Social media is hurting your business

I think it's pretty obvious that you shouldn't do something if you can't measure it and if you don't understand how to do it well. But that's not the same as saying you shouldn't do it at all. This whole blog post would have been better if it laid out some rationales as to why you "should" leverage social media and not just why you "shouldn't." Because otherwise I'm inclined to believe this is more of just a rant - by someone who doesn't know how to use social to sell / market. As opposed to someone who knows when to use it and when not to. Because it can be used to effectively drive a sales cycle forward. I'm living proof. smile By Sean Campbell on 2014 12 09

Changing careers after 50

Gale, enjoyed your article and now I know 'what I am'....an encore entrepreneur. I also agree with Gary (as I'm coming from executive sales career of 20 years and now a sales development consultant) that many new business owners need to learn how to sell. Whether that is through coaching, training or gaining strategic deal support, it's usually a gap that needs to be filled. By Sandra Anderson on 2014 12 09

Changing careers after 50

Gale, good article. If I may, one more point I would add to your list is, "do I know how to sell what it is my new business will offer?" I've seen too many new business's fail because of this last point. ' have trained many new business owners that might have a much better, if not the best new mouse trap, however they do not know how to sell it and therefore needed to learn. Being a sales coach, won't surprise you I add that to the list. ha! By gary harvey on 2014 12 09

Earning my wings

Many years ago I delivered some Meals on Wheels food packets for an afternoon. I was assisting an old hand at the process. After we left the apartment of an old women who had pet cats, but couldn't clean up after them, my companion looked at me and said "you know, you have no cares in your life - right". To this day when my problems mount I think about the sad old lady and thank my lucky stars. By Oscar on 2014 12 09

Top five personnel mistakes ...

I agree Daniel - what most employers don't realize is that the is a 3 to 12 times difference in productivity of employees - and start-up often make the mistake of hiring too many people when selecting a few high performing employees would save thousands of dollars. Interviewing is not an intuitive process and way too many leaders think they will know it when they see it and they make those pesky hiring mistakes. By Stephen Moulton on 2014 12 05

Social media is hurting your business
