Making a whole lot of money would cause many of us to smile brighter than a smilie face. That’s why we market our best talents and skills hoping that some organization or person is willing to pay big for what we have to offer.
Listening to multi-millionaire, Greg Habstritt of Simply Wealth Inc., I was forced to ask myself, are the areas in which I am working the ones that will enable me to build wealth? For which skill area am I seen as an automatic go-to person, someone who people trust and come to for assistance?
I seem to be trusted by many as a go-to person for technology-based learning and information services. This doesn’t mean I am the best at it, but it is where my passion lies, where I am most creative, and trusted. What about you? Which area do you love, and are you seen as the automatic go-to person? Identify this, and we find our best chance for big money.
I believe one reason why people tend to come to me for technology-based learning and information assistance is that I spend mega hours keeping up-to-date with the latest learning and development resources on the web. I don’t think any of us can say we are half-decent at anything, without keeping up-to-date with the explosion of brilliant information and creative ideas, that’s constantly populating the internet. As said by Abraham Lincoln:
“I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”
My passion is to dig through various internet data mining sites to find knowledge and creative resources that we need to develop our minds, and grow in our big money skill areas. For me, there is no sense having this weird ability and love, if I am not willing to develop it, and share it. So from now on, I will be posting more information about some worthwhile sites and resources for developing ourselves. Here are a few to start.
- Check out Greg Habstritt’s Authority Formula blueprint. He removed the excellent free videos and publications, which he was using to market his rather costly but seemingly worthwhile, Authority Formula, training program. However, I downloaded the aforementioned publication earlier. It is a useful resource for taking a look at developing ourselves as trusted authorities that commands a lot of money for what we do.
- Foursquare is a social networking application targeted at the mobile market. It ranks number 15 on Fast Company’s list of the world’s most innovative companies 2011. It uses GPS technology to help users check into places, meet up with friends and discover new places in a particular city. It is growing by leaps and bounds. I would love anyone who is using it to share their experience.
- Slideshare is another increasingly popular service. Not only is it a great sight for posting slide presentations, a quick search through postings can generate some great learning resources in popular areas, such as social media.
- The Social Media for Business presentation by PresentationAdvisors is great for those who want to understand the power of social media to transform their business. This subject is critical to those who are not yet using social media, or need to know how to effectively use it to generate results, in business.
Each week, I will share some of which I believe are among the most useful, educational and informative resources on the net. I also invite you to share your discoveries – for it is our collaboration that truly grows us and keeps us at the cutting edge of information.
