Remembering 9-11

Do you remember where you were on Sept. 11th, 2001?

What were you doing when you heard about the planes striking the World Trade Center in NewYork?

How has that tragic event impacted your life and the way you think and act?

How have you changed and what have you changed as a result of your reflection and reaction to that event?

I toured ground zero in early December of 2001. I was supposed to be speaking in NJ shortly after the terrorist attack and was rescheduled to December. I was overwhelmed by the devistation I saw. The smells and the sights are seared into my memories. I was moved to tears with the posters for missing family members and the poems and wishes from so many who had visited this once towering site.

I also made some changes in my life and my business activities. My family and friends have become even more important to me than ever. I now make sure they are taken care of, before I worry about my business commitments.

I also am working to create additional revenue streams and ways of sharing my expertise on a more local scale. I've added executive speech coaching services... http://www.executivespeechcoach.ca and doing a bit more writing too... http://www.businesswriter.ca and working on getting more training around Western Canada as well. http://www.trainersplus.info

I love to travel... but am making each trip count.

If you know anyone who can use my professional services... pass on one of my websites... the main one being: http://www.ideaman.net

But most importantly, when you pause to reflect on how the lives of thousands were cut short and the impact that has made... think about how you can continue to make a difference by leading your life and taking personal responsibility.

Designing A Website That Sells
By Walter Wood

Would you buy meat from a grocery store that left the
bad meat in with the good meat or wasn’t clean? Would
you buy a car from a sales lot that had totaled
automobiles on the front lot? I wouldn’t and neither
would you. Your website is your grocery store; your
car lot. You must have an atmosphere that is pleasing
to buyers. One that tells that buyer that you are not
an amateur, but instead a trained, seasoned
professional. Your site is a direct reflection of
your product and that is why that having a well
designed website can make or break your sales.

The first thing to keep in mind when designing your
website, is “surfability”. Take a few minutes a look
around at several web pages. What makes them
appealing? Were there some that you closed out of
immediately? Why? Take notes and do your research.
Keep in mind that when a person visits your site they
have a goal in mind. They are either seeking
information or shopping for a product. Give the
person what they want without having to search for it.
Be sure that all the information on your site is
relevant to your product. Make the buyer think that
they need your product to solve their problem.
