Letter from the editor
Another season is moving along rapidly. It has been an enriching summer visiting with family and friends, participating in meaningful conferences, and keeping busy in my business. I’m excited to report that my third book just became available in a digital format and interested readers can find it on major book sites or on my publisher’s website: www.xlibris.com: “BUILDING BLOCKS TO SUCCESS: Does the Image of Your Business Attract Customers and Motivate Employees?”
In this newsletter, I’ve reprinted an article written by Rick Frishman called "Ten Clowns Don't Make A Circus" and wrote an article on "Social Networking: Do I Have Time?" I hope these will assist you in learning more for your business, church, or organization.
As a contributor to the book “Success Simplified”, I tell people what I’ve found to help me be more successful in life and what I think “success” really means. Please contact me about purchasing a copy of this book. It is available on major websites, but if you purchase one from me, it will have my photo on the cover with other successful speakers. It is available on my shopping cart on my website as well… very exciting!
In the next couple months, my travel includes: Knoxville, TN; Boise, ID; Minneapolis, MN (twice); and Sioux Falls, SD. For discounted speaking fees, I try to coordinate events and trainings. Please let me know about events in these and other areas, since I’m constantly adding cities to my itinerary.
Enjoy the rest of the summer,
Ten Clowns Don't Make A Circus
Any business, like any circus, requires a certain amount of diversity. You need different people to fill different roles - lion tamers, trapeze artists, and human cannonballs - or the show just doesn’t work.
WHAT IT MEANS: Cars have different systems and subsystems that must all do their job for the car to work - and so do companies. Other people’s roles (and backgrounds, personalities, perspectives, etc.) are quite likely to vary from yours—and that’s a good thing. For one thing, the characteristics that might make a great sales rep might make a terrible financial analyst (and vice versa). Second, having a diversity of thought (and thinkers) can help formulate more carefully considered decisions. Just because someone disagrees with you does not make him or her wrong. It takes all kinds to build a successful business—all kinds of skills, all kinds of positions, and all kinds of people.
ACTION PLAN: Try to be more open the next time someone at work disagrees with you. Don’t take it personally. Focus on what is being said, not on who is saying it.
EVEN BETTER: Nobody in a company has a monopoly on good ideas. You can tap into the collective wisdom, creativity, and experience of your workgroup by maintaining an open pipeline for their ideas, suggestions, and feedback to proposed new projects and policies. As a wise colleague of mine often says, “If you want to think outside the box, sometimes you have to journey outside the box.”

Social Networking: Do I Have Time?
What thought comes to mind when you hear the words “social networking”? I think of time and managing it best. After much reading and visiting the various websites and what content there is, it seems like it would take hours every day to keep up. FaceBook, Twitter, mycity, Digg, Myspace, Flickr, Youtube, linkedin, Delicious, and Stumbleupon are just some sites you can check.
Here are some tips I’ve gleaned from others active on social networking sites.
