Jane Herman What holds you back, limits your personal power and gets you stuck? Due to the popularity of self-help books and concepts most of us are aware of how our limiting beliefs and assumptions about ourselves can play a major role in keeping us from moving forward and maximizing our potential.

The Year of TV Everywhere

The future is coming into view. Soon, entertainment won't be bound to the platform it came in on - the content you want to watch will finally be accessible wherever you want to watch it. One of the most important venues is of course the living room. Between gaming consoles, browser-enabled TVs, startup set-top boxes, network DVRs, simple cables - it's a battle to see who can bring the flexibility and variety of online video delivery to the comfort of your couch. There are only about 10 million Americans accessing Internet-delivered content on their TVs today, so who will be the one to bring it mainstream?
