Greetings, and welcome to another very special gathering: our weekly bonfire!
I found some greats this week (hard not to with so many incredible online writers out there), and I’d be really curious to hear wether or not these titles grab your attention in the same way they did mine…
Let’s light it up!
A lesson on how to pull content out of the “recesses of your unconscious mind”? Yes, please! Peter Shallard asks three simple questions to help you get inside of your own mind (sounds creepier than it really is). My favorite is #2 – something I’ve been trying to do for years! I’ll get there…
Ginny Soskey writes a very well-crafted post focused on the importance of understanding the behaviors of your audience (why they think and act the way they do). It’s basically a really great psychology lesson that you can apply to your marketing strategy (without having to know a ton about psychology). Awesome!
In this post on ThinkTraffic, Corbett Barr shares the most common mistakes that come up in conversations with both aspiring and seasoned Entrepreneurs. As I was going down Corbett’s list, I couldn’t help but think, wow, this is so spot on. Then, I got to #10, which asks, “What would you add to this list?” I think I might add: “Not setting goals.“, or “Focusing on monetary goals instead of why you’re starting your business.” What would you add?
Jay Baer has quickly become one of my favorite writers in the online space, and with his new book out, Youtility, I couldn’t help but get into this Slideshare that he put together (some of the quotes happen to be directly from Jay’s new book). Coming from a guy who just debuted at #3 on the NY Times Best-seller List, I’m all ears!
In this post, Nick Loper talks about how he actually likes it when people unsubscribe from his email list. Why? Because he believes it forces improvement. I love this point of view – it’s refreshing and encouraging to hear Nick’s take on something that people are typically very fearful of. Thanks, Nick!
