what no body yet has thought about that which everyone sees.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

I have worked using the Internet for communicating with target audiences for a decade in Washington, DC.  Because of my track record of online success in our nation's capitol, I know that I can help you win over your target audiences using pinpointed online efforts. In addition to my onlinesuccesses, my unique dual background includes traditional management of issues, messages, projects, corporate change, creative staff, and crisis communication to achieve strategic plans for diverse audiences, venues, spokespersons, channels, and media. See what I have to offer you by visiting my site at www.goulartonline.com or send email to woody@goulartonline.com or call 703-995-0850 today.  Thank you!

***  Ned’s mispelled Faye’s name:

In case anyone tried to find me to comment through Google or something
after reading [my comment about Black Friday], the spelling of my name
is Rapoport instead of Rapaport…thanks!

(Maybe you should change your name to be consistent.)

(They named a play after me – I'm not Rappaport!)

***  JOTW available online?

Is JOTW available only by email or can it be reviewed online?

This question was posted in JOTW 49-2005…exactly one year ago.  Here’s
the answer I offered then:

To subscribe, send a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.To read
online, go to
www.cornerbarpr.com, and look for bar tools and trolling
for jobs. Also, you can real all back issues at
http://lists.topica.com/lists/JOTW/read.

Well, all this is about to change.  Yes, JOTW is about to embark on its
long threatened web presence.  I said when I topped 10,000 members in
the network I would get a website, and perhaps gather a few coins

tossed in the basket.  The basket is being prepared, and the web presence is being, um, presenced, thanks to Woody Goulart
(
http://www.g2communications.com/).  It’s not ready for prime time yet,
and in any event I don’t want your cash until 2007, for tax simplicity
purposes.  I’m sure some of the cleverer members of the network might

be able to find the website and peak under the tent. 

When Mike Klein and I conducted the JOTW survey last spring, we found
that 30% of the 1,000 people who responded to the survey said they

would be willing to pay $25 or more for JOTW.  So, while JOTW will continue to be free, those who contribute $25 will receive “Senior Networker” status and access to the member’s only section of the website.

Sponsorship on the entire newsletter and website is available for just
$1,000 for an entire month.  This price will go up in 2007.  Then it
will go way up after that, into the “Superbowl” range of ad costs, so
lock your ads in now before they shoot through the roof.

I will continue to post the newsletter by e-mail.  It’s important to me
to keep the network intact, and I believe in push over pull.  Some of
you don’t seem to be able to access the big newsletter, so I’ll give

you a teaser to let you know the newsletter is posted.

Posting jobs will continue to be free.  However, if a recruiter wants

to rush an announcement to the network before the next issue of the
newsletter comes out they will be able to do so by means of a “Can’t
Wait” posting for just $200.  Again, this is another introductory offer
that will most certainly rise shortly after the website is inaugurated.

So that’s it.  Three ways to help Ned take his wife on a 25th
anniversary “third honeymoon.”  Sign up to be a senior networker;
sponsor the newsletter; or send a “can’t wait” posting.  Oh, and you

can buy books that I’ve reviewed on the “Read, Write, Returning” page. 
You’ll see Amazon links at the end of each review. 

As always, I welcome your feedback.

***  From Donna Papacosta:

Well, Ned, one of the things I'm grateful for is your JOTW. Even though
I have my own business and am not looking for employment, I enjoy
reading your weekly newsletter. You have done a fantastic job of
creating a community. I'm sure your new Web site will be well received!

Thanks too for running the notice about my upcoming podcasting Webinar.
Quite a few of your readers have already registered for this free
session after reading about it in JOTW. I appreciate your getting the
word out.

***  Ned wants to know:

What is Frappr?

What is Second Life?

***  Slipper Rant:

Ed,
 
I have to ask why the following was included in the latest issue of
JOTW?

I don't understand why anyone would want to know about this–what is

the value of including it? May I suggest that you put this type of item at the end of the JOTW and not at the beginning for us to have to sift
through before we get to the valuable information about job listings.
Thank you for your consideration.
 
Sincerely,
Patricia Lute

(How long have you been a member of the network?)

More than five years, I believe.

(And you didn't like the ending, where after I go through all of that
hassle to get the new slippers I end up taping the old ones together?
 
Well, if you have been reading JOTW for five years-plus you know the
sense of community comes before the dry, dull jobs.)

***  Rant was right on:

Ned:

I always enjoy the JOTW newsletter, but the Black Friday story from

Faye
Rapaport made a particularly strong impression today. I have shared it
with several friends and family members. It captures perfectly my
distaste and unease about the growing consumerism that seems to pervade
nearly every aspect of the holiday season in America.

Thank you for sharing it.

***  From Ricardo Vosa:

Dear Mr Lundquist,

First of all, I enjoy reading your emails early in the morning along
with my coffee. I look through them desperately looking for a position
that suits me well. I am 23 years old and a recent college graduate
looking for work in the Communication/PR domain. It is becoming
increasingly difficult to find any sort of entry level position that is
near my area (Northern New Jersey). As a student at Rutgers University (10-1 by the way) I was a spokesman and PR coordinator for a student-based organization named NJNEWSWATCH, which attempted to give NJ residents a local news source (since New York has taken up all the other news stations). My experience is limited, however I am currently working for PSE&G part-time while I find my career-starting job. If you could assist me in any capacity I would be truly grateful. Thanks for your time and keep up the great work!

Sincerely,

Ricardo “The Scarlet Knight” Vosa II (ricardoov2@hotmail.com)

***  From Robin Mayhall, APR:

Hey all,

I just thought I would pass this along.

A good friend of mine works at the Lance Armstrong Foundation. As you
can see from her e-mail below, they are running a contest for the staff
to promote the online store.

Between now and December 22, use the coupon code (BNEY) to order
anything from the LAF store at 25% off (
http://www.store-laf.org/).

Each
staff member has been given a coupon code to send to friends and

family,
and whoever brings in the most orders wins a gift certificate donated

by
a local merchant.
 
Proceeds support the Lance Armstrong Foundation, so buy stuff for
yourself, your family, your friends, and even your dog.

Some of the stuff is pretty cute. If you have friends or family who are
outdoorsy, who like Lance Armstrong, and/or are cancer patients or
survivors, you might find a holiday gift idea here — and get a 25
percent discount!

Enjoy!
Robin

(I asked Christine what she meant by the top 10%.)

Ned,

Great question.  Several months ago we set out to hire a chief

marketing
officer for our organization.  We successfully brought in Sharon

Jenkins
as the CMO  a couple months ago and she is developing an internal
strategic marketing, communications, and public relations group for

SPX.
 Sharon is an amazingly talented marketing and communications
professional and we are looking for people who are exceptional to join
her team.  The statement, “… to isolate the top 10% of professional
talent….” will hopefully convey that we are searching for the best of
the best.  We want people who have records of achievement and are a
clear cut above the masses to join the CMO organization.  I hope that
makes sense to you.

I came across some articles on-line today that mentioned your
accomplishments, you have an impressive track record.  I am certain

that
you are well respected in the industry and I would like to sincerely
thank you for passing my information along to your colleagues (thank

you
Debbie for sending my message to Ned).  I hope to find the right person
for the position before the end of the year.

Thanks again for reaching out to me.  Feel free to call me if you have
any questions.
 
Have a great day.

Christine

Payment is on a lo/no/deferred basis.
It wasn’t that Boogie wanted things to turn out this way, she simply

had
no choice. The evidence she paid for clearly supported her suspicions

of
her husband’s infidelity. She simply wanted revenge.

Disco was fed-up with the direction of her life; a dead end job as a
make-up girl in the cosmetic section of a department store with dreams
of making it big and moving to Vegas.

Daddy-O on the other hand, had bigger problems. An unfortunate incident
occurred that landed him in Mr. Smith’s pocket which meant he owed Mr.
Smith. You NEVER owe Mr. Smith.

To make things worse, Disco constantly reminded Daddy-O of the promise
he made six months ago to turn their lives around; leaving this town

and
heading for the bright lights of Vegas. But, “A LOT CAN HAPPEN ON THE
WAY TO VEGAS.”

A short film I have writen and looking to shoot in time for summer 07
film festivals. Great opp. for student filmmakers to work on an
experimental piece.

Need Student film crew:

-AD -DP -Camera person -Script Super. -Lighting -Sound -Boom & Grip,
etc.

This is a no paying gig but you will be fed and get credit upon
completion. Please contact me immediately for sample script.

Serious inquiries ONLY.

***  From Bridget Serchak:

If you have the time, I’m going to be singing in the Potomac Harmony
Chorus (part of Sweet Adelines International – the barbershop
organization for women) for their holiday (we sing a couple of Hanukkah
songs too!) concert on December 18th at 8 pm at Ballston Common Mall

(on
Metro’s Orange Line) – look for us in the food court area. Lots of
parking too.

They offered me five weeks of free voice lessons and a chance to sing

in
this concert. The concert is free, so please bring family members,
neighbors and friends!

There are about 100 women in the chorus, so if I mess up, others will
drown me out!

This is just one more thing on the list of things I’ve always wanted to
do (sing publicly in a concert) that I can now cross off!
Here’s “my” group:
http://www.potomacharmony.org/ (there is another
holiday concert they do on 12/17 at TJ Community Center at 3 pm listed
on their Web site – I won’t be singing in that one, but I’ll be there
singing along in the audience). They have won the regional contest five
times, including this past year.   I assure you – you will be coming to
hear a GREAT group of singers for a wonderful concert. And if you have
never heard a barbershop chorus, you are in for a treat.
