Thou Shall Not Slander
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2010
In the last few months, I have spotted no fewer than three examples of one person in our social networking community slandering another person in our social networking community.

I am not going to tell you who they are because A) I will not stoop to their level and B) that would send even...

by Joshua Waldman - Jan, 2010
Social media can be a real time sink. There is no doubt. And with out a strategy, the danger of spending hours online and getting nothing accomplished is very real. So in response to this apparent need of saving people time online, 'Social Media Aggregation' services were invented. These services allow you to simply post your update once, and 40 of your social media sites get the update simultaneously. Seems like a good...

No Magic Bullet for Sales
by Barbara Giamanco - Jan, 2010
2009 will be a year remembered for many things. Most of them non too positive. Financial meltdowns, rampant greed, thousands put out of work. Fear, negativity, anger and often complete disrespect for other human beings showed up everywhere. For entrepreneurs, it proved tough just trying to make it through, while at the same time companies beat them down on price and strung out the process of paying their bills to boot. Sales o...

Top Three Ways to Find a Job in 2010
by Kevin Donlin - Dec, 2009
As 2009 draws to a close, most job seekers can only say, “Good riddance.” According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average job search as of November 2009 took 28.5 weeks -- more than 7 months. That’s the longest since record keeping began in 1948. But there is good news: People are still finding jobs, often faster than average. How are they doing it? From what I can see, talking to and counseling hundreds...

That's the dirty secret of science. - Kevin Dunbar, Director of the Laboratory For Complex Thinking and Reasonsing, University of Toronto, Scarborough I began using Twitter in late September of this year, largely as an experiment.

Trust Your Strategy, Not LinkedIn
by Joshua Waldman - Dec, 2009
LinkedIn is a very powerful SUV. I get in it for a road-trip. I turn it on, take it to the car wash. Then I realized that I have no idea where I want to go.

In the 1970s, British economist E.F.Schumacher wrote that the...
Five Ways to Beat the Ugly Networking Stigma
by Kris Parfitt - Dec, 2009
“My intention is to meet five people at this function who I really connect with and that two of them eventually become clients.” My friend was impressed while somewhat doubtful of my declaration. My actual success that night was that I met ten people with whom I connected, but I didn’t find the opening to give all of them my business card. It’s not that I’m shy – by nature I’m quite the extrovert. But I have a stigma about ne...
The Art of Working and Reworking Your Network
by John Crant - Dec, 2009
Why is it so difficult for people to turn to network contacts for help on the second or third time? The simple answer is guilt. We all have that nagging voice in our heads that our call is not of interest, and is really a nuisance, to those in our network that we may call more than once asking for help.
