Ross – thank you very much for that inspirational interview!
This article is an old post that I just rediscovered.
A while ago I heard about this ingenious program which is called Replace Me and the Program which basically about replacing myself. It’s all about outsourcing and how you can get to know people that can work for you and do a great job doing the stuff you did before. This is basically about replacing you.

Dear Ex-Facebook friend.
If you cannot read this post you have just been unfriended.
Top 5 reasons are:
- You bring negativity into my life
- You don’t value the gift of life
- You behave disrespectful against others
- Your post spam
- You do not take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings and actions
If any of the above describe your behaviour, but you can still read this post – you are next in line.
Let me tell you about a concept I have when I try to analyze human group behavior as well as individual behavior. I call it the Caveman Principle.
A lot of companies are rushing into social media right now. They have heard that Facebook and Twitter are the places to be. They need to be stepping up now and they may be too late as the social media is the future. With all of these and the stories you hear, I’m here to tell you DON’T RUSH!
At the moment, I am going through a course on sustainable development in a business context. This means I am answering questions such as how we can build businesses that have all three P’s: People, Planet, and Profit.
Last week at AFS Germany national training weekend Sherifa Fayez, the head of AFS Egypt, gave a speech that will be remembered by everyone in the room. It was full of passion and honest emotions. While Sherifa brought Tahir Square to this room in Germany our eyes filled with tears and our hearts were touched in a very special way.
Sometimes – to me politics is what happens at the 8 o’clock news. I tend to forget that democracy means the “rule of the people” – and that it is major struggle to reclaim that power one in a while.
You have deeply inspired me - Thank you Sherifa!
A lot of companies are asking me about social media since I started making websites and doing search engine optimization. Now, as it seems to be the case, everything is moving towards social media and so are my clients. Thus, I have been asked to give a workshop on social media by different agencies. Furthermore, it’s interesting because they all want to have something which is a combination of a workshop and a coaching project.
My business is developing a lot. If you have followed me you would have seen me make a switch from focusing on blogging to content management, then to SEO or Search Engine Optimization, and then on to social media just recently. I have also been asked to help people develop sustainable business models for a digital environment. Those are the things that I am busy with.
