Best Blogs in September: Career Advice, Marketing Tips and Competitive Intelligence

This is my 34th post in a series of monthly features that I have dubbed “Best of My Blog Roll.” The concept is simple – at the end of a month I peruse my own blog roll (see that column on the right) for material created by other bloggers that I think is most worthy of sharing with others, and then I report on it here.

For the month of September 2015, I have chosen to highlight three blog posts:

  1. A post by Cordell Parvin on the Cordell Parvin blog, entitled “Your Career: What Really Matters Is What You Do With It.” I love this post because it is all about what is really going to matter at the end of a life well lived.  Sometimes, we get so busy keeping score with revenue and profitability that we forget why we ever set out on a given career path. This post puts it all into perspective, and I particularly love the quote from C.S. Lewis: “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of your self less often.”
  2. A post by Mandy Edwards on the ME Marketing Services blog, entitled “35 Marketing Tips to Get or Keep Your Business Going.” As Mandy often does on her blog, she presents in this post a nice checklist of simple but practical, and often fun things that anyone can do to turn up the dial on revenue.
  3. A post by Patrick Johansen on his Patrick on Pricing blog, entitled “The Importance of Intelligence” (as in “competitive intelligence”). Patrick offers a great breakdown on the elements of competitive intelligence and their relationship to competitive pricing. His “quick quotes” section at the end of the piece provides some good bulletin board material as well.

Those are my choices for the best blog posts in September on legal service and marketing. Please feel free to share with me your own thoughts on best blogs and best posts at any time.
