Free Learning and Publications

~ 100 buzzes
There's tons of free publications, books and learning resources available on the net. Some of it is promotional, some of it is there in its entirety, whether it's an online MOOC, a book chapter or entire book, and so on.

Since I make available a ton of free chapters and mini-guides, I thought: "Why not create a hive so we can share with each other".

Feel free to use this to promote your free publications, sample chapters, and so on, but please respect others by not inundating this hive with junk, or posting too often.

Please upload material that belongs to you, or is available legally (no links to or uploads of copyright material)

Take what you like, and if you like it, share the original post, or the hive.

    Got 23 minutes? Like laughing. The brilliant Chris O"dowd and supporting cast in this Graham Linehan comedy series from England. This is the first episode.

    Part monty python. Often bizarre, sometimes satirical. You''ll love it or you'll hate it.

    #1 @Cyndi wilkins We all do that, and we all have our most hated triggers that cause us to RE-act - that gut response is almost always a firestarter.

    The one that gets me, is the use of ALWAYS, NEVER AND EVERYTIME, because something like "You never take out the garbage" is always inaccurate. Then the argument shifts to whether I ever, in my lifetime, took out the garbage, because of course, I just have to defend the accusation.

    This is great @Robert Bacal...I have to say the thing that infuriates me the most in a heated exchange is the "kitchen sinking." IE:" Remember that time 3 years ago when you did XYZ?...Well that really ticked me off!"

    That unleashes the snarko response in me..."Really....So what's your excuse today??"

    Then the firestorm ensues...and the hitting below the belt commences...It's like being at the WWF...No wonder it draws so many spectators! Maybe if people could begin to shift their individual focus to that of collaboration, we can collectively serve to shift the attitude among the masses to put more effort into finding peaceful solutions to our global conflicts...Just a thought;-)

    I like this a lot, because it's short, sweet, and helps you eliminate words or phrases that weaken the message you want to send to your presentation or speech audience.

    While it focuses on 25 phrases to eliminate, it also explains each one in brief, really giving you some principles to apply to other potential impact destroyers.

    PS. You may be asked to register. Also there's some other cheatsheets on public speaking from the same source - on powerpoint hints, calming your nerves, body language etc.

    I know some of you are interested in automating stuff on social media, from the response @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian is getting from his emerging app, so I reviewed this. I learned about a few of the services and options I didn't know about before, so I found this valuable as a starting point.

    A beginner's guide to social media automation tools and getting automation right.

    Automation is one of the most useful and strategic ways to maximize your social media presence. It enables you to reach your target audience at optimum times, maintain an active social media presence without having to be physically online 24/7 and ensure you remain constantly aware of all relevant mentions and updates related to your brand. It can also be a major turn off for prospective customers if you automate too much.

    In this eBook, you will learn about:

    What you can automate
    Tools of the trade
    Buffer
    Hootsuite
    IFTTT
    Zapier
    Best practices
    Learn what you can achieve through automated processes and why millions of businesses and individuals around the world are utilizing automation to maximize their social media activity today.

I mean , how do I know who is even real here? How do I even know if I am real? I'm gonna go and prick myself with a pin just in case. We are moving into a strange big eye of an automatic scary thing I think.

    #20 Eliza was a program in Basic designed to emulate the responses/conversations of a Rogerian psychotherapist. Initially written as a joke, it did a good job, not quite to the Turing test level, perhaps, but close.

    #21 and the fake porn accounts, or other spam machines, the same as for spam email, I guess.

    The interesting thing about BeBee if it implements rss feeds for our own posts is that then BeBee can be the endpoint for automated promotion of BeBee honey, without opening up BeBee to a stream of crap if they have an open API.

    I use a fraction of the automation functions I "could" use, don't auto-follow or auto return follow, and automate stuff that would be tedious to do if I was to do it manually.

    But I can't speak to all the tools described in this particular ebook. but in the spirit of people knowing what's available.

    #19 He didn't define it and I expect his definition would include manual accounts using automation software like Hootsuite, MeetEdgar, Tweepi and the up and coming champ from Paul C. I guess we all have no issue with that as these are promotion tools. What is frightening is the proliferation of fake accounts using algorithms to pick up hashtags and redistribute propaganda as we saw heavy usage during the US election cycle.

    #18 I'd be interested in knowing what Cuban's definition of a bot might be, @Dean Owen Automating some processes in social media isn't like setting up completely fake accounts to spam indescriminately, so there are shades of automating.

    I don't think automation is necessarily a good thing, but since I see social media, generally, as a rather vast wasteland, it doesn't bother me much.

    I try to use automation responsibily and in ways that should benefit followers and readers and to share what I think is good content.

    I just subscribed to this new publication (It's free) for small businesses, called Small Business Trends. From the blurb and the cover, it looks like this will cover all kinds of issues important to small business owners and sole entrepreneurs, so I thought I'd share it.

    Here's the info

    Subscribe to the newly launched small business trends digital magazine.

    Planning is so important, so we decided to focus this month’s issue on planning at all levels in your business. We cover strategic planning with a piece from Clate Mask, co-founder and CEO of Infusionsoft Marketing Automation Software. If you’ve ever wondered whether strategic planning is necessary, you’ll be convinced of its value after reading Clate’s take.

    Next up we explain why you need a “living, breathing” business plan—and what it is. And if your business has hit a wall, check out the advice for how to regroup and revamp your approach from Nellie Akalp, founder of Corpnet.com.

    Every successful business should allocate time for tax planning. Read how to maximize deductions to improve profits. If you are just starting a business, don’t miss our 30-Point Startup Checklist of important planning steps not to overlook.

    Finally, don’t forget to plan for personal productivity. Our list of 25 Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows 10 is sure to save time that could be put to more strategic and critical priorities.

    Free in Kindle format, the Little Big Small Business Book. It's been a while since I featured some of the free Kindle titles available. Keep in mind that you don't have to have a physical Kindle device since there's free reader software for virtually any platform. It's free as of this writing, but these offers often are for a short time only.

    Also, make sure to visit my new Small Business Resource Center. The theme is how David can complete with the big Goliaths in business. http://work911.com/smallbiz

    Thanks for feedback. I just tried to download and they want WAY more than email. :(

    #1 Forgot to mention that it's not a bad idea to set up a free email address at gmail, yahoo or your choice of email providers JUST to use for situations where you need to supply an email address but aren't sure how it might be used. I don't bother for the reasons I stated previously, @Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS but it's a good practice. If you ever want to stop using that address because it becomes clogged, you can delete it, and it separates out the emails you are less interested in from those that you really have to see.

    #1 Yes, @Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS That's true. I guess in a sense there's no such thing as a free lunch. Personally, it doesn't bother me. I have only rarely found that giving out my address, or subscribing to a newsletter has been honorous, and laws demand that one can unsubscribe at any time.

    I get so much junk email already that I don't care, so I sometimes forget that others might be more protective. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Thanks so much for sharing, Robert!

    I love these, but do note that they usually require your e-mail, as that is golden to them.

    Of special interest to women, this is a book excerpt.

    Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

    Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to “lean in.” Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.
