Re: Wolff drives women forwards with full Formula One test - http://www.cnn.com/2013...
"I have been watching @Susie_Wolff 's career over the past few years and I think she is a real talent. I was glad to see her @WilliamsF1Team test was a success. I also appreciate Susie's self assessment which I thought was honest as she completes another critical step in the process of earning an F1 seat. Congratulations to the management at Williams F1 for recognizing Susie's talent and providing her with a platform to express it! James Holmes Conscious Entrepreneur" - James Holmes

Re: Kyle Petty on Danica Patrick: "She's not a racecar driver" - http://www.racer.com/kyle-pe...
"Back in 2003 a business associate and I secured a corporate suite for that years Denver Grand Prix and based on its location hosted Danika Patrick, her father and mother for the CART Indy Car portion of the event weekend. Danika had driven in the Formula Atlantic event earlier for Rahal Racing. At that time it was apparent to me that Danika was both a passionate competitor and a future marketing machine... both of which are highly prized in every form of professional motorsports. Although I am a fan of Kyle Petty for what he has done both on and off the track, I do not understand why he has decided to make such misguided comments. Danika's record in many series speaks for itself and she has earned her chance in NASCAR Sprint Cup. Keeping in mind that this is her first full season in Sprint Cup I believe she should be given a fair chance to rise to the level of her potential, whatever that may be. As to her marketing prowess she is great for the sport and I would suspect both Stewart..." - James Holmes

Re: Penske: IndyCar needs strong leader - http://www.racer.com/penske-...
"I was actively involved on the commercial and media side of the former CART in the mid 90s including the Andrew Craig era. I remember quite vividly the power struggle that resulted in the split of the series and the formation of the IRL. Indy Car racing is certainly the healthiest that it has been since those troubling days and I like Mr. Penske see a great opportunity to finally move Indy Car racing forward in a powerful way. The NASCAR model clearly works and the commercial success and major manufacturer support is a testament to this fact. U applaud Mr. Penske's comments and I would love to see the other stake holders likewise demand a higher standard of leadership going forward." - James Holmes

Re: 5 Ways Social Media Can Ruin Your Reputation - http://www.entrepreneur.com/blog...
"Hello Jess - Thank you for your comment in reply to my remarks. I think the headline is not a match for the content in the article. I stand by my comments and I do think some good points are made. Perhaps a title promising useful tips when posting on social media sites would be more accurate." - James Holmes

Re: Bob Johnson moves way beyond BET - http://money.cnn.com/2012...
"Dinah - Great article! I had the pleasure of meeting Bob Johnson a little more then a decade ago in Virginia associated with equestrian show jumping which Bob's former wife Shiela and daughter were actively involved in. He struck me as being an extremely bright man and very passionate about the mission of the BET network. I think it is great to acknowledge the accomplishments of entrepreneurs based on their merit and knowing the right people by becoming an efffective networker is a high value merit to be sure. I really enjoyed reading this article. Thank you! James Holmes The Cubicle Escape Artist" - James Holmes

Re: 5 Ways Social Media Can Ruin Your Reputation - http://www.entrepreneur.com/blog...
"Hello Lewis - Nice tips and great advice. A key point to remember about socila media is that once you press the send, post, or tweet button you are committed... as Donald Trump so painfully experienced last week you cannot delete or call your comments back. There are so many reposting tools and social sharing tools that immediately repost your content that it is impossible to take back what you later regret. So, I always advise people to be thoughtful when they post. Thank you for your post here. James Holmes The Cubicle Escape Artist" - James Holmes

Re: 3 Rookie Entrepreneurial Mistakes from 'Start-Ups: Silicon Valley' - http://www.entrepreneur.com/blog...
"Stephanie -   I am a bit of a fan of business oriented reality programs, so I watched the first episode of Start-Up on Monday. I was amazed by the misteps made by Ben and Hermione and as soon as Ben introduced himself as an owner of 42 companies across three continents that the pitch was over. Focus is a critical factor for business success and this was a major blunder.   Venture Capital communities are small... so pitches have to be measured and every opportunity must be maximized. If a venture becomes too shopped around, the community of venture capitalist will know about it lkely stay away from it. Great observations in your post. Thank you!

"Hello Bud - I wasn't sure what you were referring to at first but I now realize that "U-Stream" where the original video was hosted was playing a commercial ahead of my video and I assume you thought that was for my benefit, which it was not. Therefore, I have uploaded the video to You Tube and embedded the You Tube source to eliminate that confusion and misconception as you expressed. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Re: Beware of the ‘Big Special Deal’ in Network Marketing a Lesson from Eric Worre - http://askjamesholmes.com/beware-...
"Elysse - Thank you for your taking the time to read my post and comment. I consider you an expert in the process of evaluating home business opportunities and I often recommend your book "How to Find the Real Deal Without Getting the Raw Deal" as it will save the reader much frustration and lead to better decisions. It is often the case that the most successful entrepreneurs take a ill advised turn or two on their journey to achieving success... the key is to move forward smarter and evermore determined to find the real deal!

"Hello Marilyn - Thank you for making time to read my post and comment. It is amazing when read or hear the stories of service men and women and realize what commitment it takes honorably serve in the military. Good people have argued about war through every conflict which has occurred... there are many opinions. But I think we can all agree that those who serve deserve our gratitude and respect." - James Holmes

Re: Email Still Unbeatable for Online Marketing - Perth, Western Australia - http://makethemclick.com.au/library...
"Hello Mark - Very interesting results and I am encouraged because I am a big proponent of email marketing. I think there is a balancing act... the numbers speak for themselves but do not diminish the value of social media for its unique value. I always teach to use social media to make connections, build relationships, brand yourself, and build a list. Once you have brought someone into your sales funnel (sells process)... add value and make quality offers through email using your permission base list. Really great post with lots of insights!

Re: Top Tier Mailer by Matthew Graves a Full Review - http://askjamesholmes.com/top-tie...
"Hello Amy - Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I am not sure what God knows, but I know 'exactly' how many people open my email promotions sent through safe-list and viral mailers because I track every email to include click through rates and conversions to opt-ins and/or sales. I am not aware if you have ever actually tried using these types of sites and tracked results or if your opinion is based on intuition or what you have heard from others. I have used this platform as just one of many pillars of marketing for over four years. In addition, these types of sites are great for marketers on a budget as well as a great place to test 'subject lines' and 'email copy' before placing more expensive premium solo ads or ad swaps. I hope insight from someone who has learned to make these types of sites work ads value to the conversation and I welcome your future comments. Have a blessed week! James" - James Holmes

Re: Top Tier Mailer by Matthew Graves a Full Review - http://askjamesholmes.com/top-tie...
"Hello Ethan - Thank you for commenting and I do not take what you have said as negative. It is 100% typical when a viral mailer or safelist opens that the owner delays mailing privlidges until the membership size grows large enough to make mailing practical.. typically 2,000 to 3,000 members. Consider a site that gives members the opportunity to mail to 2,000 members every 3 days. What value is present if there are a few hundred members in total to mail to? For this reason program owner pause mailing for a couple of weeks and I have seen up to a month after the launch date. The best way to leverage the site until then is to promote the site to grow the membership, build your downline, and earn commissions. Be sure to comment once you  have had a chance to mail a few times and let me know your trhoughts. I am confident you will gain benefit from this site. Have a blessed week! James" - James Holmes

Re: Cyber Bullying Exist in the Traffic Exchange World - http://askjamesholmes.com/cyber-b...
"Hello Wendy - I think Mark and I are in complete agreement on the core principles stated in his comments as I stated. Here is the point... there is a huge difference in pulling someone aside in private and offering constructive criticism or guidance to help everyone involved as opposed to 'flaming them in public' as judge, jury, and executioner. Likewise, there is a huge difference between offering a constructive review of a website or offering a warning based on fact as opposed to  being motivated by a desire to build your business by tearing down another. I think most everyone would agree on that. Mark Hodgetts is a tremendous person and offers some great advice supported by his personal experiences as expressed in his comments above. Thank you for commenting!" - James Holmes
