The Sprocket Report

Kate Gingold 0 3700 Article rating: No rating

Celebrities hire publicists to manage their reputations by enhancing the celebrity’s best traits, downplaying the less attractive ones and monitoring what people are talking about. Your business has an online reputation like any celebrity. But who’s managing it?

Listen, we've all been there.  Running around like a crazy person putting out fire after fire, hopping from one project to the next, and spreading ourselves way too thin to feel like we're actually accomplishing any task successfully from start to finish.  If every day is turning into a crisis in the workplace, you've got to take a step back and re-evaluate.  It's time to take a look around and see what you can tweak, adjust, cut out, start doing differently, etc. to turn your hours of work chaos into meaningful time spent that doesn't leave you wiped.

Celebrate Labor-Saving Day

The Sprocket Report

Labor Day advertising always seems to feature some burly guy or gal wielding a massive wrench or mallet. Certainly physical labor is hard work, but those of us who wield keyboards and spread sheets work pretty darn hard as well. Even wrenches have been improved to make the job easier, so why not use technology to make your job easier, too?
