Kelly Barber and her sister Wendi Cihacek share their journey with pancreatic cancer. Kelly talks honestly and emotionally about losing her husband, George, in 2006 to Pancreatic Cancer. Wendi did the unimaginable and moved across the state to support her sister and help with her niece, Megan, who was 2 at the time. Kelly took her pain and grief and turned it into something positive. She became involved with her local PanCAN affiliate, attending meetings, raising awareness and funds and sharing her journey with Members of Congress. Not surprisingly Wendi stepped in and supported her at every turn. Kelly shares, “When we first got started, it was just for George. Today, it’s still for George, but it’s also for all the people we’ve met who are alive and fighting.”  Only on www.octalkradio.net Orange County’s only Community Radio Station, livestreams from UCI Beall Applied Innovation Center @TheCove www.facebook.com/LivingHope2055

How to Promote Your Book on LinkedIn (without being salesy)

Posted in book publishing, Business on August 29, 2021 by OC Talk Radio

LinkedIn is a powerful network with more than 740M active users. We’re all on it and we’re all talking at each other. But we may not be using the platform in the way it was intended. For savvy entrepreneurs and book authors, LinkedIn has become a new source of revenue. It’s probably good to know that book marketing on the platform doesn’t have to be a hard sales pitch–it should be an education and networking opportunity. 

Joining us today is LinkedIn and sales expert and author of Entrepreneur’s Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for Business, Ted Prodromou.

Storytelling has been used to shape and redefine events in order to persuade and change possible outcomes in history.  Storytelling evolved as a way to ensure that history was handed down from generation to generation, so historical events were retold over and over to educate and entertain an audience.

Join me at the Cafe as I explore the value and strategies of storytelling, along with some practical advice on establishing your story’s premise
