“Everything EDGY” — August 2nd

Every week we find edgyness all around us — ordinary people (or companies) achieving outrageous success. We write about it. Speak about it. And travel the globe advising leaders how to leverage the ideas around it to drive results.

Instead of just writing articles with ideas about what ways for you to be a superstar, I thought it might be a good idea to share examples of edgy — Great tools, neat technology, awesome processes, ideas and images that inspire us.

That’s what I’ll be sharing here each Saturday morning — a few edgy ideas worth checking out.


I  try to answer a few questions on Clarity.fm each week to the brave souls looking for help.  Here is one of those:

QUESTION:  Do you know of an online tool for displaying various biz/productivity softwares on one screen like hootsuite does for social media feeds

ANSWER:  There are quite a few dashboards out there that make all your stats super swell:

Geckoboard (http://www.geckoboard.com/) Leftronic — (https://www.leftronic.com/) SumAll — (https://sumall.com/) Ducksboard — (https://ducksboard.com/) Cyfe — (http://www.cyfe.com/) Informly — (http://inform.ly/) HappyMetrix — (http://www.happymetrix.com/)

Pick one. Do something awesome.


  • Million Short — Google is pretty damn awesome —  but you don’t know what you’re missing until you use a search engine, like Million Short, that strips out the “paid” content and delivers cool results in unsuspecting locations.
  • Email Finder — Find the right email address for just about anyone in Corporate America. Insert a company. Insert a name. Out comes an email address — and hopefully the beginning of a long term relationship. Go get ’em…
  • Rebump — Ever send an email to important prospect that didn’t get a response? Of course…. You probably send hundreds of those. And it’s frustrating. Rebump takes over some this process.  It sends follow-ups on your behalf.  What?  Yep. Way cool.
  • Quotes Cover — We all love quotes. This app takes words and turns them into awesomely styled images that you can use for your social media accounts or just something that you can print out and hang on the wall. Why not play around with some EDGY Quotes and share what you make? #EDGYquotes #goodstuff

That’s everything that’s edgy in our universe for today.

See you next week for more.
