Do You Practice Active Decision Making?
Many years ago when I was young and callow, I received an invitation to attend a 'Decision-Makers' conference. Trouble was, I couldn't make up my mind whether to go or not. I didn't.

Drop the "T"
I have this cat at home, Brandee, who's the most intelligent cat I have owned. There are times I think she actually understands the words I am saying to her and she responds directly to the point. She sits and tries to figure things out. If she wants something bad enough, she devises a plan to accomplish her goal.

What's the Secret to Repeat Business?
When you think about ways to gain repeat business from your customers, you probably turn your thoughts to marketing efforts such as advertising, public relations and other means that will allow you to repeatedly be seen. However, without one particular element included in your plan, your efforts to entice customers to buy over and over will fail. Even autoresponders - the "king" of repeat exposure - can't produce the type of loyalty needed to ensure your customers continually send their dollars your way.

The New Power Of Advertising
A website is an island. Advertising is a bridge to that island. Large and small businesses online are discovering that truth in a hurry - or else. Advertising is not what it used to be. The internet has changed its purpose and its strength. Rather than making advertising in the traditional media weaker, the net has made it stronger. That's why all guerrillas must be aware of the new power of advertising.

Believe You Can
When you were a child, perhaps you heard the story of "The Little Engine that Could." From what I recall (I haven't read the story in ages!), there was a tiny little engine that had to make it's way up a large mountain pulling many cars of a train. At first, the little engine thought the task was too big. But then it decided to give it a try.

Do You Sell A Necessity or a Luxury?
Products and services are a mixed bag. Some are downright necessities. If my toilet explodes, I need a plumber. If your child wakes up with a high fever, you need a doctor. Raging termites, aching teeth, and lawsuits also require services that are necessities. But most products and services are more luxury than necessity. I often hire a young man to mow my lawn. But if he's on vacation one week, I'll get my out-of-shape self out there and push the mower myself.

Don't Be a Shape Shifter
When I was a little girl, I used to love to play "name the cloud." I bet you played this too. I remember lying on my back in the yard and watching as the clouds passed overhead. As the wind blew the clouds across the sky, the clouds would change shape. It was more fun to play with someone else, because two people could look at the same cloud and see something different.

7 Tips to Avoid Font Conflicts
Among the many things that have changed in design, the instant gratification of adding a new font to my system is among my favorites. Gone are the days when type was selected from a book and an order placed with a typesetter. Now, computer users are able, and required, to download, install, and maintain hundreds of fonts. Problems arise when different users - clients, designers, printers, and colleagues - share files. Each user must have the same fonts (and version) to ensure that the file will be displayed and reproduced properly.

Switching from MS Office to Star Office - Should You?
It's no wonder that interest is increasing in alternatives to Microsoft. Many of Microsoft’s loyal customers are scratching their heads over the new licensing plan that requires an annual fee from product users. In return for additional fees, customers have the opportunity to purchase support agreements at reduced rates. Not only are "purchasers" suddenly transformed into "subscribers," but they must also commit to purchasing upgrades far in advance. Does that seem fair? Quite a few Microsoft customers don’t think so. And it’s pretty clear why they don’t – not only do they need to purchase software, but now they have to pay to use it every year, and as a reward they get a discount on a service they more than likely don’t use anyway.

Consumer Protection on the Internet
While we're on the subject of giving out credit card information on the Web, don't ever give out your credit card number through e-mail. Sending e-mail is just like sending a post card, with the contents of the e-mail open and viewable to anyone who sees it. Educate yourself! The U.S. Federal Trade Commission offers consumer education information as well as a way to file a complaint online. The FTC doesn't try to resolve the complaint for you. Instead, filing a complaint helps them investigate fraud and could lead to legal action against the company.
