THE LAW OF COUNTABILITY
The ‘Law Of Countability’ as described by John Maxwell, is a critical one in building teams and in effective teamwork. This is especially crucial when the stakes are high.
People working towards a common goal, depend on the input and execution of tasks by each other. In fact tasks and accomplishment hinge on each other completing theirs. So the ‘Law Of Countability’ is not only important, but it ultimately determines the altitude a team will get… Continue

The concept of Social Bookmarking developed from the idea that regular Internet users would automatically bookmark their favorite websites on their own PC as a way of making sure that they kept all their favorites in the same place.
But, what could they do when they were not at their own PC? How were they to find or access their favorite websites then?
Here’s Wikipedia’s version of what is bookmarking:
“Social bookmarking is a way for Internet users to store,… Continue

My friends. The winds of change are upon us. A dawn of a new era. There is a new face in the American Presidential history books. A day most never thought they would see in their lifetime. A day that transcends color, race and creed
Let us embrace that change and use the momentum of this day to move ourselves to greatness...let us not focus on race, color and creed, for that is not what will be remembered. It is this day that will be remembered (and I'm not that hot on politics, in… Continue

The answer to that is a resounding NO!
I am going to switch the tables around a little. How many of you belong to networks where on a daily basis people fill up your inbox and your page and the forums with sales pitches - enough to make you choke? There is nothing more annoying than that.
Similarly, when you offer just your primary business to people, you have GREATLY reduced your chances of getting that person on board already - why? they are already on… Continue

A short extract from my Profit Report “The Leader In Me”
• Where do we start?
Where do we go to look for the leader within each of us? How does one reach down deep within and discover those leadership characteristics one possesses? Let alone bring to the surface! How are we going to get past the fear of going in search of these elements? What if we find none of value? Or worst yet, what if we find none? Does that mean we have nothing to offer?
• It is… Continue

My friends. Today is an incredible day.
A day filled with hope and promises of great things to come. You have a feeling deep inside that you are a winner, you have what it takes to win in business - but there is this nagging feeling of how, how do I do it? You feel somewhat handicapped, somewhat unsure of your direction...
The binary jungle of the internet is swarming with lures and traps
- waiting for the unsuspecting. With 1.6 billion people traversing the internet… Continue

We are fast approaching the week-end and I can already hear cries of jubilation from many! But I am on a mission…
This weekend, I am fine tuning a marketing experiment
(a call to greatness let's say!). I am working on devising a marketing plan/strategy for a group of 25. The company is just about to launch a new skin nutrition product. One product. Top of line, green product, in tune with the environment, more skin nutrition than skin care. So a robust… Continue

HAVE A PLAN B
We are into another fast moving week!
The news headlines are somewhat gloomy with all the economic pressures that people are dealing with. Today, I spoke with a 57 year old, wonderful woman. She was in tears describing to me her job of the past 20 years, from which she was just let go. I felt awful for her, not so much because she was laid off, but because she has no Plan B in place
. Her Plan A (job) is now in shambles, and without a Plan B working for… Continue

The days fly so fast. Time never stands still, does it?
We look back and assess our efforts of the past few days and some are pleased, many are ‘wishing’ they had done more. Wishing they had spent more time on their business, perhaps more time with the family, with friends, with the community, church…. There is something to be said for making each day count, because time ‘waits for no man’ they say. It moves on surely and methodically. In fact frighteningly so predictable… None of us can… Continue

It is indeed the perfect day to talk about LEADERSHIP
and LEADING WITH STRENGTH.
Leadership is one of my favorite topics of discussion because it encompasses so much and also can be interpreted in several different ways & styles.
A leader is someone who assumes that role. Sometimes we have leadership thrust upon us, but nevertheless, that role has to be accepted. How many times have you heard "be the leader people are looking for"? I am sure many times. But how… Continue
