Over the course of the last five years, I've committed a few times to blogging daily in an effort to reach more people and grow my audience. I've been modestly successful. Each blog post takes 30 minutes to an hour of my time. That includes creating graphics, making sure all of my SEO is correct, etc. I've come to the realization that I'm not getting much in return for my investment. So, today will be the last daily blog… Continue

I just finished a 7-day blog challenge with Jeff Goins and it was fun, interesting, challenging, and just what I needed. I got some things accomplished that I should’ve already done, and tried some new things that I wouldn’t have thought to do. Here are some things I learned:
Day 1: Know what you’re about. This assignment was to write a manifesto. To identify what you and your blog are about. This was fun and helpful. It helped me crystallize my thinking and… Continue

You need to be strategic in your social media efforts to increase exposure and expand your brand. Each social media site can be looked at as a modern networking event; it happens every day throughout the day. It can bring more exposure than the regular in-person networking events although those events are important as well. The difference… Continue

Creative, high-tech eLearning instructional designers are the new content marketers. | An HR recruiter

The formula is fairly consistent—present a problem, offer a solution, and end with a call to action. Typically, the blog posts are more about persuading the reader to utilize the company's… Continue

"Keep it simple." That's what we say, right? Whether we're launching a new business or putting together a military campaign one of the keys to success is a clear understanding of the overall objective.
The complexity comes in when we have multiple lines of effort involved. Let's think about our marketing effort for our new coaching offering. The objective is to add 5 new coaching clients in the next 90 days. Do meet this objective we use three different lines of effort.

It was just over a year ago that I sat with pencil in hand at the Sanctuary and wrote down the goal to write at least four blogs a week for a year.
Throughout the summer I wanted to abandon the deal, but I stuck with it and I've seen great success.
At the time I wrote the goal, I was ready to spring from my corporate job, start a coaching career, burn all bridges and move on.
But I have a family and I got a new boss, Farnoosh Brock helped me navigate corporate waters… Continue

But then I hired several good coaches. A physical trainer who himself had… Continue
