Should you use the LinkedIn publishing platform?

Heck yes - and here are 4 reasons why - and one why NOT to use it!

When you have a growth mindset, it’s not win or lose. It’s win or learn.

This was just one smart quote shared by +David Burkus on this episode of #ShutUpShow.

I really love learning from smart, creative people like David. In just 30 minutes, he shared some excellent insights and talked a ton about fear. This was one of my favorite interviews I've gotten to do with +Berni Xiong , and we've done a ton.

If you want your week to be more creative, give this a listen.

You need more content. Here's how to think up a year's worth of blog post topics - in just an hour. 
 
How to Think Up a Year's Worth of Blog Post Topics in an Hour
 _"Who has their next year of blog post ideas at their fingertips, never mind thought of them all within an hour?"_

"Well, it's certainly not a myth. It's not even a luxury reserved for only well-established companies that are rolling in dough. All you need is a Google spreadsheet/Word doc/Evernote note/pen and paper, and the right blog topic brainstorming process.

You've already got the first part covered, so keep on reading to get the process we used to come up with those few hundred titles in under an hour. Remember: The key to this whole process is to not start from scratch each time you need a topic -- just iterate off old topics to come up with unique and compelling new topics."

Releasing 57 pounds is great. Feeling better and giving back is even better.

I did this fun backstage interview with my pal +Berni Xiong talking about my life, my work, and more. It was about 30 minutes, and was a lot of fun.

One of the smart bombs I offered was “How can you out give those people in your life that really and truly need to be given to?” 

Give it a watch and a listen.

How can Financial Advisors use social media more compliantly?

Are you posting stock tips for your clients on LinkedIn and Twitter? I hope not – as that’s a CLEAR violation of the rules and regulations of compliant social media use.

But that isn’t all that you shouldn’t post will get you into trouble. Posting untrue investment returns will get you in trouble. So will using the words guarantee and promise, as well as any number of other terms.

Want to know how to stay in the clear and post compliantly? 

Recently, the SEC levied a $100,000 fine on Jan. 30 against Grimaldi and Navigator Money Management Inc, his Wappingers Falls, New York, for tweets that they say misled investors.

Grimaldi and the firm used newsletters and Twitter in 2011 to plug the past performance of a mutual fund he managed, Sector Rotation, the SEC said. The agency focused in part on two tweets that claimed credit for the success of a performance model during a 10-year period, but Grimaldi and the firm were not involved in the strategy for part of that time.

What is Leverage?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the concept of leverage, and I realized I never asked myself a key question: What IS leverage? What does leverage really mean? Intrinsically, I guess I’ve known it for a long while, but honestly, I didn’t know if I could define it. It just sounded like a good word to use. I thought it would make me sound smart.

So what is leverage?

A free resource, yours for the clicking, and an update on your ask for help last week. OMG -- look: a businessman pushing a wheelbarrow!

I've been receiving therapeutic massage at Balance Point Massage Therapy for the past few months. Each time, I feel so much better after receiving a massage. By "better," I mean my bones feels refreshed and renewed, and ready to tackle the day. By better, I mean my muscles feel amazing and ready to tackle the rest of my day. It's increased my flexibility, helped me sleep better, and even taken care of some of my breathing challenges thanks to these Wisconsin winter. Who knew massage could take care of your sinus passages? Awesome stuff, and I can't recommend Balance Point Massage Therapy enough for anyone needing a terrific, well priced, therapeutic massage.
