Hey You Pt 2

In the previous post I advised an additional number of readers (i.e. you ;-) ) that this blog was inactive.

Today, the no of subscribers DOUBLED?

Are you a robot? Or are you sending e a message?

Seriously - contact me via this site (subscribe there; that would be really nice) - if you are real.

But I am really going to stop.... really.

Hey you...

Hi folks

I noticed a spike in subscriber numbers and you are the intended recipient of this post.

This blog is/was a bit of a personal blog with rants & raves that are a bit 'contrarian'. I have not regularly blogged here because I 'chickened out'. I did not want to risk saying something that might offend someone - if that someone was a client or potential client. And since I work for myself, the 'image' created by this blog would obviously influence the brand we are trying to create elsewhere for our business.

I do the ocassional 'interesting' post HERE - and I would love you to subscribe, but to be honest, you will get more out of it if you are interested in marketing/retailing and the world of entrepreneurship.

Sorry to disappoint you, but please try the other blog:-) if you are interested in those topics.

Consultant's Friends: 1 & 2

1. Lapse in corporate memory.
2. Staff turnover.

Being diminished

I can't recall ever having met, or knowing someone who has not been diminished by participating in the being of a Corporation.

Even as people are promoted... they are criticised in some way. Some type of change is always required, from everyone. And what is perfectly acceptable (even admired) behaviour today, is out of favour tomorrow.

It is especially evident when you separate from the organisation. Those who are diminished the most often take the lead in unraveling your legacy.

Who is there that has never hand 'an issue' to deal with? No one, methinks.
