The title of this article is a lie and a trick. This article is really about the dangers of marketing to the lowest common denominator.
This is a rant post. The headline I just used to ensnare your attention (thank you for it, by the way, and please bear with me) is just one trademark example of a whole school of sleazy marketing.

Today, I have something a little different. This is for the folks who know me (and care) enough that they’d like some insight into my world. If you’re curious about where I’m growing (and struggling) and think that you might benefit from that perspective, then welcome! I’m serving up a fresh helping of all that and more.
I rarely use this blog to update you, in classic look-what-I’m-eating-for-breakfast style, on what’s going on in the life and world of me. This isn’t the beginning of a trend and we’ll be back to regular programming soon… but right now, I have a few things I need to talk about.
For those still reading, on with the show! Continue reading “Boosting Energy and Productivity for a better bottom line”
