Excerpt from the article by Moz Blog:

10 Super Simple Tools to Regain Control When Someone Pushes Your Buttons

10 Super Simple Tools to Regain Control When Someone Pushes Your Buttons | Leadership, communications | Scoop.it

This is the time of year when many of us find ourselves stressed and dealing with people who push our buttons whether on purpose or by accident.

 

Buttons are those areas that when touched on by someone in the course of communication, make us react. Some are bigger buttons than others but everyone has them and we all need tools for handling the communication when those buttons are approached or pushed.

Great list! The first one is so true. I see a dozen investor pitches a week, and almost all of them are product pitches. What young entrepreneurs need to know is "it's not about the product".


Yes, you are enamored and passionate about your product, as you should be. Investors don't care. What they do care about is that you are solving a big problem for lots or people, and that you and your team are the right ones to accelerate and execute on your plans. Oh, and if you want to see what actual successful investor pitches look like, see here: http://bit.ly/FiverrInvestorPitchDeck

Business communication takes many forms and all are important, but as the written word remains central to the majority of business management and business administration activities, it is critical for business owners to master the skill of effective business writing.


Unfortunately, effective business writing is not taught in far too many educational institutions, and as a consequence acquiring the necessary skills is usually a hit and miss affair for many business owners.


This excellent article, taps into the need of many business owners for a concise guide to effective business writing, and it provides 10 clear tips to follow to improve one's business writing skills.
