Tips, Rips, and Reviews
by Michael Dalton Johnson

Beware of energy draining people.

While the melodramatic term "energy vampire" smacks of the occult and late night movies, there really are people who suck positive energy from a room as soon as they enter it. You will become drained and exhausted if you are exposed for any length of time to the negative energy these people throw.

You have probably had the experience of encountering a person who drained your energy. There is no scientific research on this subject that I am familiar with, but there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence for its existence.

Some years back we employed a part-time independent contractor who started his work at our office mid-mornings. When he entered our small office, you could feel the energy draining. This was mentioned to me by several team members. One of my colleagues likened it to a plug being pulled on a fan.

The contractor seemed to be a normal person although he was unusually quiet and never smiled. I am sure that his negative effect on those around him was unintentional. However, his presence really did cause others to become exhausted and unfocused.

It would normally be easy to simply walk away from an energy-draining person, but in a small office setting itís not always possible. I handled the situation by arranging for him work from home.

The high energy, creativity, and fun were no longer interrupted each morning.

Break a Few Rules and Build the Career
of Your Dreams

Rules of the HuntThe problem with "conventional wisdom" is that it's not always wise. It's often off target, outdated, or just plain wrong. However, when you practice a little creative rule breaking good things start to happen.

The rules below are explained in Rules of the Hunt and brief case histories and examples are given.

"To say that Rules of the Hunt is one of the most unusual business books I've ever read or reviewed would be an understatement." - Ivana Taylor, Editor, Small Business Trends

• Steal good ideas

• Never pay full price.

• Get off the phone.

• Avoid meetings with more than three people in attendance.

• Raise your prices and sell more.

• Avoid writing memos.

• Look at business as a form of playing.

• Don't tell people what to do. (There is a much better way to get what you want.)

• Turn down invitations to business lunches.

• Drop in unexpectedly on your competitors.
