Using humour in a presentation is a great rapport builder. Not everyone can pull it off though - politicians making a joke rarely works well. Also, remember humour is a high risk opening strategy - there is little worse than standing in front of several hundred people when your opening joke has died. A real tumbleweed moment. 

As with all things presentation, keep it simple and use what you know works, is appropriate for your audience and matches your own style and personality.

21 Things You Need to Know About Self-Publishing 2.0

21 Things You Need to Know About Self-Publishing 2.0 | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on Copyblogger:
"I wanted to start at “zero” with this list to give you a guideline on what it’s all about.
This list is about writing, building your audience, publishing vs. self-publishing, self-publishing, and what I call “team-publishing” which is the direction you need to go if you want to professionally self-publish.
All of these things are important to build your skills, your audience, and ultimately readers of your books.

Follow these 21 steps I’ve laid out for you below, and you will create quality books.
1. Reality check
2. Audience first
3. If it doesn’t bleed, it doesn’t lead
4. Educate
5. Make it evergreen
6. How to build your blog audience, part I
7. How to build your blog audience, part II
8. How to build your blog audience, part III
9. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest — SHEBANG!
10. Marketing 101
11. Reality check on publishing
12. Self-publishing 101
13. Team publishing
14. Editing
15. Design
16. Interior design
17. Title
18. Sub-title
19. Audiobook
20. Video trailer
21. Marketing 201

Everything I describe above will lend credibility, authenticity, and ultimately audience to the effort:

- Building the platform and trust with your audience way in advance.
- Writing a strong story while at the same time delivering value.
- Connecting  all the dots on editing, design, title, print version, audio version.
- Having many strong marketing messages and a way of delivering those messages. Making sure the messages aren’t gimmicks, but real ways that show you are living the message you write about.
- Infusing professionalism into every aspect of the process. The goal here is not to publish as easily as possible. The goal is to publish professionally in a way that leaves the traditional publishers in the dust.

You are your own publisher.

You are the one who believes in the message and your art and now want to share it with others and ultimately it is you who is choosing yourself to deliver that message. A message that, when properly packaged, will be a delight to the reader to receive..."

Each step is explained with detailed information from the author author. Read full interesting article here:

The same as with the basic numbers   " 1- 2 -3- 4- 5 -6- 7- 8- 9- 0 "  Once,

you master them , unlimited horizons open , and you can make countless

other numbers...


But , how to be sure , what solid foundations mean ?


And where to find them !


The same , as the " roots" of this tree , firmly rooted on the ground...


But ,It can only " GROW" until a certain hight , because " PROGRAMMED"

The Coming Entrepreneurship Boom

Via Rick Passo
Rick Passo's curator insight, June 17, 2013 10:57 AM



Several facts have emerged in the course of Kauffman Foundation research that indicate the United States might be on the cusp of an entrepreneurship boom—not in spite of an aging population but because of it. This study shows that as the economic recession plagues the job market, more and more "baby-boomers" are becoming entrepreneurs. The decline of lifetime employment, the experience and knowledge of the age group, longer lifespan, and the effect of the current recession are all factors contributing to the increase in entrepreneurial activity in the baby boom generation. The study was conducted by Dane Stangler, senior analyst at the Kauffman Foundation.

Key findings: In every single year from 1996 to 2007, Americans between the ages of 55 and 64 had a higher rate of entrepreneurial activity than those aged 20-34, averaging a rate of entrepreneurial activity roughly one-third larger than their youngest counterparts.
The 20-34 age bracket has the lowest rate of entrepreneurial activity.
Long-term employment has fallen dramatically for people ages 35-64 over the past fifty years.
With longer life expectancies and greater health in later life, older generations may continue to start new firms—or mentor young entrepreneurs.
Since the first Internet-era recession, transaction costs and barriers to entry have fallen for entrepreneurs of every age.
