Make 6 New Referrals With A 3-minute Talk

How My 3-minute Talk Made 6 New Referrals Caught off-guard, I was given 3 minutes to introduce myself and my company in front of 20 business owners. The result? Six hot referrals came rushing in. It feels like striking a triple-7 on a jackpot.29 August 2008, I am inducted as a member of BNI-Rendezvous, a group made up of small business owners that give each other business referrals every week.The funny thing is… 10 years ago, I was invited to join BNI by my Navy friend, Sim Chow Boon, who was also the founder of Singapore’s BNI.Social and business networking is not something in my comfort zone. My Videography business expanded not due to any effort in networking and marketing, but by my video works being passed around and catching attention. My works speak for themselves.So 10 years on, why did I finally decide to join BNI?The simple answer is I am transforming myself from a self-employed to a business owner. I am applying the teachings Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad Poor Dad.Bein…

What Everybody Ought to Know About Adrian's Personal Life to Include Adrian’s Personal Blogs I am cracking my head whether to blog personal stuff other than Videography and DVD Production.My life is currently revealed in bits and pieces across facebook, twitter, blogspot and MSN.Maintaining several blogs can be tiring and you lose focus when nothing is happening in that area of life.Sometimes they overlap and you have to decide which one to write on. Writing every topic in one blog is going against what Internet Marketing Gurus have taught me.So I checked out some famous blogs and another blog with the same question.My decision? I will experiment for 3 months blogging everything here, in personal life is made up of a wide variety of topics, including social networking, raising kids, maintaining a car, managing real estate, building a business, internet marketing and more.I will only blog the positive and the best experience.This will be a web log for myself, for my family, friends, busine…

To Choose DV Video Encoder Type 1 or 2 ?

DV Video Encoder Type 1 OR Type 2 When it comes to rendering video to DV format, sometimes we face a delimma of choosing between DV Video Encoder Type 1 and DV Video Encoder Type 2.Here’s a quick answer for video makers using miniDV tape format. Choose DV Video Encoder Type 2.If you want to know why, read the following explanation taken from microsoft site.DV Video Encoder Type-1 MethodThe native DV interleaved stream that is produced and consumed in I/O with a DV device contains DV compressed video and pulse code modulated (PCM) audio data. This single interleaved stream can be stored in an AVI file as “ivas” stream (for interleaved video/audio stream). Microsoft refers to this format as a type-1 DV AVI file.Because the type-1format stores data as a single AVI stream, type-1 DV AVI files are not compatible with VfW. DirectShow, however, easily handles type-1 data streams by routing the streams to a DV Splitter filter that produces a DV-encoded video stream and one or more PCM audi…

Read My Photo Mode Review of the Sony HDR-SR12 and CX12 ...

Photo Mode Review of the Sony HDR-SR12 and CX12 After collecting my Sony HDR-SR8 (100GB High Definition Hard Drive Handycam Camcorder) from the Sony service centre, I stopped to test the new Sony HDR-SR12 (10 Megapixel 120GB High Definition Hard Drive Handycam Camcorder) and the Sony HDR-CX12 (High Definition Memory Stick PRO Duo Handycam Camcorder)I only had a few minutes of free time, so I tested these features I wanted to know:How long do I have to wait between snapping photos?How long do I have to wait for the photo flash to recharge?How many photos can I take during video recording and will there be flash?How long do I have to wait between snapping photos?I have bad experiences with slow consumer still cameras. You miss a lot of good candid moments if the camera does not react as quick as your eyes. I hesitate to buy a family still camera because of this. The Sony HDR-SR12 and CX12 seem to do fine, instant, though you need to get used to the half click focusing first.There is n…
