Now, Make me feel important!

In How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, we learn that the need to feel important, is one of the most powerful emotions that we humans experience.  Whether you’re looking to sell a product or sell yourself, the best and most effective way to get your goals accomplished is to make other people feel heard and feel sincerely appreciated.  What better way to be remarkable and word-of-mouth friendly than to prominently promote others without any direct benefit? 


Rebecca Thorman and Valeria Maltoni  put together a list of quality bloggers sorted by “W” for women and “M” for men.  Rebecca graciously included me on her quality “M” list.  Good word-of-mouth is portable and easy to spread.  Feel free to spread the word-of-mouth and make your favorite bloggers feel important.
