Top 5 ways to get more speaking gigs
LinkedIn
There are three marketing activities that have been the most help to my personal career and overall growth of our business:
  • Writing a book
  • Consistently delivering content through a blog

Yes, the first two are critical, but regular speaking is where you hit the lottery. When you get regular speaking engagements, people talk about you, spread your message and want to actively do business with you. It's where the magic happens and cuts through all the gatekeepers.

Why it's critical that small businesses test their disaster recovery plans
Business 2 Community

However, most businesses are unprepared for common disasters such as floods, hurricanes and cyberattacks. A recent survey suggests that 17 percent of businesses never test their disaster plans and one-third test only once a year. When they do test, 81 percent of respondents report problems, and 11 percent encounter major problems or "complete failure."

Get organized: More productive meetings
PC Magazine
Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, published an article recently with his one rule to eliminate useless meetings: no presentations. It's not hard to see where he's going, but it's an absolutist statement and some may not agree with it in 100 percent of all circumstances. The way to hold better meetings, some believe, is to first understand what kind of meeting you intend to hold, and then organize yourself and prepare for it accordingly. Taking a few simple steps in the planning phase of a meeting goes a long way toward making it more productive for everyone

6 things you thought wrong about introverts
The Huffington Post
If common stereotypes have anything to say on the matter, it's that introverts are socially awkward loners who abhor large crowds and just don't like people very much. An introvert may not be a particularly friendly or happy person, but hey, at least they're smarter and more creative than the average extrovert. Despite comprising an estimated one-third of the general population, introversion may be one of the most frequently misunderstood personality traits. But the silent revolution of introverts — catapulted into the spotlight largely by the work of Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking — is shedding light on the experience of introverts living in a culture that tends to value extroverted qualities like assertiveness and outspokenness over solitude and quiet contemplation.
