Good fortune comes in meeting many talented professionals by participating in groups, as promotion creates good will and community cheer. But there needs to be an explicit purpose and be well-matched to your core principles and values for conducting business.

Good rules for engagement include first striving to get to know one another to help one another grow.  This leads to improved advice and appropriate collaborative promotion.


Who do you know has a special gift, product, or service perfect for giving this holiday season and ongoing through the year?  Is it time to highlight it in a blog, article, book, radio show, or social media?  What if someone else did this for you; would it make you happy?  Take the lead on this gesture and experience the reward.

Job Seekers

Although highlighting others is not a direct route to securing a new job, the act highlights that you are a team player.  In particular, being seen actively promoting others will serve to build a solid personal brand.


This season, American Express did something very special.  They chose to promote small businesses for a nominal fee actively.  This concept should be considered throughout the year, as your return will be increased loyalty from many.

Fortune 100

Due to my social media activity and sales knowledge, Microsoft asked that I contribute to 3 of their e-books.  The first, Always be Closing, was recently published and contained a broad perspective for conducting business, written to help their current and prospective clients and those educating themselves through the collaborative effort.

Sales Group

Kelly Riggs, Business Locker Room, asked members of our online group to contribute their best sales advice in his new e-book, One Piece of Advice.  It is beautifully presented on several levels; easy to read, beautiful graphic design, and excellent sales advice.  This book is a true gift in the form of a free e-book for all to take advantage of top sales knowledge.

Media Connection

Upon hearing my unusual story as her radio show guest, Charlotte Howard, a 5-time best-selling author, asked that I contribute the story to her upcoming anthology of like-minded authors.  Success in Beauty: the secrets to Happiness and Fulfillment is not just for the beauty industry, but for everyone to read, learn and implement how to change their mindset to perceiving disaster as good fortune.  Every single story and of various kinds spoke to the fact that facing steep hurdles made them better people, and they are grateful for the disaster they incurred.  This book also became an instant bestseller to Howard’s and the contributing authors’ names.

One to One plus Corporate

An offer by Miles Austin,, to promote the LinkedIn free e-book plus paid course was made, and I accepted due to knowing the material is highly beneficial.  For companies considering the education for their teams, please contact me for negotiated terms.
