Join the conversation! Dorie Clark, author of Stand Out: How to Find Your Breakthrough Idea and Build a Following Around It, will be my guest for My Book Club.

A guide to becoming a recognized expert in your field

Too many people believe that if they keep their heads down and work hard, they'll be recognized as experts on the merits of their work. But that's simply not true anymore. To make a name for yourself, you have to capitalize on your unique perspective and knowledge and inspire others to listen and take action. But becoming a "thought leader" is a mysterious and opaque process. Where do the ideas come from, and how do they get noticed?

Dorie Clark explains how to identify the ideas that set you apart and promote them successfully. The key is to recognize your own value, cultivate your expertise, and put yourself out there.

Featuring vivid examples and drawing on interviews with Seth Godin, Dan Pink, David Allen, Robert Cialdini, and other thought leaders, Clark teaches readers how to develop a big idea, leverage existing affiliations, and build a community of followers. She offers not mere self-promotion, but an opportunity to change the world for the better while giving you the ultimate career insurance.

See the cool choices here:

My session is falling in the social media AND design session tracks.

The design track features Brian Solis, Oli Garnder of Unbounce, and more.

Really tough decisions to be made on what sessions to choose.

How many times does it take you to get a good selfie?
It always takes me more than one. I was testing my new Cowboy Studio light kit for videos. I really like it - super easy to use.
In case you need lights.

Google created this cool collage from my photos. These are no filter or editing, using one of the lights in the kit.

Stormy drive in Vermont.

Shot on my iPhone while driving. There was a spectacular bright rainbow that turned into a double rainbow and then a full arch rainbow with vivid colors. It wasn't possible to get a great shot of the rainbow because it was almost dark and it was raining but it was a gorgeous drive.
