Novel Travel Hack: Quick Guide to Luggage Storage Services

Traveling and Need Luggage Storage Services?

I love this idea – from Lifehacker: How to Stash Your Luggage for a Couple of Hours When Traveling. I’m constantly having my AirBnB guests message me saying they arrived early and do I know of any luggage storage services or can they come drop off their bags early. I formerly feel bad, because I would say no to both questions. When you rent out part of your home to Travelers, you understand that sometimes you just need a few hours to yourself before the next ones roll in. Also, sometimes turning over the unit takes a little bit longer.

luggage storage is the new airBnB for your bags!

Well, I’m happy to report some folks have figured out that there is a need for this service and they now provide it. Check out this article for a handy list of luggage storage vendors 🎒💼🌐

Sweet New App Creates Digital Business Model Canvas

Score of the Day: ‘Strategyzer’ App

The need to create a business model canvas app has been tasked to yours truly. At least our team has established doing the canvas over a business plan. Doesn’t the idea of writing a plan for a business just bore you to tears? A newly minted MBA shouldn’t be saying that I know. I’m only being honest.

When I was still in the program, our class received a PDF file of the business model canvas (about a year ago). You know, like where I could print the paper out and write in my canvas notes.

Uh, no.

That might work for some people and/or teams. Pas moi, mon cherie.

These days, before I do “grunt” work of any type I stop and first ponder “Is there not already be an app that just does that?”

People talk about me being so “tech savvy”. Maybe it’s because I love tech, or maybe because I’m lazy and I’ve already done a lot of chopping wood and carrying water in my day… more likely a combo of the two.

Today I’m pretty stoked about something I found in that beautiful space that is the world wide web. It’s called Strategyzer, an “app that does that”. And then some. Score.

If you happen to be working on developing a business model and you would rather do it digitally, use this tool. Don’t worry if you need the business model canvas explained, there are helpful tutorials all around the app, making your work and learning fast and efficient.

Create Business Model Canvas Charts On The Fly

Strategyzer allows you to quickly map your current business model worksheet online and you can even work with team members in real-time. Yes!

There you have it! I recommend all entrepreneurs, mompreneurs, businesswomen, businessmen, MBA students and graduates go and check ’em out – business model canvas app: http://www.strategyzer.com

I’m excited because I love it when my practice of having an empty mind ends up delivering me with exactly what I need when I need it.

This is the gist of the practice:

  1. Firstly, do not carry information around in head if can be helped. Pursuit is for Quiet Mind, not noisy mind filled with “information”.
  2. Secondly, use the internet to brainstorm research (e.g. hunt around on Google) until what you’re looking for is found.

By DAVE SMITH March 10, 2015, Business Insider.

Most “experts” explain net neutrality in a convoluted, hard to understand way…thus issue commonly misunderstood. Reddit user overhears his 9-year old son explain concept of net neutrality to his buddy using simplistic ice cream shop analogy: shop gives free milkshakes to anyone with their own straw. Seller of the straw pinches straw demanding more money.
