s, Business Analysts, Project Managers and OCM - Organiz.Change Mgmt.
We (my wife and I ) started a business partnership with an Ex Accenture Business Dev'l Manager 2.5 years going on 3 now placing contractors as 1099/C2C hourly that has been a good recurring revenue producer and what I see as a longtime commitment from both parties. I am looking to do that in some other areas of the country as well if possible.
We're focusing on increasing our portfolio in the renewable energy arena because I think with the new gov't in place this is going to be a hotter field than it is already and it's going to focus on Transmission issues (like Transmission engineers)
We encourage split business to add to income and create new relationships that not only become friends but also business partners for as long as we are alive or in business or both of course. I don't see myself as retiring in this business as long as I can read, type, speak.
I feel that it was a higher power than me that decided this was a way for me to change/touch many peoples lives for the better, and I will continue to work this business until I cannot do it anymore - on a semi-retired basis someday of course, but we have a lot of years left in us before that hopefully.
I would like to see this as a group of people brought together that participate. I've joined some other groups that I don't see much participation in and am seriously looking to downsize my groups within a year or so if activity doesn't pick up. I'm selective on adding people to my network, trying to focus on connections that will be productive. We've only got one chance in this life so I have rejected several invitations because I couldn't see the benefit for either party really. I know this is a social network, but I want to make the most of the time I have on this planet, I mean that in a nice way, but there is only so much time we can throw at everything we are involved in.

eading this on your off time, but if you have not added renewable energy into your portfolio, I think after reading this article you might want to consider it at least as a potential growth area. For the quick spin, look at page 13 and I think you will see why I brought this to attention with the Midwest Recruiters.
Some other research I've done strongly points out that we've also got to figure out a way to distribute the energy from one location to the others that need it. (in the utility industry, this is what we are calling the Transmissions department) As you see on the map, there is some distance where you build the wind turbine and where you send the energy and right now we have to figure out something that will allow it to transfer without losing it's power strength. (Personally I think maybe if they could set up some storage locations and pump the energy in short distances and store then somehow build up it's strength and shoot it out to another station until it reaches the area that needs the energy) Another thought is if we could build some storage device on a truck/train and transport it without losing it's level - maybe sun panels on top of the truck/train to keep the levels up during transportation to the storage location. I've got too many spikes going on in my head right now ;-) Feel free to contact me if you think you want to get serious about this sector of the business. IMO we are going to have to work together to make this a successful venture because I think if the new gov't signs onto this as it looks like they will, this is going to be a big trough everyone is going to line up to feed out of and it will be very competitive to find talent.
*NOTE* I've only researched this about 2 -3 weeks seriously so far and made about 25 calls to potential clients and I should know next week if I get 2 of them signed up to work with me. One COO told me they had already hired 10 people from a firm this year they were working with and they are a smaller player in the market. Now take that figure and x 3-5 decent sized clients and I think you would have a good book of business going for you. You could go the way of Wind/Solar/Water for renewable and there are a huge number of areas to expand your services (Engineering, Transmission, Construction, Proj.Mgmt, Technology, Regulatory, Science and much, much more)
Summary - If you have doubts about this sector of business, turn on your TV or read a newspaper, it's spoken/written of daily - but think about where the energy came from for you to be able to read this ;-) Enjoy…
cent purchase - four new tires and yes, the note was hand-written. At 50,000 miles, I needed to have my transmission checked, fluid drained and refilled. I failed to keep that appointment; I am now paying the price as I face transmission trouble and the potential of an extended warranty not being honored because I didn't do what was necessary 20,000 miles ago. Are you keeping track of your service history? How come our careers didn't come with a service booklet like our car? With boxes to check off as maintenance is successfully completed? How about a warning light that blinks when excesses have been reached or depletions occur?
When was the last time you checked your turn signals? Do your clients/HMs know when a change of direction is necessary, when further interaction is required in order to gain the most knowledge of the company & position or do you ignore those following your lead and just make haphazard turns hoping to hit the right street, landing at your destination in one piece, unscathed? Have you had your speedometer calibrated lately? Checked your brakes for wear? If you drive so mindlessly and out of control that you can't slow down to make the right move without crashing, what purpose does that fulfill? When sense of direction is lost, so is principle and ability to properly function. One must be able to slow down, evaluate a situation or issue and calculate the right move, the right turn, in order to align goals and objectives. When was the last time you had your fluids checked or replaced your sparkplugs ? Changed out your battery? Everyone has to set aside time to re-charge. Explore a pastime, take a mini-vacation or visit a local museum. Re-charge! Life and work have to balance... too heavy on the side of work and the wear and tear on your vehicle may be too much to repair. Rarely does work/life balance come with an extended warranty.
Save time and money in the long run -- Schedule regular maintenance. by rayannethorn .…
thinking about it.
Marketing, advertising and PR firms sell social media in a way that's almost unethical. I think about what it takes to truly go "viral" with a campaign... and it's not 140 character to a following of 15,000- 15% or less of whom actually stay current with any one format of social media.
I would like to know what the appropriate metrics are for social media and how we go about determining those. Does a $130,000 (actual quote) allocation of budget to subscribe to LinkedIn's feature set for recruiters/sourcing pay off in the end and how do we determine that? How many hires does it take? Say everyone who is hired based on a lead/source from LinkedIn is measured from a referral bonus standpoint - LinkedIn would need to provide 26 critical hires ($5k referral each), 43 senior hires ($3k referral each), 86 mid hires ($1.5k referral each, 173 entry/service hires ($750 referral each), or any combination of that.
Will LinkedIn provide those kinds of numbers just to break even? No. Will they make the life span of a requisition shorter - maybe, but not even a small percentage of the time.
Twitter is free. One hour a day, three days a week using Tweetdeck (free) or Sprout Social ($9/month) could provide one-two weeks of tweeting for any organization utilizing scheduled reoccurring tweet options. Those platforms aslo work with Facebook groups and profiles, and LinkedIn profiles (hopefully groups soon too). Soooo, you tell me... should marketing, advertising, and/or PR firms have their hands in the social media cookie jar? My answer is no way.…
