Good times with interviews! I took this week off from blogging and ended up in an interview with Nicholas Scalice for his blog.

This is a little bit of productivity mixed in with some thoughts on marketing. There was only one question he asked that didn't make it to the final cut because I didn't have a good answer.... and that's what my favorite marketing book is. I have a few and I'm so terrible at choosing favorites so let me know if you have an opinion!

Don't we all love it when our fans and followers heap praise on us? And yet sometimes we need a reality check... that's what happens in today's podcast when a listener calls us out on our crankiness. And even though the topic of this podcast is "negative reviews", the point is to show you what a positive impact they can have on your business.
Don't get caught in the echo chamber of praise from fans. Pay attention to negative feedback because that's they only way you'll learn to improve.

Today we talk serious GTD (Getting Things Done) - how it has changed our lives and how you can use it to help you, too. If you run around wondering how the heck to get out from behind the eight ball and have more time to do stuff - especially stuff you like - listen in and let us turn you into GTD converts, too.
Today we talk some serious GTD (Getting Things Done). It's a system taught by David Allen and it's worked wonders for us. We share the 5 steps (collect, clarify, organize, reflect, engage), some of our trip-ups and share what we've learned.

Stuck on a blog post? Can't think of what to say or just in a writing rut? Listen to +Sharon Hurley Hall who tells us, "If I’m stuck down a writing dead end, I’ll play around with creating quote graphics from one of my posts." That sounds like fun!

Read all her great tips for getting more done and having more fun.
Work doesn't have to be boring. Here's how Sharon Hurley Hall has fun and still has time to be a great writer.

Routine gets you in a rut. Ritual sustains you. If you recognize the difference you can be amazingly productive! Check out what +Nick Armstrong has to say about it and get some inspiration from his stories.
Almost every morning since Ryland was born, I’ve had breakfast with him and my wife before I start my work day and before he goes to bed, my wife and I read him stories. As another revolution around the sun is coming to a close, consider: rituals and routines are not the same thing. Routines are largely unconscious …

Going to be joining +Wade Harman in just a few minutes. Catch you there!
 
The Epitome of Collaboration
This week I'll be joined in studio by not one, but two great bloggers,+Ralph M. Rivera and +Carol Lynn Rivera and I want to talk to them about collaboration and how a blogger can succeed with another blogger in the same space and why they would even want to.

Ralph and Carol Lynn are two of the best people I have found to talk to about this because when it comes to collaboration, they know how to cross the "T's" and dot the "i's".  Do you want to learn how to build a blogging community around you?  Guess what?  It can't be done by yourself.

In today's podcast we talk about tomorrow... more specifically, Tuesday, July 14, 2015, 7:49AM Eastern US when the New Horizons mission does its closest-ever flyby to Pluto. It's a historic moment that we're excited to witness. And that sparks a conversation about what it means to be successful and what it takes to get there. It sounds like a leap but trust me, we actually get to a point in less time than it took the New Horizons mission to get to Pluto.

When +Ryan Hanley shows up on your podcast for the THIRD time you know you've made it in this world.

We're polishing up his brass nameplate and reserving his chair right now, but in the meantime be sure to listen as he drops knowledge bombs all over the place about content marketing, what it really means to provide stellar customer service and building up your super fans.

We're big Ryan superfans here, no question.
Today we talk to Ryan Hanley about content marketing and learn: why is content marketing

Daydreaming can lead to clarity and choice can lead to inertia. Life is full of strange seeming contradictions! Read what +Sandy McDonald has to say on the matter and if you're waiting for your "ah-ha" moment, you won't find better inspiration.
There's a science behind why taking time out from the problems and issues of your life an inspire a light bulb moment of clarity.

+Sandy McDonald, I LOVE your idioms! When you say things like: dealing with the "dross"/take up the "cudgels", you add an Aussie flavor to your writing that those of us like me and Carol Lynn find SO unique and appealing. I wish I could remember more of your Aussie words and phrases right now but ... old age prevails. The memory is the second thing to go. LOL!

Summertime Social Media: Will You Take A Break?
socialsolutionscollective.com

Taking a break and a rest can revitalize and transform your social media marketing. Will you take a break this summer?

I've been seeing Dr. Chris Rooney for years, after a number of failed attempts to find a local dentist I could trust. I had been through several dentists in a short period of time because I was having trouble with a bonding that kept breaking. I was frustrated and eventually found Rooney & Rooney online and decided to try them out. I'm glad I did. Dr. Chris took the time to sit down with me, discuss my concerns and talk about my dental health. Since then he has worked with me on everything from bonding to whitening, Invisalign and regular cleanings and checkups. I even convinced my husband to go to the dentist after years of avoiding it and he has been going regularly ever since. Everything has always been explained to me clearly so that I know exactly what to expect. That takes the fear factor out and makes every visit calm and relaxed. I know I can rely on Dr. Chris to take the time to talk with me, address my questions and take care of whatever my needs are. He is honest, kind, understanding and excellent at what he does. The staff is also great. Everyone is friendly and caring and you never get that sense that you're "a bother" like you do at so many other businesses. They always answer the phone promptly and courteously and when you visit they make you feel comfortable and welcome. I would recommend Dr. Chris to anyone, whether you want top notch cosmetic dentistry or everyday care.
