On December 5, 2013, the world mourns the loss of one of the greatest gifts humanity has ever endowed to itself: Nelson Mandela.
Fantastic business lessons to be learned from the life of Nelson Mandela.
New research looks at how experiences can positively shift our self-perception.
I often hear people say, "I'm the kind of person who…" or, "I'm not a people person.” These seemingly off-the-cuff comments suggest they’re resigned to not changing their self-perception—regardless if it’s inaccurate or self-defeating. My longtime colleague, Dr. Richard Davidson, founder and chair of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds, at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison, has studied neuroplasticity, the ability of the mind to change throughout life.
I believe this study to be very significant and true. From my personal experiences, one must break free from the repetetive negative experiences in order to transition to a much better way of thinking.

If you happen to be a start up founder by the name of Ben Kosinski, who founded Sumpto, then you are on to a great idea. Yes college student’s are more connected then ever, and also are eager to make a little extra income on the side.
Even if it comes in the way of perks and incentives. This is exactly the new opportunity brands have now to connect with the right influencers at major university’s.
Sumpto allows brands to evaluate college student’s influence based on their social media and digital footprints, ans essentially let’s them do the talking for them. A marvelous idea to say the least.
My insight is in the post, but you really should read this article. This is the direction brands should be heading in.
After rumors of a deal have swirled for weeks, Facebook has officially acquired facial recognition technology company Face.com.
It’s a complete acquisition, which means both talent and technology will now become Facebook’s in the deal. Though the exact terms of the deal were not disclosed, other outlets have reported the price in the neighborhood of $100 million. However, I’m hearing from two sources familiar with the terms of the deal that Face.com actually sold for a significantly lower amount, approximately $55 to $60 million in cash and stock (though it is unclear if this price is with or without an earnout included).
Facebook will soon know your every move with live cameras everywhere probably next.
An insightful post written by David Armano. I think asking yourself what comes after social is a very important question. Once you understand the conditions we are in, I believe it’s important to build strong relationships with people that go beyond social and fall into collaboration and context.
My insight is above.
As an entrepreneur currently building two businesses from the ground up, I can tell you, it’s hard work. We pay the price to make our vision a reality, and we have to pull off the impossible just about every day.
If you are an entrepreneur like myself, you might have similar feelings. You might feel like me, that the demands on your time just increase, while the days get nothing but shorter. At the end of the day, your exhausted, there is nothing left in the tank, your head hits the pillow, and your lucky to get six hours of sleep.
This may help remedy what is ailing you. This article titled ‘Reach Millennials Through Brand Advocates‘ is something you need to read.
It’s time to work a little smarter, and not harder, we have all heard that before. The essence of the article is this really. Combine the two biggest factors to help fuel your brand. Millennials, a tech savvy group, and advocates for your brand. You might say well easier said then done Tom. Hey I never said it was going to be easy, but I will give you a hint. How you treat people matters, both online and offline. Make a friend, create desire and close.
That is my commentary above. You need to read this article.
I gave my insight above, great article with truly creative ways to use Pinterest for charities and non profits.
It’s impossible to respect, value and admire great leadership if you can’t identify what makes a leader great. Because of this, the identity crisis I have written about that exists in today’s workplace is something that women leaders in particular have been facing for much too long. While the tide is changing and more women are being elevated into leadership roles, there is still much work to do. As of July 2013, there were only 19 female elected presidents and prime ministers in power around the globe. In the business world, women currently hold only 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEO positions and the same percentage of Fortune 1000 CEO positions. As women continue their upward trajectory in the business world, they have yet to be fully appreciated for the unique qualities and abilities they bring to the workplace.
A very interesting article.
2014 will certainly be the year that content curation goes mainstream. Some will call it social curation, and others will call it something else.

Social media blunders in 2013.
As we move into 2014 the complexity of the world wide web continues to evolve. One of the developments that will effectively help to minimize the learning curve, as well as offer a much higher end user experience, is the advancement of the application programming interface. (API)If you are not familiar with what this is, basically it allows developers to access programming from established programs and websites and to use the information in combination with their work to display content. This is probably a very simplistic way to explain the API, but that is it in a nutshell.This is a great article that expounds on the topic but also the need for developers to be able to combine api’s in a mashup to create superior products and experiences for end users. A great a article.

This article written by Ryan Holmes the CEO of Hootsuite speaks volumes about what we can expect to see change in social media in 2014.
I personally think as an entrepreneur, or a responsible business executive, it’s vital to get ahead of the technological curve. This way you can formulate a business plan, and implement some strategies to develop a competitive advantage over your competition, or perhaps even become more attractive to potential investors.

It’s a dog eat dog world, some might say survival of the fittest. In life you have to develop wisdom.
Intelligence without wisdom, is like a bright light leading you nowhere. The internet is full of narcissists. Perhaps not intentionally, but none the less a fact yes, shameless self promoters and people full of false promises.
We are all looking for that elusive blueprint for success. There is one for you, but first you must realize that there is no substitute for hard work. Next you must be willing to persevere.
As digital marketing has continued to become a powerhouse in the marketing tool belt it has required agencies to consider how they can best serve the needs of the brands they serve. We’ve seen agencies slap social media on their list of services with little true expertise. Now we are seeing agencies slap content marketing on their list of services as it has become the new cool that everyone is all the rage about.
This is just a telling piece of the necessary transformations companies must undergo to make their digital presence as effective as possible. It is also a great guide to what content marketing agencies must do to keep up with the digital times.
Yes, the content marketing game heats up as Oracle purchases the content marketing start up Compendium for an undisclosed amount of money. Apparently as you will learn from the article this is Oracle’s attempt to further compete with Salesforce.
Purchases such as these are really tell tale signs that content marketing as a whole is about to explode. All indications are that companies are increasing their budgets to create all different types of content on a publishing schedule to increase brand awareness and to help convert leads into customers.
There is a major shift taking place in search. And with this major overhaul, SEO is becoming increasing more confusing and mystifying.
Google has just recently done it’s fourth update to it’s search algorithm. Social media is undoubtedly playing a role now in SEO, as well as influencers. Is there such a thing now as social search?
Perhaps this is why many publishers are saying goodbye to SEO. I think this is an important article titled ‘Why publishers like BuzzFeed are kissing SEO goodbye’ I personally see nothing wrong with playing by the rules, and creating exciting, valuable relevant content that comes up in search.
But there is a part of me that knows that the more content that keeps getting created, millions of pieces every day, the chances of my content competing for certain key words and popping up on page one of a Google search diminishes. What do you think?
That is my insight.
I am a big believer in networking. However to be effective at networking with others there is a right way to do it, and several mistakes to avoid. Why network? It is vital for you to begin to establish connections and to cultivate business relationships.
Even if an aspiring professional may not be in a advantageous position right now, you just never know what position someone might be in down the road to help you. You also might meet someone who can introduce you to the “Right Person”.
