Say Something Nice

By Ron Rosenberg

Ron Rosenberg - It's Important to be Nice.

In all of our efforts to share the most cutting-edge and technology-rich marketing solutions, we sometimes forget to talk about some of the basics, including the incredible power of interpersonal relationships.

One of the most important considerations in making purchase decisions is the simple fact that people do business with people they like. I know that other factors such as price, quality, and availability are all important, but frequently people make their choices based on "gut feel" and a more...


What You Put in the Frame...

We received a wonderful holiday gift last year: a Nikon D3300 DSLR camera.

This has proven to be a great asset for our company since it lets us produce amazing videos to share our business-growth strategies and promote our products and services.

But even though it shoots video, it's primarily a "still" camera and takes high-quality pictures. This has been fun for me because as a child, I dabbled in photography using my father's Pentax Spotmatic-F 35mm camera, and a darkroom a neighbor had set more...


Swimming Every Day!

I started training in karate back in college, and on several occasions, we had the great opportunity to train with Okinawan Master Angi Uezu during his visits to the United States.

Although his English was limited, he was an outstanding teacher - knowledgeable, passionate about his art, and extremely funny.

One thing he said constantly was "You must train each day, each day." This is good advice I have tried to follow - both in my karate training and in my life in general.

Mastery is an important concept, but one that is difficult to define.

There are guitarists like Pat Metheny, Don Ross, and Billy McLaughlin who have such an extraordinary connection with their music that all you can do is sit and stare in complete amazement as you watch them play.

One characteristic of mastery is that it allows a person to do something difficult and complicated, while making it seem easy and effortless.

And it presents itself in many more...


Can I See Your ID?

ATL Term E Restaurant

I've been traveling lately, and that means trying to eat healthy while connecting through airports to get to my destination and back home again.

Fortunately, there are usually a couple of options, and I found this restaurant in Terminal E at the Atlanta Airport. As a bonus, I enjoyed not only a good meal, but also a great lesson in customer service.

I had a long layover, and it was dinner time, so I grabbed one of the "patio"tables outside the restaurant more...


Be Thankful

I recently conducted an interview with Lisa Ryan, founder of Grategy, a company that shows people how to use gratitude as a business strategy.

She also provided some pointers on how we can incorporate gratitude into our personal lives on a daily basis. This certainly came in handy as we've had to deal with some bad news recently. They say that "good things come in threes," but for us, it's been a case of "bad things come more...


When "Done" ISN'T Better Than "Perfect"

But there's been one person who's been closely associated with SNL for all but six seasons of the show's long history: co-creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Since the show is performed live, there's a very hard deadline for when everything has to be ready. In fact, years ago he beautifully summarized this in a sign that he placed right near the more...


Tribute to a Rock Legend

I'm a child of the 70s, and I grew up listening to bands like Pink Floyd, The Who, Yes, Genesis, and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. These were innovative bands, blending incredible creativity, virtuoso musicianship, and a willingness to break new ground musically.

Unfortunately, the last few months have seen the departure of many of our great musical icons: David Bowie, Glen Frey of the Eagles, and Chris Squire (bassist and founding member of the band "Yes").

And this this last weekend, we suffered a major loss when keyboard great Keith more...

"Saturday Night Live" has been on the air since 1975. It's had its ups and downs over that time, with the cast regularly changing over the years.

But there's been one person who's been closely associated with SNL for all but six seasons of the show's long history: co-creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Since the show is performed live, there's a very hard deadline for when everything has to be ready. In fact, years ago more...


Is It Okay to Waste Time?

By Ron Rosenbergdont waste your time phrase handwritten on chalkboard vintage precise stopwatch used instead of O

We hear it in various sayings: "Time is money," "You can't get back lost time, " and "When people waste your time, they're stealing your life."

There are some things in life that can be replaced, but time is not one of them; and the older you get, the more significant this becomes.

When you think of life in terms of a giant hourglass, as you get older, more and more of the sand shifts from the top part to the bottom, making more...
