    There's no shortage of interviews with Steve Jobs discussing Apple, or Jeff Bezos talking about Amazon, or Mark Zuckerberg talking about Facebook. These guys are incredibly successful, so they're clearly great sources for advice on leadership, innovation, and hard work. But they're also incredibly successful. They're speaking from a place to which most professionals can't really relate. (When's the last time your company's stocks sold for $120 per share?)

    When things get a little better every day, we take the good news for granted. It takes almost no time at all for the improvement to turn into an expectation and for the expectation to be taken for granted. But when things decay, we can't stop thinking about the loss, extrapolating the pattern all the way to doom, and then living with that doom, long before it arrives. This is a bug in the system of our culture, but that doesn't mean we can't work to hack it.

  • The day the music died: Buddy Holly plane crash probe may be reopened

    Tim Chester
    5 Mar 2015 | 4:09 am
    It's a full 56 years since the famous airplane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper and soon we could know exactly what caused it. On February 3, 1959, a six seater, single engine Beechcraft Bonanza airplane carrying the three musicians plunged into an Iowa cornfield at 270 km/h in awful winter conditions minutes after taking off, killing everyone on board. Buddy Holly, just a couple of years into his stratospheric career, was 22 years old. Ritchie Valens, who had dropped "La Bamba" on the world less than four months previously, was 17. The Big Bopper, aka JP…

  • Labor unions in a post-industrial age

    Seth Godin
    4 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    The us/them mindset of the successful industrialist led to the inevitable and essential creation of labor unions. If, as Smith and Marx wrote, owning the means of production transfers maximum value to the factory owner, the labor union provided a necessary correction to an inherently one-sided relationship. Industrialism is based on doing a difficult thing (making something) ever cheaper and more reliably. The union movement is the result of a group of workers insisting that they be treated fairly, despite the fact that they don't own the means of production. Before globalism, unions had the…

    Too often, we wait. We wait to get the gig, or to make the complex sale, or to find the approval we seek. Then we decide it's time to get to work and put on our show. The circus doesn't work that way. They don't wait to be called. They show up. They show up and sell tickets. When you transform the order of things, the power shifts. "The circus is going to be here tomorrow, are you going?" That's a very different question than, "are you willing to go out on a limb and book the circus? If you are, we'll come to town..." People respond to forward motion. Auctions are always more exciting than…
  • Stupid is the brand killer

    Seth Godin
    2 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    When you make your customer feel stupid, you've given him no choice. He needs to blame you. Some ways to make people feel stupid: Charge different prices at different outlets and shrug your shoulders when you get found out. Insist that the warranty ends precisely the day you said it would.  Give new customers a great discount for signing up, but tell long-term customers that they're out of luck. Make your expensive items less networked, less powerful and less reliable than your cheaper ones. Give your customers a product, idea or service that causes them to be ridiculed or shamed by…
  • Sorry confusion

    Seth Godin
    1 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    There are two kinds of, "I'm sorry." The first kind is the apology of responsibility, of blame and of litigation. It is the four-year old saying to his brother, "I'm sorry I hit you in the face." And it is the apology of the surgeon who forgot to insert sterile dressings and almost killed you. The other kind of sorry is an expression of humanity. It says, "I see you and I see your pain." This is the sorry we utter at a funeral, or when we hear that someone has stumbled.  You don't have to be in charge to say you're sorry. You don't even have to be responsible. All you need to do is…

Did you think that everybody couldn’t wait to comment on a job well done? Did you? I know I sure did. But then reality kicked in. In reality, you publish your first article and nobody reads it.

    One of the biggest misconceptions that many bloggers have is that you need MASSIVE traffic to become a full time blogger. We often hear how many hundreds of thousands or even millions of visitors this or that blog has but the reality is that I’ve met many bloggers over the years who don’t have massive traffic – yet who are still making a healthy income from their blogging. The problem is that these bloggers don’t always have the platform to tell their stories and so the myth that you need massive traffic goes on without being busted.

    Guy Kawasaki

    There is a myth that successful companies begin with grandiose ambitions. The implication is that entrepreneurs should start with megalomaniac goals in order to succeed. To the contrary, my observation is that great companies began by wondering about simple things, and this leads to asking simple questions that beget companies: Therefore, what? This question arises when you spot or predict a trend and wonder about its consequences. It works like this: “Everyone will have a smartphone with a camera and Internet access.” Therefore, what? “They will be able to take pictures and share…

    When I was a venture capitalist, I noticed that entrepreneurs whose primary goal was to make money usually failed. This is because this kind of entrepreneur attracts other people who want to make money, and then when the company doesn’t pay out big bucks immediately (and no startup does), these folks look for greener pastures. To combat the problem of ill-suited people pursuing entrepreneurship, experts often recommend rigorous self-examination before starting a company. However, most people  ask themselves the wrong questions: Can I work long hours at low wages? Can I deal with…

    A good business model forces you to answer two simple questions: “Who has your money in their pockets?” And “How are you going to get it into your pocket?” These questions may lack subtlety, but making money isn’t a subtle process. More elegantly stated, the first question involves identifying your customer and the need that she feels. The second question creates a sales mechanism to ensure that your revenues exceed your costs. You’ll tweak your business model constantly–in fact, it’s scary if you don’t change your model or do some major tweaking along the way. Here are some…

    Juli Clover
    4 Mar 2015 | 2:03 pm
    Apple began its efforts to decorate the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco yesterday, putting up the scaffolding that would allow workers to hang colorful banners and logos, and as of today, the first decorations have gone up. Starting this morning, workers were spotted in the basket of a bright orange cherry picker, placing a banner across the glass of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts where Apple will hold a special "Spring Forward" media event on March 9. The initial banner panels, which include Apple's iconic Apple logo, use the same general colors that were seen on the…

  • How Do You Know When It’s Time to Hire Someone Else?

    Chris Brogan
    4 Mar 2015 | 10:09 am
    I was working on the audiobook (long overdue) for my book, The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth and I came to a part of a chapter that might be useful to you. Are you thinking of hiring someone else? Are you a solo business and wondering if you should have a partner? Are you wondering about bringing on someone to tackle the expanding workload? If so, I bet you’re wondering about the process and worrying about what you do or don’t know about it.

  • Are You Getting The Most Out of Your Conferences?

    Chris Brogan
    23 Feb 2015 | 6:35 pm
    I had a wonderful time at Michael Port’s Heroic Public Speaking event. There was a lot of value offered for those who attended. As a speaker, I loved sharing what I knew with the folks who were there. But I also operated as an attendee, listening and absorbing, and also getting what I could out of meeting and talking with other attendees. I had a secret opportunity: almost a dozen people there were friends as well as attendees. So I got a LOT out of my time there. But it made me think. Are you getting the most out of your conferences? There are some great ways to improve your conference…

    I was talking with the ever smart Jeff Brown who does the Read to Lead Podcast (one of my favorites), and we were talking about how podcasting is just booming. Jeff runs a Podcaster Academy. I co-founded PodCamp, etc. It’s a big topic these days. Jeff said that once at his former job in radio, someone said, “You can’t kill radio. No one will ever listen to a traffic report on a podcast.” Continue ReadingThe post You Will Never See Us Coming appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.
  • Remember When I Said I Quit Facebook?

    Chris Brogan
    12 Feb 2015 | 12:04 pm
    A few years back, I quit Facebook. I tried deleting my old profile, but in Facebook, that’s pretty much an act of congress, so I just abandoned it. A year ago-ish, I snuck back on, but decided not to do much in the way of “business” via my Facebook. Along the way, I discovered what I think is the real value of the platform. Facebook Business Value Isn’t What You Think People ask me often about advertising on Facebook. I have no idea. Every time I’ve done it, nothing much happens. Jon Loomer knows better than me. That’s his thing. Continue ReadingThe post…
  • Why I Won’t Stop Blogging

    Chris Brogan
    11 Feb 2015 | 9:31 am
    I started blogging in 1998, back when they called it journaling. My first site wasn’t really blogging software. It didn’t exist yet. A bunch of my sites have been lost to software companies folding. Then eventually, I landed on blogger.com, ported some of those posts to WordPress, made a lot of mistakes, and finally settled into chrisbrogan.com staying on WordPress and staying in the same rough area of the universe (though my focus changes every few years). I won’t stop blogging I love it. I love having a platform where I can reach out to people, share my thoughts and ideas…

  • Why Interactive Content May Be the Most Exciting Marketing Tactic of 2015

    Scott Brinker
    4 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    I’m looking forward to speaking at the Authority Rainmaker conference this May in Denver, Colorado. As a longtime Copyblogger fan, it’s a great privilege, and I can’t wait to meet many of you. The title of my talk will be: How to Design Interactive Content — Moving Beyond Button Clicks and Form Fills. Which begs the question, what exactly is interactive content? Most content that we’re familiar with — blog posts, ebooks, reports, webinars, infographics, podcasts, etc. — is designed to be passively consumed by our audiences. They read, watch, or listen…
  • Dan Pink on How to Succeed in the New Era of Selling

    Jerod Morris

    Selling isn’t what it used to be. And for most of us, that’s a good thing. Gone are the days of alpha males who are “always closing.” Today, in the new era of selling that has dawned, many of us are spending much more of our time selling than we even realize. This is the subject of Authority Rainmaker keynote speaker Dan Pink’s latest book, To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, and he gives us an inside look — describing the tools and traits that are required (many of which you probably have already) — in the latest episode of…

    If you read the headline, “Portland Entrepreneur Raises $13 Million by Enticing 62,000 People to Buy His Cooler,” which part fascinates you? How about, “7,000 Hungry Folks Raise $55,000 for Potato Salad Project?” I imagine, if you’re anything like the majority, those large amounts of money stand out. After all, $13 million is a gigantic amount of cash, as is $55,000 for potato salad. But whenever I come across crowdfunding campaigns like these, it is the crowd of people who band together that captures my attention. As a content creator, imagine what you could…

  • A Brief Guide to Fixing Your Old, Neglected, and Broken Content

    25 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    One of the first steps to creating adaptive content is becoming aware of the content you already have. This is why we encourage you to audit your site. But before you dive into a full-blown comprehensive content audit, it might be possible to make your job a little easier by first dealing with all of the expired content. What exactly is expired content? It’s those old sales pages, obsolete product pages, and other outdated content. The pages you’ve forgotten about in your archives that desperately need some attention. You’ll know where some of this content is off the top of…

The wine world is actively embracing technology, and home enthusiasts can get in on the action as well, using mobile apps to help keep their stash tabulated and organized.Numerous wine cellar management apps are now available, but this is a market that’s still emerging and in flux.

    Apple has delayed the production of its larger-screen iPads, while it works out the final design and features for the product targeted at businesses. The company had earlier told suppliers that it wanted to mass produce the 12.9-inch iPad in the current quarter, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter. Apple has now moved the production to the second half of this year, according to the report. Production of the devices is now scheduled for around September, according to Bloomberg, which said the change was because of delays in connection with the…

    Slowly but surely, the official app stores of iTunes, Google Play and Windows Phone Marketplace have transformed into a digital battlefield. App developers have to fight for recognition or otherwise be drowned in an ocean of competing mobile applications. App store optimization (ASO), a strategy similar to SEO but specifically applied to the app pages in app stores, has become a handy addition to an app developer’s marketing plan, and promises to help increase visibility – and, as a consequence, downloads – of a mobile app. ASO consists of many elements, and should be considered a key…
  • Harnessing Flexbox For Today’s Web Apps

    Karen Menezes
    2 Mar 2015 | 6:18 am
    Although the syntax might be initially confounding, flexbox1 lives up to its name. It creates intelligent boxes that are stretchable, squeezable and capable of changing visual order. It provides simple solutions to layout paradigms that CSS has always struggled with: vertical centering and equal heights. Flex items are truly accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Chris Coyier sums up flexbox2 nicely: The Flexbox Layout (Flexible Box) module (currently a W3C Last Call Working Draft) aims at providing a more efficient way to lay out, align and distribute space among items in a container,…

  • Design Principles: Dominance, Focal Points And Hierarchy

    Steven Bradley
    27 Feb 2015 | 6:52 am
    Has a client ever asked you to make the logo bigger1? Maybe they asked that just after you completed their request to make a heading bigger. The new heading stands out, but now the logo is too small in comparison and isn’t getting noticed. The clients wants to make the logo bigger. Of course, now that the logo and heading are bigger, both are going to attract more attention than the main call-to-action button, which will need to be made bigger. And once the button is bigger, the heading is going to start looking small again. You can’t emphasize everything. It defeats the point. When you…

  • How to Get More Natural Smiles in Child Photography

    Angie Baxter
    4 Mar 2015 | 10:00 am
    A natural smile – the holy grail of child photography. A genuine, heartfelt smile is more than just turning up the corners of the mouth. A real smile radiates from your whole face, and particularly for children, is often felt with the whole body. Not only is a forced and fake smile easy to spot in photographs – we know that wearing a fake smile and having it photographed doesn’t feel too good at the time, and it doesn’t feel great for children either. So while we want to photograph a child’s beautiful smile, we also want them to enjoy the process of being photographed. And…

Even if you are, you may not have thought about how you would use it in real-world situations. Fortunately as DSLR owners, we have the best of both worlds between manual and automatic focusing; we have a choice as to how we decide the subject of our photo, and other points that aren’t as important. This is an advantage for you, and having a better understanding of the “other”…

  • How to Retouch a Portrait with the Adjustment Brush in Lightroom

    Andrew S. Gibson
    3 Mar 2015 | 10:00 am
    You have probably seen several portrait retouching programs advertised in magazines or online, and wondered if they were worth buying. The answer is no. I have tried out quite a few, and the truth is that the Soften Skin preset in Lightroom does just as good a job as any of them. For most photographers Lightroom’s retouching tools all are you will ever need. For high end retouching purposes you can go to Photoshop. It’s worthwhile taking some time to think about your personal approach to portrait retouching. Some photographers seem to like the airbrushed, almost plastic look of heavy…

Anyway, I’ve been running into folks here and there asking about finally making the switch from Aperture and what’s all involved, and a lot of folks didn’t realize that Adobe not only created an importer plug-in, but that it’s now actually built right into to Lightroom 5.6 (and higher) itself.
