5 Lessons Every Entrepreneur Can Learn From Shark Tank

5 Lessons Every Entrepreneur Can Learn From Shark Tank

Marketing Strategy
The television show Shark Tank has become something of a phenomenon, especially with the entrepreneurial set. So as I was trying to think of a pop culture situation and lessons we can learn for today's  post, I knew this would be a good one related to small business owners. What is Shark Tank? Shark Tank is a business-themed show in which business tycoons, the ‘Sharks,’ hear pitches from entrepreneurs, with the goal of investing in the best businesses and products. The Sharks are tough, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons that give budding entrepreneurs the chance to make their dreams come true and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires. It amazes me how many people make it through the multiple pre-qualification rounds to actually make it to the…

One Reason Why I Love Using Facebook

One Reason Why I Love Using Facebook

Random Chats, Social Media
We hear so many people gripe and complain about Facebook, that this post is kind of nice to write. I’ll be the first to admit that Facebook is not where I hang my hat. However, the one thing I absolutely love about Facebook is that I get to keep up with my friends. Friends that I have known since high school, friends I have made over my adult years, and friends I have made over social media. Many of my never-met-in-person social media friends are people that I talk to every day! I also don't have the time, money or energy to gallivant around the globe to see all my friends. Facebook solves this problem for me in one neat package. I love that I have somewhere to share my…

My Attempt to Correct Marketing Industry Mistakes

My Attempt to Correct Marketing Industry Mistakes

Random Chats
It's Day 6 of the Just Blog It 30-day Blog Challenge for Entrepreneurs, and today's challenge is about industry pet peeves: What's one thing that happens in my industry that gets under my skin?   My Pet Peeve in The Marketing Industry As a marketing professional, my pet peeve is that too many people have launched themselves as social media experts, and they get business owners all hyped up on social media like it's the next coming. Most of the so-called social media experts that are selling products to small business owners are clueless, but they can sound like they know what they're talking about to an uninformed business owner who doesn't know the difference... that is, until said business owner has a conversation with me. I'm always debunking something! Why is this a…

Best Advice I Ever Received: A Pivotal Decision Needs To Be Made

Random Chats
I've had plenty of advice given to me over the years, some good, and some just sucked. However, a few years ago, my hubby gave me a piece of advice that turned out to be pivotal to my lifestyle, my business, and my future. Would you like to hear about it? Here ya go! How it started I danced between being a stay-at-home mom and keeping a regular 9-to-5 job since having kids. I'd get a job ( a good one by some folks standards), stay a couple years, leave and come back home, get another job, stay a couple years, leave and come back home... you get the idea. Every job I secured couldn't squash my overwhelming sense of being  my own boss. Never mind the fact that I never…

Top 5 Must Have Twitter Lists Every Entrepreneur Should Use

Top 5 Must Have Twitter Lists Every Entrepreneur Should Use

Social Media
Are you using Twitter lists to manage your Twitter timeline? When you’re actively using Twitter, consistently following and engaging new tweeps, your following will grow so large that it will become a challenge to manage. Twitter lists are one way to manage your busy timeline. Twitter gives you the easy ability to group people into specific lists, which you can refer to quickly to catch up with tweets you may have otherwise missed. Twitter lists are the best, most effective way to isolate tweets from specific people, so that you can look at them separate from your crowded timeline. Quick Tip: Did you know you can follow Twitter profiles using lists without actually following their accounts, which means these users aren’t notified that you’re following them. Technically, you’re not following; you’re…
