066: How Great Content Creators Make It Look Easy!

I believe every person no matter your job or industry must embrace the fact that they are the producer of their own reality tv series about their life. Now I don’t mean the over produced and fake versions of reality tv rather the real, raw and unfilter access types that make you feel like you could be on that show or that one of those reality tv stars reminds you of a friend of yours. Our first impression in 2018 and beyond happens online and having a website or being on social media isn’t...

062: The Secret To Connecting Your Business with Digital Natives Online

When most hear about selling online they either think about the overused term “social selling” or they think about the infomercial style selling where brands push webinars, online courses and free downloads in consumers faces to get them on their email list so they can hammer them with email upsells and limited space available marketing crap.

The idea of what an entrepreneur is the value of entrepreneurship has drastically transformed over the last many years. No matter which way you turn you are flooded with online courses teaching you how to get rich quick and the pontification of entrepreneurs that upon reaching great success want to highlight their rags to riches “memories.” But few talk about their failures while they are failing, their struggles as they are struggling or the crazy rollercoaster ride that is...

054: Artificial Intelligence - Translating the Geek-Speak

Three years ago when someone mentioned the idea of artificial intelligence most people would assume they were going to start referencing Star Wars, Robocop, Terminator, Space Odyssey and the Jetsons. In 2017 A.I. has taken on an entire new trend as more businesses start to invest in the technology and more references are being made to A.I. with tools and technology we use everyday. But what is Artificial Intelligence?What tools or technology do I use today that leverages artificial...

What role will transparency and authenticity play in our digital future? We often hear leaders especially marketers use the terms transparency and authenticity follow it up with phrases like “I hate that word” or “I know it's a buzzword but.” In my opinion, this not only takes away from the validity of these two powerful personality traits but it also sheds a light on the person who is talking about those terms.

048: C-Suite Must Empower Tech Employees In The Boardroom

The C-suite has lost its way when it comes to testing out new technology and selecting the right software and tools for the business. As we moved from on-premise/installed software to cloud computing we also moved from testing and setting up “bake-offs” for analyze tools to a cloud computing model that often time involves the executive reading about a new tool in a Forbes blog post and buying it with the company credit card and telling the employees to use it. We must change how we test...
