Oh Look … Bright, Shiny Objects!

Are you a slave to beeps, bops, boops, dings, doubts, dees, does and the all-important vibrate? If so, you may be suffering from what is commonly known as Bright, Shiny Object Syndrome! This is not a new phenomenon; it’s been around since one of the first cavemen saw his neighbor making a fire. Those of us in business, who […]

Finding Your Ideal Client … Myth Or Mastery?

Which One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others? Santa Claus, Leprechauns, the Easter Bunny or the Ideal Customer. Obviously, the first three have holidays associated with them, so why does the ideal customer not have a holiday? Because every day is ideal customer day! My guess is that you celebrate your customers every time […]

Making The Most Of Relationships … Your Conference Is Calling

How would you like to grow your business? Get out of your office and go meet some new people. I am a huge proponent of networking, and conferences equal networking on steroids. Relationships are the currency of business, however you can’t have a relationship with a business … only with people. You can have transactions with a […]

Glossophobia … Don’t Fear The Speaker

Leap of Faith Why is it that some people will jump out of a perfectly good airplane, but can’t stand the thought of giving a presentation in front of a crowd. I personally have acrophobia, the fear of heights; yet, I’ve always wanted to jump out of an airplane. I’ve never, however, had a fear of speaking in front of large […]

Writing The Right Book

When I was young, I dreamed about what I would be when I grew up. I was sure I was going to be an astronaut (even though I am deathly afraid of heights). I was going to be a rock star (I have often been told I have a face for radio). I was going to […]

Real Life with Virtual Assistants… Why You Need One (or More)?

Do You Ever Sleep? I get this question all the time … “When do you sleep? You are everywhere!” I do get around a bit; between speeches, masterminds and networking, I attend upwards of 20 events per month. I am constantly posting on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ about all of these meetings. I also send multiple […]

Check 1, 2, 3 – The Business of Podcasting

Think of all the technology we used to have in our cars, like phonographs, 8-tracks, cassettes and CDs. Soon we will say goodbye to the CD player. Is the radio tuner far behind? With technology like Apple CarPlay turning our car stereo systems into complete mobile computer systems, in the immortal words of  Bob Dylan “The Times They […]

Webinars or Webi-noise? As Easy As 1, 2, 3!!!

This is no joke … I attended a webinar on webinars, where the presenter took 15 minutes to explain that a webinar is a seminar on the web (he obviously worked in the Department of Redundancy Department). I am sure you have attended at least one webinar; I have attended and served up hundreds. Just […]

How To Use Ebooks To Grow Your Business

I have a confession … I was a book snob. As a self-published author of a best selling, award winning book, I thought I was the bee’s knees. I viewed publishing like some kind of a rock-paper-scissors. Authors with a hard cover book by a traditional publisher, trumps a soft cover self-published book, which in turn trumps an electronic […]
