When someone schedules time with you on SoHelpful you don't want to just chat, do you? Of course not. You want to crush it - to make this brief moment with them a life-transforming event and the most valuable exchange of their career.  This is a skill - and you can learn how from a pro.

You'll learn  ... 

- How to be present when you are coaching
- How to build rapport
- How to become a better listener
- How to increase self-awareness in others
- How to balance comfort and pressure to help someone learn
- How to guide others without prescribing solutions
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Gale Stafford. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

I’ve Seen The Future Of Health Tech And It’s Going To Improve Your Life In 2014

I just returned from the most exciting Consumer Electronics Show I’ve ever covered. Thanks to extraordinary demand for gadgets that make us healthier, stronger, and smarter, the technology industry is putting some serious brain power behind the next generation of wearable health devices. Over the next year, a torrent of new devices is hitting the market to provide automated elite coaching, a pocket-sized clinical lab, and your own personal assistant.

Kevin has a homework assignment in Helpful Marketing #9. "If you have a blog, take a look back at your most and least popular posts as I have done. If not, think back to the most memorable and useful content you’ve read online recently. Do you see a similar pattern?"

The most popular posts I've written are the practical posts. One is "How do you change organizational culture? Start with a good model" and the most popular one of all is "Managing your life with the cloud: Evernote, Trello, Dropbox, Google Apps, and Hojoki." Google sends me a lot of traffic on this post every day, from around the world.

It all supports Kevin's point: people like content and products that solve a pressing problem.

"The most popular posts I've written are the practical posts. “

This is totally true for me.  The only time recently I’ve strayed from the “practical” is when I’m trying to influence a small number of thought leaders.

For instance...

But for the most part…nobody gives a c--p about my theories or ideas - they only care whether when I’m doing helps them solve problems.  


(sorry about the slow reply - Google turned off my notification settings and I just saw this.)

Unified inbox for android
 
Mailbe.at brings new email inbox to Android

http://www.mailbe.at is a new email system for Android that brings todos, emails, and other data together into a new contextual inbox.

Here's what they promise:

Related Emails:
Gain better understanding from an email's topic by viewing other related emails.
Automatic Organization by Topic:
View a cluster of emails (this is not an email thread) based on a specific topic, independent of which contacts the emails are from, conversations, or replies.
Contextual Calendar Entries:
Create a new calendar entry right inside mailbe.at, whenever the content of an email suggests a date and time.
Smart To-Do-List:
New To-Do lists are generated from emails that contain a type of list - a shopping list emailed by your wife becomes a new To-Do list.

Watch this video to see if it's for you.

Great post from Kevin Dewalt on the way to win at marketing.
 
In my career I’ve seen two major waves of marketing.  Pre-1995 we had the “Madmen” era of mass consumer marketing.  At the dawn of the Internet “Permission Marketing” -  popularized by Seth Godin -  supplanted mass marketing  

Permission Marketing is just no longer effective - if you don’t believe me, look at your email inbox.  The only way to get customers attention is by PROVING you help them solve problems.

The best modern example?  +Gary Vaynerchuk

Thanks Ben! I wish I could be in NYC for the holidays. It's been around 15 years since I've been there. Merry Christmas to you!
