Be on the lookout for the following bogus Facebook message from Facebook Security (not the real Facebook Security). It is a phishing attempt to gain access to Facebook user accounts:
The Facebook message looks something like this and is quoted in red!:

Today's mission: Think Win-Win
Beginning any new adventure can be scary and challenging at times. However, if we don't try new things, we stop living, laughing, and loving things that this wonderful world the Grand Over-all Designer created for all to enjoy. As I sit my new desk and writing my new computer, looking at all the stuff on the wall. I can't stop thinking how lucky I am to have this opportunity to do something I love to do. As I tear up from the joy, the overwhelming…Continue

My younger brother has recently embarked on a quest to purchase his first car, prompting me to proffer some advice on optimizing on the negotiations. It is a subject which I hope will be of interest and benefit to those of you who read my periodic ramblings.
Bat-what? In the academic study of negotiation, this term represents your best alternative to a negotiated agreement. Many of you probably had a good understanding of concept before it had an…Continue

We all will agree that Facebook has become a great and useful tool for any business. We also can see that so many of the small businesses in Spokane, who would largely benefit from social media, refuse to embrace the concept of at least Facebook. While these small businesses remain idle on the sidelines, Facebook has been hard at work to make the time and efforts of their users worthwhile and easy to fill with relevant content. When anyone makes the transition, the hard work has been made…Continue

One of the best pieces of advice I've ever learned about the job search is to promote myself the way that I would promote a business. While many people swing to the extreme one way or the other in doing so, either understating their qualifications or burying their interviewer in bombast, it is imperative to find a spot somewhere in the middle, a place where each person involved can feel comfortable.

I generally gravitate towards red wine. My favorite is Cabernet Sauvignon, especially with broiled and grilled beef. I’m also a huge fan of Zinfandel washing down rich chocolates. I make my own ganache chocolate truffles and like nothing better than chasing the chocolate with a tight, dry zin. If I’m enjoying a prime rib roast or a really perfect rib eye, I’ll usually go with a nice, black merlot. I’m also a big fan of red blends. For a long time, I cooked our Christmas dinner. The…Continue
