Sally Hogshead has a gift for YOU

This post isn’t about me. It’s about YOU!

Branding expert and leading authority on the science of fascination, Sally Hogshead, is published her new book How the World Sees You on July 1.

To celebrate the insights gained from a decade of research, she is launching Project Fascination with the goal of showing 100,000 people how their personalities add value.

As a part of this project, she’s given me a special code (BL-JosMarti78) to share with to you. The first 100 people who use it to take her Fascination Advantage® assessment will receive the assessment for
free! This has never been done before, and will only last until July 25.

The best part is, you will trigger a chain reaction—a pay it forward situation. When you take the assessment using BL-JosMarti78, you will receive 100 assessments to share with your circle for free, too! That’s $3700 of free market research at your fingertips!

So how do you take the assessment? Simple.
1. Go to HowTheWorldSeesYou.com/you and use code BL-JosMarti78.
2. Once you’ve taken the assessment, Sally’s team will load 100 assessments into your new account. Rinse and repeat.

That’s it. Now you’re ready to discover how your personality is custom built for certain situations, and which situations you should learn to avoid. And it only takes 5 minutes (you can even do it on your phone!)

28 questions. 5 minutes. A whole new way to communicate your value.

Your Fascination Advantage® Report is the first big step towards knowing how your personality can be heard and remembered in an overcrowded market. Sharing the assessment will help others do the
same. Find everything you need to put this knowledge into practice with your co-­‐workers, close friends and significant other in Sally’s new book, How the World Sees You.

Remember that your code will expire July 25. Don’t let this $3700 value go to waste! Take the Assessment today and encourage your friends and followers to do the same.

We occasionally fight but we never use guns, yet still they call our group a mob. And even though I’m usually only 4 feet 11 inches high, people still consider me the biggest. What kind of beast am I?

Answer: male red kangaroo.

here is the entire text of the beautiful poem Neil composed:
I will write in words of fire.
I will write them on your skin.
I will write about desire.
Write beginnings, write of sin.
You’re the book I love the best,
your skin only holds my truth,
you will be a palimpsest
lines of age rewriting youth.
You will not burn upon the pyre.
Or be buried on the shelf.
You’re my letter to desire:
And you’ll never read yourself
I will trace each word and comma
As the final dusk descends,
You’re my tale of dreams and drama,
Let us find out how it ends.
-Neil Gaiman

World Book Night 2014

I know it’s morning rather than night, but I gave out my first handful of books! Made my local starbucks baristas very happy this morning!

The Poulnabrone Dolmen, County Clare, Ireland. Classified as a portal tomb, this structure dates to the Neolithic period, radiocarbon dates place its use between 3,800 - 3,600 BCE.
During excavations the skeletal remains of up to 22 prehistoric individual were found, which included both adults and children, as well as one newborn. Extensive specialist analysis has been done on these remains, offering us a rare insight into the lives of these Neolithic people. 

[…] A variety of artefacts, presumably representing grave goods, were also recovered from the burial chamber. These included a polished stone axe, two stone beads, a decorated bone pendant, a fragment of a mushroom-headed bone pin, two quartz crystals, several sherds of coarse pottery, three chert arrowheads and three chert/flint scrapers.
The burial evidence from Poulnabrone has given us rare glimpse into the lives of our early ancestors. It appears that they endured a relatively tough existence, that involved hard physical labour, childhood illnesses, occasional violent attacks and early deaths. Although only a small section of the community were deemed worthy of burial in the tomb, there is little evidence for gender or age discrimination, with both male and female remains present as well as young and old. Prior to interment their bones appear to have been stored elsewhere and this may indicate that they were venerated as ancestor relics. Why certain individuals were chosen to be buried in the seemingly exalted location of a megalithic tomb, however, remains a mystery.
