One Simple Life Hack to Help You Create Good Habits

I don’t pretend to have all the answers. But lately I’ve been implementing a little trick that has helped me. I think it can help you too.

My agency is growing. We have amazing clients. We also produce a world class conference. The conference and the clients are synergistic events on paper. In execution they are at odds. One takes from the other in time, energy and sweat equity. I needed to clone myself, or find a solution.

4 Simple Ways to Control Your Career Destiny

When I first learned about social media I was so excited I bought FacebookShouldHireMe.com. I wanted to get Facebook’s attention. It didn’t work. Whatever. But other people took notice. I got coverage in Fortune Magazine.

That attention helped me get my first job in social media at Buddy Media. After that experience my personal blog evolved. It became my main marketing tool for business. The content I created insulated my personal brand. It kind of happened by accident.

The #1 Mistake All Salespeople Make

For the majority of my career I’ve had the word “sales” in my title, but it wasn’t always that way. I remember when the transition happened. I was working at a company called Mediaplex in early 2000. This was the peak of the Internet bubble. I had just started working there as an Account Manager, and my first account was The Digital Edge, the digital division of Y&R. I became friendly with everyone on that account. I would spend 2 days a week in their offices training them, and getting to know them. The time I spent with her was invaluable. After only a few months I grew the account from 1 to 13 clients. My good work didn’t go unnoticed, and management moved me into sales.
