Pictures from trip to Vienna, Austria

I want to start sharing the many photos I took during my recent family vacation to Bavaria and Austria. I am going to start with Schnobrunn Palace, which was one the highlights of the trip. It was a rainy day, unfortunately, but it is amazing how well kept this palace is - and how the royalty of the past lived! It's a little bit out of the center of Vienna but worth the visit! More pictures to come!

How many needs can you satisfy yourself; without the support and help of others? Social media proves that people need to be needed, to be loved, to be paid attention to. It’s not just about marketing all the time, it’s about attention and the need or want…
Social media users want to be sold to. Here's how you can approach them right by learning what they need on social media first!

3 Easy Ways to Establish a Digital Executive Brand

My latest LinkedIn blog post is out, and this time I look at personal branding for executives in a digital age and explore the options that I most recommend they implement.

It is true that I did not include Google Plus as one of those options as I limited myself to three. I suppose it would be another option to replace Twitter, for which it would be most similar to in terms of having a dynamic branded presence.

Which raises an important question: Do you know of any CEOs that regularly engage on Google Plus? Would love to see a list if one exists!
Executive personal branding in a digital world is more important than ever. Whether it's potential customers, business partners, or future employers (or employees), there are many who are doing

I recently leased a new car from Thomas Acura, and all I can say is that the experience was a most pleasant one. I never felt pressured, felt that all of my requests were met, and Fernando was one of the best car dealer salesperson I have ever engaged with. It was worth the drive out from Irvine to Covina, so if you live in Southern California, give Fernando a call - and tell him Neal sent 'ya ;-)
