Custom Keirsey Temperament Report for: Jim F 

Your Keirsey Temperament Sorter Results indicates that your personality type is that of the

Guardians are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services, from supervision to maintenance and supply, and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.

Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there's a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly -- they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.

Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.

Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population, and a good thing, because they usually end up doing all the indispensable but thankless jobs everyone else takes for granted.

Guardians at Work
As a Guardian, you enjoy working as a valued member of a team, whether you are leading it or following a credible leader. You like to work with people who carry their weight. You appreciate having clear-cut responsibilities and being recognized for your dedication and achievements. Your natural traits are those that employers have traditionally valued - and that successful companies still respect. You are responsible and loyal to an organization once you've signed on.

Establishing and following a familiar daily routine is critical to your well being. In your ideal job, you and your coworkers would all share information so that everyone could remain "on the same page” as projects move forward. Because you genuinely care about the people you work with, your colleagues and your customers appreciate your unassuming kindness.

Client Testimonials 

Do you ask your clients for testimonials and referrals? If not, you should...the testimonials are a super powerful means of social proof and referrals (especially from your best clients) are a great way to get new business.

WordPress Malware Detection, Plugins & Malware Removal
How to test your WordPress site and keep it safe!

There has been a ton of malware hitting up to 100,000+ #WordPress sites as a result of the Soak Soak . ru malware threat which started a few days ago..

We've had to remove the malware threat from a few sites and so I've put together this guide for you on how to detect malware on your WordPress site and then how to go about getting it removed. I hope it's of use to you and please share it with those who it may help.

View all the details here: http://robertryan.ie/wordpress-malware-detection-plugins-removal/

Malware is no joke and if you get hit with it, and Google discovers it, you can have a major dip in traffic and rankings as who is going to click on a link which says "this site may damage your computer"? If you get hit with Malware Google puts that warning beside your site in the SERPs, good for users, bad for your traffic..

Thankfully getting rid of malware isn't that difficult. Check the steps here:
http://robertryan.ie/wordpress-malware-detection-plugins-removal/

And if you've any questions please feel free to ask..

Have you experienced this malware threat? Any tips to add?

Are You Considering Crowdfunding As Part Of Your Biz Plan For 2015

+Carrie Roldan has graciously invited me to appear on her show tomorrow to share my wisdom on crowdfunding. We are going to take a bit of a different approach and show why more women should think about using it as a way for them to not only grow their business but expand their network. 
 
Crowdfunding: A Feminine Approach

I was at a networking event last week of women entrepreneurs called BLEND2day.  The whole point of event was to share our business and support each other.  As women, we have an inherent need to work in community, and help one another.  We love sharing a good thing, and are terrific word of mouth marketers, and that is why women’s networking groups can be so powerful, an why women often make terrific network marketers… or at least why we are drawn to network marketing.  There is something inherently fun for us about gathering together and sharing great information.

However, at this particular group, I noticed a disheartening trend.  The women who were introducing themselves and their businesses seemed afraid to THINK BIG.  I heard several women introduce themselves in a similar fashion to this:  “Hi I am Sally Jones, and I am a Nurse Practitioner.  I also sell Mary Kay, and I am here to support my friend Kelly who  invited me.  I have some awesome products here today that make great Christmas Presents.”

While we could go into detail about all of the things that are wrong with that intro from a marketing perspective, the bigger tragedy for me is that this woman is afraid to THINK BIG when it comes to her Mary Kay Business.  

So What does this have to do with Crowdfunding?  I believe that the notion of Crowdfunding is feminine at the core because it involves creating a community of supporters, who are willing to donate and share.  The  idea is simple, tell people what you want to accomplish, and ask for help in getting it done.  But the execution isn’t necessarily that simple.  Crowdfunding done well can produce some BIG results, beyond raising capital, but it’s not for every business, and it’s not for someone who just wants to sell a few Christmas gifts at a networking event.  

I am so interested in crowdfunding from a product launch standpoint!  To me, it seems like a very feminine approach to word of mouth marketing, and a great way to launch a new business OR a new product within an existing business, and I cant wait to talk about it with Crowdfunding Expert,  +James Fierce 

Jim and I met a few months ago when we were both guests on a hangout about being a great hangout host.  Jim is the host of a very popular hangout on air called Get Bizy with Jim and Kit where his aim is to support small business entrepreneurs.  In fact, Jim’s personal mission is to “Help small business entrepreneurs reach their full potential by focusing on their business model, fixing what's broken and expanding on what's not.” 

Jim is known as the innovation coach,  He is an Industry Disruptor - Results Driven Innovator - and Creative Idea Implementor. Creating and managing crowdfunding campaigns for his clients is one of the many ways Jim lives up to his reputation, and I cannot wait to chat it up with him!

About Jim Fierce
Jim was born in Cleveland OH on the same day as Elvis and David Bowie (Jan 8) but unfortunately was not gifted with any of their musical talent. At a young age Jim’s family moved to Caracas, Venezuela for a few years where he had the opportunity to become fluent in Spanish and learn first hand about Latino culture. 
Jim has had a varied career, he worked for 8 years as a quality supervisor with 3M and for a few years after that in the medical device field. A layoff, plant shutdown, and the desire to segue away from the corporate world prompted him to explore the world of entrepreneurship. In the process he discovered his passion for helping entrepreneurs achieve their dream and The Innovation Coach was born. Jim specializes in helping people sort through all of the low cost technology that’s now available and use it in a way that works for his clients

Is Crowdfunding on Your To Do List For 2015

Crowdfunding isn't just for techies. It is a useful platform for almost any business and the benefits go way beyond just fund raising. You can't beat it for marketing, extensive networking, proof of concept, and making connections that could elevate your business to new heights. 

It's not easy but nothing worthwhile is. 
 
+Carrie Roldan +James Fierce just listened to this  #carrieroldanshow  about #crowdfunding  Simple and informative. Well done, In fact we're going to be working with Jim on an upcoming campaign, knowing him you are going to hear a lot more about it. Crowdfunding rocks and it's not just about the money, it's about the networking and viral spreading and so much more.
