Sometimes a project is simply fun to work on. This is one of them…more to follow soon. A movie, filmed in Knoxville, Tennessee.

It’s that time of year, when everyone is talking about resolutions. Half the billboards are about ways to lose weight, look better, or ignore how heavy and out of shape you are by enjoying a large bottle of liquor. A better business year for 2013 is only a few simple resolutions away. Take these simple

z11 communications is happy to be working with Mudsanity, the mud run of Olympic proportions. Mudsanity is a 5-mile mud run with obstacles designed by Olympic athletes and based on Olympic events. WBIR’s Darin’ Erin visited recently to test out the course. The full slideshow can be found here, a link to the story is coming

“There’s something very important I forgot to tell you! Don’t cross the streams… It would be bad… Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.” – Egon Spengler / Ghostbusters. Was Egon Spengler talking about Protonic Reversal or Social Media?

Nothing major, but we’ve updated the z11 communications web site a bit during the holiday. The circus theme is here to stay, but a few changes were necessary to reflect who we’ve become. It’s amazing how outdated text can become after three years. I’d encourage you, even if you’re happy with your current site, to

For the first few weeks after the launch of Google + it seemed that nearly every blog entry was about the pending success or pending failure of Google+. I’m still working on that article, I haven’t decided yet. For now, however, join z11 communications on Google + and explore with us. Sample work, chatter, trial

Carly Harrington with the Knoxville News Sentinel recently contacted me for some 2011 social media predictions. Knowing that she’d not be able to use them all, or use them unedited, I decided to post them here for everyone to see. Admittedly, these are pretty safe predictions, but they’re intended to be useful to those that

15 minutes of fame has become something that is expected, and thanks to social media and reality television (I argue that they are basically the same thing), people can simply go out and claim them. Michelle Bombshell McGee and Rachel Uchitel are the bottom-feeders of the lot, but half the people we know are doing everything within

Eco-Logical Environmental Solutions & Pest Management Corporation (EES), Knoxville’s local and family owned pest management company, offers Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs for residential pest control and for commercial pest control. EES services are designed to protect a client’s environment against household insects, wood destroying organisms and rodent pests.

In addition to a “Green” approach to General Pest Control, EES is specially trained in new construction pre-treatments that provide homeowners with long-term structural protection against subterranean termites. These environmentally sensitive applications are both EPA and HUD allowed and qualify builders for “Green Points” through various Associations such as the U.S. Green Building Council.

My wildest dreams wouldn't have predicted the excitement and growth at z11 communications over the last few months. Keeping that in mind, I have to keep telling myself that means I don't know what the next few months hold either.

The one thing that I'm certain of is that if we sit still and enjoy what the previous efforts have brought us, the celebration will be short-lived. We HAVE to keep ourselves just as hungry as we were on day one…and be true to what has brought us to this point.

Although this is posted on the blog, it's mainly a reminder for myself and the z11 staff. Do something that makes you nervous every day. Whatever happens, do not sit still when things are good or bad. Trying new things and making mistakes is much better than not trying new things. 

As a wonderful new client said in a meeting yesterday, "If you haven't f''ed something up, you haven't been trying hard enough."
