Who's Kool-aid do you drink?
Who mixes it up for you?
Is yours fresh? Or is your batch getting stale?
Is there a Dr. in the house?
HEY KOOL-AID MAN!!!

There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart,
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
like a shoebox of photographs
with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer
at least for most of the questions in my heart, like
Why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and
sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing, it's always better when we're together
Mmmm, It's always better when we're together
Yeah we'll look at the stars and we're together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah it's always better when we're together
And all of these moments
just might find their way into my dreams tonight,
But I know that they’ll be gone
when the morning light sings
and brings new things
for tomorrow night you see
that they’ll be gone too,
too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find their way
into my day to day scene
I'd be under the impression
i was somewhere in between
With only two,
Just me and you,
Not so many things we got to do
or places we got to be
We'll sit beneath the mango tree, now,
Yeah It's always better when we're together
Mmmm, we're somewhere in between together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together
MmmMmmmmMmm, Mmm MMmmM
I believe in memories
they look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when I wake up,
you look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,
There is no, no song I could sing
and there is no combination of words I could say
but I will still tell you one thing
We're Better together

If rendering authenticity is the new economic offering then conversational media is the tool of choice.
"What happens when you customize a service? What happens when you design a service that is so appropriate for a particular person, that it's exactly what they need at this moment in time? Then you can't help but make them go wow! You can't help but turn that into a memorable event. You can't help but turn that into an experience!"
Companies and small businesses who properly employ the tools of conversational media have opportunities every day to WOW customers and potential customers. Having your social media tools set up to find your clients exactly when they need you is an experience you can offer if you use your tools well. When was the last time your web presence made someone go "WOW!"?
So if experiences are becoming the predominate economic offering and customers are evaluating you on your authenticity the question clearly becomes "How do I render authenticity?"
And it boils down to two things.
1. Know who you are as a business. Be true to yourself.
2. Be who you say you are. Be true to others.
Provide places for people to experience who you are.
And that will make your customers happy and help your business grow.
WHOIS HE? Do you have a website? Do you know where it is hosted? Do you remember where you bought your domain name? Do you know who to call for help? If you do not, you can do what is called a WHOIS
My WHOIS of the Moment is Central Ops.
PS if your current tech company can not answer the above questions for you...

On this Labor Day, I want to share an email I remember reading a long time ago & it went something like this, ( embellished by my mind & my musings )
Tool VS Appliance
Do YOU know the difference between a TOOL and an APPLIANCE?
An APPLIANCE is an item that you USE, and then TOSS when then next B.B.D. (BIGGER BETTER DEAL) comes along. A TOOL is something that you SHARPEN.
A TOOL presupposes understanding & skill in using that TOOL Safely & Correctly
An APPLIANCE should only get you in trouble if you JUMP INTO THE BATHTUB WITH YOUR TOASTER for example!!!
With an APPLIANCE you do not have to worry about your fridge, and the possibility of it banding up with all the refrigerators in your neighborhood in a zombie attack on the White Houses freezer.
With an APPICANCE you do not have to worry that IF YOU DON'T STAY ON TOP OF YOUR UPDATES, your MICROWAVE will be sending all your personal credit card data to a skript kiddy somewhere deep in the Ukraine.
Most times an APPLIANCE is not needed for your life, but a good TOOL may last A LIFE TIME.
An APPLIANCE can be shared amongst friends, but when was the last time you loaned a TOOL and got it back? Especially when you go looking for that TOOL to get you out of a tough situation.
An APPLIANCE is not dependent on the skill set of the user for functionality, put a beer in the icebox, it gets cold...
So then, A TOOL is wholly depend on the skill set of the user. and what functionality will be ultimately be derived from that tool...
I think you can tell alot about a person by the tools they choose, and of those tools, those that they use well.
All TOOLs are not dependent on their complexity, on the contrary,
The very best chisel + the very best stone does not = David, that takes a Michelangelo
In the immortal words of one of my favorite tools, Kieth Richards
"Whats it take to play guitar? 5 strings, 4 fingers, 3 chords and 1 arsehole"
Happy Labor Day, Would love to hear about your favorite tool!
