Thought Leadership: How to Become Known to People Who Matter  

Do you want to be recognized as an expert in your field? Wondering how to make a name for yourself? To explore how to become known, I interview Mark Schaefer. More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. In this episode, I interview Mark Schaefer, a prolific blogger, author, and speaker. He's written Social Media Explained, The Content Code, and The Tao of Twitter. He's also been a frequent guest on this podcast. His newest book is KNOWN: The Handbook for Building and Unleashing Your Personal Brand in the Digital Age. Mark shares how to position yourself as a thought leader. You'll discover the four things it takes to become known. Share your feedback, read the show notes, and get the links mentioned in this episode below. Listen Now You can also subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher. Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Thought Leadership How Mark Became Known Before Mark launched his business, he was a global director of ebusiness at a Fortune 100 company. He had won a bunch of awards and had seven patents, a big global team, stock options, and a company car. After he left that job to start his business, Mark realized everything that he was known for at his previous company no longer mattered. He thought he was known, but he wasn't. As Mark grappled with being the go-to guy for nothing, he learned the only thing that matters in terms of your online presence is to be known. Being known isn't about being famous, but having an appropriate digital presence to help you achieve your goals. Mark says that building expertise and becoming known is a process. Nine years ago, as Mark started to teach and write for his own business, he struggled. Like everyone else, he started at the bottom. For instance, when Mark started blogging, he didn't know anything about it. Later on, Mark wrote a book about blogging. When he started consulting, he knew very little about it, but now he consults for big companies. Mark emphasizes that to start, you don't have to be an expert. You only need to be open and willing to learn continuously. I ask Mark what helped him become known again in the second phase of his career as he was building his own business. Mark says his goals, one of which was speaking at Social Media Marketing World, helped, but enjoying the journey was also important because becoming known takes time. Mark says some people set milestones that unknowingly let other people validate their work. However, as he was interviewing known people for his recent book, they often mentioned the positive impact they have on others. Mark believes this sense of mission is important because it defines who they are from within and motivates them as they put in the time necessary to become known. Listen to the show to discover how many years it takes to become known. What Prompted the Book Mark explains the two seeds that led to him write KNOWN. As research for his last book, The Content Code, Mark interviewed Jay Baer. They debated whether just anybody can become known or if you need a certain "it" factor. For three and a half years, this question stayed with Mark and he began wondering whether becoming known involved a process that he could define. The other seed, Mark explains, came from his conversations with consulting clients. People from all over the world ask Mark questions like, "How do I get in a position where I can write a book someday?" "How do I get in a position where I can be a speaker someday?" "How do I get appointed to a board?" "How do I attract more clients in my industry?" "How do I become regarded as a voice of authority?" Mark found himself giving the same answer over and over again: "To do that, you have to be known.

Schack och mat för vildsvinet, och kan Levengood lyfta kyrkovalet  

Det finns ungefär 300 000 vildsvin i Sverige, de bökar runt och ibland jagar de människor.

Vi pratar med Torsten Mörner på Viltmatakademien och Niklas Kälvegård på Ica. Finns det potential för vildsvinet, och vad hindrar annars? Ikväll är det säsongsstart på programmet om präster som söker någon att gosa med. Tro, hopp och kärlek drar igång med Mark Levengood som hjärtats häxmästare. Mark Levengood kommer också att arbeta med en debatt inför kyrkovalet och vi undrar förstås hur han jobbar med dessa olika nivåer - vad är viktigt inför kyrkovalet den 17 september och hur går snacket?

Social Sharing: How to Get More People to Share Your Content  

Do you publish content online? Want more people to share your content? To learn how to get more people to share your content, I interview Mark Schaefer. More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. In this episode I interview Mark Schaefer, author of The Tao of Twitter and Social Media Explained. His blog Grow was awarded #2 on our top 10 blogs of 2015.

Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Social Sharing How Mark got into content and blogging Around 2008, Mark started his own business doing consulting and teaching. He realized if he was going to talk about Twitter, blogging and Facebook, he had to use them. So he started a blog as an experiment. It took him about 9 months to find his voice, Mark recalls. It dawned on him that all of his contacts and business were coming through his blog, so he needed to pay attention to it. The blog really started kicking in around 2010, and has been building ever since. The turning point happened when Mark started to write posts that were more authentic and had personality. Instead of finding his audience, Mark's audience found him. Mark tells new bloggers "To stand out, you need to be original. And to be original, you need to have the courage to tell your own story and have your own voice." In 2009 Mark wrote a post that was a little bit controversial, called The Social Media Country Club. As a new blogger, Mark felt like an outsider. He says it seemed like all of the influential bloggers were in this club, where they never said anything negative about each other. Mark was thinking, "How are we going to grow if we don't challenge each other?" Coming from 27 years of marketing experience, Mark expected any channel used for business to be measurable, while others felt it was all about the conversation. Though nervous, Mark started speaking his mind. The reaction was supportive and positive. His audience was grateful somebody finally said it. Listen to the show to discover what Mark blogged about at first and how he felt about it. Why marketing with content is so difficult today Whether you're an individual blogger, working in a business or working for a brand, many niches are getting crowded with content and social media activity. This makes it very difficult to compete. Mark feels this was predictable. He says when the Internet first started, everyone needed a website. If you were the first one with a website, you had an advantage. Then you needed to be found. If you were the first one to figure out search engine optimization, you had an advantage, because you're going to be at the top of the search rankings. However, after your competitors figured it out, it got harder and more expensive to be in marketing. He says it's the same thing with blogging. It's hard to be seen, because people are figuring it out. People are trying to stand out, but creating more or better content isn't necessarily the answer. For the last year, Mark has been obsessed with figuring out how to maneuver in this very crowded world. And that's why he wrote The Content Code. Listen to the show to hear my Times Square analogy. Mark's code for success Mark explains how all conversations are about content: creating more,

This is when he visited and consumed purchases at all 171 Starbucks locations in Manhattan in less than 24 hours. Just after this 171 Starbucks story, Mark approached IKEA with a project of living and working in an IKEA store for a week. And after 2 months of being persistent, they agreed. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9q0sB_Xp6A Mark's IKEA story brought the most publicity in the USA in the history of IKEA as a company.

Parts of the challenge included taking a goat into the store, ordering a pizza to be delivered there, dressing up as Darth Vader to get his iPhone repaired and a date night for him and his wife.

Ep. 245 - Mark Manson: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F---  

Mark Manson is a writer, blogger and author of the "New York Times" bestseller, "The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F-ck". Visit his blog, markmanson.net, to read some of his best articles on self improvement, dating and relationships, culture and life choices.   2 mins - I tell Mark why I didn't initially want him in the show... and why I changed my mind 4 mins - Mark and I first met at a friend’s poker game. then I ran into him a few weeks later. But I didn't remember meeting. “Hi I'm James,” I said. Then I remembered. And I realized he was the guy from the poker game… the guy who's name I kept trying to figure out all night. “I just thought you were a chill guy,” Mark said. We laughed. That's how I'd like to start all new moments in life. With a laugh. 8 min - Mark says where he got the inspiration to write his bestselling book, "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck" 10 min - We talk about what “giving a fuck” actually means. And how to decide what's worthwhile. “I joke around with a lot of people,” Mark said. “I say I wanted to write a book about values...but I knew if I wrote a book about values no one would read it. So I put the F word everywhere. Because essentially what giving a fuck is is you are deciding what you care about. You are deciding what you value in your life.” 12 min - So then I ask Mark how you get started? 14 min - We talk about people pleasing. And self absorption. “It’s very common in the self help world to say, ‘Be true to yourself and follow your feelings.’ That’s nice and everything, but if I went out to 6th Avenue and started peeing on the corner just because I feel like it…” I interrupted. “Is that your true passion? Peeing in 6th Ave. That’s your truth?” “Yes this is my truth at the moment…” Then he got serious. “We live in a society. We’re inner-dependent on each other in many ways. So there’s tension between what you yourself want and what’s also good for the community around you. And that’s hard. I think a lot of people suffer because that balance has gotten out of whack too far one way or the other. Either their constantly people-pleasing or they’re constantly selfish and self-absorbed.” 15 min - I feel everyone starts out people pleasing. And adulthood is when you cross into being more independent. Not necessary self absorbed, but the part of your brain that works to increase your livelihood and sense of survival kicks in. And the struggle is to let go of the “people pleasing” aspect. The part of you that needs approval. I still struggle with this. “Choosing yourself” is choosing to give yourself the stamp of approval. I try this everyday. 17 min - Mark sold drugs when he was 13. Someone told the principal and he got kicked out of school. Six months later his parents got a divorce. 22  min - So I asked, “What do you think your parents could have or should have done differently in this situation?” 28 min - There's a trick to having a good relationship, he told me… it's sort of an equation. Or a scale. 31 min - He fell into a “bottomless pit” of approval. He chased every woman on campus. And learned the rules of attraction. He told me about the really sleazy pick up lines he'd use. “Does that stuff work?”I asked. “It attracts  really insecure women,” he said. And that led to his dating theory: you end up attracting what you put out. 33 min - He took what he learned about dating to build a coaching business. 35 min - We talk about Tucker Max’s books and how they’re often taken the wrong way. 41 min - Mark started traveling and living off his online business. He got serious about his writing. 43 min - Mark explains the attachment theory 45 min - He read “The Four Hour Workweek,” by Tim Ferriss. And based his nomadic life around it.  But traveling forced Mark into avoiding intimacy. He kept leaving friends behind. And later learned what he really wanted... 47 min - I asked Mark, “When did you start giving a fuck?” 48 min - He told me how he got back to his roots to see what made him happiest 50 min - Mark explains how new and exciting experiences start to fade as you get older... 53 min - And he told me why putting down roots and building a community was his newly discovered biggest value. 55 min - Then I wanted to learn the art of. It giving a fuck. There are a lot of subtleties. So I asked, “What steps do I need to take today to stop insecurities and not care as much?” 58 min - People always ask me how to find customers or readers or a marker. The first rule is this: if you make something that’s valuable, people will show up. 1 hour 2 minutes - We talk about constantly finding different metrics to measure your success by. 1 hour 3 minutes - We talk about a chapter in Chuck Klosterman’s book, But What If We're Wrong?: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past, on what survives and how it correlates with a chapter in Mark’s book.   1 hour 6 minutes - What is the subtle art, how do you do it? 1 hour 9 minutes - There are a few fundamental principles to stop giving time and energy into things that really don't matter to you. We break them down. 1 hour 12 minutes - Mark talks about starting to write his next book about relationships and how he’s already been comparing it to his first book… that's the death to all creativity. You need a free, unstressed mind to be creative everyday. Comparison is creativity’s heart attack. 1 hour 15 minutes - Every time you switch tribes, you switch the metrics of comparison. Pay attention to your tribes values. And disown any that don't matter to your heart. 1 hour 18 minutes - Your brain is always going to find a problem or a comparison, the trick it to figure out the game and trust it a little less.

Christopher Titus & Mark Pitta  

Chef Jeremiah Tower & Comedian Azhar Usman. David goes insane demanding to know why Ann Coulter won't go away? Three of the biggest names ever to come out of my hometown, San Francisco: Comedian Christopher Titus, Comedian Mark Pita, and, this is huge, Chef Jeremiah Tower, plus my new friend, one of Dave Chappelle’s favorite opening acts, and he’s writing for tomorrow night’s White House Correspondents Dinner, Comedian, Lawyer, Husband, Father, Son and Holy Ghost Azhar Usman. Christopher Titus is working on his eighth comedy special. Mark Pita recalls the early days of San Francisco comedy scene, his first Carson shot, and what it's like to hang with your comedy heroes. Jeremiah Tower! If you know anything about food this is big, and if you don’t know anything about food you need to know who Jeremiah Tower is. It all starts with Jeremiah Tower. Before Mario Batali, before Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, before Wolfgang Puck there was Jeremiah Tower who created the idea of a celebrity chef, he created not only California cuisine, he created American cuisine, he created farm to table he created the whole idea of being a locavore. He’s on the show today! Jeremiah Tower is responsible for Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California and Chez Panisse is responsible for the whole idea of locally sourced food. I know. It sounds crazy, but Jeremiah Tower in the late 70s and early 80s said, "To hell with French cooking, to hell with flying in fish from Chile, let’s cook with what’s right in front of us." You take that for granted, but until Jeremiah Tower nobody knew what fresh food tasted like. There’s a new documentary out called the Last magnificent, and it’s the story of how Jeremiah Tower didn’t just revolutionize modern dining, he created it. Martha Stewart, Mario Batali and Anthony Bourdaine are in this documentary, The Last Magnificent, it’s produced by Anthony Bourdaine, and the Last Magnificent is incredible, you’ll never look at food the same way again. So much of what we take for granted started with Jeremiah Tower in the early 80s, he went on to create Stars restaurant in San Francisco, and then, he disappeared. Fell of the face of the earth. Walked away from it all, left at the top of his game. Only to return two years ago to run Tavern on The Green in New York, as well as serve as the subject of this fantastic documentary The Last Magnificent. I would put this up there with Jiro Dreams of Sushi, that great 2011 documentary covering Jiro Ono the 85-year-old Japanese sushi master who runs a hole in the wall that Michelin gives three stars. So proud to have Jeremiah Tower on the show today. Christopher Titus has done seven comedy specials.  Never happy with doing what's been done before, Titus makes sure every show has a specific theme, while simultaneously taking the audience on a wild ride of laughter.  He is currently touring with his newest and eighth show, "AMERICA… REALLY?," in which he is half-assed running for President in 2017. After rave reviews of “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding,” Titus followed it up 2 years later with his rant on 9-11 and the world coming apart in “The 5th Annual End of the World Tour.” This 90-minute piece once again shows how Christopher is a comic who either suffers from A.D.D., or is an angry white trash maniac. After his second show, all hell broke loose in Titus’ life.  A bad divorce and an amazing new relationship brought his third 90-minute show to life. “Love is Evol" goes through the ups and downs of love and divorce in a way that no comic has before.  If you’ve ever been in love and had your heart ripped out, this show will heal you... and steel you for the future. Never holding back, Christopher Titus was able to do three ninety-minute shows in only five years.  Most comics would take a break and recharge, but instead, Titus dropped “NEVERLUTION” in 2011.  Neverlution takes on the entire country and its complacency with everything from terrorism and politics, to child-rearing and technology.  Titus again shows he is up to more than just stand-up comedy.Between 2004 and 2011, Titus released six hours of comedy.  Now what?  “VOICE IN MY HEAD” is what.  Titus turns his rage and hilarity inward, and kicks his own ass with this special about every mistake he has made in his life, including getting his TV show cancelled. The disc ends with an epic 28-minute piece about meeting Bruce Springsteen and what an idiot Titus continued to be in front of “The Boss." Only one year later, Titus released “Angry Pursuit of Happiness.”  One of his best specials, Titus takes the audience on a ride through life.  From the bit, “Arm the Children,” to His Dad’s ED problem, to one of his most epic pieces, “Here’s How Life Goes,” you will laugh your ass off while reconsidering your own life choices. In “BORN WITH A DEFECT,” Titus tackles one of his toughest subjects to date-- kids.  In an hour and forty minutes, Titus deconstructs the love of children and proves that they really don’t care about us at all. He also gives parenting advice and tells stories that would make a child therapist get a restraining order. As he says in the show, “If you are a parent this show is therapy, if you don’t have kids it’s 90 minutes of birth control.”   If you are counting, that’s seven specials in only 12 years. Titus has done the work, paid his dues and has the history to show that he is one of the best comics working today.  Not happy to just write bit after unrelated bit, Titus always brings a cohesive, complete show. Titus’ comedy is part rant, part confession, part therapy, but ALWAYS funny.  His reputation is one of a hard, funny comic who takes no prisoners and gives the audience everything he has, in every show he does. He has tackled the world, relationships, families, the human race and most of all, himself. Mark’s career flourished in LA, first, fulfilling his dream of appearing on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson then subsequent appearances with Jay Leno. Mark landed a job as host of Totally Hidden Video for the FOX network, playing different characters in hidden camera situations and then hosting Friday Night Videos for NBC. Mark has made guest appearances on Mad About You and Third Rock from the Sun. For Comedy Central Mark has appeared on Premium Blend; The A-List; Dr. Katz; and Make Me Laugh. Mark wrote and starred in his own sitcom for NBC but the pilot wasn’t chosen for the fall season. Head of NBC, Warren Littlefield picked a show called “Union Square” instead. It lasted three episodes. Mark predicts that his show would have lasted at least four. When the word came down that the project wasn’t a go Mark magically received a call from the top rated morning show in the San Francisco Bay Area to be the roving entertainment reporter/host. For five years Mark brought his unique comic expertise to the man on street format and enjoyed the original approach to interviewing newsmakers, movie stars and everyday folk. In 1997 Mark achieved the comedy version of the hat trick when, during a show, he made a women (name withheld) laugh so hard she wet her pants, cried, and liquid came out of her nose. There is no higher honor. A favorite on the comedy club; college; and corporate circuit, Mark has also opened for Chris Issak, Celene Dion, Vanessa Williams, Paul Anka, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton John, Smokey Robinson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Rick Springfield. The prestigious ELAN AWARDS has chosen Mark as Master of Ceremonies five times, and Anthony Robbins has employed Mark to liven up his financial seminars. Every Tuesday in Mill Valley, California, Mark runs a comedy showcase at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre new comics a chance to develop. Veterans like Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, and Richard Lewis have also stopped by. AZHAR USMAN is a standup comedian, actor, writer, playwright, and producer. He is one of the hottest standup comics based in Chicago; CNN called him "America's Funniest Muslim," and Georgetown University identified him as "one of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World." In 2010, standup icon Dave Chappelle–for whom Azhar has opened over 50 times–commented "Azhar Usman is untouchable." As the co-founder of the international comedy showcase "Allah Made Me Funny–The Official Muslim Comedy Tour," he has toured over 20 countries, on five continents. His comedy has been profiled/reviewed by over 100 major world media outlets including The New York Times, The Economist, BBC, The Guardian, NPR, TIME Magazine, Al-Jazeera, USA Today, and Fox News.

107: Why Every Shot Counts when it comes to Strokes Gained with Mark Broadie  

Today I am joined by author, educator, speaker, and golfer; Dr. Mark Broadie. Commonly known as the ‘Doctor of Golf’ Mark is at the forefront of a revolutionary new approach to the game. A professor at Columbia Business School, Mark helped the PGA Tour develop its cutting-edge strokes gained stat. Broadie uses analytics from the financial world to uncover the secrets of the game of golf, with a focus on crunching mountains of data to show both professional and amateur golfers how to make better decisions on the course.

The strokes gained stat has been influential in changing the way we think about golf, and where we should be focusing. Putting and driving are often touted as being the most important aspects of a golfer’s game, but Mark’s work shows (convincingly) why most of the top golfers win with their approach.

How Mark started applying the same analytics from his day job (business professor) to improve his golf game.
Debunking some common golf myths, like ‘drive for show, putt for dough’.
How Mark came up with the strokes gained stat, and why it’s so important to track. Mark also explains how it’s a more precise version of the intuition golfers have already been using for years.
The importance of the approach game. About 40% of the advantage top players have over lower ranked players comes from approach shots.
How anyone can use strokes gained and Mark’s app Golf Metrics to improve their game.
Why we shouldn’t credit Tiger Woods’ putting game as much his driving and approach game.
How Jordan Spief is such a great player by being slightly better than average in every aspect of his game, rather than dominating just one.

Who are some notable names you’ve played with?
 Luke Donald, Michael Jordan, Justin Rose to name a few
What was it like to walk a course with Michael Jordan, and what were some of the conversations you had outside of golf?
 He had a custom built golf cart like a stretch limousine, with drinks and music. He was also trash talking Luke Donald throughout the round!
What’s most exciting for you as you move forward?
 There’s a lot more work to be done on golf strategy, and a lot of fascinating questions to be answered. You can improve your game by playing smarter. I’m looking forward to diving more deeply into that.

365: Mark Divine | Six Weeks to SEALfit  

Toughness goes beyond just physical prowess.

"We like to go to the challenge before the challenge comes to us."-Mark Divine

The Cheat Sheet: Why do 80% of Navy SEAL trainees fail? What's the oldest personal development system known to mankind? When do we grow and learn the most according to Mark? What is kokoro and why is it an important part of his trainings? Confirmation bias and intuition: what are the differences? And so much more...

In the US we see our Navy SEALs as the most elite and effectively-trained soldiers of our country. On the show today is a former Navy SEAL Commanderin and honor-man Mark Divine.

Today on The Art of Charm Mark talks about how his background led him to develop Sealfit, a live academy and online integrative warrior training program that uses SEAL training methods to help people achieve their fullest potential. All of that and more on episode 365.

More About This Show:

Mark wasn't just an Navy SEAL, he served for 9 years in active duty and 11 years as a reservist. He retired as a Commanderin in 2011 and was named honor-man among his Navy SEAL training class. An honor-man is someone who has shown the highest levels of integrity, leadership and teamwork during their training to become a SEAL.

He also holds black belts in several forms of martial arts, is teacher-trained in Ashtanga yoga, and later developed his own yoga style called Warrior Yoga. While all of that may be impressive, it also explains the foundation and where his Sealfit programs stem from. He blends mind and body and teaches people who are interested in this type of training to reach their full warrior potential.

Sealfit uses mental, physical, emotional, intuitive and kokoro trainings to achieve this potential. Mark says this training is meant to help the people who participate become honorable people who serve their family, their community and humanity at large.

There are a variety of programs available from a 12-month long digital offering called The Unbeatable Mind to a 50-hour non-stop program called Kokoro Camp, it's modeled after Hell Week and is for the elite athletes and pre-special operation forces trainees of the world.

There are many different tools used in all of his courses. One of the techniques we talk about in this episode is a breathing technique to control your stress levels. Mark explains it like this: to calm down or stay calm breath in through your nose and exhale through your nose you.

What happens when you do that is your breath is stimulating your diaphragm. There is a bundle of nerves there that triggers your parasympathetic nervous system, the counterpart to your sympathetic nervous system which is responsible for your fight, flight or freeze response.

Doing something as simple as taking deep breaths in and out of your nose repeatedly will calm your body, thus calming your mind. When your mind and body are calm you can focus more intently and stay alert. You can use this trick anytime you're stressed, it doesn't have to be a life or death situation! Use it before a big interview or before you ask a girl out on a date.

Mark gives us another breathing tool to use and also shares his thoughts on intuition and trusting your gut. He tells us about a few examples from his life when he did or didn't trust his instinct, and the consequences. He also explains why the most successful people in the world are the most emotionally developed, and what his programs offer in that vein.

It was fascinating to have Mark here and to listen to his stories, his personal experiences and knowledge on how to get the most out of our bodies and minds. Thanks to Mark for joining us and as always, thank you for being here. We'll see you next time.

THANKS MARK DIVINE!
