The Gift of GAB

Seth Godin is blessed with the gift of GAB (Genuine Articulate Blogging).

In 60 seconds or less, he regularly influences my thinking with just a handful of choice words. Take this 99-word post for example:

Winner take all vs. local

Rule 1: If there’s no really good reason for a business to be done locally, it will migrate to the web.

Rule 2: Businesses that migrate to the web often have economies of scale, and those businesses quickly coalesce into just a few (or even one) winner.

The winning strategy for the local business or freelancer, then, is:

a. provide a product or service that truly works better when it’s local, and

b. do it in a way that works better when it’s small, custom, connected and not in search of economies of scale.

I read Seth’s blog – not skim it – because he enriches me with concise, thought-provoking copy. He’s mastered the gift of GAB.

I hope to do the same with my new blog.

If you can spare a minute (just one), check out my future posts.
