Seth Godin on Snark Vs. Earnest

Snark is clever and funny and easy to spread. Snark protects us from confronting the truth of the situation, and snark is incredibly easy to do. Snark is fun, but it doesn’t look good on you.

Seth Godin Quotes

“Along the way, we bought the story that giving someone a hundred dollar bill as a gift (“go buy what you want”) is callous, insensitive, a crass shortcut. Buying them a $100 Best Buy card, on the other hand, is thoughtful. Even if they spend $92 and have to waste the rest.”
-Seth Godin

What I Learned From Seth Godin

I learned something from Seth Godin today.  I probably knew it already since I follow Wes Zimmerman and communicate with him on a regular basis. Wes’s message is all about “Perception” and how it relates to Buying, Selling and Customer Care.

– Bill Austin
