How You Can Use Slow Times to Grow Your Business

August 26, 2010
Here's a good quote I found on one of the self employment blogs:

Slow times are natural for every business, it’s a fact.

But you probably have heard completely opposite statements in that regard, haven’t you? Well then, let me tell you one thing, without slow times your company would collapse really quickly.

Slow times give you a chance to step back and look at your business from a different perspective. Thanks to them you can finally focus on things you wouldn’t normally have time for. And I don’t mean your equipment maintenance or catching up with the bookkeeping. These things are important too but slow times give you the opportunity to look at how your business performs and fix whatever you feel isn’t right.

But what really interests me is business blogging, or blogging by companies, businesses. Blogging not for profit or to build a tribe, successful online business but to promote your actual company and build it’s reputation. 

I am still rather new to the idea of business blogging so I am happy that someone actually decided to write a series of posts explaining more in depth what it is. The first post is about 5 key benefits of business blogging. Check it out, it’s well worth it. 

Are you afraid of public speaking?

August 24, 2010
Public speaking is surrounded by myths. And all this nonsense that is said about it prevents many great people from entering this wonderful career. These are people with great ideas and views they could share and influence others. Yet, scared by all the public speaking myths they choose to do not even try. 

I am happy that somebody is now writing openly about it and tries to demystify those public speaking myths for good!

If you feel overwhelmed by your fears of public speaking, visit the public speaking handbook blog. There is some comforting information there.
