#NMX 2013 Adventures

MortonsPeterShankman

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
E. E. Cummings

The Second day at #NMX ended on a great note. Peter Shankman was in Vegas for #NMX and CES and sent out a tweet announcing an impromptu get-together at Morton’s on Flamingo. I was dead tired, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to say hello to Peter and enjoy a fantastic evening with incredible people. With a quick text to Mona, we met up at the lobby with our new friends Crystal Collins, Chris Deals, and Leslie Samuel who would meet us there later.

The #NMX Experience 2013

#NMX 2013 Speakers“The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”

Mitch Albom

This time last week, I was already settled in to my room at the Rio in Las Vegas. I was trying to wind down, anticipating a busy schedule ahead at #NMX 2013 and  BusinessNext Social, held in conjunction with NMX.  It’s like Comic-Con (especially with Chris Hardwick making an appearance)  for people who are into “new media” which includes, blogging, podcasting,web-tv and video creators as well as social media. A huge thank you to Rick Calvert, Dave Cynkin, and everyone else involved with making NMX 2013 a success!

Mindset Matters 2013

What I focus on in life is what I get. And if I concentrate on how bad I am or how wrong I am or how inadequate I am, if I concentrate on what I can’t do and how there’s not enough time in which to do it, isn’t that what I get every time? And when I think about how powerful I am, and when I think about what I have left to contribute, and when I think about the difference I can make on this planet, then that’s what I get. You see, I recognize that it’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do about it.

Top Five List of Funny Sites I’m Thankful For

Turkey Bikini“If you’re at a Thanksgiving dinner, but you don’t like the stuffing or the cranberry sauce or anything else, just pretend like you’re eating it, but instead, put it all in your lap and form it into a big mushy ball. Then, later, when you’re out back having cigars with the boys, let out a big fake cough and throw the ball to the ground. Then say, ‘Boy, these are good cigars!”

Introverted Extrovert

Anyone can be cool“Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.”

Alan Alda

If you’ve ever suffered through had the opportunity to take a Myers-Briggs assessment, you may or may not remember your alphabet soup personality type. I always seem to come up as ENFP – Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving. Over the years, I’ve been told many times that I’m very perceptive or intuitive – I can usually smell a rat long before anyone else does, and I always know when “something is up”.
