Caring for Your Business

Marketing Inspiration

Every small business owner wants positive, helpful customer reviews.

With so many potential customers using Google to find the products and services they need, it’s critical that your business listing has a good number of Google reviews.

But how do you get more Google reviews?

You can ask existing customers after they visit, of course. But what about after hours?

On your website, you can provide an easy way for people to leave reviews. It can be a lengthy process, but there’s a great plugin to make Google reviews much easier. Check it out.

Caring for Yourself

Inspiration

Wherever you find yourself these days on the ubiquitous question of Artificial Intelligence (AI), there are many influential voices helping us on the journey to “wrapping our minds—and maybe even our hearts—around the new reality of AI.”

That way of thinking goes beyond wondering whether robots will take our jobs or worse, render humans redundant.

In this recent On Being podcast, Krista Tippet interviewed LinkedIn’s co-founder, Reid Hoffman. While they do not ignore the “many reasonable anxieties” surrounding AI, Hoffman is hopeful (and working toward solutions) that these new technologies will “help us elevate our humanity.”

Let’s hope he’s right. And maybe go beyond hoping. Maybe we can find our won small ways to work toward the ideals Hoffman promotes.
