The tasks of leaders

In the May/June issue of Consulting magazine, David Morrison summarizes the tasks of leaders.

I’ve had a copy of his article pinned to my bulletin board. This is simple enough for even an engineer like me to understand. To me, this distills what business is all about.

RALEIGH, NC – August 8, 2005 – Llamawerx proudly announces the launch of their new website, JetsetJr.com. JetsetJr.com is an online community dedicated to traveling with children. The site will enable people to exchange information about traveling with children.

“If you have ever tried to plan a trip with your kids there’s always some information you’re looking for but can’t find,” said Llamawerx’s Doug Griswold. “When my family traveled to Thailand last year with our 18 month old son we searched all over for what to take and how to do it. That was the first inspiration for JetsetJr. Now, we’ve built an online community where travelers can post your questions and let others help you out.”

Discussion boards, free links and a weblog are part of the package along with an online store. The online store recommends age-appropriate items for kids and their parents to make the trip more enjoyable and educational.

“Today’s children are bombarded with cheap toys having limited value. As a mother and traveler, I’m on the lookout for travel stuff that will be entertaining, educational and small,” said Judy Gerard. “We’ve tried to select items for JetsetJr that meet these requirements and are age-appropriate too.”

Llamawerx Summer Update

Summer’s here and while the US is baking under a heat wave, I thought it would be a good time to update everyone on what we’ve been up to here at Llamawerx.

Have you thought about setting up a website, but continue to put it off? Do you have a site that could use freshening up? We’re running a summer special on web development and hosting. For a limited time, you can get a professionally designed website starting at $595. For details, visit www.llamawerx.com/promo. Hurry, this offer expires September 1, 2005.

Llamatrax the newsletter has been retired – and replaced with The Llamatrax Weblog. For us, blogging is a big improvement over the PDF newsletter. Entries are simpler to create, written in HTML, archived chronologically, allow comments and can be read using a web browser or RSS reader. If you haven’t seen it yet, visit blog.llamawerx.com and read what’s there. Don’t forget to bookmark it and come back!

Llamawerx proudly announces the launch of JetsetJr – an online community dedicated to traveling with children. I know many of you have children and sometimes you’re looking for information to help make a trip go smoothly. On JetsetJr, you’ll find a weblog, message boards and an online shop. The more people that visit – and participate – the more information will grow. Even if you’re not traveling, take a look. You might find some neat gifts for the kid in all of us – www.jetsetjr.com/shop.

Finally, if you’re looking for something to read this summer, visit our bookshelf for some great Amazon selections: www.llamawerx.com/bookshelf.

Enjoy the summer.
