Jason T. Wiser22,464*Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan* There’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake?  This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/ It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear? That’s why I have invited @118320665823821681206  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business. *Chris is the Author of* "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link) Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are: ⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing? ⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today? ⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story? If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Did you click "Yes" on the event invite? Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and *look for the big RED button.* Upcoming Guests: ⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients" ⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners" Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT  Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT  Join us on Twitter using the hashtag   #OnTrackTips   ========================================­============== If you like this series, Please Share this with 2 friends.

Trever McGhee96,745Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

This is how you announce a major scientific breakthrough: (8 min video, very worth a look). You start the press conference by "We have detected gravitational waves, we did it!" followed by explanations so clear and interesting that your eyes tear up in awe. This man's name is David Reitze and he's the executive director of LIGO. Hopefully they put him in front of cameras more often.

This totally happened the other day in my city Rijeka. Explanation: "In a time when social values in Croatia are low, let us remember a humble man, a man who dedicated his life to care for others. He died as he lived; silently and peacefully but with attitude and belief in righteousness.”

Lots of Game of Thrones is being filmed in Croatia, for example, the King's Landing are cities Dubrovnik and Klis. Croatia has a special relationship with GoT, and luckily it helps the travel business as well :)

My old / new blog in new clothes and on a new engine: http://www.luckyisgood.com/ - moved from ghost.org to the gohugo.io static website generator. I decided to expand the range of topics I write about (I'm more than just business; I write about writing, business, sales, marketing, health, and personal growth). I can't thank +Sasha Matijasic and +domagoj galin enough for helping me with the technical aspects of this move. I guess our last week's hackathon was a success, I relaunched my blog in only a week :)

Organizing an educational workshop: give me your best tips and ideas

I'm organizing a free workshop in two weeks. The topic is: teach people how to write quality persuasive content for B2B websites. Duration: 2-3 hours, for cca 25 people.

My goal is to teach people useful skills they can apply immediately, and give them useful frameworks for thinking about content production.

In return, I get to subtly promote my content writing products and services. I want to generate leads for my products and services.

I wonder what are your best tips and ideas regarding organizing an event such as that one, with regards to maximizing lead generation?

It's not like I've never held a seminar, it's just that I want to do better than the last time. Thank you!

The downside of being a strong, independent person is that you rarely ask for help, and help is widely available. Most people are good and want to be of use to others.

And get to the back of the train?
When a Polish train driver noticed a truck blocking part of the track ahead of his vehicle, he didn’t have time to bring the carriages to a stop before impact. So he used the three seconds he had to sprint through the train, warning passengers of the impact.___What a hero looks like. See the 30-sec video in the article, not just this animated GIF.

"There is no real evidence to link our common food cravings with nutritional deficiencies. Also, food cravings have been shown to decrease during weight-loss diets rather than increase, as might be expected."

My personal experience confirms this. I stopped having cravings as soon as I started counting calories (with the help of the +enquos app that I recommend 200%). Counting calories helped me lose lots and lots of weight since 2014 (27 kilos / 59 pounds as of today). Losing weight slowly helped me change my lifestyle (for the better and hopefully for good).

Eating well and exercising regularly (swimming 3-5 times week) is what is probably the reason why I almost have no cravings anymore. And when I do, I pig out guilt-free, because I know nothing will happen.

This is why Twitter is failing: "While Twitter has retained its big brand advertisers, it has failed to develop an enormous self-serve ad platform in the manner of Google and Facebook." Twitter has 310 million users, and small businesses want to reach those customers - but Twitter won't let us. Google and Facebook are truly international companies, they do not discriminate based on geography and wallet depth. That's why they're winning and Twitter is failing.

Twitter has 310 million users, and small businesses want to reach those customers - but Twitter won't let us. Google and Facebook are truly international companies, they do not discriminate based on geography and wallet depth. That's why they're winning and Twitter is failing.___

Why Okinawans live 100+ years: a scientific study

Basically, up to 30% genetics (luck) and the rest is healthy lifestyle. But what exactly? In short:

- caloric restriction (they eat less than their body needs): "one of the most important findings in free-radical research has been that eating fewer calories increases life span. Okinawans following the traditional ways have low blood levels of free radicals."

- they have impressively young, clean arteries, low cholesterol, and low homocysteine levels when compared to Westerners. "Diet, regular exercise, moderate alcohol use, avoidance of smoking, blood pressure control, and a stress-minimizing psychospiritual outlook"

- Okinawans are at extremely low risk for hormone-dependent cancers including cancers of the breast, prostate, ovaries, and colon. high vegetables/fruits... mehr »

- Okinawans are at extremely low risk for hormone-dependent cancers including cancers of the breast, prostate, ovaries, and colon. high vegetables/fruits consumption, higher intake of good fats (omega-3, mono-unsaturated fat), high fiber diet, high flavonoid intake, low body fat level, and high level of physical activity

- fewer ostheoporosis cases: "high calcium intake by Okinawans in both food and their natural drinking water, high vitamin D levels from exposure to sunlight, increased physical activity, especially at older ages, and high intake of dietary flavonoids (estrogenic compounds from plant foods)."

- "Okinawan centenarians have been lean throughout their extraordinarily long lives, with an average body mass index (BMI) that ranged from 18 to 22 (lean is less than 23)."

- women have fewer complications from the menopause: "Okinawan women also have a very high intake of natural estrogens through their diet, mainly from the large quantities of soy they consume. All plants, especially legumes (beans, peas), onions, and broccoli, contain these natural estrogens."

So, there's our blueprint for living a hundred years.___

Educate yourself about the flu - I bring you awesome links to do so. It's still inconclusive whether or not Prince died of flu, but now is a good time to educate ourselves and revisit our old misconceptions and delusions about this deadly disease: "So, yes, young healthy people can die from flu and it’s not uncommon for the currently circulating flu strain to disproportionately affect young and middle-aged adults. The best approach, always, is to not get the flu or at least reduce its severity by getting your annual influenza vaccination."

Bananas are in trouble! Some bloody fungus wants to eat all our bananas. I seriously did not know this, but in the '50s the world lost one most popular variety of banana, called Gros Michel, to the Panama disease. This variety is now virtually extinct, and the world switched to the Cavendish variety, which has been resistant to the fungi until the '90s. Since then, a new fungus has destroyed many plantations around the world, and scientists still don't know how to fight it. Most bananas are clones, and this genetic uniformity is not helping. Hopefully genetic engineering can save everyone's favorite fruit.

Book review: "Doctors: The History of Scientific Medicine Revealed Through Biography"

From my review: "What a captivating read! What the "Cosmos" series does for astronomy, this book does for scientific medicine. The book tells the story of the advancement of medical science, starting with Hippocrates in 4th century B.C. and ending with open heart surgery in the 20th century. It highlights 12 people, 12 doctors whose work advanced medicine more than anyone has ever done."

I've listened to this book while recovering from a major surgery these days. I decided to learn more about the history of medicine to increase my own awareness of how much medicine has actually improved. Given that anesthesia did not exist before 1846, and that post-surgery mortality rate in European hospitals was 41% (due to sepsis), all I can say is that... mehr »

Isn't it mind boggling that it's possible to survive having your stomach cut open, having something cut out, they patch you up, and there's 4999 in 5000 chance that you get to live a normal, healthy life?

In the 19th century, you went to a hospital to die. 170 years later, you go there so that you could live. Progress may seem to be slow to some, but even the worst health systems today are a miracle.

New, promising improvements in chemotherapy for cancer patients: DNA trojan horse capsule

Scientists are working on making our cancer-fighting techniques more effective, more precise, less damaging:

"...the cells drew the capsules into the organelles that would normally digest them, if they were food. When the capsules broke down, the drugs flooded the cells and caused them to disintegrate. Most cells died within the first 15 hours after consuming the capsules."

I'd watch this. Good scifi is hard to find these days.

Created with nearly $40,000 in Kickstarter funding, “Rise” is a short film aspiring to feature length. Its central theme is to Terminator what District 9 was to Independence Day. According to “Rise,” the future of sentient robots is just as dark and violent as ever, but in this case, it’s our mistreatment of our own creations that’s stoking the flames.___I'd watch this.

Huge news: GiveDirectly is starting a basic income experiment worth $30M, and everyone can participate

GiveDirectly, an evidence-driven charity known for direct cash transfers to the poorest people in Kenya, is starting a basic income trial. So far, a dozen or so experiments were run in the past, or are being in the works in countries such as Finland and Netherlands, but none of those experiments were:

1) universal
2) basic
3) long-term
4) scientifically tested

GiveDirectly is an organization I've supported in the past, and I'm excited to see this happening. Given that the robots are coming to take our jobs, we need to know for sure whether or not basic income is a good long-term counter-measure. If it is, the world, country by country, will begin adopting different universal basic income. If it's not, at least we'll know not to waste... mehr »

This is how you announce a major scientific breakthrough: (8 min video, very worth a look). You start the press conference by "We have detected gravitational waves, we did it!" followed by explanations so clear and interesting that your eyes tear up in awe. This man's name is David Reitze and he's the executive director of LIGO. Hopefully they put him in front of cameras more often.

What I loathe about some publishers: when they know a piece they publish is fake, but still decide to leave in online - to get advertising views.

Before you criticize Jack Ma, the CEO of Alibaba, for saying what the headline claims he said: know that this whole piece is garbage and fake. Jack Ma never said this.

If David Ogilvy's famous saying is still true today, 80% of people never read past the headline, so 80% of people might believe Jack Ma was an asshole.

This piece not only tarnishes a good reputation of an honorable and otherwise humble man, but it says a lot about that online publisher VulcanPost.

And what does VulcanPost do? They edit their original bullshit post with a disclaimer at the bottom of the post: "Disclaimer: Mothership.sg has very kindly brought to our attention that the original post of this article may not be as reliable as we thought. Upon further deliberation, we have decided not to remove the article because there is still lessons that can be learn from the article itself, as pointed out to us by some of our readers."

Takeaway: raise your awareness about the headlines you never click and refuse to make decisions based on what you do NOT read. Many headlines are misleading, some (like this one) are fake for advertising views, and some are downright malicious, exploiting the lack of time to read the whole article.

This is why I use an ad blocker. VulcanPost did not earn a damn penny for deceiving me.

P.S. if you're wondering about who Jack Ma is, this 4 min video is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCr9-7It7fY - he's a billionaire entrepreneur and a great inspiration.___

The most important car of the 21st century will be unveiled in two months. You won't be able to drive it at least until 2018, but I can't stress enough how important it is that this model catches on. It will be the first low(er)-cost, 100% electrical car in the world, aimed at the middle class. I believe that the adoption of this model can speed up the demise of the fossil fuel industry, and I believe that, based on the events that will follow the launch of this car, the world can transition to fully clean personal transportation much sooner than 2050.

"Speaking to Reuters, Tesla spokeswoman Khobi Brooklyn confirmed that the “Model 3 is on schedule” and will be unveiled in March of this year. Brooklyn further added that the company fully expects to start selling the car to consumers in 2017."
