This should be awesome reading....don't miss it!!
 
"Attention without trust has no value."

Every business business wants attention.

That's why so many people are willing to pay for Facebook ads. You pay money and people will click your link.

Attention is why companies strive for "Viral" content. Mass amounts of attention in a short period of time. 

But over and over these attention driving actions yield lackluster results in the metrics that really matter... revenue.

That's because traditional interruption advertising and viral marketing lack the key ingredient to success in the digital world...

TRUST.

Today we launched Content Warfare: How to find your audience, tell your story and win the battle for attention.

This book is going to help you capture not just attention but revenue driving trust.

Pre-order your copy here: http://bit.ly/cwbook

You won't regret supporting this project. It's going to be gangster.

*Why Has Robyn Been M.I.A. on G+?"

I've started shooting some informal vlogs to document, among other things, my son's struggle with a disorder called "Eosinophilic Esophagitis"

2 weeks ago a feeding tube was recommended because he is losing weight because his esophagus is hurting so bad. He is 0.6% for his age. He is 9. (More about EE here: http://bit.ly/1o7fJYV)

We got a second opinion last week and we may be able to avoid a feeding tube if we take him to a Dr in Cincinnati who is one of the nation's leading experts on this disease and doesn't do feeding tubes. It's a 5 hour drive from Detroit. Very doable.  

So.....while I write and blog about simplifying your life.....it's never been more important than ever for my family and me to do it right now.

Here's this week's vlog, which has me a little happier with the possibility of avoiding a feeding tube: http://bit.ly/1iHPliZ

And last weeks vlog where I was still somewhat in shock but processing the news: http://bit.ly/1njhjt0

_ +Lany Sullivan , I am so sorry I never got back with you on that project! This is why....I am completely consumed with my son's health issues! I'll keep following ya though! :) Good luck!_

There's nothing I love more than a good #lifehack   ! I think a lot of success boils down to being successful in this ONE area!

Are you good at consolidating? Can you find an eaiser way to do something by thinking outside of the box? Do you like to experiment? Great for LifeHackers & an  #entrepreneur  !!

The best ones?

Not a fan of FB (need I say why to G+'ers?? :D) but I like Zuckerburg's #1 idea: Always have a major long term goal in mind." Yep, pretty darn important!

3. Make it fun. (Why do it if you hate it, right?? Amazing how many people miss this tip in life!)

4. Hack your time. (See previous comment on my adoration of #timehacking  !

6. Solve a real problem. (Duh! But how many people miss this in their business plan? A lot!)

Check out the article for more great wisdom!!
Why reinvent the wheel when you can take what’s worked for others and apply those principles directly to your business?

How do you feel about #Twitter  blocking 2 accounts based on political leaks? 

Is it "freedom of expression" or "national security" for the government of Turkey?
Twitter appears to have blocked two anonymous accounts that were used to release secretly recorded conversations implicating Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and senior government officials in a damning corruption scandal.

I share this with one caveat: Is your following converting into leads and sales? If not, it doesn't matter how many followers you have!

But the advice, as it always is from +Buffer  , is solid!

You are spot on!! Great take on this controversy. Always loved Cuban & Smith but more now! Check out the book "Information Diet." Has the idea media is entertainment rather than journalism. I plan to do a video review on it soon. Right in line with your video! Thanks for your perspective...i so agree!

Thanks so much for this video Steve +dottotech ! This is the exact model I need right now as I transition to more vlogging and video courses. My son has a very serious health condition that may require a feeding tube (he's just 9) & I have an autoimmune disease that can put me in bed for days. We are looking at driving 5 hours to a new dr for treatment for my son on a regular basis.

So working a traditional job is out of the question right now. And, as you might expect, money is an issue for us with medical bills, etc. Plus, I just absolutely LOVE working online. I don't know if I ever want a boss again! Ha!

Pateron would be perfect to give my biz some structure, exposure, and funding to get it going and me feeling like I'm not working and not seeing anything in return. 

Great, great video! My fave so far (but I think I say that for all of your videos!!)

I finally got a Samsung S5 so my Evernote app works (wasn't on my old SmartPhone) and now I need to go back and watch all your videos on that. A SmartPhone is worth it just for that app alone!

According to this article, the FCC will allow larger companies to pay for preferential treatment with Google.

The ramifications of this could be devastating so us smaller entrepreneurs. :-(

What are your thoughts on this?
The FCC will propose new net neutrality rules that at once protect content from discrimination, but also allow content companies to pay for preferential..

Public TV formerly was "free"  Now levels of charges for extra channels plus many advertising features have recently been added to many stations.  Social channels are more exclusive and  adds there are about as invasive as cable TV .  Personal opinion by the way.
