I gurgle through the spit and mouthwash.

In working with organizations over the years, I have observed a specific leadership pattern that itself resist change. Mere top management knows their vision does not necessarily means your entire organization knows the vision. Sometimes in India, especially for Small and Mid Size Companies, their vision statement is decided by the website designer. If you dont know where to go, how you can be make sure how to reach there. Your vision should refect into the planning and your employees must be willing to execute those steps, accepting the challenges while management allows mistakes to happen.
Let me address some of the tips you can follow to bring change within your organization.
Beat communication breakdown
When change is first announced, people will have information concerns. Often, leaders will want to explain why the organization is moving in a certain direction and why the change is a good idea. This is a mistake. People don't want to be told the change is good until they understand it. Instead, leaders should share information as plainly and as completely as possible. In the absence of clear, factual communication, people tend to create their own information about the change, and rumors become facts.
Leaders should prepare to answer questions such as: What is the change? Why is it needed? What's wrong with the way things are now? How much and how fast does the organization need to change?

After Rogue Magazine's Sep 2012 issue? Did Cecile Zamora's expose matter? Has he become less famous? Judging from his instagram.com/bryanboy account, I don't think it affected him a bit, if not made him more popular!
One thing I was just wondering, does he require anything LV to photobomb his photos?? Well not every photo, it's ummm, most of the photos.
Is it true that he is a social climber? Credit card fraud? User? Druggie? Did he sue Rogue? Well, I was wondering how did he retaliate?
And by the way, where's the Gucci Gang now? Are they still alive?
Warren wants me to sit straight. He says don't cross your legs. Instead prefers me to keep my knees locked together firmly, yet subtly, with my hands in my lap, ready to secure my dress from any attempt to rise, like I was some little fantasy of the past.
As he sits across from me, sipping his tea, we listen without emotion to some twee indie band whose name I hadn't bothered to remember. On vinyl, of course. But that wasn't me when he wasn't there. When he's not around I might listen to Poison on the radio, or Bob Seager, or even sometimes when I'm feeling really naughty, Jimmy Buffet. I hate Jimmy Buffet, mind you. But listening to him, singing about cheeseburgers and cliches, just knowing how it would destroy Warren to see me gaining such pleasure from something so low brow, made me gain a true appreciation for the man in the Hawaiian shirts.
When Warren's at home we only watch British dramas, Reruns of Leave It To Beaver (he watches it ironically, of course), or foreign films. Occasionally, when he's had a joint or two, he'll put on some stand-up comedy, but only if it's cynical and edgy enough.
When he's at work though I'll flip on some Dancing With The Stars, or if I'm really angry with him, Three And A Half Men.
For dinner he made us two bowls of Udon, which I had said was exquisite. We ate on the handcrafted floor mats of course--Warren is an ardent believer in minimalism. He didn't know that in the hideaway ottoman was a full bag of nacho cheese Doritos that would be devoured and disposed of by tomorrow morning.

Sweden's Truckfighters, arguably among the cream of today's stoner rock crop, assembled a superb set of songs for the band's 2005 full-length studio debut Gravity X. "Fuzz" is the operative word when describing the Truckfighter's sound in the tradition of Kyuss, Slo Burn, Fu Manchu and, more further down the timeline, Blue Cheer. Truckfighters create their own thick wall of noise, with meaty riffs and deep, earthy tones. But it's not all doom and gloom. There are melodies and more subdued moments, which are parsed together superbly on "Momentum", which is one of the best tracks on Gravity X. The song's quieter moments eventually give way to monster drum rolls and the chugga-chugga phaser/fuzz guitar effects, before it stomps to satisfying close. Thick bass lines dominate the record, perhaps no better than on "In Search Of (The)". And Truckfighter's keep the song arrangements interesting, from the refrains of trumpet on "Subfloor" to the jam band-like instrumentals ("Intermission", "Altered State"). But it's in the straight ahead stoner rock on tracks such as the opener "Desert Cruiser" and "Deal" that listeners discover the Truckfighter's area of expertise.

I'm sorry to put it so bluntly - I'm sure the tech that you've developed is OK, but seriously do something about the User Journey.
Thank you for writing all of that stuff that I didn't read when I came to the site as well, and showing me the various plans that I don't care about - I did watch the video though which was enough of an introduction to get me started.
How about this for a business strategy - STOP DEVELOPMENT. Think about a user journey that makes the site easy to use when you first arrive as a new user, make your UI intuitive so that I can do the things that I care about with minimal effort.
