@mo_flow I've always done meetings in the morning (I like to have them all finished by 1 p.m.) and work in the afternoons. So we're opposites, but tend to work a lot the same.

@Digital_DRK We're only going to give her six hours. We figure that's plenty of time to have the baby. We've all been practicing helping her breathe so she can still work while she's in labor.

@Howie Goldfarb I just found out you can fake your social shares. Did you know that?! Apparently in some of the plugins, there is a "fake shares" box that you can fill in. Say you want to start at 500. You put that number in and then have 670 tweets show up in the box. Makes me shake my head.

@JoshuaJLight LOL! I don't really have to regulate spam with Akismet and Livefyre. About once a week, I have to delete a handful of comments, but those two tools catch the rest. As for comments, I don't know...people are crazy (and fun)!

I am SUPER productive and extremely task-oriented, but I'm not going to lie...this made my brain hurt! When the heck do you have meetings? A good 50% of my day, every day, is filled with meetings. Coaching my team. Working with clients. Presenting to prospects. 


I have found that I'm most productive when I have "need lots of time to do this" and "can do this quickly" lists. Then, when I have 15 minutes in between meetings, I can tackle things on the short list (such as editing guest blog posts). And then, after my meetings are over for the day, I can tackle the bigger stuff. I suppose I probably use a looser version of this for that, but could do better at taking a break after 50 minutes of solid work. I actually set my UP band to buzz at me every hour, if I haven't moved, and I tend to ignore that when I'm in the zone.

@JohnMTrader I just had a very nice email from someone in Switzerland who said she loves our blog. But I think that's still reaching those who speak English and through the normal tools. We don't have any readers from Asia, for instance. So this is a great point!

I am a business owner who hires people from every generation. Here is what I have discovered about Millennials: If you set the rules, tell them what they are and what you expect, they will succeed. If you leave it loosey-goosey and let them decide how to work, they will falter. Not saying everyone in this age group will, but that's been my experience. The other thing that drives me absolutely insane are the Millennials who have to have their parents help them negotiate their salary or their promotion. That is the first step on your way out the door...and everyone here knows it. I'll never be IBM that creates a place for parents to have a say in their child's career and I'll never be Grey and separate the younger generation from everyone else. What I will do is listen to their challenges and concerns, collaborate for better ways of doing things, and make everyone who works with me live by the same rules.

@belllindsay Right!!? The other thing that drives me crazy is having to search for your social media icons so I can tag you when I share your content. I'd be willing to bet I'm on the few who will actually take the time to try to find them before tweeting something.

@belllindsay I don't think he is. I've read a ton about what's going on (and have been reading the FB feeds of those close to it) and I don't think he had anything to do with it. What is slimy is our (human beings) need to assume people cheat when they do well. Of course, I maintained Lance Armstrong's innocence until the end, so what do I know?
