Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Hardest Thing to Manage: Our Own Ego

« What George Washington Could Teach Us About Social Media | Main | Revealing Yourself to Others »


@Christopher -- I am reading it now and it is opening up new avenues for what I do. We are so much alike in reading. I start two or three books at a time. Can't wait to read them back to back! The Art of the Start is actually about finishing in a sense. How do you get a business up and running from an idea. It's the idea's exit strategy.

@Rohit -- I had to take a different angle, you covered marketing well. Blogger Social will be a blast, I know it. Looking forward to meeting you as well.


Glad we agree and thanks for the mention! As bloggers, you're right that once we start to get put into situations like the one with the Alltop, it is up to each of us to maintain our egos without getting egotistical. Looking forward to chatting about this when we finally meet at Blogger Social ... especially given all the "egos" that will be there. ;-)

Now I've added Guy's book to my Amazon wish list (which, btw, is 4 pages long), I'm also in the middle of reading 4 books. Perhaps I have the start thing down pat -- can someone write a book about finishing? I'd do it, but you know...
