Google Apps is as good as it is bad apparently
May 6, 2010 Jack General

While I love free tools that help to make the small business productive, when they go down it is a solid reminder that paid tools “generally” don’t go down.  While Google Apps Standard (Calendar, Documents, Sites, etc.) seem to be up most of the time, it is sure inconvenient when they go down.  This morning Google Calendar went down not allowing me to sync my Outlook to my Google Calendar to my Iphone Calendar.  Bleh!  While not a major issue, it is definitely inconvenient.

The moral of the story, maybe it is time for me to upgrade to Google Apps for Business

Learning About Purpose from Jerry McGuire
April 13, 2010 Jack General

I came across something a couple of years ago, when researching the word “purpose.”  I forget exactly what for, but for your edification, it was the “Mission Statement” from the Jerry McGuire film.  While a movie with a romantic twist, it was based on the true story of a guy named Leigh Steinberg searching for a change and purpose to his life… But this post is not about Leigh or Jerry.  It is about a person’s search for purpose to help propel him or her into the next steps of business and life.  Read the Mission Statement here and get inspired!

Guy Kawasaki discusses “Ten Ways for Small Businesses to Use LinkedIn:”  http://goo.gl/iAmr The question I have, is who is going to teach the SMB how to use LinkedIn and why they should be using it for their Small Business… I still believe there is a clear disconnect between the SMB, and online technologies to help them be more productive and driving revenue.
