Hey there, and welcome to a very special blog post. Today, from 12.00 noon Eastern / 11.00am Central / 9.00am Pacific time, the blog is being given over to you and my very special guest, David Siteman Garland of The Rise to the Top.
David’s an entrepreneur extraordinaire, who helps businesses grow their success and shows them how to do it without any of the fluff you can often find from similar folks. He’s one of the most passionate people I know, and is a rollercoaster (in a good way) of fun, smarts and energy.
He’s just released a book called Smarter, Faster, Cheaper that continues his no-fluff approach to building, marketing and succeeding at your own business, as well as the community around it. And today he’s on this blog to answer any questions you have.
Because I use Livefyre, it’s more like a chat room as opposed to a standard comments system. Not only does it update in real-time, but you’ll see a cool little alert box to show you when a new comment has been posted. That way, you can jump between the conversation whenever you want.
To use the interactive options, you can either sign in using your Twitter or Facebook profile (if you have one), or create a Livefyre account when you post your first comment (just select the Create Commenter Profile option).
So, for an hour or so from noon onwards, David will be all yours. He’ll be waiting for your questions about starting a business and/or community, and building it successfully. Simply ask your question in the comments, and David will reply as soon as he sees it pop up. You can wait on your reply, or jump to other questions – the choice is yours!
Now, this could be a huge success or a crazy ass mess. Either way, though, let’s have fun and ask a ton of questions.
I’ll let David introduce himself and the book in the video below, and then the comments and the rest of the blog is yours and David’s – so, over to you!
You can buy David’s book at the official Smarter, Faster, Cheaper website, as well as pick up some cool giveaways.
