Friday Fun: Meet New Friends and Keep The Old


n Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Today's Friday Fun is nibble of bittersweet chocolate. Paul_chaney_1 Paul Chaney of Radiant Marketing (until 11:59pm tonight) is closing the virtual doors to his blog and moving on to new adventures and opportunities. Paul holds a special spot in my heart he was my first .. my first in-person blogger friend. Gotcha!  After an AiMA event we spent hours in an Atlanta biker's bar talking about blogs.

Blogging Systems recognized Paul's talent and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Paul's new gig is VP of Marketing. Lucky for our emerging industry that Paul Chaney's new corporate home is in the social media space. Although Radiant Marketing will be no more, catch Paul blogging at Blogging Systems Blog, Realty Blogging, Blog For Good  and look for a new blog Sweet Tea.

Around the same time that Paul began exploring opportunities with Blogging Systems he met his soul mate. Next month wedding bells will ring for Paul and Aime. Nice when good things happen to good people.

business astrology for fun

Happy 4th of July and Good Luck Peachtree Roadrace Runners in Atlanta, GA!

Many of you are taking off early to enjoy the big holiday weekend. Have fun! When you get back to business next week, Mercury will have gone Retrograde on 7/4. Miscommunication, travel snafus, computer problems are just a few of the annoyances during the Mercury Retrograde period.

Mercury will turn direct 7/28. If you have any major decisions to make or contracts to sign, it is best to wait till after 7/28. The best thing to do is to re think your plans. It is also an excellent time in sales to call and reconnect with clients. Hopefully Peachtree runners  won't have trouble finding where they parked their cars at the beginning of the race!

Also when you get back to work on  Wed, July 5th, you may have a hard time getting back in gear. Mars opposes Neptune. This is not the energy you want to have to go back to work with after a holiday. You may feel very sleepy. Your energy level may feel like you are dragging a 50 lb. bag around your ankles.

Also be careful of who you trust. Don’t take what others say at face value. Don’t believe every word they say.

Crap! I have to give a budget presentation at the quarterly share holder's meeting on Wednesday the 5th. I'm doomed...

AND my computer is already acting up; me email has gone wonky on me. Me without proper email? Fish without water...

All I can say is "chill"! Enjoy the 4th with a nice cold beer. You'll be O.K. Good luck with your presentation. All you can do is be prepared and know what you're talking about.

Thanks Paula, I'll try to keep that in mind as I remember to breathe.

Luckily, I know my "stuff" and have a great relationship with the poeple in charge. The last one of these meetings, they mde me feel like a star, so I feel relatively confident... so long as I can stay focused and not spend too much time rambling.

I know the feeling Tim, I have had to give plenty of major presentations in the insurance field. Hope all went well!
