Our InterviewFX series continues! In this exclusive series, we offer you insights and tips from marketers, entrepreneurs, authors, and other notable industry experts. Today, we’re extremely excited to bring you an interview with Jon Gordon, one of our absolute favorite authors here at WebFX.
We don’t just read Jon’s books — we live them. His Wall Street Journal Bestseller The Energy Bus has become not only a must-read for our team members, but it’s also inspiration for how we work every day. We even have posters on the wall and flyers on our desks to remind us of Jon’s “10 Rules for the Ride of Your Life.”
The rules of The Energy Bus offer great advice, including getting rid of “Energy Vampires,” or people who suck the energy out of the room with complaining and negativity. Jon recently had a chance to talk with us about his No Complaining Rule, Energy Vampires, and the importance of getting everyone onto The Energy Bus.

Our InterviewFX series continues! Today we’re sitting down with licensed psychologist Marci Fox, Ph.D., co-author of the book “Think Confident, Be Confident.”
Dr Fox’s book is a favorite of many team members of WebFX, and has helped us create the positive work environment that we’re famous for. We also recently featured it on our list of the 5 best productivity and positivity books. The book takes psychological look at how people can eliminate self-doubt to make them more productive workers and better people.

In 1971, Ray Tomlinson sent the world’s first email, a message passed from one computer to another placed directly beside it. Now, just 43 years later, we send approximately 182.9 billion email messages each and every day.
Email is just one example of the kind of explosive growth experienced by the Internet and its features. Since its development in the late 20th century, the Internet has quickly evolved into a necessity for our daily lives; less than 20 years ago, Internet access was considered a luxury, and it certainly wasn’t fast, either.
In our graphical representation of the Internet, we explore a series of famous Internet firsts you may not have known about, including the first spam email, the first item purchased online, and some of the first social media updates. We’ll also show you where these famous firsts are today, and how they’ve grown over the years. Some of the statistics may surprise you!
We continue to roll on with our InterviewFX series, talking to business owners, authors, and more. Today we’re talking to Mark Sanborn, speaker and author of The Fred Factor: How Passion In Your Work and Life Can Turn the Ordinary Into the Extraordinary, which has sold nearly two million copies to date.
We recently included The Fred Factor in our list of “5 Best Workplace Productivity & Positivity Books” and highly recommend it due to its universal ideas that everyone can put into practice. Mark talks about how you don’t have to have a dream job like a rock star or athlete to make a difference. Anyone, from the garbage man to the person delivering mail, can have a positive impact.

A few months ago, we did some original research to determine who controls the Internet, state by state. It didn’t surprise us to see that Comcast is currently one of the largest Internet service providers in the country. It certainly didn’t make us any happier to see how much larger the company would grow after buying out another major market share holder, Time Warner Cable.
Time went by, and Comcast distracted us with other larger issues like threatening net neutrality all together. Regular interactions with Comcast’s phone support have also caused a bit of a stir. Little did we know, Comcast has been silently building political support for the long-forgotten TWC buyout.
