FOURTH OF JULY HISTORY

The Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. Actually, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated revising the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4th.

Business Learning 2017 – Reading Continues After College

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”  ― Henry Ford

The most common advice you hear from highly successful people is to read often, and always be learning more. Typically they are talking about reading for education, like business books, or biographies of other successful people. There is ample evidence of the power of knowledge.

You can learn so much reading about other great business minds, from how they think to their habits. The curious mind of entrepreneurs is a common theme in many good business books. How a business is built, to overcoming obstacles. In business if you are saddled with a problem, it is likely someone has previously experienced the same issue. If you read enough you can learn their process and apply it to your business. 

I often look do a search online for the books successful business people recommend. Most of the books are about business but there are always a few on each list that are about life. One thing I note is if a book keeps showing up on multiple lists then I probably should read it.

Examples of Books I keep seeing are:

The Problem with Online- Only Radio and Podcasting

Why do I need to do a radio show and even pay for it when I can do an online-only show or podcast for free? Because you get what you pay for. If it’s free, what is it worth? Zero. As the old saying goes, “There’s no free lunch!”. Radio gets audience, attracts sponsors and gets results. Online-only radio and podcasting does not. Here’s why.

Radio Tips

The Goal

 

Can you keep a blind man’s attention?

 

That is your challenge, and goal as a radio host. A successful talk radio show is both informative and entertaining. If you are informative only, you will be dry and boring. If you are entertaining only, a listener comes away with nothing new of value to them.

 

And that blind man or woman (which is every radio listener) can’t be informed or entertained by your charts or graphs or pictures. You’re on the radio! There are no visuals, other than what images you can paint in the listener’s mind with your voice. There’s nothing to hang on to, but your every word…So make every word count!

Peter Drucker said management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. Steve Jobs said innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. John Maxwell said a leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. John Quincy Adams said if your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. Theodore Roosevelt said the difference between a leader and a boss, the leader leads and the boss drives. Ken Blanchard said the key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority. So what are the characteristics of a leader?
