I’m finishing this email about an hour before I’m up up and away on a hot air balloon with my two daughters, brother and little nieces. This has been a surprise for quite some time, and the excitement is downright contagious. I’ve never been on a hot air balloon, so I’m a little nervous myself. It reminds me of the thrill of my first ride on Space Mountain!
This summer, I’ve been writing frequently and working with clients to help them get noticed, and recognized for their expert status. This of course helps expand their brand and increase revenue opportunities. Once you set your course, it’s funny how people show up to help you along the way!
Contributing to blogs and guest posting is also another way to get attention in a crowded marketplace. Here’s a post that was just released on Carol Roth’s website and @Business Unplugged on “Tips to Land Speaking Engagements.” Speaking is one of the top, free ways to get recognized for your expertise. If you’re feeling wobbly, check out your local Toastmaster’s group, to learn tricks of the trade.
