HUNTERDON COUNTY ELECTED OFFICIALS 2018

GOOD HANDS

I photograph fairly often for Hunterdon County at its special events and I especially like being at the yearly reorganizational meeting. I’ve gotten to know and really respect these people. They are focused on making Hunterdon County the best it can be. We all know this and appreciate what they do. Below Matt Holt, 2018 Director, speaks to a packed room about the Freeholders’ vision for Hunterdon County.

RESOLVE

I don’t wait for new years to make resolutions. I make ’em everyday, all day. I’m always resolving to do something. Making resolutions is quite a lot of fun and feels really good. I highly recommend it. Don’t worry about whether you are keeping every resolution or not. The simple act of resolving always adds momentum in the right direction.

ABOUT VIDEOS

“About Videos” on a your website, if done well, can be a great way for people to learn about you, your products or your services. I visit websites because I am curious, I want to know more. That is why I am there. (And I like watching more than I like reading, so a quick video is always welcome!) Of course it’s a balance to get it just right for your audience. If you are authentic and professional you’ll get […]

WHO OWNS YOUR ATTENTION?

What are you looking at? What’s got your attention? We are often told to “pay” attention (especially when we are kids).  That must mean we own our attention and can “spend” it however it most benefits us, our growth and our development and those around us.  It’s an investment.

HAPPINESS OR SATISFACTION?

What are you trying to get out of your career?  Are you looking for happiness or do you want to be satisfied? Don’t answer.  It’s a trick question. They are the same thing.

SHARING SPACE & CUSTOMERS

It was a good weekend in Frenchtown.  Six businesses: a computer service business, three galleries, an artist and a photo studio, shared our spaces  to celebrate and to enjoy just being here.  It was collaboration on top of collaboration.  Not only did we share our spaces with other artists and other photographers, we shared our individual events with each other, sending visitors back and forth and boosting each other on social media. To commemorate my event and to thank the […]

LEVERAGING GOOGLE MAP AND GOOGLE EARTH

Locations matter when having events. People need to know where you are. Brokaw Photography Studio and five art galleries are having group shows in Frenchtown this weekend.  We’ve all posted our events on Facebook but when we do that we simply create six separate silos of information.  To bring us all together and to inform visitors of our locations I thought it would be great to create a live Google Maps and to locate all the galleries on Google Earth. […]

THE 65-10 RULE

Chances are you looked at Frank’s bright blue eyes before you read any text (yes, they are real!). I know I look at pictures before I read and most of us do.  That is why visual content is so important.  Not only does it get our attention but we remember it better. Dr. John Medina, a developmental molecular biologist, research consultant and  affiliate Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington School of Medicine  has been study how the brain works […]

WALKING FEET

BRAIN WALKING

Have you taken your brain for a walk today? If you’ve ever had  dogs you know how excited they can get when it’s time to go for walk.  They know it will feel good.  And it does. There is something about being outside and moving that makes the brain happy.  It clears cobwebs. The data show … “yada, yada… blah, blah.”  I don’t need no stinking data. My brain knows.
