Happy Birthday to DigNuggetville.com!

Hola Todos!

It seems as the year just flew past but today is a milestone post on DigNuggetville.com.  One year ago today, I posted the “Inaugural Post” outlining the mission and goals for DigNuggetville.  By enlarge, the blog stayed on course I’d say and I hope year number two builds from the nuggets gained from this past year’s experience.

In honor of today’s milestone, I reposted the Inaugural Post as well as the Top 10 Most Popular Posts for the year.

Thanks for interest in DigNuggetville!

Best regards,

Dr. Dan-o

Hola Todos!

I hope the summer has been treating us well.  For some time now, I have been cooking up the idea for – dignuggetville.com – so WELCOME to the inaugural post.

The number one mission of this blog is to disseminate, distribute, broadcast, circulate, etc., nuggets.  As you recall, nuggets are takeaways – a kernel of information you would like to stow away for future use.

Now in class, I made you record things in your journal (and yes I know a few of you out there still keep your journal alive).  Either way, I want to continue our conversation and share more nuggets.

The recording of nuggets is strongly rooted in learning theory and is the foundation of my teaching philosophy (click here for part one and click here for part two).   Broadly speaking, the main thrust of our discussion will involve (but not limited to) my main areas of interest:

  • Marketing Strategy
  • Marketing Research
  • Servant Leadership
  • Web 2.0/Social Media
  • Personal Selling and Sales Management
  • Consumer Behavior
  • Books/Business Media Recommendation
  • Networking (e.g., the old fashion face-to-face kind, as well as, the newer social media kind)
  • All things Apple Inc, Google, and the entire auto industry (just kidding)

Most importantly, I would like to hear from you.  If you are having a problem at work or want to talk through a career related decision, these are things I help out former students colleagues with on a weekly basis.  In summary, if there is something you would like to ask, please post a question.

Again, welcome to Dr. Dan-o’s creation – dignuggetville.com

Best regards,
Dr. Dan-o

Today is Dr. Dan-o’s Birthday!

Hola Todos!

Yup! Today is Dr. Dan-o’s birthday and it feels great to be 41 years young (remember yesterday’s post – language is powerful and “young” is a better word that “old”).

I’m probably going to drink a sugar-cane Coke-Cola with Puerto Rican rum Don Q Limon at some point but not before spending a wonderful lunch with mi chica Maggie.

Sure, I would love for you all to send me gifts (preferable US currency with noted Philadelphian Benjamin Franklin in the middle) but that is not necessary.  Instead, a better “gift” would be to recommend www.dignuggetville.com to one person who you feel would “dig” learning one good nugget a day.  Ask them to sign up for “nuggets” to be sent to their email account.

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate all the interest, participation (especially the Topic Talks), readership and questions.

All the best,

Dr. Dan-o
