Episode 558 – Your Mindset Matters – Posting Positive Messages Helps

Last week on social media (Facebook) I posted this quote… “If we view ourselves as besieged victims who need to go into hiding, then we cultivate fear and hoarding.

Episode 488 – How To Use A Magic Mirror To Talk To And With Your Perfect Customers?

When I was a kid… I remember getting excited every day for a program on TV. You may (or may not be ) old enough to remember a kids TV show called “Romper Room”. In this show, they taught life lessons and today I want to share how that has affected my ideas around content marketing today.

She would say… “I can see Cathy and Jesse and Julie and Jimmy and Kelly and Billie and Bobby and Jenny and Mark” and so on. I would watch every day hoping she would say “I see Brian!”

Have you noticed that social media is becoming more and more divisive lately? Something as simple and fictional as a mermaid is causing people lose their minds, get in fights, and spew hate, vitriol, and disdain.

I have been trying to be more positive on social media, posting fun stuff, positive quotes, and real life stories of overcoming life’s obstacles. The amount of engagement has been outstanding and encouraging, and people love to share and be engaged and conversational around positive topics.

In this podcast I am going to lay out the Seven Deadly Sins of social media posting, and what I consider to be the antithesis to each

Episode 480 – Are You Building A Cult Or Culture On Social Media?

I have found that working for a company forces you to conform to the corporate culture… So does that make it a cult or a culture? Not all cults are bad, nor all cultures good.

People join cults not because people are crazy, but because they have two kinds of wishes.  They want a meaningful life, or they want to be taken care of. A social culture is an organized way of life which is based on a common tradition and conditioned by a common environment.

There are some key difference though?
