    9:00 PM:      Dissecting the Job Description


    There is probably nothing more tedious than plowing through a long-winded job description to find out if a particular job is a good fit for you.  But as CEOs managing a business, we know they are crucial to our success. The job description is your first clue as to whether a particular position is a good fit for you or not.  If you can adequately match your skills to those required in a particular job description, then this document becomes the “trigger” for developing a value proposition. In fact, you won’t be able to create a value proposition without one.

    Techniques to Control Fear and Worry as the CEO of Me, Inc.

    9:00 PM:      Techniques to Control Fear and Worry


    Fear remains one of the most crippling of all diseases. Fear blocks our ability to listen attentively, to think clearly, to decide wisely, and to grow maturely. I few live our lives in fear, we remain enslaved. Decisions made in fear impede growth because they do not tolerate new possibilities. Lives lived in fear cause our inner life to die slowly. Fear hinders hope, and without hope in our lives we have already died within ourselves.

    How to Develop and Leverage TRUST as the CEO of Me, Inc.

    in Jobs

    It’s important to understand that as the CEO of Me, Inc. your actions and behaviors carry a significant level of consequences simply because you are gradually becoming more and more involved in the lives of others.  It’s very much like leaving a trail of trust transactions behind you wherever you go that’s visible not only to those with whom you interact directly but those who learn of your reputation by association.  Without ever intending to do it, your interactions with others leave a kind of trust fingerprint that’s visible across the network so that others gradually learn how to measure your integrity, reliability, and willingness to reciprocate.  Based on their assessments, they decide if you are worthy of their cooperation, respect — and, of course, trust.
