Understanding how to adopt the right Business Management Software (including CRM)?

Most businesses come to vendors or consultants for Business Management Software when they are in one of the following stages:

1. Growing exponentially beyond capacity

2. Declining from past success

In the first scenario, a business has hit the mark and is creating good communication with customers. It is prosperous, but is increasingly unable to support or fulfil orders from customers in a timely fashion.

In the second scenario, an established business… Continue

I ask if

A secret shower

Will pronounce evening sounds

Only you can see


When slender tendrils bruise me

An immense blossom

Slices through summer morning

People I love go there

Grow and work and

Create new dreams in liquid blue sky


Her wild wind

Leaves cracked… Continue

What Does All this Presentation MEAN?

I can well understand BEING someone and manifesting your heart's desire. But it seems so frenzied now for good reason. So, why is it I may not SEEM bothered? is it that I have been slow and poor all my life?

Honestly, there are so many places to show up without any intelligence or history to know of that can back you bein wise. How… Continue

Do You Live in Pain?

Are you one of those people who live in pain?

You know the people who ignore how they feel?

The people who think their pain is ‘nothing’, ‘no big deal’

and say ‘it will just go away’?

You know these same people, by ignoring their pain which is a signal of distress or ‘out of balance’ in the body will eventually build blockages in that area and eventually the body needs emergency help. At that time they usually go to a doctor and have thousands… Continue

New Mandolin to town

A musician who's been wondering the country side engaging in bluegrass festivals for the last couple of years. Along the way creating a family of musicians that span that same country side and compiling the miles to gig, to pick n sing and share stories. Needless to say this has been a rewarding not to mention musically inspiring venture, ''BUT'', there always seems to be a ''but''. This musical family I mention is merely one of a temporary status in that once the weekend is over we all pack up… Continue

Do you remember those days? They're sorta back.

"Love Is The New Religion" by Brian Piergrossi (From the book 'The Big Glow')

"On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and things

seem dark

But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening


An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called

to a higher light

It is a silent revolution

From the ground up

China reassigns 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in bid to fight pollution | The Independent

China has reportedly reassigned over 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in a bid to combat pollution by increasing the country's forest coverage.  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland. The majority will be dispatched to Hebei province, which encircles Beijing, according to the Asia Times which originally reported the story. The area is known to be a major culprit for producing the notorious smog which blankets the capital city.

Good News: This Year's Monarch Butterfly Migration Is Larger Than We've Seen in Recent Years | Better Homes & Gardens

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

Germany to close all 84 of its coal-fired power plants, will rely primarily on renewable energy | Los Angeles Times

Reporting from Berlin — Germany, one of the world’s biggest consumers of coal, will shut down all 84 of its coal-fired power plants over the next 19 years to meet its international commitments in the fight against climate change, a government commission said Saturday.

New urban algae canopy produces as much oxygen as four hectares of woodland | The Plaid Zebra

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland. When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
