My mentor, Darren Hardy, has a daily mentoring message that has helped me achieve great things in the past year. My companies have seen more growth and I've achieved more personal satisfaction because of the effort he's put in to supporting and encouraging me. I highly recommend signing up for his messages! Take a few minutes each day to listen to them and reflect on them, and they'll help kick you into high gear too!
It's OUR ANNIVERSARY!! A HUGE Congratulations to those who have been with me since day one. I founded, funded and produced these daily mentoring sessions as a way to give back.

I dislike this commercial on SO MANY levels. A Mom disapproving of Dad playing with the kids?! Really? I don't know of a single mother who doesn't wish for more time to do that or that Dad would do that more. And her priority? Watch TV. Oh yeah... Time Warner failed on this one in so many ways... #fail   #failhard

Great post from my friend, Mark Wayne Adams. There's no such think as "steady" income if you're in business for yourself, no matter what line of work it is, unless you've got multiple streams of income that complement each other nicely. Then? All bets are off!
Recently, I was asked, "how do you create a steady $1,500.00 a month publishing books?"

Happy to be featured in the @NewsTimes today as someone who helps #business #authors publish or #selfpub #books! :-)

Nice little article in the Waterbury Republican American. I may have to go down to the newsstand to buy a few copies. :-)

Ever toy with the idea of writing a book? If you're a thought leader, consultant, coach or entrepreneur, it may be just the differentiator you need!
Have you ever wondered how to make a bigger impact than you already have? For many business professionals, time is the rate-limiting factor. You can only connect with so many people in a given number of hours. So how do you take things to the next level? Well, there are a number of different ...

My friend, Wendy Keller, wrote a great piece that outlines month-by-month the steps you can take this year to land that new publishing contract you were hoping for. Check it out!
Want to get a deal from a traditional publisher in 2015? Here's your easy monthly To Do list to help you plan your way to a book deal by the end of the year. (Hint: Print this out and follow along each month and voila! You'll have a nonfiction book by the end of this year, likely sold!) ...

Tara R. Alemany is the owner and founder of Aleweb Social Marketing. (In keeping with the times, her daughter created the “Aleweb” name as a mash-up between their last name and “the web.”) Tara brings more than 20 years of experience writing, training, and providing application support and business process analysis. All of these skills are used in helping her clients achieve their goals. She is frequently acknowledged for her speaking ability and knowledgeable expertise that she leverages to educate both technophobes and a variety of age groups.

She is also a contributing author for the Lead Change Group, which was recognized by Evan Carmichael as one of the Top Leadership Blogs of 2010 (ranking 13th in a field of 50 blogs). The Lead Change Group is committed to instigating a leadership change. Members of this group “encourage, energize and equip one another to apply character-based leadership to Lead Change… In Ourselves… In Others… and In Our Communities.”

In 2011, Tara joined the founding Board of Directors of Forest Haven, a non-profit ministry located in Bradford, NH.

As Tara works with different organizations and speaks to various groups, she regularly keeps her business’s guiding principle in mind, which is based on Ephesians 4:29. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

In addition to her professional endeavors, Tara is a musician, short-term missionary, martial artist and a mother of two teenagers (one of each). Oh! And did you know that she juggles too?

Served as a short-term missionary in Tanzania in 2005 and 2009. Joined the Speakers and Authors Networking Group (SANG) in 2012, and Jeff Hayzlett's MUSE Mastermind group.

Every "go to" person needs a "go to" person, and for me, that's Jon Dupree of Calibrate Marketing & Mentoring. It doesn't happen often, but there are times when I run into a technical issue that's beyond my technical expertise, and in the interest of serving my clients and my businesses in the best way possible, when I'm stuck, Jon's the guy I call. His response is always fast and courteous, and he knows his stuff better than anyone else I know. Whether you need technical help, SEO support or a guiding hand for making your marketing work, I can't recommend Calibrate Marketing & Mentoring more.

Pat of Precision Pump Services is a highly professional individual who offers great service and reasonable rates. When it looked like my pump had been hit by lightening and would need to be replaced, his estimate was significantly less than everyone else that I called. To save me money, he told me how to jerry-rig a set-up so that I'd have water for the weekend (instead of paying holiday weekend rates), and he'd come out to take care of everything on Monday. When he arrived, he quickly located and repaired the issue (which was the wiring, not the pump). So, the overall project cost much less than he'd originally estimated as well. Great service. Reasonable pricing. Knowledge person. Fun to talk with. I definitely will be using Pat's services again in the future.

Last week, the feed on my printer died. In connecting with Rick Van Akin, he was able to give me some quick advice in order to decide what to do next. When it suddenly became urgent this weekend for me to have a working printer, I went out and bought one, brought it home and struggled for 3 hours to get it to work correctly. Being a Sunday night, I had little recourse but to finally give up. I contacted Rick first thing this morning, and he was able to support me remotely, even though I hadn't purchased the unit through him. Without his assistance, I would have gone to a speaking engagement without any handouts! Not a good thing... I highly recommend Rick for his knowledge, insight, and flexibility. You can be certain I'll be coming back to him again!

I had a family heirloom that I was loathe to let anyone "play with" even though it was showing signs of wear and tear. But when it ended up breaking, I asked Bill to take a look at it. He and his guys were able to restore it beautifully, so that you can't even tell it had been in pieces earlier! Since then, he's worked on other projects for me, and I've been happy every time!

I reserved a space online at this facility through ParkWhiz. My destination was the Hammerstein Ballroom, which is what I'd entered into the site when looking for a parking place. I'd also indicated that I needed a space from 6-11pm. I paid for my reservation, which ended up being associated somehow with a game package for MSG. My voucher indicated I'd be parking from 6pm until 1 hour after game time. I had no idea when that was, but since I'd specified I needed parking until 11, I assumed things were alright. When I got to the lot, I was informed that games get out at 9pm. So, I needed to pick my car up no later than 10. I explained what had happened to the parking attendant, Walter, who was a pleasure to work with. Even though the lot closed at 10, he said he'd wait for me to return at 11. The situation wasn't his fault. He didn't need to do that. His level of customer service went above and beyond what his job required, and I am extremely thankful for his sensitivity. You can be assured... With Walter looking out for you, you're in great hands!

I came home late one Saturday night in February 2011 to find that I had an ice dam that was leaking in through my bathroom window sill. It was too late at night to do much, so I kept sopping up the puddle, and doing my best to minimize the damage. Eventually, the cold outside refroze the moisture and I was able to go to bed. The next morning, I had no idea who to call or what to do to resolve the issue. I'd met Charlie Harrison a few times at a networking meeting, and he'd recently spoken about ice damage and what to do. So, I shot him an e-mail early that Sunday morning with a subject line that read "If you read your e-mail on Sunday, give me a call!" Immediately my phone rang, and Charlie clearly walked me through everything I needed to do. His calm responses and positive attitude made me feel as though everything was going to work out alright; and thanks to his guidance and connections, it did! That would all be a great customer service story if he were my insurance agent. But at that point in time, he wasn't! I was simply someone he knew that needed help. I didn't even know the name of my own insurance rep anymore. So, Charlie quickly became my new one!
