Voting Results, My Virus, US News & World Report

March 27th, 2008

Three things to share today. I’ve been struggling with a computer virus since last night and it’s really killing me. I forgot how much I hated viruses (I used to be an IT Manager and babysit an office full of PC’s). Today I even got the blue screen of death, which I probably haven’t seen on my own computer for over ten years!

(I know, a mac will solve all my problems… I know).

take the survey!So, let me share something about the voting on JibberJobber’s rebranding. It is NECK-AND-NECK! I didn’t realize how close it would be, I thought that one was the clear leader… but this is a real contest! VOTE NOW since it closes tonight!

US News & World Report & JibberJobberAnd, about US News & World Report. This comes from the Jason is bragging department… I had an interview a few weeks ago with Elaine Appleton Grant for about an hour. I’ve done interviews for “about an hour” before, only to see a half-sentence attributed to me in the final writeup. This was different. This article blew me away – not only did it cover so much ground, it, well, was mostly about what I’m doing! How cool is that?

How did I score that interview? Through networking. In fact, it was through a second degree contact, which means Elaine is a third degree contact from me. See, it gets really interesting once you get to that third and fourth degree! Let me give a huge shoutout to my buddy Mike Murray, who was that first degree contact who made this all happen – thank you Mike!!

    Congrats on this week’s write-up in U.S. News & World Report. That’s a well-deserved “hit” for your ongoing PR & marketing efforts, as referenced here: http://www.thebettyfactor.com/2008/03/28/perserverance-laser-sharp-focus-and-a-good-idea-a-winning-combination-for-jason-alba-creator-of-jibberjobbercom/.

    Continued success.
