@PegFitzpatrick It's a great book. It made me realize that there are more options than just the conventional 9-5 jobs. And you're right - we can't possibly spend 4 hours a week on some things like social media. That being said, he has some great insight on reducing noise and workload that I have been trying to implement!

@PegFitzpatrick Enchantment is one of my favourites too. Others on the list: Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, Making Ideas Happy by Scott Belsky, Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss and Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk :)Thanks for sharing yours!
@PegFitzpatrick Yup! I've never asked you before, but what are your top 5 favourite books?
@PegFitzpatrick Love her tips already! I never realized such small things would bring a smile to my face!
Great List Peg! I'm very interested in reading about the Happiness Project.
Thank you so much for writing this post. Very inspiring! It definitely reminds me of Apple in some way.

I agree with most of the points listed above. I've yet to see a compelling reason to use QR codes. In my opinion, QR codes are very similar to website links on print advertisements; it takes time to pull out the phone and input the information. However, QR codes present a bigger problem because we can't really fathom where it will take us. They might take us somewhere that is a complete waste of time - that alone is enough deter people from using them.

Tyler Orcharddogfishbeersteamwhistle Thanks for the prompt reply Tyler! I'm not a big fan of beer myself, but it would be interesting to see how these two companies run their social media campaigns. Thanks for sharing. I'll update you via twitter after following them for a couple of weeks! Thank you Tyler.

Very interesting post. I could see that happening with some small companies that promote themselves via contests / discounts / refer a friend promotions without really engaging their followers. I've been following them for some time and it begins to feel like spam. Aside from all their promotions, the companies do very little to build relationships with their existing and potential customers, and I don't believe they are getting any good results.
On that note, I'm really curious about any companies that are being "good operators". Care to share?
