    [Media] 8 Steps From A Control Freak To Effective Delegator
    For example, non-computer types should consider delegating their social media, website, and SEO activities. For a few, delegating comes easily, maybe too easy.

    [Media] Entrepreneurs Need to Brand Themselves First
    Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, connect your customers to one another, and you, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Starting a business is usually the result of a personal dream or need. Investors tell me that they invest in people, more than the idea. Customers buy from people, not from a company, at least at the startup stages. That’s why it’s important to build a personal brand, in parallel and before your business brand.

    In the social media age, it’s not hard to get some attention; to generate some controversy. A few months ago, President Obama gave a moving eulogy in honor of Beau Biden, the late son of Vice President Biden. Minutes 13-15 are emotional, as Obama’s voice cracks. And the words ring true. But to make your name mean something and to have it stand for dignity and integrity — that’s rare. It’s not something you can buy. There are no shortcuts.
