The standard footers

I have a total of 6 standard footers running through this site. What follows is their content.


For the longest time, I kept quotes in my journalling system - DayONE. I have been stadily moving all of them into this new public space and adding others as I continue to find them.

Click here to scroll through what is here - or here if you have a specific one in mind. There are a lot here.

A second series of quotes are stored here. Not as many and are actually more attributed words that appeal, not neccesarily famous’ in the way the others are..


Thoughts originally recorded for posterity in DayONE in early 2018 - and now here as part of my migration and consolidation.

What is People First All About?

Nothing less than putting people back into the center of The Business Equation’.

People First - All Else Follows. It’s a simple rule, but not well understood - much less followed. Our goal is to explore how people have increasingly taken a back seat in society as we have allowed unfettered and unelected power to corporates’.

What can people and businesses do to mitigate the downside? I choose and’ because if business does not understand the importance of People First and include that thinking in their strategies, they too will be run over by the unfettered power of the megacorps’.

People First lays the groundwork for people both inside and outside of business to understand how they can better work and engage to create a People First World’.

People First is attempting to flip accepted language, thinking, and narrative on its head. We live in a corporate-centric world - to the detriment of people. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the USA - but actually it is across the world.

That’s why I want us to put people back at the center of The Business Equation.

[ #IPNotContent ]

… stop using the word content and recognize that our writing, art, article, novel, music, video, book is OUR intellectual property - that which allows us to make a living - and not some homogenous mass of interchangeable nothingness that corporations refer to it as, so as to keep prices low and use to fill up their web sites.

[ #VRMsNotCRMs ]

… think about why we still don’t have a Vendor Relationship Management’ system … some thirty years after corporations got their Customer Relationship Management’ systems.

[ #NewPowerNewValues ]

… think about why Wall Street is doing so well, while Main Street is in the toilet - but day after day - week after week we are told over and over again that the economy is doing great.’

… understand that despite terms like sharing’, social’, customer centric’ being bandied around in corporate messaging, we are still driven by old power and old values’.

[ #IPNotContent ]

… think twice about posting your work into social silos like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIN … not for all the usual reasons, of which there are many, but to recognize that when you do, you have essentially signed over your IP rights to that site, not to mention that you have lost control of the URL that allows you to reference it.

[ #ThePresentOfWork ]

The Present of Work - NOT - The Future of Work

[ #BuyingNotSelling ]

The Buyers Journey as typically mapped by an Enterprise is actually a Corporate Sellers Journey.

Social Sales is not new - it is as sales was done before the Corporates industrialized every single process.

I buy … you sell.

[ #PeopleNotMarkets ]

The market of one, generational segmentation, demographics, persona management’ … forget about them all. I am a person.
