For those of you not a part of our pre-launch Insider’s Team, you can still join us and get early access at a nicely discounted price, plus the special report on The 7 Pillars of Connecting with Anyone. Given the upcoming launch, I wanted to share some content from one of our modules. Enjoy! Habits Create Results.

11 Simple Ways to Create Genuine Connections with the People Who Make Failure Impossible ‘You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.’ ~Jim Rohn Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Scott Dinsmore of Live Your Legend.

Over the past couple years in creating How to Connect with Anyone, I’ve surveyed, interacted with and interviewed over 10,800 people on this very topic. The responses were terrifying… We know how important it is to connect with the right people. We know how many things could be possible if we changed our surroundings. Yet so few of us know how to tackle it. So we do nothing. The reason this happened was simple … 1. 2.

Project Big Step to connect county's unemployed with skilled construction jobs Dane County Executive Joe Parisi announced a new project Monday that aims to increase local employment by connecting residents with construction jobs. Parisi announced Project Big Step during a press conference, saying the county is in the midst of a skilled labor shortage. He said the program will be a partnership between the building trades, contractors, labor unions, Madison Area Technical College and community organizations such as the Urban League of Greater Madison. The Big Step program will assess upcoming construction projects and to analyze what skills trade workers and laborers may need to complete a certain job, Parisi said. He said this project will then feed people into apprenticeship programs so there will be training to match the description of the jobs most needed. The challenge will be matching the demand for skilled labor with the people that are still looking for work, Parisi said. The statement said officials plan to build and implement the program in the coming months.

Do exciting new things together . Laugh . Keep ’em guessing . Make love. Of course, love is a mystery, but on some level, everyone seems to appreciate its biochemical basis.

DART’s online meeting vids, courtesy of citizen media guys | Dallas Morning News Follow @rodgermjones We published an editorial Sunday taking the DART board to task for being behind the times for not webcasting or televising meetings. A billion-dollar agency should do better and follow the example set by member cities, was our reasoning. If you’re a YouTube addict, you may already have stumbled across remnants of DART board meetings that have been viddied and posted there. Have a watch on the YouTube posted above. I called the Two Hats number and reached one William Dockeray. He said what initially attracted them to DART meetings this year was the flap over LGBT benefits, and their interest took off from there. Two Hats also has videoed KNON radio shows and events around town. “It keeps me from roaming the streets,” said Dockeray. Salute to these citizen journalists. DART can and should change that.

F.O.R.M stands for Family, Occupation, Recreation and Money. Let’s break down the F.O.R.M. acronym, shall we? F-amily: Do you have kids? The beauty of F.O.R.M. is that it can be adapted to your needs because you can change what it stands for. In fact, you could change any of the 4 topic areas. You should be able to have a great initial conversation around these 4 questions — and, of course, these same questions can be revisited again in the future to form the basis of future conversations.
