    Business Networking with 22,000 Students

    Business Networking with 22,000 Students

    I spoke to students (online) about business networking. I covered:

    1. Understand they have value to offer

    2. Provide structure to examine what network they already have

    3. Refine their presentation (online and in person)

    4. Steps to grow and nurture their network

    I am glad to be giving back to the community and building our future.



    Most of us solo entrepreneurs, freelance professionals, and small business owners don’t need thousands or even hundreds of customers. We just need a handful each month. The best way to grow your business and get more customers is through your professional network. Feb 8-11 I am running a Networking Bootcamp.

    Where I will show you the:


    ROI of networking (vs. paid ads)
    How to gather your network connections
    Finding the gold in your network
    Steps to strategically build your network to improve      referrals

    Join me in Bootcamp during February 8-11 at 2-2:30pm PST. Register at https://rebrand.ly/NetworkingBootcamp

    It Has A Secret Entrance

    It Has A Secret Entrance

    I came home after school to a surprise - a new clubhouse.

    Today, there is a new place to meet and build our professional networks: Clubhouse. Learn more.

    This week it’s the January edition of the Virtual Global Tea Break – a global networking opportunity. It’s 90 minutes of connecting with remarkable people. We have added a teaching portion. This month we are fortunate to have Jim Fuhs (Fuhsion Marketing, “Marketing the Marine Corps Way”) to share about Clubhouse.

    If you'd like to connect with me, find me at https://www.dscottsmith.co/contactscott.

    Census of the Entire Roman World?

    Census of the Entire Roman World?

    What we learn Octavius (Caesar Augustus). His world had changed and at 18 years old was given the newly formed Roman Empire.

    I recorded “Threnody” for Audible. You can hear a sample here: https://smile.amazon.com/Threnody-Century-Sensibility-Proves-Changed/dp/B07R7NNV7B/

    The Big Easy

    The Big Easy

    Why is New Orleans called, "The Big Easy"? The best encapsulation I read was over at cuturetrip.com where they said, “it defines how folks in New Orleans embrace life; and that people here do things their own way, without ever fearing judgement.”

    If you are entrepreneurial, you find novel solutions to problems. You are remarkable!

    Son, Take the Garbage Out

    Son, Take the Garbage Out

    The year of the pandemic is passing and we look to 2021 and beyond. There are five areas of focus for your personal and professional life and each of those five needs to have three things. In this episode we look at what is required to be successful in the coming year.

    SPOILER ALERT: Goals are not enough. You must have systems in place.

    You may be like me and are looking for tools to keep focus. I use a digital calendar for my appointments, but this did not help me define or track progress to my goals. That's why I created the Independent Planner. It's a system to supplement my online calendar with a Goal Tracking. I get immediate feedback each day on meeting my goals. Learn more at Independent-Planner.com.
