Okay friends. I had a hard time writing about a single topic this week, so I am going to do another “Top 5 Things on My Mind” post. I hope one of these gets you thinking, makes you laugh or helps you take action.
1) Companies are spending money on marketing and training again. That’s a good thing.
We’ve noticed a jump in requests for new websites and LinkedIn training over the past quarter. Almost double the normal volume. Thank you to all of you that have sent opportunities our way!
I think that our type of business is an early indicator to where the economy is moving. The services we offer tie directly to the sales and marketing efforts of the companies we help. When companies start spend money on those efforts, it usually means the economy is in growth mode.
I’ve talked to quite a few companies lately about this trend and many are seeing the same thing. More activity than normal. Are you seeing that in your business? I hope so!
2) One space or two after a period?
Completely random, I know.. but this has been on my mind for two weeks for some reason. I stumbled onto an article that opened my eyes to the ongoing debate about how many spaces should be after a period. One, or two? I was taught two spaces in typing class in grade school. And there are a lot of people loudly claiming there should only be one space.
I think the most interesting perspective on the argument is that people might be able to tell you are over 40 if you double space. Dang, that’s me. I double spaced my sentences up to this point in my blog post. Ugh. What do you think? Do you use one or two spaces?
Do a google search on “one or two spaces” and enjoy reading 70 million results. Read more
