Last Friday we were honored to welcome Kim Riley, President of Hylant Nashville, to a standing room only crowd for the first Williamson County Chamber of Commerce First Friday of 2015. Kim’s topic “Network Your Way Into Success” had the crowd of 100+ eagerly taking notes for reference for their next networking event. Kim shared tips from how to own the room when you walk in, down to the type of shoes you wear. Riley’s own personal struggle to network when starting out allowed many in the crowd to relate, and realize networking is all about being prepared. Most importantly, you must know exactly what you want to achieve from each networking event. Kim breaks her networking techniques into three different categories: Networking 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0

The general consensus is that corporate generated disruptive innovations need to move outside of normal operations in order to thrive. The evidence is clear that a corporation’s current operations and natural commitment to its best customers will suppress and kill most innovations that can drive real growth. This is not a death sentence for disruptive innovation, but does mandate a strategic approach on the part of senior leadership. Most executives are in their roles because they are good at executing and scaling. But what are the options for those who have entrepreneurial skills and aspirations? They make ideal candidates to lead disruptive innovations that corporations desperately need.

Far and away, time and time again, the number one challenge for businesses trying to build an effective social media presence is their own outlook on how they need to build the content strategy. The perception is that it has to be a self-serving marketing-based strategy in order to drive traffic and help increase revenue.

Teams – we all hear about them, participate in them, live with them and die with them. We almost cannot function unless we are part of a team. With all of this work done in teams, I still scratch my head when I see how little people do to help make their teams successful.

Just days after the election, we were honored to welcome Senator Bob Corker to E|SPACES for the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce First Friday event. Senator Corker starts by sharing how humbled he is by the result of the election and addresses the frustration that some feel by the lack of progress being made in our nation’s capital. With a few initial comments, he opens the floor to a full house of business men and women eager to hear from the Senator.

Whether you are an entrepreneur doing a traditional startup or a corporate executive looking to create your company’s next great product or service, you have to start somewhere. I know—that is profound. But really, it is at the root of most entrepreneurial and corporate innovation failures. We simply never start!
