    Man, you are astute. Moving is what we need to be doing in every area of life. If we don't move, we dry up and become dust and float away on the slightest breeze.

    I agree Chris, my experience has shown that many businesses are already information movers…it's just that the moving process is very slow. The operational shock that can be experienced when forced to think at the speed of Jeff Pulver's “status of now” is interesting; many efficiencies can be found should there be an internal willingness to change.

    I am “moving” information on selling my moving trucks using a blog, twitter and just through sharing my experiences. Years ago I would have just listed in the paper classifieds. Now I am finding myself helping people that have the same entrepreneurial spirit as me by answering their questions on how we started and maintained our successful moving company and then ultimately why we decided to pursue other dreams. I am feeling pretty good about sharing and educating as well as trying to sell my trucks at the same time. There is a lot to say about this sharing, educating and engaging social media way. It has kept me interested in whole new ways and has even given me new ideas for starting up other businesses.

    A large part of my job has begun to involve specific boston moving ideas for my company and it’s partners. I agree with your ethos, we need to start moving people and have more technology than ever which will allow us to do that now.

    Great video and I agree, moving companies that can adapt and change their location /and/or products to make the most of certain markets are bound to find success. It's just a shame a lot of businesses lack the quick organisation needed to maintain such a high level of adaptability, but I think many have hopefully learned how important it is after the economic crisis.

    Great video, I started my own business last year with the help of a two Small Business Loans to get things moving and I have soon realized you can't metaphorically stay put, constant activity and adaptation is the recipe to ensure success!

    Here are good ideas and tools around, it almost hurts when you move people to take advantage of them and could use them. I also think that to show a positive attitude can do – the difference, so I just love your little video series.

    I thought it was some kind of oblique play, “okay, now that I'm famous, I'll follow the dream I've had since I was a kid, buy a truck, start a moving business”. Disappointed.

    Very well said, we can never hoard an idea. An idea that doesn’t become reality is dead. Like buying a truck for moving boxes is a dead idea until somebody takes the time and effort to make it true.

    I think moving business can turn out pretty well.There are many people who move very often and they use the services of different moving companies.There for a moving company can be a gold mine if you really intend of having one.

    2)Beachfront Condos in California worth $2.7 million.

    Starting a moving company nowadays is not as easy as it used to be. It requires much licensing, hard work, and pleasing clients who assume that because you are a moving company, you are a scam artist.
