Blogworld comes to New York City Discount of 20% off conference pass 50% off expo pass

Last year I flew out to vegas for one of the best social media conferences I’ve attended – it wasnt strickly focused on twitter but it was blogging, new media, twitter, and every other online topic you can think of… After leaving vegas I was left with the feeling of that being a one time conference – due to distance and cost of travel.   A few weeks later I heard rumors of them making moves towards a NYC blogworld… and so it became Blogworld New Media Expo NYC.

I cant wait… The line up this year of speakers is a whos whos of the social media world.  It might be hard to top last year’s keynote speaker Mr. Scott Stratten – UnMarketing gave a presentantion that just rocked!  So its finally here….  BlogWorld & New Media Expo is right around the corner, May 24-26, taking place at the Javits Center in New York City. This is the world’s largest blogging and social media conference, and it’s known worldwide for presenting internet luminaries and entrepreneurs, the most popular and knowledgeable bloggers, podcasters and social media marketing thought leaders. This year’s event will feature great educational content, so new media content creators and businesses of all kinds will learn the best tips, technologies and methods for growing their brands, audiences and businesses online.

In addition to learning new ways to hone and promote content and brands online, this is THE place to network, look for business opportunities, collaborators, and of course find important resources in the New Media Expo—like new media news and entertainment networks and social communities!

Calling all Entrepreneurs – I’ve got the book for you… The Entrepreneur Equation by Carol Roth

I was sent a copy of Carol Roth’s new book The Entrepreneur Equation to read and review. Carol gives the reader a no holds barred look at what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. This is the book that doesn’t dance around the secret sauce it tells you what you need to put in to make it all work. You can go to business school get your MBA and I would still say you need to read this book.

Why should you even listen to Carol? Carol has an amazing background in not only helping entrepreneurs like you, but she’s helped companies raise over $1 billion in capital. She knows her stuff, which is why MSNBC, FOX Business and many other business outlets consistently feature Carol’s advice.

I believe this book should be required reading for both aspiring and existing business owners.  There is some great stuff going on http://theentrepreneurequation.com including some special offers – say a limited edition doll if you purchase 10 books at a time.  Since I have the feeling you’ll be watching Carol from you’re living room this time next year – it might truly be a great collectors item.

Carol wants entrepreneurs to succeed and while the book might make you a bit discourage you from quitting your day job its all about taking the risk to be an entrepreneur a person who is simultaneously passionate and realistic will do the work laid out in the book can use it to become successful. This is not a get rich quick book, there is no buy 12 sell to 12 and have them sell to their 12 pyramid schemes. This is a book that will challenge you in ways that you may not have thought and because of that it is a good book to read.
