This weekend has been a blast for me. My cousin Kim celebrated her
50th birthday, and that meant I partied waaaay longer than I’m used to

I’m still recuperating and plan to do nothing today but kick my feet
up and relaxing. I didn’t relax too much though, for today’s article I give
some useful insight into real brand value, and the brand booster resource
has a link to get you some great photos for your website or blog.
Animoto.com makes it so easy to create video that even professional video editors use it. (I sound like a commercial right? Yeah, that happens with me sometimes.) I just think it’s a great product, and I suppose to add to my experience I’ve actually met one of the co-founders who lives right here in Jersey City, NJ. If you ever look up the history of Animoto, you’ll be inspired.

I was deeply moved and it further validated my decision to launch the Global Organization for Women in Branding. I’m so close now. Just a few more weeks.
In today’s newsletter I talk about how we all can be connected and how we can truly be involved and invested in each other. I listed 5 simple things that can change the way we work in the world. I hope you enjoy it. Also, I’ve… Read the full article...
Earlier this year I challenged you to find out how you can compete to enter some awards this year. Have you made your list yet? Next week is a webinar for the American Business Awards (the Stevies) and I plan to be on that call (and I have faith that I can win an award too!). It would be great if you join me (it’s a free call) and discover how you can boost your brand with more opportunities in this way.
There are dozens of categories, and the deadline isn’t until March, which gives you plenty of time to get it together and create a stellar application. Are you game? If so, be sure to visit the website at www.stevieawards.com
