Why It Makes Sense to Market Your Content on LinkedIn

Connie Ragen Green — LinkedIn for Content Marketing

LinkedIn is an excellent location to use for content marketing. Content marketing is an essential part of doing business today, whether you have an online or offline business. You need content to communicate with your audience, to produce useful information, and maybe even to create your products. I had a call with marketing expert Brian Basilico after he presented at my live marketing event in Los Angeles and he shared how he was using LinkedIn to attract a following of prospects who would be interested in what he was doing…

Back in the early days of growing my online business, I learned some things that continue to serve me well…

Connie Ragen Green — When I Had Only 50 on My List

Once I began achieving some success as an online entrepreneur I vowed to never forget what it was like in the beginning. Most of my early prospects were people I had met at local networking events or through the non-profits I was volunteering with in my new community. Each time I sent an email I imagined someone I knew scrutinizing every sentence and noting any typos or grammatical errors. Finally I put those thoughts out of my mind and just…

There wasn’t a sound to be heard as the attorney asked me the question for the second time. I sat still and upright in my chair before answering her.

Connie Ragen Green — “That Time When I Pleaded the Fifth…”

There wasn’t a sound to be heard as the attorney asked me the question for the second time. I sat still and upright in my chair before answering her.

“I’m going to invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege.” I looked down at my hands in my lap and waited for someone else to speak.

The silence continued until a child in the back of the courtroom went into a coughing fit. When…

If You’re Thinking Somebody Else is More Likely to Achieve Goals, That “Somebody Else” Just Might Be You

Connie Ragen Green — That “Somebody Else is You”

I went through most of my life not believing in myself. When there was something I wanted to do I told myself that others could do it, but not me. Even when I did manage to accomplish a goal I played down my role in achieving it. That all changed when I came online in 2006. A world of possibilities opened up to me. When I was willing to do the work great success followed.

My confidence and self-esteem improved and now I believe I can do just about anything. I’ve allowed this belief to spill over into my private…

“Everything we choose to do during our lifetimes and everything that comes into our realm of consciousness is preparing us for something we will be called to do in the future.” ~ Connie Ragen Green

Connie Ragen Green — When My Preparation Met Opportunity

I have long known that nothing is an accident or a coincidence or just plain luck. I came to this conclusion after too many things in my life came about after I planted the seeds in my mind and focused on them. …

Strategic Thinking Skills as a Tool for Entrepreneurial Success

Connie Ragen Green — Strategic Thinking Skills for Entrepreneurs

What comes to mind when you read or hear the term strategic thinking skills? You may know it’s essential for your career and your business, but how do you actually do it? I think back to when I first started telling family members that we all needed to become thinking people. They stared at me without saying a word and waited for me to explain what I meant. I told them that no matter what we were about to embark on in our lives, we had to step back and think about it strategically. This would enable us all to…

The 4-Hour Workweek: Myths, Fallacies, and What Actually Works

Connie Ragen Green — The 4 Hour Work Week — Is It Right for You?

Within months of my coming online as an entrepreneur back in 2006, Tim Ferriss released his book, “The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9–5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich” to the world.

I was one of the many people who purchased the book and left a 5-Star review that catapulted Ferriss to fame and fortune. …

I should have known that a river ran through it.

Connie Ragen Green — A River Ran Through It

I should have known that a river ran through it. Even from the main road leading into the property, the roar of water moving rapidly had entered my consciousness. The Pacific Ocean was less than a kilometer to the west, but oceans make a very different sound and have their own unique rhythm. This was definitely a river, or perhaps a creek that was very close by.

It was March of 1986 and once again I’d accepted an appraisal assignment in Santa Barbara. At that time I was living in…
