Who Was Your Yoda?

Recently I sat in my therapist’s office all ready to bark at the moon and lay blame for all my issues on my mother, the kid that aimed at me in dodge ball and possibly Nixon. But the session turned into a warm and fuzzy remembrance of the man who turned my life around.

 

In high school we had a…

Escape from The Planet of the Social Media Apes: The Burnout

The joints of their knuckles ached. Their wrists were stiff as the first sign of primate related Carpal Tunnel Syndrome waged war on their usually limber joints. Many of the Apes had gone to be fitted for reading glasses as the hours spent in front of computers had taken its toll. The hunt for those filthy human pests,…

Rise of the Planet of The Social Media Apes

We are all familiar with the Planet of The Apes storyline yes? How the apes evolve, take over the planet, enslave man and, as we saw in the first 5 movies, they lived a very technologically free existence. Now comes the new updated movie “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and my question becomes; since we have changed so much…

BECAUSE Pt. 2: Beatles, Customer Service & Biz, Oh My!

I believe that everyone should work as a waiter at one point in their life.

Not because the money is pretty darn good or because you get one shift drink that can turn into two or three if you are good chums with the bartender. Rather, they should become a waiter to learn the true value of great customer service and its rewards.

It worked for me and I can say, with no ego but…

So, I'm on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale Florida this week and had no laptop to write my blog, so, I did a video blog instead. I did have an HP Notebook but I may as well have been on a 1st model of the Bell telephone!

So, my subject was on what?

On customer service standards in Florida of course! Tune in. Tune on. Turn to your video screens!

Pursuing Your Passion

 

 

Pursue your passion. I suppose this is an overused cliche.    If we’ve heard it once we’ve heard it a thousand times.  Come to think of it every cliche is overused.  Isn’t that the very nature of a cliche?  How many times have you heard these cliches - “What goes around comes around” or “Worry about what you can control and let go of what you can’t control” both overused and both cliches.  The reason we’ve heard them a lot is because they are the truth.

 

So…

A Genius Way to Benefit from Offering Free Wi-Fi

As you know, despite it seeming to be a very divisive issue with you, I am in favor of offering free Wi-Fi as a standard part of your business offering; as standard as toilets, seats and electricity.



Having walked the length and breadth of Cork City (Ireland) over the weekend, I can tell you, that not many businesses offer free wi-fi, and those that did weren’t bars, restaurants or… Continue

Bar Owner Fined $13,000 For Open Wi-Fi Network

Alcohol has been blamed for some pretty outrageous things over the years, but this is the first time I’ve heard anyone blame it for copyright infringement.



It’s a bizarre argument to make, but its likely one a UK bar owner will be considering after being handed down an £8,000 fine, which works out to about $13,000 USD after a customer downloaded copyrighted material over the open wi-fi hotspot in the bar.
