Friday Focus roundup? What happened to the Friday review?
Well this is still the Friday review, but under a new title. The big reason for the change was when we think about focus and what it means, alot of what I talk about on Friday is about Adlandpro, the members and what you are all doing and yes I throw in a bit of what is going on outside the walls of Adlandpro as that is also needed to inform, educate or entertain, so I welcome you to the Friday Focus…stick around, join in and share it with all your friends!
Can you believe it is August already? where has the time gone, it will almost be time for the kids to go back to school and many families will be getting back to regular routines…but not just yet!

Just to give you a glimpse of some of the things that Hafiz shares…
Barbara Delguidice has been holding classes for AdKreator.com every Wednesday and Friday. If you are interested in learning about lead captures, how to make your own banners, website headers and other cool things, then make a point of adding Barb as a friend and learn from a pro ( she is a pretty cool person just to know anyways)
David Rowland shared that one of Adlandpro’s new members, Roger Hart, has started a forum on buying, repairing, and learning more about the vast array of different bicycles on the market. His forum is at Bicycles, The Ins and Outs drop by and learn something new.
Jen Cua is also a new member who has been sharing her wealth of knowledge to the members of Adlandpro. I want to share her one video because it is something that many people need to think about. As she has put it so eloquently “Most people are quite skeptic to quit their job especially if you are 100% dependent to your monthly salary. The most frequently questions that you normally hear….Can I really afford to quit my job?” How would you answer this question?
Here is a bit of trivia for you – do you know what onomatopoeia means? give up? It’s a word that phonetically imitates or suggests the source of the sound it describes. One of these words is “flip-flops and as everyone knows the name of these kind of sandals came about because of the sound that is made when you walk in them.
Why am I mentioning this ( apart from the cool name onomatopoeia), it’s because Christina A. is selling these very cool sandals. What makes them even better is that if you love coffee then you will love these..um flip-flops
Calling all Pinterest lovers and I know many of the Adlanders certainly are..Pinterest is making changes! I read a post by Deborah Sweeny talking about these changes that includes th “Do Not Track” Feature, the New “Edit Home Feed” Button and iPhone and iPad Shortcuts. Its a good read so head over to 3 Benefits Pinterest’s Latest Features Provide Business Accounts and find out more.
Another Friday focus is drawing to a close and just like in the past, its time for some inspiration
The flower Gift
The Most Beautiful Flower
The park bench was deserted as I sat down to read Beneath the long, straggly branches of an old willow tree. Disillusioned by life with good reason to frown, For the world was intent on dragging me down.
And if that weren’t enough to ruin my day, A young boy out of breath approached me, all tired from play. He stood right before me with his head tilted down And said with great excitement, “Look what I found!”
In his hand was a flower, and what a pitiful sight, With its petals all worn – not enough rain, or too little light. Wanting him to take his dead flower and go off to play, I faked a small smile and then shifted away.
But instead of retreating he sat next to my side And placed the flower to his nose and declared with surprise, “It sure smells pretty and it’s beautiful, too. That’s why I picked it; here, it’s for you.”
The weed before me was dying or dead. Not vibrant of colors, orange, yellow or red. But I knew I must take it, or he might never leave. So I reached for the flower, and replied, “Just what I need.”
But instead of him placing the flower in my hand, He held it mid-air without reason or plan. It was then that I noticed for the very first time That weed-toting boy could not see: he was blind.
I heard my voice quiver, tears shone like the sun As I thanked him for picking the very best one. “You’re welcome,” he smiled, and then ran off to play, Unaware of the impact he’d had on my day.
See you next Friday and if you can think of anyone who would enjoy this edition of the Adlandpro Friday focus, then feel free to share, tweet, like and Plus.
Have a great week!
