Some days it's really hard to "rise above" the negativity. Someone shared a meme with me not too long ago that said "focus on what you love, not what you hate" and it stuck. I really do try to avoid the negative mess that inevitably pops up into our stream. I am so glad you were inspired to share your "10" and we have a bit in common as probably does anyone else who reads yours. Thanks for sharing and being you. :)
I think Visa's effort will fail, but the good news is it will create opportunities for many of you down the road. :)

I (begrudgingly) signed up for this webinar. ;)
I came by to look at your author bio and imagine that, I came across this. :)
I know it's your job to measure things, everything. I wonder though, in hindsight, how much those incremental (failures) steps did to contribute to the customers you've acquired or detracted from it. Have you looked at the paper trail to see if there were people who just always bought whatever was offered? Did they become clients of AD?
I also wonder what role perception plays on these buying decisions. I know it's easy to ask people where they came from, but it seems like a longer conversation and your measurement skills probably can tell a pretty amazing story. I'd be very curious to know.

Glad you are back to the center of the universe with a fresh perspective even if it is from France. ;) Kidding aside, I am so happy for you and Mr. D taking the time to do this. I know it feels impossible at times...
In honor of you I am going to close my Social/Personal browser and leave only the work browser open. Baby steps.
@HowieG @jasonkonopinski who let that leak? That is my signature move. Damn.

@HowieG when @belllindsay asks you to do a Webinar, you don't say "hey, I am a radio show host!" you say, yes ma'am.
Glad to be of assistance to you, regardless Mr. House Muzak.
@jeanniecw @RebeccaTodd with good reason Jeannie. The problem would not exist if people had been better parents.

I think I need a copy writer, hah - where = when, I think. Speaking of where, where is @jasonkonopinski when you Ding-Dang need him?
I am glad you are continuing to write about this issue. I will say what I have always said with a twist. Nontraditional gender involvement in all things will improve the quality of everything. I would happily debate this with anyone who disagrees with that assertion. I truly long for the day where we are oblivious of gender, ethnicity, religion, socio economics, etc... I resent the way we are conditioned to analyze and categorize one another. We are fearful and judgmental creatures by nature and while there is a logical reason for it to a degree the real manifestation is complete overkill. The bottom line is we have a lot to overcome and anyone working to improve that has my support.
