Stephanie Sims2,771*Pooling Our Knowledge: Entrepreneurs’ Community Hangout* *Monday, May 12 2014* *1:00 pm Pacific (4:00 pm Eastern, 3:00 pm Central, and 2:00 pm Mountain)*   We’re excited to start this HOA series specifically for the Entrepreneurs’ Community, entitled “Pooling Our Knowledge”. Each week, a community member (or two!) will speak on their area of expertise, and give you some tips to improve your business in that specific area.   Of course, we’ll take all the questions from the audience that we have time for during the show, and do our best to respond to those we can’t answer on-air afterwards.   Not only will you get some helpful tips, but you’ll have the opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs who may be struggling with the same issues that you are!   This week’s topic is *“Setting Your Business up for Financial Success”.* We’ll be covering some of the essential tools you need to manage your finances, including financial projections and financial reporting (and NO, they aren’t the same thing!). If you have any questions, please leave them on the event page! This week’s hosts are: @100507762856957104832    Judi is the founder of GrowthCast. She helps small businesses see their financial future. Judi and GrowthCast are on a mission to demystify business financials and allow any business owner to understand the health of their business. @104267556228949747305  Stephanie gives owners a new way to measure the value of their business, using a method called Finance-Ability. She wants owners to understand the value of their company before they get involved in any financial decisions, so they are dealing from a position of strength. Knowing your worth is always a good thing - in life and in business!   We look forward to seeing you for the first of many community hangouts!   #PoolingOurKnowledge #EntrepreneursCommunityHOA  POOLING OUR KNOWLEDGE - Entrepreneurs' Community Hangout2014-05-12 22:00:0032

martin shervington1,429,671*Want to ask questions about publishing YOUR book?* Well, next week I will be joined by Shawn Welch, co-author of 'APE: author, publisher, entrepreneur'. I am sure he will have a lot of answers for you as well. *When.* Sunday at 7pm GMT; 11am PST; 2pm EST. *What it is all about.* Since reading Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch's book 'APE: Authors Publisher and Entrepreneur' I felt inspired to help more people follow their dream. I've motivated people for years to find their enthusiasm of writing, and published a few books myself along the way (both traditional and self-publishing). *The Plan:* Guy has launched the FREE 4 session course and Shawn will take us into Session two. So get yourself ready with some interesting questions! Then, in the following two on-air hangout sessions, I will help you get some structure in place that will help motivate you to become a successful author - I've gone down the publishing and self publishing route myself.  There may also have additional guests to the subsequent hangouts to get you focused and inspire your inner author! *Next Dates:* 17th Feb 17th March *Interested in getting involved?* Click ‘YES’ on the event, read Guy’s book and I’ll see you at the launch! Want to know more about Guy and Shawn’s book check out this post on my blog: http://www.martinshervington.com/getting-books-published-with-ape-author-publisher-entrepreneur-self-publishing/Going 'APE' with Shawn Welch!2013-01-20 20:00:0060

This isn't the first LastPass breech and it's unlikely to be the last. Which is why I don't keep my passwords with a cloud manager. It a very real way, it ironically increases your risk.___Kind of defeats the purpose of having a password manager doesn't it?

To be fair, I once went to a "Wedding Dress Burning" party on the beach to celebrate a friend's recent divorce. We nailed some two by fours together and draped the dress over them and had a little ceremony while we carried it down to the fire rings on the beach. Then we doused the whole thing in lighter fluid and after a countdown set it on fire.

The dress burned away immediately, the wood - in this shape of a cross, did not. We were inadvertently having a highly visible cross burning on a public beach!

There was one black guy in our group had he thought it was hilarious, but we were horrified. I remember seeing people on the boardwalk not far from us with their mouths agape. After a few minutes, someone in our group kicked it over, but not before many, many people had seen it.

Good read - users of Google's new technologies should use extreme caution before investing too heavily- there's a better than even chance Google will simply dump them later.

Google, in its wisdom, has apparently decided it's better to have a bunch of mediocre products with functionality spread out among different apps, rather than a few good products. The only explanation that makes sense to me is that Google wants to give its various product teams something interesting to do. They no longer seem to operate with their customers in mind.

Harassing Phone Calls from a Google Voice Number. I have received several crank phone calls this morning from someone who wouldn't identify himself and just kept saying "it's me". I know this is related to Google+ because he mentioned one of my collections here. The first call had caller ID blocked. The second - either intentionally or by mistake came from this number:

323-487-1082

I have a pretty good idea who this is - a guy who kept spamming the Entrepreneurs community with a scam who we had to ban, but who then kept harassing one of our moderators. Is there any way to verify that identity from this phone number? - and is there a procedure for reporting it for abuse and harassment?

I was wondering if this was going to happen. There's been several disturbing stories lately about people dying from falling off cliffs in San Diego while looking at their phones anyway. . It seems like Google and the game maker should have thought about this.

My new gym / weight room. A sleepy little recreation center near the beach that no one ever comes to. I brought my boxing gloves so I get to take my frustration out on that heavy bag. I haven't done weights in like forever so this is going to take some getting used to. It's lonely here though, I wish I had a workout partner.

Google+ is now five years old - what do you really think about it? Recently, this social network - Google+, celebrated it's fifth birthday - and different groups at Google posted all sorts of self-congratulatory messages. I am curious about something though - what do you really think about Google+ how do you use it, and do you think it has a future?

No leading the witness, so I won't weigh in yet, but give us your unvarnished opinion: Are you still meeting new people here? Do you use it for social networking, entertainment, news and opinion reading, or business? Does it work well for these things or not? Is it a good use of your time? Do you think you will still be using it a year from now? What do you think Google will do with it?

You get the picture - the one thing we all have in common here is that we are all users of Google+ I suspect that their are as many opinions of Google+ as there are users of Google+ but it would be interesting to get a sense of what people in this community are thinking right now. What is your current opinion of Google+?___

Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business Community. With the announcement that this Google operated community is being discontinued, I would like to invite members to this community that is run by entrepreneurs and small business owners. We are smaller - about 80,000 members, but that growth has been organic, and we have learned a great deal from each other.

A few caveats - the community is strictly moderated and we ask that you rarely, if ever, post your own material. We want to avoid it becoming a "link dumping" ground like what happened here. Also, we have no idea what the future will bring - Google Community technology haven't had a significant upgrade in several years and Google has made it extremely difficult to build and manage an actual online community.

Video Security Doorbell. Apparently these are selling like hotcakes in Los Angeles. When someone rings your doorbell - or even comes near it, it will activate live video on your smart phone and you can talk to that person as if you were home even if you are at your office. Many home burglaries start with the criminal checking to see if you are home first and this is said to have resulted in a reduction of crime in some areas. Gotta love that it failed on Shark Tank.

Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business Community. With the announcement that this Google operated community is being discontinued, I would like to invite members to this community that is run by entrepreneurs and small business owners. We are smaller - about 80,000 members, but that growth has been organic, and we have learned a great deal from each other.

A few caveats - the community is strictly moderated and we ask that you rarely, if ever, post your own material. We want to avoid it becoming a "link dumping" ground like what happened here. Also, we have no idea what the future will bring - Google Community technology haven't had a significant upgrade in several years and Google has made it extremely difficult to build and manage an actual online community. Earlier this year, for example, they inexplicably removed Hangouts and Hangouts on Air from... more »

That being said, we are making the best of it and "doing what we can with what we've got" - and you are welcome to join us.___

What is your GTD system?

Do you have a system for "GTD" - i.e. "getting things done"? If not, you should - these days, it is almost mandatory for business and life itself. There is not one "right way" to make a GTD system though - they are as unique as each individual. Some people have highly automated system that link together different apps - others swear by their manual "paper and pencil systems" - even some who are otherwise technophiles.

I thought it might be interesting to describe my evolving system, and to learn what others are doing. Mine is a little complex, but if you like this kind of stuff it might interest you - and it is far from perfect, so if you have ideas or suggestions, let me know:

What is your GTD system?

Do you have a system for "GTD" - i.e. "getting things done"? If not, you should - these days, it is almost mandatory for business and life itself. There is not one "right way" to make a GTD system though - they are as unique as each individual. Some people have highly automated system that link together different apps - others swear by their manual "paper and pencil systems" - even some who are otherwise technophiles.

I thought it might be interesting to describe my evolving system, and to learn what others are doing. Mine is a little complex, but if you like this kind of stuff it might interest you - and it is far from perfect, so if you have ideas or suggestions, let me know:

1. Task Capture. For quick "task capture" on my Android, I use Evernote. By "task capture" I mean when I get an idea for something I should do, I need a way to record it quickly and conveniently before I forget it. I have a folder set up in Evernote for this, and each task is a a separate note. I usually only use the title field, and Android speech-to-text usually would well enough that capturing this idea/task will only take 20 seconds or so - and then I can forget about it till later.

2.. Task Organizing and Analysis. The tasks I captured in Evernote are automatically added as new tasks in Asana via IFTTT. I like Asana because the free version allows both projects and tags - so you can look at things from a bunch of different angles. For example, one of my tags is "writing" so I can see all my writing tasks even if they are in different projects. Asana is where I "slice and dice" my tasks - they are prioritized, categorized, clarified and sometimes redefined, and assigned to projects.

3. Project Scheduling. This is something I don't do often enough, but is an important part of my system. Periodically, I take a "top down" look at each individual project, and plan that as if it was the only thing in the world. I still use Asana for this, but prioritize the tasks for each project, and usually think of new ones at the same time.

4.. Big Picture Planning. This is where I organize and think through "higher level" planning concepts. These are things like "goals", "values', "resources:, "habits" and other things that are generally more lasting and "static" than other kinds of planning items. Often, this is done free form on paper in brainstorming sessions, but the tool I like best for this is Workflowy. It is essentially an infinite level outliner and has a quick and simple interface. I have tried a number of the "mind mapping" tools, that give you a more free flow view of your plans and ideas, but none have ever worked for me, and I have learned that this structured outline approach has helped.

.5. Session Scheduling. This is where "the rubber meets the road" - when I actually put a task on my calendar and plan to work on it during for a specific time period. I am using Google Calendar for this, and I have another IFTTT integration set up so that when I add the tag "calendar" to a task in Asana, it will automatically create a Google Calendar event. This is the most time consuming part of my system but I have been diligent lately in keeping a daily calendar - even though my plans seldom match what really happens. Google recently added a "goals" option - which is really the same thing as a session - and they will try to find an open time period for your sessions, but it is not a very sophisticated tool yet. Eventually, I think Google will be adding "AI" elements to the calendar, but they are a long way off.

So that is what I do. Some may think it is overkill but it does seem to be working for me. I'd like to know what you do - what system or systems do you use for GTD?___
