Many business owners are actually afraid to ask for referrals, recommendations and testimonials from their customers, yet referrals are the lifeblood of successful businesses, and every business owner needs to overcome their fear and make referrals happen.


To build up the courage to ask for referrals is never easy for those business owners lacking confidence in themselves or their products or services, but there are ways such people can  get referrals happening, without actually having to directly ask for them.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 17, 3:44 PM

(From the article): Happiness is a loaded word in our culture, and in our workplace cultures. It’s important to keep in mind that we all have our own personal definition of happiness. But I firmly believe that a fulfilling career is a direct result of doing work that matters – that engages us mind, heart, and soul. Leaders can’t force employees into the zone, but they can certainly facilitate and nurture the process and make this more of a reality by making decisions that keep this in mind. And for employees – it’s a satisfying challenge if you decide to make it matter.

Buffet's Startup Tips Are so important I created a @HaikuDeck for his tips and for implied startup tips such as:

* Multiple Money - don't depend on one income source.

* Spending - buying things you don't need means selling stuff you do...eventually.

* Savings - Save then spend not the other way around.

* Investment - Never put all eggs in one basket no matter how beautiful the egg.
* Honesty - Honesty and character and lack of it are expensive and amplifed by money so don't expect from "cheap people".

  • don't depend on one income source. 
  • buying things you don't need means having to sell stuff you do. 
  • save then spend, not the other way around. 
  • never put all eggs in one basket no matter how beautiful the egg.

Six case studies that prove the power of content marketing

Six case studies that prove the power of content marketing | baby boomer entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

In October 2012 Econsultancy ran a survey which found that 90% of brands felt that content marketing would become more important over the following 12 months.

 

One year on it is hard to argue against the fact that content marketing is now among the most important trends in digital. However when we published the Content Marketing Survey Report with Outbrain, just 38% of respondents had a defined strategy in place. That is likely to have changed by now, however just to add more weight to the argument in favour of this discipline I have rounded up six case studies from various brands that have seen real results from content marketing....
