A couple of weeks ago we discussed the salting v. tasting approach to business. If you missed it, I blogged about how some people are cautious and will taste their food to be sure it needs salt before reaching for the shaker. Others prefer to jump in and throw caution to the wind. They salt their steak without checking to see if it’s properly seasoned, even though it may lead to a super salty slab of meat later. Though I admitted to being a taster, I also know there are bennies and cons to each side.
I’m interested in learning if you’re a salter or a taster and why.
For the next week, I would love to read your blog posts discussing whether you take the cautious or jump in with both feet approach to business and life, and if I dig yours the most, I’ll send you a brand new smart phone.
So first some rules, and then we’ll talk about the prize.
- Title your post anything you want, as long as it lets us know whether you’re a salter or a taster and why this approach works for you.
- Link love isn’t necessary but it’s appreciated.
- Drop the link to your post in the comments section of this post.
- Contest ends July 6, 2010.
Do I have everything covered? Cool. Now, the prize.
So when I was at the Mashable Summit a few weeks ago, everyone in attendance received a free Motorola smart phone. I received a Motorola Devour with Motoblur, running on the Droid operating system. As I have a brand new Droid that I love dearly, I don’t need two phones. My options were to ebay it, give it away or have a contest. I’m choosing the contest. Please be advised this is a Verizon phone and it retails for about $150.
Pretty jazzy, right?
I’m looking forward to your post. My favorite gets the phone. It can be humorous, a video, a cartoon or anything else that you feel will get my attention. I like to award bonus points for creativity, so have fun with it.
Once again, the contest closes on July 5th. Are you a salter or a taster?
