How to become a thought leader

How to become a thought leader

Presently the buzz on social media is all about owning and creating content and then using this to become a thought leader to create and secure a strong brand. Then you utilize the brand to build influence, and the influence to drive profits through increased sales.


I think you’ll see this trend continue for 18 months until people realize what creating content is really all about, but obviously I’m not going to put that in print here. You’ll have to get to know me better and create a relationship with me to secure that trust  😉

On Valentine’s Day

A few words that could make your life as blessed as mine.

If you are not sure if you love someone or not, you do not, just accept that and be grateful you dodged a bullet.Image

I had several near misses with several lovely ladies but they were not right for me.

Deep down inside, because I always knew I needed and wanted a life long partner, I wanted to believe I could make these relationships work. Thankfully, I looked to Mum and Dad as examples and knew I was kidding myself.

Don’t kid yourself, just realize if you have doubts those doubts are real.

I’ve never doubted my love for my lovely wife.

Find someone that completes you and you complete them, and enjoy life.

Time to start being responsible? The daily rant

With the ever increasing costs of power there will be more and more use for services and products that monitor and feedback our usage and consumption of energy. With the fluffy first 10 years of this century, we convinced ourselves money just fell out from anywhere we demanded and expected it to come from, reality check, we now need to start being responsible for our lives. Enough of expecting others to do it for us, and relying on handouts. Perhaps people will soon realize it is OK to switch off a light, put on extra clothing, or even just stop wasting money and complaining about it.

Yes, I know there are general issues and problems out there, and many are short of money, but when you see people filling up at one petrol station, when the one across the road sells diesel at cheaper prices you have to ask yourself who is at at fault for them being short of money.

Then you get these morons that accelerate and brake repeatedly in traffic queues, and drive right behind you in icy conditions. One of these stupid idiots has just rammed my business partner in a traffic queue, she’d 6 points on her licence already, and was 26 years of age and drove a BMW. enough said. She was more about image than use of intelligence. Safe to drive?

Off the soap box, soon !
Yesterday I took Mike to the neck specialist, as he has still to get his vehicle returned following and interruption in his life by the stupid BMW driver. On the way, the sat nav took us down snowy side streets… at school leaving time.

Parents, “stop walking your young kids down the roads, getting hit by a car is more dangerous than them falling over”.

Drivers “If you want to talk on your mobile phone, please stop first, then after you’ve stopped and got out of your car to have a fag, don’t stand in the road, stand on the pavement. You just became a pedestrian when you got out of your car”

Children “Don’t run in and out of traffic, we allow all form of morons to drive, one of them will happily snap your bones” … and most likely will not be insured.

If you think I’m exaggerating, I’m not, one of my friends wives was driven into as a pedestrian and is lucky to be alive. The pointer of the car (driver seems a bit of stretch, since you are supposed to keep the car under control as a driver) will probably feel sorry for a few months, my friend’s wife will suffer for the rest of her life, because they refused to drive responsibly.
