@JoeCardillo I'm shocked at the number of businesses that still don't have websites. I think many think that a site is cost prohibitive, and yet others don't see it as important. go figure!

@Dave Thompson Thanks, Dave. yeah, I can see that. Even today I saw a similar post with a similar title, but it was five tools that can be very expensive, and are designed to help you run and maintain your online presence. I"m not a big fan of those tools, and I know that most small businesses can't afford them.

@lauraclick I've had success with B2Bs and I think they can do it well. Just because it is harder, doesn't mean it can't be effective. Again, not for everyone, but ALMOST everyone.

@RainbowChazer Ohhh. Good choices. I guess proctologist would be in that category as well.
@John_Trader1 Also a good place to avoid checking into. Do you speak from experience?

@MaryAnnFrancisCowley Very true....
@Sarah Bauer There is definitely a place for more high quality videos, but for small businesses on a low budget, in most cases they can get away with the much cheaper option.

@Lisa Gerber That's a great point, Lisa. I try to do this when I'm out to eat. We tend to jump on wait staff and others at restaurants if things don't go as we like. But I hate to do that if it's just one experience. If I go back multiple times and it's always horrible, then there is a problem. But if it's a first time at a restaurant, how do I know that perhaps the person waiting on me isn't going through a bit of a rough patch. Not feeling well, trouble at home, sick kid, or whatever. We all have off days. We need to show a lot more grace.

I guess I'll weigh in here on this one. I'd heard of all the books you mentioned, with the exception of the 4th one. I'll need to check that out. "Love You Forever" always kinda creeped me out, with the old lady climbing up into her grown sons room to hold him. I dunno. Haha. My choices would definitely include Where the Wild Things Are. I got that very young, and it was actually written a year after I was born, so it wasn't yet the classic that it is now. Another favorite, was The Flying Hockey Stick by Jolly Roger Bradfield. I also was a big fan of popup books which were quite popular at that time, probably because they were newer. I'm sure I could think of plenty of others...

@Rob Trube @lauraclick Yes. The interview and answering questions were sorta rolled into my point about educating and showing them how (because I had to keep to my theme of 5 points!). A lot of options, that's for sure!

@jonnypcraft That is a good idea, for sure!
@lauraclick @ginidietrich That video of hers scares me. I am so glad I do not know the chicken dance.
@PeaceIke OK, so next time you're in town, you can take me out!
