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.

Were You Planning For Content Marketing Success?

Are You Resolute? Do you realize that over 50% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions? Do you know that over 80% of them never succeed? So why do most resolutions fail?

Content First, Marketing Second – What Is Content Marketing?

You’re sitting in traffic or at a stoplight daydreaming about your trip to Mexico, a dream home or maybe that concert you are going to tonight…what happens next? Someone toots their horn, and you feel a mix of embarrassment and anger. People and businesses are constantly doing their best to get your attention, sometimes to wake you up…

Did You Read That Email?

Come On Feel The Noise… How many emails do you get per day, per week, per year? My guess is too many. I get 100 per day and that’s down from 250 per day. I worked really hard to remove myself from email lists that I never subscribed to and others that have become irrelevant as of today! Email is…

Brand of Brothas (and Sistas)

Do you or your business have brand? Of course they do. Can you verbalize it? Now, if I was to ask 100 of your customers what that brand is, what percentage of their answers would match yours? A brand is so much more than just a logo; it’s flavor, service, handshakes, uniforms, colors, smells, flooring…
