5 Actionable Personal Branding Tips for Social Media Many of the social media tips we share—the ways to create a marketing plan from scratch, how to get more followers, how to get more clicks—often focus on the small business side of social media marketing. Now imagine achieving social media success when the brand you’re trying to promote is you. Personal branding on social media is a topic we’d love to dive into a bit deeper, starting with this overview of tips and strategies. I’m grateful to have found a number of useful tips on how building a personal brand can be made easier with social media. Here’s how to get started.
Natural Selection has Rewarded those who Contribute to the Community with Long Life New research supports a thesis that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside – and that feeling itself is good for our health and longevity. People who seek gratification through personal aggrandizement and accumulation of wealth may achieve a kind of hedonistic satisfaction, but this leads to negative health consequences and shorter life span. Meanwhile, people who seek fulfillment through service, dedication to cooperative efforts and shared values tend to have better health and longer lives. Open Innovation's Next Challenge: Itself - John Hagel III and John Seely Brown by John Hagel III, John Seely Brown and Lang Davison | 10:43 AM February 4, 2010 Let’s face it. Executives are under a lot of pressure to follow the latest management trends. Columbia business school professor Eric Abrahamson, who has written about the diffusion of managerial innovations, calls this the “norm of progressivity”: the expectation that you either follow the latest management innovations — even if they later prove misguided — or suffer a diminished reputation among your peers, the press, and your shareholders. Thus it’s little surprise that nearly every company now has some sort of experiment or program relating to open innovation. Open innovation means reaching out to take advantage of talent beyond the firm (or responding to such outreach opportunities).
Electronic portfolio An electronic portfolio (also known as an eportfolio, e-portfolio, digital portfolio, or online portfolio) is a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks.

How To Follow Your Dreams When You Haven't Quite Figured Out What They Are I, personally, am tired of people giving advice like, "just follow your passion," or "do what you love and the money will come." If you’re one of the (very few) millennials out there who knows exactly what you want to do with your life, and you’re taking conscious, consistent steps toward it, then by all means continue to follow your passion! But most of us aren’t in that boat. If you’re like the majority of millennials, you’re still struggling to uncover what it is that you’re actually passionate about. So what’s intended as an inspirational phrase turns into one more thing to stress about and judge yourself for.
Forty years until we get "personal nanofactories"? Forty years ago the historian & broadcaster James Burke predicted the widespread use of personal computers, collection and storage of sensitive information and a political struggle against the introduction of identity cards. With astounding accuracy, Burke forecasted the omniscience of technology in homes, schools and businesses. On Friday's Radio 4 PM programme, he was asked once again to speculate as to what the future might hold.
Blogging Innovation » Why Open Innovation is Not for Small Companies It is difficult to find good cases on how smaller companies have engaged with open innovation. It is also difficult to give strong advice on how such companies should engage with open innovation. I have reflected much on this and I am approaching a conclusion that is slightly provocative: Open innovation is for big companies; not small companies.

Use Code MTLOVESDESIGN for 20% off The Authentic Person's Guide To Self-Branding If you use the Internet, you have a brand. Whether you like it or not, people are Googling you and their impression of you is shaped by the content they find: your LinkedIn profile, your Facebook page, your public tweets, that random op-ed you wrote for your college paper. And yet many people are uncomfortable with the idea of cultivating a personal brand. "When people think of self-branding, they immediately think of people in the entertainment industry who are in the business of shameless self-promotion," says Selena Soo, founder of S2 Groupe, a personal branding consultancy. "Celebrities can come across as arrogant, egotistical, or flamboyant, and people don’t want to be like that." But Soo insists that managing your public persona won't make an over-the-top Donald Trump or Kim Kardashian out of you.
