Meeting New People - Mention Somebody.   Have you met anyone on this community?  Or is there someone who has impressed you?  - or maybe someone who just intrigues you?   Why not mention them right here on this post.  

This is just an experiment, but as you know, we are currently conducting our "50,000 member review" and we want to do what we can to make this a real community - where people start to know each other and we have rich interconnections.  

So who wants to start?  Mention someone you have met here, or even just think is interesting - let's start meeting our fellow entrepreneurs.

A "simple" guide to building on online presence I saw this week. A good starting place for just about any business. I would just add that local businesses need to claim their local listings and unify their data across them.

What are the elements for "successful" entrepreneurial and creative collaboration? In the article below, +Abby Kerr and +Tami Smith reveal intimately how they "uncoupled" and why from their entrepreneurial collaboration.

In this climate of social creativity, I often advocate collaboration to catalyze exponential creativity. I presented substantial content on this topic to a group of business artists recently.

But not every collaboration is perfect, and not every collaboration has to be forever. Several of my entrepreneurial colleagues have partnered with peers but have felt spent in the end. "Nothing forces change more dramatically than a partnership," Twyla Tharp notes in her book The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together.

What are the elements of successful entrepreneurial and creative collaboration? I'm wondering if "termination dates" for projects helps in certain circumstances.

To have the maturity to realize you should "uncouple," and be able to do so seamlessly, says a lot about the integrity of a business. Great read.

24 Charts Of Leadership Styles Around The World

"British managers are diplomatic, casual, helpful, willing to compromise, and seeking to be fair, though they can be ruthless when necessary. Unfortunately, their adherence to tradition can result in a failure to comprehend differing values in others.

American managers are assertive, aggressive, goal and action oriented, confident, vigorous, optimistic, and ready for change. They are capable of teamwork and corporate spirit, but they value individual freedom and their first interest is furthering their own career.

French managers tend to be autocratic and paternalistic, with an impressive grasp of the many issues facing their company. Opinions of experienced middle managers and technical staff may be dismissed.

Swedish management is decentralized and democratic. The rationale is that better informed employees are more motivated and perform better. The drawback is that decisions can be delayed.

German managers strive to create a perfect system. There is a clear chain of command in each department and information and instructions are passed down from the top. Nonetheless, considerable value is placed on consensus."

Small Business SEO Tip #6:  Download Search Ranking App

I thought I’d throw this tip in the mix since a lot of small business owners have asked me about this.  Sometimes I’ll be in a meeting and reference my SEO Rank mobile app and they’re like What is that?  

This is great for checking your keyword rankings on the go -- It’s very convenient, accurate, and updates your keyword rankings immediately, highly recommended.  

I know a lot of small business owners can get pretty obsessive about checking rankings.  So download this app and check them at your convenience. 

Download App - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/seo-search-ranking/id320423449?mt=8

Business Tweeters Think First Then Tweet
A general common-sense people-first approach can make the difference.

The article showcases a few select tweet techniques that didn't pass the common-sense post-ready test. And offers some suggestions and things to consider before posting a tweet.

COMMON SENSE TWEETS

When trying to cash-in views by posting on popular hash tags, it's best to use some common-sense. For example, if you don't know what the tag refers, don't wantonly use it to try to sell your brand just because it's trending.

Some people think-tweet, that is, they're "thinking" while they're tweeting, not good advice for an official brand posting from your business.... It's better common-sense to think first, then compose the post, review post... then tweet.  Think First, Then Tweet.

On the other hand, do you think any of these really harmed any of these companies to a large extent?

https://www.yahoo.com/tech/countdown-the-13-worst-tweets-of-all-time-82929946554.html
On Monday, the US Airways Twitter account replied to a customer with a tweet that included a photo of a sex act involving a toy plane. It was, in our estimation, the Worst Tweet of All Time. That’s not to say that the US Airways toy-plane-sex-act tweet didn’t have some tough competition for that crown. Twitter, for all its witty personalities, fab celebs, and news breakers, can also be a cesspool of racist jokes, unscrupulous portraiture, and ...

For some of us, #proposal writing is often more black art than science. Many of the #coaches, #consultants and other professionals who I talk to admit to losing more sleep over proposal writing than most other facets of their business. But it doesn’t have to be that way…
Here are seven deadly deal busters including the most lethal one of all. Avoiding them will help your cash register ring more often!

How many of you out there have WordPress Web sites for your business? 

Did you know that there are typically five or more user names and passwords associated with having a WordPress Web site?  When was the last time you changed all five of those passwords?

Each of these items below have a user name and password for a WordPress site.

1. Domain name registrar
2. Hosting account (Even if it's the same company as the domain, hosting typically has a separate user name and password)
3. FTP account (Not always needed for WordPress, but we on occasion FTP into a site for things we can't do in the WP Dashboard. 
4. WordPress Database account. 
5. WordPress Admin Dashboard account(s) There can be more than one!

So, if you are actively managing your Web site, or having someone do it for you, be sure you have all your user names and passwords changed on a regular basis.

Connecting Values to Customers’ Experiences:

This article draws how “The whole Starbucks story is a triumph of brand over product and experience over commodity. It may be little dismissive to put it this way, but there is nothing substantial at the heart of what Starbucks does. No real emotional pull, no deeper meaning and, definitely, nothing of the value of the public’s perceptions of the cooperative movement. And yet, significantly, an experience, reinforced at all of the points that matter, that engages people, builds advocacy and explains the company’s unprecedented success.”
