Splendid Sundays Volume 9Sunday, September 13, 2009
A handful of splendid finds and interesting tidbits from around the world wide web:
*This week on Find Splendid, I shared part of my healthcare story. It includes a couple of thoughts on my faith, so please consider this fair warning if you're offended by that sort of thing. The majority of the story however is not opinion - it is the real life account of a very difficult, stretching and personal season in my life.
*Google released a site that aggregates various Internet statistics. This is an interesting one, considering it involves the primary age-group of most engaged couples: "For the third successive year it is those aged 25 - 34 who are the most frequent online shoppers." Verdict Research, May 2009
*Great article from The Switchboards on color psychology and how it relates to consumer sales. Are the colors of your website and blog working for or against your business goals?
*Adventurer and speaker Alastair Humphreys posted an article on 8 Tiny Ways To Improve Your Life. I found this tidbit fascinating: "If you get up a mere 10 minutes earlier each day, and go to bed 10 minutes later you will have created for yourself 5 extra days per year."
*Laura Novak wrote a great piece on creating an advisory board for your business. I'm a firm believer that a true expert knows that there is always more to learn, and Laura's suggestion provides a great way to continue to educate yourself, even if your business has outgrown some of the mass education the event industry offers.
Do you have any splendid finds to share?
