She smiled thinking, those were the days. The group in the car was waiting for her, with coffee already poured. Helge didn't look at all busy.
- Well I do get a lot of calls but I really only want to run the business and do the PR with major clients in Narvik and Kiruna.
We all know that magazines come and go like changes to the weather and people drop bundles of cash in the process.
The Social Media Start-ups are particularly vulnerable because they'll be at the upper end of the market where casualties are the highest and others to struggle badly are the very bottom end where hobbyists and other amateurs make unwise decisions to become publishers.

convinced to buy your company’s products or services, employees and
colleagues to go along with a new strategic plan or reorganization,

Our minds are 'traveling all over the place' all the time. The most fundamental challenge we face in the attention economy: how to pin down the wandering mind?
