Look What I Stumbled Upon This Week

  • Sharebar

This week we look at leadership, branding, social media marketing strategies, how Christians are handling their finances, and whether some Christians need to tone down their online comments.  All of the sites are new this week , so I hope you find a resource you haven’t seen before.

If you’re new to this series, every week I share my favorite links from bloggers that I have Stumbled Upon during the week.

These links will feature resources for blogging and social media, as well as, great posts on incorporating our Christianity into our businesses and the marketplace.  There may even be some random stuff that makes you laugh.

Fill up that coffee mug, and let’s see what I Stumbled Upon this week.

Christian Entrepreneurs

Here’s the best posts I found this week to help you run your business.

5 Examples of Leading Outside the Norm

Ron Edmondson shares some great insights on how to be a more effective leader.  I liked his point about giving your team ownership in the vision.

Personal Brands: A Cup of Coffee to Differentiation

What differentiates you from your competition?  Dan Schwabel gives some interesting ways for you to find out the answer.  It’s a  30 minute exercise that can be a real eye opener if you haven’t done this with your business before.

Digital Footprints

Here’s the best posts I found this week to help with your blogging and social media use.

How to Avoid the Social Media Catch-22

Determining the return on investment (ROI) for social media campaigns is still rather difficult.  Changing the perception that results come with no investment or just by logging on and posting updates is even harder.  Tia Peterson walks you through a few tactics that should be in every social media marketing strategy.

How Social Media Drives New Business: Six Case Studies

From a street car vendor who only advertises on Twitter to huge corporations like Starbucks, these six businesses are experiencing success with their social media marketing strategies.   What can you learn from their example?

Marketplace Christianity

Here’s the best posts I found this week mixing our Christian faith, the workplace, and personal finances.

Survey: Living on Less, Christians Still Giving, Avoiding Debt

I really want to believe the results of this poll; however, they just seem too out of the norm.  In most surveys, Christians tends to fall in line with the rest of the nation on how they handle their finances – poorly.  If we’re following Biblical financial principles then this headline should describe us.

Tidbits & Random Stuff

Here’s the best posts I found for the week that were humorous, touching, thought-provoking, or just plain weird.

Too Much Grace

Jon Acuff respond to a harsh comment he received in response to an article he wrote for CNN called My Take: Why Christians are Jerks Online. Both are an interesting read, and made me stop and think a bit about how we, as Christians, need to pay closer attention to the digital footprints we’re leaving on the web.

Thanks Brad. It’s an honor to be mentioned here. I admire what you are doing, bringing faith into the workplace. I spent 20+ years in business prior to full-time ministry.

My pleasure. It amazes me that we think as Christians that a little booster shot of faith on Sundays is enough to get us through the work week. Somehow, we need the church to become more active preparing the other 98% of us who don’t join the clergy. It’s nice to see someone like yourself in the pulpit who understands the pressures of the workweek.

A couple of those are pretty long aren’t they? There were two more that I was going to include, but they make these look like summaries. I may need to share those in individual posts. I’m glad you liked these posts, and I hope they were helpful to you.
