Why Entrepreneurs Should Care About Miley Cyrus's Risky Pivot

 BY Carrie Kerpen 


I have a 10-year-old daughter who grew up watching Hannah Montana. And so, when the Video Music Awards aired with Miley Cyrus gyrating in a teddy bear leotard and using a foam finger to rub her genitalia, I was none too pleased. What would I tell my daughter? Would she want to watch this? While I determined my next steps as a parent (which was to tell her that Cyrus's new stuff is kind of gross and not for kids), I began thinking about whether Miley's recent makeover would help or hurt her career. Although only time will tell ultimately, I found some clear lessons for entrepreneurs based on Miley's recent choices and I've outlined them below.

 3 Reasons Exercise Makes You Smarter

By: Drake Baer


Writing in Scientific American, Justin Rhodes, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Illinois, reports that a "growing body of evidence suggests we think and learn better" when we walk, jog, or otherwise workout--though the reasons why aren't completely understood.

Though he does have some ideas.

Goodbye SEO, Hello SMO (Social Media Optimization)


By Peg



I recently had a Google+ Hangout with Joshua Berg who is an SEO/SMO thought leader. I've read his blog but we hadn't "met" each other before so this was really fun. I did a little research to see what Joshua's background was and was excited to ask some questions about social media, blogging, SEO, and most importantly SMO or social media optimization which is Joshua's specialty. The hangout led to more thinking (imagine that!) and I had a few more questions which Joshua was kind enough to answer for me.  Google's Hummingbird update has made a few changes but not to worry.

I Failed All My Classes and that's Why I'm Winning

Gary Vaynerchuk in I.M.H.O



I wasn't a great student, and I wasn't well read, and honestly that was my advantage. There are a lot of things I don't know. I say things and people think they're brilliant statements, but people have said all those things before, just differently (and I'd be happy to quote them if I knew how they actually said it!). This is actually something that I think about a lot:

That I get credit for a lot of things that are actually grounded in my weaknesses.

Are you wondering what works with Facebook and what's a waste of time?

Do hashtags make a difference?

What about sponsored stories?

There's recently been ton of research to understand how Facebook marketing is helping (or hurting) businesses.

" A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer , it sings because it has a song.                                                                                                           Maxa Angelou


  Is it  a beautiful quote? I think so. I made my slogan of it:                      " I have a song, I like to sing it."



            Best Success
