Question: What is your greatest challenge in business? Just thinking about the ideas of challenge as I get +Startup Gap closer to publication. Looking to find out more about how you define your challenges? Have you defeated them? If not, what is stopping you? Is there a question you need answered? Some help? Let us know!

This is a great question Andy. A lot of the common questions I come across with my clients relate to increasing customer retention and attracting new business. I know there's a ton of stuff in those two broad areas that could be discussed, but they do seem to be perennial challenges!

+Daniel Auqui that is cool that they have a tool to help you edit the image. However, my plates are public, so I am not deeply concerned about blurring them.

Here is a post I wrote for +Kinsta! Great ideas for those in need of some +WordPress  event management plugins.

#wordpress   #wordpressplugins  
Have you ever run an event from a WordPress website? It is a challenge for most new event promoters. First, you need to get the word out. Second, you have to set up a ticket system. Third, you have collect payments.

Want to give a shout out to my final speaker on +Startup Gap before the book comes out in August: Dik Muller!

This was an awesome story that I had the chance to hear about his ups and downs in business over the past 50 plus years. He is an inspiration, and this is a really great story.

That being said, Start Up Gap will be back by the end of July with a weekly format again talking about business and entrepreneurs. Changing up the format a bit, and need time to write the book.

This would post should have been out earlier, but I got slammed this month with work, and I forgot to post it. My bad!

In the meantime, keep up with the book release by signing up at:

Great article by +Wade Harman on using +Circloscope for targeted Google+ followers.
 
Google Plus Circle Management Tips
Are you using a Google Plus circle management tool to help you yet?  There are lots of people using +Circloscope different ways and for different reasons and I wanted to show you my personal way of using this product to bring people closer to myself and my site.

The whole point is to build a targeted following and learn how to connect yourself with people that want to read your articles.  But how do you find them?  That's the question!  I will show you how I find people that are interested in what I have to say, get them to follow me, plus another cool promotional idea I use every week.

Read the article: http://goo.gl/gsHRJs

+Christine DeGraff +Ehsan Ahmadi Gharacheh  and +Craig Fifield have created a great product that really reaches into the heart of our Google Plus circles to extract the important people out and leave the rest of what we don't need where it's at.

That's where it saves us so much time and this is what I want to show you in the article.  What used to take days, now takes minutes to do.  Here's how I build a targeted following on Google Plus using this product.

If you would like to be in my Blog Notification circle, let me know and you will get notified every time I publish a post like this one (usually every Monday), both in your email and here on G+

As a blogger writers block is always for tomorrow. Completely get this quote by Warren Ellis then about being a writer.

“Writer's block? I've heard of this. This is when a writer cannot write, yes? Then that person isn't a writer anymore. I'm sorry, but the job is getting up in the f*ck*ng morning and writing for a living.”
― Warren Ellis

Do you hate those blog posts that just lie to you! Plain out mislead you? Then check out my latest LinkedIn blog post about how some are using blogging for petty self-promotion.

I guess that would be as opposed to regular self-promotion. Let me clarify then! A number of new LinkedIn blogs are sprouting up for the sole purpose of selling wares and recruiting people.

Not good, because it tarnishes the idea of content marketing. Content marketing is not old-line sales, but new line education based selling. Done improperly, and the entire blogging community suffers.

Learn more on my latest post.
As LinkedIn kicks off this experiment in blogging, I noticed a disturbing trend that needs to be remedied. Primarily people using LinkedIn as a promotions tab for their product.You know those posts

Great post from a client +Harrison Mann about how they use content marketing in their business.
One of the biggest buzzwords in the internet marketing world today is content marketing. It feels like you hear the word thrown around everywhere you go these days. The challenge most businesses face is not that they have not heard about content marketing, instead it is about understanding why they need and how it can…

Went there for a morning networking event, and the food was just ridiculously good. Had trouble networking, eating, and talking at the same time.

I was at a party recently and noticed how great the room was decorated with centerpieces, balloons even a balloon arch with the celebrant's name in letters. I was so impressed, I asked the organizers who decorated the room who did it. When they told me it was Judy of A-BnC Parties, I realized that is was my friend Mike's wife. Five Stars to you guys... very creative... proud to know you!

I have been going to flourish studios for over a year. The staff is great, and it is a huge open space, which is great for the meetings and events that I have attended here.
