The Anatomy Of A Social Media Like — Why Do People Hit Like On A Post? &Raquo; 12Wb5X4Ew2Qldlmoj22Cszw

The anatomy of a social media like — why do people hit like on a post? Me when I look at LinkedIn Recently I downloaded my data from LinkedIn to see what my biggest posts of all time were. As an analytical person, I was curious to see if there was a pattern, something I could learn from in terms of improving my posts. Regular readers will know that I like a bit of LinkedIn but, as I wrote last week, LinkedIn is more of a journal than a marketing tool for me as I love being able to document my life, sharpen my own thinking and it allows me to look back at all I have experienced (who knows... Continue Reading

Why Linkedin, For Me, Is More A Journal Than It Is A Marketing Tool &Raquo; 1Crlwhbvketvyg 5R Rmdqg

This is not my desk nor hands “You need to post less” said the LinkedIn expert I spoke to this week. “The algorithm doesn’t like it when you post so much.” He was referring to the fact that the previous week I had been posting on average 3 times a day. Consideration of the algorithm may be important for some but it’s only really relevant if the only thing that is important to you is views, likes and other such aspects. I long ago came to realise that there is more to life on LinkedIn than just trying to be the most popular person out there. How my LinkedIn usage has evolved over time When... Continue Reading

“Feed The Beast And The Beast Will Feed You” — 3 Linkedin Examples From My Week That Emphasise Why… &Raquo; 1Fxoxxthejjiqjtbizk97Yq

“Feed the beast and the beast will feed you” — 3 LinkedIn examples from my week that emphasise why doing this effectively increases my surface area of luck John Amaechi is such a lovely man but how did I end up meeting him? Read on… Last year I took part in a interview with a class of British school kids in what was billed as “An Inspiring Talk From An Entrepreneur”. Each student got to ask me one question and I was prepared for a range of hard hitting questions. The students did not disappoint, and one in particular has come to mind a lot recently, especially when I talk... Continue Reading

Every relationship has a half-life; what are you doing to maintain yours?

Every Relationship Has A Half-Life; What Are You Doing To Maintain Yours? &Raquo; 1Sm

This is what you get when you ask BingChat to create an image of half life in relation to friendships Somehow I ended up spending over 12 hours of my Saturday writing emails. That’s longer than I spend working on most work days; so why did I do it? What were the emails about? They were emails to all my key clients, connections and former work colleagues giving them my yearly New Year’s greetings. I used to do it as a Christmas card but switched to a New Year message a few years back because I found myself too busy at Christmas and because the people receiving it were being inundated by other... Continue Reading

Why my 2023 failures, rather than my successes, are the things that will drive me more in 2024

Why My 2023 Failures, Rather Than My Successes, Are The Things That Will Drive Me More In 2024 &Raquo; 1Iezwt Vfvrejrkeseminwg

GenAI helped me with an image of a panda dwelling over failure whilst everyone around him is cheerful It’s the morning of the first working Monday of 2024 and I have chosen to spend it writing my first blog of the year, but what should the topic be? This time of year there’s a lot written about resolutions, that could be a topic. Are you a resolutions kind of person? I’m not and I’ve already written about that topic 2 years ago so this blog will not be about that; plus many of you may have already given up on your resolutions anyway I am a person who loves setting myself goals and,... Continue Reading

Getting under the skin of what it takes to run a small consulting firm: My 2023 in numbers

Getting Under The Skin Of What It Takes To Run A Small Consulting Firm: My 2023 In Numbers &Raquo;

Shiageto is like this puppy; exhausted after the year we’ve had but excited for our growth next year 😊 It’s the final day of 2023 and it’s at this time of year that people reflect on how their year has panned out. For me, the founder of an innovative consulting firm that specialises on strategic effectiveness, it’ been a hell of a year. Parking for one moment all the ups and downs in my personal life [the conflict in Palestine, getting evicted and a stop-start love-life being some of those “highlights”]; it’s been quite a year for Shiageto Consulting. A year in numbers A... Continue Reading

Why deciding who pays for coffee or a meal in business and dating really can be a minefield

Why Deciding Who Pays For Coffee Or A Meal In Business And Dating Really Can Be A Minefield &Raquo; 1Jk3Rvld6Txso1Lk1Lgne0W

How much for a coffee?? There are times when my culture and my business sense clash None more so than when it comes to paying for meals and coffees. Why is this a thing? As a start-up founder, who also happens to be single, I go for a lot of coffees and meals; either they are as part of business development or on a date [I can assure you both are as enjoyable as each other 🙂]. Either way, I want them to go well so a key consideration is who pays for the coffee or the meal. The Arab upbringing in me is screaming that I should pay; it would be disrespectful (on so many levels) to let the... Continue Reading

Startup Life In The Time Of Corona/Recession, Lesson 8: Life And Happiness &Raquo; 1Pp0My9Tsccunriynlggvlw

Start-up life in the time of Corona/recession, Lesson 8: Life and Happiness AI did not help with creating this picture This is a reprint of a classic blog that I wrote in July 2020 when I first started my company Shiageto Consulting. Enjoy! In this series, I share with you some of the key learnings I have had from my first 6 months of launching my first start-up (Shiageto Consulting) and how those lessons are applicable for the challenges my business is facing during this pandemic crisis (and any business at any time in fact) The initial challenge I often talk about my start-up journey using... Continue Reading

Eq Reflections: We All Set The Tone For The Conversations We Are About To Have; We Just Don’t… &Raquo; 1Ok Dpg5Gphgxiezthpleza

EQ reflections: We all set the tone for the conversations we are about to have; we just don’t necessarily realise it Today I wrote 2 birthday cards; both were blank inside so I could have written absolutely anything. What I wrote really influenced the conversation that followed and that’s the same in life Did you know that if you ask someone to name the 7 dwarves or the 7 deadly sins, apparently the order they list them in is linked to what’s on their mind and which of those traits they most currently associate with. So, if your respondent says “Sleepy” or “gluttony” for example... Continue Reading

What I’ve Learnt From Running My Start-Up Business That Also Applies To My Dating Life &Raquo; 1 Pk I3Qw32Daz4Ry307Wka

What shall I click on next? 🤔 It’s Sunday and I’m staring at my inbox; there’s not many messages to go through but even so I can’t be bothered; my heart’s just not in it. Still, I tell myself if you don’t reply then you’ll never make any progress on your goal and this is important to you. For once, I’m not talking about my work emails and my non-stop pursuit of new business for Shiageto Consulting. Nope, the inbox I am referring to is the one on Hinge (the dating app). Hang on a minute; are you talking about your personal life? It’s true, I don’t blog much about my personal... Continue Reading
