Social PR – The Fusion of PR And Social Media (Author of the chapter on “Client acquisition through social media for small business owners”)

Social media has had a profound influence on how businesses manage their public relations and engage customers online. In Social PR – The Fusion of PR And Social Media we have gathered the best minds in social media marketing to examine how entrepreneurs can harness the power of social media to promote their brands and differentiate themselves from the competition. Business owners accept that they must use social media as an integral part of their public relations if they want to converse with their audience, compete with their competitors and promote their business.

The Mastermind Bible – How to Use a Mastermind Group to Become Successful (English translation of the German original by Steve Jeremy)

Alone we are strong; together we are stronger. Only together can we grow. Everyone gets to a point where they cannot move forward on their own, be it down to motivation, knowledge, trust or inspiration. At some point, we all reach our limits. This is exactly where mastermind groups come in. The idea behind them is to meet regularly in a group of 3-6 people and to exchange ideas on a specific topic. Sounds easy? It is! However, there are a few basic rules to follow. This guide will help you get to the bottom of the mastermind group concept, and explain what they are all about and how they can enrich both your professional and your personal life with the help of other people. Change your thinking processes and broaden your knowledge with mastermind groups – after all, you never stop learning!
