Zorka Kovacevich Marketing, also known as Blog A Business Card creates easy, effective promotional strategies to bring you face-to-face with your most qualified customers who are ready to purchase now! -Zorka Kovacevich, Certified Inbound Marketing & Sales Professional
In building successful businesses, I find that creating a new and innovative product or service is usually the easy part. The hard part is providing the leadership required to align and motivate all the constituents and players – from engineers, to investors, vendors, and ultimately customers.
Great entrepreneurs are not just idea people and then managers, they are extraordinary leaders.
Most investors admit that they invest primarily in people, not ideas, and they inherently believe that they can sense this leadership ability needed to get the rapid growth and 10x return we all strive for. Yet beyond a list of noble attributes, like vision, courage, and integrity, it’s hard for them to define what separates an ordinary entrepreneur or manager from an extraordinary leader.
Are you ready to make the rest of 2013 full of amazing, memorable achievements?
Back at the beginning of this New Year, I remember thinking that most of us were going to be paying a whole lot more attention to achieving our most important goals!
Every email I received spoke about how different this year was going to be compared to the last one. Patterns which make us less than happy! Deep in your core, you know that realistically all of your goals are possible. Attainable. Can be done. Have been done by others. Many others!!!
This workshop will ensure that you have someone, for the rest of 2013 who genuinely cares and is always in the wings -- that you will report to on a regularly scheduled basis.
You will be able to strategically move forward, step-by-step with full intent instead of wishful thinking toward your major goals.
Join with us if you can use some help with getting what you want, deserve and desire, AND IF you are open to helping others reach their goals, at the same time.
How everyone was determined to get focused and clear about their resolutions, goals and the actions they needed to take! Yet, in the last five months, sadly, too many of us have fallen right back into the same old trap of repeating the same old patterns with the same old results. With almost half the year slipping away, we may be working harder, but it's not bringing us any closer to getting what we need! It seems to be business as usual... which is of course, why everything seems the same. So what happened to those New Year's resolutions about getting more satisfaction out of life? A better network of good friends? Shifting gears into a major lifestyle change? Getting more customers? A promotion, raise or finally, fully and truly committing to kick-starting that dream business that will free you from the 9-5 grind? But, you also know that you are the only one who can give yourself the permission to become the spark-plug to creating a better life. That you have to become responsible enough to make the right choices, take the right steps and consistently improve your thought process! This event is part of a series that is carefully designed to propel you toward reaching your goals for 2013 through personalized, one-on-one accountability. Plus, for additional reinforcement you will also have the option to access an on-going supportive group of people who deeply care and are motivated to help you get what you want by the end of this year.
On Wednesday, June 5th, come meet your 2013Accountability Partner and make a bee-line to your success by getting matched up with a dedicated Accountability Partner.
Typically defined, capital is any asset that you can store and rely upon, and it comes in many forms. The most easily recognized economic capital consists of stock, bonds, real estate, cash, and things like equipment, vehicles or an art collection that are part of your net worth picture.
Other types, usually not included, but which can be just as valuable include, human capital such as family, friends, your career, connections, and those who work with you.
When you establish healthy win-win relationship with people, your human capital account grows and can ... MORE: http://sco.lt/6VyMSH

About Theatre Row Diner:It's perfectly situated in the heart of the Off-Broadway district at the corner of 42nd Street and Dyer Avenue which is located between 9th and 10th Avenues. Its high-tech, sleek, artistic design puts every other diner out there to shame for not recognizing that a happy, clean environment is good for business. The food menu consists of typical (but very good) American offerings; the service is wonderful and I easily give it 5-STARS!
Prices* are reasonable and please note that even though there's no set minimum to purchase, we are expected to order something during our Meetup.

We're easy to find: Walk right in... The lounge is located directly to your left when you arrive in the Museum's lobby. Our table is located immediately to your right as you enter the lounge.
We'll spend a couple of hours socializing and getting to know each other with plenty of time left-over after the Meetup to tour the Rubin galleries which contain the western world's premier Himalayan art collection -- solo or with fabulous new friends -- whichever suits you best!
Admission to the galleries is FREE on Fridays from 6pm to 10pm which allows us to spend extra time after our Meetup hanging without having to end the evening until closing time.
Table service is available and please notethat you are responsible for your own drinks, food and tips. Or, you can order straight from the bar if you prefer.
Here's what's on the Agenda for the evening to get the conversation sparks flying for fast and easy connections to celebrate our new friendships:

You may, if you wish, join us with the intention to seek out at least one person to speak with who has the same interests that you do. It can be anything you want: such as art, books, sports, film, restaurants; whatever you enjoy the most!
Idea: Why not bring with you also the intention to have a conversation with at least one other person who has very different interests or point of view so that you can learn something new, something interesting; something which may amuse or amaze you?
This get-together is meant to be totally informal and relaxed. Please feel free to wander around if you want to checkout the bookstore, art or bar.
Just be sure to return back to us because we'll want to speak with you some more for sure!

At The End of The Day, Every Blogger's Reality Is That There's No Time Leftover To Market, Sell or Promote Their Creation.
Any Blogger will tell you that cranking out quality content on a consistent basis is a time-sucking joy ride. That, customized interaction planning to engage and grab potential subscribers' interest cannot be improved.
Besides, isn't that why God created "Comments"?
Right! That is, if you don't mind growing old waiting for your audience to say something, anything. Just so you'll know you've made some kind of an impression.
Misconceptions concerning the use of Social Media are plentiful. False information is everywhere. And, the prevailing myths focus on misleading novice marketers into believing that anyone can be an instant success -- but, only if they figure how the big guys do it;the money will quickly follow.
By relying on such random tactics and copy-cat thinking, it's no wonder most Bloggers are stuck, unable draw in more than a few occasional visitors. Visitors, who don't stick around long enough to bother subscribing.
With competition this fierce, 99% of the time the results are depressingly dicey. Inevitably, doubt begins to creep in that this whole Blogging thing is far more challenging than it promised to be.
Welcome to the Blogosphere! A noisy, hectic place getting louder with every passing second. New Blogs springing up, offering a regurgitation of the same topics. Multiple screens luring your visitors here, there and everywhere.
So how can a Blogger even think that engagement is likely to occur? Or, even possible under the circumstance where you have millions of distractions, from every corner of planet earth that are equally trying to get their message across?
How do you stand out long enough to get them to notice you? To get your ideas considered, absorbed and appreciated by the very people you must reach?
Meet Poutsch: Your Free Interactive Opinion Toolbox If you're feeling serious doubts -- don't rush to abandon your Blog, just yet.

Questions flooded my mind. I needed answers. I also knew that many of these questions were exactly what my audience, interested in marketing their businesses cared about as deeply, as I did.
And, since that was obvious to me, I knew Poutsch would benefit, across the board any other on-line business, blogger or website owner, as well; helping them to engage their audience to want to stick around and come back for more of the same.

Contemporary Art Lovers Gather at Caffe Dante for an Afternoon Meetup
Please leave your technology at home! Dante's is all about live engagement. No laptops allowed! Conversation encouraged.
The perfect networking setting for contemporary art lovers, our Caffe Dante Afternoon Meetup will start at 2pm and ends whenever we wish. The ambiance in the place is terrific and highly conducive for great conversation at this authentic Italian cafe which has been in the Village since 1915 serving poets, artists, actors, bohemians, beatniks, playwrights and more currently hipsters, students, tourists and locals their delicious espresso brew.
Forget about Starbucks! The coffees at Dante's are out of this world and alcoholic beverages along with real Italian pastries and sodas are also available from their huge menu selection. Reasonably priced and one of my most favorite hangouts for meetings; business and social.
My regular: Steamed Machiato in a glass! Consistently delicious and extra foamy just the way I like it.
This historical venue is a favorite with famous ghosts and living celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Whoppi Goldberg, Al Pacino, Robert Deniro, Jerry Seinfeld and most recently spotted going in was poet, singer-songwriter, Patti Smith.
Dante's faces Bob Dylan's former townhouse (No. 94) where the renowned, celebrity-stalker, A.J. Weberman persistently made off with the Dylan family's trash in search of collectibles and which apparently, from what I recall led to a fistfight between him and Dylan down the block on Houston Street.
A.J. Weberman happily digging through Bob Dylan's trash.
Hope you can make it! This should be a fun and relaxed way for us to meet each other, talk a bit about the New York art scene, share stories about our favorite artists, upcoming shows, and get some new adventures rolling!
And, seriously, this is their policy... Please leave your technology at home and join us for this radical approach to networking where electronics are not allowed. That's a good thing because the old-fashioned way of building social and business relationships through interaction, engagement and conversation actually works!
Organizer Fee: $5 (With On-line RSVP)
$8 (Cash at Meetup - Seating NOT guaranteed)
Maximum Attendees Invited: 15
At the cafe, separate checks will be issued for each member's order.
Please note that it is required that all attendees order something to drink or eat during this event at their own expense.
The Organizer Fee is applied only toward event promotion expenses incurred by the Organizer.
Please tip the hardworking waitstaff generously with a minimum of at least 20%.
"I've been going to Caffe Dante and drinking cappuccinos with my friends for five years. It's where Bob Dylan used to go, and I know all the waitresses, who have been following my career. I really love it here because it's right where Dylan used to live, and there's a real spirit here that I'm always down for."
--Matt White, Musician
"I've been going to Caffe Dante for over 20 years. In the beginning, I even worked there for a while; a short commute from my apartment down the block on MacDougal Street. In those days, before they expanded the size of the cafe they had a live mandolin player, a musician named Sebastian, and 99% of the customers ordered in Italian which I didn't speak.
Decades later I'm still hooked on their Steamed Machiato and hanging out with friends at Dante's."
