Pono. And while it may not be as monumental as the day the music died, The Day Pono Died is here. Neil Young must be sad. Last week, The Pono streaming service officially died. Given how misconceived an idea the Pono Player was it’s hard to be surprised. Nevertheless, I […] The post The Day Pono Died, Neil Young Cried. appeared first on Grow Your Business.

  • Giving Back via Social Media
    Today, I’m taking a break from cracking the millennials code. Courtesy of one of my Twitter contacts my mind is on Giving Back Via Social Media. I pointed out how unsocial social media is way back in 2009. I believe that more than ever. But maybe it’s because we’re all missing the point. Maybe social media is about […] The post Giving Back via Social Media appeared first on Grow Your Business.

  • Cracking the Millennials Code
    “Cracking the Millennials Code” has been on my mind quite a bit lately. Whether it’s a discussion of how millennials negotiate, the issues that crop up when millennials have job interviews, or the reality that sometimes older is better, millennials are a tough nut to crack. Yes, I’m old. Yes, the millennials closest to me […] The post Cracking the Millennials Code appeared first on Grow Your Busin...

  • Flexing Old Muscles (and when you shouldn’t bother)
    I rarely find myself flexing old muscles any longer. Yeah, that’s a reference to my old-and-out-of-shape reality, but more it’s about looking at an older part of the business me and wondering where he went. Or whether it matters. When I was The Computer Answer Guy, I spent hours each day digging into the guts of […] The post Flexing Old Muscles (and when you shouldn’t bother) appeared first on Gro...

  • Millennials Cannot Negotiate. Why Is That?
    Given our focus on business change, my recent fascination with millennials should come as no surprise. Millennials are the future. Millennials are business change, because one day millennials are going to be older and running everything. But Millennials don’t know how to buy cars. Because millennials cannot negotiate.

  • Uber’s Travis Kalanick is no CEO. Are You?
    Travis Kalanick is no CEO. The thought hadn’t occurred to me until I stumbled across this piece at Wired. I found myself thinking back to Mark Zuckerberg’s earlier days trying to run Facebook. It wasn’t pretty. But then Zuck brought in adult supervision and things turned around. Now Uber’s Travis Kalanick is looking for his […] The post Uber’s Travis Kalanick is no CEO.

  • Matt Mullenweg is a Fool — But Even Fools Do Smart Things
    Matt Mullenweg is a Fool. Hopefully, that WordPress-emblazoned jester’s hat on Mr. Mullenweg’s head softens the “Matt Mullenweg is a fool” blow. Taking that a bit further I’ll point out that the Internet’s oldest and most respected stock tips website uses a similar hat and calls itself “Motley Fool”. So, hey, Matt? No libel here.

  • When Old Computers Work Better
    Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Older People Are Smarter Than Younger People. In most ways, I don’t really think that’s true—despite having said it or something like it many times. I do, however, believe that experience counts for something. Put simply, there are certain things that you can’t understand until you mature.

  • The Most Upsetting Job News About Millennials
    There some REALLY upsetting job news about millennials to report. It has both nothing and everything to do with the idea that younger people aren’t as smart as older people. And it isn’t judgmental about the millennials who might come off sounding bad. It’s about common sense. More, it’s about how common sense gets taught.

  • Evergreen Business Ideas and Sustaining Growth
    In business, you need to always be looking for new ways to get your messages out. One of the ways we do that here is by re-posting old stories to our Facebook and Twitter feeds. The process is automated, random—and sometimes turns up old work that I’m not all that proud of. Other times, it uncovers real […] The post Evergreen Business Ideas and Sustaining Growth appeared first on Grow Your Busines...

  • The Donald Signs Off On The End of Privacy
    Donald Trump is legislating the end of privacy. Like, seriously, THE END OF PRIVACY. And there are both executive orders and bills that go there. And that’s not even the problem.

  • The Right Way and The Wrong Way (and the difference)
    There’s a right way and a wrong way to do pretty much everything. Or … there can be multiple right ways, but you need to identify one and use it. And stay away from the wrong way.

    In two weeks, Donald Trump will officially be the leader of the free world. I use the word “officially” because he’s been treating his upcoming inauguration as a formality since he was elected.
