Have you seen Wolfram Alpha yet? This tool may just be a category killer against Bing and Google….

I read Monday's article in The Wall Street Journal new research which reveals that women-owned businesses are alot smaller than men-owned companies. The author, Sharon Hadary, claims that "the differences between women and men begin with their own reasons for starting a business."

What role are our current education systems playing in encouraging women to play small, and how do we break free from that limiting paradigm?

It seems as if fewer and fewer people create time to reflect these days."White space" on the calendar is a luxury, not a norm.  As I meandered through the Columbia Sportswear store in the Portland Airport last Wednesday, I stumbled across a new product that not only excited me, but serves as a perfect tool for people in search of a balanced life.

For all of you who are feeling tired, overwhelmed, and overweighted with too many commitments, I have found the perfect solutions to lighten your load.

Last month, I met with Michel Kripalani, CEO of Oceanhouse Media in San Diego California. What an enlightening conversation!  I just had to share it with you.  His company offers three of the bestselling apps for the iPhone, and has developed more than 80 of them to date. (More on the way for the iPad).

Oceanhouse Media doesn’t just develop new apps for the iPhone and iPad–they truly model the traits of a wealthy company. …

In the 1979 award-winning thriller, "The China Syndrome," a reporter (Jane Fonda) and cameraman (Michael Douglas) discovered safety violations at a nuclear power plant.  The term "China Syndrome" reflected the belief that if an American nuclear reactor plant experiences a meltdown, the core will melt through the earth until it reaches China.  (Suspend your disbelief for a moment–we all know that the opposite side of the globe is actually the Indian Ocean).

It may appear that Google is experiencing a business strategy crisis right now–but they are actually averting a global commercial meltdown in the long term. Here’s why.

The core of any organization is defined by its values. Our values determine the way we run our lives as well as how we do things at work.  When companies are not living their core values, they have no safety net.  They are inviting a meltdown of trust, repute, and long-term viability.  When they defend their core values, they create a more temporary, less threatening challenge: controversy.   

Google's China Syndrome underscores three important reminders:

Many B2B companies are facing enormous pressure to protect their fee structures.  How do you leverage client input to grow a wealthier company –even when clients are demanding more value for less money?

I had the pleasure of conducting another interview with Garry Ridge, CEO of WD-40 headquartered in San Diego, California.  For the past six years, I have constantly been intrigued by Garry’s intense commitment to developing people.  While many companies have postponed professional development and innovation until the economic climate improves, WD-40 stays the course.  Enjoy this 30-minute interview and hear how he and his team have achieved the following:

* aligned team performance goals with company performance goals
* ensured their company values contribute directly to building a strong fortress of brands
* invested in programs that create a positive impact in the global communities they serve

* created leading performance indicators to ensure consistent results

I also suggest you listen to what keeps Garry energized during these challenging times….
