The 1981 smash-hit "Stripes." Just a classic Hollywood Comedy about a group of US Army misfits?

I believe one scene cuts to the chase of exactly what this thing we call Social Media and networking is at the core.

My favorite line was when they ask Bill Murray if he was ever convicted of a felony. "Convicted? No, not convicted."

A big fan of the movie Stripes. I like your style, maybe because it reminds me of my own? Either way, using real world examples to illustrate business principles, etc. is a valuable skill. I could sit here and type a long comment with a bunch of jargon and bore everyone out of their minds.

Yoni, you are wrong to say "I am a writer who has very little knowledge of the world of Business. I can't compete with other writers when it comes to SEO, Marketing or the like."

First off, business is 51% results, 49% BS. This is to say that as long as you get results it doesn't matter how(I'm not condoning illegal activity).

Whether you have gathered a huge business readership by relating aspects of Twilight to making money or giving SEO tips, you have gained a huge readership. That is what matters. At the end of the day, you are writing an article to spread a message.

Mir,

Thanks for an awesome comment, one of the most heartening I have ever recieved, that has me smiling from ear to ear!

Real world examples provide a great format for getting the message out.

Your message about BS and Business results provides a nice psychological foot in the door for people throughout the Biz and blogging community that you don't need to be an expert to succeed, just someone who is determined and can tell a good story.

I will be popping over immediately to check out your blog!

Thanks a million for your uplifting words!

Never seen the movie Yoni but after watching the clip I'd watch out for that Frances!

IL,

It's an American classic. It's on just about every top 10 comedy movie list which exists. I've seen it at least thirty times, maybe more. I highly recommend you give it a watch...although the Cold War has long since turned to Detente and warmer relations, it has not lost its effect!

Regards,

Yoni

Great post again Yoni. You seem to have an endless supply of unique ways to illustrate your points. A lesson to everyone.

Social Media lesson of today: "Never hit anyone in anger... unless you're absolutely sure you can get away with it.

Alastair,

Thanks!

The fact is that out of all of the unique ideas, very, very few are actually mine. They are just things which I find in movies, on TV, in books, and outdoors which give birth to things to write about.

The fact is I need these ideas. I am a writer who has very little knowledge of the world of Business. I can't compete with other writers when it comes to SEO, Marketing or the like, so I make it my job to entertain blog readers. Somehow it has worked and I'm finding a good stream of customers.

I always say, "Good ideas to write about aren't found sitting in front of the computer, they need the stimuli from looking at the world."

Great Social Media lesson! Hit hard and run like the Dickens!
