“We are in an age of unprecedented change, it’s a ‘revolutionary’ time to be alive! The question we need to be asking ourselves is - ‘Am I leading that change?’ I believe we all have a choice to step up into personal, professional and social leadership. We have a choice to become agents for change, amplifiers, thought leaders to upgrade our thinking and lead our very own revolutions.”

Complimentary Download | White Paper: Who's got your back? 

This month's white paper, Who's got your back?, was written by Keith Ferrazzi.
Why you need the "Lifeline Relationships" that create success and won't let you fail.

“Behind every great leader, at the base of every great tale of success, you will find an indispensable circle of trusted advisors, mentors, and colleagues. These groups come in all forms and sizes and can be found at every level and in nearly all spheres of both professional and personal life, but what they all have in common is a unique kind of connection with each other that I’ve come to call lifeline relationships. These relationships are, quite literally, why some people succeed far more than others.

There’s a good chance that you’ve already experienced the power and potential of lifeline relationships at some point in your life. Imagine some of the attributes of the best bosses you’ve ever had—the kind of boss who encourages you, who gives you space to grow, who appreciates your efforts, who doesn’t micromanage but guides your development with wisdom, and who handles your slip-ups with firmness, understanding, and candor. Or think back to that good friend or family member who dropped everything to be there for you at a critical juncture in your life and didn’t let you fail. Picture that associate you had at work who took a risk for you, and whose influence still touches you today. 

If you’ve ever had an important person or group of people in your life who’ve shepherded you in the right direction—even if you’ve had just a taste of it—you know what I mean.” 


Complimentary Download | White Paper: The Art of the Start

This month's Complimentary Download is the White Paper; The Art of the Start, written by Guy Kawasaki.

Guy says... The truth is that no one really knows if he/she is an entrepreneur until he/she becomes one — and sometimes not even then. There really is only one question you should ask yourself before starting any new venture: Do I want to make meaning?
Meaning is not about money, power, or prestige. Itʼs not even about creating a fun place to work.

Among the meanings of “meaning” are to 
  • Make the world a better place.Save & Close
  • Increase the quality of life.
  • Right a terrible wrong.
  • Prevent the end of something good.
Goals such as these are a tremendous advantage as you travel down the difficult path ahead.
If you answer this question in the negative, you may still be successful, but it will be harder to become so because making meaning is the most powerful motivator there is.

White Paper: Book Yourself Solid

White Paper

In anticipation of the upcoming Master Class with Michael Port, this month's gift is a chapter from Michael's book; Book Yourself Solid.

Book Yourself Solid, reveals why self-promotion is a critical factor to success, giving you a unique perspective that makes this guide much more than an ordinary "how to" manual for getting more clients and raising a business profile. In this chapter, Develop a Personal Brand, Michael explains why Personal branding is far more than just what you do or what your web site and business cards look like. It is you — uniquely you. It allows you to distinguish yourself from everyone else: what is unique about who you are, what you stand for, and what you do.

P.S. Come and join me, along with a small group of Thought Leaders, at a very special Master Class with Michael Port, where you will have the opportunity to be up close and personal with Michael. We simply cannot wait!
