Blogging Isn’t Dead

You can read (ironically) a blog post every day or so telling you that blogging is dead. They tell you to write into Facebook notes or into Medium or anywhere but on your own blog. They tell you that no one visits blogs any more. And whoever “they” is have lost tons and tons of […] The post Blogging Isn’t Dead appeared first on

Influencer Marketing – Simple Rules to Make It Better

I’ve had the pleasure to work with many different companies on several influencer marketing projects over the years. Some were really well run and excellent and others felt like they weren’t a great fit (my problem, more than theirs). Show More Summary


I’m at an interesting time in my career. Everything I’m “most known for” is mostly stuff from between 2006 and 2009, and though I’ve continued to be in the public eye and adding lots and lots of value where I can, it’s not like I’ve delivered any next BIG thing that has people talking. People […] The post Definition appeared first on

Sugar – I Had No Idea

I’m writing this to tell you about beliefs, and how dangerous it can be to believe something. I’m not writing this to tell you to make any kind of changes in your eating habits. I want you to know this because I love sugar, things made with sugar, and I love all the fake sugars […] The post Sugar – I Had No Idea appeared first on

Get Your Voice Out There

I got back from my fourth trip out to Social Media Marketing World (run by Mike Stelzner and team) and had a blast. I also came back quite inspired. Though I rail against “social media” quite often these days, I caught the thread of what it should REALLY be doing for us. It’s about making […] The post Get Your Voice Out There appeared first on

The Secrets of My Success

I’m sitting at the airport in San Diego after speaking at Social Media Marketing World, one of two events with “social” in the name that I actually like. It’s not that I like the event. I like the people. I like who I get to talk with here. It’s a wild kind of “just for […] The post The Secrets of My Success appeared first on

The Real Secret to How I Got Started

Busy is a Trap

Every Monday, I shoot a little video to the members of my Owner Insider group to help them in some way. We’re on a mission in there: to help you put more wins on your board. I wanted to share one of my “Monday Nudge” videos to show you what that looks like, but also […] The post Busy is a Trap appeared first on

Dear Papa Ginos – You Stink

Dear Papa Ginos – You stink. I ordered via your website, because you think that’s a great idea. First, it’s not a very good ordering system. But that’s not the big annoyance. Your email back to me said you’d have the food here in about 30 minutes (you gave a specific time). A few minutes […] The post Dear Papa Ginos – You Stink appeared first on

Restart and Restart Again

Why do people look at failures as such a bad thing? Why not look at it as feedback. “Well, that didn’t work. Now what?” That’s the magic pair of sentences, by the way. That gives you something that so many people overlook: your invitation to restart. Show More Summary

Get Dealstorming

My buddy Tim Sanders just launched Dealstorming today. It’s an amazing book about how to deal with sales from a guy who’s helped some really big companies (and some smaller and medium sized ones) do some great work. I read the book, and spoke with Tim (podcast episode coming in just a moment) and it’s […] The post Get Dealstorming appeared first on

One More Word about Staples (Not Sponsored)

This post isn’t sponsored. I’m only posting it because I was thinking about another company and how they operate pretty much the exact opposite of Staples, and it made me want to write this to you. The Best Allies Think Ahead FOR You I just saw an ad for a high speed Internet provider. Show More Summary

Sponsored – Good Business Support is Priceless

The following is a post sponsored by Staples, but every word of it is mine and my opinion, etc. They are a partner of mine because I love the company and have for years. But the post? It’s a me, Mario! Here’s a strange situation: people come to me often and say “I’m not really […] The post Sponsored – Good Business Support is Priceless appeared first on

Get Small Town Smart

When you walk down the main street of any small town, you’ll see businesses with signs showing this or that service available for people, plus shops of various kinds. Why do people think it would be any different online? If it’s not obvious what you do to help others, why are they going to spend […] The post Get Small Town Smart appeared first on

The Good Old Days

How to Achieve Your Goals

People ask me quite often how they can achieve their goals. They start off great, but then something happens and they peter out. They fall off the path. They break their ten or fifteen day streak. So, how do you keep going and start seeing wins on your goals? How to Achieve Your Goals I’m […] The post How to Achieve Your Goals appeared first on

Chris Brogan and Owner Media Group in 2016

It’s okay if we lose track of each other from time to time. I know that keeping up is a full time job in this world, and one that most of us don’t really have. To make it easier, I wanted to give you an update on me, my business, and what’s going on in […] The post Chris Brogan and Owner Media Group in 2016 appeared first on

The Rise of Personal Leadership

The biggest shift I’ve seen in business over the last handful of years is the rise of “do it yourself” leadership. As companies have streamlined by reducing mid-tier management, people are finding themselves in the situation of having to make more and more decisions on their own and take on more responsibility in the process.

Habits – It’s Not What You Think

A lot of folks are starting off their year with a bright smile and a look of determination. They’re posting their “three in a row” photos and their “back at it” statements. That’s all wonderful. We need a few extra steps, if you want to be talking about those habits at the end of the […] The post Habits – It’s Not What You Think appeared first on
