I'm just writing about different career metaphors, and yes, the organic one is highlighted. Maybe I should have called it gardening, instead of organic. That's a better image. More concrete.

Anyway, do you have bindweed? I know actual gardening is not the subject of this post, but I am having a terrible time getting rid of it in my garden.

I am always ready to talk bindweed (what's that a metaphor for, I wonder?), and mine is horrendous. I actually read up on Roundup and that's what I use--I can't find anything else that works, and Roundup is actually environmentally ok if you don't dump it into water.

I pulled and pulled bindweed all summer and it just laughs at me.


love Roundup. Works on just about any garden evil.


Bindweed is in fact a metaphor for French copywriters. No matter how much you cut out, they keep coming back with more and more "flowery" language. (Pardon the pun).
Found this while surfing - it may help with the dreaded weed. If not, train it up a trellis and call it a flower!
Bindweed mites eat bindweed! "A sufficient infestation of mites will stunt growth, reduce seed production and eventually kill the bindweed."

Best of all, unless you are growing some ornamental morning glory, they don't seem to bother eating anything else.

In Colorado you can get mites for free by visiting this website and calling their number (in case the link should stop working their number is 866-324-2963):


Other states may have similar programs if you do a little research.


I took a look at your site and recommend it to my visitors. I agree with you on the importance of becoming valuable in many different areas. I believe that it sustains any entrepreneur during challenges that inevitably occur.
