My long-time friend, BL Ochman, and biz partner have just launched a very cool website, starting with a blog. PawFun. We're going to be able to order tee shirts with photos of our pets on it. The blog site right now has a caption contest, which is great fun, but what struck my eye was an article by a NY veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Mlekoday on the top 10 things pets swallow. Ochman is passionate about dog care, so you can expect lots of "How-to's" at Paw Fun. Enjoy.

Goodyear's Goodwill store, to open Friday, October 24, is truly looking out for the community. In addition to bargain merchandise (on a 26,000 sq ft floor), it will offer a coffee bar and career center. Housing the Southwest Valley's first career center, it's open to anyone needing job-hunting help. This includes free computers with Internet access, fax machines, and phones. Goodwill employees will also help clients draft resumes and prepare for interviews. Great community service? Inspiring to others? Role model to follow? You betcha! 🙂
Ann Handley, one of my heroes, just blogged about something significant. To her. And to many others. A week or so after she visited a dermatologist, she "got a flimsy white postcard in the mail from the doctor’s office. On it were three pre-printed options with open boxes next to them, and one was checked off: 'Your biopsy showed a cancerous growth,' it read next to the check mark. 'Please call our office to schedule a follow-up appointment.' In ballpoint pen, underneath, someone had scrawled, 'Basal cell carcinoma.'" Do take time to read this post, and also the responses. Fascinating.
Publicity Hound, Joan Stewart discovered a brilliant way to help business people understand social networking while still having a life: On November 6, she'll be interviewing my friend and colleague, BL Ochman at a teleseminar called "How to do Social Networking, Run a Business & Still Have a Life." Join Joan on November 6 for a 70-minute teleseminar and hear Ochman explain how she rations her time, uses a variety of social networking tools, and still manages to set aside a huge chunk of her schedule each day for client projects. She'll also explain how she'll use social networking to launch a new business. Will Judy be there? Absolutely. Wouldn't miss this for anything.
