Caring for your personal brand

Category : John Davies, Renegade Business Network

While it can take years to develop a reputation of quality and honour within the modern world of super connectivity, it can end in the briefest of moments. The public, connected with powerful information sources such as Twitter and Facebook receives updates near instantly on their collective mobiles long before a news agency can develop a story. In the early stages of a “newsworthy” item, opinions will be made, possibly not based on fact and depending on how deep the situation relates to the mainstream an individuals’ fame and surge or flicker.

Though in many situations, most notably humanitarian concerns, the public will move in near unison yet quite often there is no apparent rhyme or reason. The examples are endless, such as while the public rushed to the aid of Haiti during the earthquake in 2009, a year later it was not as charitable with the events in Japan. The “how and why” is a peculiar mix, further confounded in the winter of 2010 when the public became enamoured with the ramblings of a drug addicted actor, never questioning why such comments were somehow fascinating. That along with a contemporary musical artist, clearly emulating, if not plagiarizing a hit performer of not-so distant past, makes understanding the tipping point of what is “wrong” as opposed to “right” in the public eye a challenge.

Many of these answers are a near impossible to find or at least scan on the surface. Within a glimmer of twenty years the world has shifted into hyper technology growth and the mainstream is only mid stream in understanding how it changes virtually every aspect of business. Where substance and content were once king, cultivating the right image and maintaining it is of absolute importance. One era’s scowl of lip synching in music, sending said artists into oblivion is now accepted with open arms along with audio tune. If true “substance” in the arts is waning, has fostering reputations in business environments suffered the same fate with “the spin” taking over?

Despite this and the countless counter culture reactions by the public, there is equally a broad swing of the axe if you fall astray. That is no more timely example than GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons, who through his action of hunting and killing a elephant in Zimbabwe and then releasing in a video has unleashed a massive negative wave of public sentiment against his company. While animal rights activists and those including this author find his attitude extremely flawed, why is it different from the mutterings of an entertainer, clearly nearly mental collapse and suffering from significant drug dependencies? Why does one cause problem for business while another creates a surge of public interest and demand. With respects to the situation of Bob Parsons, while animal rights advocates scream foul, others spout comparisons to Teddy Roosevelt on the hunt. What side of the equation you stand on, assuming you come into the conversation without significant pre-existing opinion, is how “the spin” effected your judgement.

The answer may simply be in a sliding morality scale where sports stars and entertainers are not subject to the same standards as those in business, though much of that could relate to how much are devoted to “the spin” of the former group and cleaning up tarnished images. This is the slippery slope because while athletes and entertainers find their reputations quickly re-built after scandalous behaviour, the rest of the world is not so fortunate.

As noted by Oleg Ilin in his article “Online Reputation and Personal Brand”, your presence in Social Media outlets effectively introduces you to the world. This daily event, the once casual interactions that were without similar worry pre social media explosion but the future, with glass walls where everything is with glass walls requires an entirely upgraded vision of branding as well as greater social consciousness. Classic business values that seemed to skip a generation are ready to return and those in business today or finalizing academics will need to resurrect adding value to their community with products and services with the sincere issue of bettering its clients. Oddly, the new business world is accelerating and re-finding its value system, where quality and honesty reign supreme.

Echoing the best damn salesman I ever knew, “we are all salesman but to be successful you must believe in adding value to the lives of all around you, move past the quick sale and build your community”.

get strong and incinerate fat

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Losing weight is a unique mix of a dietary approach of “simplicity” along with a painstaking exercise regime that promotes reducing body-fat, overall health, work threshold, optimal postural alignment and increased strength. No program is truly complete or will ease a person towards lifelong health without each aspect considered.

Within resistance work compound movements suit the goals best but with a slight modification from typical use as they used within broad complexes lasting sixty-seconds per set. This assists in assisting GH production as well as recognizing the need for postural stability. Weight chosen is typically light, roughly fifty per-cent of maximum with obvious fatigue very high.

Piecing together our “Incineration Training” regime, the day starts with RED2 and hurdle mobility drills, follow with upwards of fifteen minutes of rope skip. Quite naturally, rope skip may be beyond fitness levels at the start, so please temper it and gradually increase.

After completion of the opening section, the individual performs ten minutes non-weighted general physical preparation (“GPP”) consisting of four sets of thirty-seconds each of the following movements.

Initiatives in Education

Category : John Davies, Renegade Business Network

Education is and always will be a priority in my life. I not only strongly support educators across the world, implore governments to understand that education is an investment in the future but further stress it is foundation of bettering our society that each of us must champion.

Excuses abound while governments drain the blood from the future by reducing educational budgets as it neither shows an understanding of charting a course of growth nor recognizing its role in society. Yet in a diabolical twist, many educators are finding their budgets clamped down, classroom sizes skyrocketing and their ability to positively shape the minds of future leaders dampened.

In the simplest terms, it is a poor decision yet for generations that have been victimized by the lowering standards of education, such changes creep in on the backs of “budgetary necessities” or as one formerly great news agency now calls it, “savings”.

In the broad picture of developing a better world, there is no such thing as “savings” when it comes to lowering standards of education. There is only eventual hardship, a decline in the quality of life and the route back up is not guaranteed.

Education is an investment in the future. While I spend much of my day evaluating investments, none offers me a rate of return as does an investment in the future. That simple statement is not, nor should be an earth shattering comment as it is a tried and true principle.

Despite this, in many places of the world educational budgets are being slashed and burned. On the backs of “fiscal restraint” political leaders decree while the youth of their respective countries face a daunting future of lowered expectation and uncertainty because those sitting in the ivory tower are derelict of their duties.

I have and will continue to support educators, whether through my written work or video logs but something else must be done. It is clear that many who masquerade as leaders do not have their constituency’s best interest in mind with their decisions and the only course of action will come from the people, you and I working together to build a better tomorrow.

In addition to my recent announcement to expand my teaching program to greater online streaming, I will make myself available to educators through the Skype educational network. Providing assistance in my areas of expertise and without commercial interest, fee or agenda, I will make myself available to your classrooms throughout the world. If you have interest in this matter, please contact me at your convenience.

It is time to restore our future, to build a better tomorrow and show true leadership. It is time to build leaders of tomorrow, starting today.

As always, I remain

In faith,

John K. Davies

increasing the incineration of fat

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

What if everything you thought of how to lose weight was wrong?

What if everything aspect, all the complex diet plans and exercise programs were too complicated and in-fact much simpler that you are told?

If you have been thinking that, then as incredible as it may seem you are correct.

Whether through error, poor judgement or just trying to mystify products and services, much of the exercise field makes weight loss far too complicated.

In fact, losing weight is straightforward and while it takes time, not only can you achieve your goals but live a healthier, more active life.

Albeit a radical change in the lives of many, by following my “simplicity” dietary approaches you will not only fulfil weight management goals, save a significant amount of money on costly processed foods but equally drastically improve your health. While that change may be a challenge, once an individual adjusts it is a simple approach to a life of healthy living.
