Four Powerful Ways Companies & Freelancers Can Effectively Work Together [For Hubspot]

On May 17 2017, I spoke at the Atlanta Hubspot User Group on how companies and freelancers can work well together. I dove into four areas of insight that help empower both freelancers and companies to have a sweet spot working relationship. If you're interested in the topic, you can check out my follow-up blog post here diving into the topics I discussed at the event.

When Building Your Business, Why & How You Build It Matter [for Harpoon]

When Building Your Business, Why & How You Build It Matter [for Harpoon]

Earlier this year, as a result of my Quora question answering, I was connected to the co-founder of Harpoon (affiliate link). He saw my freelancing answers on Quora and asked to get listed on the Path Of The Freelancer toolbox page. I did add their financial management software to the directory, but our relationship didn't end there.

Eventually, I got to know him, his company and his software further and the more I learned, the more enticed I was towards what they were doing. Ironically, it felt in many ways like they designed their software after reading my book, but neither of us had heard of each other. It was a happy coincidence of alignment and as a result, I switched to using Harpoon for my freelancing business. They invited me to write an article on their blog, so here it is.

In Six Years, You’ll Be More Mature — What If You Could Be That Person Today?

In Six Years, You’ll Be More Mature — What If You Could Be That Person Today?

This post is part 2 of My Leaders Lyceum Experience blog series. I'm writing in exchange for the opportunity to go through the multi-corporate program.

Well, maybe ‘today’ is a bit ambitious, but realistically, what if you could experience six years worth of personal growth in just six months? That’s the promise of a leadership program based in development theory here in Atlanta Georgia.

As I mentioned in my previous article, I’m getting to go through the Leaders Lyceum’s multi-corporate personal development program in exchange for sharing my experience along the way. The program consists of five full-day sessions over the course of six months with cross-mentoring group calls every two weeks during the program.

Three Ways to Boost your Sales Effectiveness

Three Ways to Boost your Sales Effectiveness [For PipelineDeals]

Early in the Noodlehead Marketing journey, I needed a tool to help me manage my contacts and sales pipeline. Originally I ended up using the simple CRM, Highrise. After awhile I needed a CRM that offered more functionality and reporting and eventually found the wonderful tool PipelineDeals (Affiliate Link).

Up until we shut down the company, this was the tool we used to help us organize and manage our sales pipeline and this partner was a perfect fit. Each time, they'd roll out updates and improvements they'd be right in line with what we needed. It was neat to work alongside a company which shared similiar values and approaches to the way we work. In addition to using their tool, I interacted with their team often, provided video testimonials and became a regular ambassador for their brand to those I met here in Atlanta.

In the last several months, I've been reaching out to others to help create exposure for Path Of The Freelancer. It was a no brainer for me to reach out to my friends at PipelineDeals and ask them if I could write a guest blog post. They accepted the request and after working out the details, the blog post about how to effectively boost sales effectiveness is now live. If you're in sales it's a insightful read. If not, share it with someone you know who is in sales.

How My Company Getting Fired Got Me Into This Leadership Effectiveness Growth Program

This post is part 1 of My Leaders Lyceum Experience blog series. I'm writing in exchange for the opportunity to go through the multi-corporate program.

Mentoring is at the Heart of Entrepreneurship

Mentoring is at the Heart of Entrepreneurship [For StartupNation]

I was recently connected and invited to compose an article for StartupNation. What is it?

"StartupNation has inspired, educated and consistently attracted entrepreneurs and small business owners from Main Street America who want to be their own bosses and live the American Dream."

As I thought about what I wanted to share with startup business owners, leaders and team members the eighth and final achievement from Path Of The Freelancer came to mind. We Share What We've Mastered. There are many who have shared their life by teaching and mentoring me. In response to those who have given so much to me, I've turned around and done the same for others. This process is an important and meaningful one. 

In my guest post, I share how Mentoring is at the Heart of Entrepreneurship. I dive into the four stages of teaching, how these stages apply to our business, and specific action items we can take to move the next generation forward. Check it out at the link below.

Interview With The Joomla Transition Team

Interview With The Joomla Transition Team [for Joomla]

One of my service offerings is building semi-custom Joomla websites. Joomla is my preferred open-source CMS platform, and I've been using it almost since its inception (2005). To get more involved in the Joomla community as well as moving outside my own bubble, I volunteered to contribute to the Joomla magazine. As a result, I was placed in charge of interviewing the team of people who were transitioning the Joomla organization to new leadership.
