How are you successful? What did you do to become successful? You have an opportunity here. You see, each one of you has been successful in some way. Maybe you have enjoyed amazing success. Maybe you turned a failing company into a profitable powerhouse? Maybe you retired at 45 years old? Maybe you would say you have only had limited success.  Either way I hope you can take a few minutes to share one or two stories of your own success with us here.

Many successful people will tell you that the only way to succeed, is through failure. You’ve probably heard this famous quote, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” -Thomas A. Edison. We all learn from failure. Some people like to hear more about people’s failures in business, than their success stories. Why? So they don’t make the same mistakes. In fact, if you have a story of  failures (a.k.a. what not to do in business), I know our readers would like to hear about them.  The advice you share through your past failures may just help someone who is trying to build a successful businesses.  True we could all go to another webinar, read another self-help book or watch a video. But we would rather hear from you. Also, if your success came from any others sources you respect, let us know.

As you know I do like to include videos in my posts. I was looking for one or two that would meld well with the theme “Success”.  Steve Jobs explains the rules for success. . .


On a more lighthearted look at how to be successful I also found the Michael J. Fox full length movie from the 80’s, “The Secret of My Success”. Not sure that it is exactly the roadmap we should follow but you might find it entertaining.


So what is YOUR secret to success?

The suspense may almost be more than you can handle. . .so without further delay here it is…PEOPLE. That’s right “people”. The human race. “But wait,” you say. “Erik? We’re waiting to find out about the best apps out there. What’s your favorite app?” Perhaps you may have thought that I was going to say Angry Birds or Pandora or even the App for the App Store itself. So, maybe the lead should have been, “How do you learn about the best/favorite apps?”

There are times when you come across new apps you like simply by searching words, terms or things you are interested in. We all often wonder, “Is there an app for that?” And often we find that there is one. Finding a new app on your own is fine but I would rather hear about new apps from others. What they like about them, how they use them and why they are their favorites.

In my last blog I mentioned that I rely on my friends in many ways as it relates to social media. I look to you now, to share your favorite apps here.

What is your favorite app? Why do you like it? How do you use it?
