Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - How do You Know?

« Amazon's Secret to Online Dominance | Main | Don't Script, Improvise »


Success, for me, comes from listening but then forming ideas around what I have heard. I find that a conversation creates ideas that can be melded like clay -- one simple thing I have heard, and talked to someone about creates an image or idea that snowballs into a new idea -- that I bounce back and keep forming.

I posted the same video but a completely different take. I am interested not in SM only but how entrepreneurs RESPOND (taking action is one of your themes , right?) and I posted a little story about a cafe owner who did just that.

Feedback is what tells me that I'm successful, primarily when people thank me for what I do. This applies not just to my business/professional life, but to my personal/social life as well. (I say that because many people think of them separately, but, for me, they're actually one and the same.)

If people are thanking me, then I know I'm doing good stuff...helping folks and being of service.

And that brings me a great sense of peace. And that's the success I want.
