Era of the Social Consumer: The Rise of the Private Sale Sites

By: Kelly Ahern, guest blogger

Brian Solis said it best,

“What may sound like buzz words or mere hype, is actually the beginning of the end of business as usual. Welcome to the rise of the social consumer and a new era of social commerce”.

In today’s society there isn’t a thing you cannot find online. Shopping has never been easier—and for a fashionista with a spending problem, like myself, online social commerce has become my drug [Read more…]

Inhale Courage, Exhale Fear: The Gratitude List

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

– John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Inhale Courage, Exhale Fear III: The Flowers of Adversity

There is this funny thing about life that happens — it gets in the way of itself.

There is no rhyme, no reason, no logic and no sense of sense.

Blaise Pascal, the famous French mathematician said,

“Le cÅ“ur a ses raisons, que la raison ne connaît point.”

In other words,

“The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know.”

In 1989, Bruce Hornsby wrote “The End of the Innocence” where he said,

“Remember when the days were long and rolled beneath a deep blue sky,
Didn’t have a care in the world with mommy and daddy standing by,
When “happily ever after” fails and we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales…”

… and dreams of Disney, The Grimm Brothers fairy tales and Barbie dolls came to mind, slightly behind the cursing of Jane Austen and Elizabeth Gaskell shortly thereafter.

It’s an interesting dynamic how the world works: the fine line between what we are taught to believe, forced upon us by society, and what truly exists.
