What’s the main reason why some people are more likeable than others? You know, that kind of people that everyone wants to hang out with. I’m sure there are a lot of reasons for that. Although I’m not an expert in social behaviour, I’ve read a bunch of books on the subject. My conclusion is that people are more likeable when they make others feel special. You know, the people who make you feel comfortable during a conversation by asking the right questions and engaging with your interests. Think about it. Would you like somebody who only talks about himself
I am a huge procrastinator. If I’ve learned anything, it is how to differentiate between EXCUSE and BARRIER. Let me tell you the difference between them, based on my own story. Did you know that I am from Spain? I am. I started learning English when I was 29 —I’m 34 as I write this. Twenty-nine is pretty late in life to learn a new language. Anyway. At the time I decided to write my blog and start building a business following The Content Way, I was unable to write more than 400 words. So I was building my website,
“Working online must be amazing!” This is what a guy told me some time ago. We were at a bar having some drinks, because it was somebody’s birthday. It was one of those situations where you’re chatting with a friend of a friend and comes up the question: “So what do you do?” I was focused on my international trade consultancy business at the time. So I explained what I was doing. I said: “Basically, I am based here in the UK, my clients are in Spain, and I provide them with market intelligence reports about Latin American markets. You

Ok, I’ll teach you in this post how to GET TO ANYONE ON LINKEDIN. And I am going to show you how my reaching out Tony Robbins, so you’ll be able to contact whoever you want.
I’m surprised at how many people don’t know about the LinkedIn Publishing platform (or LinkedIn Pulse). Did I say surprised? Sorry, I forgot I was talking about LinkedIn, which is probably the most counterintuitive social platform out there. Let’s be honest: they’ve built an amazing platform (my favourite one), but they have a lot to improve in terms of usability. Actually, that’s good news if you’re considering paying attention to this social platform. LinkedIn is not just a social media platform – it’s a content platform, too. If you do your homework, you can use LinkedIn to stand out as
I was recently re-reading Ramit Sethi’s book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich. I love re-reading good books. I always find something new or something I missed on my first reading or that now has a completely different meaning for me. Does the same thing ever happen to you? Anyway, I was reading a chapter where Ramit talks about the differences between frugal and cheap people from a personal finance context. This was a great approach. By the way, if you don’t know Ramit, he teaches people how to achieve a “rich life” (not all about money) by applying
I love my mum. But I admit it: when I was young, something about her drove me crazy when I went out for shopping with her. Let me give you some context – and I promise it’ll relate to how to create a content roadmap. A few years ago, I used to go with my mum to buy new clothes. I was a student then. Sounds fair, right?

LinkedIn is all about authority, credibility and building relationships. But the truth is, few people pay attention to those things – not, at least, in the right way. And let’s be honest: LinkedIn is not an easy social network to understand. I’ve said that LinkedIn is about authority, credibility and building relationships, but if you think about it, our personal relationships are based on the same fundamentals.
