Why cynicism sucks

molly published this at 3:00 am

“The light at the end of the tunnel is a train.”

Sarcasm and cynicism are used to mask fear all of the time. Voiced under the guise of humor, cynics throw their verbal rocks from the periphery and never actually put any skin into the game. It’s easy to be a cynic.

If you are a small to medium sized business owner, I’m here to tell you today that your time is limited. I know this will come as an enormous surprise, but there are a finite number of your hours to go around.

You can’t do it all, and I’m guessing you probably don’t want to anyway…

Information Overload

Your company has to be on the cutting edge, so you must read often.

You spend at least 15% of every day (and probably more like 30%+) consuming information — Tweets, Facebook statuses, Pins, Medium Read More…

This is a roundup of apps that I’ve personally road-tested for image manipulation. With the exception of PicMonkey, they are all installed on my iPhone right now.

Go forth and create fun, interesting photos. Just don’t let me catch you putting a “sunset” filter on your plate of salad. Don’t do that.

By Lisa D. Jenkins

It’s not the story, it’s the telling of the story. Last week, I was in the wilds of Idaho, rafting the Main Salmon River of No Return. I left the online world and was completely disconnected from technology; no smartphone, no laptop. I did allow myself to bring a camera and Flip.

What to do if you think you’re a fraud

Liz published this at 3:00 am

It’s my opinion that for entrepreneurs specifically, the fear of being found out is probably stronger than the fear of failure. Also known as The Emperor Has No Clothes Syndrome,¯ the Number One on the Entrepreneurial Nightmare Hit Parade is the dream that you’re walking down the street and suddenly you discover that you are nekkid as the day you were born.
