I highly recommend attending the next Chick-fil-A Leaderfest!
You can expect to be challenged. Inspired. Encouraged. You will learn how to improve your own leadership skills and also have the opportunity to network with other leaders in your area. You will see how less equals more as you move forward as a leader.
It is a rough job! Today I went to the How B2B Marketers Can Use Social Media to Propel Personal Business Goals, presented by Trish Cunningham, Business Development Manager for Brookwoods Group. We discussed the social media “rights” and “wrongs.” Over all I feel that social media is a good tool to help your business grow.
1. Links add context to a tweet/post and give you the opportunity to drive fans back to your website (or someone else’s that you think is really great).
2. Make sure your accounts have photos, bios, and you are interacting with your friends/followers regularly.
3. Post interesting articles and things that people want to link to – the best way to get links and retweets is to post great stuff that will catch someone’s interest.
DCR Business Leads wants to wish the Houston Texans good luck this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. It is no secret that this is the Texans first run into the playoffs, every week brings a new experience. In the Wild-Card round, they picked up their first victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. Now, they’ll make their first road appearance in the postseason. Both teams should have a similar game plan: Run game vs. run game and defense vs. defense.
The Ravens have already defeated the Texans back in Week 6, when Schaub was still the starting QB for Houston. Three months and two quarterbacks later, Houston’s back in Baltimore with T.J. Yates running the show. He’ll have to be pretty much flawless and be able to handle the pressure of playing on the road with the loud and ruthless Baltimore fans.
Today I embarked on a journey to the AMA (American Marketing Association) Luncheon event in Houston. Philip C. Jacobs, Senior VP, CMO, Service Corporation International (Dignity Funeral Homes) was the speaker.

Now lets get to what everyone really wants to know… HOW WAS THE FOOD??? I will let you be the judge!
