Jason T. Wiser17,824Storytelling for Business Building with Chris BroganThere’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 +Chris Brogan  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   ========Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan2014-03-06 19:00:00242

Trever McGhee76,599Please 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 YOUIn 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 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205

Free the nipple will release in two days
The movie that is, the movement is well on its way albeit with little success.

The weird thing is it's a battle about the freedom to show an extremely small part of the human body. And even that sentence is incorrect as only the female version of the smallest part imaginable of the human body is 'forbidden'.

In the majority of the US states you can be arrested and fined for showing off a nipple if you're a women that is Even in free haven New York where both genders are allowed to walk around without a top the actors of 'Free the Nipple' were stopped by police as 'the public could have been confused'.

A tribe in Mexico proves that humans are capable of running up to 700 kilometers (435 miles) in one race (in just over 48 hours) - no, really! (10 min video)

The Tarahumara are runners from Nothern Mexico. The whole tribe just runs. They run for fun, for errands, for sport, for communication...

Their tribe's record is 435 miles (700 kilometers) in just over 48 hours. Imagine running from New York City to Cleveland, Ohio - that's it, and it's probably the human long distance running record.

The Tarahumara are used to running hundreds of kilometers every week. Imagine being able to run one or two ultra-marathons (that's any race longer than the traditional marathon length of 42 km) every single day. They can.

How do the Tarahumara do it? They run barefoot, or in minimalist home-made sandals. Yup, no fancy high-heeled, cushioned running... mehr »

I love the direction in which SEO is going.

If you're selling digital marketing to clients, you have to see this presentation [83 slides]

~ _written by +Visnja Zeljeznjak _~

SEO has been changing for quite some time, and this presentation by +Rand Fishkin clearly illustrates the directions in which Google and other search engines are going. 

The presentation is focused on the change in our tactics. For example, link building is a thing of the past - but not in the way I just said it. Link building is being replaced by relationship building. In the presentation Rand gives a couple of ways to build a relationship with people which are totally like everything we do in the real world.

That's what I like about Moz as a company that has teaching in its DNA: there are no tricks. What works in the real world is being imitated online. 

I like these changes because SEO is getting harder. I like it because this ups the ante for lazy tricksters who have been polluting our SERPs with bad content in the past years.

As always, +Moz' presentations are full of examples and ideas how to use specific tools.

h/t to +Randy Milanovic for finding this on Slideshare.___I love the direction in which SEO is going.

Thought for the day. This rainy morning I ran 3x 10 minutes and this evening I swam for 45 minutes. Stuff that I want to happen, is happening. How was your day?

Change will happen no matter what - but if you do something it will be the change you want.

If your business provides a product or service of the highest level of quality, it will always be too expensive, if you’re marketing it to the wrong people.

In this article (with a great story including Aston Martins) +Jim Connolly advises to decide who your ideal client is and market exclusively to them.

Good questions to ask yourself to create an ideal client persona are these:

Who values my services more than keeping their money (and keeping their problems)?

Who can afford my services?

Where do these people hang out and what is the best way to reach them?

Think about this. You may have been attracting the wrong crowd with your marketing.

Recommend the best wireless headphones, great for running and office work. Requirements:

- I prefer in-the-ear wearing style, but I can be convinced otherwise.
- they need to stay put (don't want them to fall out of my ears when I run)
- comfortable (good for hours and hours of play)
- great sound 
- multidevice support (I need to be able to connect to both my mobile phone and my Mac without too much switching hassle)
- the more battery, the better
- I prefer to also have a microphone 

Thanks!

My latest www.simpfinity.com/newsletter/ exclusive article deals with SALES and how our behavior as buyers affects our sales results. Useful for everybody who wears a sales hat in their digital agency / consultancy. 

★ Mind tricks you can practice on yourself to sell more of your services ★ [NEW ARTICLE VIA EMAIL]

~ Written by +Visnja Zeljeznjak ~

If you're the person wearing a sales hat in your digital agency, it would help you to know which not-so-obvious factors positively or negatively affect your ability to sell more.

In our latest Simpfinity newsletter issue, I reveal one uncommon idea that you won't hear in sales training: how you buy affects how you sell. 

What has buying got to do with selling? A lot. What you think is good for you as a buyer can destroy your ability to improve your own sales skills.

Sign up for our free newsletter (or, if you're already a subscriber, go to your inbox and look for Simpfinity newsletter from Friday Dec 12th) to find out why discounts, bargain hunting, consumer rewards and being late with payments to your partners and vendors hurts you as a sales professional.

So, it has come to this: serious businesses creating their content marketing strategies based on what Upworthy and Buzzfeed do.

What does that remind me of? Oh, right! The year is 1999 and you're submitting your link to major 1000 search engines. Because that's the latest marketing trick, and all the gurus recommend that.

Tricks be tricks. If a real estate company slapped you with an Upworthy-like article, would you give them your business?

Feast or famine: consultants' worst nightmare. Here are some tips on how to avoid it. I completely agree with +Jarrod Drysdale's conclusion at the end: you can't stop moving, you need to keep bringing in leads.

Tips on avoiding the consulting famine, from experienced consultants

+Jarrod Drysdale asked developers, consultants and web professionals on his mailing list how they manage to avoid the infamous feast or famine cycles.

In this article, he posts the quotes, responses, and links to advice he got, including:

- Schedule time to work on your own business
- Set Goals
- Build a long-term relationship to earn repeat work instead of a single project
- market yourself

There is much valuable advice in the article, told by people who experience the same business problems every day (or who have learned to avoid them).

I just love everything Avinash said here: How low are you willing to stoop to squeeze that last conversion out of the Interwebz?

BTW, I'm preparing to launch something on this topic, very soon.

How desperate is too desperate? What is the right amount of in your face? 

I got a note from a company. I went to their site. The home page did not explain clearly what they did, so, five seconds later, exactly equal to the amount of patience anyone on the internet has, I clicked on the helpful How It Works link on the top nav.

Five seconds after landing on the page I got these two popups. 

I barely got a chance to read what the company does. These pop-ups are now covering all the content I'm there to read, content the company desperately wants me to read. 

There is a gorgeous top of the page, valueless to me because I'm trying to learn what they do. 

The thought immediately crosses my mind: "This is so stupid. All you are doing is pissing off someone actually interested in your product."

Then I realize that I'm sure someone tested this. I'm sure some "conversion rate optimization guru" was brought in to do this. I'm sure they got 10% more leads. I'm sure their lead conversion rate went from 1.67% to 1.84%. I'm sure to them this looks awesome.

But what about the other 98.16%? People who did not convert, many of whom, like me, might have thought this was distasteful? Some of the 98.16% surely thought "This is not the type of company I want to do business with?"

Is your company structured to consider those questions? Do you have a process to think beyond landing page last iota optimization of the bottom of the funnel local maxima optimization? Do you have people who can apply common sense and good taste?

It is not easy to do. But it is important.

And in case you were curious... No, the right answer is not: "It won't piss people off because all they have to do is find their mouse, move it to to x boxes and then go read our incredible content."

(I've done my best to hide the name of this company. They are not the only people in the world doing this, they are hardly the worst example. If you know the name of the company, please don't mention it in comment. Thanks!)

#optimizebeyondconversionrate   #worryaboutyourbrandexperience  ___I just love everything Avinash said here: How low are you willing to stoop to squeeze that last conversion out of the Interwebz?

BTW, I'm preparing to launch something on this topic, very soon.

You'll spend at least 15% of your gross revenue on a new sale, and that's normal (at least in service and B2B businesses, in my experience). That's tough to accept, and hard to finance if your budget is on a shoestring.

But there is a way to finance this: recurring revenue.

As +Mike Bayes explains wonderfully, if you need to come up with 15% of the gross revenue of each new sale upfront, you better have that kind of money in the bank! You might end up waiting for months, even years to get any return on that investment.

BUT if you set your mindset to convert new customers to a service they pay to you monthly (retainers, recurring revenue contracts...), you might get back some of that investment sooner, and be able to finance your lead generation plans.

Having a "recurring revenue first" business model can be a serious push for your business. If you're lucky to be in a type of business where clients need support, maintenance, and consulting to grow their businesses, you have serious advantage over other businesses. 

And if you adopt an attitude and a mindset that recurring revenue is the default way to go, you gain advantage over your competitors who are afraid to ask to be paid monthly.

(I write about recurring revenue, particularly for digital agencies and creative service business owners, in my book "Recurring Revenue For Web Agencies": http://goo.gl/u35G1A - free chapter available for download / reading online, no registration required to read).

I'm so glad I read this article, it brings much needed reality into budgeting for marketing and sales. I will use this to talk to my B2B clients about the cost of lead generation.

The U.S. death rate associated with overeating is 35 million. Tobacco? Just 3.5 million.

I gave up smoking two times in my life: the first time in 1998 for ten years, and the second time in 2009 - for good.

Turns out, I should have stopped sitting so much. We sit 9.3 hours per day, and it's killing us. Our bodies were not meant to sit, we're more likely built to be on the move all the time (this is how we survived in the far past: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persistence_hunting)

So, heeding good advice, I am sitting less, moving more (I'm a newbie runner now). It's not a first time in my life that I'm mindful about moving and exercising, BUT this time, I need to think about persistent sitting like I thought about smoking in 2009, when I quit it for good.

Sitting is Killing You
When I worked in the coal mine, there was no time for sitting.  Always running around (crawling around rather) doing certain things...now, in order to get my work done, I'm bound to a chair 12 hrs a day.

This was something I read last night and I even went a little deeper to find that people that sit for a living and then try to keep a healthy lifestyle like exercising, do not benefit as much from it as the people that have an active job.

If your company / agency does digital advertising, you're in the right industry. Every year, the violet slice of this pie is growing.

Quote from the article: The internet's projected share of worldwide ad spending: 23.8% in 2014; 26.5% in 2015; 28.9% in 2016; and 31.1% in 2017.

What also grows is the complexity of the digital (ad) space. Being on top of it all, and knowing what you're doing, is becoming increasingly valuable.

Having said that, you need to read this article: http://www.evangelistmktg.com/thriving/ (thanks +Laurie Varga for sharing it!). It will remind you of an important idea, quote:

Only the people who grok that they deserve more revenue will get richer.

Only the companies who increase their consulting fees will get richer. 

Only the consultants who learn how to consistenly ask for more and get more will get richer.

The rest will linger in bitterness, blaming the economy, the government, their clients, their partners, their bosses, their vendors.

This is our time. It's us who know how to turn this huge pile of advertising money into products / services sold and leads generated. We're the masters of funnels, the holders of analytics keys, the rainmakers.

Go and and eat some of that sweet, violet pie. You deserve it.

Women, your attention is required: "Free The Nipple" movie speaks against female oppression

Obscenity: how do you define it?

In the US, it's not obscene to show a murder, but it is obscene to show a woman's nipple. 

That's F-ed Up (tm) if you ask me. If you don't see an image below/above, it's because Google needs to abide by F-ed Up (tm) US laws, and the perfectly fine image of a female nipple (just that! not even the whole breast!) has been removed by Google algos by the time you see this.

Anyway, the movie will be available on iTunes / VOD / theaters starting December 12th. If the gods of international copyright laws permit it, I will support the movie by trying to buy it on iTunes (didn't work the last time I tried to buy a documentary, the gods would not accept the dollars coming from my country).

P.S. the campaign website... mehr »

Free the nipple will release in two days
The movie that is, the movement is well on its way albeit with little success.

The weird thing is it's a battle about the freedom to show an extremely small part of the human body. And even that sentence is incorrect as only the female version of the smallest part imaginable of the human body is 'forbidden'.

In the majority of the US states you can be arrested and fined for showing off a nipple if you're a women that is Even in free haven New York where both genders are allowed to walk around without a top the actors of 'Free the Nipple' were stopped by police as 'the public could have been confused'. 

Prudency laws are arbitrary wherever you are, but they are always sexist. Can't show your hair in Saudi-Arabia, can't show your face in Afghanistan, can't show your tits in the US. All true, but only for women, never for men.

Heck, nowadays you can't even breastfeed in public in most of the Western world. As good as 100% of men grew up on breast milk, but almost universally they don't want to see these same nipples again. Or I should precise here: not for free. 

Nipples went commercial. They made it big time after feeding the boys. Billions are made by showing these forbidden extremities, but we call them porn. Not the breasts: they are fine for reasons unknown but these little tipping points trigger censors all over the world. 

Why do we live in a society that's afraid of getting aroused by the same breasts that fed them once? Is it the incentious thought of being attracted to 'mamas'?

High chance that this post will disappear as Google, like other social media is governed by the worst of American censors. I made a copy of the text and will repost with a 10x10 pixel blur.....

Go back thirty years and imagine a European forum and my text would have been irrelevant and the photo one of so many...

We - the west that is - collectively followed the Taliban. The world went backwards as a whole.

the movie  #freethenipple  http://www.freethenipple.com/ is expected to debut on the 14th.

Abandon all hope in sales and you will sell more.

A soldier was telling an officer that after the drop into Normandy, he simply hid in a ditch.  The officer asked if he knew why and he replied, "Because I was scared!"  The officer said, "You were scared because you thought there was hope.  The sooner you can accept that you're already dead, the sooner you can function as a soldier."

Love this advice by Dave Kurlan, quote: "In sales, if we believe we have already lost, then what's the worst that can happen?  If we are already living the worst that can happen -  we lost - then we won't be afraid, we won't be tentative, and we will do not some, but all of the things we were trained to do.  We'll sell!"

- build an insanely great product

And other interesting bits and pieces from Elon's professional career.

Imagine a world based on giving, rather than on taking. Scarcity is a product manufactured by man's decision to base his civilization on taking rather than on giving. (source: mind-sets.com)

Scarcity is manufactured. Scarcity is artificial. Can you believe this?

Nature is abundant. Human-made creations are scarce. It is a choice we made, and continue to make every day.

And can you believe that the only, only way to reverse that reality is to stop being part of it, to ignore it, and live in your own reality distortion field, where giving is the default?

It all starts with one single human. Enter my reality distortion field.

Maybe you would be less cynical for just one day.
Maybe you would start noticing the abundance of beauty in this world.

Today is December the 1st 2014. It's a month where we're accustomed to giving to others. How about for a change, we give more of everything to those who really need it?

Your mom probably does not need another Christmas present. She doesn't need stuff. Think about what she needs more.

Your partner does not need you to go to the mall and buy her/him a present. There could be something else he/she needs from you more.

Stuff, stuff, stuff. We don't need more stuff. Why not give the most precious asset a human has: time? Convert that time into energy that is useful to others?

Create something:
A moment of togetherness.
A bundle of knowledge.
A kind conversation.
A product that solves human problems.
A service that makes people smile and thrive.

What does your world of giving look like?___

I just taught my body how to run for 15 minutes for the first time in my life. That's 50% of the grand running milestone for absolute beginners, and that's 5K (or 5000 meters or 30 min of running).

Why this is important? Well, 5K is not much, but consider that only two months ago, I hated running with the gravity of thousand supermassive blackholes.

Or at least I believed so. One day, as I was exercising in my apartment, a scary idea popped into my mind:

"You should also try running."

Soon after that I bought running gear and went for my first run. Two weeks after, I had to return to Youtube for some running lessons because my knees started to hurt. I was afraid I was going to injure myself.

I taught myself how to run pain-free, at least at this stage. I am beyond grateful for not being in any considerable pain, and for not injuring myself. Despite having bad knees! I have an X-ray to prove that.

2014 was a year of many firsts for me 

I started and accomplished a number of firsts this year:

- I published my first book. And this book earns me money!
- I taught myself how to touch-type. 
- I started exercising regularly.
- I started running.
- I became an early riser.

It's amazing how one can grow purposefully, in just one year.

All those five things were downright scary to me. I can't say which one was more scary: the idea that I will never stop running, or never stop getting up early, or never stop publishing books. But what scares me the most is exactly the thing I should be doing, because it excites as much as it scares me.

So, I felt the need to share this with you. Thank you for listening.

Different paths of specialization for creative services companies: which one did you take / are planning to take?

I asked this question on the "Web Professionals Discuss Business" community, join the discussion.

What works better for your company: specializing for a tool such as Facebook advertising, or specializing for a client niche/industry, such as "all of digital marketing for dentists"?

I have my own opinion on what of those two tactics are more sustainable for the future of the company, but I'd love to hear what you think, and how you work.

This question does not have to apply to marketing consultancies only, if your company offers development or design, I'd love to know which path of specialization you took, and why, and how this is working out for you so far. 

Thanks!___Different paths of specialization for creative services companies: which one did you take / are planning to take?

These two happy people developed Talking Tom, a famous mobile game. They're smiling because they're the richest people in Slovenia. 

For the first time after a decade or so, the first slot on the list of the richest Slovenians is not occupied by Sandi Cesko, a TV sales guy.

New winds are blowing, and not only in Silicon Valley. I kinda like that. Abundance of opportunities for the brave.

Richest Slovenian isn't some oil magnate nor owner of some big pharmaceutical or retail company. These are couple Iza and Samo Login,  founders of the company Outfit7 - creators of Talking Tom!

"The Logins are the main founders of the company Outfit7, specializing in the development of mobile applications, the value of which the magazine Manager estimated at 1.1 billion euros, while their personal assets are worth 617 million euros."

We are living in the times where you can without huge capital make a pretty decent money. Of course this is extreme and successful (unique and simple idea, cheap product targeted to the masses - everybody in the World with smartphone) example,  I am not saying there is room for "everybody" to achieve such success. But the (cheap) tools and global online market is here waiting for you, same like it was for this couple.___These two happy people developed Talking Tom, a famous mobile game. They're smiling because they're the richest people in Slovenia. 

For the first time after a decade or so, the first slot on the list of the richest Slovenians is not occupied by Sandi Cesko, a TV sales guy. He had been building an empire for quite a long time and then a company, Outfit7, came out of nowhere five years ago (probably from a garage or something) and took over his place.

New winds are blowing, and not only in Silicon Valley. I kinda like that. Abundance of opportunities for the brave.

In this article, Thomas explains why social updates such as this are bullshit:

"I love Sundays because [_______]"_

Remember late nineties and early 2000s, when black SEO hatters at that time and "experts", who were only after quick gains, were telling their clients how to game Google?

Where are their clients now? Where are they now? Google is actively combatting spam by regularly unleashing animals (Penguin and Panda) onto the cheaters. Whole enterprises got slashed in the process.

This is where Facebook is now. Facebook is trying to undo some of the (self-inflicted and systemic) damage by debugging their newsfeed algorithm with anti-spam and anti-low-quality fixes. I am rooting for Facebook to succeed in that because if they do, other networks will follow (including Twitter and Google+ who are trying but not always making all the right moves).

In the early 2000s, agencies and consultancies who taught their clients not to game the system and to focus on creating quality content are probably in business even today. I don't see cheaters, who kept focusing on tricks, renew their retainers with their clients much for long. In time, even the most clueless client can see through bullshit.

If you're a digital agency, be aware that today's social media is just like search engines ten years ago. Sure, we were all completely clueless about social when it arrived as much as our clients were, but we have to know better now. We have to focus on lasting values and focus not on where the puck is now, but where it's going. How we teach our clients now will have an effect on our bottom lines soon in the future.

How soon? Much faster than it took Google to debug their search algos. We're living in a world that moves at much faster pace. In just 12 months Facebook might change their EdgeRank so drastically that none of the tricks in our bags will work. The only thing that will work on social networks, according to this article, will be the cummulative power of the brand on social media.

Just like SEO today is no longer a standalone discipline (it's not something you do, it's a result of consistently doing all the little things right), social ROI will be the result of everything your brand does right, everywhere - and not just on social channels.

So we gotta rethink how we as agencies deliver "the service of social", right now we need to stop focusing only on social  and make it a part of a grand scheme. We owe it to ourselves first, and to our clients.

Designers, do you offer unlimited design revisions to your clients? Read my newest blog article. You might reconsider it. [no registration required to read]

We used to offer this when we had low self-confidence in our pricing model (not our design services). I was young and I thought that I needed to add extra benefits, like unlimited design revisions, to my agency's services so that we would land more deals.

In this article I share everything we learned about design revisions. I show you what to put in your design contract too.

What does your design contract say about the number of revisions?

Offering an unlimited design revisions guarantee to clients is harmful when you're working on fixed-price projects [NEW BLOG ARTICLE] in which we argue that it's not only unfair to take all the risk for design work, but it's also not a sound business decision on agency’s part.

A good question was asked on Designer News the other day, which we answered with an elaborate article on our blog. 

Contents of the article:

- Why the unlimited revisions guarantee is bad for fixed-price projects

- Which clauses to include in your design contract

- How to make your limited revisions work for you, instead of against you

- One more reason why clients sometimes say they don’t like your designs

- How to decrease the chance of clients not liking your designs and asking for money back

Again, we write from our own experience.

If you're paying for FB ads, I wonder what is your average price per lead (i.e. mailing list subscriber, or anything that you offer for free).

Can we web professionals just stop saying "I can do it cheaper" to clients? It's harmful and makes us look like amateurs. I present why, and suggest a more productive attitude in my new www.simpfinity.com/newsletter/ article I sent out on Sunday.

We've all been there: a client shows us how much a competing company is quoting or charging them for a service, and we go beserk. We can't imagine ever charging for that service that much, and our first instinct is to belittle our peers in front of a client.

Well you know what my first instinct is when I see a bag of peanuts? To hurt myself by eating it whole. That does not mean I will do it, although I want to. There are healthier behaviors.

We just published a new article exclusively to email! It's about one thing that I can't stand fellow web professionals say to their clients, and I hear that all the time:

"The other agency is charging you how much? They're nuts. I can do it cheaper."

Can we all please just stop doing that? It's harmful to us personally, to clients, and to our industry as a whole. I this article, I explain why, and I suggest a change in attitude that is focused on learning from others and not belittling them in front of clients.

By shifting responsibility to external entities, you rob yourself of the power to fix things.

Everybody is in the same situation. No, they’re not. Expand your horizons. Find people who have what you want to have. Study what they did to get where you want to be. What could be the first easy step to getting there? Make it.

It’s not me, it’s “them”. How does that belief help you fix your problem? Do you plan to sit around and wait for “their” mercy, or are you going to (wo)man up and start owning your life?

I can fix this. Now we’re talking! What little thing can you do today? What is your superpower? Use it to fix things. I’m certain you have at least one. What is your Kryptonite? Avoid it or don't practice it - not even Superman found a better solution for his weakness. If you’re not sure what your one greatest superpower and your one greatest weakness is, ask a trusted friend who you’re sure won’t bullshit you.

In fact, barefoot running could be the key component to injury-free running in the 21st century. The tribe lives today like they lived hundreds, thousands of years ago - when humans had to out-run animals to survive.

How's that for running inspiration?

I've only stumbled upon the Tarahumara today and I'm new to the world of running, but it makes you question what you think you know.___

"The trick, of course, is to become an expert. THEN become known as an expert."

I just recently wrote about promoting your expertise for the +Simpfinity I am writing, and +Giovanni Totaro posted a lovely share of my post here: https://plus.google.com/113250814961864918365/posts/3R4u95cvvpB

Similar to the famous saying about the tree that falls in a forest without anyone hearing it fall, I want to ask you this:

Are you an expert if nobody knows about your expertise? If you are, to whom? Is it enough to be an expert only to yourself?

The business side of becoming an expert.

Visible expert, thought leader, specialist etc etc, who cares what you call it, there is a tangible, and dramatic business upside to being someone that others recognize as an expert. So, the trick of course is to become an expert.

THEN become known as an expert.

Once this happens, the business upside manifests itself in a number of areas including but not limited to:

- More speaking engagements which are a primary source of leads for experts.

- More job opportunities if you decide you don't want to go solo. There is strong evidence to suggest that firms grow when they are aligned with well known experts.

- Billing rates skyrocket through the roof. Let's face it, you can charge more if you are a famous expert.

- You attract either to yourself or to your firm a much higher quality of client, usually coinciding with a much higher rate of profit.

- Massive upside on the differentiation front in that people who have problems look to experts to solve them. The more famous you are, based on your expertise, the more likely that YOU will attract those in need.

- Buyers choose service providers based on their level of expertise. Expertise is easily demonstrated using a web presence loaded up with all types of content. The winner is the one who delivers the most value.

- Everyone gains by being aligned with an expert. Referrals and recommendations combined with those who give you the thumbs up, make attracting and winning clients a cake walk.

These are just a few ideas I had while checking out a few sources re the merit of becoming a well known expert.

We cannot forget the business upside of this endeavor in that we all become more profitable as not only our expertise becomes real, but we become front and center to those who need us the most.

"Working late wasn’t a sign of commitment—it was a sign of failure." I guess I will pick that book up. 

Also from the article: "When we don’t have any energy reserves left, we’re prone to start making different kinds of decisions. This phenomenon has been labeled “ego depletion.” The idea is that making any choice involves an energy cost. It’s an odd sort of exhaustion—you don’t feel physically tired, but your capacity to make decisions diminishes."

Busy Doesn't Equal Productive
Working Less, Working Smarter Does
#productivity   #outcomes  
Via +Wolf Weber 

Our systems, from schools, through university, through to our business organizations too often reward the ability to those who can do brute hours. And that too often passes for productivity. 

I’m sure that if you asked these judges if they were certain they were making equally good decisions each time, they’d be affronted. But numbers—and sandwiches—don’t lie. When we don’t have any energy reserves left, we’re prone to start making different kinds of decisions. This phenomenon has been labeled “ego depletion.” The idea is that making any choice involves an energy cost. It’s an odd sort of exhaustion—you don’t feel physically tired, but your capacity to make decisions diminishes.
