Original Thought of the Day: Don’t be a Lemming!



Each day I watch others re post and re tweet as well as copy and paste Ideas and Quotes from others thought to carry more weight than yours. My advice is to avoid acting on things that other people say and concentrate on coming up with your own ideas. I find myself purposefully filtering all the useless information that people feel compelled to post and re post.

My Original Thought of the Day is: don’t be a Lemming, find the value in the experiences you have and differentiate yourself from the standard run of the mill posting and re-tweeting that you see today.

ProBizMix Keeping pace with Innovation



I wanted to let you know that @ProBizMix was accepted as a member of the Atlanta Tech Village in the Enclave of Buckhead / Atlanta Georgia. ProBiz has been around @Salesforce from the start and kept pace with dramatic Innovation as the AppExchange ecosystem has grown and matured just to find that the DNA from Salesforce as well as the incubation of new technology startups has fostered an even greater pace of Innovation!

I harken back to the day when Dave Cummings called me to see if I wanted to improve my Marketing Automation capabilities and offer it to my clients if I liked it :-) Well @Pardot was born and I used the tool at my firm and offered it to  many of my customers as well, who were extremely satisfied! As the story goes, Pardot gets acquired by Exact Target and ultimately Exact Target gets acquired by Salesforce.com

As a Compassionate Capitalist, Dave poured his heart and soul into Atlanta Ventures and The “Atlanta Tech Village” to pay forward and give people the opportunities that are now available through him! The mayor and many congressmen have visited the “Village” and come away with many provocative thoughts and praises for what’s going on here!

I’ve been working with Kevy, Rivalry & Salesloft in their early stages and would love to share some of the positive experiences I’ve had in the village. The┬ámission is to support and inspire entrepreneurs to achieve success through a community that promotes faster connections between talent, ideas and capital. There are over 160 companies collaborating today, so visit virtually at www.atlantatechvillage.com and let me know if I can introduce you to someone in the Village or just get you connected!
