Who do you think you are? (VS Who are you, really?)

We all have an image of ourselves; a vision of who we think we are, or who we would like to be. We like to think that the world sees us the way we want them to see us. But how close are these impressions to the reality of who we actually are? Are you the person you think you are?

The following article, which appeared earlier this week in the Huffington Post, examines this self-image vs. actual image dichotomy. Especially with the constant desire to project ourselves a certain way on social media sites, we find we are constantly defining ourselves, explaining ourselves, and telling people what we are rather than showing them.

Tips for Public Speaking

It’s called glossophobia (from the greek word glossa, meaning tongue, and phobos, meaning fear or dread) and it is the number one fear of most people, ranking above death, spiders, heights, AND the dark! That means that 3 out of every 4 people on the earth would rather die in the dark on a rooftop covered in spiders than give a speech.

Unfortunately, as a UFO there will be plenty of wonderful opportunities (or devastating obligations, depending on how you look at it) to get up in front of people and speak about your business, your products, and even your own experiences.

Have You Used Google Translate to Expand Your Reach?

I remember my first Market America Convention quite vividly – and I think about it often. I felt so inspired and energized – I would be hard pressed to forget what an awesome experience it was! I think about that first convention frequently – mostly because that’s when the spirit of Market America family really clicked for me.

To me, it’s a true testament to an organization when folks from all walks of life can come together to build a team and work together to find success. Read More
