At “Be The Change” in Orlando I got in touch with several coaches beside listening to the fabulous Suzanne Evans. I bought Carrie Greene´s book “Because you ‘re worth it” and had a 45 minutes call with her last Saturday. I recorded it. That had VALUE for itself. By listening to the recorded conversation I found what I was looking for. Thank you Carrie – for the moment! Megha Rodriguez interact with me during the event by asking questions. Very straight forward. I learnt something in the dialogue about myself and I am thankful for this. I loved it. For those of you who are familiar with her work: She gave me the lion badge. I said immediately: You are the one I would like to write my next blog post about! Nobody interacted this way with me during the event…! She smiled. Next week I will start to work the 60-Day Signature Talk Challenge of Catherine Johns. I read her book “Show Up and Shine” and she covers with this course what I need most (at this moment): Get ready for the stage! I want to get my message out. The most important lesson for me at “Be The Change” : I have to fine-tune my message by talking with you in person, the experts. Thank you for interacting with me, Hell Yeah!!!
Last weekend I had the honor to listen and talk to the World Champion 1995 International Toastmaster Mark Brown at our local District 68 Toastmaster International event in New Orleans. He gave us two speeches. One in the morning about “leader ship” and one in the afternoon about “Storytelling”. He speaks a very easy understandable language. I almost understood any word he said. That was really great and gave me the confidence: I can do the same! I bought his little speech preparation course. Simple and straight forward…More about Mark
On mother´s day I always have a date with my mom at the phone when I am not around. Today she told me something about a concert in our church in Nordwalde. The best classical concert she ever heard in her life. In Nordwalde? That was a kind of surprising to me. Mothers day is Irma Thomas Day in New Orleans. Music is always in town. There is a meetup with her in Audubon Zoo two blocks away from us with the Soul Queen of New Orleans. It´s free for mother’s on mothers day… Doesn´t she really still looks great with her over 74 years? This type of happiness you can find in our town. This video was taken two weeks ago at the JazzFest.
Charlyn is launching her AppreneurSummit today! That´s the best way to introduce her. It´s all about apps. I love searching how people place themself on the internet. “Charlyn Keating” is a well placed personal branding search term. Great interview at the appmasters. Obviously she has a high knowledge “about” travelling , she is a writer and branded herself with her name as appreneur. Her biggest app challenge called “Where in Disney World” ? It´s about finding what you are searching for in Disney World. I signed up for her Summit which also included a private facebook group. She posted today she was mainly told “Resilience” is the key to success. So let´s watch this… There is still a great chance to position an app in this market space whoever could identify with this search term. I will look forward to placements in this direction…And the best thing: she is from New Orleans. Means she knows how people move in this town even she lives next to Disney World. I am already in touch with her for a few weeks and guess what: I will meet up with her at the end of May in the Orlando area.
Tomorrow I have my first coaching call with Cathi Harley of Suzanne Evans Coaching. I am already excited what suggestions she will offer me in our short conversation. Cathi is not internet savvy but obviously has great speaking skills. She build her sales expertise over years in the US cooperate world of large tech entities before she joined Suzanne. The last few weeks were a little bit of a roller coaster for me because I joined this 100 days challenge of sales training from Suzanne Evans Coaching and started to rethink almost everything what I planned for Apps Strategy LLC for 2015.
If you do not have a coach yet, think about it! You should! HERE WE GO
Nikki send in her current email such a great and simple advise… I just want share it with you.
Isn´t that a great video marketing tip?
First of all: Brent has a great sense of humor! When I told him I would like to write about him this week he said: “Go ahead, write about me even it´s not good about me!” He was asked to talk at this year´s NOEW 2015 event to talk about strategic behavior. That´s also my metier. Later I met him again in the well-organized lounge. I got the idea to dive deeper in his life because I found myself this week in the role of “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory – “The Candy Man Can” song role. Ti Martin of Commander´s Palace, Joel Dondis of SUCRE and 90 other participants loved my ChocoCocoCrunches at the NOEW 2015. In exchange I asked to download my PopUpNola App.
Brent is all about music. “He is one of the “What if´s guys” of the first launch videos of the Idea Village. A lot What if´s became reality in the meantime because of BOLD decisions. NOEW became a new home for me 2015. I feel like I want to become a part of it. The development was tremendous within the last three events 2013, 2014 and 2015. I guess we are ready to go international now!
Brent founded his company Audiosocket and started to have great success with his product LicenseID. He gave a detailed interview for white space tv.
He loves his grandma´s red beans and rice. I guess I will invite him soon to try out my red beans and rice version:–)))
The Keyword APPS got search results of around 45 Mio hits today according to the Google Keyword Tool. So what´s APPS worth these days? That´s around the half of BUSINESS clicks. Last week I heard about Marc Ostrofsky. He became famous for his unbelievable Domain deals. A Domain like Business.com which was originally bought for 7 bucks he bought for 120.000 $ but was fortunate enough to cash in 7.5 Million $. And this Internet property is worth a three figures Million $ amount in these days. This business is called dealing with “Generic Domains.” Simply said the word you and me would type in the search engine to find what we are looking for. If you are interested in this kind of business check out Marc Ostrofsky´s book called: Get Rich Click. Great interview with him on DomainSherpa. That was 06.2012 when I wrote this blog post and never published it…
Today we definitely measure differently. The whole social media component is missing in this post above… but it is still true what Marc said: “Domain names and websites are internet Real Estate.” The Web Domain Name Sales Industry is a 3 billion $ industry announced by IBISWORLD in 2013. Even today sales are enormous: Top 250 and Wikipedia says it all. In fact all these Domains are .COM Domains….Anybody who builds a BRAND should still make sure to own the name.
