    I am now on a blog break and I will have some kind of vacation during July. What will I do during the summer? I will read plenty of books and listen to podcasts on social media and business networking.

    Talking about books, I look forward to read Business Networking and Sex (not what you think) by Ivan Misner, Hazel Walker & Frank De Raffele.

    Preview of Business Networking and Sex Book

    As a Certified Networker® by ReferensAkademin in Gothenburg, Sweden, one of my goals this year is to reach 500+ connections on LinkedIn. I will reach this goal by visualize my LinkedIn network with InMaps and study LinkedInfluence by Lewis Howes.

    It is now a year ago since I interviewed John Cox on my podradio show. EGO Sole Trader has been under a "rough banner" and in a beta stage for some time now. It is time to say: Presto! I have to continue to update several sections of the site on a regular basis, e.g. EGO Links, Kudos and Work In Progress. Do you know about any good calendar widget? I will test Dingbee social calendar and Yahoo! Upcoming Events & Things To Do badge. I hope that Squarespace will include a smart calendar feature in the near future.

    I had a presentation at BNI Quality Hotel Panorama in Gothenburg, Sweden, on April 15, 2011.

    My #BNI presentation ("10 minutes").

    BNI Presentation - 2011-04-15.

    Read Kevin Jarchow's article, The 10-Minute Presentation Formula, and listen to Ivan Misner's podcast, Episode 39: "Making Your Next Presentation Sparkle".





    I will participate at WebCoast on March 18 - 20. It is a so called unconference with an open agenda / schedule that is generated by the participants. Here is a quote from the conference place, Lindholmen Science Park:

    WebCoast is western Sweden’s first member-driven event with a focus on communication, Internet users and web developers. You are not coming to a pre-set agenda with paid lecturers; instead you will be involved in designing the content on location. To be held at the Lindholmen Conference Centre 18-20 March. (, February 4, 2011.)

    I recommend you to read Glenn Reynold's book, An Army of Davids: How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths and Mitch Joel's book, Six Pixels of Separation: Everyone Is Connected. Connect Your Business to Everyone., if you want to understand the power of the world wide web.

    Read Maria Gustafsson's interview (Tea Drinking Podradio Enthusiast) with me. [Editor's note: The text is in Swedish. You could translate it using e.g., Google Translate, Yahoo! Babel Fish, and Babylon.] 

    Here is a video clip, explaining the open agenda / schedule (the grid):
