What Happens if You Have Open Hours to Talk to Your Site Visitors?

On the 24th of December, I wrote a post "Happy holidays. Let's have a Skype chat."

It's something I'd thought about doing for a while. Hey, why don't I take open hours to chat with people, and offer my take on anything a person is interested in. I've had a few other bloggers and website runners express curiosity with how it went, hence, this post -

The Good -

I connected with a lot of interesting people. In the guidelines to that post, I wrote "I blocked out 20 minutes for each call, so it might be a good idea to pick one or two things you’re working on or curious about before we get on the phone, because it could go fast" - most people did, in fact, have a couple items when they called, and we wound up covering a lot of interesting ground.

I wasn't sure how 20 minutes would work, but it worked surprisingly well. There was minimal chit-chat and how-are-ya's at the start, which is cool. I've never been a fan of smalltalk, and have always made an effort to move past it into interesting things as quickly as possible in real life.

Lessons in Business Travel

On Imported Blog

Over the last couple of years, I've gone from someone who rarely traveled to feeling like the airport is my second home. Below are some of my biggest business travel takeaways that will help turn your travel experiences from mundane to enjoyable!

1. Join all rewards programs!

Make sure you get points for every plane you fly, train you ride, car you rent, and hotel you stay in. The points may take a while to accumulate, especially if you aren't loyal to particular providers, but you'll have free flights, rides, rentals, and stays before you know it.

2. Dress like a professional.
