Who’s Watching YOU?

Who’s watching YOU?

As the past seven years have unfolded, we have seen the move from capturing video content on a tape-based format, to one that is purely digital and tapeless. Those of us in the industry of capturing events and crafting stories are now joined, whether we like it or not, by the legion of cell phone owners who can record high-definition (HD) footage, and upload the content directly to the Internet. No editing. No reviewing. No way…

What it has also done is make us keenly aware, as many law enforcement officers are coming to grips with, that you can be recorded at any time. Anywhere. Without your knowledge or consent. That is scary…

So, now, we must be ever mindful that any/everything that you do can be recorded. Have we gone too far in the name of “free speech?” Those of us in the media know all too well, that the “camera never lies…”

With “red light” cameras on many intersections, on the exterior and interiors of numerous businesses, we are all being “monitored”, whether you give permission or not. And to borrow a phrase which will obviously date me, and recall what was once a total surprise and is now commonplace, “smile, you’re on Candid Camera,” is now the norm.

We better be ready for all that can come from such immediacy.

How Big is YOUR Bowl?

How Big is YOUR Bowl?

As business owners we are so busy each day/week/month…that we lose sight of a very important aspect of our business…GROWTH.

We are engaged each day in the daily operations of running the business that we forget to step back a bit, take a different look and then plan for the next phase of business growth.

• Addition of a new product line or service
• Hiring of additional staff
• Opening of another branch/office/unit

The building of our business is akin to the goldfish in the bowl…yes, that one we received as a kid. We watched it incessantly. Over fed it. Stuck our finger in the bowl when our parents weren’t looking….

Then something magical happened. The fish began to grow…and grow…until it was time to purchase another bowl, for it had now outgrown its original environment.

Is it time for a new bowl?

We can help you examine and create a plan-of-action to move you from stagnation to Expansion. Let’s chat today…
