Ash Borer Tree Care and Lawn litters on foreclosed house next door

Carver-based Ash Borer Tree and Lawn littered a flyer on the foreclosed house next door, even though the property is clearly in foreclosure and vacant. I still don’t understand why Chaska Police can’t enforce littering laws on companies like this one, Qwest Dex, Sarpinos, SW Metro Transit, Chaska Fire Department and other businesses who continue to dump their trash on vacant properties.

I added this as an update to the 110 N Pine St. saga.

Have you Googled yourself lately? I mean, really gave yourself a deep Googling?

What are people saying about you? What kinds of pictures will your boss, employees or (gasp!) kids discover with a few short clicks? What does any of this mean to your personal brand?

This Thursday I’m co-presenting “The Brand of You in the Digital Age” with Tim Brunelle at an event hosted by the Minnesota Chapter of the American Marketing Association and Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association (MIMA).

We’re going to talk about the changing face of personal brand, why your online identify matters and tips for monitoring, positioning and saving your digital reputation.
