This post is about to get deep. On my way to work today, I was listening to Dr. Wayne Dyer. Heard of him? He’s a motivational speaker of sorts. But he’s not so much motivating people as he is helping people to understand the power of the mind, the power of your thoughts, and the life you create.
Every single thought you allow in your mind has a ripple affect on not only the way you act but the things you invite into your life. This principle applies to family, love, health, happiness and even work. Today, I thought I’d talk about the impact of positive thinking and attitude on your working environment, your professional achievements and the success of your business.

Is breaking into the biz of creating new search engines and Web browsers feasible when you have O.G.s like Google and Firefox still running the show? Maybe. But it really depends on the definition of success. If history has anything to say, it’s that dominating the mainstream isn’t easy, and concepts looking to do that might not succeed.

I just got a peek at this month’s SEO Newsletter and I couldn’t help but try to land the scoop. This one’s got something for everyone — chunky tactics for implementing SEO in large organization environments; juicy results of research done by the Bruce Clay Australia team; and just the meatiest bits of SMX Advanced Seattle coverage.

SMX Advanced Seattle is arguably one of the top sources of search engine announcements and cutting-edge tactics. So when Susan was suddenly left to liveblog the conference without a number two as originally planned, she went MacGyver on us. The woman put together an impromptu blogger troop of experienced Internet marketers willing to tax their fingers and attention spans for the cause.
Alan Bleiweiss, Dana Lookadoo, and Gil Reich pumped up the liveblog posts with their personalities, astute observations and comprehensive session coverage. They did this with no guidelines, no training and no compensation (other than my eternal gratitude and a healthy bio on the post). However, there’s potential for stress anytime you lend your brand to a guest.

Alternate title: How to Do It Better Next Time
This week we opened up voting for the Small Biz Discovery Contest and we thought it was a good time to talk about mistakes we may have made in holding this contest and places we plan to improve in the future.
In the past we’ve held contests that asked people to donate SEO services to charity organizations, but in the final analysis, those contests may have had too many requirements and been too complicated to gain any significant level of participation. Major props to those who waded through the complicated rules and came out on the other side with really great projects that helped deserving non-profit organizations. We realize that these participants went above and beyond, and we couldn’t expect anyone else to do as much in the future.
