There are no big ideas or small ideas only powerful ideas

There Are No Big Ideas Just Powerful Ideas

It’s true. Just think about Coke’s Big Idea of some 30 years ago. The company decided to change Coca-Cola’s formula and launched New Coke. Fans of old Coke were so enraged that the company completely backtracked. It’s considered one of the biggest blunders in corporate history. Little ideas we don’t hear about for obvious reasons.

Thanksgiving - famine in Yemen

Giving Thanks for My Good Fortune

Today I give thanks for my good fortune.

There is so much to be thankful for when you consider that millions of people around the world go to bed hungry every night. The situation is dire in Yemen where a child under five dies of hunger every 10 minutes.

As the World Food Bank USA, reports, “As the civil war in Yemen rages on, the country is teetering on the brink of famine. 17 million people don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And the cholera epidemic is making the situation even more dire for the 2.2 million severely malnourished children.”

Thanks to my loyal followers, my fellow bloggers, my family, and my friends for your continued support.

Happy Thanksgiving!
