This Week on the Rainey Radar

Radar ImageHere’s my weekly round-up of people, places and resources that inspired and energized me. In one way or another they each relate to integrated marketing, customer experience or leadership.

John Wall and Christopher Penn are the hosts of the Marketing Over Coffee podcast. Each podcast features their commentary on current trends and happenings within marketing, business, social media and more. They also interview some today’s leading voices.

Michael Hyatt launched his This is Your Life podcast this week. In the first episode he outlines the ten steps he’s developed in creating his highly trafficked and subscribed to blog. It’s an excellent primer for those new to blogging and a great reminder of some of the basics that need to happen with every blog post.

Great leaders are always learning – as the saying goes, “leaders are readers”. Today leaders aren’t just readers but they are listeners and watchers as well – continually soaking up great information to help them become even better at leading. Chris LoCurto has some great teaching on his blog and the Entreleadership podcast. Chris is a Vice President with Dave Ramsey’s company and provides some great insight and encouragement. He even retweeted a tweet of mine earlier this week!

Enjoy – let me know what you found that inspired you this week.
