Using Words That Matter (Sell)

"It's the damn economy's fault!" -Most small business owners It's not the economy, it's not that your people are lazy or any other multitude of reasons that you may be falling behind. A major component as to why you're unable to sell your product and/or service is because your words STINK! Being "good" is simply not good enough! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to be "the absolute best" and to use the most compelling words possible in order to sell what you offer. In this video,…See More

Biography
You can check out my brief story here: http://bit.ly/9X0UDq

I want to give back to the F&B community that gave me so much. My background (aside from five years of restaurant experience) encompasses local SEO, permission marketing and copywriting, which, when fused together, helped me to create a number of incredible start-ups.

I created my company, Triple Your Tips, and contribute to FOHBOH to accomplish five primary objectives:

1. To help restaurant employees maximize their potential and show how much they care about their guests;

2. To help create dining experiences that people feel are worth talking about;

3. To teach others how to use basic online tools to establish their personal brands;

4. To positively influence others and help them understand that their attitude and mindset define, and will continue to define, their circumstances;

5. To show that I actually care.

Shoot me a line at brooks@tripleyourtipsbook.com or check out my site at http://tripleyourtipsbook.com as I would love to meet you! Thank you for your time and choose to live well. You deserve it.

Why Facebook Ads "Work" (And Why They Don't At All)

Posted on October 13, 2010 at 7:00am 2 Comments

"Wow, I forgot how awesome Facebook makes their ads look," I thought to myself. I was in the midst of creating a Facebook fan page for my FOH training start-up and was looking at the ad preview that Facebook generates to entice the fan page owner to advertise.



Creating the ad design for the consumer automatically (based on the company's logo and description) is a slick move on Facebook's part but I was immediately reminded of the utter failure that I had experienced with this… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
