If Not NOW, Then When?

If Not NOW, Then When?

  My partner recently wrote a brilliant piece about how he crafts a proper strategy with a client and then rolls it out. Carefully, diligently and mindfully. Now, as a spectator, I assure you, it is a beautiful thing to watch unroll. You too can...

Thank you, Neil Smith. I have always bucked the system and even today have a reputation of being a rebel or renegade. While I see everything through the lens of being competitive and surviving, alas, far too many don't share that viewpoint. Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks for this article which really resonated with me. It has been my experience that people in high places (relatively speaking) rarely like being told that there is another, possibly better way to do things. Some don't mind suffering or doing badly so long as someone else suffers more or does worse. More power to your pen.

Well yes, Nic, because there are a number of LinkedIn-malcontents on beBee who battled for nearly two years to keep LI from shooting itself in the foot -- which I guess it didn't do given its recent sale for $26 billion. Cheers!

There you go Phil Friedman offering my muscles some resistance once again. Smart man! You know, I wouldn't know so much about LinkedIn if it hadn't been for beBee...

Go BIG or Go Home!

   Isn’t it funny how we think we get smarter as we age? Truth is, if we are brutally honest, we are a lot more opinionated, a bit more mellowed and a lot less gonad-ed.I re-learned a lesson the other day. When I was younger, I often heard...

Hey thanks Harvey Lloyd I tried to be proper with the English. I even looked it up to no avail. Finally decided the SWAG (scientific wild ass guess) was the preferred method. Must admit though, your visual is perfect. I might need a new keyboard! Cheers.

... less gonad-ed. LMAO. One of the traps of success is the risk of losing it. The super hero cape of the gonads seems to fly less once you are past just making the house payment. You gotta pay to play Great post. Not sure why but got a great chuckle out of the visual of a brass pair, with cape, flying around🤣

Many people, Charlene Norman, have yet to learn the art (and sheer work) of driving engagement on their posts. Their loss, however, because if you watch closely, where there is no response from an author to the comments on his or her post, there is a predictable drop in future attention. Even the people who shared will stop doing so. Not out of retaliation or pique. But out of a realization that the author wants to talk AT them and not with them. Cheers!

Really like this article. Very very nice. However, It was shared here on November 15th -- exactly 12 days ago. Perhaps Mr. Calvert has found himself travelling without a WiFi or perhaps he is working on his own seminar package to deliver to his own customers. Hope he pops up soon to acknowledge this hub Phil Friedman
