Over 60 Countries Visiting Our Leadership Blog
Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 28, 2008
What has happened to our Leadership Blog is beyond comprehension. I started this blog with little fanfare as a way to serve the greater leadership
community. Through word of mouth and a concept called Six Degrees of Separation—this blog has exploded worldwide! I can’t wait until mid-February, as I will be able to share the research I have compiled in several different areas. The amount of countries reading and commenting (Some in other languages) has startled me. There are 36 countries visiting our site daily to learn leadership development and life coaching. Here are the daily
United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, India, Sweden, Germany, Haiti, Philippines, Netherlands, Bahamas, Poland, Hungary, Denmark, South Africa, Thailand, France, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Portugal, Norway, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Malaysia, Japan, Spain, Kenya, Bulgaria, Belgium, Ireland, Romania, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Brazil
There are 28 countries visiting weekly to catch up on leadership and life coaching. Here is the weekly list of countries:
Saudi Arabia, Cameroon, Virgin Islands, U.S., Croatia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Russian Federation, Egypt, Pakistan, Malta, Oman, Bermuda, Austria, Czech Republic, Iran, Islamic Republic of, Afghanistan, Slovakia, Estonia, Chile, Taiwan, Ecuador, Cyprus, Korea, Republic of, Kuwait, Hong Kong,
There are other countries that I did not include because of minimal visits on our site. Who knows what the future has in store as we build a worldwide
community. I consider myself a Maven—someone who does research in many areas to save people time and money for all of our benefits. Here is a portion of the Wiki definition for a Maven:
In recent years, economists have spent a great deal of time studying Mavens, for the obvious reason that if marketplaces depend on information, the people with the most information must be the most important. For example, sometimes when a supermarket wants to increase sales of a given product, they’ll put a promotion sticker in front of it, saying something like
“Everyday Low Price!” The price will stay the same. The product will just be
featured more prominently. When they do that, supermarkets find that invariably the sales of the product go through the roof, the same way they would if the product had actually been put on sale.
But if we’ll buy more of something even if the price hasn’t been lowered, then what’s to stop supermarkets from never lowering their prices? The answer is that although most of us don’t look at prices, every retailer knows that a very small number of people do, and if they find something amiss, a promotion, that’s not really a promotion they’ll do something about it. If a store tried to pull the sales stunt too often, these are the people who would figure it out and complain to management and tell their friends and acquaintances to avoid the store. These are the people who keep the marketplace honest. One name for them is “price vigilantes.” The other, more common, name for them is “Market Mavens.”
If I see something with a good value proposition, I will share with everyone.
If I discover misleading scams, unethical dealings, or poor character based leadership, I will expose this also. The goal is to improve people’s lives by doing more of what is right and less of what is wrong. Can you see how through this blog, we can all make a difference in our world? Let’s build our leadership community and see what doors God’s Providence opens for us. As to the future; all I can say is, “Bring it!” God Bless, Orrin Woodward
