I've succumbed to the "7 things you don't know about me" meme, thanks to Liam Delahunty at the Online Sales\u00a0blog. Usually I try to avoid these kinds of articles, but it seemed to me this might be a nice ice-breaker and get people talking. If we all share a little something about ourselves, we'll get to know one another.\u00a0 Right? So I am kicking things off by sharing 7 facts about myself.\u00a0 At the end of this article I will ask you to share something about yourself, in the comments section.\u00a0 And I've also tagged 7 other people to share seven things about themselves. So here goes with the things you might not know about me or haven't guessed: I live\u00a0in a small town in Ohio outside of Cleveland, not far from the world's largest Amish settlement.\u00a0 The grocery store I shop at is a sort of quasi-Amish grocery store. I have always liked to work.\u00a0 Never do I\u00a0have trouble staying motivated.\u00a0 Occasionally, however, I go through creative dry patches and have to try to get my "groove" back. I love my iPod Touch!\u00a0 It's a great personal entertainment device that keeps me sane when traveling. I bought a cord that allows me to listen to it in the car from my stereo speakers. Mostly I am for free market capitalism and against socialism.\u00a0 I dislike Big Government, but I also believe that some regulations and government programs\u00a0(such as social security to keep older folks from living on the streets)\u00a0strike a good balance\u00a0in a civilized society.\u00a0\u00a0Although I\u00a0am quick to\u00a0lend a helping hand to a friend, relative or colleague, the idea that\u00a0anyone\u00a0in our society EXPECTS a\u00a0handout or\u00a0feels entitled,\u00a0rubs me the wrong way. I've never had\u00a0trouble earning a living -- but,\u00a0I've usually had to work hard and have never made money the "easy way" if there is such a thing.\u00a0\u00a0The easiest money I've made in a long time was when someone sent me an unsolicited bid to buy a domain name I owned.\u00a0 I made $500 just by answering a few emails.\u00a0 Not big money, but certainly easy money .... I am an INTJ in Myers Briggs personality assessments.\u00a0\u00a0And if you\u00a0believe in astrology, you may be interested to know I'm\u00a0a Scorpio.\u00a0 I believe the Myers Briggs stuff to be valuable in understanding yourself and others, so that you can adjust your behavior and communication style to get along with others in the workplace and in life.\u00a0 However, I find astrology to be more of an amusement than hard science. I like Himalayan cats because they are gentle and affectionate.\u00a0 I have two of them.\u00a0 They do, however, need to be brushed daily and they shed a lot. Did I surprise you with any of these facts about myself? Now let's hear from you.\u00a0 In the comments section below, share one fact about yourself -- the more obscure the better. That way we can get to know you a little better! And at this point, I'd like to tag\u00a07 members\u00a0of this community to write their own "7 things"\u00a0post: Matt Ringer, Small Biz Bee (Twitter: @SmallBizBee) Kris Bovay, More for Small Business David Damore,\u00a0of Admore\u00a0Solutions\u00a0(Twitter: @Admore) Tim Grahl, of OutThink Group David Turnbull, of Mellow Business Martin Lindeskog, of EGO Blog (Twitter: @lyceum) Curt Ophoven, of Penny Jobs The rules are simple.
