Greetings folks! Brendon Burchard is at it again, and I’m so incredibly excited! I don’t normally promote these kinds of trainings or endorse other people’s products or trainings, but Brendon stands out!
Even if you just watch his free videos or pick up his book, The Millionaire Messenger, you’re going to think you’ve gotten thousands of dollars worth of valuable training on how to market yourself as an author, speaker, seminar leader, coach, or product developer. I’ve been learning from Brendon for almost a year now, and his training makes all the difference to me!

I’m so thrilled for one of my clients – Leigh Ann Phillips!
She was featured on television on the show New Mexico Style at KASA Fox 2 recently where she got to talk about what she does (quite thoroughly I must add!), and even gave a demo on the show!
I’m a firm believer that video is now the medium that helps us show up more fully, translating into spreading our message even further! When you have a passion, it’s definitely the way to go!
Here is Leigh Ann Phillips, giving a demonstration of Sound Healing and the Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls she takes with her on her many travels! Enjoy!Read More or Comment
I’ve been very active lately in the realms of Facebook and Twitter, even though I’ve not posted on my business blog since December. I took an experimental departure from the blog to think about a very controversial question:
In business, should you blog or tweet about your personal life, passions, politics, or deeper belief systems?
Throughout the last 3 months, I’ve been logging my workouts with MapMyRide.com. I shared a three-part blog series on one of my other sites on my 2-year anniversary of becoming Car-Free. Finally, more recently, I’ve been reading and posting a lot of information on Facebook and Twitter about the protests in Madison, WI at the capitol building (I even traveled to Madison in the early stages of the protest to stand with others in solidarity).Read More or Comment
A few weeks ago, I happened upon Kickstarter.com, when my friend, Ellen Evret Hopman, sent a message that she was wanting to raise money to visit Ireland for inspiration for her next book. Ellen Evret Hopman is an award winning author who has written both fiction and non-fiction books on the topics of Druidry, Celtic Lore and Spirituality, and Herbalism. So naturally I was interested in helping to support her next book project!
Kickstarter is an online site for collecting supporters or pledges to fund any creative project or endeavor. Unlike other fundraising sites, Kickstarter is an “all or nothing” pledging system. For example, if you set a goal of $4000 to fund your project fully, then ask others to support your idea and go to Kickstarter to pledge, only when your total goal of $4000 is reached by pledges will they charge the credit cards of those who pledge. If you don’t reach your goal by 90 days, all pledges are cancelled.
Some of the other great features of Kickstarter are the ability to designate “rewards” for certain levels of pledges, should your project be funded. In Ellen’s case, if you pledge over $3, she will send a postcard to you from Ireland while on her journey. Pledge $50, and if the project is funded, she will send you an autographed copy of the book she’s completing! These are great incentives for inspiring giving, as they keep those who pledge “in the process” and further inspired!
I’m also astounded by the very thorough social media integration they have put in place. You can share a Kickstarter project on Facebook, via Email, via Twitter, and even place a widget on your website to attract more supporters (like what I’ve done in this post for Ellen!).
So, if you have a great idea for your next creative project, but need some funding to get you going, check out Kickstarter and give it a try. In 90 days, you could be well on your way!Read More or Comment
This post may seem like complete “fan service” to Armin Van Buuren, the Number ONE Trance DJ in the world for the FOURTH year in a row – but I wanted to share with you all just how wonderfully he uses social media. As well as feeling very uplifted by his music, I’ve learned a lot from him!
First, here’s his latest video that he announced via Twitter (@arminvanbuuren) to his over 275,000 followers on Thanksgiving Day:Read More or Comment
I have to share a little milestone for me and the HolisticGeek.com Website. In the month of October, I saw the hits to my site MORE THAN DOUBLE, and my unique visitors increase by nearly 30%. And since then, my daily unique visitors are surpassing my October average!
I have to credit Angie Glotzback, Social Media Virtual Assistant first for giving me a huge spark in her training and encouragement surrounding Twitter. Her style of teaching and consulting was so light and fun, that it motivated me to get over my resistance and fear of using Twitter within my blog.
Of course, I’ve hence learned that fear and resistance don’t bring a website more hits and visitors. Courage and ACTION bring in more visitors!
So what did I do in addition to Angie’s “nudge” into social media?Read More or Comment
