Art of Life : There is no such thing as a non-wine drinker

A wise client of mine dealing with wine distribution once said “There is no such thing as a non-wine drinker, he just has not found a wine he likes … yet”.

In one of my interviews with a magazine 4 years ago about people finding love and destiny late in their life, i said “There is no such thing as anyone being too old to look for love, if you think there is someone out there for you, you must always keep seeking”

Indeed,  nothing is absolute. It’s not over until it’s over.

Never say “never” to yourself and others.

Do not always say “Always”

Be open, try a new approach, meet new people  and you discover life a lot more

When was the last time you did some cool stuff for the very first time and you absolutely love it?

What kind of wine is your life?

In Business, No News is Bad News

Many small and medium enterprises do not really understand how to work with the media to generate buzz and publicity. They often have a misconception that the media publicity is exclusive to big companies having huge budget for public relation specialists providing strategic counsel.

Media relation is both an art and a science. Knowing your basics and adding some creativity and flair will produce an effective pitch.

Understanding what constitute news and knowing what the media and press want will give your company a head start in gaining publicity. Having good publicity about your product and branding will always enhance the public perception on their value.

My first book ‘Romancing the Media for your Business” is an e-book I intend to sell online on Ipad.

Your comments and feedback is appreciated at – andrew@ideamart.com.sg
