Graphic Designers Love a ‘Logo-Ectomy’

Graphic Designers Love a ‘Logo-Ectomy’

I am absolutely convinced that some people believe a logo can be changed on a whim! I was reading another blog recently and came across some interesting comments about my company, BNI. The graphic designer said on her blog (referring to BNI), “…the organization is wonderful, they do great work, but their logo is SO ’80s… really needs to be punched up and brought into […]

So, You Know How to Network…But Do You Know How to Sell?

So, You Know How to Network…But Do You Know How to Sell?

In my monthly column on Entrepreneur.com, I wrote about the 5 Ways To Break Into Online Networking. One of the things I recommended was to “join one or more online networking communities.” There are a lot out there to choose from today. However, there’s a new one on the web that I’m impressed with.
