WordPress just rolled out “reblogging” again and this couldn’t be a better inner to do that with. It caught my attention about writing but the principles easily apply to any industry. From marketing, business, technology, to the medical field those that speak are usually considered to be the “experts” wrong or right.

There is a skill set that, when mastered, will not only help you reap significantly better results in book sales over the long haul, but will vastly increase your self concept and confidence and is something that fewer than .05% of the population can do.

Not only can they not do it, but the majority of them would rather die than try.

Wow.

It’s easy to see that you would have a serious leg up on everybody if you could join that .05% group.

I am talking of course about public speaking.

As a writer, it is possible that the percentages of comfortable, accomplished speakers in your group are even smaller than .05%. Writers tend to be shy types, happy to hole up in remote cabins and drafty guestrooms, turning down social invitations in favor of a laptop and a bottomless cup of coffee. Which makes the benefits that much…

Post Recession… Dating Just Isn’t What It Used To Be!

This has been sitting in my phone for awhile because I wanted to do something more in depth.  But health has kept me from it and I think this is just to funny of a moment not to share.

Freedom

Is extremely grateful we live in a land of freedom. Where people –who believed in integrity, honesty, hard work, and KNEW that there was a power greater than any here on earth– fought against oppressors, for the right to worship that Greater Power, according to their beliefs and disposition. Who set up a Constitution, and Bill of Rights, to provide the framework so those who believed and lived these same principles could improve upon them and this nation would be a haven for the weary, and oppressed. Where this freedom allowed for beliefs and knowledge, different from those present at the time they fought for freedom to be restored, and taught freely. So I could know now that families are Eternal. That all though I am sad, and feel downtrodden, and broken, that I can cling with the little faith I have in my heart that one day all will be made right, and me and my beautiful wife will be able to raise our child we were unable to in this life at a future day, when Christ reigns upon the earth and peace which no man (or woman) has known since we lived with our Father in Heaven is found upon the earth. When that happens, millions of people will lift up their voices and rejoice that there was a nation of freedom, and men of honor and values who fought for this nation to be established. Happy Independence Day!!!

Our Deepest Fear is that we are Powerful Beyond Measure

This is a quote that Autumn and I found in a “Dream Home” we toured in Utah about 8 months ago. It is something that we just found again and I am planning on framing it in our house somewhere and will be a Mantra that I will start each day with.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are Powerful beyond measure! It is in our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask Ourselves, who am I to be Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, Fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD!

Hopefully as we move into the new year we will look into our light that lies within each of us and grab hold to it. That we will see our potential and move towards it this year.

Happy New Year!

Where I learned what I know.

One of my colleagues (Jennifer Killian) mentioned to me that I should put links on my site to other interactive news sites and resources. What she didn’t realize is from the first day I stepped into the online marketing industry I have been going to these resources almost daily. They are where I first learned the nuances of search marketing. Where I sponged off of the opinions and insites of people who had been in the industry longer than me. These places even helped me develop a sales strategy and gave me ideas and reasons to call on specific companies or agencies.

I have added most of them on the side bar of my humble blog. If I have missed any I will update them. Also feel free to let me know of other places you go to find out what is going on in the industry.
