Whoo Hoo Exchange and Outlook

So today I was migrated from Lotus Notes (Yep you may have to look that one up) to Exchange and Outlook. It is everything I had hoped. The multiple calendars, web mail and integration into our CRM is great.

One small email for me, one giant leap for our company.

Rockin Robin

So on Sunday night I found a Robin (Bird) in our back yard that could not fly. It has been there for the last couple of days.

Molly our dog has left it alone and it has lived back there. Today Jenifer said that the other Robins were feeding it. And then it happened. Another Robin sitting on the fence was holding a worm. Then flew down to the hurt Robin and gave it the worm. I would have never believed it.

The Go Giver goes to the Birds.

300 (three hundred) is the natural number following two hundred ninety-nine and preceding three hundred one.

Mathematical properties
It is a triangular number and the sum of a pair of twin primes (149 + 151), as well as the sum of ten consecutive primes (13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47). It is a Harshad number.

And, I might add that this is my #300 blog entry. Who would of thought that I could write that many boring entries.

Since this is supposed to have a sales entry I figure I should have something about sales. That would be that to be the best you have to invest in your self. That is your training (Get as much sales, product and process training you can), Your customers (Care, you can't fake that, they will know) and people around you (Your fellow workers, vendors and others you will get more if you invest into those around you)

Direct to the public?

Is sure causing the press to have problems. That is the new presidential administration using facebook, blogs and youtube and circumventing the press. It is nice to have some direct presentations other than the press.

However there is some new angles that will come about. Recently the administration published a youtube video of the President playing basketball with some children. Sure, not likely to change international policy. Yet we will not know if the President missed some shots.

The press was not allowed to attend, the administration edited the tape and presented only one side of the issue.

We are seeing some changes in the way information is passed to the public and the accessability of the information. We will see where this goes.
