Is Your Fortune Made Online?

Mine is.

Since I started this blog I've met more fascinating and friendly people [like Anita, and Tris] than I could ever imagine. Some are more friendly than others - some are just bubbling with energy and ideas - and some are laid-back and quiet. All are on my list of great people I am delighted to know.

Additionally, this blog has connected me to professionals in marketing, sales, publishing, and various other industries - that I would never have met otherwise. For instance, Peter Klaus, who I can't wait to sit down with and have a cup of coffee (maybe a glass of wine)...when I attend the Fortune Innovation Forum at the end of the month. Peter makes me glad I'm a blogger.

Fortune makes me glad I'm a business blogger. After last year's event, I came home bursting with new ideas. I couldn't implement them all - but, the conference certainly opened my eyes to the importance of innovation in the world today. Innovation is sort a catch-phrase anymore - some people use it instead of "creativity" or "thinking out of the box." But, that's not what it means. Innovation isn't something you should do - or learn - or 'create'. Innovation is something you believe in.Innovation_2020

Believe in making a difference. Believe in opening your eyes and ears to the insight your employees have about your business. Believe in taking risks and going out on the edge. Believe in being wrong once in a while. Believe in the crazy ideas put forth by kids. Believe that it's your job to innovate - by refusing to be ordinary. [image borrowed from: World Economic Forum]

As Seth Godin says: be remarkable. So, get out of your chair - right now - and run outside. What do you see? Anything remarkable? No? Well, it's up to you to change that.

Then, send me a picture of it. I'll share it with everyone. Go on now...believe in innovation.

Hey Tanya, is so agree that innovation is something you live. It's clear that you're innovative.

Tony,love your blog! Thanks for stopping by and adding to the discussion. I'm going to contemplate your post on abundance. It's a unique idea...

Jim, no wrong turn. Come back!


What an uplifting message to greet me when entering your site. I couldn't agree with you more, and enjoyed the quote by Seth you added. Thanks.

I think innovation is something one LIVES. Also inspiring are the CEOs that team up with the US government in responding to natural disasters. They are being positive and putting their actions where their words are.

Tony D. Clark

What a wonderful and inspiring post, Yvonne. I agree with you 100% that innovation is something you believe in – just like anything else associated with success.

I wrote a post last week that talked about believing in abundance – really knowing that abundance exists. That belief in anything - down to the core of who you are – is an incredibly powerful force.

I must have made the wrong turn in Albuquerque.

So let's see what we can find here...
