One of the things I have had more fun doing than anything else this last year is buzzing around! Not a bee person? Well, check out bzzagent.com and you might just change your mind. If you have know the value of Word of Mouth marketing you will know what this site is about very quickly!
OK, so I don’t get paid and they give out a few rewards that really aren’t enough to get me so excited about becoming a volunteer buzzer about products they are marketing but I just like the whole feeling about being connected to the hive and getting a peak at new products before anyone else does. I think Seth Godin would call that being an “early adopter.” WOM and Permission-Based marketing people love early adopters… Maybe I am really just a marketing voyeur!
Now this WOM company is opening their hive to the world with their new blog. Talk about being a voyeur. Read company emails, view campaign materials, and hear all the buzz.
I started off with this company as a result of Seth Godin’s “Purple Cow” marketing book. I love Seth’s original stuff and if he was using this company to market his book, well that deserved a look see… Now Seth has a new book out that is even more original if you can believe that called “Free Prize Inside!” I get a free book just for joining up to buzz about this campaign!
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it!
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
As individuals in families and in the world, each of us must find our own path to personal freedom and personal transformation. How can you release your creative human spirit in parenting so that it transforms from frustration to a joyful calling? A true path is a road map that includes proven practices, community support along the way, and possibly the gift of a true teacher. Most important, a true path of parenting from a spiritual perspective will ignite in you a higher purpose for a life based in love for all people.

“Must” #1 (a demand on yourself): “I MUST do well and get approval, or else I’m worthless.” This demand causes anxiety, depression, and lack of assertiveness.
“Must” #2 (a demand on others): “You MUST treat me reasonably, considerately, and lovingly, or else you’re no good.” This “must” leads to resentment, hostility, and violence.
“Must” #3 (a demand on situations): “Life MUST be fair, easy, and hassle-free, or else it’s awful.” This thinking is associated with hopelessness, procrastination, and addictions.
Further adventures of Altering a DSM III. This category plays with the “found words” of the actual diagnosis “Developmental Expressive” disorder with my attempt at an expressionistic drawing. Hey, I had fun ok!
I tore up a testing catalog (respectfully of course) and pasted titles of actual psychological tests to make this random collage. I had no plan of what the actual results would be…as you can tell 🙂
