    'Read most marketing or business blogs and the word value will appear at some point.but what is value? In a sense it is one of those words that we all know what it means to us, however it is difficult to define. It strikes me that for something so core to being successful in both business and our personal lives, we need to learn more about value and give it a meaning that we can strive to achieve? Let Bob explain how I see value. Now if we take that value equation and translate it to everything that we do.on it is a outcome from the goal of making the world better for those around you.

    [Blog] Is attention all its cracked up to be?
    And do you know why I include pictures in my blogs? I’m reading Seducing the Subconscious by Robert Heath. It’s an interesting book, which looks at the argument that attention is what makes advertising successful and suggests that low levels of attention are actually better for advertising as opposed to focused attention. From what I’ve read so far, as well as my own experiences, I’m inclined to agree with the author. I’ve never had much faith in advertising, mainly because so much of it is so inane and kooky that I wonder how anyone can take it seriously.
