Want to raise your profile and attract opportunities? Just ask, “What would a masterchef do?” [MONDAY MICRO BREAK]

If you’ve ever lost a big contract or project to a competitor, you’ll know the true meaning of commercial frustration.

Sure, we all deal with localised dramas everyday. But losing a deal when you simply know that you are better, that you can deliver a better outcome, that you have the skills and the passion… well… that’s a feeling that can crush even the most optimistic of entrepreneurial business builders.

No-one is immune to this situation. But, for some people, it’s a rare event. You know who they are.

These are the ‘masterchefs’ of your industry.

In this Monday Micro-Break, I chat briefly with BlueChilli founder Sebastien Eckersley-Maslin about the power of ‘sharing recipes’. It’s a lesson distilled from several years observing the workings of the Key Person of Influence program.

Want to share a recipe with Anthill’s readership?

If you would like to share a ‘recipe’ with Anthill’s readership, simply click the widget bottom right and follow the prompts. Here’s what will happen.

  1. The TinyButton plugin will ask to connect with your computer’s webcam.
  2. It will then give you the opportunity to film yourself and then review your ‘recipe’
  3. If you like what you see, hit ‘Next’ and provide your details.

If you don’t like what you see, go back a step and repeat. Carpe diem!

    Great video James and Sebastien.  
    As a corporate escapee, for my first four years in business I was somewhat reluctant to give away my IP as an innovation consultant.  Now, I do it all the time.  I have free reports and cheat sheets on Slideshare (and many more to come).  I’ve also published my own six-step Innovation Recipe as a book, and ‘giving away’ my IP is generating all kinds of value for my prospects and clients.  I’m getting more demand the more IP I give away.
