How to ask people what they do

You will come across as more interesting if you ask the question this way.

So how do you spend your time when you aren't __________________?
The blank should be something relevant to context, environment or something that you know about them. Examples:
So how do you spend your time when you aren't writing fascinating blog posts?
So how do you spend your time when you aren't on Facebook?
So how do you spend your time when you aren't hanging out with beautiful women?
So how do you spend your time when you aren't at the gym?

Magnanimous Conversation Stealing

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

This has probably happened to you before; you are discussing something, someone else jumps in and makes the topic you are discussing all about them. This is called conversation stealing and its annoying, if you do it wrong.

The correct way to do it is to make an emotional deposit before the steal and then make an emotional deposit at the end the steal. That way you are keeping the attention high throughout and you don't look like a jerk for stealing the conversation. Example:
Chris: So my kid is just doing awesome at football practice.
Me: That's great. I definitely know where he gets his work ethic from! My kid is just got his black belt in Karate and is traveling to Korea for a student exchange program. Since you've traveled abroad extensively in Asia can you give me some suggestions to give to him?
As you can see here I made an emotional deposit first by complimenting Chris and his kid, I stole the conversation and then I linked it right back to him and made another emotional deposit.

The 'Group Merger'

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

If you are at a party or social event there will be multiple groups of people standing around chatting. Over the course the event you will migrate between different groups.

 

As you see one of your previous groups in the physical proximity to your current group invite them to join together. Make a joke about this if appropriate:
I have some more friends over here to introduce you all to, can arrange I get a merger & acquisition of our groups?
You are going to be excellent at remembering names, since you are going to read our this article How to Remember Names, you will know the names of everyone in each group and can introduce everyone. This makes you look like a true social Rockstar and sets you up as the dominant leader of both groups. Actually being able to pull this off will increase your social proof by about a 10,000%.

Quote Stuff

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

From each book you read pick out at least one insightful line to quote. This is actually one of the most powerful things you can do to impress people; it shows you are coachable, have your mindset in the right place, are actively improving yourself and are wise. Here's a few of my favorite quotes, feel free to steal them!

- "What the mind can conceive & believe it can achieve"
Napoleon Hill
- "You are more likely to die of indigestion of too much opportunity than starvation of too little" & "Good is the enemy of great."
Jim Collins, 'From Good to Great'
- "When making decisions I listen first to my gut instinct, than I get everyone's opinion on the matter who I respect. Then I mentally leave the decision. Don't think about it hours or days. Give my subconscious the opportunity to analysis the decision. Then when I am in a clear state of mind I return to the decision and go with whatever my gut instinct is."
Paraphrasing the billionaire decision making technique by Donald Trump
- "I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self."
Aristotle
"I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times... It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential." - Bruce Lee
Using quotes really is simple easy thing to do that makes you seem significantly smarter (Along with actually making you genuinely smarter!). I also recommend the website www.BrainyQoute.com.

Dress to Win

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

This is very, very important; make it a point to be the very best dressed person in office. It's said that you should dress for the job you want not the job you have, I'm going to take this a step further and say dress like your boss's boss.

Practice Power Body Language

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Confident Stride - As you walk; inhale deeply so that your chest rises slightly. Move your shoulders back. Also slow down your walk some, feel your center of gravity and visualize yourself gliding.

Room Entry - When you walk into a room stand in or near the doorway for a moment and survey the scene. Most people when entering a room will march directly over to a bar, table or whatever. This makes you stand out and commands attention.
Take Up Space – Keep your legs spread (just for gentlemen!), keep your shoulders back with your arms spread out if you are going to put your hands together
Mirroring - This is a body language technique where you mirror the body language of the person you are interacting with. If they put their hands on the table, put your hands on the table. If they rest their elbow on their seat, rest your elbow on your seat. Mirroring should be used with strategic timing though, do not mirror them 100% of the time. Mirror them to build rapport when they say something you like.
Using your hands – The power position for your hands, while sitting at a table is together with your fingertips touching (photo)
Upper Back Pat – In more social settings, as you are passing by a friend or joining a conversation circle, lightly pat your friend on the upper back or shoulder. This is casual way of showing affection that also shows your dominance. Think of a proud dog owner caressing lightly caressing the back of his noble hound. Make sure there is some verbal communication to go along with this. This is more for social situations and less for the office.

Cold Calling Phone Script for getting through the Gatekeeper

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

In my experience you can usually find out who the decision maker is in about 60 seconds using Google or quickly browsing through the company's website...

Call Corporate Office:
Hello Stacy (admin assistant's name), how are you today? I'm Jonathan Roseland and I'm calling in regards to marketing. Is the person in charge of that type of thing at your office?
If you know the name of the decision maker:
Hello Stacy (admin assistant's name), how are you today? I'm Jonathan Roseland; I'm calling for Dave Johnson (Decision makers' name). Is he available?
I find when dealing with small to mid-sized companies this line works great b/c the directness and use of my last name subtle indicates that the decision maker knows who I am already. It's important to deliver it with a confident intonation. A lot of the time they will connect you right to the decision maker
Leaving a voicemail:
Hello Dave, this is Jonathan Roseland, my number is XXX-XXX-XXXX, please give me a call back at your convenience.
This voicemail message will get you a call back 50%-70% of the time compared with 10%-20% of the call backs you get when you describe your product. While some might consider it slightly misleading since I'm not telling them what my call is about, I've used this message for years and I can't think of time when my prospect was made at me or felt mislead when they called back.

iGoogle-Craigslist Job Search Dashboard

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Craigslist.org has more jobs than any other destination online. Save time by using a free iGoogle account to set up a dashboard that instantaneously feeds you exactly the kinds of jobs you are looking for.


Using Craigslist to set up the ultimate job search monitor.
setup igoogle1. Set up an iGoogle Account
iGoogle is a customizable home page browser dashboard. You will need a Gmail account. Head over to http://www.google.com/ig to set up your free dashboard.
addtab_thumb2. Create Tabs
On the left side of the screen you will see the home tab. Click on it, then click on the little drop down arrow, click Add a tab. Name this tab something like Job Search Monitor.
Craigslist Real Estate Monitor3. Get the Craigslist Monitor
Now we want to add a gadget that will feed us our Job Search listings off CL. Click Add a Gadget button in the upper right hand of the iGoogle dashboard. I recommend the Craigslist Monitor. Click add it now and you will now see it in your iGoogle Job Search Tab. I recommend adding 3-5 of these gadgets to the Job Search tab.
4. Get CL Search URLs
CLSearchURLsthumbNow it's time to head over the Jobs for rent section of craigslist for your city. In the search field enter some criteria of what you are looking for, such as; industry, job title, full time, qaulifications, etc. You will notice that each result creates a unique URL address. For example, a search for 'Denver tech sales' produces this URL: http://denver.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=Denver+tech+sales&srchType=A
What's really cool is that as new jobs are added to CL that match this search description this URL page will update to show the new jobs instantaneously. Find 3-5 search phrases that target the kind of job you want.
Real Estate Feeds iGoogle5. Add the Job Feeds to iGoogle
Now go back to your Job Search iGoogle tab and click the little drop down gear button in the upper right hand corner of the Craigslist Monitor gadget, click Edit settings. For Title enter a short description of feed (Denver Tech Sales), for URL enter the complete URL address you got from the search you did in step 4 (make sure to include the http://). Click save and voila! Now a real time feed of the most recently added jobs matching the search are going to be in your iGoogle dashboard.
While this might sound a little complicated to set up it's actually pretty easy to do and it saves you a huge amount of time over searching through CL's job section. It takes literally a few seconds to glance at your iGoogle dashboard and see the new jobs posted in the last few days or hours. A few other things to keep in mind:
• Respond immediately to postings that you are interested in. Craigslist's jobs section gets a huge amount of traffic so you can be sure that a lot of other people will see the job you a interested in. The faster you can contact the employer the better your chances are of getting it. If a listing contains a phone number always call that directly after sending your resume.

Dirty Trick FlaggingDirty Trick: If you see a particularly good job come across your job search monitor you may want to minimize your competition. After you respond to the CL posting you may want to flag (upper right of the CL posting) it so that CL deletes the posting. Flag it from your browser, then use a website like Pagewash.com to block your IP address and flag it again, you may also want to flag it from your smartphone browser or a friends computer to ensure it gets removed from Craigslist.

    How to Get Free Supplements or Nootropics

    By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

    Nootropics, supplements or Vitamins can make an important difference in your health and state of mind. They can also be expensive and a lot of times you don't know if they will work for you until after you try them.

    While there are some better ways to determine if a supplement is credible, if you want try Nootropic or supplements completely for free here's two ways.

    Start a supplement blog and write a review. The perception of supplements depends highly upon the reviews they get on supplement blogs. You can get a blog for free requiring a minimal amount of tech skills through Wordpress.org, Tumblr or blogger.com. Once you have your blog set up reach out to supplement providers via email and ask them if they want to send you a product sample in exchange for an honest review on your site.

    Become an affiliate. Many supplement companies have affiliate programs that pay commissions to people who market them. A lot of times they will send completely free or discounted monthly supplies of their product to their affiliate.

    Or better yet combine both methods! Enjoy the free supplements!

    How to be Dependable and Reliable: 7 Life Hacks for Phantom Consistency

    By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

    dependability life hacksThis article will reveal an effortless shift you can make in your communication habits, along with 7 life hacks, that will make others perceive you as a highly consistent, reliable and dependable person. Also learn what Bruce Lee had to say about being consistent and reliable.

    In business, social and personal situations consistency is a highly attractive quality.Attractice Qaulity Consistency and dependability are increasingly rare character traits In our chronically distracted high tech society where we are constantly bombarded by mild amusements that voraciously consume our time and attention. Dependability is debatably the most important quality in business; I remember when I first started in the business world at the age of 19 at a car dealership my manager explained to me that the dealership would rather have sales people who sold a consistent amount of cars every month as opposed to sales people who sold 25 cars one months and then 7 the next. In our personal relationships we all seek friends who will show up when they say they will to help us move and we abhor friends who say bad things about us behind our backs. If you've ever had someone stand you up on a date you know how unattractive and hurtful flakiness; the opposite of consistency is. In virtually all domains consistent people are much more desired by society. Imagine if everyone you met either wanted to hirer you, do business with you, be your friend or help you? Being perceived as a consistent person is huge step towards this.

To worsen the offense of commuting it robs us of 5-10 hours of what could be our very most productive times; early mornings and late afternoons before dinner, these are time slots that could be much better served day planning, eating healthy, reading, writing, working on entrepreneurial projects, spending time with loved ones or staying fit. In addition to it's immense cost in time, commuting is often a quite stressful activity, things like traffic jams, rude drivers or missing one's bus or train will definitely spike your stress levels.

    Pavlovian Physiological Triggers for Massive Closing Confidence

    By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    
    Sales Confidence Peak States
    Have you ever wished you could instantly summon massive confidence for business or social demands? Imagine a moment when you felt supremely confident, accomplished and content, how great would it be if you could biohack your mind-body connection to recreate that sensation at just the moments you needed it the most? This article will present a pretty simple technique for doing exactly that using your sense of smell.


    IvanPavlovExperimentIvan Pavlov, who won the Nobel Prize for physiology, famously conducted experiments wherein he conditioned his dogs to salivate like they were excited for food when stimulated by completely different than food. In modern psychology this is referred to as Pavlovian conditioning or respondent conditioning. You can use the same triggering mechanism to bring yourself into a state of confidence before a job interview, sales call, public speaking, social demanding situation or even a date.
