28/11/2013: welcome to thrilling thursday

Thursday draws its name from the old English for thunder, a translation of a Latin name for Jupiter's Day.

On November 28th in 1964, NASA launched the Mariner 4 probe towards Mars. It was a Saturday rather than a Thursday. Personally I am surprised they didn't choose a Tuesday but that's just me being a sentimental old sausage.

The point is that this was the biggest step into the unknown ever taken by man. Nobody knew for definite that the probe would even get to its destination. The thrill of the unknown and the excitement of potential new knowledge were just irresistible to the scientists, so off it went. After nearly eight months of waiting, the reward was the first ever deep space photograph transmission of the surface of another planet. How good must that have felt?

On a smaller scale, the thrill of learning new things is one of the major benefits of being in business. Every day we can pick up something new and exciting. Promotion of a business is one area where you can always find something new, and it is the businesses that keep evolving and trying new angles that will prosper while others stagnate.

Today is a great day for looking somewhere new for customers. What about joining a new networking group? Word of mouth marketing is still the most powerful tool of all for spreading the word. At the Village Websmith, we foster the IN8 Networking groups. These differ greatly from most other business networking organisations in that there is no annual fee, no fixed meeting fee and no silly rules. Nobody puts any pressure on members to pass meaningless pieces of paper, members simply give and receive referrals when they are real and valuable.

Fancy giving it a try? To get information on your nearest group, call us on 0203 239 0350 or click in the header of any page to send an email. If there isn't one in your area, how about starting one? You will get all the help you need to bring people together to do more business. Tread boldly today!
