A recent presentation at the Des Moines 140 Character Conference featuring NOVEC 1230 Fire Protection Fluid held the attention of roughly 150 persons in attendance. The conference was held this past May at the Stoner Theater in the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines. It was simultaneously broadcast over the internet. This is a clip of my presentation entitled:  It Sucks To Be Left Behind.

The 140 Character Conferences seek to highlight the use of social media in a variety of ways. I took the wild chance of submitting an application about how I’m trying to position myself (and my company, Protex Central) as the “go-to” solutions provider. I’ve had several inquiries on the agent and much disbelief that it’s not water. It’s not magic – it’s just technology at it’s best.

For sometime now, I’ve been challenging myself to get my web-presence-thingy figured out. Two events have tipped the scales: (1) Meeting The Social Media Bible author, Lon Safko, and reading said bible and (2) Receiving a one-hour consultation with Nancy Laine, The LinkedIn Concierge, as a gift from the best personal performance and executive coach in the world, Dr. Tom Hanson.

Basically, I like to share and be helpful. It finally dawned on me that’s exactly what blogging and social media offers and for free, too. I’ve figured if I can be helpful to others through blogging and participating in the social media realm, then I’m really satisfying a basic need of mine. A win-win!

And so it is that beginning in the new 2011 year, Onward and Upward is going to get much more active – maybe not daily, but certainly every other day or so.  I’ve signed up to participate in WordPress’ postaweek2011 challenge.  I’m open to the new possibilities and excited to learn and share.

Please feel free to subscribe to and comment on Onward and Upward or to connect with me on LinkedIn, Twitter or FaceBook.  You can also e-mail me at shawnpci.mullen@gmail.com.

Here’s to a great 2011 and beyond!

Tampa Bay Ray’s star first baseman, Carlos Pena, and I were recently featured together  in a teleseminar hosted by Dr. Tom Hanson of Heads-Up Performance.

Hanson was interviewing professionals who’ve had a “career year” and seeking insights on how it was accomplished.

I was honored to be asked to participate alonside the likes of Carlos Pena, no less.
