Love the peek inside A.D. team. Thanks for sharing Clay. I´m discovering Asana now. It´s fun.

On this note, Todoist (https://en.todoist.com/business) might be an option for project management.


I´ll stay with: "...you must have the flexibility and willingness to change when the needs of the business call for it." ...and the needs of your team call for it (I´d add).

Thank you Gini for this post. I´m signing up for Matt´s blog and the Moz blog (for the moment). I have Andy´s book and I am reading his blog, so checked! :)

Yes, yes and yes! I love avocado (aguacate in Spanish) and I very much agree with what you say Stacie. 

Finding what you love and doing it is the secret of happiness. Staying in a job, relationship, etc where you are not happy it´s not just bad for your long term health, it´s also stupid!

And just like @Eleanor Pierce said, please share with us: why avocado?

Excellent post Lindsay! Sounds simple, but it´s not. I haven´t listened to the webinar yet. It´s on my to do list for the weekend.

What I can´t understand is how business owners, managers or directors can´t see what´s happening around them. How they insist in behaving like it´s the ´80s???

It´s hapenning a lot in Spain: the golden rule: FEAR!

Hi Unmana! You´re right, Spin Sucks community is the place to hang out.

Since I discovered Spin Sucks (more than two years ago), I became an addict! If I want to learn something new, I go to Spin Sucks. If I want to have fun and meet amazing people, I go to Spin Sucks. Nothing interesting to read? No problem, go to Spin Sucks. I don´t believe there is another blog in the blogosphere where people share their experience and have fun at the same time. 

Oh, and "nice blog post" ;)

Managers vs. Leaders - the eternal battle! 

The best book I read on leadership was Robin Sharma´s: The Leader without a Title". It opened my eyes and unfortunately I could see there aren´t many leaders out there. 

Inspiring people to do things/work, etc is the greatest quality of a leader (in my humble opnion).

Wow, I didn´t know they raised $100 million. That´s great.

"How Can You Handle Going Viral?" Great question, which I am sure not many organizations take into consideration or even think past the viral moment.

@BillSmith3 @ginidietrich @belllindsay I like better Madrid :). There is this "war" between Madrid and Barcelona. They cannot stand each other and I cannot understand why. I know why, but I cannot understand it.

@ginidietrich There is a saying among the European countries: "Spain is different!" :), not necessarily a positive one. 

Including in this respect Spain is different. There is another pace of life and work in general. The only moments when Spaniards are with the "I´m busy badge" are on holidays. You probably know, Spaniards value their free time more than anything else (and they know how to spend it too :)).

If you ask something from a Spaniard, even if he/she is busy, (at work) you might get an invitation to discuss it over a coffee. Anything that starts with a break is welcomed :). 

Seriously though, sometimes is frustrating (especially when you have to meet deadlines), but most of the time you get used to it and learn to enjoy life a little.

P.S: I keep telling @belllindsay that you guys should move to Spain :).

In my experience, "busy" is keyword for: "I don´t want to deal with you right now". It´s hilarious because in most cases, they (the busy people) are the beneficiary of your work. You want something from them to help them, not yourself!

I see a lot of people who procrastinate the work they have to do over and over again. And they are always stressed about the amount of work to do!!! When it´s so much easier, concentrate, get it done (answer the email phone, etc) and get over with.

Apparently there is a competition for complaining. The harder you complain, the faster people let you alone...temporarily.

@belllindsay Well they should be pros. If not them, then who, right? Besides, we are in the exceptional customer service century. With all the information and options available, it´s time for the companies to step up the customer care service.

That´s great Lindsay. I am glad they reacted. Hopefully with your experience they will pay attention to their customer service and improve one thing or two.

I am with you on this: "While it doesn’t take a lot of work to keep a customer loyal, it takes even less work to lose one."
