Empowering YOU… to Attract Possibilities...

Whether on the golf course or on the golf course of life, focus is the key to success!

 

I guarantee you will run into many of these in life. The golf courses are designed to be difficult to get to the green and isn’t it the same in life?

 

The difference may be that the bunkers, beaches (as I like to refer to the sandy bunkers) and water are mostly man made.

 

Have you ever noticed that if you fail to focus, you can get easily distracted?

Google is rolling out Hangouts on Air to all users worldwide

Google is rolling out Hangouts on Air to all users worldwide | Getting Focused | Scoop.it
After initially offering the service to a limited number of users, Google is finally rolling out its Hangouts on Air feature to Google+ users around the world.

We’ve seen some great uses of people being able to publicly broadcast their hangouts, from celebrity interviews to showcasing non-profit initiatives.

Curious about what the new feature holds? Google explains:

 

Broadcast publicly. By checking “Enable Hangouts On Air,” you can broadcast your live hangout—from the Google+ stream, your YouTube channel or your website—to the entire world.


See how many viewers you’ve got. During your broadcast, you can look inside the hangout to see how many people are watching live.


Record and re-share. Once you’re off the air, we’ll upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it’s easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it’s over.

How Actions Become Stories - 5 Tips on Business Storytelling

How Actions Become Stories - 5 Tips on Business Storytelling | Getting Focused | Scoop.it

The phone company double charged me. It took hours on the telephone, fax transmissions containing my bank account details, and three trips to the downtown store to finally get a refund. Time wasted, that’s my AT&T story.

 

Meanwhile, I stopped for lunch. When the employees informed me that they didn’t have any rice, they apologized, gave me a (no-rice) burrito for free, and handed me a coupon for my next visit. Outstanding courtesy, that’s my Chipotle story.

 

Business storytelling is more than a ‘Unique Value Proposition’ told on an elevator. It goes beyond giving an entertaining PowerPoint presentation. Your business story is made up of every action you take. The better you know your story, the easier it is to actively embody it.

 

Keep the following tips in mind when creating your ever-unfolding business narrative.
