This past November, I was honored (and thrilled!) to be hand-picked by LinkedIn to share my advice and tactics on leveraging LinkedIn to build thought leadership, boost your brand, grow your network and generate leads as a small business owner, consultant, coach or solo entrepreneur.
If you’d like to get some of the tips I shared with the 150+ folks in attendance, you can check out the LinkedIn Live video of my presentation below. It’s only about 16 minutes, so be sure to make watching this idea-packed video a priority this week. I still can’t believe I squeezed all that I did into the small window of time allotted!
The event was co-hosted by LinkedIn and the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce, which I highly recommend you join if you’re based in Silicon Valley.
Should you decide you’d like to get a closer look, just contact me and I’ll be happy to send along access to the deck I used.
And, yes, you can also contact me if you’d like to get personalized help in learning how you can apply these tips to your own business!

A recent study shared on the PayScale blog had some interesting results that I just had to share.
As a consultant, “you’ll spend over $7,000 a year on marketing: 22 percent of consultants say that they spend most of their time networking, while 38 percent of them say that referrals earn them the most revenue.” Basically, life as a consultant means you’ll need to embrace networking and know how to effectively cultivate referrals from your network.

As a SF Bay Area folks only special, I’m offering a 50 minute career search, brainstorming or business development strategy session for only $50.
I bring fresh ideas, valuable new strategies, keen insights and loads of actionable advice in these sessions and would welcome the opportunity to help you plan for 2011. Maybe you just need to shake things up a bit and get an outside perspective or some new ideas about how to grow your biz or find a job you actually want? Below is what one happy client had to say:
“I recently received marketing & business consulting from Sandy at Bella Domain. Using her services for the first time, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I can truly say that I am very happy with the results of our meeting. I already have significant business experience and I am launching a new venture, but Sandy took me to places I would not have thought of. My time with Sandy was very well spent and I am in the process of working on her recommendations. She provided expert knowledge and great value. I am sure I will be working with Sandy again as my new business progresses. Thanks again Sandy.”
“I went to Sandy for consultation on career and business matters and got more great advice from her in two hours than most people could give in a month. Sandy is very savvy with knowing how to effectively network and use numerous digital and social media platforms to full advantage. She also gave me encouragement and suggestions in pursuing my passion for photography. I now have a beautiful website that features my photos as well as some great advice on how to market them.”

While it’s no secret that I do quite a bit of informal career and life coaching (a friend recently said she referred someone to me saying I was “the best cheerleader in the world” – wow!), I am not a coach and don’t want to play one on TV. I am, however, as another friend said, “A passion hunter.”
My focus is on identifying people that are seriously passionate about their vision (whatever it may be), and then I help them develop execution strategies to realize what’s possible. My mantra is always, “Go figure out what it is YOU want and then come see me so I can help you figure out HOW to get it.” I truly like being on that side of things best. When I’m doing that, I’m in the zone. This can mean only good things for you and what you want.
So, if you need help finding a coach, you can ask me because I do know a few really good ones (or, heck, come meet one at a PIF party), but if you’d like a bigger selection to choose from, check out this site for assistance. You’ll find every class of coach and they’re apparently all pre-screened and somehow vetted. They even offer coaches for people with ADD/ADHD. Hmmmm…in this day of too many gadgets, I know quite a few people that could REALLY use one of those!
