Times have changed. We can look back at the last year and learn.
As a solo entrepreneur, home office biz pro, a two-person company or a firm adding staff to meet new demands, you and everyone around you is looking for the answer to this question, “Where will we be in the future?”
Your leadership, vision and dream provide the answer. However, in the flurry of day to day activity, it’s sometimes difficult to take the time to plan ahead. This is where a SCORE mentor can really help.
Mentoring & Brainstorming Help Answer Big Questions
Add a SCORE mentor to your team as a free and confidential advisor. 1) Meet for a brainstorming session to talk about your dreams for the business. 2)Then, meet a second time to talk about the dreams that have the best chance for market success. 3) Finally, meet with your mentor to put those ideas down in a one page plan of where your business is heading next. Tomorrow planning is doable.
A mentor can guide you through the process, so you can define your big success horizon.
If you’re on Twitter to network or promote your business, you want to be re-tweeted. You want others to share your insight, link or photo. You want your tweets to be viral.
Maybe you are new to Twitter terminology. If so, to “re-tweet” means to have someone else forward your tweet, or update, to their followers. (A “tweet” is merely a short status update on Twitter.) The shorthand for a re-tweet is “RT,” as in this sample Twitter update from a friend who forwards my tweet to their followers:
“RT @pcorwin: 5 good sites on managing online communities and social networks. http://bit.ly/RHr8o”
In the video, Rand also puts Twitter into the context of your search engine optimization (SEO) strategies.
