Okay, to be fair to Seth, let’s put the title of this post in context. I interviewed Seth on a recent live session for my coaching excellence series and we talked about the natural advantages of small business and how to take advantage in a down market.
At some point he said – “If people aren’t talking about you, there’s a reason. You’re boring – your products are boring, your services are boring, your message is boring, your marketing is boring . . .”
You get the point. And he’s right. There’s no excuse for being unremarkable – the bar is so dang low. Because most of your competition is even more boring.

The twittersphere gets pretty active during these sessions and here are a few hightlights from folks tweeting during the call.
