Splendid Sundays Volume 86Sunday, May 27, 2012
A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
*The power of shifting 10%.
*On trend with the uptick in "banner blindness," 83% of U.S. adult Facebook users rarely or never click on Facebook ads or sponsored content.
*The new conflict/blood diamonds: ruby mines in Afghanistan recently plundered by thieves.
*Recommended book: The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism by Olivia Fox Cabane. Practical, realistic and a must-read for any introvert (and for many extroverts as well.)
This week in The Splendid Collective:
*I'll be speaking at Engage!12 :: Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas next week on How the Trophy Kids Buy Luxury. This is the ninth Engage! event and one I look forward to every year. If you work in the luxury wedding industry, it is worth attending.
*Want to make sure you're above board in case you ever get audited? Here are some common (and costly) mistakes on the I-9 Form and how to avoid them.
