Artists: Submit to The Blooom Award by Warsteiner by 31 July

You don’t have to be a fan of beer to love Warsteiner, Germany’s largest privately owned brewery, which has now been owned and operated by the Cramer family for 264 years. Brauerei Warsteiner has had a close relationship with the arts for more than thirty years – starting with Andy Warhol, who immortalized the Warsteiner Pilsner glass to help launch the Warsteiner Art Collection. In 2010, Warsteiner established The Blooom Award to offer young creatives in Germany a chance to get their start in the international art market. Since 2012, the competition has been opened up to artists all around the world in the fields of art, design, urban art and film. Applications are due by 31 July. Read more

Brand thyself

For years now, career counselors, management consultants, self-help gurus and many others have encouraged us to apply the concepts of brand management to ourselves. For anyone who is beginning this daunting process, just getting going can be a big challenge considering how much advice there is to be found. Bearing that in mind, I wanted to provide some guidance. First, I invite you to check-out the video playlist I’ve embedded above, which will help you get a handle on the main ideas at work here so you can begin applying them to yourself. The playlist also includes several more in-depth presentations, including a complete course in Personal Branding Education.

Finally, for a couple of examples of how everything can add up once you’ve successfully applied these lessons, I invite you to check-out the web presence for author Bret Easton Ellis at http://BretEastonEllis.com.

MLK Day of Service 2017

The MLK Day of Service is an opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s legacy through service and volunteerism.

Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. To learn more, please visit http://www.nationalservice.gov/mlkday.

It’s also my pleasure to provide the following graphic illuminating the life and lasting legacy of Dr. King, courtesy of http://OnlineCollegeCourses.com. “People honor and celebrate the life of Dr. King for many reasons, but most importantly, for his role in working to achieve race equality in America. Dr. King had arguably the greatest impact of any single person during the fight for racial equality, and the fact that his life was cut short causes people to wonder what he may have gone on to achieve in his lifetime.

Giving season: Love

In the video above, in his own words, Narayanan Krishnan says, “I thought, what is the purpose of my life? What am I going to do? …And I quit my job and I started feeding all these people from 2002.” And later: “There are thousand and thousands and lots and lots of people suffering. What is the ultimate purpose of life? It’s to give. Start giving. See the joy of giving.

I have done some research on homelessness over the years, and we all know that there are displaced people living on the city streets everywhere in America. The organizations and initiatives highlighted below represent just some of the many phenomenal community efforts supporting homeless people in the U.S. and elsewhere. I found many of them through http://JustGive.org, and I’m also proud to point you to this list JustGive publishes, entitled 35 Ways You Can Help the Homeless. They list as item 7, “give money,” and to that, I’ll add my plea to give whatever you have to spare (from loose change to your time), to those people you see in need.

Also, it’s the time of year when I invite you to join me in sending daily clicks to http://hungersite.com, where our simple mouseclicks can benefit a number of vital causes each and every day.


Thank you! Read more
