I read Seth Goddins blog http://sethgodin.typepad.com/ most days and like it for 4 reasons.
- He challenges me to think about how I interact with my customers
- He uses normal language not business jargon
- He is a marketer with a proven track record
- He is a business owner and so am I
One of my goals this year is to expand my blog readership.
This is no easy task. What do you, as the reader want to read?
Most of my work involves helping people to have a decent crack at something. I speak and coach people about sales , leadership and presenting. These are very broad subjects.
What I'm most interested in is why do some people have more of a go than others?
There are rarely short cuts to success in life.
I just read Malcolm Gladwells latest offering, Outliers. He looks for patterns in successful people.
You wont be suprised to find out that he discovered:
The environment you grew up in; A degree of luck; and persistence are all key ingredients.
What motivates you to surf the net, read blogs, go to work etc?
Why are you so successful or for that matter unsuccessful?
