Jump before you are pushed!

Jump before you are pushed!  And if you are pushed, don't forget to say thank you.

Who are you talking to - precisely?

Often the best, most effective, words and sentiments are expressed by a writer who is the same demographic as your audience. 

Addressing FEAR: Installment 1/3

Supposedly there is a chemical that is released into our system when we are exhilarated. This chemical is equivalent to a very expensive and useful drug that can retard or even reverse a set of fatal conditions. Exhilaration is different from FEAR, it’s when our heart is beating and our pulse is racing and we are totally in the moment.

A recipe for success

The DUO.CA process is started by aligning possibilities with strategic outcomes. Example of outcomes: is your product or service viable, is it desireable, does it meet the objectives of triple bottom line [profit, people, planet] thinking?

OWN YOUR STORIES. Strengthen your community. Share through your Blog.

Are you rethinking your social media strategy? And have you been following the Facebook IPO. I believe stocks are trading at $19.28 a piece which is half what they were three months ago. There is a groundswell of Facebook fatigue. Companies and individuals are reconsidering how they spend their time - too much time is spent sensationalizing content to get the most LIKES on Facebook vs. taking time to tell stories, report news, share opportunity on corporate blogs. I forsee an eminent facebook exodus.

Winner of our Canadian Harvest Photo Contest is Andrea from British Columbia.

I was the judge of the top 10 of nearly 100 images entered into the DUO.CA sponsored Canadian Harvest Photo Contest. More than 2,000 votes selected the top 10 photos. I choose Andrea's image of her two sons in their garden because it felt 'of the moment' and because it intuits a story of farming and families. Read on for Andrea's story and to find out why we sponsored this photo contest.
