Maybe you know and maybe you don’t… but Yelp (a local search and reviews online service) offers paid advertising for businesses called the “Yelp Sponsorship Program”. But before you allow yourself to get sweet talked by fast-talking, “say anything to get your money” Yelp sales rep, let’s dig in a bit deeper to see if this is actually worth it for you.
In these trying political times, I find myself rattled by the conflicts that plague our nation today and the divide being experienced by this country. People are so busy with being “right” that the very idea of humanity is being challenged. I’ve identified 7 main “groups” in this political climate in an effort to identify our blind-spots – specifically, my own.

Both eyes ahead.” This resonates with me and it obviously applies to failures… but this also applies to successes which is a nuance that too many folks miss. Let me explain.
As a growth hacker, I love helping other entrepreneurs bring their “painkillers” to market – I’ll even take on vitamins with the understanding that it’ll be a bit “tougher” to market a vitamin. But an enema? Thank you very much but no thanks!
I agree with “The Secret…” to an extent. But there’s an aspect of the movie that bugs me. It only gives you half of the truth but neglects to talk about the other half. I suppose I really am pointing fingers at the (lazy) viewers and not as much at the movie even though the makers of the movie do bear some of the responsibility. Let me explain…
