Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on.  This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton.  Please send it to everybody you know who has Access to the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail titled:

If you open the file, a message will appear on your screen saying: "It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful....'

Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC.  And the person who sent it to you will gain access to your Name, e-mail and password.  This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon.  AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the antivirus software's are not capable of destroying it.

The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself 'life owner'.

Brief Thoughts on Marketing

In these times of tight revenue streams marketing has become more important than ever. Many misunderstand marketing or abuse the science behind human behavior to exploit others. They believe it is the art of convincing people to buy things you want them to have. Convincing them to spend money on items they do not need. This is not how to build a sustainable business or brand.

Marketing should be instead about finding out what people want and/or need and then educating them on how they can obtain these items or services. This will create sustainability. People speak of identity and branding and yet fail to address integrity and authenticity which in business are as if not more important. Would you rather have large sums of money money one time or multiple streams of sustainable cash flow because you are solving a need?

The question at hand is what sort of business are you running? What are its core values?

Just as a good consultant looks for what their client needs and find a way to supply them a good marketing or sales person does this with the good and services they source.

New payment policies - Monthly retainer

Over the past 2 years my friends and family have warned me to watch out for people trying to screw me. Sadly their words have proven true more often than not. As a result Effective Sept 1 new policies and rates are going into place. Long term contracts are now $85/hr. All other work is a min of $100/hr and all clients will be converted to a monthly prepay retainer depending on past business. With smaller clients paying $100/mo and medium paying $400-$1000/mo in advance each month. If payment is not received no work will be done.

I apologize for anyone this affects adversely however too many have opted to not pay their invoices or monies due in a timely manner and while I dislike having to make this adjustment I must put personal feelings aside and get people to understand that payment is required for any service rendered.

Trey is dead

Words cannot express the loss I am feeling over my friend.

Please keep his family in your words.

Our mutual friend posted words about heartbreak in his blog

Instead of trying to express how I feel or convey the sense of loss let me instead share Trey in his own words:
He was a brilliant man a little before his time.

I think what hurt me the most is watch how some are using this tragedy to profit - shameful!

Please keep his family in your prayers! The world lost someone who cannot be replaced and is a little less bright without him!
