Time Shifting

We tried to think of a good tie-in (excuse) to show you this stunning video, but they all sounded phoney. So just think of it as a little present from us to you to say thanks for stopping by. (Click the four point icon between the vertical blue bars and the word ‘vimeo’ to watch it fullscreen – hit ESC to go back. If you...

Undress For Success Review From Down Under

Image by Long Zheng via Flickr I’m prejudiced, and I admit it. Now that’s just not right, you should judge each person on the own merit regardless of race, color creed, or national origin. And I really do believe that. Except when it comes to national origion. Sorry, but if you’re from Australia I have a knee jerk reaction, and I just like you. And...

There are three reasons to work from home: it’s good for employers, it’s good for employees, and it’s good for your community. We go into the details in our forthcoming book, but here’s an overview: Employers benefit because they can attract and retain more talented employees by offering telecommuting options.

The Future of Work

I recently interviewed Inder Guglani, founder and CEO of Guru.com. You might think they’re something like Monster.com, or maybe eLance.com; but their use of heuristics to define competency makes them unique. Quality not quantity is what they’re all about. Mind you, I’m not saying that eLance or Monster don’t care about quality, but Guru’s heuristic approach is extraordinary. We have a lot more to say...
