Synergized Quote of the Week
"I don't know how to measure success, but I do know how to measure contribution. It is how we contribute to grow forward, not about how we grow bigger or higher." - Ping Fu
SPECIAL QUOTE NOTE: I had the pleasure of hearing this quote from Ping Fu, Founder and CEO of GeoMagic, Inc., in person at the Women Executive's annual meeting in Charlotte, last week. Ping, her compelling life story and her approach to living and working is not only inspirational, incredible, and a true testimony of unstoppable tenacity and curiosity, she is at the forefront of bringing technology that has and will continue to change our lives forever. Stay tuned ... her story will on store book shelves soon through Penguin Press! And a special note of thanks to Ping for giving me permission to share this powerful quote.
Savvy Secret Tip of the Week
Want to be viewed as an expert in your field or on a particular topic of interest? An ideal way to present your expertise is to be a guest speaker for groups and organizations. When asked to speak as an expert, it is important to be one and leave your sales hat at the door. You are being invited to share insights, information and knowledge, not to peddle your wares. We all have been to speaker presentations where we felt jilted because we were being "pitched" to instead of being given nuggets of wisdom. The key is to leave them wanting more rather than heading for the door. If you show what you know, the business opportunities will come in droves. To learn more about other ways to be an Expert Resource, read Secret #39 in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order the book, CLICK HERE!
