Want to make the world a more positive place?
Tell about your positive experiences online. Write a review on Yelp or CitySearch. Give a recommendation on LinkedIn. Share about it on Twitter and Facebook. Rate it on Amazon or Google.
Don’t make stuff up. Don’t whitewash the truth. Just be every bit as willing — eager, even — to tell about good experiences as bad.
